About this project
The time has finally come!
Over the last four years we’ve been designing a portable, powerful, rechargeable light to make you look great for video chats and selfies. It’s called Chatlight!
We’ve created a team with years of experience, as well as trusted contacts to make this happen successfully. The testing, research and development is done and our prototype is ready to go! However, we need your support so that we can pay for the molds needed to make this product a reality.
Production and manufacturing are in place, but we need your contribution to put us in motion!

Evolution Of Chatlight
Initial vision from 2008
Over 14 prototypes have been created to find the perfect balance of lighting and ease of use.
Henry Geddes began his career in photography at the International Center of Photography in New York City and gained his expertise by working with the largest and most fabled photo studios in the city. In 2001, this led to the launch of his own production facility, Splashlight Studios. With clients like Neiman Marcus, Calvin Klein, Barneys, Warner Brothers, Nike, Porsche, Macy’s, Vogue, Elle and W, Henry understands how important proper lighting is for presentation.
Splashlight Studios has grown significantly over the past 13 years and today successfully operates out of New York, Montreal and Miami, as one of the most recognized and respected names in the industry.
With over 15 years of experience as entrepreneur, business owner, and photographer, Henry understands the importance of lighting solutions and related products for good quality video chats.
In 2010, with designs for illumination devices he partnered with friend and online media specialist, Ian Shiell. Ian joined Henry to help manage the operations of bringing an ambitious product like Chatlight to life.
Over the last decade Ian developed the habit of starting companies, building up their presence online, growing brand recognition and selling companies—after which he moved to his next successful startup.
Risks and challenges
We are very aware of the fulfillment risks and challenges that can occur which is why we added 2 partners to our team who together have over 40 years of experience in bringing products to market. From concept, factory selection and quality control to distribution, we are assured that our promise to deliver will be more than accurate. Our fulfillment partners here in the USA are very experienced in the distribution of electric products such as the Chatlight and we feel very confident in their ability to make sure product is on time as promised.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
