My name is Rustam! I am a musician and aspiring director from Kazakhstan.
For a very long time I went to make something really worthwhile, and here I am, in front of you. A couple of months ago, I started to make my first single with the first music video as a director.
Here you can see some scenes that have already been shot and shots from the backstage. As you can see, something really interesting is happening. I must explain why this is not just a song and a music video, but really something important.
By making this I want to show what's really going on here, in my country. I want people of Kazakhstan to know that we can express our opinion, f.e., in the form of creativity as I do. I want to show other countries that we have big problems. First of all, with freedom of speech. And with the attitude to ordinary people. There is a really big brick wall between us and people who rule the country. My music video is not political, it's kinda metaphorical, so don't worry about it.
In general, I want to finish what I started. I organize everything alone, and today I don't have enough money to pay the actors and crew to finish filming . I need to shoot even more than half of the video and send my track for mixing and mastering to my friends in Los Angeles. The amount is small, so I really count on your understanding and your help. Together we can do something serious and very useful not only for me, but also for the population of the whole country. Thanks a lot, friends!
I plan to send all backers information on further filming of the music video by mail.
Backers who donate $500 or more will be credited as music video producers. All the backers will be thanked in the final credits of the video.
Payments to actors and crew (12 actors, 2 operators and 1 movie editor) - $900
Choir recording (includes sound engineer services, choir and choir director services, equipment and premises rental) - $500
Music track mixing and mastering - $400.
