About this project

What I want to produce

A new zine (zeen: self published booklet of content) of photographs documenting and observing Meat Market (Oakland, CA) as they journey to the 2013 South by South West Music Festival in Austin, Texas this March for their debut performance. The trip begins in Oakland, traveling through Arizona, and New Mexico.

What I need to fund

Purchasing 50 rolls of 35mm black and white film

Printing 100 editions of the finished zine

Thank you to local business Photo Works of S.F. for their support towards developing color film and for being a supplier of 35mm black and white film.

A bit about the Calendar:
I worked with a good friend and artist Sean Vranizan to create this calendar of bands. These are photos I've collected over the last 4 years, of bands I've come across in a music scene that my friends inhibit.

These calendars were risograph printed onto newsprint. The matte fotos were hand mounted onto each page. The found wood was sanded for superior handling, and convenience!

Thank you Julia Warner at Vortex Riso for helping print this calendar.

Meat Market have made many screen printed t-shirts over the last year. They are designed by Rob Li Wong, Meat Market's guitarist/vocalist.

The shirt I send you? I have no idea what it will look like. But here is a selection of past ones.

Risks and challenges

Fulfilling this project will require a lot of time and energy. Those 50 rolls of film, which I hope to get your support to purchase, will all need to be developed, by me, scanned, edited and formatted for a fantastic finale. I am confident in doing this because this is what I love to do.

All other pledge prizes exist and can be accounted for. If you pledge I promise to bring you the goods!
