The first music video recorded in space: No CGI necessary!
An artist wrote a short story about an astronaut in space 13 years before an astronaut was first in space and another artist read that story and adapted it into a film about an astronaut in space 20 years after the short story was written and another artist got high and saw that film and was inspired to write a song about an astronaut in space and an astronaut heard that song and sang it while in space 44 years after the song was written and 65 years after the short story was written.

All of this has happened before...
"The ancient and common custom of Hellas, which still prevails in Italy and Sicily, did certainly leave the judgment to the body of spectators, who determined the victor by show of hands. But this custom has been the destruction of the poets; for they are now in the habit of composing with a view to please the bad taste of their judges, and the result is that the spectators instruct themselves; and also it has been the ruin of the theatre;"
--From Plato's Laws, Book II
Only 50 left!...
Monies to go toward the scifi-fantasy film project ARTEMIS ETERNAL, obviously!
What you get:
+ 1. You get one of the last first-edition copies of the hardcover book Aidmheil, personally inscribed to you by director/author Jessica Mae Stover (that's me). This means that I write you a dedication note on the inside cover. Here's the official book page and the most in-depth overview.
+ 2. You become an official ARTEMIS ETERNAL WINGMAN at the $100 Aurum-level!
- Aurum with your personal link (shiny!)
- Your name in the film's end credits
- Added to the 'Who's In' official site Wingman list
- Wingman street cred/officially part of our community
- Periodic e-mail updates, project invites and adventure opportunities
- Independent high quality cinema and experimental media production: You're a part of it, in the mix, making it happen, no wimps!
+ 3. OMG! You will be added into a drawing for one of four high-quality artisanal prizes! (see below)
In the notes section please indicate who exactly you want me to inscribe the book to. If there is no note, I will assume you do not want me to inscribe your copy. If you have any difficulty specifying then please e-mail me at jessica [at] jessicastover [dot] com.
You can also purchase a BAM!♥ for a friend as a gift. All you need do is specify the details in the notes section on the order form. Your giftee will receive a direct Wingman welcome e-mail from me, which I will coordinate with you.
In addition, everyone who buys a BAM!♥ Wingman package will be entered into a drawing. Since this is a limited run, the odds of winning are NICE! Plus, I reserve the right to add even more prizes.
The four prizes:
♥. A superbly limited edition ARTEMIS ETERNAL art print numbered and signed by artist Christopher Shy and filmmaker Jessica Mae Stover. Only five of these are being printed. In the fraternal spirit of Wingmanliness, one of the concept art funders (Sean S.) has graciously contributed his print to this cause. It was completely his idea, and I'm happy to honor it. He is also contributing a limited TSL print...
♥. A limited edition THE SILVER LEGACY art print numbered and signed by artist Greg Martin and filmmaker Jessica Mae Stover. Explore the art here.
♥. A BAM!♥ package (personally inscribed Aidmheil and Wingman Membership) for a BAM!♥-ing friend of your choice. If you wish, you and I can conspire to send this directly to them as a surprise. I will coordinate this with you.
♥. A 30-minute video chat with filmmaker Jessica Mae Stover (that's me), a Wingman t-shirt (for your wearing pleasure!) and a super awesome handknitted scarf made just for you by my mom. You customize the color. No kidding!
Tweet this! Tell the BAM!luvas out there all about your BAM!luvin' ♥
