Hi, I’m Nick Goulden, the director of the recently shot film, Reality Mine, starring Rock’n’Rolla’s Michael Ryan, Jersey Boys’s Jye Frasca and Sean Browne.

Please help us complete our film! Prinicpal photogrpahy took place 19-21 July and we’re raising funds to complete the post-production to get our film finished to the highest standard and get it out to competition, distribution, and to you!

We’ve got a brilliant, award-winning team, so please take a quick look and, if you like the project, please help us!

REALITY MINE – WHAT IS IT?

Reality Mine is a psychological short drama exploring the modern reality in which unprecedented levels of knowledge grant unheard of power, open to abuse by governments – or anyone with the right know-how.

When family man Max Keller is implicated in alleged animal rights terrorism, arson and murder carried out by Dan, his brother, he must choose between loyalty to his brother and protecting his family – and himself. What would you do?

It focusses on the modern reality – much in news recently – of how governments and other organisations covertly trawl the internet for information, building up vast pools of data on millions of individuals.

One such term for this is ‘Reality Mining’:

“Reality mining is using the digital breadcrumbs we leave in everyday life to understand our behaviour. So, as you walk around with a cellphone, you leave position markers; you call people, you use your credit card… And we can collect those up to build a psychological profile of you…”– Professor Sandy Pentland, Director of the Human Dynamics Laboratory, MIT

With virtually unlimited access to data, it is now possible to build a profile of someone complete to the last detail. The result is that, without fully realising it, we have entered into a new reality whereby the government can know everything there is to know about us.

Who is to stop them abusing that power?

We feel this is a vitally important issue that is ill-understood in the popular conscience. We need your help to make this film, and spread the word.

Why Should You Help?

Reality Mine focusses on important issues that affect us all and that need exploring. With your help, it’s also going to be a cracking film that gets seen.

The more resources we have, the more we can spread the word to get it, and the issues it represents, seen by as many people as possible.

Where Does Your Funding Go?

In order to make this as good a project as it deserves to be, we need £10,000. We already have nearly £5,000 in place and so we are asking you to help us with the remaining £5000.

We have already completed principal photography, filming from 19-21 July, in London and in Berkshire, England.

Here’s the basic budget:

  • £2000 – Camera & Lighting
  • £500 – Travel & Vehicle Hire
  • £750 – Catering
  • £300 – Props & Set Design
  • £150 – Costume
  • £100 – Make-Up, Hair & Prosthetics

  • £650 – Online Edit & Versioning
  • £250 – DVD’s, honouring perk commitments
  • £700 – Festivals & Marketing
  • TOTAL: £10,000

If we can raise more, we’ll be able to put more into the film!

And What Do You Get For Helping?

We are truly humbled that you are even considering supporting this film and will pay you back as best we can. Please take a look opposite at the possible perks – from signed photos of our cast tosigned scripts, from a thank you in the credits to a full executive producer credit, the list goes on.

Help Omaha Symphonic Winds commission Keith Michael Davis to compose a new work for band based on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Among the goals of Omaha Symphonic Winds is the commissioning of new pieces to add to the concert band repertoire. OSW performed two premieres in 2012, and will present 2 world premieres this October.

Recently, OSW commissioned Nebraska-based composer Keith Michael Davis to write a new work for us. Keith studied French horn and composition at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He is an accomplished composer, and has received 9 previous commissions for band compositions from public schools, the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and the Nebraska Wind Symphony.

I was particularly taken with Keith’s Aubade for solo oboe and wind ensemble. He successfully captured the French Impressionist style of composition for this haunting piece. In discussing a new major length piece for OSW and my admiration of Aubade, Keith sought a subject that would lend itself to impressionism.

Keith chose Jules Verne’s novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea as the subject of his piece called Nautilus. The scenes include: I. Prologue: Submarine Menace, II. Mobilis in Mobile, III. The Sunken Continent, IV. Squid Attack, V. Coral Reef Burial, VI. Into the Maelstrom, VII. Epilogue: The Mysterious End of Nemo. Keith has already written about 5 minutes of the planned 12 minute work. The world premiere of Nautilus will be given in May 2014 in Omaha, Nebraska.

Keith’s fee for composing “Nautilus” is $3,000. This is a large expense for a young ensemble such as OSW, so we invite you to join with us to help bring this piece to life. Please select one of the reward packages listed on the right, and pledge your donation to this worthy project.

Thanks for promoting the creation of new musc!

