#TheMockingbirdMan is a project in which I want to continue impersonating world famous people, making exclusive YouTube comedy music videos in English. I financed Putin, Putout, the first video of the project, by myself, but now I need your help with Donald J. Trump...

We did it!

Thank you so much, we reached the main goal!!! It will be enough to cover the basic production costs! In the meantime the overall costs of the video are getting higher and higher, so every pledge is very helpful. If we raise too much money, it’ll be used to cover production costs of new videos.

The tickets for the premiere of the video with a concert on July 17 at Siti teater in Ljubljana at 20.00 are SOLD OUT, but there are still 20 VIP tickets left.

By purchasing #TheTrumpPremiereTicket from now on, you get a ticket for the additional event on the same day, at the same place (SiTi Teater, Ljubljana), at 18.00. There are still 238 tickets left.

Who am I and what's my story?

I'm Klemen Slakonja - Slovenian actor, TV host, impersonator, comedian, singer, songwriter.
I've made a lot of impersonations of mostly Slovenian celebrities for various TV shows I've hosted since 2007 and I've fallen in love with comedy music video making in 2012 when I made the One Man Band Aid video in which I impersonated world famous singers begging Europe to give Slovenia the maximum 12 points at the Eurovision Song Contest.

After that, I wanted to produce new English videos to be featured in my TV shows, but their ratings were drastically lower than Slovene impersonations because of the foreign language, so I was advised not to do them anymore.

However, the views on YouTube started to grow extremely fast. When I saw how my Žižek video went global, an idea for #TheMockingbirdMan came to my mind...

What is #TheMockingbirdMan?!

As you probably know, a mockingbird is a bird which mimics the singing of other birds and I'm #TheMockingbirdMan who wants to continue mimicking world famous people through my comedy music videos with high production values and original music. Until Putin, Putout, the TV stations I worked with covered the production costs of my videos, but now I want to stay independent.

I've been looking for sponsors for more than a year and a half and as I haven't found any, I decided to cover the production costs of Putin, Putout (the first video of the project) by myself. Right now, I've got five more #TheMockingbirdMan videos on my mind and the list of people I want to impersonate is getting bigger and bigger, so eventually I hope to develop #TheMockingbirdMan into a big YouTube brand.

Didn't millions and millions of views make me a millionaire?!

To be honest, I thought getting millions and millions of views on YouTube would make me enough money to continue creating new videos. Sadly, I was wrong. I earned just a tenth of invested money and still haven't found any sponsors who would back my project.
So now I turn to you - MY BIGGEST SUPPORTERS!

How can you help me...

If you like my videos as much as I love doing them, I'd really appreciate your help. I've got the song, the video concept and my great team ready for the Donald Trump video. I'm planning to start filming it in mid June and to cover the basic production costs I need at least 10.000 EUR.

But the more we get, the more we can afford and the better we can make it. You can help make the video happen by pledging any amount you can afford and spreading the word about my campaign on Adrifund.
I can't do it without you!

What can I offer you for your support?

I've prepared interesting perks for you. Check out the cool rewards!
I'll do my best to fulfill all of the rewards after the video goes online as soon as possible.

Launch event - #TheTrumpTicket reward

I'll do my best to fulfill all of the rewards after the video goesonline as soon as possible.

Launch event - #TheTrumpTicket reward

A special launch event of the new Trump video will take place on 17 July 2016 at 20.00 at Siti teater in BTC Ljubljana, Slovenia. I will be performing some of my songs live with DJ Pier and exclusively showing you the Trump video for the first time, before I release it on YouTube at midnight after the event.

If I succeed with this campaign, my team will contact you (through email address used when making the pledge) to send you information regarding how to collect your ticket on the day of the launch event.

The number of #TheTrumpTicket is limited to 200 tickets (SOLD OUT).

THE TICKETS FOR THE 20.00 SHOW ARE SOLD OUT. THERE ARE NEW TICKETS AVAILABLE FOR THE ADDITIONAL SHOW AT 18.00 ON THE SAME DAY (238 remaining).

And if you want to witness the actual posting of the Trump video to YouTube in my company, then #TheBackstageVIPTicket is what you want. This reward includes karaoke after party with me and the team. You can just sit back and watch or sing along with special guests... And of course this reward includes everything from #TheThankYouSong reward.

The number of #TheBackstageVIPTicket is limited to 50 tickets (20 remaining).

For the rewards that include making special videos for my supporters, I will get in touch to discuss a reasonable due date. All such rewards will be fulfilled between September and December 2016.

Rewards that contain other (lower pledge amount) rewards, do not accumulate. For example: If you choose the #TheThankYouSong reward (for 50 EUR) that includes #TheTrumpPostcard, #TheTrumpPremiereTicket and the #MyLucky36perk you get a total of ONE ticket for the launch event.

Conclusion

If we reach the goal of 10.000 EUR I'll be able to do the Trump video and it will be out on YouTube on July 18 2016. But the more we get the more we can afford and the better we can make it.
If we don't reach the goal of 10.000 EUR you will get your money fully refunded. It's that simple.
I really need your help to make this project happen and I strongly believe we can make it together. I thank you for all your support!

About Putin, Putout video

Interesting facts / Useless information:
- We shot it in Junuary 2016, in just one day.
- We initially wanted to shoot in November 2015, but we couldn't get a studio.
- I got the idea for the song a year and a half before we actually shot it, while taking my baby for a stroller drive on a hot summer day by the Croatian sea.
- When the 'Putin, Putout' phrase came into my mind I checked the internet as soon as I could to see if somebody else had thought of it and couldn't find anything. Well, later I started noticing the phrase.
- It premiered as an interval act in Slovenian national final for the Eurovision Song Contest which I've hosted, so a lot of people thought it was actually the Slovenian entry for the Eurovision.
- I financed it by myself and some team members shot it for free to make it easier for me.
- I recorded all the voices for the song.
