Bleed into One will be an uncompromising, controversial view of the history as well as the people behind Christian Rock. The narrative will primarily be told through interviews, archival footage, music video and live performance. Not shying away from criticism of the genre, Bleed Into One will feature honest summations of pundits, critics and offer a variety of pop culture references on the subject including but not limited to “South Park”, “The Simpsons”, “Rolling Stone,” “Saved,” “Alternative Press,” “King of the Hill,” and comments from comedians and other detractors.

With any music-based project such as Bleed into One, much of the budget must be designated toward securing the licenses to legally play specific music. Music licensing is expensive and necessary. We have estimated that$30,000 will be needed to secure these licenses for the large volume of music we plan to use.
In addition to the music licensing, the other big expense will be the final stages of post-production so that the project can be completed. Final editing, graphics & animation, which we estimate to be another $30,000.
If more than $60,000 is raised, the remaining amount will go toward an extensive marketing plan for better reach.
