He said the need to avoid such light-polluted areas sparked a discussion that led to SKYGLOW. Most of the money raised during the Kickstarter campaign will go to printing and shipping the books to an estimated 3,000 people, with the remainder budgeted for a trip through the United States and Canada to take pictures from various spots, including dark-sky preserves . With $55,000 raised as of Thursday (May 7), the project may not end up being funded, Mehmedinovic acknowledged. However, the founders said the effort will at least raise awareness about the effects of light pollution, which crowdfunding not only hinders skywatching but has also been traced to changes in animal activity. “Even if we don’t succeed,” Mehmedinovic said, “we still have something because of awareness of the issue. We have appealed directly to the people and not some middle person.” View gallery Galactic star trails spin over the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in 2015. A typical shoot will require five to seven cameras between the two photographers, a number called for due to the quantity of pictures taken. According to Mehmedinovic, a time lapse of just 10 to 20 seconds incorporates 250 to 450 images. A time-lapse project can easily fill up a 4-terabyte hard drive, enough space for a typical consumer to store hundreds of movies. Once the images are taken, they have to be processed and then exported through more software before being uploaded to the Web.

Current films being featured on Tugg in Australia include Frackman, You’re not You, Mr Turner and Reaching for the Moon. In 2014 the Australian box office generated $1.1 billion. But Australian films brought in just $26.1 million, according to Mr Doepel. Independent Cinemas Association of Australia president Adrianne Pecotic said crowd-sourcing programming was an innovative way to provide a “diverse slate” of films to cinemagoers. “Often mass marketing isn’t the best way to reach niche audiences,” she said.
