View Full Version : Kickstarter Campaign for new documentary "Skating Through It"

04-20-2012, 11:10 PM
There's a filmmaker named Nisma who has been tracking a few adult skaters for several years and is making a documentary about their experiences in skating: how it helps them deal with life's challenges, the joy of it, etc. She only has one week left to meet her Kickstarter goal of $8,000 to complete the film.

Here is the link to watch the trailer, (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nisma/skating-through-it) and if you're feeling generous, throw a little donation at her project. We need more skating movies out there!

And no, she didn't ask me to post this. But I've met her and she's very nice and dedicated. Plus I know the skaters picked for the film and have competed with them at Adult Nationals for years. Would be nice to see a film about adult skating on the big screen! Thanks

That is AWESOME!! (Plus, I met one of the skaters--super bendy guy Chris, with GORGEOUS spirals--at Buckeye Open one year.)

Thank you for supporting this, manleywoman -- and anyone who is donating and/or supporting in spirit! I'd love to see this take off. :)

Hahaha... I'll have to pass this along to Chris. He'll get a kick out of the "Super Bendy guy" comment. :D I have the pleasure of knowing all three skaters featured -- two quite well. They are an inspiration to many of their fellow adult skaters, and there are so many more with interesting and diverse experiences in our adult skating community.

Even if I didn't know the skaters focused, there really is an interesting angle to how these stories are told, and I'm encouraged to see that the campaign is now up to $7,251 out of $8,000. So close, and less than 3 days left! A few donations of $5-25 will really go a long way.
