**UPDATE: FUNDED!!
WE DID IT!!! (jumping up and down!!!) This is AMAZING!! THANK YOU ALL!! & Don't stop now.. We could really use MORE to make this video the best EVER, and to market & promote it & build our whole WEniverse of the Birthday Movement!!  Every dime will go towards this vision. $6,600 was our *minimum* needed & since it's all or nothing, that's what we asked for. NOW let's shoot for NEW goal...how about $8,800?!

Our director/filmmaker DJ Turner from www.filamentfeatures.com says this today in message  to me: "Muahahahaa! Congrats girl! Keep pushing. 10 grand is our sweet spot. With that we can make this thing friggin rediculous." So I'm taking his word for it, the more the merrier!

I am so inspired now to get up a website, write a credo of celebration & expression, get to posting recipes, making videos, blogging, writing a rock opera musical and so much more! I realize the Movement is about WE. I remember that I /we am a creator. This Kickstarter Project has pulled so much more productivity out of me than in a long time, and it's because I am focusing on something that truly brings me JOY. That's partly because I am getting to reconnect and collaborate with so many of my amazing friends who I will be in the video, who truly do blow my mind with their various talents, and because I am learning to trust my inner knowing of what's holistically best for me & WE. This is a collaboration I am so honored to be representing right now...YES!

Collectively learning how to celebrate life in a truly joyful manner, learning how PLAY & return to innocence, while taking care of each other & our planet...It's our life's work-or should I say, Life's PLAY.
I feel it's something I can dedicate myself to....
This Kickstarter, song and movement can start a creative revolution.
We're SO glad you're a part of it!
Help us spread the word as much as possible in these last 24 hours and make $8,800 or more!


BIRTHDAYS RULE!!

Who do you know that is having a birthday soon? Wouldn’t it be amazing to send them an original video you had a part in creating? The Amaezing Birthday Song is a soulful, positive alternative to the boring old Birthday Song, and It's the seed of what is being called "The Birthday Movement."

What is the Birthday Movement? Well, the Birthday Movement is an elevated way to celebrate life sustainably, using principles of gratitude, growth, community, truth, silliness, creative expression, and FUN!
We need YOU to get involved in the celebration & creation of this Movement too!

THE LYRICS to The Amaezing Birthday Song really reflect the spirit of what we are up to!  Check it out:

"Baby look how old you are, Baby look how young.
Celebrating all the laps you've made around the sun.
It's safe to say we're all Amazed at all you have Become.
So Baby whatchu waitin' for? the party's just begun!
Look at you!
Look how Beautiful you are!
Yes it's true...
You're the Birthday Superstar!
Yes I do...
I hope your wish comes true,
Yes WE do...
We know all your Dreams come true!
so Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you, because you know that we Love you!
Happy Birthday to YOUUUUUUU!!!!!”

The Song is just the Beginning, but it's the key to spreading the movement. The song is written by Amae Love and produced by musical mastermind Stefan Broadley- he's like Stevie Wonder on those keys! This kooky duo have been collaborating for many years now and the Amaezing Birthday Song is their latest most precious offering! Our goal with this Kickstarter project is: We want to provide a true alternative birthday song to the world!! To do that, we need to make a Kick-Ass PRO MUSIC VIDEO of the song that can go viral! All is in place, we have an *amazing* script, director, talent. (more on that below!) With YOUR help that dream can become reality! It's our Birthday Gift to the World~! 

I am asking all supporters of this song to join me in spreading the word. It's gonna take a lot of us telling a few people and then them telling a few people, to pull this off, but I have faith we can do it!! We have some Awesome rewards, Please check them out! "Like" and share the Amaezing Birthday Song & this Kickstarter page, which we are going to be updating frequently!

Singing to people on their birthdays gives me great joy, and I would love nothing more than for it to be my way of life.
As a vocalist, songwriter, designer, dancer and chef, my dream is that a Birthday Movement can help me weave together all the aspects of my creative self into a project that showcases not only MY art, but my community's and our wildly passionate LOVE of life!! And of course, to make sure that birthdays worldwide are properly celebrated- with a song that tells the truth about how awesome they are, and reminds them that their dreams are already coming true.

I have simply the most talented group of friends you can imagine: dancers, directors, clowns, producers, musicians, designers, comedians, filmmakers, photographers, painters, digital artists, hoopers, stilters, fire dancing, builders.... you name it, we got it in spades! My vision is to bring all of our talents to bear in this video. www.filamentfeatures.com will be handling our directing & filming needs, with members of world class performance troupe Lucent Dossier in the cast. http://www.lucentdossier.com/ also we will be using member of the uber-pro slick performance crew, Zen Arts. http://www.zenartsla.com/

BUDGET: So we went the professional route and got a real budget done. We will be pulling favors as we can, and as needed, But we needed to be realistic about what we will need, to do this really professionally. Location, equipment, director, filmmakers, talent, makeup, food, costumes, lighting, props, editing, and marketing... it all really adds up. To make & promote this video right, it's gonna cost 10k. Anything less is compromising to the vision. So of course we'd love to make even MORE than we asked for. Keep in mind we need to raise AT LEAST what we asked for, or we won't get any of it!
Because of this, we are shooting for $6k which is the absolute bare minimum we would need to pull this off. We have set our amount at $6600 because Kickstarter & Amazon's fees will take about 8%. So give what you can, and let others know!

Check this page for more updates as time goes on!
We have some surprises in store as the campaign progresses! Among them: an incredible cake recipe video, a music video or 2, some featured fly guest videos, and more!!
