With 2017 coming to a close, it’s always fun seeing friends, family and creators alike posting their version of the year in review. It’s that perfect time to remember to take a few moments out from the busyness of life and look back at the year to revisit some memories.
It’s been a big year here at Cinetics, and there’s definitely been lots progress, lessons learned, new challenges and projects, and thankfully, successes! So with that, here’s our 2017 year in review.
🚀 Launched Lynx on Kickstarter
The year started with lots of excitement, clearly! March 7th we launched Lynx on Kickstarter and by May 5th we had successfully raised $123, 351 with 123 backers. We’re so grateful to the creative community for helping bring this product to life, and we’ve got some fun ideas, campaigns and contests coming in 2018 to further build upon this project.
🎬 Ran a Booth at SXSW
Being an Austin, TX based company has it’s perks for sure, one of those being SXSW taking place right in our home town of course. This year we decided to participate and get a booth to have our Lynx on display, join in on conversations with others in this industry, and explore some of the emerging brands and technologies in this space. What a fun week!
🎁 Launched the Creator Bundle Giveaway
This bundle giveaway campaign was definitely one of the funner one’s we did this year! We were fortunate enough to be able to collaborate with some amazing brands like Moment, Wooden Camera, and Peak Design to offer up some awesome gear to the creative community! If you missed out on this one, don’t worry! Plenty more giveaways to come in the new year.
🤝 Built a new Ambassador Program
Although this program is still being improved upon and adjusted as we go, we’re really excited with the direction it’s headed and the creatives we’ve been able to partner and collaborate with this year. We also have some very talented collaboraters coming up in the new year as well, so keep an eye out! If you’re interested in hearing more on this, check out our blog post here.
🥇 Lynx Wins Best Advanced Support System
We were so thrilled to hear that we were included in Videomaker’s “Best Products of the Year 2017”! Lynx took home the “Best Advanced Support System”, and you can check out the full round-up and review on their blog post here.
So that’s our year in review, highlighting a few key moments from the past 365 days. We’re very grateful for another year of being able to do what we love, exploring our creativity, empowering creators, and telling stories.
Now as we look forward to 2018 and what’s to come, we’re filled with excitement, optimism, and energy as we continue to explore new product ideas, new campaigns, new stories, all while building upon the Lynx and the community that has continued to support us along the way.
More updates on these things in the near future, so thanks for coming by and having a look, and keep an eye out for more blog updates soon.
We wish you a very happy new year, and nothing but success in 2018!
Team Cinetics 😊
