SEPULTURA Need Your Help Producing Their Official Documentary!
SEPULTURA are calling all the members of the tribe, in order to help them out with the production of the official SEPS documentary. Read on...
"The long awaited documentary about SEPULTURA’s incredible journey from Brazil to the world. Filmmaker Otavio Juliano has been following SEPULTURA for the better part of 2010-2013, a time of tension and triumph for the band, as they toured and recorded their album 'Kairos'. Nothing has been off-limits. This amazing story will go through SEPULTURA’s history, myths, conflicts, personnel changes and struggles with the Internet economy in the early 2000s as well interviews and rare footage. This documentary is certain to bring fans closer to the band they love.
"About 50% of the film has been shot so far. We have witnessed this historic band experiencing wrenching transformations and unprecedented growth. We opened SEPULTURA's vault and dig into the best rare and unseen footage of the last 30 years. We will see them at their most vulnerable and human, and also as idols of the heavy metal genre. Those elements make the overall film an uncommonly powerful statement.
"Our goal is to make this full length documentary film to raise the most money, breaking all of the sites’ records in the documentary category.
"We want the film to premiere in 2014. For that, InterFace Filmes has already put down the first $100,000.00 to get production going as we have been on the road for the last 3 years with the band.
"We are starting Kickstarter at $100,000,00 just to cover some of the production trips, crew, equipment, rights, image releases, taxes, among others, but our ULTIMATE goal is to raise about $1,000,000.00 to cover the remainder of the production. Anticipated outlays include travel expenses for interviews with former band members and music biz luminaries, as well as all the post production costs, including killer graphics and global distribution to the broadest possible extent.
"If we raise more than $1 MILLION we might even be able to make part of the movie in 3D. 30 years of SEPULTURA in 3D? WHY NOT?
"So, let’s get this going right now! We only have 30 days!"
