12 hours to go!!!!! Dare I say it, but -- we are so close to $30,000 -- wouldn't it be the coolest thing ever if we could break the $30,000 mark??? I'm daring to dream!
And to whet everyone's appetite for the sci-fi harp music videos to come, I have a new trailer for the follow-up video to "Giant Mushrooms" -- Here is an expanded sneak preview of "Lookout, Science" for you, here on our final day! "Lookout, Science" is Video #2 (the follow-up to "Giant Mushrooms"). The real thing should be out within the next few weeks, and in the meantime, here's a little taste!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IJ4qkEGliA
And now, please join me for a final 12 hours of word-spreading and sci-fi-harp recruiting!! Take your protein pills and put your helmet on --
Commencing countdown, engines on!!!!!!!!

Yippeee!!! I'm so happy to report that we are now over 100% funded -- this Sci-fi Music Video Album is happening!!! And now, with our 4 remaining days, there is still time, brother, to increase our video budget and add some serious production values to the project! The more of a budget we have, the better the sci-fi music videos will be! And the better the CD will be, from mastering on down to the graphics for the CD, DVD, and Vinyl as well! If we keep on going, we could even afford to have enough pages on the album graphics to include printed lyrics to each of the songs!! I'd just love to be able to do that, especially since the lyrics all tell little sci-fi short stories!
I also have a new reward, which will go out to each and every backer on the video album -- I will record a harp arrangement & live video of a cover song, to be decided by your votes, and release it exclusively to every one of my Kickstarter backers. And I will also include it as an extra on the "Girl Inventor" DVD. Which cover song will it be, I hear you ask? Cast your vote on my Facebook fan page:
Onward and upward! xoxo
I've always loved singing and writing songs (my whole life) and playing the harp (since I was 8), and I've also always loved science fiction, from reading short stories in old sci-fi mags to watching Star Trek & The Twilight Zone. So I finally put my greatest loves together and began writing pop tunes on the harp with science fiction lyrics! This past summer I took out another credit card and made my first official music video, for my song "Giant Mushrooms," and it illustrated & added to the story of the song in such a cool way, it gave me the idea to make an entire video album - with videos that told little tales of the unexpected...
So the more we raise, the better we can make the videos: cool locations, special effects, top-notch editing, neat actors, costumes, props.... We're basically making a 45-minute film -- a video book of 10 sci-fi short stories set to pop music. And it'll be a regular music album, too! I'm so excited that Kickstarter is giving this sci-fi video album a chance to be reality (and not just science fiction ;-)
And if we raise even more money, we could even hire a publicist to help get the video album out there and get some radio airplay! I'm not signed to any label, and I don't have any other backers, so Kickstarter is a dream come true for me, a window of possibility.
REWARDS: if you have any questions, please feel free to message me; I'm happy to give you more details. And if you want to combine one of the Limited Rewards with another level, that's cool as well, just let me know. And if you have any ideas for a reward you don't see but that you want, lay it on me!
Oh! and here's the YouTube link for the "Giant Mushrooms" video if you want to get the full idea of what we're up to -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ml-gr5QiLQ
