A local non-profit is looking for a few good subjects who aren't bashful about participating in Portland's annual Naked Bike Ride.
Portland-based NW Documentary teaches classes on documentary filmmaking (including one on how to film by bike) and they also boast a respectable track record in producing their own short films. Lilah Cady, a NW Documentary staffer, tells us their last short film was accepted into over 30 film festivals including major ones like Tribeca and London.
Lilah says they now want to produce a short documentary on the naked ride — which is considered the largest in the world. To make the film happen, they need to coordinate interviews with folks who have done the ride and/or plan to do the ride this year. It's worth noting that Lilah and her crew are working in coordination with ride organizers, and they come highly recommended by several folks I know and respect (just in case you were concerned about their intentions).
Here's more from a NW Documentary flyer about the project (which you can see below):
"We want to meet Portlanders of all types who can share their thoughts and experiences related to this unique annual event. We would love to chat about your reasons for participating, your plan for the ride, and more about you."
