First we told you about The Loog Guitar on Kickstarter, and now we’ve got another exciting and interesting project for you to check out. It’s called “Creative Spirit,” and it’s a film about an inspiring journey with Keith Medley as he creates his 27-string “Harp”

Keith Medley is a creative spirit in numerous ways and a master of several artistic disciplines. But he remains a modest and humble, yet charismatic person who possesses a drive and determination to fulfill his dreams regardless of the obstacles and challenges he encounters. He is a master craftsman and woodworker, a skilled luthier who designs acoustic and electric instruments, a talented guitarist on any variation of stringed instruments, as well as an accomplished composer and performer. Many artists possess only one of these skill-sets. Keith is indeed a rare individual.
But this film is not intended to be another music bio-pic, although music is the core and foundation of this project. This is a film primarily about the creative process and how Keith’s examples and accomplishments can translate to anyone and everyone; even those who think they are not at all artistically inclined. Keith is an inspiring and articulate force and his lifelong journey to master numerous artistic disciplines are only a means to realize his dreams. His journey offers much for the viewer to learn from as he constantly designs and creates original art as tangible objects and pieces of music, with the process and journey towards completion equally fulfilling creatively as the end result.
Specifically, this film will document Keith’s performance’s on his existing, original Medley 27-string acoustic
Support of this project on Kickstarter will help cover production costs planned to take place in several locations in Tennessee, Kentucky and elsewhere, as well as the post-production and editing phases that will follow. Certain material costs used in Keith’s electric Medley 27-string will be covered with a portion of this funding. Additional costs to create artwork and packaging will also come from this budget. The final result is intended to be a 60 minutes or more, broadcast-ready HD deliverable as well as DVD and Blu-ray final release.
