Naildriver Launches IndieGoGo.com Campaign for Music Video
Altoona, PA-based metal artists Naildriver have launched a campaign on crowd-funding website IndieGoGo.com to fund their just-announced video for the original song, "Phoenix" from their upcoming debut CD.
The campaign can be found online here.
Naildriver has been selected by veteran New York City-based filmmaker and producer Chris Cayden to provide original music for his upcoming new drama series, "Blood of Kings", and the accompanying original soundtrack, "The Walk". "Blood of Kings" is a dark drama about power and corruption surrounding an independent Mixed Martial Arts fight promotion in New York City. The music is absolutely critical, as it sets the stage for each fighter entering combat, and reflects their very soul to the viewer as the fighter makes the long, slow, walk to the cage.
The lead single from Naildriver, "Phoenix" will be shot as a music video depicting one of the "Blood of Kings" fighters who continues to rise despite multiple challenges, both in the cage, and in life, showing the essence of the legendary Phoenix bird. This video will be included as a vital part of the final production package as the series is presented to various major cable companies, television, networks and multi-media outlets.
The "Blood of Kings" project is not Cayden’s first, as a director he has helmed several short films and coordinated a major film festival for several years. Cayden has worked with Pennsylvania musicians before, producing a music video (better off dead) for nationally signed artists, ‘vs the earth‘, which played on all MTV networks and VH1. This project for "Phoenix" is unique in that it will be shot locally, using local Pennsylvania assets and local tie-ins. Already on board are Tyrone native Cayden, the band themselves, and several local and regional businesses, including Al's Tavern and Pittsburgh-based company Wildcat Championship Belts. Negotiations are underway to utilize the talents of a nationally-known local Mixed Martial Artist as the star of the video.
Potential supporters of the video project will be able to donate securely via PayPal, in amounts ranging from $5 to $2500, with rewards provided by the band as a thank-you for those that donate. A detailed accounting of how all monies are used will be available to all donors. Rewards, or "perks" as the campaign refers to them, range from personal email thanks and social media shout-outs to band merchandise and album credits. The largest perk includes the one-of-a-kind custom made championship belt seen in the video and autographed by the video's stars and the band themselves!
