***UPDATE***************************************************************************

****************************************************************************************

Hello, this is Rickstar, and I need your help.

I’m currently developing a music video for my single, “Been Around the World” off my second EP, “Eclectic State of Mind.” The video centers around a scientist who spends days in his lab in order to create a rocket ship. With this ship he journeys into space in search of his one true love, having not been able to find her on Earth. 

Check out these animated storyboards for a glimpse of what we're working towards: 

I’ve recruited several New York filmmakers to help me realize this vision. Daniel Tantalean has signed on as Director, Jen Winterbotham as Producer, Andrew Hendrix as Director of Photography, and Mayra Amaya as Production Designer. We are building two sets as well as several models for the scenes that take place in space.

This is where you come in! As our fans, family, and friends, we are asking for your help in raising $3000 to fund the production costs of the video.

Your pledge goes towards large production expenses such as studio rental, equipment rentals (lights, C-stands, apple boxes, lenses, etc), and production design (sets, props, wardrobe)--anything that will really enhance the production value of the video. In return, we’re offering several incentives from a digital copy of the finished video to a chance to be on set while we are filming.

If you are unable to contribute financially, don’t sweat it! Help us out by spreading the word through Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or however you see fit.  

I really believe in this song and know with the proper funds we can create a really fun, unique video that will help create a larger following for the EP and myself as an artist.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

There are countless risks and challenges associated with production of any kind, but I assure you my team and I are ready to hit them head on. With this project, creating the desired visual effects and special effects on such a low budget is one of the largest challenges we face, but we have already begun testing to ensure that there are no complications on the day of filming. We are already working on developing "Plan B" strategies should something go wrong during production. I am confident that we will have an awesome looking end product and can't wait to share it with you!
