Miami's 8 Bit Wave Turn Your Favorite Videogames Into Sweet Music

Risks and challenges

8 Bit Wave has successfully produced and distributed their first album titled First Contact, a video game music album, and has also gained valuable experience in how to plan for this kind of project. 8 Bit Wave's members have won Suncoast Regional Emmy Awards for their work in music composition, arranging, video production, as well as sound design and production. All members of our team are proficient musicians with over a dozen years of training and experience.

We have already succeeded with this kind of project in the past and we know exactly what the challenges are (and how to overcome them). The toughest part in accomplishing this album will be to gain approval from the publishers of the anime franchises that are on the album. 8 Bit Wave will be obtaining the rights and licenses for specially designed artwork just for this album. Furthermore, 8 Bit Wave will be among the first in the world to perform completely new musical arrangements from anime franchises such as Pokemon, Fullmetal Alchemist, Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Clannad, Sailor Moon, Cowboy Bebop, and more!

Other challenges to consider will be figuring out how to best ship out physical rewards and make digital rewards available for all backers in a way that is efficient, simple, and easy to use for the best experience possible.

This project will NOT go over budget and WILL be delivered on time! Any resources required, but not received through this kickstarter campaign, will be personally funded by the members of 8 Bit Wave to ensure the completion of this project as we are all passionately involved in and dedicated to its success.
