KICKSTARTER UPDATE - 8-17-2011 

Hey Everyone, thank you for all the support so far! We are almost half way to our goal and about half way till the deadline for our kickstarter. We would love your help to make our new music video happen because this is Beats Antique's largest collaborative project to date! 

Our shoot last week in Los Angeles went amazingly well. We are so thankful to all the talented artists, over 40 of them, who have been involved. We also have some beautiful new "SNEAK PEAK" digital trading cards created by Sequoia Emmanuelle and Daniel Jung. Hope you enjoy! Please feel free to share and repost these cards! 

Below we have posted our brand new music video "REVIVAL" this can give you an idea of the kind of videos we are excited to create. More to come soon.... 

Thank you for your support, you rock!! 

ABOUT this Project ! - 

This Kickstarter is being used for a Beats Antique music video of our new single, "Cat Skillz", off of our upcoming album, Contraption Vol. 2 to be released in October 2011.

We are raising money to produce a music video in Los Angeles, CA this August at Big Art Labs, which is already in pre-production. We have all our people, from Director to Make-up, to performers to Camera are ready to go. Weeks of planning have already happened, with daily meetings and over 40 people on crew. Everything has been budgeted out from location rental, travel, and all necessary equipment rentals.

This is a collaboration between Beats Antique and Paradox Pollack, featuring  dance choreography by Zoe Jakes and the specialized movement choreography of Paradox Pollack. Joining us will be world renowned dancers Auberon Shull, Kami Liddle, Mira Betz and Ariellah.  We are also excited to be working with some of the best stunt performers and parkour artists in Los Angeles.  This video with be razor intense, played out in technicolor tones, lots of choreographed combat, slow-motion, glitched-out sequencing, yet still committed to telling a story.

The overarching theme of this video will be the battle of the sexes, played out through choreographed dance and combat. We are very excited to work with Kickstarter and our beautiful fans to make this vision come to life. This is a call to action We want to adequately be able to give back to the amazing crew coming together to support us with this video and would love any donations that our fans would be willing to give us to make this possible. We have really great awards to the right as a way to thank you for your pledge! This is a call to action to all you amazing people!  We love you and thank you for your support!

Yours Truly,

Beats Antique

FAQ

  • This video has an extensive budget due to bringing together over 40 people, including artist and crew. When we add up rental fees and travel the amount we are raising is still under the estimated total. The space rentals and insurance and all the things it takes to pull off the kind of video we are envisioning takes an enormous amount of planning and people. We hope our rewards engaged you and make you feel like you are getting your moneys worth. Thanks for your support !
