Sellwood neighborhood resident Drew Coleman has a vision for his next project. But he needs a bit of help to realize it.
Coleman is a filmmaker who started shooting local cyclocross races this summer. He’s also started a YouTube channel under the Local Cycling Network banner. Now he wants to cover the biggest race of the year: the Cyclocross National Championships which take place in Reno, Nevada next weekend. This time around he wants to do try something new: Coleman wants to shoot the race and the culture that surrounds it, on film. He’s bought a 1983 Canon 814 xl-s camera and he’s looking for support to buy the film which runs about $1.53 per second.
He’s launched a GoFundMe campaign and hopes to raise $2,500 for the trip and the film.
Here’s more from Drew about the project:
