Two weeks to go, 10% funded, advice needed


At the halfway point of the fundraising and have just broken the 10% barrier.  What next in the crowd funding cycle of short promotions with many spamming e-mails?  Some advice, help and the enthusiasm to buy into the concept from another 200+ individuals or businesses is needed. 

I have had a few messages from online businesses selling their skills and recommending aggressive Facebook campaigns.  For the Deranged Drums on Digital Vistas project it would, in my estimation, be similar to putting an advert in a bus stop.  General and informative but not targeted at those that may be interested. 

The video on YouTube with my performance of a full version of one of the 37 sections (Vista Q) – has been viewed more than the promotional trailer, I’m glad the music has appeal rather than my voice-over.

All the information and the souvenirs that will be sent after the event can be found at 

If you would like to be included in the business sponsorship draw, e-mail your name and pledge of £20 to and I will be over to see you. 

Thank you for reading and any advice would be welcome and definitely considered.
