Ranging from stripped-down guitar ballads to dense baroque electronic rock, Marvelous Mint features the writing and performances of Willie Womack. The band, though it only contains one member, is easily recognized by the colorful pastel instruments. Willie began playing keyboard at the age of 11 and soon picked up guitar, bass, and drums. The idea for the band and its colorful instruments came from playing retro games with limited yet vibrant color palettes. The bands sound is ever-shifting yet at the heart of the songs remains a signature style. Marvelous Mint is currently in the process of recording and mixing 2 albums: the retro electronic album The Source of Your Problems and the pop rock album Behind the Times.

Synopsis: A man struggles to bring his girlfriend out of a depression after a traumatic drowning incident.

 

Joe Murphy is the director of ‘Your New Lifestyle.’ He directed Fuzzy Maths ‘Flying Saucers’ music video last year. The project took three months of filming to achieve its visual effects. Joe cannot contain his excitement that 'Your New Lifestyle' will be filmed over 3 days.

The theme behind one of Marvelous Mints albums called The Source of Your Problems is about being content with what you have. We wanted to stay true to that theme as we set our Kickstarter goal by being resourceful with using equipment and other things we already have. After taking into account what we are contributing personally, we’ve created a moderate budget of $1,000. 

The funds we raise on Kickstarter will go towards:

  • Lighting & Grip Rentals
  • Talent
  • Costumes
  • Props
  • Locations
  • Other production costs

We are excited to collaborate on Marvelous Mints music video "Your New Lifestyle" song and we want to share in the journey of reaching this Kickstarter goal with our supporters and people interested in this project. Make sure to check back over the course of this Kickstarter for news in all aspects of production.

Thank you! 

Risks and challenges

There are challenges we are motivated to overcome in order to complete this project.

Two major challenges - (1) creating a breakaway window and (2) underwater filming - will be addressed in future update videos as we experiment in preparation of the shoot.

Other foreseeable challenges have to do with casting and locking down a location for the dock scene.

The supporting role in this music video is demanding. We need someone who is not only comfortable in front of the camera, but also an experienced swimmer.

We have submitted a location permit to film on the Madrona Park dock in Seattle. If we are able to obtain a permit, we will need to have a strategy to keep the dock clear as it is a very popular spot in the summer. Possible back-ups are Seward Park & Magnuson Park.

Make sure to check back in to our Kickstarter page as we update with news on these challenges!
