About

I want to make a new music video for the song 'Daily Cycle' off my 2014 debut album 'The Way I See The World'.

Here be the waiata:

I don't meet the criteria for a grant so I'm trying this method of asking people for a hand up.  Just trying to make something happen for positive energy in music in NZ.

It is gonna be dope, to be directed by my homie Mikey Rockwell at Rockwell Studio.  He is responsible for quite a few awesome videos, including the following:

 and

I can promise you there will be cool imagery you can crank 100 times without getting bored and it will be as fun as a Dr Seuss book.  If it is not then you can cook me some eggs lol.  Yeah, it will be all good.

This is another step in the journey of an authentic, original life, authored by the Atua, on the shoulders of giants and in the footsteps of inspiration.

When I let things flow I do my best to create a positive future for myself and everyone around me.  This is just another part of that.

Enough of the dark days and darker nights.  Let's bring that light to our daily lives and enjoy every moment of our existance.

Esoligh exists for all people, good and bad, he aims to "civilise every savage" and bring that positivity.  He represents my higher self.  We all have a higher self, the thing to do is to connect to that and live from that place.

My vision is for this video to help you do that whenever you watch it.

Risks and challenges

Unless I get all the money it will be hard to make this happen. I will do my best to do it anyway, through saving my own money as well. Just know that your pledges are gratefully received. Everyone I work with takes a professional approach to their craft so I forsee things will be done in a timely, inspired and professional fashion. I am very committed to the fulfillment of all rewards and will move mountains to keep to my word.

    You will be written into the script for the video somehow according to your attributes and interests. My director will somehow utilise your uniqueness to add something to the video. You get to be on YouTube and potentially on some form of redundant music television lol.
