Here is what is written on Indiegogo:

I have released two EPs, one double vinyl album, four singles and 16 music videos in the past five years. My music has been reviewed in over 32 countries. And though I have connected with thousands of people through social media, I have met only a handful of people in real life #irl. I have an opportunity to travel to Cannes, New York or Crete and beyond. I hope this Indiegogo campaign will pave the road out into the world to celebrate some of the success of this work and connect with others.

Short Summary

How great an honor it is to be an official selection in a film festivals! Even greater an honor to be able to participate in them!

Everyone knows how hard it is even for commercial music and film to succeed and be profitable today. It is even harder for indie composers, musicians and directors. Many indie artists attempt—against all odds—to maintain their creative freedom. Even more so avant-garde artists that challenge the commercial demands of industry.

These film festivals around the world have managed to keep the doors open to new works and fan the flames of creativity. Not only do they welcome and celebrate inspiration, imagination and originality but also endeavor to connect and facilitate further collaboration for artists from every corner of the world.

I have released two EPs, one double vinyl album, four singles and 16 music videos in the past five years. My music has been reviewed in over 32 countries. This journey (mostly flying solo) made a multi-instrumentalist, recording engineer and director out of me. Every release has made just enough to record the next album and shoot the next video clip.

I have a chance now to fly to Cannes, New York and/or Greece to celebrate, collaborate I hope—and with your help— finally connect with others.

I thank you in advance for any contributions and for giving me the opportunity to share my journey with you and my work with others.

What you get

On the right there are perks! There are postcards, posters, CDs, souvenirs from wherever I go and even for the grand donors credits as associate and executive producers on IMDb!

Being Real

In this section Indiegogo suggests transparency. For every music release and video clip, I spend the money made from the previous one on the next release. There are another two EPs in the studio right now. I actually became a multi-instrumentalist and mix and master my own music out of necessity (read my bio here) . The profits from the sale of CDs, downloads and streaming go to shooting the next video clips. There is no budget to attend and fly to these events around the world and celebrate these accomplishments. The choice now is to spend all the profits from the “Metallia” album on attending just one of the festivals and delay the release of the other EPs for a year or with your help attend one or all three of these wonderful festivals around the world and share the journey with you. As always, I will be making behind the scenes videos of the trips to the festivals so you can share in the journeys . You can watch other behind the scenes videos on my YouTube channel

About Red Lion

Poster "Red Lion" Music Video Oh. Olivia Hadjiioannou

A numinous Red Lion illuminates the path the warrior goddess Metallia must take to align her fragmented selves and restore an ever-present multidimensional vision long lost to humanity.

Director/composer Olivia Hadjiioannou (aka Oh.) presents a consciousness-expanding visual and acoustic odyssey within a multidimensional psychedelic landscape.

Inspired by scenes from Federico Fellini’s, “8 1/2”, Lewis Carroll’s, “Alice in Wonderland”, Maurice Sendak’s, “Where the Wild Things Are”, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s, “The Little Prince” and ancient Greek myth.

“Red Lion” is the first in a six-part series of animated music videos by the multi-instrumentalist, Oh. for the progressive metal album, “Metallia”.

Director Statement

We all want to have answers to the ultimate meaning of why we are here.

There’s a time when you need to set aside everything you already know. We collect experiences and impressions with our minds and this increases the presence of our soul. There is a duality not only without but within because the mind receives information from both the body and the spirit. If the connection is weak between the spirit and the mind – there is no possibility to see the whole or our state and place in existence. Our minds – our everyday consciousness is cluttered with judgments, repetition, echoes of apprehension and fear, debates and doubts. If left on its own without the guidance of spirit; we exist in a negative world, alienated, in conflict with reality.

This missing connection is at the core of all our physical, emotional and mental health issues.

There is a way to recover our initial state so we can truly begin our journey here as we were meant to.

We must isolate the thoughts, feelings and emotions produced by the physical body first. Then it will be possible to isolate the thoughts, feelings, and emotions that are given by our spirits. Once both are recognized, a vision of an ever-present state of awareness awakens on its own.

Metallia acoustically and visually narrates this very intimate personal, spiritual and psychic journey. – Olivia Hadjiioannou aka Oh.

CD Metallia - Oh. aka Olivia Hadjiioannou

“Metallia” by Oh. is an epical prog-metal composition in six parts. A multi-layered sonic piece of ravishing solo electric guitars, time-bending tempo shifts, grooving bass lines and deranged drums.

This instrumental progressive metal album will reveal its intricacies and hidden depths over time. It will extract from your mind pure visions, to mend your mental pictures, preen presumptions and to elicit an element of the unexpected…. because that is what will transmute your subliminal mind map into a remarkable blueprint which will lead you from wherever you are now, to wherever you want to be.
