Over the past 10 years of seeing UM live, I’m always absorbed into their musicianship and watch each concert like a musical virtuoso tennis match. With VR, I wanted to transport the viewer into the close-ups of every musical note, shred, drum roll, and pure power that this band puts forth every show.

Crowdfunding to Build Independence

Presented by Seed & Spark

Malco Commons, Friday, Noon-130 p.m.


Crowdfunding to Build Independence is workshop designed to help you leverage the tools for great crowdfunding to build a direct relationship with your audience that will last your entire career. The only proven path to independence as an artist is a direct connection to your audience. Crowdfunding has become a fundamental piece of most financing plans for independent film. But most filmmakers miss the opportunity to leverage the power of crowdfunding for one film into an audience-building opportunity that can last an entire career – and provide the groundwork for effective distribution. In order to leverage this opportunity, it requires a new way of coming to work, and that’s what you’ll learn here. We’ve taught this class at over 100 film festivals, schools and organizations around the country, and gathered learning from the thousands of filmmakers we’ve met and hundreds of campaigns we’ve supported.

The Rock and Soul Museum in Memphis also opened in May of 2000 and features a section on the Pacers. In October of 2000 they were asked to play for a special show at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis honoring Sam Philips and his legacy at Sun Records.

They have played all over the world such as Japan, Australia, Europe, and Canada.  They have played the Lincoln Center in New York, the Library Of Congress and the Kennedy Center in Washington DC.  They played the Montana Folk Festival, Bangor, Maine Folk Festival, Richmond VA Folk Festival, and appeared with the Million Dollar Quartet in Chicago, IL
