About this project

My goal is to produce imaginative and eccentric pieces to parallel and visually represent my favorite music and sound. Inspired by the unpublished music of Brian Kantorski, LIFTED's mission is simple: unique aesthetic and edge-of-your-seat suspense.

More About LIFTED:

Synopsis: A woman awakes in a strange environment. Realizing she is on an extra-terrestrial ship, she doesn't panic, she plots revenge.

LIFTED is a sci-fi flavored music video intended to do nothing more than entertain. Imagine fusing the thrill of 'Alien' and the camp of 'Hobo with a Shotgun.

Where you come in:

I am asking for $2,000 to cover production expenses. This will help pay for all of the gear, props, costumes, and set. Ideally, I'd like to get $5,000 so I can pay my cast and crew, but I don't receive any money unless the project is 100% funded. Remember, it takes money to not only make the piece, but also to make the rewards for you guys. $2,000 will cover the basics. If you have the money and interest, I'd recommend going with reward #4. If by chance the project is already funded and the campaign still has time, please remember that every little bit helps make the piece MORE AWESOME. Below is a graph to reference:

This video is designed to be screened at Festivals and uploaded online to places like YouTube and Vimeo so people can watch it for FREE. That's right, I don't expect to earn any money from this video, so I have turned to the Kickstarter community to fund this Kick-ass project. Projects like this couldn't be done without the generous donations of friends, family, and crowd-sourcing fans like yourself.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this post and I very much appreciate your donation to help turn my vision into reality.
