http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/carlosimpson/you-and-your-rights

The idea is simple, publish this 750 pages Book explaining Identity and Your Rights with the use of Typography and Symbols…

YOU-AND-YOUR-RIGHTS

Imagine what the World would be without identity and what your mind would do or what would be your reaction around the concept of someone trying to persuade you the idea of Identity.

16 Pages of 750p.16 Pages of 750p.

I spent all my life trying to understand Identity, what identity is and the relation with the human rights. I have realized that this is a very complex concept. I had many question, starting from:

What is identity and what are the principles of Identity?

Why is identity so important?

How do we know the rights of our Identity?

How are Identities formed?

Then I have started looking at many different ways in which Identity can be categorized.

With You and Your Rights – the Book

– I want to provide a clear definition of Law of Identity.

– The Book is a social structure in terms of Gender, Class and Nation which provide Law information with strong Typography, Illustration and use of Signs to make the language and the message easy, fun and accessible to everyone of all ages, culture or race.

In 1979 You And Your Rights was published for the first time, since then the Book was forgotten. In 2011 Awarded by Neville Brody, D&AD and British Book and Design Awards as the Best Student Book of the Year in United Kingdom. In 2013 just with your help the Book can be published. Giving life, new form and contemporary language. The New edition can be now accessible to anyone and easy to understand it. Inspiring, creative and communicative, a Book made specially for You.

Understanding the meaning of the text involves taking on an appropriate ideological identity.

————————————————————————————————–

I have started this project in 2007 with which I have devoted my entire University degree and since then I am spending 24 hours by 24 hours working in You and Your Rights researching and putting everything together and solid from ideas and concepts .

Being a Graphic Designer specialized in type and print, I want to create a Unique Book that not only stay on the shelf spruce as simple piece of decoration but a document type Dictionary key to Law and Identity.

The ambition of this project is to create a Masterpiece with strong use of Typography and Unique Visual style. The book will take the audience to reflect on today´s Identity and copyright.

This is a very unique book based on it´s first edition 1979 I have decided to redesign with contemporary language to make it accessible to everyone, all age and race. A new visual reading experience to such an significant and influential book.

The Squatch Watchers Kickstarter!

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/827962922/squatch-watchers

A comedic web series about the hunt for Bigfoot. Guest starring Chuck Testa and Superman writer Scott Lobdell.

What is Squatch Watchers?

Squatch Watchers is a web series about a team of Bigfoot believers that are searching for the mysterious and elusive beast.

So, wait? Is this fictional?

No! The Squatch Watchers are comprised of real people and the series will document our search for Bigfoot. The first season will comprise of five episodes with a running time of around ten minutes each. Each episode begins with the team arriving in a new area of California and extensively searching it for any sign of Sasquatch. Local residents will be interviewed; scientists will be consulted to ensure the validity of this search. No rock will be left undisturbed until we declare an area is free of any Bigfoot.

Why are you looking for Bigfoot? Aren’t there TV Shows that do that?

We’re all big believers in Bigfoot. Sadly, television is doing a poor job of actually performing a real search. Most “monster” shows will show up in an area, and then leave that area without finding anything or even making any determination at all! WE WILL NEVER DO THAT.

We’re not a television show that wants to keep the mystery going. We want to solve it. Now, this doesn’t mean that the show will be boring. No sir! We are internet comedians after all. Each episode will be the perfect 50/50 mixture of comedy and actual Bigfoot hunting.

Who the heck are you guys?

We already told you. We’re the Squatch Watchers!

Be more specific!

The Squatch Watchers are made up of Gene Shaw, Jerry Ahern, Jason Inman and Jen Trani.

Jason and Gene will be co-directing the series. Each has years of experience in film, internet and commercial production.

Jason currently produces, shoots and edits for Youtube comedy duo, Rhett & Link. He also creates videos on his own YouTube channel (Jawiin) which has over 2.5 million views collectively.

Gene is no slouch either. He has over a decade of experience in graphic design and illustration. His other credits include several AAA video games, best selling iPhone/iPad and Android apps and feature film editing and visual effects.

Jason and Gene are also no strangers to shooting in the woods. Check out The Walking Dead Christmas Special, a video they co-created that won Best Parody Video at the 2013 Geeky Awards.

