WE DID IT! In 35 days, 86 backers on Kickstarter donated $9,070 to bring #ALLAROUNDUS to life!
Thank you isn't enough! It's been an incredible journey already and the love and support has been overwhelming.
Seth and I, along with our amazing cast/crew, can't wait to really get this film started now that we will have the equipment we need.
Our humble goal of $2,000 was surpassed in mere days and this total amount is going to bring you a film worth every penny! Our hearts are fully engaged and now we will keep you updated every step of the way.
THANK YOU for being a part of this!
The first thing I do every morning is check my emails. Today, I saw where one of our incredible backers increased her pledge amount from $200 to $1,500. We also had a new backer for $100. This put us OVER $6,500!!!!
Seth and I knew from the beginning that this film is supposed to happen and with the tremendous support received, we have nothing but confirmation.
Because of the extra donations, ALL AROUND US will be even that much better! We are now able to get the additional equipment needed and help with location/travel expenses and post-production!
Thank you doesn't seem like much compared to how we feel right now!
With only 7 days left in our Kickstarter campaign, we have added 8 more reward packages that are AMAZING! Be sure to check them all out.
Remember, you can always UPGRADE to a different reward if you see a new one you like better.
Please continue to help spread the word by sharing our campaign to everyone you know across social media! #ALLAROUNDUS
THANK YOU for your continued support of this incredible documentary! We're trying to get up to $6,000!
WE CAN DO IT!
Film shoot #4 was AMAZING! Last night we had a Mexican feast and a couple of vodka cranberries as we set up to film an intimate interview with Tracy Squire.
Tracy has fabulous stories to tell about her life, many including her life among celebrities in the music industry. But, just last year, Tracy was diagnosed with stage four lymphoma cancer. She has a very positive outlook. In fact, she is one of the most vivacious people I've ever met. Such a great energy about her!
She was only given 6 months to live (12 weeks ago) and has made peace if it is indeed her time to pass on to the other side, but she is still fighting! Seth and Tracy shared a very personal and emotional conversation about Tracy's feelings on the verve of crossing over if that were to happen soon. Seth saw a beautiful angel standing behind Tracy and I'm not giving away any more details!!!
We are officially announcing four talented artists that will be featured on the ALL AROUND ME soundtrack:
* Elsa Faith
* Asha Joshi
* Dave Garcia
* Renee Michele
* Deborah Louie
This is Seth. We are so excited that a very talented artist, Carolyn Masuoka, said YES to doing some drawings for our documentary and being our artist. This will include sketches/scenes to go along with a couple of stories, as well as different beings I have seen in the past, such as this green guy she drew from my description. This is something I saw in someone's closet.
DON'T FORGET THOUGH... We still need help with funding and less than 2 weeks to reach our ultimate project goal of $6,000.
Local filmmaker and director, Tristan David Luciotti (Vision8Studio), launched a Kickstarter.com project campaign on January 12th, 2016 to raise a minimum goal of $2,000.00 for the ground-breaking documentary All Around Us. With 15 days left, the project is 232% funded and still gaining momentum.
The film takes an intimate look inside the life of Psychic Medium Seth Michael, including personal interviews with friends: Animal Communicator Karen Anderson and Psychic Mediums Teresa Kleve, June Lundgren, Aurora and several others. This film will show all aspects of having this gift. You will encounter anxiety and fears to immense healing for those who are living as well as passed on, including pets. This will cover all types of spirits, spirit counseling, a trip to the Oregon Ghost Conference (OGC) in Seaside, OR, a haunting with White Light paranormal team of an old hotel and intimate, personal diary video footage from Seth. Questions will be answered.
This is the first feature film Vision8Studio will be producing and Tristan says that, "this film will show the raw reality of life as a psychic medium. It's not a Hollywood thrill film to entertain audiences. This shows the upsides and downsides of having this gift and we will explore it on every level possible. Seth is a no-brainer as the primary focus of this documentary. He is just a loveable guy and 100% sincere and honest. He has a big heart and this entire project is nothing but heart. This film has something for everyone: believers, skeptics and anyone in-between. It's a spiritual adventure you don't want to miss!"
Every donation made on Kickstarter.com comes with an incredible reward, which ranges from behind-the-scenes photos, autographed books, your name in the credits (including Associate and Executive Producer), readings with mediums, your chance to be in the documentary, tickets to the red carpet premiere and even dinner with Seth and Tristan. The rewards for this project start at only $5.
"Every dollar over our goal is only making this film even better," Tristan says, "We are now able to add funds for additional equipment, travel, post-production and distribution. I trusted God we would reach our goal and we did it in record-breaking time. The amount of support for this film is mind-blowing!"
An interesting twist to this documentary is the fact that the filmmaker is a Christian. Embarking on a film on this sensitive topic for him takes courage. "I have had my share of experiences in my life and it's important to show this isn't an evil or Satanic gift that Seth has. It's actually beautiful and I'm not afraid of any backlash I get from it. I think once people see this they may look at things in a brand new way. It's already been a fascinating journey."
