Welcome to the Grissini Project Patreon page campaign !
Upon the years, other musicians joined the project before reaching the final instrumentation : Romain on the piano and the organ, Lilou as the singer, Bastien on the violin and finally Marwane on the cello.
Today, the Grissini Project, it's almost 70.000 subscribers from all over the world and 17.000.000 cumulated views on our videos : organ solo, with Lilou our vocalist, or as a trio piano violin cello. It's a project that now wish to professionalize, carried by 4 motivated musicians and friends, who all are devoting their life to music !
At the golden age of the numeric and the streaming, it's difficult for musical artists of our kind to find a stable economic model.
We always have been self-financed, we're proud of that since it's allowing us a great independence and artistic liberty.
However, right now our costs for the realisation of the videos and musics are constantly rising, when our incomes from our YouTube videos are meanwhile decreasing, as constantly.
YouTube unfortunately gives privileges to quantity instead of quality. Each of our videos represents dozens to hundreds hours of work : Transcription, arrangement, rehearsals, recording, editing, mastering, filming, editing, etc. It's difficult for us to do more than 1 video every two month for now. As a result, YouTube don't refer us very well and the earnings we have are lower months after months.
We hope, through this crowd-funding campaign, to be able to sustain this project with a monthly stability, that would allows us to keep this self-financed economic model, pursuing by the same way our projects, more ambitious each time !
Here is the principals costs that this campaign would support :
- Renting filming material and recording devices : Microphones, cameras, drones, lights, etc....
- Filming crew for the videos : Director, Director of the photography, location manager, camera assistant, drone operator, etc...
- Sound engineer : Presence of the technician for the recording, then editing session, mixing, mastering, etc....
- Costs of travels and accommodations on the places of the filming / recordings.
This campaign is a monthly campaign, but it's important to keep in mind that Patreon let you free : You can cancel at any time.
