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 Inspired by the unpublished music of Brian Kantorski, LIFTED's mission is simple: unique aesthetic and edge-of-your-seat suspense.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.
