Los Amigos Invisibles, a Venezuelan funky-dance band, celebrates 20 years together. Help complete a documentary film of their journey.
ALL BACKERS WILL HAVE THEIR NAME APPEAR IN THE END CREDITS AS ASSOCIATE PRODUCERS, SO GET OUT THERE AND GET YOUR FRIENDS TO BECOME BACKERS OF THIS PROJECT TOO!!! ****************************************************************************************
Summer 2010, La Casa del Ritmo was born after a chance encounter between Juan and LAI bass player Catire, and a conversation about LAI celebrating 20 years together as a band. 20 AÑOS!
Now the documentary would not be complete without a concert sequence that intertwines the stories together and we plan on doing just that – filming Los Amigos on March 11th at the Highline Ballroom here in NYC.
Why $30K? Because we have to cover the following costs:
• Cover costs for a sound engineer to record the March 11th show
• Cover costs to film at the Highline Ballroom
• Cover costs for all the remaining video editing and post production of the film
Once we complete the documentary, we are gifting the rights of the film to Los Amigos Invisibles, so think of your support of this project as YOUR way of saying GRACIAS to Los Amigos Invisibles, for 20 years of gozadera!.
You can visit www.lacasadelritmo.net to learn more about the film, the production crew, and watch an intro sequence that will give you a sense of what La Casa del Ritmo is shaping up to be.
Follow us on twitter @casadelritmo and on Facebook - search for La Casa del Ritmo - we have multiple updates each day!
