Risks and challenges
Why am I doing a Kickstarter...?
I look around at all my talented and dedicated friends and recognize how we have supported each others strides and struggles. Creating beautiful art(s) with little to no budget. Coming to the realization that its time to take the solitary next step into my future and hope for the best.
My obstacles are not so different than any struggling artists' I'm struck with the daily reality that there are bills to pay, day to day living expenses, rent, job, finding time, space and funds to create and my commitments to my loved ones, friends and family.
Intent...WITH YOUR HELP...Become bigger, better, brighter!.
Having the right tools to refine and master the productions. I'll need to install and learn various software, starting with Logic & Protools.
Building the physical studio has been an ongoing process. There is no space secured and I'm not economically in a position to look for a space to rent. So for now the studio is in constant re-work, building upward and outward until it can find a permanent home. I get my materials wherever I can. I gather free wood from the alley behind my house, and the scrap bin at Home Depot will occasionally have redwood and some cool metal sheets.
I've been able to borrow and trade instruments thus far so I can keep moving forward. But in order for me to perform live the essential gear will be needed.
Spend my days working and picking up any odd cash paid jobs so I can sustain every day living.
Spend my nights writing, practicing, planning and building and try and get at least 3 hours of sleep every night so I don't lose my mind.
Eliminate any bad habits or negativity that could potentially distract me or take me away from my objective.
Surround myself with supportive, ambitious and inspiring people who care enough about the vision and are willing to help in any way, even if its just an encouraging word.
