grain35_crumplepop_kickstarter

You can help CrumplePop build the ultimate film grain package by funding the production of Grain35 on Kickstarter. You'll also get the product once it's been finished!

A great piece of marketing from the guys at CrumplePop. They want to produce a 1080 and 4K set of real film grain called Grain35, but the shooting, lab costs and scanning is going to cost in the region of $15,000. So why not offer the chance to fund the production through Kickstarter and then distribute the product to backers when released?
