About

ABOUT ME

Hi there! I am the creator of the YouTube channel Artist Rage and website Artist Rage, where I teach my viewers how to draw, paint, and create. 

THE PROBLEM

My production has currently come to a halt on my traditional drawing, painting, and diy videos because my camera sadly, is no longer working. I am in need of a new camera to continue production.

THE SOLUTION

I hope to raise $500 to cover the cost of a low end camera (the giveaway and kickstarter costs) so I can get back to making drawing, painting, and diy videos.

WHY HELP

 With your help, I can make higher quality videos for viewers learning and entertainment enjoyment and I can continue making drawing, painting, and DIY videos. The arts, especially a lot of fine arts practices, are disappearing with the digital era. While I do create videos for digital media, I mainly focus on fine art processes, techniques, and practices. The camera is my way of documenting it, uploading, and sharing my knowledge. While you may be wondering how how $350 camera is higher quality than what I previously have uploaded before my camera died, just so you know, it was over 8 years old!

WHY $500? WHY NOT $1000?

I want to get back to filming drawing, painting, and DIY videos as soon as possible. Yes, a $1000 camera is much nicer and will have better production value than a $350 camera, but I want to get back to filming, creating, and teaching art on YouTube. I love sharing my passion for the arts and want to share all of the knowledge I have through college and working with other fine artists. If more is pledged, then I'll get a nicer camera along with some special reward for everyone (depends on how much is pledged; see stretch goal).

ESTIMATED COST

 I want to ensure you that all of the $500 goal is going towards a new camera to film my fine art videos and the giveaways. 

The camera to replace my old, now dead, camera is a Cannon Vixia HF R52. It retails around $350. The remainder is going to Kickstarter fees and giveaway fees, including shipping, supplies, card stock, printing...etc.

I can film the skype call and upload it to my Youtube channel so others will know more about you and your art! Your choice. (limited quantity)

STRETCH GOAL

If the raised amount is more than $500, I'll invest in a nicer camera for even high quality production. If a lot more is pledged then I'll invest in new lighting and so on. I'll also either do a special video on YouTube or send something special to all the backers $5+. I'll update with what it'll be if this even happens. ;)

Risks and challenges

The risks and/or challenges I see having to work through is all depending on the amount of backers. Obviously if there are a lot of people who back that'll mean more products to ship and/or more people who are demanding one on one time, which can mean a week or two longer than expected arrival of goods or time. The one item that will take the longest is the YouTube drawing requested video, which I aim to have all requested videos finished by Feb 2015 at the LATEST. If something doesn't arrive or happen on planned date, I will make sure to keep in touch with you until you receive pledge item.
