A concert to launch the music video collaboration of artist Santiago Uceda and guitarist Brave Julius at the historic Whiteside Theatre
We're putting on a concert in a landmark theater to launch our new music video, and we hope you can help make it happen.
We're raising funds to finish and launch the video, which features the cinematic composition of Brave Julius and the conceptual work of artist Santiago Uceda. The video, directed by Uceda and shot by cinematographer Justin Smith, is for the song The Wind Kept, and was filmed at the historic Whiteside Theatre in Corvallis, Oregon. It's a unique collaboration that features live motion footage combined with hand-drawn animation, and the amazing acoustic guitar of Brave Julius.
We're not only aiming to complete the video, but are hoping to debut it live on stage at the Whiteside on March 16th during a concert featuring Brave Juilus, Kory Quinn and the Comrades and Luke Redfield for a night of Americana, indie folk and alt country.
The Whiteside is one of the last great American Vaudeville era theaters and movie palaces. It fell into disrepair and was almost demolished and gutted until it was rescued by the Whiteside Theatre Foundation. Now is turning into a performance venue once more, and it's slowly and steadily being restored to it's former glory. This is one of the only chances to experience the theater in a state of transition. We hope you can come to the show, or at least contribute to this project and earn some great incentives.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The challenges include the fact that there is no house sound or lighting system in the theatre. We also have to spread the word and market the event. We need help to pull off this concert and make it an event that does justice to this grand old venue, and the work of these two amazing artists. The biggest risk is an empty theater. The more resources we can raise, the bigger the crowd we can bring.
Only through your support can we hope to fill this amazing theater with music, art and an audience.