Jason and Gene will also be helped out by the following:

Scott Lobdell – A world famous comic book writer who has written acclaimed runs onSuperman, X-Men, and Teen Titans. He has fallen in love with Bigfoot ever since writing about the creature in the pages of Alpha Flight.

Chuck Testa – The internet’s most famous taxidermist and Bigfoot believer. Chuck was named by Time Magazine one of 2011’s top internet memes. Most well known for telling people, “NOPE!”

Jen Trani – Brilliant musician and internet famous guitarist who has released multiple albums and played in such bands as Jen & Abby and Malin Akerman and the Mystikats. She wants to use music to aid in the search for Bigfoot.

Jerry Ahern – A comic book and Sasquatch lover who brings an enthusiastic and energetic drive to the search. Also the former host of the Cape Town Community Podcast.

Why do you need me?

The search for Bigfoot is actually a lot more difficult than it sounds. It’s not as simple as hopping in your car and beating on some trees, as some shows would have you believe.

In fact, a large portion of the budget is strictly for traveling expenses. We want to make sure that we can get to the areas that have the most reported sightings of our big hairy friend. For the first season, the search will be limited to the state of California. But for Season 2, we want to expand to some of the northern states like Oregon and Washington.

Wait, you’re already talking about Season 2?

Of course! Our quest to find the Squatch only ends when we find him. First, we document California squatches, then we broaden the search to find out where else this elusive beast is camping out.

We’ve put together the numbers and the budget we need is exactly the amount we are asking for. No more, no less. There are no line items for trips to Hawaii in this budget. That’s Season 4.

So humbly and on bended knee, we turn to you to help us fund our search for Bigfoot.

So what do I get for contributing?

Limited time reward! Recieve an Kickstarter exclusive Squatch Watcher Bigfoot Photo Evidence Scale!

Help Build Dog Houses for Rescued Wolf Dogs in Need of Shelter

The Dog House Building Project will ensure that each wolf at Loki Clan Wolf Refuge will be provided with stellar shelter.

 

 

 

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-build-dog-houses-for-rescued-wolf-dogs-in-need-of-shelter

WHO WE ARE: WE RENOVATE ANIMAL SHELTERS

WE ARE PROJECT PAWSITIVE! WE ARE A 501c3, non-profit – AND – we are a group of wicked good friends (a wolf pack oursleves!) who dedicate their time and SKILLS to RENOVATING animal rescues in DESPERATE need. You know, like EXTREME HOME MAKEOVER for ANIMAL SHELTERS! Learn more about us. All donations are 100% tax deductible.

WHO WE ARE HELPING: A WOLF REFUGE

The Issue: The Project Pawsitive Team’s next mission is at a wolf dog rescue in Conway, NH called the Loki Clan Wolf Refuge. Over the past 20 years, the Loki Clan Dog Refuge has rescued countless abandoned, neglected, abused, and unwanted wolf dogs. It is a lifelong home to wolf dogs that would otherwise face certain euthanasia. They are condemned by law and the refuge is indispensable for their conservation and protection.

LogoThe Dog House Building Project will ensure that each animal at Loki Clan Wolf Refuge will be provided their own shelter. There are 25 packs of wolf dogs currently on 70 acres of land. Replacement of the old, inadequate dog houses and replacing them with strong, secure, and safe dog houses means that these beautiful animals will be also be secure and safe. These dog houses are needed for the safety and well-being of these amazing creatures that must live out their lives in a protected environment like the Loki Clan Wolf Refuge.

Baby Wolves

HOW YOUR SUPPORT HELPS:

The Campaign: All donations go directly to funding Project Pawsitive’s effort to coordinate their part in the project, build as many dog house kits off-site as possible and travel to the refuge’s location to assemble. In addition, your donation helps Project Pawsitive film and produce a webisode to bring greater awareness to the rescue they are helping. This webisode provides great detail about the Loki Clan and how people can support their efforts to save wolf dogs in jeopardy. This additional effort drives greater awareness, donations, and volunteers to the causes Project Pawsitive supports.

