Scythia is an independent metal band based in Western Canada. We are planning to film an epic fantasy music video with a reknowned director Richard Olak.
Independent bands often have to pay for recordings, tours, merchandise and their own music videos. Given that music videos are the most expensive form of media a band will deal with, it's often the one that gets either overlooked or done on a budget. That's why we are not cutting corners here. We know that people WATCH videos and share them and enjoy them for years to come.
So with the help of generous sponsors, we can make this dream happen! We are already investing our own capital into this project but really need the help of our fans and supporters to make it a reality.
What We Need & What You Get
Basically, like any project in the film industry, there are numerous expenses to cover including: actors, extras, sets, props, editing, cameras, lighting, special effects and food to keep the team going! These contributions will directly support fledging independent actors and film crews in their career and essentially contribute to a project that the team can stand behind.
We truly value people's generousity. Without that, we would not be where we are and continue doing what we are doing. To show our appreciation, we are giving away PERKS to reward people for their contributions. These are rare gifts that are not normally sold. They are imbued with personal qualities of Scythia like an autograph or putting our time into tailoring something just for you (like a theme song!)
Even if we don't reach $2100, we will still continue with the project but we will have to make cuts to some of the really cool stuff. And if we exceed our goal, well that additional funding will be used for CGI, better costumes and hopefully some rippin' special effects!
Other Ways You Can Help
