Clint O’Connor was featured in Kickstarted’s Funded Friday, Episode 6!
“Pinhole, Printed creator and crowdfunding enthusiast, Clint O’Connor joined us for a Funded Friday conversation. His project is unique in that he not only had major success from the get-go, but also limited his potential upside. He didn’t want to sell more cameras than he knew he could deliver in a timely manner.”
I’ve been busy the last couple of days finalizing the design for printing. Being funded early has enabled me to take the risk of going ahead and ordering all the parts and materials to print your cameras. I’m very happy with the current state of progress. All of the positive comments and press I have been getting has really energized me – a big thank you to my backers!
I’m ordering the film now to start shooting test photographs and preparing the exposure tables.
Here’s a new one: – instead of the plain rubber band, everyone will get a fat wide blue rubber band imprinted with the “Pinhole” logo and “www.pinholeprinted.com”.
While I’m on the subject – why the rubber band? It started with holding the front of my original 6×16 panoramic pinhole camera on, and has become a trademark feature of many of my cameras. The rubber band serves a dual purpose – it’s a reminder that you have or don’t have film in the camera, and it is insurance against accidentally popping the top.
Moving on, I’m currently taking sun track photos with the ND filters in Stretch #1 and hope to have some photos in a few days (it takes a full day for each using 2, 3, and 4 filters).
And, finally, by popular demand from several backers, I am adding T-shirts for those of you who like to wear their passion, or at least something cool.
The T-shirts are $20 and $25 internationally (includes shipping) – simply add this amount to your pledge for each t-shirt. If you pledged a kit or camera, I will wrap your kit or camera in the t-shirt as a substitute for the packing material (think eco-friendly). They will ship at the same time as your reward level.
