Scooter Cannonball Run: The Movie -- It's Not A Race

$24,373

Thanks to all our backers we've reached our goal! All additional funds will go towards getting the film subtitled, starting with Italian! 

We were selected as Indiewire's Project of the Week!

"It's Not A Race" is a feature length documentary that follows 22 scooterists as they compete in a cross country "timed endurance event". We shot 300 hours of footage and it has taken us a long time and a lot of our own money to get to this point, but now we need your support to get the movie finished.

Up until now, this project has been entirely self-funded. The additional funds we raise on Kickstarter will help with:

  • Audio Mix - a professional engineer to take all our hastily recorded location audio and make it pop. 
  • Motion Graphics - a small team of artists are needed to create the map graphics that illustrate the 3,487 mile journey
  •  Music - score and music licensing costs Color Correction - final color correction to clean up the picture
  • Design - Titles and posters need to be designed to created as well as our poster/box cover.

We plan to have the movie finished and on our backers' computers and TVs in early 2015.

Risks and challenges

Filmmaking is always challenging, but, there is never anything that can't be solved with a combination of time, money and skill. We have the skills and time is a flat circle... So...
