Latest Updates from Our Project:

BackerKit survey and News!
7 months ago – Fri, Mar 31, 2017 at 12:02:12 AM

Hello! To The Beautiful People of The Jollylook Community!

We hope all is well! Thank you for making Jollylook a reality! A few things need to happen before we can kick off production and fulfillment. It's been a while since our last update and we can't wait to tell you all the news:

1. Backerkit survey!

We are excited to announce that we have transferred all Backer pledges to our pledge management tool, BackerKit.

You should receive an email from BackerKit this week with a link to your account that includes all your Backer information in it. It will take a few days for all the emails to go out. Please be patient. (And don’t forget to check your spam folder.) It is important to respond to your survey since we need this information for fulfilling your rewards.

You do not need to create a BackerKit account to fill out your survey, just click on the survey link, fill it out, and you’re all good to go! You will be able to provide shipping information, and pledge for more “add-ons” if you'd like. You do not have access to this survey link yet, but it will be available soon via email!

We will be adding more "add-ons” like film and filters, and we will post about them in updates so you don't miss them.

You can update or modify your survey answers anytime before we begin shipping. Simply click on the same personalized email link and it will take you to BackerKit where you can modify your responses. We will be sure to let you know when we will "lock down" the survey (estimated for May 25 2017). One thing to note is that you must fill out the entire survey before we can ship your reward.

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you will be able to recover your survey here: jollylook.backerkit.com

If you use your Facebook login for your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey will be sent to the email you used for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you would prefer to use, please contact support at jollylook.backerkit.com/faq and we'll get you sorted out!

2. Pre-production:

We have partnered with an experienced manufacturing agency in Shenzhen, China. Together we will go from the production of several samples to series manufacturing. We've been working intensely together over the past month to get all of the parts and drawings finalized for production in China. Together we studied and selected several suppliers for each category, asked them for prices / print runs / production time for samples / batches / samples. Our next step will be visiting Shenzhen in two weeks from now, we will see the manufacturers production opportunities, and once the first samples are assembled we will negotiate and lock down the partners to start the production. We will keep you updated and share with you more info and pictures as soon we get to China.

3. Stretch goals prototypes:

We only showed drawings of the stretch goals earlier, and we are sure you are curious what the stretch goals will look like, here is how the first prototypes look like:

Stretch Goal #1 - Jollylook plate for tripod (3D printed prototype)
Stretch Goal #1 - Jollylook plate for tripod (3D printed prototype)

 

Stretch Goal #2 - Jollylook clip-on filter mount for the lens
Stretch Goal #2 - Jollylook clip-on filter mount for the lens

We are still working on Stretch Goal #3 - Jollylook Neck Strap, and we will show it to you in the next update. The good news is - once it is ready - it will be available as an add-on on Backerkit.

4. Instax mini monochrome film.

Many of you have asked for the choice of monochrome film. We are excited to say that you will be able to choose Instax mini monochrome film to come with your Jollylook (one cartridge per camera) with an extra fee of 3$ only in our Backerkit survey.

5. For those who missed the campaign:

We received so many messages and emails from people who missed the Jollylook campaign, but still wanted to support Jollylook. We have good news - we launched a pre-order store on Backerkit (with delivery in August 2017): https://jollylook.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders

The pre-order store will be updated with more items and "add-ons" as soon as they are ready for pre-order.

We will keep you updated.

THANK YOU!

Untill next time,

The Jollylook Team.

We would like to once again say THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH for your support to Jollylook!

Also, we have had a chat with the amazing team over at ars-imago. We share a lot of passion for analog photography. They have an active LAB-BOX Kickstarter campaign - The first multi-format daylight-loading film tank. So please check them out and spread the love for film photography!

We will be back soon with updates on fulfillment and we will be sharing with you the process of manufacturing Jollylook.

HELLO Dear Jollylook community!

With only 24 hours left, we’re thrilled to be 2435% funded!

Thank you for your Massive support of Jollylook.

The Jollylook community is amazing. We are so appreciative of all of your great ideas and words of support. It doesn't matter whether you pledged $1 or $1499, whether you shared with a few friends or with hundreds of friends. Over the past month, you've pledged to help us make Jollylook a reality and bring to life cardboard analog photography! We are so excited!

Because of You - children from all around the world will be able to learn the basics of analog photography, analog photographers will enjoy taking photos with Jollylook and so many professionals will create amazing analog images!

What is next:

We are now in the process of choosing the suppliers and preparing for mass production of Jollylook. We will keep you updated throughout the whole manufacturing and fulfillment process.

About a month after the campaign ends, we'll be sending you a survey via Backerkit, in which you will be able to provide your delivery address and choose add-ons.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Until next time,

The Jollylook Team.
