A Fundraiser Event for Circles 2/3/24
This project as well as the communities and people that inspired it are sacred to Dana. His goal has been to make the film 100% grass roots, without any brand involvement or investors to keep true to the vision and ethos. That vision has come to fruition. Circles is at 90% completion with no funding and only favors from special buds like Origins Archival who helped making a purely 16mm film possible. Kyle Kennelly was the first person he pointed that camera at, while Greg Weaver yelled "Bolex, Rex 4... Pull the trigger, count to 10, then move on to the next wave rider.", in the background as Dana loaded it with a roll at the Blackies lot in Newport. From there it snowballed, more people got involved and every session the camera got pulled out was like reliving each one of those fragmented dreams in deja vu.
