I need help funding a retrospective documentary about the making of the1986 BMX film "RAD," which is 25 years old this year.
My name is Marc Dewey and I am creating a retrospective documentary on the cult-classic 1986 BMX film “Rad.” I have already spent several hundred dollars of my own money to film the first round of interviews (including Bill Allen, Martin Aparijo, Eddie Fiola, Kevin Hull, Danny Millwee, Mike Miranda, Jeremy Moser and Matt Moser) and I’ve got some great stories to share. Now I am in need of more funds so I can afford to film more interviews with the rest of the cast and crew. The money would mainly cover travel costs, and possibly be used for music/film licensing rights as well. My goal is to have something complete to share at the 25th Anniversary Celebration of the film in Cochrane, Alberta this coming summer.This is a last-ditch effort to raise the money, because without it there is no chance I'll have it done by then on my own!
As an alternative funding option, I've also created a Web Store to sell custom Rad-themed T-shirts. All of this money goes toward the film as well. You will also see items from this store as backer rewards on here.
Also - if you were involved with the making of the film please contact me, via the link to the right. I would also like to get other past/present Pro BMX riders involved to give their opinions about Rad as well.
