Thanks for checking out my campaign! We are trying to raise $3,500 to complete the production of a music video for my new song, "In Full Uniform."
Originally, I was asked to write the song for a tribute to veterans CD. Having never served in the military, I was hesitant. However, one night last winter, I was reading the action report that detailed how my uncle lost his life while serving in the army, long before I was born. While imagining what it must have been like to be so young, facing those kinds of experiences, I realized that people are still going through this today! The song seemed to write itself all at once.
This spring, I recorded "In Full Uniform" in Chicago with a very talented producer, Stephen Shirk. The recording turned out so great that we both agreed I should include it on my upcoming album as well. In one month, I was able to raise $9,000 in donations towards a video budget! This was all thanks to various organizations, small businesses, and people that will be named in the credits.
I've hired an award-winning production team to produce the video. I've already spent close to $11,000 to shoot the footage with Director Ian Connors and the guys at 8 Rivers Films. Now I just need to hit my Kickstarter goal, so we can cover the editing and post-production costs to get this video out there for you to see!
This music video will be a tribute to ANYONE that has ever served for their country. It is not a political song. It is simply a tribute to each individual. The goal is to release it on May 28, Memorial Day! So far, it will be released on the internet as well as local television in Alaska.
Your contribution will go a long way towards helping me make the best music video I've ever been part of! Check out the prize levels and become a Backer to help make this project a reality.
Thank you so much,
