Crowdfunding establishes a web-based event that harnesses an artist's network and audience for funds, awareness, and authentic feedback. RocketHub Co-founder and CEO, Brian Meece sums it up as a new spin on an established idea: Beethoven + Social Media = Crowdfunding for the modern musician. Welcome to the re-birth of patronage. Music video projects are the perfect fit for this new type of fan engagement."
Jazz master, Rale Micic, describes the project: I believe that, like any other genre of music, jazz deserves good video. Because we will essentially be creating a 'silent' movie based on instrumental music, this project has global appeal built into it... The web, mobile devices, etc. make it possible to reach jazz fans in all kinds of new contexts. Though the web has kept music videos relevant, we are planning to reach audiences both within and outside the U.S. through more traditional television outlets as well."
