My name is Eden Pearlstein. I'm a Renaissance Rapper performing under the name Eprhyme (pronounced E-prime).
I want to make a music video and I need your help!
I have a new record called 'Dopestylevsky' coming out April 26 on legendary indie label K Records and this video will be for the first single off the album- a powerful and poetic song entitled 'Life Sentence'.
'Life Sentence' is an exploration of solitary authorship- interpreting the old-world literary tradition and archetypes for the 'ADD' generation. It is a boundary and genre-crossing work that exists at the intersection of Jewish, Pop and Hip-Hop culture.
The video will be an impressionistic narrative piece following a storyline developed by me, video director Lenny Bass, and co-producer Amy Smith. We will shoot over two days in various locations in Brooklyn.
WHY I NEED YOU:
After almost 10 years of funding and releasing my own projects, I am thrilled and grateful to have the support of an awesome record label- especially one that embodies the DIY/Indie spirit like K. But the downside of working with an independent label is a lack of budget for any extras like a music video.
Through Kickstarter I, as an artist, can reach out directly to the people who enjoy, are inspired by, and believe in me and my work and offer them the opportunity to get involved on the ground level.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
You can support the project with as little as $5 or as much as $5,000. All of the funds will go towards production- lighting, props, costumes, location rental, and post-production. The more you give, the more we will have access to the kinds of resources necessary to make this video as amazing, interesting and entertaining as it can be!
By supporting this project, you will literally be making this music video with me and the rest of the crew! In return, I’m offering rewards to everyone who helps out. I consider everyone who contributes a creative collaborator and I’m very grateful for the support.
