Adams Does It Again with Third Mini-Documentary on CicLAvia

Rob Adams is probably as close to an “official videographer” for CicLAvia as one can get.  He shot our two Streetfilms on the big event (watch “Let’s Go” –10.10.10” and “CicLAvia Is…” 4.10.11“) and this time since L.A. Streetsblog/Streetfilms is going in a different direction, the CicLAvia team asked him to shoot a film directly for them.

But just because we didn’t go with Adams this time (his Spanish is about as good as mine…) doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate a good film on our favorite topic.  The above film focuses on many of the things you can do on CicLAvia without a bicycle such as the giant chess set, the musical performances, dodge ball, the rolling photo booth, or even just setting out a chair on the street.  But don’t worry, there’s plenty of shots of people riding their bikes car-free through Los Angeles.

Watching Adams’ films are a great way to spend the time.  172 days until CicLAvia.

A huge Streetsblog thank you to David Barboza, who accepted our challenge and subtitled this year’s Streetfilm on CicLAvia.  Unfortunately, we can’t embed the film with the subtitles, but if you click on the image above it will take you to the Streetfilms page for the film.  Just set the “language” in the lower left […]

Ready for CicLAvia?

Earlier this year, we commissioned our good friend Robin Adams to remix some of his CicLAvia Streetfilms to make a sort of advertisement for Sunday’s big event. We submitted the video to Freewaves, and it’s been running on Metro TV on thousands of Metro buses for the last couple of months. I hope this video […]
