What wild ride!
I just completed my Kickstarter for my event, Visualize Somerville 2. It got fully funded, which is amazing. Last minute pledges came in and really pushed it past the threshold at the 11th hour. I can certainly tell you, Kickstarters are very stressful. The pledges, as I researched, are like “U”. They start strong with all your friends and family pledging and helping you along. Then there is this long stretch where you get barely any, but you keep having to post post post about the event. That is a very hard time to deal. It seems every post produced 1 or 2 pledges, and I just felt like I was beating a dead horse! Especially with Facebook being harder to reach a crowd now… It was a hair raising few weeks. Onward though, as we got funded, now I have to get all sorts of gear, projectors, access points, the works. This is a big event and has a lot of moving parts. Some are not in my control, and that is scary too. This is also my MLA Capstone project (replaces a Thesis), at Harvard Extension, so I figured go big with it!
Next up is this:
A VJ friend of mine just dropped a huge gig on my lap, VJ for 3LAU in Virginia this Friday! Whoa. I am getting flown there, play the show, and flown out Saturday morning to NYC. Why NYC? Because there is another Cityfox event, and I am not missing that. I get to babysit projectors and do some VJ work, and then helping with breakdown. Money in the bank and I get some fun music times as well.
Combine this all with the upcoming Further Future event AND moving to LA, and I have a LOT on my plate.
Living the fast life is hard. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
