About this project
The Film - Can't See You: The Loss and Preservation of Innocence
Although technically considered a music video, this project is more of an intense and emotional short film for Stealing Heather's second single, "Can't See You". Centered around a young girl's tragic life filled with domestic abuse, we watch her grow up in a world that tries to destroy her innocence, while her mental state begins to spiral out of control.
We're lucky to have some major talent involved, but we need your help to make this film a reality.
* There has been some confusion as to whether the video above is the film or whether the film has already been shot. We have not yet begun shooting. Believe it or not the video above is just a concept trailer that was done exclusively for this Kickstarter campaign. The reason we are here is because we need your contributions in order to get this film made.
Who is Stealing Heather?
"There are bands who exist solely on their vibe and then there are bands whose lyrics and musical energy change a part of you," says Stealing Heather's Joshua Aaron. "To us, music is about pushing boundaries and trying to make a difference in someone's life with your art."
The band's name has a deep meaning regarding the loss of innocence in today's youth due to the violence and negativity surrounding our children. Over the years we've watched as our society has taken a turn for the worse. When we were growing up we'd watch the Smurfs or Garfield on Saturday mornings. Today, everything presented to our children deals with violence and negativity. We are only creatures of our environment and the more we keep presenting our children with these images and sounds the more we will be forced to watch the outcome unfold. We are essentially stealing the innocence of our children.
What do we have and what do we need?
Throughout our career as artists we've been fortunate enough to make some amazing connections with people, and those connections have proven themselves once again by the incredible talent we have been able to bring on board this project. All of the actors, each of them with a great history of major performances on and off screen, have agreed to provide their talent pro bono as they believe so deeply in what Stealing Heather is trying to achieve. We have an incredible Director/DP (Charles Papert) who has been a part of countless feature films, as well as commitments from major distribution networks like ScreenPlay, HDNet, and BMN, and are working with many more. We plan to release this film both on- and offline around the world. That's why we need your help.
We are here on Kickstarter trying to raise funds for the many hard costs involved with this production, above and beyond the personnel mentioned above. From visual FX and post production editing suites, to editors, colorists, grips, electric, food for the cast and crew, and the costs involved in promoting and distributing the film, your generous contributions are desperately needed. Please help us to realize this amazing vision.
Thank you in advance for even considering contributing, and our most sincere gratitude to all who have already become involved.
* PLEASE NOTE: All rewards include ground and/or USPS shipping within the USA. All international reward shipments are at the recipient's expense.
