An independent documentary is a lot like a Red line train. Time and again, you must expect delays.
After many challenges and much ado, we’re FINALLY approaching our stop! This fall, The Red Line D.C. Project will release the long-awaited, much-anticipated documentary “See / Line,” a two-part series on metro graffiti.
We’ve taken in feedback and tightened our story, combining part one “See Something, Say Something,” with the never-before-seen “Crossing the Line.” And like any good two-for-one special, both parts work together to explore the Red line’s significance and the relationship between access and aesthetics in the District.
Check back for event details, teaser footage and post-production updates. We’ll be using the summer to workshop the project and spark community engagement.
If you’re interested in getting involved with Red Line D.C. or hosting a screening, we’re looking for a few good editors and organizations to contribute their time, space and/or skills. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or @_RedLineDC_ for more information.
As 2013 approaches, we know you’re eager for the big reveal of Red Line D.C.‘s final two-part documentary series. Trust us when we say, so are we!
Having finished the fine cuts of (part one) “See Something, Say Something” and (part two, tentatively titled), “Crossing the Line,” director/producer Saaret Yoseph has tagged in some essential support to help her champion–and finally complete–this three-year long project The remaining elements include, visual effects and a soundtrack by local legend Damu the Fudgemunk, a surefire combo package to compliment our documentary efforts.
We know that you are just as excited as we are to see these final touches come together. No doubt, a little impatient, as well. But fret not. With a few months to go until completion, we wouldn’t pass the time without giving you a taste of what’s to come. Here’s a slideshow featuring some of the fantastic, never-before-seen photos of Red line graffiti that we’ll be including in both films. These images have been collected by Cory Stowers, one of our featured interviewees and co-owner of the custom design shop Art Under Pressure. We have him to thank for holding you over until we get our act together.
Enjoy! And, as always, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!
