Be part of our next L.B. Rayne music video!!

1984…

A year to change all years. It was the year of the Macintosh computer. The year of George Orwell’s groundbreaking dystopian novel. The year Alex Trebek started hosting “Jeopardy”. But most importantly, it was the year that pop music icon Laurence Butler Rayne and his producer Hal Lowenstein released their greatest music video masterpiece yet… Terminate Our Love.

THE BEGINNING…

In the early 1980s, when director James Cameron conceived the idea for the first Terminator film, he had a vision to create something magnificent for the soundtrack of the movie… something that would change the face of the music industry as we knew it. In 1983, with the support of Hemdale Film Corporation, he immediately commissioned L.B. Rayne and Hal Lowenstein to create a theme song and music video, and a month later a masterwork was born.

AN UNEXPECTED TWIST…

Unfortunately, after careful review, Hemdale Film Corp. felt that the music video did not coincide thematically with the promotion of the film, and they shelved it. Though James Cameron fought vigorously for the music video to be released, sadly, being a young director with no clout, his voice was not heard and the music video never saw the light of day.

A FILMMAKER’S PASSION…

However, Mr. Cameron enjoyed the music video so much, it is said that he was given one of the last remaining 16mm prints of it, and that he continued to throw private viewing parties at his home in Los Angeles.

He even took the video with him during his week-long deep sea expeditions to keep himself and his crew entertained. It was on one of these dangerous journeys that catastrophe struck, and Mr. Cameron was forced to abandon his submarine on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. Sadly, the print was left with it, and was never recovered.

One last print of the video remained, safely tucked away in producer Hal Lowenstein’s apartment in the San Fernando Valley. Then, in 1994, the Northridge earthquake ravaged Los Angeles, and this print, too, was lost in the devastation.

The survival of any remnants of the music video seemed hopeless for 10 years, until…

A NEW BREAKTHROUGH…

In 2004, a breakthrough in time-travel technology gave us NEW hope.

Professor Klaus Von Goldberg, a renowned physicist and Purlitzer Prize winner, has constructed a near operational “Time Displacement Unit” from household appliances in his apartment in Sherman Oaks, California. To complete the TDU, Professor Von Goldberg will need to obtain a rare dilithium crystal to combine with A-grade plutonium which will allow him to assemble the worlds first fully functioning flux capacitor.

WHERE YOU COME IN…

With your support, we can provide the funds to finish constructing the time machine, travel back to 1994, and retrieve the last remaining print of Terminate Our Love before its destruction… and possibly, most likely even prevent the Northridge earthquake from ever happening.
