An unfortunate event.
It has been brought to my attention by peers and legal professionals that if I am to continue with this project I may have legal action taken against me due to copyright infringement.
As this is a project, and not a business, and with being a recent graduate I am in no position to be able to undertake this risk. Due to this I regrettably will be cancelling the funding for 'The 120 Pinhole Project'
Though, there is no way I'm giving up on this project! I have been overwhelmed by your support so far, and have had some wonderful community and youth projects based reach out to me through Kickstarter.
I don't want to let don't anyone down who has supported me so far, or allow two years or work go to waste so I have started working on a new camera. It will contain the same internal mechanism, but the body will be uniquely my design. The camera will still work as a pinhole camera, and you will still be able to construct it at home.
I truly hope I can count on your continued support.
I'm working with a fantastic screen-printer to help get the prototype up and running and I hope to have the project as a new Kickstarter within the next 30 days.
I'm going to be working doubly as hard to ensure that the new project will have same delivery date as 'The 120 Pinhole Project'- November 2013.
As a thank-you for your continued support I will raise the £25 reward amount to 200 limit, rather than the previous 150.
I'm also going to translate the new design into a downloadable 35mm net for all backers so you can made a version at home whilst you are waiting for you camera to arrive in the mail.
I hope you all accept my apologies- I believe it's vital to have complete transparency on Kickstarter with everyone who has either backed or is interested in my project.
I will be documenting the progress of making the new camera at - kickstarterpinholediary.tumblr.com so please check it out to continue following the journey.
If you have any questions, or would like to be personally notified when the new project is available please drop me a line at - firstname.lastname@example.org. Though, I will also be using this page as a means of communication.
