What did you dream of as a child? Who did you think you would become? Where did life actually take you?
My name is Patrick Stark, and I am a filmmaker exploring these universal questions, and reluctantly facing my own fears in pursuit of an answer.
My entire life, I have been afraid of singing - in school during Christmas concerts, among friends - even in front my own family.
Essentially, I have been afraid of my own voice and the potential of ridicule from anyone who might hear my feeble attempts at carrying a tune.
The paradox is that I have also been fascinated by those who are seemingly not afraid to sing in front of others and who are ultimately idolized by millions - the rock star.
One Life No Regrets is my attempt to push past fear and SING, from vocal lessons and singing on the street with street musicians, to learning one-on-one and receiving the perspectives of actual rock stars such as WANDA JACKSON, G LOVE AND THE SPECIAL SAUCE, THE SHEEPDOGS, BIF NAKED, PRISM, TROOPER, and PAUL HYDE as well as writing and recording an original song. The ultimate challenge? Singing on stage in a stadium full of people with one of the biggest bands in the world, Irish supergroup, U2.
What We Need & What You Get
We are seeking $30,000 to cover the costs of completing a 90 minute edit of the film with original music. After 3 years of preparation and filming, we are close to crossing the finish line!
One Life No Regrets is a film with heart, a journey in pursuit of a seemingly impossible dream where fear is pushed aside in exchange for hope - not jut a one-off experience, but an opportunity to lead a more fulfilling life. We are reaching out to like-minded companies who also believe that every individual has the right and ability to pusue their dreams, even though the odds are stacked against them.
We have created perks that go above and beyond "contributions in exchange for a thank you credit and a copy of a DVD". We have come up with perks that give back so significantly to each contributing corporation that everyone wins!
Although we are extremely confident that we will surpass our fundraising goal, every contributing company can be assured that every single dollar that we raise will go directly into the edit and composition of original music.
