Hello, Beautiful People of The Jollylook Community!
Thank you for backing Jollylook!
Straight to the news:
It turned out that we were too optimistic, after solving all the problems with production and setting it up, we don’t have enough money to buy film and continue shipping rewards in the planned quantities and time.
Although we were forced, as we wrote earlier, to sell some of the cameras, sales are not going as well as expected and do not provide sufficient funds.
Continuing to produce cameras and paying the production personnel is expensive. Today, after all what we went through, we are in a situation where we need to sell two cameras in order to be able to ship one reward to you, our backers. We really really really need your support and patience once again.
Many of our backers are angry and upset, and we can understand that, but this is Kickstarter. Making something new is always hard. Some projects will stall or change direction. Many will go on to impact the world in ways both small and large. When you back a project, you’re not buying something that already exists. You’re supporting a creator’s right to try to make that thing—and agreeing to go along for the ride. Our ride has been and still is very bumpy, but we won't give up.
We will be sending rewards in small batches every two weeks. The sooner we will be able to sell more cameras, the sooner we will be able to ship all the rewards. It is hard to predict how things will go at this moment.
We will continue to work very hard to fulfil our obligationsand will keep you informed.
All of you will receive your rewards!
We thank you for your patience and for sharing your emotions, even when some of you are unhappy with us.
Without you, this project would not be possible, and because of you, it is still going on and will succeed.
We will keep you updated on our progress.
Until next time,
The Jollylook team.
