Moving Ahead with The Film
So the David Shriver Tribute project fund-raiser fell short of reaching it’s financial goal in round 1, but I am here to tell you that we now have substance and the film and audio tracks are full ahead under way! Film is not only in production but thanks to Mickey Jones, the owners of all the Ed Sullivan Shows have given me full permission to use a clip of David playing in front of 20 million people on Live Television! This means we can integrate the clip into our own film. In film-makers terms that’s a huge perk that substantiates credibility – and, from an advertiser’s perspective it relates to keywords in Google searches etc. giving us high ranking on the web and on You Tube. Once completed the film will be launched onto all possible Video sights, CD Baby, iTunes, Sound Cloud and others. The song will be downloadable as an mp3 or will be available as a physical CD. The DVD will also be for sale. So, you would think that just about does it right? That all we’re trying to do here is make money? Not at all. This is just another step in the process because our plan is that once the short-film is launched and previewed to the world, we will seek higher sponsorship funding through related corporations in the music industry, and that we will produce a 1 hour documentary for networks such as PBS or Discovery. Who knows? Maybe the channel that Mickey Jones is currently starring on, FX ( Justified – series ) would be interested.
In closing I want you all to know that if it weren’t for the team of Newspin Photo and Video of Olympia Washington, Hilltop Studios of Centralia, Calvin Taylor, Mickey Jones,Clayton Watson, drum- tech advisers Mike Lacey and Brent Jones, Sheryl D
Miner of Olympia, and the enduring patience of my lovely wife of 34 years, Kaye Maier, this project would not be possible. Watch for ” Phase 2 ” of the Rock It / David Shriver Tribute coming via Kickstarter and Amazon.com next week.
Nothing can stop me…but you all knew that didn’t ya?