MORE ABOUT OUR ANIMAL SHELTER RENOVATION JOURNEY:

Karate KidAfter many hours of hard, dirty work, clearing out debris and installing new flooring at the Salem Animal Rescue League, Project Pawsitive Foundation president Jill Sullivan Grueter looked at her team’s completed project with pride. “I could picture the rescue getting more people in to adopt because the place looked clean. It looked safe,” she gushed in a YouTube chronicle of the project, “It was an awesome feeling.” Animal shelters devote themselves to caring for neglected animals until they can be placed into loving homes, but a lack of funding or natural disasters can leave facilities damaged and potentially unsafe. That’s where the construction experts and business professionals of the Project Pawsitive Foundationteam come in, giving their time and abilities to help shelters stay open and continue their work of saving animals in need. Project Pawsitive Foundation relies on donations and sponsorships, and strives to renovate four or more animal rescues each year.

Slender Man: Plush Toy – Kickstarter

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1336904045/slender-man-plush-toy

Slender Man is a 32″ plush created with the finest fabrics and materials. He is soft, yet durable toy.



Slender Man is a soft plush doll created with the finest fabrics and materials. He is soft, yet durable toy.

My two oldest girls came up with the idea for the Slender Man doll. I was working on another series of monster figure drawings when my girls ran into the studio proclaiming, “We need to make a huge, soft, creepy, Slender Man doll!” The idea was born. The three of us worked up a three foot sketch together to figure out just how tall and skinny he should be. Only four weeks later they were able to hold the finished doll in their tiny hands.

My youngest daughter adores him, (pictured below) referring to him as “my quiet friend who does not speak.”

Nevermore’s 32″ Slender Man toy is being produced with the permission of Victor Surge; the originator and man responsible for the initial photographs and writing behind Slender Man.

PRINT #1 “Come to Me”

Artist: Santiago Germano

PRINT #2 “Search Party”

Artist: Denae Wilkowski

Detail of “Search Party.”

PRINT #3 “I’ve got your dolly”

Artist: Brenden Wilson

There are a limited number of 11 x 14″ Slender Man illustrations being offered with the doll as well as individually. Each print is limited to 30 and will be signed and numbered by the artist.

Slender Man (a.k.a Slenderman) is a mythical creature often depicted as a tall, thin figure wearing a black suit and a blank face. According to the legend, he can stretch or shorten his arms at will and has tentacle-like appendages protruding from his back. Depending on the interpretations of the myth, the creature may cause memory loss, insomnia, paranoia, coughing fits (nicknamed “slendersickness”), photograph/video distortions and can teleport at will.

On June 8th, 2009, a “’paranormal pictures” photoshop contest was launched on the Something Awful (SA) Forums.[1] The contest required participants to turn ordinary photographs into creepy-looking images through digital manipulation and then pass them on as authentic photographs on a number of paranormal forums. Something Awful users soon began sharing their faux-paranormal creations with layered images of ghosts and other anomalies, usually accompanied by a fabricated witness account to make them more convincing. On June 10th, SA user Victor Surge posted two black and white photographs of unnamed children with a short description of “Slender Man” as a mysterious creature who stalked children.

“We didn’t want to go, we didn’t want to kill them, but its persistent silence and outstretched arms horrified and comforted us at the same time…” – 1983, photographer unknown, presumed dead.

One of two recovered photographs from the Stirling City Library blaze. Notable for being taken the day which fourteen children vanished and for what is referred to as “The Slender Man”. Deformities cited as film defects by officials. Fire at library occurred one week later. Actual photograph confiscated as evidence. – 1986, photographer: Mary Thomas, missing since June 13th, 1986.

BALLON: A Short Film #kickstarter

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aostrander/ballon-a-short-film

A ballerina caught in the cycle of partying and cocaine-fueled rehearsals must confront her addiction when she crumbles at an audition.

THE FILM

Ballon allows the audience a glimpse into Marin’s chaotic cycle of partying and professionalism, spanning a 24 hour period. Striving for perfection but caught in a self-destructive pattern of habits, she feels that her life can only operate in a heightened mode. When we meet Marin, cocaine is the center of her universe — the thing that gets her through all-day rehearsals and all-night benders. And it’s killing her. Marin uses the drug as a driving force through her day, until she reaches a breaking point during the audition of a lifetime. Marin’s ballet company is filled with young women who have admired Marin for years, so her embarrissing crash resonates with the group. Only Emily, a fresh-faced dancer new to this world, has the courage to confront Marin and offer her a lifeline. Marin must decide if she’s ready to be honest and look at what her life has become. Making a change will mean leaving behind the life — and the dream — that she knows.

