I am attempting to scratch off one of life goals; to produce a live "Big-City" BBOY BATTLE event in Southern Oregon. I want to capture this entire process on film and present it to the world as a short documentary.
My name is Luis Rodriguez, I am a filmmaker, but I have also spent over ten years Bboying (Breakdancing). I have been fortunate enough travel around, meet and befriend some of the best dancers in the world. I want to bring them to my hometown for an event of a lifetime.
I have had tremendous support from the local community, especially in the past few years. My crew, Wicked FX, is the ONLY Bboy crew around. This project is extremely important to me for many reasons. Most of all, because it would give me an opportunity to show people what this dance is really like in one it's purest and most exciting forms.
If I can pull it off, it would mean the world to me. I want to combine my two biggest passions; Film and Dance. The end result will be: An amazing spectacle for the community, which will include some of the BEST Bboys dancing these days, and a film that will show the journey that I took to in order to achieve one of my biggest dreams.
What is Needed:
* $5,000 to cover expenses.
Cost for event: Venue, DJ, Insurance, Prizes, Supplies, and expenses to
compensate our professional judging panel.
Cost for film production: Camera and Sound equipment, cinematographer,
sound tech, lighting, and food.
What you get:
I am going do our best to compensate our backers with the best perks possible. I will, of course, include:
Copies of DVD.
Digital download of film.
But, I will also offer a lot of great unique perks, including:
Posters singed by winners of competition.
Video shout-outs from dancers.
Special behind-the-scenes footage.
This will not only be important to me, but to many people in Southern Oregon and to the dancers that will take part in the event and film.
In a small town, there are not very many opportunities to see world-class dancers. This would give the community an opportunity to experience something that they would otherwise not be able to witness
