Help me to make the music video of my first song!

Donation protected
My name is Elsa Monroe. I am a multi-talented artist who has ventured into various disciplines. My journey has been filled with experiences that ultimately nurtured a childhood dream long deemed out of reach: becoming a singer. My perseverance has been fueled by many encouragements, among which one of the most memorable moments was when my idol, Kelly Jones, the lead singer of Stereophonics, acknowledged my cover of one of his song after a setback during an audition. This allowed me to show resilience and continue on this path.



I dared to take the leap and quickly contacted Jim Lowe, a sound engineer and composer who has frequently collaborated with my favorite Welsh rock band, Stereophonics. Our collaboration led to the creation of "I Only Died Twice", the single I present to you today. The song's narrative is inspired by a love experience also marked by perseverance. Despite the weight of the past, past pains, and the accompanying fears, it is essential to venture into the unknown of each other. With Jim Lowe, we created a dark and intensely orchestrated musical world, reminiscent of the iconic James Bond themes.



Luck continues to smile upon me because after an audition, I was contacted by the renowned London-based director, Steve Montgomery, from the "Creation Company", who generously agreed to create this music video after listening to the song. The visual aesthetics of the video will be dark, elegant, and mysterious.



Michel Dugon, a distinguished scientist specializing in venoms accustomed to handling these unique animals, will also participate. He will graciously help us ensure safety during the shoot with one or even several black scorpions on my body. I will have the chance to share with you a daring video if I survive this adventure, of course.
Michel Dugon is a zoologist and venom researcher. He is exploring the potential of spider venom as a source for novel therapeutic agents in the development of the next generation of antibiotics, for example.
Here is his TED talk:


We need to cover the costs of the video music and additional costs. This includes illustrations created by the talented graphic designer Anna which be used on the single visual. After a thorough analysis, we estimated that a sum of 3500 € will be needed to successfully complete this project.
I invite you to dare the adventure with me! Join me on this unique musical journey and help turn this dream into a reality. Every support matters, and together, we can create something truly special. Thank you for supporting independent music and bold art!