In this heavily stylistic film, you’ll be swept into the emotional world of the dance floor, both in a nightclub and within a ballet company’s walls. The juxtaposition of the music and ambiance of the two spaces will visually stimulate the audience, and allow you to live in the moment with Marin.

Ballon will be entertaining, emotionally engaging, and a piece that sheds light on the dangers of demanding too much of oneself. Inspired by her own observations in the dance world, director Alexis O. Korycinski brought the idea to writer Julia Cox who immediately responded to the concept and penned the piece. Together, they bring you the journey of one broken woman’s path to self-examination. The creative and production team has backgrounds in film, theatre, and dance, and Ballon is a labor of love they are proud to share.

Did we mention there’s an underwater dance sequence?!

Relevé (Here’s Where You Come In)

Whether you are a dancer, dance enthusiast, or someone who’s eyes get a bit wider after seeing an eloquent dance, WE WANT YOU! We welcome each and every one of you to the Ballon Family with open arms! We are creating a community eager to make a change. A change for self-awareness. A change within the dance community. A change for young people demanding beyond their means.

Your support on this project will help us build Marin’s chaotic world.

Check out our Rewards section for our rad kickbacks!!

REWARD EXAMPLES:

Private Instagram Access:

For $10 you will have access to the private Instagram where you will see photos from the cast and crew.

HEADSHOTS:

For $500 (only 20 available) you will receive a private headshot session (does not include hair and makeup) in Los Angeles with the director. This must be redeemed within one year, and you’ll need to provide your own travel to Los Angeles and accommodations once you’re here. Please see examples below.

Original artwork:

Thaddeus T. Chapman will paint original paintings inspired by Ballon for the $5000 and $10,000 Rewards. Please see examples of his work below.

Thaddeus T Chapman has been a professional painter based in Central New York since 2000. In 2012, he relocated to the Central Coast of California.

His paintings are created using gouache on rice paper—a technique that utilizes layers of the heavier, more opaque water-based paint on thin rice paper creating works with greater reflective qualities. “I use the techniques of abstract expressionism and apply them to my figurative work” says Thaddeus, who describes his style as figurative abstraction. Chapman utilizes reference photos of his subjects, which he uses to develop drawings. Although he considers himself a portrait painter, his works vary from landscapes to abstracts and nudes. For more examples please visit his website:http://thaddeustchapman.com

Where Will The Money Go?

Every penny will go directly towards Ballon! We’ve got some work to do! Your support will lend itself towards –

  • costumes
  • hair & makeup (we have to get Shelby to look like a druggie!)
  • set
  • location fees & permits (because we want to do good by LA)
  • top notch filming equipment
  • food for cast & crew (“Please, sir, can I have some more?” Of course you can because we have plenty of food thanks to our donors!)
  • underwater gear (oh yeah — here’s our underwater scene plug again)
  • editing
  • paying for all of the fantastic kickbacks you’ll be receiving shortly!
  • and…. taxes! We must do right by Kickstarter. They’re good people.

THE RAINBOW-SPECTRAL DISPLAY CLOCK KICKSTARTER

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1070877600/rainbow-spectral-display-clock

The Reignlight Company is introducing the aesthetics of time as embodied in Rainbow-Spectral Display Clock.



CROSS-SECTION VIEW OF RSDCROSS-SECTION VIEW OF RSD

The Reignlight Company is introducing the aesthetics of time as embodied in Rainbow-Spectral Display clock. The actual aesthetic time is displayed upon architectural surface in the form of rainbow light shaped to show the dial face of the clock or actual rainbow image of it. The rainbow clock is a light projection device that creates live spectrum thus showing actual time.

The present version of the soft functional rainbow display clock requires improvements and optimization for greater quantities to manufacture, so money will be spend to cover cost of professional engineers that prepare the prototype for serial manufacturing. And to insure reasonably priced Rainbow Clock sufficient inventory of materials needed must be purchased. The total cost represents delivery of 6400 units on the market. The manufacturing process needs about 3 months of preparation, so first delivery will be made after 6th months from the date of funds available for this project. The Rainbow Clock represents modern notion of aesthetic time, that is why this project is very important for the advancement of civilization. The merit based assistance provided by Kickstarters is a noble approach to solving economic problems of our time, therefore inventors such myself truly appreciate your kind acts of good will.
