We're up to 152 backers, with $2,760 pledged! Phenomenal progress! I am extremely grateful of your help, whether it be Emailing/"Liking"/Tweeting my project, and/or Pledging. "New York Shots" has allowed me to make many new acquaintances in New York & the US, as well as internationally (in Stockholm, Tokyo, and Sydney, to give you a few examples).
Update 1: REWARDS -- DELIVERY DATE
Cameras are still dispatched in various cities. For Backers, I originally set the "Reward Delivery Date" for December of 2011. In all fairness, I think I will push the Reward Delivery Date to January of 2012. Here's why: This will give us all more time to take a look at the new photos coming in (via my Tumblr). I can also sort which photos to include in Rewards packages. If you would PREFER your Reward to still be delivered in December, I can make that happen. Just let me know!
Update 1.5: REWARDS -- SURVEY
When my funding period comes to a close in 14 days, I will be sending out SURVEYS to all Backers, requesting mailing addresses, email addresses, et cetera. Until then, I will update the Backers with pertinent information via the Update panel.
Update 2: PUBLICITY
- On November 16th, my project was featured on the front page of NPR.org!
I also had an opportunity to work with the folks from Kickstarter for an afternoon; they joined me for a launch at Brooklyn Bridge Park!
- Both of these links (as well as several others!) can be found on my project's Kickstarter page here.
Update 3: MAP
I have created a Google Map of the New York-based launch locations. The map can be found can be found on my project's Kickstarter page, or here (direct link).
Update 4: ART SHOW
As we all know, the next phase of this project is the ART SHOW phase (aiming for opening in late February). Within the next two weeks, I will start "shopping around" for a space to have this show! I have gotten some wonderful offers from gallery/studio owners in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Will have to keep you informed...
As always, thank you.
Have a lovely day, Katie
