UPDATE 2/14Hello supporters and followers of House is a Feeling!
This is a quick note to let you know we have decided to SIMPLIFY our project.
To do this, we need to cancel the current project, restructure the budget, pledges, and rewards.
We will keep the main part of the project in tact - the music video.
Our Goal is to _DO_ the project while including as many of the people in our immediate network(s) as possible. Making the project less complicated with a more obvious pledge/reward structure will benefit all who support it. The purpose of the video will not change - we want to create a viral video for the love of house music.
As a reminder, if you already pledged on House is a Feeling, your pledge is canceled and we will notify you when the new campaign begins.
If you have any questions please feel free to comment here OR email me directly at bcabalic at gmail dot com.
Q: What is House is a Feeling? - House is a Feeling is a powerful saying in house music culture. It’s significant because as lovers of house music - We agree there are moments when we hear our favorite style of house, and the music completely takes over! This music video project is called House is a Feeling because it represents why we love house music - The universal ability to affect us in ways we cannot describe, only feel.
Our team will produce a house music video using YOUR video/photo submissions along with creative transitions and videography. Here's a chance to represent yourself!
Q. Who can support House is a Feeling? - Anyone can support this project! Fans, DJs, producers, promoters, record labels... Get down to the style of house music that you love the most, and we will show the world!
Q. You mean if I pledge a certain amount, you’ll put my photo/video in the final video? - YES! Your reward for supporting is a photo or video submission. Express how house music makes you feel through facial or body expression, motion or emotion. House is a Feeling will be an orchestrated compilation of photo/video submissions by the House Music Community. You may listen to ANY style of house to record your feeling. Listen to the style you love most, let it take control, and show the world how house music moves YOU. We can only allow a limited amount of photo/video submissions. If funded, we will provide you with submission guidelines for the final project. HINT Make your pledge before we run out of available video slots!
Q. Why are we doing this project? - The way we create, record and produce music is constantly evolving. There are no exceptions to how technology shapes the sound of House Music. The spectrum of house is continually pushed left and right by today’s creative artists – so much that sub-genres have room to become their own genre, and have. This creates a divide within our culture. We want to prove that despite these walls the essence of house music is within us all.
We are committed to uniting house heads despite the different flavors of house and geographical boundaries. Our final product will be a reflection of those who are passionate about the music they love. We foster creativity and innovation using Kickstarter.com
Q. What will we do with the funds raised? - We have a talented team ready for audio/video production and editing. Funds raised for this project will go towards the creative and technical process of making this music video a memorable one.
Q. Who is doing the Audio? The audio will be an original production by Roger Moorehouse and Brian Cabalic with Michelle Sanz on vocals. We will be announcing the remixers for the EP before the campaign ends. Exciting!!
