Get More Kicks On Route 66
Emmy-nominated Simon Cantlon (Director/Producer) and Memphis, TN-based production company Paper Moon Films have started their fundraising campaign for the interactive documentary film and book for The Motels of Route 66.
This documentary film and accompanying book are about the iconic vintage motels alongside the Main Street of America, Route 66. The project will explore the stories of the motel owners, the architecture, the travelers and the road itself.
Fundraising pledge incentives include postcards from the road, copies of the documentary / book, associate producer credit and A Route 66 Trip package for two!
The Kickstarter campaign is looking to raise 30k which will cover a month-long journey along 2,448 miles of Route 66 between Chicago and Los Angeles It will include a four-man film crew (director, cameraman, photographer, lighting / sound). Your contribution can make it all happen.
The project will not only portray the vintage motels in both film and photo along Route 66, it will also feature day-in-the-life glimpses into some of the uniquely American people who run these classic sleep establishments along with the travelers who stay the night.
The documentary and book will also seek contributions from people all over the world of their personally filmed footage and photographs from Route 66 for potential inclusion in the finished products.
