Thanks to your votes, the story of a New Jersey-bred racing bike, “The Badger: Made in Trenton,” won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!
Congratulations to director Drue Pennella! The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation with SnagFilms, and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month, the winner of which will receive a consultation with the Tribeca Film Institute.
Pennella’s documentary shows the journey of an underdog racing bike taken from the street to the track — a modest, vintage Roayl Enfield bike turned within one month into a track-racing speed demon. Pennella visualizes his love of motorcyles with “Badger” and is a fine example of a filmmaker manifesting other passions and hobbies in his creative life.
More Projects of the Day coming this week. Want your project to be considered? Tell us about it here.