Go Ahead and Sang The Blues Kickstarter

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1801442760/go-ahead-and-sang-the-blues-brick-fields-album-201

“Go Ahead And Sang The Blues!” This says it all!

“Go Ahead And Sang The Blues” is going to be a solid blues album which will include some down home, old school style blues and feature some of Arkansas’ favorite blues musicians. Our rythmn section will include international blues bassist John Davies and drummer Johnny Arredondo, We have approached international blues harmonica player RJ Mischo and blues guitarist Earl Cates to lay down a few tracks as well. We will have other guests on this album too and are excited to be working with blues promoter Charles Ragsdell who will also be producing the album. “Go Ahead And Sang The Blues” will include at least 9 new original songs as well as our versions of an old Lightening Hopkins tune, an old Sister Rosetta Tharpe tune and a song written by Chicago blues singer Karen Carroll. How many songs we track will depend on our budget. We are excited about this CD because the original tunes are close to the heart and have been getting a tremendous response at the live shows. There will be no holding back on the emotion that these songs need in the vocals or musicianship.

Making an album is very expensive and can be very difficult for independent artists to accomplish without some sort of support. The most common support would be to borrow the funds, find an investor, or sign with a label to support the cost. We wanted to keep out the middle men and include our listeners so we thought, why not involve our listeners in helping toward making this album possible rather than going through an investor or label. This keeps it personable and independent. Independent artists are like small cooperation’s all over the globe and we must come up with creative ways to support our cooperation’s. The listeners are the ones who make it possible for us to do what we do and are the ones who support our small cooperation’s, so they should be put first and involved in this process. In return we thank them personally and strive to continue to put out good medicine.

We have already had $2000 donated to this project. We estimate that it will take around $7000 to complete it in the manner we hope to. If we are to raise more than our goal then that will allow us to order more bulk CD’s and invest in more dynamic promotions. We are able to record this album at such a low rate because of the kindness and generosity of those involved.

The Squatch Watchers Kickstarter!

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/827962922/squatch-watchers

A comedic web series about the hunt for Bigfoot. Guest starring Chuck Testa and Superman writer Scott Lobdell.

What is Squatch Watchers?

Squatch Watchers is a web series about a team of Bigfoot believers that are searching for the mysterious and elusive beast.

So, wait? Is this fictional?

No! The Squatch Watchers are comprised of real people and the series will document our search for Bigfoot. The first season will comprise of five episodes with a running time of around ten minutes each. Each episode begins with the team arriving in a new area of California and extensively searching it for any sign of Sasquatch. Local residents will be interviewed; scientists will be consulted to ensure the validity of this search. No rock will be left undisturbed until we declare an area is free of any Bigfoot.

Why are you looking for Bigfoot? Aren’t there TV Shows that do that?

We’re all big believers in Bigfoot. Sadly, television is doing a poor job of actually performing a real search. Most “monster” shows will show up in an area, and then leave that area without finding anything or even making any determination at all! WE WILL NEVER DO THAT.

We’re not a television show that wants to keep the mystery going. We want to solve it. Now, this doesn’t mean that the show will be boring. No sir! We are internet comedians after all. Each episode will be the perfect 50/50 mixture of comedy and actual Bigfoot hunting.

Who the heck are you guys?

We already told you. We’re the Squatch Watchers!

Be more specific!

The Squatch Watchers are made up of Gene Shaw, Jerry Ahern, Jason Inman and Jen Trani.

Jason and Gene will be co-directing the series. Each has years of experience in film, internet and commercial production.

Jason currently produces, shoots and edits for Youtube comedy duo, Rhett & Link. He also creates videos on his own YouTube channel (Jawiin) which has over 2.5 million views collectively.

Gene is no slouch either. He has over a decade of experience in graphic design and illustration. His other credits include several AAA video games, best selling iPhone/iPad and Android apps and feature film editing and visual effects.

Jason and Gene are also no strangers to shooting in the woods. Check out The Walking Dead Christmas Special, a video they co-created that won Best Parody Video at the 2013 Geeky Awards.

Jason and Gene will also be helped out by the following:

Scott Lobdell – A world famous comic book writer who has written acclaimed runs onSuperman, X-Men, and Teen Titans. He has fallen in love with Bigfoot ever since writing about the creature in the pages of Alpha Flight.

Chuck Testa – The internet’s most famous taxidermist and Bigfoot believer. Chuck was named by Time Magazine one of 2011’s top internet memes. Most well known for telling people, “NOPE!”

