When life runs at 33 revolutions per minute… VINYLMANIA is a documentary film about passion for vinyl records, artists, collections and the music. The project got featured on kickstarter.com, a crowd-funding platform, where startups and visionares receive money for releasing inspiring and new products to the public. Italian Director Paolo Campana’s goal is 33 in 45 – $33,000 in 45 days – to raise the money in funding to bring the music documentary onto a special edition double dvd with worldwide distribution (you all know the relation of the numbers 33 and 45 in here). With every little pledge (starting at $1,00), the project gets a step closer to the goal.
If you pledge $50 and more, you will receive one of the first copies of the douple DVD special edition documentary and your name will be mentioned in the credits, as well. We think you should not miss this unique opportunity to be part of the project HERE.
But pictures tell more than words. Check out the short trailer (1:30 min) and the kickstarter Video with Paolo Campana below.
We support the 33 revolution. Today we gave an additional $50 and joined the crowdfunding community for this great project. As vinylmania was broadcasted at ARTE, a german/french broacasting station, we cannot wait to receive the limited DVD-Box. With a $50 pledge, you will also receive a limited 7″ vinyl, a postcard that was exclusively designed for vinylmania as well as a shoutout on the facebook site as an official backer of the project.
