We did it. We screened the first cut of Empire at the 10th anniversary of the Bicycle Film Festival to two sold-out audiences. I’m pretty sure everyone loved it, and we got lots of great feedback.
Many photographers were on hand all week, but so far Tod Seelie has the best photos of our screening.
The audience was rapt.
Then we did a thankfully brief Q&A session with the riders.
A huge thanks to Brendt Barbur for helping make this happen, and to everyone else who made this possible. The riders, the collaborators, the groupie, the lovers, and even the haters.
We’re in the process of finalizing the cut and getting everything in order for the DVD. Expect more frequent updates as we get there. But don’t get mad if we don’t actually follow through.
