Campaign Description

Sometimes called Selfie Studios or Selfie Museums, Sid's Selfie World will provide unique and interesting photo opportunities for the general public to take pictures of themselves, friends and family. Located in the Heart of Edmonton's Vibrant Old Strathcona area, visitors will have fun (and seriously after a year of Covid-19 Restrictions who couldn't use a little fun) in a 2000 square foot facility dedicated to the Selfie. Of course, great pictures need great lighting and that is where our BoostR friends can help. We are hoping to raise $10,000.00 to illuminate all of the scene spaces with SoftBox Continuous Studio Lighting Kits. So, please help my family entertain yours at Sid's Selfie World.

Fun, Family and Friends - the Pandemic Cure

Hi. I am Sidney Ortlieb, Founder and CEO of Sid's Selfie World. Do you love to hang out with friends and family? Do you have a camera phone or a real camera? Have you had a birthday in the past 12 months? Are you tired of endless Covid restrictions and can't wait to have some fun again? Well, if you said "yes" to any of the above, then Sid's Selfie World is just what the doctor ordered. Ok, that and a vaccine.

 

What is Sid's Selfie World?

We will have a combination of interesting backdrops and more elaborate scenes or theatrical sets. All of us in the family have already picked out our favorites and can’t wait to share them with all of you. In the video we had a really simple backdrop where we introduced a newspaper covered wall and held a newspaper prop. Unless you have a 3D IMAX camera, your camera will only see newspaper as a flat image. You can use your imagination to hide some of yourself and other objects while revealing other parts to the camera for entertaining effects. Still not sure what I mean? To take a look at what you could see, just Google "selfie museum photos" and behold a world of fun.

Where and When

Sid's Selfie World will be located at 10336 - 82 (Whyte) Avenue, in the Heart of Edmonton's always colourful and interesting Old Strathcona district. Right across the street from the Princess Theatre, backing onto the Varscona Theatre, a few steps from the Farmer's Market and the Fringe Theatre Complex, Sid's Selfie World is at the intersection of Art, Photography, Entertainment and Fun. As you can tell from our video, we still have a lot of work to do, but that's Ok. We expect to open this Fall about the same time that Covid restrictions will be relaxed. Good things come to those who wait.

Is Sid a real person?

Let me pinch myself just to be sure. Yup.  I'm real alright. I am also passionate about acting, photography, modelling and dance. Why run around town looking for cool backdrops for your selfies only to run into bad weather, poor lighting and somebody telling you this is private property. At Sid's Selfie World, the climate is controlled, our BoostR friends are helping us with studio quality lighting and you are a welcome guest. I look forward to meeting you at Sid’s Selfie World.

Why Crowd Funding and Rewards

The early bird gets the worm. Yuk. We have way better rewards than worms and they are only available to our Early Bird BoostR friends. If you are kind enough to support us now, then you deserve our best deal and ATB’s Crowd Funding Platform is a great way to say Hi to as many new friends as possible. You will receive a certificate in the mail to confirm the reward that you selected, and when we open, your Admissions and reward items will be waiting for your visit. We really appreciate ATB’s help, and your support to bring the best possible Selfie experience to Edmontonians and Visitors to our great City. See you at Sid’s Selfie World.
