I, Brandon, was booked to help Dj, Vj, bar tend, as well as setup and take down at the Spectra Spot & Tempted UV this year at the regional decom for burning man "Youtopia 2014 Revelation Revolution - Show Yourself". I purchased my ticket full price and paid my way with no help just for the experience of this amazing event. While doing so, I stayed in camp most of the time I was there to work. As anyone would, on Saturday, I decided to take a break and venture out to see what the other camps looked like. As I was headed back through camp, I was confronted by two of my dear friends who informed me that the main computer I use for visuals for my company "What You Want Productions" (a late 2013 MacBook Pro) had been stolen from a tent in front of the stage while it was running the projections. The laptop had been stolen by a group of 3, 2 men and a women. When approached to try and stop them one motioned to a gun as they hastily walked off.

This FundRazr is to help recuperate some or all of the cost of the laptop so that I can continue to make visuals, do shows, and continue with my business as "DVJ Cheshire". I am currently booked for more shows and while I do have some back up equipment, none are as useful and powerful as the computer I lost at this event. Additionally this computer was setup with tons of software, custom visuals, custom plugins, and things I specifically coded and wrote myself to share visually with the world.

I am not a person who usually asks for help nor easily accepts handouts, but any help with this situation will be greatly appreciated. If met I will take many pictures, video, and post to social media all of the events, gigs, and shows that I will continue to do in the future so that each donator can see exactly what I do as well as how their money influenced me as well as everyone who gets to see my visuals at events.
