Help us reach our goal of $1,000 for the first ever Spanish Language Streetfilm on CicLAvia III at Kickstarter.

Both times that Los Angeles has celebrated CicLAvia, LA Streetsblog and Streetfilms have teamed with film maker Rob Adams to document the event.  This time, we want to do something a little different and we need your help.

In an effort to be more inclusive and broaden our reach, we want to shoot a Streetfilm of the October 9th CicLAvia entirely in Spanish. The film will be of the same professional quality as any other Streetfilm, but will have a Spanish speaking film maker asking questions and getting answers in Spanish.

We’re not talking about subtitling an English Language Streetsfilm, we’re talking about creating the first ever Spanish Language film. As with every Streetfilm, it will be made available on their website and we can produce DVD’s for outreach.  The only problem is that we don’t have the cash on-hand to make the film, and that’s where you come in.  We’ve created a Kickstarter webpage where you can pledge to help us make this film a reality.  Our goal is $1,000.  By Kickstarter rules, if we don’t reach that goal, we don’t get any of the pledged funds.

If this film proves successful, we’ll begin to produce films in Spanish with greater regularity.  If this sounds like something you want to support, visit Kickstarter and help us out!
