Hudson River Project is a feature doc film with an original score by Mogwai. Its being exec produced by the makers of The Imposter (Sundance select). Its a pretty simple idea:
Build a boat out of Manhattan’s waste, take it to the source of the Hudson River - Lake Tear of the Clouds, high in the Adirondack Mountains - and row the boat back to Manhattan.
The best pitch is this 2 minute taster trailer we made last year:
We will start shooting on the 15th October and the entire shoot will take 2 months. We are using a small crew to stay light and true to one of the ideas behind the film (making the most of resources).
Once shot our distribution plan involves Ben Tricklebank who built www.thewildernessdowntown.com for google and The Arcade Fire. We hope to premiere at Sundance in 2015 and we'll also be touring the film with Mogwai.
