Crowdfunding for a German Steampunk Project

Dear Readers,

I think a lot of you know the crowdfunding platform kickstarter.
But there are also crowdfunding platforms in other countries.
Today I would like to inform you about a great project in Germany - for all people interested in steampunk - presented on the crowdfunding platform startnext

The steampunk scene in Germany is growing. More than 1500 people are now member of the most interactive community Rauchersalon. But that is a topic on its own.

Today I want to talk about an ambitious project:
The illustrated documentation of Steampunk Lifestyle in Germany.

I have had the pleasure to meet the inspirational gentlemen Mr. Olaf Hobbyt Heitmann. He told me in detail about his project. I found it that impressive, that I promised him to post about his project even I know that only part of my readership speak and understand German.

Mr. Hobbyt Heitmann explain his project in the following exquisite silent movie video. This time all subtitles are in German. An English version is in process.

Mr. Olaf Heitmann is a real gentlemen. He has been so kind to let me know that in the meantime the English version of the video is available too! I did not check. It seems I did not fully recover yet ...

So, if you would like to spare some change, or to support the project as a fan then visit the
Steampunk Lifestyle Project (German)
Steampunk Lifestyle Project (English)
on Startnext.

Of course you find Mr. Olaf Hobbyt Heitmann and his Steampunk Lifestyle Project on Facebook.

Hi Rosalie,
