About this project

It's been a dream of Savannah's and mine to create a project - a magnum opus, our chef d'œuvre - since the height of our career in '99. We have three really good ideas of what this masterpiece will look like but it's gonna take money to make it a reality. And we want to run an IndieGogo campaign to get the money, but turns out you need money to run a crowd funder too. 

Lots has changed since we rose to regional fame with our hit single "Two Hearts, One House" - radio is in a tailspin, Mp3s are all the rage and few people sent us forwarding addresses to update our once impressive mailing list. Then I heard about this crowd-funding fan-sourced way of making music and well, to be honest, I was lost. But I did my research and it turns out that these things occasionally work. And one thing I learned via all my research is that you need to treat a fan funding campaign like a small business. Well, just so happens I know a thing or two about that from running our band all through the Nineties before Mammoth Records took over everything we owned and sucked us dry. But I often digress. Point is, if we want to fund our magnum opus we need the money to run a great IndieGoGo campaign and that's why we're asking for just $325 to do it. 

The $325 breaks down like this:

Blog posts from people who have run successful (and not so successful) IndieGoGos say a good, eye-catching video is key to meeting your monetary goal. Well hallelujah! Savannah and I are masters of visual art as well as the auditory. All we need for this is some equipment (camera, tripod, a mood light - we already got the mics!!!) $100 We need to hire someone to shoot this thing, but fortunately we live in Reseda within a stones throw of about 200 wanna-be directors and cut-rate Tarantino disciples. $50

I'm going to dedicated 8 hard working hours to managing the IndieGogo. I make $14.15 p/hr at Guitar Center so that's $88 after taxes (Yep 88, Cali taxes are steep hombre). 

In my research on fan funding I also learned that ya have to pay to promote things to your loyal base on Facebook. So we're going to dedicate $87 to that Cartesian Circle to get the word out via social media.

$325. Not much. We've given a lot of music and memories to you, you've given back your adoration. Now we want to give you something really special, so help us do a rock-solid IndieGogo to make it happen!

Risks and challenges

We hope to avoid any problems. It seems like a fairly simple approach to running an Indiegogo. Possibly might be a little trouble making the video but other than that, limited risks.
