    Dedicated FILM lunatic artist,

    22 of my 34 years I have been a darkroom hermit. Now it's time to come out of the shell and expose myself to the light. (I'm not a flasher.... natural light only)


    This is a project I'm launching. Please take a look and let me know what you think:
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...oto-palace-bus

    Here you can see some of my work and read a little of my ramblings about it: http://orlovphoto.com

    I love light - it briefly reflects from all in its path and it is from those reflections that we must pluck a perfect image.
    I am human - as is for all humans my fleeting nature is evident, therefore I chose to focus my lens on humanity. It's nature is fleeting like that of the light itself.
    I accept art as a virtue - the ability to see beauty is crucial if balance is to be achieved within an individual, hence I dedicate my life to education on that subject.

    I'll try to be as active of a contributor to APUG as I can be, for now, I am really worried about the funding for the project so I am going to spend a lot of time praying to St. Weegee and St. Penn along with St. Brady and St. Talbot - with their help this darkroom can be as monumental as it deserves to be.

    Anton.

    Looks like a cool project but I have one question:

    THIS PROJECT WILL ONLY BE FUNDED IF AT LEAST $16,000 IS PLEDGED BY WEDNESDAY FEB 1, 7:20PM EST.
    And if the funds are not raised by 1 Feb at 7:20pm, then what?

    This is the way Kickstarter works. They set a deadline and it's up to the candidate to beat the bushes to find enough backers by then. I really recommend this project to everyone on APUG. Anton is doing something to promote what we love.

    A word of caution to Anton... I was watching one project last year, and due to a glitch in the date or the time zone, the project closed a day earlier than the candidate expected.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Sounds neat, but again, what if the candidate doesn't meet the deadline?

    If he doesn't meet his target, then all is cancelled, including the pledges. As I understand it, your pledges are only used if the project meets its target.

    Yep.... If we don't meet the funding goal we get NOTHING at all - nobody's Amazon account gets charged and we start all over. THat is why I am so desperately pleading for not only personal sacrifice in terms of possible donations, but also to help spread the word by any means (this and other forums, facebook, personal blogs, etc.). Every bit helps and I really do think that this project is cool enough for the word to reach enough people and there to be enough support to make it happen.

    Frankly, if it doesn't go through it's gonna suck, but we'll do it. I have way too much as far as personal energy invested in it and I have to see it through. If it means selling my cameras so be it. I really don't want to do that though.... Plus, in all fairness us asking for $16.000 is us asking for 1/3 of what it's really going to cost, but we're willing to fund the rest somehow... At this point I can max out my savings by buying the following: water tanks,pump and heater, table top, batteries and electrical junk. THis is not including any of the connectors between all of the above, the labour, the VWs busses and their interiors, wood, etc, etc, etc.

    Thanks for welcoming me here folks. I do love film and hope that this project will expose more people to it's wonderful possibilities.

    ... all fingers crossed - we need a minor miracle....