Jen Trani – Brilliant musician and internet famous guitarist who has released multiple albums and played in such bands as Jen & Abby and Malin Akerman and the Mystikats. She wants to use music to aid in the search for Bigfoot.

Jerry Ahern – A comic book and Sasquatch lover who brings an enthusiastic and energetic drive to the search. Also the former host of the Cape Town Community Podcast.

Why do you need me?

The search for Bigfoot is actually a lot more difficult than it sounds. It’s not as simple as hopping in your car and beating on some trees, as some shows would have you believe.

In fact, a large portion of the budget is strictly for traveling expenses. We want to make sure that we can get to the areas that have the most reported sightings of our big hairy friend. For the first season, the search will be limited to the state of California. But for Season 2, we want to expand to some of the northern states like Oregon and Washington.

Wait, you’re already talking about Season 2?

Of course! Our quest to find the Squatch only ends when we find him. First, we document California squatches, then we broaden the search to find out where else this elusive beast is camping out.

We’ve put together the numbers and the budget we need is exactly the amount we are asking for. No more, no less. There are no line items for trips to Hawaii in this budget. That’s Season 4.

So humbly and on bended knee, we turn to you to help us fund our search for Bigfoot.

So what do I get for contributing?

Limited time reward! Recieve an Kickstarter exclusive Squatch Watcher Bigfoot Photo Evidence Scale!

Crossing The Arctic Circle: Sharing a photo journey with other daydreamers

Three weeks ago I resigned from my job to follow my passion for photography. This is my first project and with your help I hope to share it with others!

 

 

 

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/crossing-the-arctic-circle-sharing-a-photo-journey-with-other-daydreamers/x/4210124

About the Crossing The Arctic Circle (and me) :

I am Thomas Moon – a professional landscape photographer, avid explorer, and newly “ex-corporate” wilderness lover. After over a year of planning and overcoming a bit of fear, I took the leap last week to follow a new path and pursue my passion for landscape photography. Since this passion took hold in 2008, I have traveled over 200,000 miles exploring distant places around North America. Photographing nature and being in the wild has always excited me and I love sharing distant places with others. I am working hard to transition my career into photography with this first project and together we will be helping wilderness conservation groups with a portion of the proceeds from the project. I have saved up some money to get me started, but I can’t do this without your help.

Last week, the chains from my cubicle wall were officially unshackled and I have been working feverishly since to start this project! I would LOVE for you to come along on this journey with me so that I can share the experience with as many people as possible and help protect the environment for other nature lovers. Five percent of all proceeds will go to the Alaska Conservation Foundation (alaskaconservation.org) and Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (cpaws.org) to help support efforts to protect the wilderness there for future generations.

In return for your contribution, I will be sharing blog updates and digital galleries along the way, as well as other unique photo perks below. Your support will make this project a reality!

For Updates on Crossing the Arctic Circle, including a photo journal, please visit my other page at

https://tom-moon.squarespace.com/

  • Digital Gallery: samples

  • 16×20 Wood Panel w/ High Gloss Finish

Come Along For The Adventure!

Crossing the Arctic Circle is a 45 day photo project about exploring the vast stretches of untouched wilderness in Alaska and Northwestern Canada and sharing the experience with photo enthusiasts, wanderers and daydreamers at heart. I will be shooting with a Canon Rebel and a GigapanPro to take panoramic shots. This adventure will encompass pictures from British Columbia, Yukon, and Northwest Territories in Canada, all the way above the Arctic Circle to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska on the Beaufort Sea.

This project is the first part of a series that will also encompass many of the National Parks in Canada including Banff, Gros Morne (Newfoundland) and the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec later this summer/fall.

  • This journey is extremely important to me because it represents a gigantic shift in my life – from working in Corporate America and leaving a steady pay check, to following my passion for landscape photography and sharing it with people like you. The project coincides with my 30th birthday, a self-imposed deadline I gave myself to take this leap.
  • My goal is to visit some of the more remote parks in Alaska – by way of car, plane, ferry, and on foot. I will be traveling through Wrangell-Elias National Park, Denali National Park, Gates of the Arctic National Park, Kenai Fjords, and Kluane National Park (Canada), at a minimum. Photos from all locations will be shared in an online blog during and after the trip, as well as separate online galleries of landscape and panoramic images. Perks for larger contributions will include 8×10 and 16×20 prints on stained/sanded wood panels.
  • Between Fairbanks, AK north to Prudhoe Bay, I will be traveling on the Dalton Highway which is among the most desolate and northern most roads in the world. The road meanders about 500 miles through the Arctic Circle. The journey to Gates of the Arctic National Park will involve a 10 plus mile hike into the park from this highway.
  • The trek to Wrangell Elias National Park will share scenes from the area that has one of the largest collections of 14,000 ft. peaks in North America. If this projected is fully funded, I will also be sharing photos from Katmai and Lake Clark National Parks which will involve flying above and landing somewhere in both parks.

