About this project

BLEEDING AUDIO is a feature-length documentary featuring THE MATCHES, a band from Oakland, CA, who experienced a meteoric rise in the mid-2000s, signing with Epitaph Records, and quickly putting out 3 records produced by the likes of Tim Armstrong (Rancid), Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion), Nick Hexum (311), Mark Hoppus (blink-182), and John Feldmann (Goldfinger).

The Matches were featured on Vans' Warped Tour for multiple years, toured independently and with bands like Reel Big Fish, Yellowcard, Sugarcult and Zebrahead, played at SXSW countless times, and started an all-ages music series in Oakland called L3 ("Loud, Live, Local"), promoting local bands and providing a safe place for kids to connect with music. Fellow Oakland band Green Day's bassist Mike Dirnt was even a fan, stating, “I’m listening to The Matches. They’re a great band!"

Then, for reasons explored in the film for the first time ever (and closely tied to the band's artistic rights), The Matches disappeared. 

Bleeding Audio examines how The Matches’ career parallels the Digital Age of the Music Industry, and uses the band’s meteoric rise, surprising fall, and inspiring reunion to explore how artists can navigate careers in a digital era, and what happens after most musicians stop touring. 

It's a documentary intended not only to take you back stage with a VIP all-access badge to rock and hang with the band, but also a film ambitiously aimed to help any artist learn valuable lessons from The Matches’ experience. Examining the ever-changing Music Industry, Bleeding Audio begs the question, “What does it really take to make it as a musician?”

Bleeding Audio is also a film about how the collective hearts and souls behind bands — the FANS — have the power to keep a band alive even when technically it's not. This is a film about the power of music.

We're raising funds on Kickstarter to finish Bleeding Audio, to hire an amazing editor and colorist for our team, and with their help build a visually-rich story out of 100+ hours of film shot over the last three years!

Please join us! Together we can tell The Matches' story and help artists everywhere for years to come!

 

 

We had such a wonderful experience with our first Kickstarter and built a community we adore. It only made sense to take what we learned from before, come back and do it again!

For those who have traveled this road with us from the very start: THANK YOU. Truly. Your generous contributions helped fund much of BLEEDING AUDIO'S film production budget. This allowed us to capture insightful interviews with music industry professionals and musicians who played a part in The Matches’ career, many of whom shared personal experiences and perspectives on the changes in the music industry.

Editorial

The minimum amount we need for getting a finished “picture lock” edit of the film is $35,000. This is covering editorial costs only. This number will secure us a talented documentary editor for 3 months, transcripts of our interviews, and will get us from an assembly, to a rough cut, and down to a finished picture edit. What are those things? An assembly is like a sketch of the film: it's a super long outline edit of the whole movie. A rough cut is the pared down version of the assembly and the closest to a final version. There are usually a few rough cuts. Picture lock is the finished film!

3 Months of Adobe Premiere Pro, yo!

In order to fully fund our finishing costs, we will need an additional $20,000 for color correction, sound mixing & motion graphics. 

Color Correction

Color correction is the art of taking all of the footage and evening out the colors and making them pop! A lot of visual styles in cinema are expressed through stylized color adjustments.

Color correction is magic.
Color correction is magic.

Sound Mixing

Sound mixing on documentaries is always tricky! Sometimes we have people wired with microphones, and sometimes backstage all we have is the on camera mic. That means the sound is either really great or.....really muddled with all kinds of background noise. Getting this sound mixed, cleaned up, and evened out will be essential to making our film festival and screen ready.

Motion Graphics

There’s a lot of information about how money funnels from music sales to musicians. It’s not something you want to sit and just listen to. In order to spice up some of these presentations, we want to hire a motion graphics artist to design and animate data and more complex themes to make them easy to digest and understand.

 We've introduced the film....now meet the people making it!

Originally from the wild west of Colorado, Chelsea is a Bay Area filmmaker who has spent the last three years documenting The Matches for her film BLEEDING AUDIO. She’s directed two narrative short films, and makes a living traveling the world making videos for companies like Adobe, HP, and Uber. She is a close friend of The Matches, and has been able to intimately capture incredible footage to tell their story and investigate the realities of the digital shift the music industry has faced.

For more than a decade Ryon Lane has worked in film and commercial production, producing commercials, independent festival-screened films, VR and aerial content, and spec projects for media agencies, tech companies, and many other F500 companies.. Worked at CAA and Innovative Artists prior to serving in Business Affairs at Lionsgate and Intermedia Films, and has appeared as a speaker and judge at various film festivals.

 The WE BLEED AUDIO cover song EP includes Matches covers with Tom from Plain White T's, Curious Quail, Tiny Stills AND August Brings!

The Decomposer Button-Eye Sunglasses! These are designed by artist and fan of The Matches: Michelle Stewart. Check out more of her work on Instagram.

Enamel pins seem to be the hot new thing, so we had to jump on board.

The Bleeding Audio custom-made knit beanies.

Your very own Bleeding Audio Coffee Mug! **Please note these are a placeholder and we'll have more accurate color depictions as the campaign continues!

The Bleeding Audio T-Shirt! Director Chelsea Christer is a huge Hitchcock fan and wanted to play tribute to Saul Bass's masterpiece Vertigo poster. Considering Vertigo is a San Francisco classic and The Matches hail from the Bay Area, it was a perfect fit. Chelsea, Shawn and Justin from The Matches worked together to create this design! *please note the T-shirt color is subject to change slightly, but the intent is to do red.

Did you see The Matches' bassist & artist Justin San Souci paint LIVE with us on Kickstarter? Well, he painted this amazing crow, and it's a limited one-time only reward. Snatch up this piece while you can!

Risks and challenges

As we've learned over the course of production on this documentary: THINGS CHANGE ALL THE TIME. Documentary film is literally capturing life stories, and sometimes there are developments we can't ignore.

The biggest challenge we face right now is piecing together this film. The challenge being that there are so many different ways we could shape this story: it could be that post production takes us a lot longer than intended, or we decide to go in a direction we didn't plan for.

They say there are three different films when you decide to make a movie: the one you plan for, the one you shoot, and then the one you edit. Well, this is where we go into movie number three, and things could change or go according to plan--we have no way of knowing until we actually get an editor into the project.

But we DO know, that with the support of Kickstarter, and the partnership between Chelsea and a talented editor, we are confident we will finish this film in our projected timeline and make it the best it can possibly be.

    LIMITED: "You Belong" Patch

    LIMITED: For International Women's Day, we wanted to create a special item that celebrated how proud we are to have a woman directing this film, and express how important it is to support women in film and music!

    And so the "You Belong" patch was born. These two words are an iconic representation of The Matches and their fanbase, and it's also a message we can get behind in the inclusive nature of music, film & art.

    So, today only, get this exclusive patch to truly say:

    "You Belong".

    Plus, you get all the digital downloads, including the film.

    Plus, get a mention on the film's website as a "GOLD RECORD" backer of the film.
