Submitted my project to Kickstarter

2. May 2013 07:08 by nick | 27 Comments

I submitted my project to Kickstarter.

Before submitting it, I aksed few friends to give their feedback and they were consistent that my video was too long. I removed a whole minute from it. Now it is about 3 minutes and in it I try to cover only the important points.

Because of the delay, I had to change the time for the group to be in July. This will give us enogh time to run the Kickstarter campaign and work with the travel agency to book the hotels, also rent a mini-bus and so on. I was surprised to learn that Amazon keeps the funds for 14 days, if the Kickstarter projects succeeds...

I will post the video here, after I receive the note from Kickstarter about the project. Let's see it they approve it.

Waiting....

Getting the video done

29. April 2013 11:17 by nick | 7 Comments

It takes a lot to create a simple video for the Kickstarter project, especially when it is your first video you've ever made. I almost gave up on the whole idea of using Kickstarter!

I made the video, now I am editing it and adding few things to make it more interesting.

I hope my accent will not get in the way and people will get excited about this photowalks idea as much as I am.

Finishing Kickstarter post

2. April 2013 21:36 by nick | 0 Comments

It took a while to create the Kickstarter project. I am down to creating the introduction video. I also managed to get rates for hotels, mountain guides and for the photographer. It turns out it is more than I expected, but this shouldn't stop me from posting this on Kickstarter. I should let Kickstarters decide if the idea is worth to be supported and is good or not.

The photographer I am looking for needs to have experience, speak good English and be familiar with taking pictures in different light conditions. He/she needs to have experience taking landscape pictures and portraits, which is kind of a challenge.

The project is almost ready. Once I create the video (never done a video before), I will submit it to Kickstarter and hope for them to accept it and publish it.

Getting closer and more definite with realizing my idea.
