Kickstart Some Retro Projects

Being a project starter, business owner and overall creative person, I like to lend a hand to other hopeful endeavors whenever possible. Here are two projects from the entrepreneurial fundraising site, Kickstarter, filled with retro flare that I would love to see blossom and come to life.  One is a hard-cover book about two of my favorite subjects, Halloween and pin-ups featuring photography by amazing artists such as Miss Missy. And the other is an independent film set in the 1940s with a guest feature from the beautiful Mrs. Bella. Both projects have a lot of heart, soul and retro flavor.

Halloween and Spook Pinups - Book
Here’s what they have to say about their project:

Combining commissioned and submitted photography, we will blend cheesecake pinups and cheesy costumes, horror and beauty, vampires and zombies, ghosts, ghouls, and more devil-may-care ladies of darkness and delight! We are breaking the mold of ultra-glossy, paper back books that you keep hidden under your bed. We are creating something vividly beautiful that will be richly printed on thick, luscious paper and hardbound. Our book will be an 8.5" x 11" book so richly detailed, it becomes a part of your annual Halloween decorations. We will be exploring the range of Halloween from cheesy to gore. We will be exploring the range of pinups from colorful seamless backdrops to detailed sets to outdoor scenes.
