Our vision is to create a unique collaborative album featuring 15 local St. Augustine musicians, recorded during a week in October at Rodman plantation house in Palatka. Our dream is to film the process and create a live snapshot of the blue collar player. We intend to unfold the history of music in St. Augustine, past, present and future. We want to release the CD and documentary in a double disc appropriately titled 'Local Honey'.

In addition to working with 15 local songwriters we are going to be recording the album with local sound guru Bill Parker owner of Toes in the Sand Production. Bill has been working in this city and scene for more than three decades. When it comes to sound...he is the man!

We have a funding goal of $16,000 to make this project a success.

This is our budget:

Talent: $4,500 $300 dollars to each player to help with the loss of work while recording

House Rental: $2,000 Includes cost of cleaning crew

Production Cost: $2,100 1,000 discs in full color eco wallet (double disc) 50 to each musician

Documentary Cost: 1,300 $300 for the second camera man and $1000 for editing and directing

Recording cost: $3,000

Legal Fees: $1,000

Food: $2,100 $1,500 for food cost and $600 for cooking crew

Total cost: $16,000

The ultimate goal would be to make this project so successful we can send our documentary to film festivals and have our story and music reach as many people as possible.

If by some miracle we happen to pass our goal...

we would...

At $26,000 ($10,000 beyond our goal)

We would be able to cover the entry fee's to every independent film festival in the South East for the next year.

We would also be able to pay our musicians and sound men a larger stipend for the project!

At $50,000 ($34,000 beyond our budget)

We would be able to cover the entry fee's to every independent film festival in the South East for the next year.

We would also be able to pay our musicians and sound men a larger stipend for the project!

As well as doing a tour with all available musicians and private showings of the film.

At $100,000 ($84,000 beyond our budget)

llamas...mini llamas!

Thank you for taking the time to read about our project! This is going to be a once in a lifetime opportunity for players from all over our city, spanning generations and genres... coming together to create something unique and beautiful!

Risks and challenges

One of our biggest challenges has been the careful coordination of 15 players, the venue, the film crew and the recording crew. However, that being said the crew and talent on this project have been so inspiring and eager to make this a success! That's almost 20 individuals pulling together to make a quality album and full length movie. I believe firmly that our city will support and cheer on this project. I've already seen it in the last few months!

Another challenge we are prepared to face is the editing process. We want to take our time to tell the whole story (or at least as much as we can) Our release date is not set but as we finish editing and replication begins, we will make every effort to promote the final product!
