A music video celebrating Missouri Tiger football, our inaugural season in the SEC & the experience of a game day in Columbia, Missouri

The Project: Southern Choice Music Video

Have you ever wanted to help make a music video?  For that matter, have you ever wanted to be in a music video? Tiger fans, now is your chance!

A few years ago, an advertising slogan for the University of Missouri announced, “it’s a great time to be a Tiger”. Never have those words been more true. The University of Missouri has entered into the premier athletic conference in the nation, the SEC, and a passionate Tiger fan base is roaring with enthusiasm. To commemorate the occasion, Nashville artist and Vegas entertainer Adam D. Tucker has recorded Southern Choice, a song that marks this important moment in Tiger history.

Tiger fans, we need your help! Our project will record a music video to accompany the newly released song, Southern Choice. We have the right musician for the job. We have the right production company to do the work. We have a university worth promoting and a moment worth celebrating. But we need your help to make it happen. Our creative team includes lifelong Tiger fans who are just regular guys wanting to acknowledge both a proud tradition and a very promising future. If you and your fellow tailgating Tigers give us the kick start we need, we can have this video produced in time for the Missouri-Georgia game (September 8th). The video will be professional grade motion media, similar to other work done by Chimaeric, our production partner.

From initial idea to final product, this project requires the team effort of a lot of people. Will you join our team, throw us a downfield block with your contribution and help us reach the end zone of this creative project?  You can help us capture this moment in time by supporting the project and telling other Tiger fans about the opportunity.

David is a lifelong mid-Missourian, born and bred a Tiger fan to parents who graduated from the university in 1973.  David has done previous work for the University of Missouri, including most recently, a commercial about Mizzou joining the SEC.  The project will make use of the best equipment available and a talented cast of crew members to showcase former Tiger greats, memorable Tiger moments, fan footage and some of the favorite places in Columbia, Missouri on a Tiger game day. 

To make this community art project work, we need help from Tiger fans all around the country. Production value is going to make or break this video. If we raise the cash, the video will get produced at a very high level. If we don't raise the money we won't do the project out of respect for the Mizzou brand. Making something we're not proud of is not an option.  The more we raise, the better our product will be. 

Think of all the things you love as a Tiger football fan: the spirited atmosphere in Columbia, the game day pageantry, Tiger walk, Truman the Tiger, Marching Mizzou, The Missouri Waltz, the tailgate parties, the cheer squads, and of course, the game itself.  Together we can tell that story and capture this incredible moment in Tiger history.  We can make a video that showcases the "home" of a Missouri Tiger homecoming. 

Please consider leaving your paw print on this significant moment in Tiger history by helping us make this music video.  A  little bit from a lot of folks can go a long way.  $100 is equivalent to one yard and we need to move the length of a football field by raising a minimum of $10,000 for Chimaeric to work their magic. If you know of a Tiger fan who would consider this project, tell them about it. Give us a shout out on Facebook or Twitter. Talk it up at the water cooler. The football season is upon us.  Let's kick it off right with a new song, a stunning video and a game week concert!

Thank you Mizzou fans and let's go Tigers!

[The music video is scheduled to premiere on Wednesday, September 5th at The Blue Note in Columbia.  Start your SEC rally early by joining us for Adam D Tucker's Tim McGraw Tribute Show.  It will be Las Vegas quality entertainment with a Missouri Tiger twist!
