About this project
The cycling community in Harrisonburg, VA didn't just happen overnight. For the past 25 years, the Massanutten Hoo-Ha has been a major a event for the community. An ideal relationship sprouted between the bike community & the resort. We'll tell the story of the event; why its relevant to the future of the sport and how it's been vital to the growth of our community. Our goal is to cover the entire event; Virginia's first Enduro, Super D, XC, XXC, Short Track & Kids Race.
This project will involve +2 days of filming and lots of time editing. We're making a significant investment of time in this project. Without your help & support it wouldn't make sense. Plus, there's great old footage from years ago that will be perfect for showcasing the roots of our cycling community and the history of the sport in the local context.
Our production timeline: a highlight teaser short video produced by Tuesday June 11 including a write up submission, stills by Ian McAlexander Photography. After our goal is met, we'll premiere the full-length film in Harrisonburg in Late June or early July. Following the premiere, we'll host the full length film on the Adventure Seen vimeo page.
Risks and challenges
Filming bike races is a challenge filled with inherent risks: bad weather, bikes flying into cameras. We'll take the precautionary measures to keep our equipment safe and also get the shot. We're going out on a limb by shooting both days of the event before funding is secured. Ideally, the project will be fully funded after we shoot the weekend, so the majority of setbacks would be due to insufficient support to fund the editing process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
