Recently, I composed the score of a short film project that won a contest and is part of a festival in Cambridge, Massachusetts on June 29th. 2 problems. I live in Dayton, Ohio and after doing some numbers crunching, I realized I wouldn’t have enough money for both hotel and transportation. After exhausting all my options (aka family members 😛 ) I created a go fund me campaign. I don’t particularly like crowd funding because it feels like I’m begging, but after remembering a potato salad kick starter inadvertently got funding for $50,000 (which happened in Columbus,OH btw), I realized asking for $300 to go experience a moment of my life and career that I’ll never have again is modest in comparison. Thanks for your time reading this. Please share and I hope to see you in Massachusetts on the 29th!
I know I said no new content would come until June 22nd but I have some amazing news. I was part of a winning short film project for the Flicks4chicks contest and now it’s part of a festival in Cambridge, Massachusetts. One problem though. I’m in Dayton,Ohio and after number crunching I realize the crippling $310 round trip for the Greyhound Bus is preventing me from going. Honestly, this isn’t a lot of money, but on short notice and rent to pay, it’s a pretty tight squeeze. So, I’m humbly asking for your assistance. I started a Gofundme campaign (don’t all sigh at once). There will be a campaign video coming in the next couple days. I appreciate your time reading this and I hope you consider supporting me and this next step of my artistic journey. Go to https://www.gofundme.com/jamesfilm to support!

Hi, I’m James Revels III, a freelance composer from Dayton, Ohio that promotes science , art , math , music and writing . Recently, I was asked by a long time reader of my blog to compose music on a short film project for theFlick4Chicks contest hosted in Cambridge, Massachuesetts. Winning films would be showcased June 29th at Brattle Theater, a local indie film spot in Cambridge. Long story short, our film was among the chosen ones! Bad news is the travel cost is outside of my budget. On a Greyhound bus, It’s $155 ONE WAY, for a roundtrip total of $310. Although, this isn’t my first short film project, it’s the first project I’ve ever worked on this is playing in an actual theater. I also recieved no compensation for my work on the score. This was a labor of love that serendipitously grew into something more. I appreciate your time spent reading this and hope you decided to help support me on the next step of my artistic journey. Thank You
James Revels III
Know anyone who makes cool music? Shoot me a link to their Soundcloud, YouTube or Bandcamp page and if I like what I hear I’ll feature them. If I get enough submissions maybe, just maybe, I’ll post two eargasms a day.
