Update: all rewards will now include a digital download of The Bonneville Project as well as the DVD!

The Bonneville Project is a documentary that follows the story of a a small independent motorcycle shop from Madison, Wisconsin in their attempt to break several land speed records.

The film has been completed and initial feedback from preview screenings have been extremely positive!  Now everyone wants to know "when can I get this on DVD?".

Of course we would be happy to oblige, but during our first shoot on the salt flats, unexpected weather canceled the event and we had to come back the next year to finish the film.  Unfortunately, this second trip ate up the funds we had set aside for the video release, but that's where you come in!

This Kickstarter is to raise the up-front cost of producing an initial run of "The Bonneville Project" on DVD.  In addition to covering these costs, the DVD's produced will go directly to backers in the form of rewards so it's a win-win; how cool is that?

If you really like motorcycle movies we've even created a reward level that lets backers get both "The Bonneville Project" as well as  of our last release, "American Cafe"; a documentary about the rise of the Cafe Racer in America and one of the largest regular gatherings of cafe racers, The Slimey Crud Motorcycle Gang Cafe Racer Run.

We also have reward levels for small or large retailers and distributors who would like to carry "The Bonneville Project" in their shops at a better-than-wholesale price.

We can't wait for you to see "The Bonneville Project", help us meet our goal and you'll have one of the first copies of this film available!

Risks and challenges

We're targetting November to receive the finished DVD's that will be distributed as rewards to backers, but as with any creative or production process, unexpected delays can crop up and slow things down. We expect to be able to deliver by November, but if at any time it looks like this release date will be delayed we'll be sure to let our backers know as soon as we do.
