I created my first Kickstarter campaign this past Monday 3/19/12. Here’s what it is.
I’ve known and worked with singer/songwriter R.M. Charde (‘Bob’) on various music and art projects for over 20 years. In 2007, I produced a song of his called “Good Morning”, which David B. Levy animated into a short film. The film was a success; it airs on Nick Jr, and made the rounds at every major kid’s film festival.
Here’s some extra back story you won’t read on Kickstarter. In 1998, Bob and I co-scored David’s first film Snow Business, which placed second for Best Score at the ASIFA Festival of the same year. I believe it was John Canemaker’s Bridgehampton that took first. It was at this after-party that I first met Don Duga. I was living in the Hamptons at the time and actually gave Don a ride out east. We’ve cast Don Duga to be our next animator for Bob’s song “When I’m With You” and everything else you need to know is on the Kickstarter page. You can also pledge monetary support via Paypal. Click and enter your amount. The charge will be listed as “March Kickstarter Campaign”.
Legal note: Paypal DOES NOT work like the Kickstarter model of all-or-nothing. Once you submit any money to CA70 Music, INC. (a for-profit S Corp) you support the endeavors of CA70 Music, INC. via a non-refundable pledge. Paypal pledge = I trust Chris Jones/CA70 and his projects without Kickstarter. I do not expect to/WILL NOT see my money back if the Kickstarter campaign fails. For Paypal’s complete legal dossier, click here. In the event that a Paypal pledge arrives to an under-funded Kickstarter campaign, I will be converting said funds to Kickstarter pledges. I will do my best to align that individual to corresponding incentives but CA70 is NOT legally required to do so.
