About this project
Description : Man vs Moto is a webisode series documenting the trials and tribulations of the privateer motocrosser chasing a dream. The cameras are on 24/7 so we capture everything it takes to succeed and all emotion spilled into this sport. We are currently trying to raise funds to get the crew (one ridern (Austin Howell), one mechanic and one filmer)) to the nationals, and bring the series live to your living rooms.
The plan : To travel to and compete in each 2014 AMA Motocross national. Document every step of the way through a 12 video webisode series.
How it will work : After each race, the weekly footage of training and riding, along with traveling and racing will be combined into a short 6-9 minute video for people to check out. We will keep fans up to date on when the new videos are posted through all our social media accounts via face book, instagram and twitter.
Where the funds will be spent : It is hard to ask for the amount of money we are asking for. To a privateer, 60k is like hitting the jackpot! However, this year is financially going to be a bit steeper bringing in more people, and going a different rout to getting to the races. We are not here to go buy ourselves shoes and cloths, we are not expecting a pay check, the crew just wants to make this series a go. Every dollar earned will be directly put towards the Man vs Moto Racing Fund where we will solely spend the money on making the trip happen. Such costs will consist of entry fees, credentials, flights, lodging, fuel, parts, bike transportation, and equipment just to name a few. Being we are going a different rout this year, it is going to cost an extra couple bucks to get three people to the races. We guarantee that we can make the series a hit and truly appreciate every dollar donated.
The rider : Austin Howell (#681) will be the featured rider to carry out the series. He is a great kid with a big heart for motocross. Not only does he have a great personality, he also has some very hot wheels... What I am saying is the kid is lightening fast and is easily capable of getting inside the top 20 in each race. Right out of amateurs he road for the Rockstar Suzuki team but soon lost his ride. He has held two previous national numbers and is looking to regain exposure and prove to everyone that he is deserving of a factory ride. Austin has a great story behind him and will be an awesome representative for Man vs Moto!
Risks and challenges
For man vs moto 2 to go on, the biggest risk and challenge is to first get the series funded. I do not have the money to pay for flights and entry fees a head of time so the funds are really going to help get the ball rolling. From there, being I (Derek Anderson) won't be racing and dedicating all my time to riding and training, I will be able to interact and stay in tune with the fans on the regular. If someone doesn't receive something or has a problem with something I will be able to take care of it on the spot. Also, if for some reason our rider goes down, we have at least two back-up riders ready to go to continue and finish out the series.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
