**Finally we can see Winston Smith's artwork created exclusively for the Vinylmania film!
Spin into the vinyl records revolution - help launch the music documentary on dvd and spread the importance of vinyl records!
A trip into the grooves, Vinylmania is a 75 minute feature length documentary about an object that has never lost its soul: the vinyl record. An epic love story, the film is filled with fascinating characters and internationally recognized artists including PHILIPPE COHEN SOLAL (Gotan Project), WINSTON SMITH (Dead Kennedys, Green Day record sleeve artist), PETER SAVILLE (Joy Division, New Order record sleeve artist) and DJ KENTARO (2002 DMC World DJ Champion).
Devotion, ecstasy, infatuation, agony – all feelings that the director of the film, Paolo Campana, has experienced from childhood and shares with like-minded record collectors, Djs, musicians and artists (the said vinylmaniacs) in the documentary. Set in 11 different cities and 7 countries worldwide, the director sets out on a global road trip to find out what role vinyl records play in the 21st century.
The 33 in 45 campaign
Our 33 in 45 - $33,000 in 45 days - campaign’s goal is to raise the money to bring the music documentary onto a special edition double dvd to distribute worldwide. The memorable edition will feature a cover sleeve created for the film by the notable American collage artist, Winston Smith, who stars in the film.
The special edition double dvd set will include:
- The 75 minute documentary film Vinylmania with booklet insert, featuring:
- Exclusive bonus material filmed with outtakes from the film and short personal stories from artists, collectors, Djs and Musicians, records stores, labels and other curiosities from the groove of vinyl records.
We want to use this Kickstarter campaign to bring Vinylmania into your homes! Our Kickstarter backers will be the absolutely FIRST owners of the special edition double dvd!
How will your donations be used? The money you give us will fund:- Clearance rights of the music for dvd worldwide release
- A voice over artist and studio to mix an English language narration track (currently in Italian by the director himself)

Un viaggio nei solchi, Vinylmania è una “love story” ricca di straordinari protagonisti e di artisti di fama internazionale come PHILIPPE COHEN SOLAL (Gotan Project), WINSTON SMITH (l’artista che ha creato le copertine dei Dead Kennedys e Green Day), PETER SAVILLE (colui che ha creato le copertine dei Joy Division e New Order) e DJ KENTARO (il DMC campione del modo dei DJ nel 2002). Devozione, estasi, innamoramento, sofferenza – tutti i sentimenti che il regista del film, Paolo Campana, ha vissuto fino dall’infanzia e che oggi li condivide con altri collezionisti, DJ, musicisti e artisti di tutto il mondo.

Fa Ventilato is a New York based, music and sound artist with a creative spirited inspiring mind. His work, always within the variety of contemporary music, finds its way into film, performance, art installations, dance theater or conceptual pop albums as well.
Born 1967 in Altstätten, Switzerland, Ventilato started drumming at age ten. Attending different drum work shops for many years Ventilato is basically self-taught although he later did studies in jazz with Alberto Canonico and improvisation with Pierre Favre.
1996 he moves straight into the East Village of New York City connecting with its noise rock scene of the 90′. Two years later he retires from the drum scene only to merge into the world of home recording and experimental electronic music.
Exploring the art of sampling Ventilato develops a unique sensibility reflected in his making, choosing and combining sounds with rhythm into music or even ambient within any concept of its use.
When funding of our project is successful we'll be in contact, asking you to email us a photo of you and your vinyl record sweetheart (JPEG, dimensions 1800 x 1300 would be best) and a written release saying that we can feature it in our dvd booklet for worldwide release of the special edition dvd. That done, our graphic will do his wizardry and voila!
Yes, shipping costs are included. There will be no extra costs for shipping!
We have currently estimated the creation of 500 special edition double dvd sets.
We will send you a link and password to stream the film on your pc. The exclusive private screening will be able to be viewed for one week from the date we send the link to you. The streaming of the film will be with English subtitles.
Each reward has an estimated delivery date below it.
