    On the Team

    Thank you! This amount means we get $20, which makes us happy and makes you a meaningful part of this campaign. We'll give you a shoutout on our Facebook page and advance pre-order notice for the CD – and If we’re able to offer discounts, you’ll get one. Plus you'll be part of the VCP poster, in a bigger font than the Splash folks. (Donor names will get progressively bigger from here.)

    Up Close and Personal

    We seriously appreciate your coming in at this level. Come take a peek into the creative process with a digitized copy of an archival LIAISONS videotaped interview.

These informal, candid interviews are unpublished and available nowhere else. Can’t decide who? Add another $20 for each additional! (amount over $45 is tax-deductible)
