NYC Critical Mass Documentary Trailer

John July 5, 2011 0

Here is a super sick trailer I saw on Locked Cog…this is a trailer for the brand new NYC Critical Mass Documentary, titled “Last Friday of the Month.”  This looks pretty epic and tight…I don’t think it will be corny…looks like it will be good.  Check out their kickstarter campaign…check below the video for more information on this project.

CRITICAL MASS is a leaderless, monthly bicycle ride that takes place in over 300 cities around the world, typically on the last Friday of every month.

In 2004 New York City’s Critical Mass bicycle ride was labeled a “protest” and the police began an uncommonly aggressive campaign of mass arrests of bicyclists. Chris ( the Director ) was caught up in the first wave of arrests and has continued filming Critical Mass rides, while following relevant court cases and documenting other cyclists’ personal experiences.

Chris’ footage has already been the basis of a New York Times cover story, helped protect the Constitutional Right of Assembly, and been used to help fellow cyclists prove their innocence, winning court cases against the city of New York and the NYPD for unlawful arrests and tickets.

We’ve amassed over 350 hours of footage and now we need your FINANCIAL HELP to edit and finish this film. Our goal is to submit the film to festivals ( Sundance, Tribeca, Cannes), aim for a theatrical release, and eventually air it on television ( PBS, IFC, Sundance ) as well as sell it on DVD and stream it on Netflix.

To achieve these goals, we need your direct support. By making a financial contribution to our kickstarter campaign, YOU are enabling us edit and create this important historical feature length documentary, tentatively titled “Last Friday of the Month.”

As we meet our financial goal, you will immediately get amazing gifts for your pledge, and will then be a part of the producing team, receiving updates, invites to screenings, dinners, and even a chance for Chris to make a “mini-doc” on the subject of your choice!

Please pass this email & information about our film to anyone you know who is a fan of independent films and supporting the arts.

The Kickstarter.com “crowd funding” model is an ALL OR NOTHING deal. (We either make our full goal, or we get nothing, so come on aboard and make a pledge.)

Together we will make this documentary!

Producer, Last Friday of the Month
