Not just any music video. We want to tell the story of how YOU, the fans, raised US back to life. And we can only tell it TOGETHER.

WAIT, YOU WANT ME IN THE STORY?

That's right! Here's how it works:

STEP 1 - PLEDGE TO OUR CAMPAIGN. 

1 dollar, 50 dollars, 1,000 dollars, whatever sounds good. Remember, the bigger the pledge, the more awesome the reward. 

STEP 2 - RECORD A 10-15 SECOND VIDEO... 

on your smart phone or computer answering this question: "Why do you support Devour the Day?” 

(Doesn’t need to be fancy, don’t need any lights, don’t need lots of makeup, just be yourself.)

STEP 3: EMAIL YOUR VID TO: 

myvid@devourtheday.com

Here's an example from our good friend Natalie:

At the end of the campaign, we’ll take all the videos you send in, and WE'LL ACTUALLY USE THEM IN OUR MUSIC VIDEO! 

In fact, we’ve already finalized the video concept, and it DOESN’T WORK WITHOUT YOUR VIDEOS. You’ll see what we mean when it comes out... 

SO WHO’S MAKING THE VIDEO? 

We are thrilled to be working with the talented team at Neighborhood Film Company, whose clients include Nike, Comcast, & the Philadelphia Eagles, to name a few. 

Here’s a recent vid they did for Nike: 

We’ve been brainstorming with them for several weeks now, and we already have a complete concept, storyline and shooting schedule. All we need is your support to give it the final green light! 

WHY A $40,000 VIDEO? WHERE WILL THE MONEY GO? 

Like we said, we don’t want to make just another industry music video. We want to tell this story WITH and FOR our fans in a way no one has ever seen before. And we want to make something that will stand on its own—a work of art that you'll want to keep coming back to over and over again. 

Building a world like that requires equipment, space, materials, permits, and much more. Most of all, it requires a team of talented creative people, and we want to pay them fairly for their work.

Here's the breakdown of estimated costs: 

  • Pre-Production: $3,250 
  • Crew: $5,000 
  • Locations: $5,350 
  • Props: $3,400 
  • Logistics: $2,400 
  • Travel & Transportation: $500 
  • Talent: $750 
  • Directing: 4,500 
  • Cameras & Lighting: $5,500 
  • Visual Effects: $4,500 
  • Editing: $4,000 
  • Color: $850 

For all the math wizzes out there, yes, that's exactly $40,000, and doesn't account for Kickstarter's 5% cut or credit card fees. We’re ready to put in our own money to cover those costs—but here’s the ultimate dream: With your help, we can spread the word and EXCEED our fundraising goal!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The team at Neighborhood Film Company are experienced filmmakers whose business thrives because they know how to produce a great product, meet deadlines, and shoot on a pre-determined budget. As we've said, we already have this shoot scheduled for December 2013, from pre-production thru post-production. In short, we're beyond confident that this video will be made if it's funded. But here's a guarantee to set your mind at ease: if we don't have a completed video released to the public by April 2014, we'll refund all contributions to this Kickstarter campaign, regardless of any costs we've already incurred.