Note: I have already completed one portion of the project in early July, traveling up the Dempster Highway in Yukon and Northwest Territories to Canada’s northernmost city, Inuvik. This was an epic journey and the most beautiful place I have been to date. (Pictures directly below)

What We Need & What You Get

The total budget for this project including incurred costs to date and money from my savings = $7,050

  • $80 US National Park Pass and $70 Canadian National Park Pass
  • $1500 from my own budget to defray some of the photo making costs
  • $500 supplies to prep for production include the following:

Plywood, canvas, stain for wood panels, resin for finish, blowtorch for removing bubbles from resin, paint brushes, industrial powered saw to cut wood to size.

Projected Expenses:

  • Gas costs for 12,000 + miles of driving = $2,000 or more
  • Airplane and ferry costs once in Alaska = $1,200 or more

This is a low end estimate. Average costs for a 90-180 min flightseeing tour are between $400 and $800 per person and $200-300 for ferry travel per person. This expense will include flightseeing tours and stops in Katmai, Lake Clark, and summit to Mt. McKinley in Denali National Park – places that cannot be reached by car.

  • 3% Credit Card fee = $200
  • Contribution to Environment Groups = $250 or more
  • 4-9% Indiegogo Fee = $270-600 ($450 avg)
  • Shipping Costs to mail photo books, wood panels, canvas prints = $300 or more (low end)

This is a low end estimate. Books can be shipped media mail, but wood panels costs about 300% more to ship.

  • Professional carpentry work spent creating perks = $500

This includes time spent sanding, cutting, and staining wood for panels as well as mounting photos to the panels. I will be hiring someone to do this work as I work on the photo editing, panoramic creation, and photo book creation.

If I don’t reach the goal amount of $7050, the funds will go to a more limited project throughout Alaska and would likely forgo some of the most remote photography locations such as the Aleutian Islands, Lake Clark and Katmai National Parks. An incredible photo book would still be made along will all other perks and I would instead create the perks primarily on the journey into Gates of the Arctic National Park, Denali National Park, and Wrangell-Elias National Park, all of which can be done with a lesser budget.

Thank you for your support! See you on the road.

-Tom

Help Kickstart Abrial’s Debut Album, “Take Shelter”

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1840386896/abrials-debut-album-take-shelter

An indie-roots record about looking everywhere for the person closest to you.

If you’re like me, the first thing you want to know is “where are the songs?” Take a listen on my Facebook or Soundcloud page.

Here’s the backstory: about six or seven years ago, my brother and I were wandering around the country, bumming it, thumbing it and generally up to no good, when we stumbled on some lovely folks who followed the Vedic scriptures and liked to sing the names of God. We were raised with lots of music and singing in our life, and joining in felt natural. It turns out those names have a certain attractive quality about them, and pretty soon we were singing them all the time.

I couldn’t relate to what was playing on the radio. I was hungry for songs that spoke to my experience – searching for God, looking everywhere, getting lost and then finding Him sitting patiently next to me the whole time. I remembered the songs I grew up with – hymns, traditionals, porch songs, farmers songs, common sense songs, real life songs. I remembered their easy reverence, their keening hope and I kept waiting for someone to write more songs like that. Then, words started popping up in my head, then tunes, then chord progressions and it occurred to me finally that maybe I should stop waiting and start writing. The song I chose for the video is the first one I ever wrote. You can hear the whole thing here:

“Everybody Knows” from Take Shelter

These songs have been percolating for over five years now and I’m fairly bursting to get them out of my head and into yours. There’s a lot more where they came from, some fully formed, others in various stages of disarray, and I’m looking forward to freeing up some creative energy to focus on new work. I was never sure what avenue these songs would take to a wider audience, but I always knew that writing and singing them was at least a reminder to me of what’s important, and what I want to hold onto. They have helped me through a lot of tough times, and I hope they can help you too.

