About this project

In 1990, college student Richard Terzieff made the life-altering decision to purchase an independent record store named Recorded Memories. With his 20th anniversary approaching this summer we felt the time was right to look back on his incredible journey. We'll explore his passion for music, his definition of success, and his zest for life! Richard will share memories of the various artists and acts he has seen over the years. Many of whom he’s had the pleasure and honor of meeting, such as KISS, Willie Nelson, and Sam Kinison to name just a few. He'll give us an inside look at the music industry and talk about how it's changed over the years, as well as discuss how he has survived during tough economic times. From the early popularity of CD's to music downloading and file sharing, he's seen it all. Join us as we take a journey inside the life and mind of the man behind the music.


The documentary will be filmed this summer in Spokane, WA. Along with in-depth interviews with the man himself, we'll take a tour of his store, meet some of his loyal customers, find out what’s up with all the frogs, and of course there will be the requisite montage of photos!


A note about the title: "Thanks for your support!" is Richard’s favorite reply to each customer making a purchase in his store. We felt it was the perfect working title for the documentary.


Where the funds go: Over the last 4 years we’ve made 4 short films that we’re quite proud of utilizing our no-budget/DIY philosophy. We will always have the DIY spirit in us, but the time has come to bring our game to the next level. In the past we’ve been able to film on our own schedule, but this project centers on a specific moment in time. (Richard’s 20th Anniversary and the rapid demise of indie record stores.) With our subject 300+ miles away, several trips will be necessary to get all the footage we need. Additionally, higher than usual post-production costs associated with this project have brought us to Kickstarter asking for your help.

How does funding work?
Every project has a funding goal (any dollar amount) and a time limit (from 1 - 90 days) set by the project creator. When the deadline is reached, there are either of two results:

1. Funding Successful: If a project has met or surpassed its funding goal, all backers' credit cards are instantly charged and funds go directly to the project creator. Project creators are then responsible for completing the project and delivering rewards as promised.
2. Funding Unsuccessful: If a project has NOT met its funding goal, all pledges are canceled. That's it.
 

How do I make a pledge?
To make a pledge to a project, click the green “Back This Project” button on any project page. You will be asked to pick your pledge amount and select a reward. From there, you will go through the Amazon checkout process. 


If I make a pledge, when is my card charged?
If the project you’re backing is successfully funded, your card will be charged when the project reaches its funding deadline. If the project does not reach its funding goal, your card is never charged. That's why they call them pledges.

Kickstarter is a great website that is simple to use. Decide how much you want to give, make a pledge and chose a reward! It's fast, easy, and secure. 


All or nothing: Like every Kickstarter project, we must be fully funded before our time expires or no money changes hands. Any donation would be greatly appreciated, please pass the word on about our project and remember every little bit helps. You can also help spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, or your Blog. If you have any questions feel free to contact us through Kickstarter or our website at www.4d4films.com.


Last but not least: We would like to thank Richard for generously donating all of the autographed memorabilia we are offering as pledge rewards. Richard has collected each and every one of them personally over the years and will offer a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) with each item. Not only is Richard opening up his life and allowing us to make a film about his experiences, he is also helping us raise the funds necessary to do so - what a guy!


And now it's our turn to say "Thanks for your support!"
