Our Mission
Momentum is a DVD project designed around a core of ideas.
1. To create a new venue for innovators to show their work
2. To celebrate the Spinning Community and collaboration within it.
3. To create a new setting for growth and innovation within the Spinning Community.
4. To give our widespread audience the chance to learn from some of the best instructors in the Spinning Arts.

Each of our performers is an innovator and skilled teacher in their respective fields, and have contributed (and will continue to do so) to Spinning through their creative vision. With this project, we hope to catalyze even further innovation.

Our amazing cast:
Ben Drexler (Washington D.C.)
Mike 'Doodle' Smith (Cincinnati, OH)
Aileen Lawlor (Oakland, CA)
Tim Goddard (Adelaide, Australia)
Jonathan Alvarez (Boston, MA)
Charlie Cushing (Vermont)
Lux Luminous (Boston, MA)
Chris Kelly (Eugene, OR)
Justin Warren and Christina Koller (Boston, MA)
Matthew Sosticky (Virginia)
Kyle Johnson (Oakland, CA)
Brecken Rivara


This project is also designed to be a unifier, bringing together all types of artists within the Spinning Community, such that all aspects of production are being handled by people whom are already part of the spinning world.

The funds from this campaign will be specifically going to;

Travel expenses for filming the individual performers
Music Licensing costs
DVD Duplication fees
Graphic Designing for the entire Momentum project

All other expenses have already been taken care of, including camera equipment, individual fees for smaller parties involved, and domain registration and web hosting.

It is our hope that this project puts a strong emphasis on creation of artistic outlets and helps push the community in a more streamlined direction.

Should this project be funded, the estimated date of completion is February/March of 2014

The Flow Game
As you'll notice in some of our Kickstarter Rewards, we are offering challenges to the Flow Game! What that means is if you choose this reward, you get to choose a song for said performer to spin to, and they must post a video of themselves spinning to your song! All impromptu, no choreography, so you will see them organically spinning to your song of choice.
All videos will be uploaded to the official Momentum YouTube Channel!

The 'Take Flight' Painting
'Take Flight' is a canvas painting created by Teddy Petrosky. He is donating a small run of this painting for Momentum! Each one is going to be unique, but only 5 will be available.

Risks and challenges

While this project is quite straightforward, there are some risks involved.
Specifically, the toughest issue has been Music Licensing.

We've made the conscious decision not to use Royalty Free music in the desire to make the production level of this DVD significantly higher. We're working with musicians whom are highly talented and recognized for their work.
We already have more than half of the songs necessary ready with a contract, but we are still in negotiation with others. This is an ongoing endeavor, but one we are confident that we can handle with grace.

Of course, the other risks (while significantly easier to deal with) involve not meeting filming deadlines, travel plans being detoured by acts of nature, and weather conditions creating obstacles on days of filming.

But we are resilient, and nothing can stop us from completing our goals!
