The best 41 minutes... ever.
That’s how we feel right now. Just a whole lot of wow, thank you, and awe.
We have been working on this new Filmmaker Collection for over six months. We had no idea that all our hard work would come down to 41 minutes, which is how long this project took to fund.
To everyone who is new to Moment, welcome. We are excited to have you join us.
To all our existing Moment customers, thank you for your continued support. You are the reason we get up every day and do what we love. It’s a lot of hard work, but you make it worth it.
Now begins the best phase of the journey….delivering a product you can be proud of.
Help Voting Up
If you aren’t familiar with Product Hunt, it’s a rad community for new products. If you have 5 seconds, we’d love your help to upvote our product.
Our friends Peter Mckinnon and Matti Haapoja dropped two vlog reviews with our new gear. Please give those guys some love, their support means the world to us.
The most questions we got today were about add-ons. As much as we love Kickstarter they make merchandising rather difficult. We aren’t sure why, but that just seems to be the way it is.
If you want gear beyond what is in the backer levels, you visit the “add-on section” on the page. Mentally select what you want, get out the calculator, add up the total, and place that on top of your backer level amount. You can also go edit your pledge amount if you've already backed the campaign and wanted add-ons.
Once the campaign is over, we will send out a survey where you can make your final selections (color, device type, etc) and even add more gear to your order if you'd like. The premise is we’ll try to make it easy so you have one order that ships at the same time.
We aren’t a fan of international taxes but we also aren’t one to get around the rules. When the campaign is over, we’ll send out your Kickstarter surveys where you will enter your shipping details. Depending on what you have in your cart and where it’s shipping, we will calculate the import fees required for that country and charge you for them.
A long story short but we tried a lot of combinations to charge this upfront with the pledge but it was just impossible. So we just want to give you a heads up now, if you hate import fees like us and want to bail on the project we don’t blame you. We’d rather you get mad at us now than when we’re ready to ship.
Let's roll through some quick production questions we got today…
Q: Do anamorphic lenses come with a lens cap?
Q: Which devices does the Anamorphic work on?
A: Any phone that has a Moment Photo Case or Battery Photo Case. Those would be iPhone 6/6+ (and newer), Galaxy S8/S8+ (and newer), Note 8, and Pixel (1 + 2). All of our lenses are universal, you just change the case to change the phone it works on.
When Does It Ship
Different from previous campaigns we already started manufacturing all of the products we debuted today. That means we are closer to shipping than any of our previous campaigns. But no matter how experienced you are, manufacturing is still very hard. It’s full of ups, downs, and “you’re not going to believe this happened” types of stories.
You have our promise that no matter what happens from here until shipping, we’ll keep you updated on our progress.
All we ask in return is you be kind as we work through the struggle of delivering a product that you’ll be proud of.
