The 52 Week Project

There are 52 weeks in one year and my goal is to create a single photographic work for each week. The problem: my camera was stolen.

About

For those of you who don't know me, let me introduce myself

My name is Joshua Michael Williams. I am college student at UCF majoring in emerging arts media. Art has always been a huge part of my life, and without it I don't know where I would be. It's my passion and I fully intend to pursue a career in the field. 

This passion has taken me far with the 365 project, but it's time to step it up with round 2.
The 52 Weeks Project
What is it?
There are 52 weeks in a single year, and for each week I will create one photographic art work. This requires planning and sketching. Shooting the components to each photo. Processing and editing all components into a completed work that can then be presented and shared through Flickr, Facebook, and Instagram weekly. In the end, I will have 52 completed works in total.

So you may be thinking, okay this is interesting and all, but so what?

This project will not only help me grow as and artist and further expand my skills, but it will help towards my future career and will allow me to pursue my dreams. And use this to give back to you, the community, with art!

Why have I come to Kickstarter?
The biggest hold that is stopping me from starting this project, as well as what stopped The 365 Project, is that my camera was stolen along with a lens and other equipment. Equipment that is not affordable to a college student. I have been saving as much as I can budget, but I have found that at the rate I can save I won't be able to achieve my goal unless I win the lottery or if I save for a few years. I'd rather not take that chance. With your help I will be able to start and complete this project now so that I can grow as an artist before I actually get into the field, thus getting a jump start. With out your help this will not be possible. And in return I will do my best to reward you with art and rewards (which you can see to the left). The 52 Week Project may seem like a one person project, but truthfully you are just as important as I am. You are the audience to which I create for. And that is why I need you!


Help me fund my passion and my future
Thank you!

Risks and challenges

There a very little risk to this project which is a good thing! As far as fulfillment I am not worried a bit as this is my second project and I successfully fulfilled everyone's rewards in the past, and I am ready to do it again! If delays do occur, which I intend to prevent, then I will keep you, my backers, fully updated on the status of your fulfillment. Thank you!

As far risks aside from fulfillment, they are as follows:

Risk 1: One of the biggest risk being sick or too busy with school to shoot in a week

Solution: Fortunately there are many days in a week and I don't think that either of these factors should be a problem, but they are possible. So if on the off chance they do happen, I can always make up a day if necessary, but the goal is to not let that happen!

Risk 2: The other big risk is that this project goes unfinished. This happened to my last project due to my camera being stolen.

Solution: I am passionate about this project and fully intend to jump through any hoops that come my way to ensure it's completion. And this time around my camera is always going to be locked up in a safe location in my place of residence when it is not with me. I think that should prevent from being stolen, the issue that put a stop on my first project.

I am excited to start this project full-force!
Thank you all!
