FOOL ON A BICYCLE
A narrative film that accompanies a live musical performance! -A story about a mysterious boy who pulls you into his strange journey.
This is by far the most important creative endeavor I have ever undertaken. For more than 30 years I have been creating music, making albums and touring. On my second solo album there is a song called Fool On A Bicycle. When I wrote this song, and for the decades I've been performing this song, I've had images in my head that go along with the music. When I got off the road, I knew it was time to do something more than just write another album. So day day after I sat in Whole Foods in Franklin Tennessee and wrote the story of the 'Fool On A Bicycle' that has been merely just images in my head for decades. I then approached experienced filmmaker Philip Lacy with my story. He was inspired by the story and turned it into a proper storyboard. We will begin to shoot the film this summer. This is again by far the most important project that I have ever undertaken. Some of the music for this film is already written. Some I will write as the film comes together. This is a music-based film, roughly about 1 hour long and much like Pink Floyd's 'THE WALL' or The Who's 'Quadrophenia', the songs and the music will drive this film. , There's a wonderful main character played by debut film actor Kyelen Arora. He will take you on his journey.
When the film is completed, I will tour through the country in various art centers/theaters etc... and perform the music live while you watch the film.
As I gain the support of the manufactures of SOME gear that I will need to take this on, I need your support to actually shoot. edit, pay for some gear, pay actors, pay for props etc... During this process I have learned just how expensive it is to do something this creative. So I need your help.
Won't you please be part of something super special to me, and to all involved.
