Why Kickstarter? Because you can't shoot a video with Warcraft gold!
SONGHAMMER: The mighty and powerful overlords of rock need your help! After being chosen out of tens of thousands of awesome and creative entrants in the BlizzCon 2011 Original Songwriters Competition we realized that there was a serious need for some seriously EPIC music dedicated to the realms of fantasy, gaming, and classic amplitude. [For those of you with a life outside of online gaming, BlizzCon is an annual convention dedicated to the most popular online PVP/PVE games in the world; World of Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo. There are over 24,000,000 registered gamers worldwide]. Using their spoils from BlizzCon SONGHAMMER turned around and invested it all right back into new recordings. Fueled by gaming, sorcery, and ramen these masters of melodic mayhem created some truly epic tunage... But alas, they had no more coin to produce a truly epic video.
This is where YOU come in! SONGHAMMER needs your help to create a video for their newest single, Death Is On The Way. This video will encompass classic filmmaking with a flair for the theatrical. Think 'The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,' meets 'The Lord of The Rings.' Oh ya, you know what we're talkin' about. Awesome Epic Story! Awesome Epic Battles! Awesome Epic Music!!!
Treasures From SONGHAMMER'S Forge:
We have labored long and hard on the SONGHAMMER forge to create cool and unique thank you gifts for your pledges to this epic video. The prizes vary from unreleased digital downloads, to actually appearing in the video itself!
The sky's the limit, but we can’t receive any of your pledged support until this Kickstarter is 100% funded. That means we need you to spread the word. Tell your friends and family, your online community, your social networks, and everyone on that global worldwide intra-web thingy. And what if this Kickstarter campaign over-funds? We'll use that extra money to make the video even more EPIC, finish out the SONGHAMMER album, and kick down some awesome bonus pledge gifts for everyone! Only you can make this happen! We thank you in advance for your help in making this epic music come to life in an epic video...
With tender regards from your face-melting overlords
Risks and challenges
Orcs! Orcs may just be the biggest challenge for The Mighty SONGHAMMER... well, orcs and barbarians... and maybe dragons. But orcs, barbarians, and dragons aside we have a few technical hurtles to overcome. SONGHAMMER is ready to hit the road and tour this project from here to Orgrimmar, but we need funds and shows. The project has already proven that it can generate press and attention, craft award winning music, and create compelling and entertaining media. What we need now is access to genre specific venues: Gaining audience with conventions and events such as ComicCon, DragonCon, and the like. That is our next challenge, and with hard work, face-melting rock shows, and a little help from friends like you, SONGHAMMER will emerge victorious!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
