@01:13You may be right. I wanted to go in slow, a sort of lull before the storm, but I realize I test people's patience. But I hope after peeling the rind, the fruit is sweet. ; ) Check out CRUTCH 2001 for over all fast pace [link]

@04:05You might be talking about RJD2's latest vid "Work it out" [link] He does some great solo work there.

This represents a 10 minute glimpse into the world of CRUTCH, an indie documentary by Sachi Cunningham and Chandler Evans. See [link] for more.

In what has become a 7 year odyssey, the filmmakers have followed Bill Shannon, aka "Crutchmaster," across the US and around the globe to record the story of his ascension from an obscure street artist to an internationally acclaimed performer and choreographer. Now with over 200 hours of original footage, the Filmmakers have begun to unravel a complex narrative about an ambiguously disabled, multi-displinary artist who defies both definition and gravity. Due out in Festivals this Spring.

Shot mostly on a Panasonic DVX100a, and edited on FCP.

Directed by Sachi Cunningham and Chandler Evans

Edited by M'Daya Meliani and Chandler Evans

Music by (in order of appearance) Milosh "I'm Trying," Poets of Rhythm "The Jaunt," The High and Mighty "B-boy Document," RJD2 "1976," Culver City Dub Collective "The Count," Company Flow "Gigapet Epiphany," Junip "Turn to the Assassin"

Old school breaking footage from "BREAKIN'" 1984

For more info on Bill, please visit his site: [link]

Big shot out to Johnny Bachelier and the folks @ King Cut!

CRUTCH 2007 by `vayabobo. Whilst this piece of film is older most of my other features, it still demonstrates some top film making. It is inspirational and pieced together very well with good music, an excellent documentary film and I hope that Bill is doing well! ( Suggested by Nichrysalis and Featured by kingmancheng )

Wow, I just signed in and found out about the DD! Thanks so much to NicBelroque and kingmancheng and to all of you for watching it!!

The funny thing is that we've still been working on the project (over 10 years) and are closer than ever to having a finished feature lenght doc. Check our site www.crutchdoc.com for more info and an updated trailer.

Once again, thank you everyone!! :D

Hey I'm looking forward to the feature length!

I run a series of articles called 'Film in Progress' and perhaps you would like to talk to us about your work? 

Here is one of the articles I wrote! kingmancheng.deviantart.com/jo…
