Projects in the News

Every week, we round up some of the stories about projects that made the press. We're happy to see them out there in the real world, and excited to share their progress with you! Read on. 

Kevin Collier of Time Out New York featured several currently funding projects, including An Oversimplification of Her Beauty, noting: "This movie about a love-struck Brooklynite is one of the 15 Kickstarter-backed films premiering at the Sundance Film Festival this year. Bed-Stuy director Terence Nance needs $15,000 for final edits and money to get to Utah."

Matteo Bittanti of Wired magazine profiled Tanya Marie Vlach's Grow a New Eye project: "On the one hand [the project] describes the development of my bionic eye," she says, "and on the other celebrates the idea of body-tech, the enhancement of the human race through technology."

Claire Martin of The Denver Post wrote about Fallene Wells' Modern Nouveau Spring 2012 project, noting that the designers appearance on Project Runway last year "made her more determined to establish her own fashion line, and still willing to take risks. To finance her Modern Nouveau collection, Wells has established a Kickstarter page — a web-based pledge drive that funnels donations to creative projects — that she hopes will raise $20,000 in 45 days. That's enough, she reckons, to finance a small production of the collection featuring a dozen of her 1920s-inspired dresses, blouses, jackets, skirts, coats and knickers."

Rjyan Kidwell of Baltimore magazinewroteabout a couple local Charm City-based projects, including Showbeast and Twelve O'Clock in Baltimore and explored the Kickstarter experience in depth: "The notion of achieving self-sufficiency seems pretty implicit in Kickstarter culture — after all, the entire concept is the venture-capital model brought to independent artists. But the fact that it's merely felt and not codified into the process qualifies as a radical departure. In fact, Kickstarter doesn't explicitly require (or even overtly encourage) a project to deliver the kind of return on investment that is usually the entire raison d'etre of venture capitalism. And no matter how the funded project performs financially, the drama fostered by Kickstarter's most important ingredient — the almost insidiously clever deadline mechanic — creates a unique bonding experience between the artists and their audience. Kickstarter draws together people who make and enjoy art, in ways that excite both groups."

Lindsay Eanet of Blackbook spotlighted Belle & Sebastian frontman Stuart Murdoch's film project, God Help the Girl, which is a bit more than halfway to its funding goal of $100,000: "someone has yet to claim the ultimate Kickstarter prize: if a backer kicks in a cool five grand to Murdoch's film, they receive his own copy of the rarest Belle & Sebastian record ever, a white-label press of Tigermilk, of which only two were made, and the other one was given to Murdoch's minister."
