‘Beyond Naked’ Solstice Parade Documentary Looking For Funding Help

By Sean Keeley · May 12th, 2011 · No Comments

We told you about Beyond Naked, the documentary that will explore what happens when four first-time participants accept a challenge to ride naked in the 2011 Fremont Solstice Parade. Of course, it takes a lot to put together a documentary and that means you need some money to make it happen. Director Dan McComb and producer Lisa Cooper are using the fundraising site Kickstarter to find the help needed to make the documentary happen.

Your donations will be used to cover expenses that include renting camera stabilizers, purchasing hard drives and specially outfitting bicycles to allow filming cheek-to-cheek with our naked riders. Feeding the crew, buying paint and renting cameras, sound gear and even a radio-controlled helicopter—it all adds up. When it’s all done, we’ll hire a broker to help us get the film on Netflix.

The filmmakers are hoping to raise $13,500 by June 12th and offer a whole range of benefits for those interested in helping them out. Pledge enough and you can even get access to a VIP Suite the day of the parade and an Executive Producer credit. Check out the fundraising page to see how you can help.
