BLACK AIR: THE BUICK GRAND NATIONAL DOCUMENTARY
I spent four years making this self-funded, feature-length documentary about the Buick Grand National. I'm not a car guy (and never have been one), but I came to this subject because I wanted to make a film about ambition and social class. The clip above is the film's first five minutes.
I worked alone, researching, making relationships, traveling the country, shooting and editing, all by myself. I handled the distribution, too, offering product direct-to-consumer.
The automotive press has been generous with its attention. Their support has been the film's only marketing campaign. DVDs, posters, and t-shirts are available on the film's official website, while digital downloads can be found on iTunes and Amazon Instant Video.
