This Kickstarter is Meant to Fund the Creation of One Image


Most Kickstarters try to fund the creation of a series of images. But this latest project from Joe Giacomet is all for the creation of one image in the studio. Entitled, “Cash for Gold” it follows the story of an Olympic mascot that stuck around even after the Olympics are over. But now that no one is talking about it, the mascot decides to sell this gold medals.

Joe has scouted locations of various Cash for Gold stores (quick tip, they’re usually mafia owned) but hasn’t found quite the perfect look that he wanted. So in order to create the image, he’s planning on creating the scene in his studio. In turn, the Kickstarter is to fund the creation with props, set building, assistants being paid and all. And in return, he will offer a behind the scenes video of how he works.

Giacomet’s work actually has a very fine art feel to it and he’s won awards for his photography. He needs 1,500 quid (Euro) to get this done–which is honestly pennies when it comes to a major production shoot like this. Don’t take our word for it though. Listen to Joe after the jump.
