Luke Slott’s Kickstarter Funded Project

Pearlz Dreaming

Super encouraging my blog followers to support this wonderful album project of Luke Slott.

There are some beautiful rewards for your support such as having Luke visit your community, or a skype hangout – but most of all a copy of the album.

Luke has been humbled and thrilled by the support, but many of us are not surprised because his musical talent and dedication to spiritual things, just speaks for itself.

The album is already definitely happening, but now the goal is to produce music videos for the songs.

“Growing up in Ireland, music was in the air. My childhood was a medley of my father playing in jazz clubs, my uncle playing in traditional Irish music sessions and my brother’s homemade hip-hop beats. I began writing songs in my teens and spent most of my youth playing in bands around Ireland.

Magic Fish Dreaming MAKES IT!

We’re so happy and thankful to announce that Magic Fish Dreaming has the green light.

Our project has lift off thanks to you,  all our wonderful backers.

We are so happy to know this book is going out into the world and grateful for everyone that believed in us from the first mention this kickstarter would be happening. Yes, thanks so much Writelinks, Children’s Book Academy,  and many, many more! The blog honour roll is going to be so much fun to put together.

Well Helene is beginning more intensive work on the storyboard!  She is keen to get cracking on the rest of the illustrations.

As for me, I am definitely going to sleep better tonight!  And we are still going to have some media coverage next week and have some brilliant news to share.

But there is more. Now we can go for a stretch goal!

A stretch goal is what we can do if we raise above our $9000AUD funds.

When putting together a kickstarter budget the thing most project coordinators do is work out the lowest amount they can raise in order to achieve their project.

However, there is always a goal post beyond that first goal.  For Magic Fish Dreaming we had further goals if we were able to manage to raise more funds this is what we would do.

STRETCH GOAL 1 – Add more pages of art and poetry! $15,000 AUD / 10348 USD/ 9478.71 Euros/ 7307 (GBP)pounds We can increase number of pages for the book to 40! Do some beautiful end papers with a special design from Helene.

STRETCH  GOAL 2 – Cover Charisma! $20,000+ (AUD)/ 13679.90 USD /12550.47 Euros/9611 (GBP)pounds Now we can print all the books in hard cover with a durable and attractive case binding. One poem can be translated into French or motu.

STRETCH GOAL 3 – Another Film! $25,000 (AUD)/ 1725 USD/ 15789 Euros/ 12171 (GBP) pounds June can create another engaging creative short poetry film featuring Helene’s art and June’s photography, voice, and poetry.

Help us to expand upon the initial  dream by continuing to invite others to pledge https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/juneperkins/magic-fish-dreaming

We would be delighted to welcome more to the Magic Fish Dreaming family!

If you could keep sharing our project that would be brilliant, because we have a chance over the next week, to attempt to make a stretch goal.

Would be fantastic if we could unlock another goal!

The best thing is that now, you, and we, can tell everyone this project is definitely happening.

Thanks to everyone joining our happy green light dance.

You can keep following our progress for this project at  our blog or facebook, where we also love to keep up with environmental news from around the world and share interesting links about that, and art and Queensland.
