About this project

CASTLEKINGS STORY

My name is Matthew Chatburn. I'm Australian-born, Brooklyn-based, and photography is my creative strong suit. I've been living in New York since 2012 and the one thing that kept catching my attention was each person's constant strive to get things done, from creative projects or deadlines at work, to simply catching the next train.

One Saturday during a busy shift at work I glanced out the window to take a breathe and suddenly everything seemed to move into slow motion. The kitchen hustling, table conversations, drinks coming through, people rushing by outside, cars speeding along...and then it hit me: somewhere in the middle of all that hustle, be it from the pressures of big city living or the strain of every day life, we all need moments to STOP, catch our breathe, get inspired, and then move forward again.

CASTLEKINGS will never be out there to beat the competition, but will join alongside other publications that have, well, inspired ME to stop and create. We will feature stories not only about those who have "made it," but also creatives who are still on the journey and pushing boundaries within the realms of PHOTOGRAPHY + ART + SURFING + CULTURE.

TEAM 

Working with a team to build something is a strong foundation for this project. Having the eyes and ears of people I trust surrounding me is what makes the CASTLEKINGS process more defined and exciting. Each with expertise in their field, we have the cohesive goal to create something real and inspiring in every aspect of the magazine. 

Matthew Chatburn - Creative Director 

Myke Herman - Photo Editor 

Brittany White - Assistant Editor 

ISSUE I

CASTLEKINGS ISSUE I will feature 6 stories about creatives: Jimmy Fontaine + Cole Barash + Mr. Grizzle (Australian artist) + NYC band ROSIE STREET + Surfer Christian Yeager. We will also feature original photography that follows a band of New York City misfits on their journey from Colorado to Florida. 

Design is important; CASTLEKINGS will be clean and eclectic. 

WHAT YOUR SUPPORT MEANS

All funds raised go directly to the printing and production of the first issue. To be completely transparent, here's what we need:

Printing and Shipping: $10, 000

Production for editorials, photographers and journalists: $3,000

Legal fees to jumpstart the CASTLEKINGS business : $1,000

Release Party + Shirts + tote bags : $1,000

The main goal is to cover the costs of ISSUE I, but we won't stop there! We hope to produce further issues and create a space to feature artists at all stages in their careers - people around the globe who are devoted to creative inspiration.

The beautiful thing about the CASTLEKINGS is that it can't happen without a collective bunch of individuals who are willing to invest in a dream. 

Risks and challenges

We understand that we will face challenges as we move forward with the production of CASTLEKINGS. Printing could be delayed, distribution processes could slow us downs, etc. One thing we've learned about the creative journey is that our support system is crucial! Thanks for backing us along the way.
