The Jim Von Stein 5000 Song Project

$1,225

26

Hello,  

   My name is Jason Von Stein. My father, Jim Von Stein, is a songwriter. In his humble life, he has written well over 5000 songs. He writes because he loves to tell stories. He has made videos for his songs on youtube.com by using photo slideshows, but never had a true music video.

  My goal is to change this, and let the world hear his stories. Besides playing his songs at open mics, I am an actor. Through acting, I have met a great team of people wanting to help create a music video for him.  

   With your help, we can make that a reality. I have chosen 30 of my father’s 5000 plus songs. Over the duration of the Kickstarter, a new song will be uploaded each day, along with it's lyrics and ideas for it's music video. I'm hoping that you will help us choose what song and idea will be used to create the music video.

   Please listen to my father's songs, read his lyrics, and look at our ideas for their music videos. The song and idea with the most likes will get selected.  If you have a suggestion or an idea for a music video, I'm all ears. Most Importantly, Thank you for taking the time to look and listen. :)

Risks and challenges

I have a team of people working with me this on this project. They are the following: director, director of photography, lighting manager, script supervisor, editor, location scout, makeup, and crew. I have worked with them all before and trust them implicitly.

We have film equipment including Go Pros, Lumix G4, Black Magic, a dolly and jib. We have a lighting professional to supervise on set.

The biggest obstacle will be getting the correct actors cast for the video selected. Locations will be another obstacle. These depend on what song and video idea is selected. We will begin casting when the Kickstarter is finished. We have begun location scouting and will continue to do so.

We are looking for actors as well as writers. We are accepting actor's reels and ideas for music videos. You are welcome to submit for either. We would be happy to have you join the team.

We are planning on a two day shoot. We will begin shooting before the November holiday season with a December delivery date.
