THE STORY


Kickstarted follows three creators as they set out on their journeys to raise the money needed to fulfill their lifelong dream using crowdfunding.

BRAD CARTER

Brad is trying to raise $45k on Kickstarter to make his first and only album.

Brad has a degenerative disease. Millions watched him play his guitar during a brain surgery to control it. Now, time is running out.

Brad is an actor, artist, occasional stand-up comedian, and a guitarist from Macon, Georgia now living in Los Angeles, Ca.  In the past year he's had three surgeries on his brain to help him play guitar again. Maybe you saw it on the "Today Show" or your local news. He never knew any of that was going to happen and all he wanted was to be able to play guitar for a few years longer.  

His disease is called "Essential Tremor". This is a progressive neurological disease and there is no cure. His doctors think it could very well become Parkinson's in the near future. He wants to make the most of the time the surgery has given him by recording an album.

We follow Brad's journey as he raises the money he needs from people who love his story, to finding out the surgery hasn't worked and having to go under the knife again, risking death to fulfill his life long dream.

But now he's got the chance he's always dreamed of is he going to be able to pull it off and make an album he's truly happy with?
