Over 3 years ago we formed our comedy band. The first song we wrote was called Panty Survey. We immediately shot a music video:

We loved working together! Next we did a full length album:

To promote the album we started playing live shows.

The band got along so well, we all moved to live in a loft together.

It was all super fun, but if we REALLY want to get our name out there, we need to do something HUGE...

Doing live shows only exposes us to a few people at a time. We believe our "You Need More" music video will get hundreds of thousands of views. That kind of exposure is a real game changer for the band.

Risks and challenges

As a production team, we have addressed possible issues and prepared back-up plans to avoid set backs.

* Our crew members are well versed in many aspects of production. They can step-in to a new position if necessary to avoid a schedule delay.

* We have an alternate location that allows us to move forward without changing the shoot date in the event our current location becomes unavailable.

* The backing up of data will be handled on site on the day of the shoot by a professional.

* We will be insured for the shoot with a policy that will cover equipment, injuries, among other liabilities that we could encounter.
