About the project
With nearly 20 years of existence behind them, ETHS has decided to bring the band’s career to an end.
To cap off this adventure in style and connect with their fans one last time, the band will give two final concerts : first in Marseille at the Moulin on April 8th, and then in Paris at the Trianon on April 30th.
To mark the occasion, ETHS’ original line-up will get together again : the band’s first and symbolic singer Candice will make her comeback, after 4 years away from the stage.
The Edza films association & the Kick Your Eyes collective have decided to join forces, and to put their complementary assets in the audiovisual media to good use by immortalizing this final moment with a recording of the concert in Marseille.
What are the funds for?
This project aspires to release a Bluray/DVD/ULTRA COLLECTOR CD pack, including the full concert at the Moulin in HDonBLURAY, DVD Standard & audio CD, along with many special features :
- All the music videos
- Previously unseen footage of the band’s early days (Soma Tour),
- A 4-pages booklet of images illustrating the group’s career.
- Some extracts of rare concerts, including the COMPLETE show at the 2005 Eurockéennes.
The « Tous des K » collective will be the graphic designer of the pack, its menus and of the concert itself. This 20 year-old graphic studio has produced many album covers, including IAM’s « L’école du micro d’Argent » and « Ombres & lumières ».
For this project to be achieved, we need fundings for many different things.
Our first goal is to reach 500 presales, that would cover all the production costs :
- Audio recording, audio mix & Mastering : 1.500€
- Video recording, Camera rental, cameramen : 4.500€
- Artwork conception, graphic design : 1.500€
- Video editing / Post-production : 2.500€
- Duplication of the pack with BLURAY/DVD/CD (500 copies), SACEM, SDRM : 8.400€
- Ulule contribution : 1.600€
To record all this, we will have 8 moving cameramen, including a travelling camera in front of the stage plus a camera on stage equipped with a Ronin stabilizer.
We will also have at our disposal a few fixed cameras and GoPros on both sides of the stage, to have as many choices as possible for the video editing.
Reaching that first 500 copies target will enable us to make this project a reality and to produce the packs; but obviously, if we go past this goal, we will as a result invest in more technical means, provide more special features… and, if the budget allows us to, maybe do a recording of the Trianon concert.
