Hello Everyone

Thank you for taking the time to look into our little project. What we are attempting to do with this music video is take the energy and sonic wizardry of a contemporary Intelligence song and make it the soundtrack to the story of a desperate and fledgling 18th century composer. We follow the maestro as he struggles with writer's block in composing his latest symphony. The frustrations he is having lead him down a dark path of debauchery and excess, pushing his mind and body to a tragic conclusion. All of this set to the song "Bong Life" and all played out in under a minute and a half. The sound and the imagery of the video will look to both juxtapose and draw parallels to the music scene's of the past and the present.

With help from the resources and talent of Seattle's local artistic community we hope to put together a work that is both convincing in detail as it is arresting visually. We are taking advantage of Seattle's remarkable source of locations and architecture to transport the viewer to a different era of Gothic dwellings, dark cobbled streets and immoral pleasure domes.

The money you would so graciously be pledging will go towards compensating the artists who- if not already donating their time free of charge- are working for a fraction of professional rates which are standard in the industry. The money would also go towards feeding the cast and crew, buying additional props needed for period detail and equipment rental.

We have cinematographer extraordinaire Ben Kasulke helming our camera as well as slicer dicer Brian Cole editing the final result. With these two champions of the industry on board I have the highest confidence that we'll be able to put out an exciting and innovative piece of work. Everyone who has come to this project has done so because they believe in the artist's putting their efforts toward it or really really like this Intelligence's music. Hopefully you are one of these people as well and we have plenty of great music, merchandise and special events to offer you as a thank you for your support.
