Handlebar Fundraiser: November 15, 2009

A friend of the co-op, filmmaker Michael McCallum, is hosting a fundraiser for his latest film project, Handlebar. Please attend the event, or help out if you can!

Sunday, November 15, 2009
7:00 p.m.
Stober's Bar
812 E Michigan Ave, Lansing MI
(517) 487-4464
Donations, please

The movie is all cut together, sound work 90% completed; they just need a little help to get the rest of it finished, to get DVDs made, and to rent the theater for a January premiere at Celebration Cinema in Lansing-area, Michigan.

Just coming off the success of his first feature film, Fairview St. (11 film festivals, 5 awards so far), they're hoping to entertain you with a comedy that enlists the talents of much of the same folks from Fairview St.

Handlebar will be Michael's second feature film that he's directed. He co-wrote the movie with Shane Hagedorn, and it stars the two of them, alongside Grace Anne Rowan, Wallace Bridges, and Michael's Father, William C. McCallum. It's full of colorful characters from the Lansing area and shot completely in Lansing, as well.

A.E. Griffin was the Director of Photography for Handlebar, and Jon Worful's editing talents were used to help cut the film together. A small section of the film will be shown at the fundraiser, with the trailer and a sneak preview of a scene that Stober's own John Orta is in!

Food will be available.

Please come out and support local film and local art! Every little bit helps.

If you can't make it, please send a donation:
