CHROME 2018 - What it will be, if you make it come true:
The pictures we show you here at the project page, are the first steps into the world of "CHROME". A world of breathtaking pictorial compositions, artistic ideas and the impressive elegance of pole dancing. These pictures give you a small insight of what we want to create until the end of this year.
Our plan is to create pictorial stories to show you pole dance from the most different perspectives of real life and augmented reality.
To reach a higher level (of fame), we want to recruit famous and well known pole dancers for the pictures. We have already confirmations from some of our favourite models who will support the project:
Nele Sehrt, the 'Grande Dame' of Poledance and Germany's first pole coach as well as instructor for Pole & Tease coaches and Guinness World Record holder in 'Inverted Pole Climbing'.
Performer and jury member of national and international championships (national, including Russia 2010, Poland 2011, Croatia 2011, Czech Republic 2014 and internationally, among others Moscow 2011, Zagreb 2014 and Prague 2014), has traveled the world and has made popular the dance acrobatics on the pole in Germany, Austria and Switzerland with numerous TV and press releases.
Jasmine Kuehne a.k.a. JazzyK
Jazzy K is a pole dance instructor and performer based in Zurich, Switzerland. She is regularly teaching at Gravity Arts Dance Center.
As teaching is her passion, it's an honor for her to also work for the pole instructor education program XPERT Pole & Aerial Fitness, teaching all over Europe and the UK.

And we promise: "The higher the realised level of funding, the higher the number of models, the greater the details and the complexity of the sets." With your support we can develop our creativity and transform the wildest ideas into practice.
Why a printed calendar?
The internet has made it possible to enjoy many things on our computers and mobile phones; but there are still some things that cannot be replicated on a computer screen.
The printed "CHROME" fine art calendar will resonate with you in a deeper, more personal way.
That´s why "CHROME" will not be available as a digital download. It is a personal investment by taking the time to turn the pages by hand and appreciate the tactile nature of the medium. Time moves differently as you pause to admire the details and subplots in an image that you might have otherwise quickly scrolled down on a screen.
1. The Chrome Pole Dance Calendar
You will get the "CHROME" fine art calendar, printed double sided on heavy paper in high quality. The backside of each page will be printed without the calendar dates. So you could easily frame your favourite pictures or use it as a poster. To ensure the possibility of exploring story which every single image contains we decided to print the calendar in DIN A2 (that’s 16.54 x 23.39 inches).
2. Become a named supporter, printed in every calendar worldwide!
You could be an official named supporter! Your name and your country of origin will be printed on the supporters' page in every printed version of the calendar. Attention: Only for private persons!
3. Chrome Pole Dance Card "Titlecard"
You'll get a big postcard in 12,5x23 cm (5x9 inch), with the printed campaign title picture of Mareike and their family. We'll send the postcard in an envelope to you.
4. Printed Chrome Pole Dance Cards Set
You'll receive an envelope with 12 printed postcards (12,5x23cm / 5x9 inches), that is, each picture we'll produce for the calendar, on a single postcard.
5. Official Sponsors Package
Today pole dance is a permanently growing community. So the "Chrome Project" will not be a "one-day fly". We're looking forward to continue the project, as long as someone is dancing at a pole! So we hope to find support and interest also in a commercial way.
With this reward, you could be one of max. 8 official sponsors for the CHROME POLEDANCE PROJECT!
1) Your logo will be printed at the partner & sponsors page in the calendar. If you take 2 sponsors-packs, your logo will be printed twice as large ... and so on...
2) You will be listed as an official sponsor on the chrome facebook fanpage.
3) You will also receive 10 printed calendars!
Looking for business relationships
After arriving the funding goal we plan to make the "Chome Pole Dance Calendar" available worldwide. That´s why we are looking for worldwide business relationships to build an efficient shipping and selling network. We are happy about every suggestion.
The production costs
The past 2 years we developed a smal idea to the production plan and calculated the project carefully. Finally we frightened as we computed the final cost, but there is no doubt that our calculation has no mistakes!
Harry & Ben have over 10 years expirience in advertisment photography and printing. So we know very well what we have to do and what we have to pay for. There are many factors like:
- cost of printing a high quality calendar,
- recruiting models,
- set scouting,
- make up,
- traveling expenses for a minimum of 4000 km across Europe,
- packaging and delivery.
Taxes and charges alone account for more than 27% of the budget. In addition, due to the kickstarter rules we have to add shipping costs of over 8.500, - EUR.
We are sure that our calculated budget is the minimum we need to fulfill what we promise you!
The Timeline - if our dream comes true:
1. Model recruiting and scheduling of photoshootings
We´ll start with the recruiting and set scouting as soon as we have reached our goal. Then we'll start to make the appointments for the shootings.
- This should be finished until the end of march 2017.
2. Travel - Shoot - Sleep - Repeat ;o)
Now we'll go on tour to make our photoshootings for the calendar!!!
- This should be finished until April till July 2017.
3. Postproduction and Printing
Photoretouching, printdesign, proofing, controlling, printing, packaging - the final steps of producing the CHROME CALENDAR and postcards.
- This should be finished until August 2017
4. Delivery - CHROME CALENDAR will come to you!
At the same time as we deliver the rewards to you, we´ll start selling the calendar worldwide (through amazon for example).
- starts at the end of August 2017.
5. Let's have a Party? Maybe..., see the stretch goals
We will keep all backers informed via Kickstarter and through our social media / subscriber network about news and facts and the progress of ...(shootings, models, etc.....)
1. Stretch goal: arriving our funding goal:
We will launch an unlimited reward with shipping the calendar out of Europe. Until then, we hope that you understand that we must be sparing with the very expensive delivery to overseas.
2. Stretch goal 1000 printed Calenders:
Producing a backstage video about the development and the shootings of the CHROME Calendar.
3. Stretch goal 2000 printed Calenders:
Every backer is invited to our party. We made an unforgetable CHROME CALENDER release Party!

Risks and challenges
The CEO's of codiarts, Harry & Ben set-up the codiarts GbR Agency in 2008. We currently produce & distribute artworks and media worldwide.
Our fullfilment programme has been carefully planned so we are confident that we can keep our promises.
Please note that we can't give further details to the pole dancers which we'll recruit as models for our calendar. The recruiting process will depend on the budget which we can collect with this project. We already have very positive feedback and contact with some of our favourite models, so we see no risks in recruiting further models.
If there are any significant design changes or any unforeseen complications we will keep all backers informed via Kickstarter and through our social media /subscriber network.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