Last winter, a couple of favorable circumstances converged and I decided to finally bite the bullet and commit some of my songs to tape. I landed in Austin, Texas first and enlisted friends (old and newly met) to experiment with some of my songs that needed a bigger sound behind them. We holed up at an awesome little studio called Big Orange for five days, and pulled off some pretty cool stuff. You can listen to one of the Austin songs below and download three of the best as part of the rewards:

“Trouble” from the Austin Sessions

With limited time and money, though, I decided to focus on recording a consistent album of songs that stood on their own, with (mostly) just me and an acoustic guitar. I was blessed to know Kristina Stykos, who records out of Pepperbox Studios at her home in Vermont, and she very graciously poured herself into the task at hand. We found our sensibilities were well in tune with each other, and the process was natural, fun and exhilarating.

with my brother Josh on the hand ocharinawith my brother Josh on the hand ocharina

Cost-wise, I was able to fund most of the recording and mixing out of pocket, but I ran out of money towards the end and there are more costs associated with getting the CD ready to ship. It needs to be mastered (the final fine tuning that ensures consistency across songs and makes it radio-ready), and I need to complete the graphics, layout and printing for the lyrics booklet and CD. I’m planning to choose simple, plastic-free packaging, but I would like it to be well-designed and executed.

If you’re not familiar with Kickstarter, take a look to your right. There are options to pledge different amounts in exchange for a copy of the CD when it’s finished, and other awesome rewards. If I don’t make the total amount I need to finish the CD, then nothing will be charged to you. But with dedicated fans like you, who read all the way to the bottom of the page, I’m confident I can make it and you will be receiving a download link or a CD in your inbox or mailbox soon!

Thank you for your support! I couldn’t do it without you.

A Kickstarter Film Documentary about Autism in Las Vegas

Documentary to help autism via the arts and tech in Nevada.

by David Berkowitz

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1456183616/documentary-about-autism-in-las-vegas-and-music-th

Our goal is to make a documentary about autistic people in Las Vegas, what is being done the programs, people & results, real life.

In April 2012, the Centers for Disease Control announced that 1 in 80 children are diagnosed with autism. This has drawn global attention with over 71 percent of Americans expressing interest in learning more about autism alone. We aim to capture how real autistic people in Las Vegas, NV are dealing with the realty of autism. Personally I have a vested interest in bringing attention to autism. I am a high functioning father of 3 autistic kids and I would like to tell my story of our lives with autism as well as others in Las Vegas and their experiences with autism. In addition we will illustrate what is being done to help autism in Nevada as well especially in programs targeted to music, the arts, dance, music therapy and theater related programs .This film is targeted towards those families impacted by autism. As mentioned earlier I truly have a vested interest in helping bring exposure to autism, autism awareness and the autism programs in Nevada.

I met Temple Grandin a couple of times and she says that arts saved her life. I was in band for 7 years myself and it certainly helped me.

In regards to the documentary it consists of:

1) A overview on some of the autism for profit and nonprofit in the Las Vegas especially the ones that are focused around the arts, music, technology and music therapy as well as respite programs. It will detail what is being done now as what will be done in the next 12 months to improve the lives of people with autism.

2) Interviews with 10+ families that have been affected by autism and their stories especially ones that have experienced beneficial programs involving music and the arts and what can be done to improve them as well as what has been effective.

3) Information on my experience with autism and that of my family as well as my intentions as far as trying to help people with autism via tech, music and the arts. I will elaborate as to our initial plans and long term goals to help autistic people via technology, music and the arts and what it will take to make it happen and the impact on the local autism community as well.

We plan to do local interviews with autism programs that are involved with tech music and the arts. We will talk to families of people with autism, their friends, if we can we will talk to the people with autism as to their thoughts and opinions of the benefits that the arts, autism programs and music have added to their lives and quality of life.

This film explores and will show how art, music and technology can help individuals with autism communicate and express themselves. We will also illustrate the benefits that the families of the folks with autism have as a form of respite and culture too.

We need your help to illustrate how the arts, music and tech have and can improve the lives of those with autism as well as their families.

The following is what we need help with:

We want to get our message out there to as many people as possible. Our intent is to submit the film produce a finished DVD for sale, on the web and maybe a film festival as well.

In order to do the film we need:

-Equipment to film the movie

-Equipment or outside services to edit the film

-Help to review, and make changes to improve the film

-Audio Editing and subtitling

– Final Color Correction

– Audio Mixing

– DVD Replication and Packaging

– Digital Cinematic Package production to screen in cinemas and festivals

– Festival submission costs

We’re asking for the minimum it will cost to get all this done, but every dollar we receive will help us accomplish our goal and distribute the film.

Please,

– Give what you can

– Tell everyone you know

– Help us spread the word

Thank you and we hope you love the film as much as we do.
