Alex Boniface interviewed “Image Maker” Kelly Angood following full backing of her recent Kickstarter project. With 33 days left, the £15,000 goal has already been achieved with 498 backers pledging over £19,000.

Angood built her first pinhole camera whilst studying an illustration degree over two years ago. Since then, interest in the original project from all over the world encouraged her to produce a downloadable version that anyone could print. Blogs picked up on the story with an overwhelming response.

“I knew the original camera had been on lots of blogs, but I never really expected the response I got from the download. But one of the best bits of that section of the project was having people's photos arrive in my inbox”, said Kelly Angood.

Having realised that there was a dedicated community, Angood reached out to Kickstarter to set out to produce the Videre, a medium format pinhole camera. Videre is simple, but elegant. Made from recycled die-cut card, it doesn’t have a lens, instead making use of a simple pinhole and medium format film.

The project has been fully funded, but there is still much to do before completion. The designs, suppliers and funding are in place, but Angood now has to work quickly to deliver if she is to meet her November deadline. Although over 7 months away, her Kickstarter experience has introduced her to a wide range of community projects and collaborations that she says are now in the pipeline.
