Risks and challenges

Barking Hand: A Living Tin among many others serves as a big bright light revealing the great genius behind Kickstarter. Bravo to the Kickstarter team! This sort of endeavor really wouldn’t be possible without this platform and a community like us and by that I mean people like you and me that support projects with no commercial market. I am not sure I would pay $123,000 for a 4 minute video even if I had that kind of cash, but I would love to pay $300 for a one of a kind beautifully framed tintype. Better yet only $40 for the tintype unframed.

In short the biggest risk and greatest challenge at this stage is this Kickstarter campaign. We have already invested 5 months of preproduction and 12 thousand into the project. That level of commitment was needed to really understand the budget and clearly we are passionate about the project. To raise this enormous sum of money we need the people that are inspired by the project to participate by helping us connect with as many people as possible.

Of course it is not simply raising the funds that will confront us. When this kickstarter is successful, a whole new set of challenges open up. Directing a project of this size with a crew of 40 people for so many days is a huge challenge, the rigging and certain ambitious set pieces haven't been 100% figured out yet. Also with no real money in the budget to pay people, organizing the volunteers becomes a massive challenge. I have been here before though.

A few years back in Milan, I was invited to design and fabricate what was then the worlds largest LED light. What's more it was made from industrial waste. I had six days to do it and take a look at what we accomplished. ( http://bit.ly/18NTO4J ), Before that in 2006 I decided to build a 36 foot long barge and live on it for as long as possible, in a matter of days and again with a crew of great volunteers we build the boat. It housed at least 200 people, and traveled over 500 miles on the Susquehanna river before being spirited to sea by the floods in 2011 ( http://bit.ly/16STyyP ). Before that in 2004 I was given 20,000 and one month to prepare for a 5 month long documentary production in Chile. I was able to round up the equipment, the crew, invent/build portable systems and arrive in Chile 28 days later ready to film. That project turned into the largest oral history collection of the "New Song Movement" yet compiled and a good film to! This ( http://bit.ly/1bAvaFO ) is a 20 min piece made to celebrate out first year of production. The last project I did on the scale of this Living Tin was probably my studio. With no experience in construction or design, and against the advice of everyone I relied on for advise I transformed a 4000 sqft utterly trashed and abandoned warehouse into the multi media work/live collective that it is today. ( http://bit.ly/1b5HAWW )

The most important detail about all those projects is that I did them with the help of some great people. I have a knack for surrounding myself with smart and able people that share my vision and trust my leadership. I am passionate about the things that I do. Please help us spread the word. Link to us on your favorite blogs, tell you journalist friends about it. Thank you for taking the time to review this project.

Kellam
