About this project
~YOU REALLY SHOULD WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE~
Last month The Graduate played 4 farewell shows around the midwest. We filmed and recorded the concerts in the hopes of making a live DVD, and now we need your help to make it happen!
Everyone who backs the project (even for $1) will receive occasional project updates via email. These will include progress reports, rare photos, videos & audio clips, etc. These are exclusive to backers, so go ahead and throw down a buck!
If you're not interested in becoming a backer, but still want to help the project succeed, please like our Kickstart on Facebook, make a tweet about it, or post if on your tumblr or blog. Seriously, these things make a big difference!
UPDATE - Sept. 18
Since things have been going so well on day 1, I'm adding a new kickback. I just came across a huge box of Best of Winter CDs (Me and Jared's first band) For $15 you can pick up one of these discs! We'll also drop a few of these bad boys into every kickback over the $15 mark while supplies last. Keep in mind you can change your donation, or add another at any time ;)
Introduction by Snake Wegs -
a 4 minute intro like no other
The Concert -
The entire show was shot in HD and professionally recorded at Reggie's in Chicago, IL. The set features a ton of songs from what ended up being one of our favorite gigs of all time.
approx. 10 minutes featuring the entire band discussing their career, going on hiatus, and what it's like preparing for a farewell concert.
Additional Content (budget willing) -
Every music video by The Graduate, tons of tour/studio videos, rare behind the scenes footage, interviews and concert footage.
- Mixing and mastering the audio
- Editing the video footage of the concert and other content into a nice little package
- Production costs including manufacturing, artwork, and pressing
The more money we raise, the better we can make this project!
If/when we reach our goal, we will begin production immediately. We're expecting this will take somewhere between 30-60 days, and we will ship DVDs to every backer the day after we get them in the mail from the manufacturer. Seriously. I'll take time off work and stay up all night writing everyone's address out all by myself if I have to...
Then the project fails, and unfortunately the live DVD may never see the light of day :(
We'll start with adding more content to the DVD, possibly making it 2-discs if need be. We'll up the quality of everything as much as we can, including more artwork, cooler DVD menus, hidden features, things like that. Everything pledged will be put back into the project to make it the best it can be!
If things get crazy, we might even be able to afford to press Horror Show on 7-inch vinyl like we've always dreamed!
