Default Faster Movie Releases ... spread the word



Even better than the DVD is that the movie has been picked up for wider cinema distribution. Check out this press release from the director, find out if there are screenings in your area, and help spread the word.



USA NEWS FROM SLAMDANCE HQ: -



Slamdance goes On The Road across the USA with Mark Neale's critically acclaimed MotoGP documentary FASTER beginning September 2, 2004.



Following several successful local screenings FASTER has been pushed up the distribution rankings to compete on the front line with the big boy Studio releases. Not bad for a 100% independently made picture! Plus, the film

has been transferred to 35mm film in Dolby® 5.1 digital sound!



You can see when and where FASTER is going to play by going to http://www.slamdance.com/distribution/faster.asp



You can help us to promote the movie: we indies don't have the big print and

advertising budgets of the Hollywood studios so your word is much appreciated and very important to us. Also, if you would like to receive posters and/or postcards to distribute to your friends and customers please do not hesitate to let Kate at Slamdance know by e-mail. Her address is



kate@slamdance.com



All the best,

The Faster & Slamdance Team

Good luck with the film. I bought the DVD as soon as it came out and loved it. I have watched it three times already. It made me an instant MotoGP fan.



I'll be seeing the Chicago screening at Century Theater as well. Good venue.

Default Release of Faster Movie (MotoGP)

I saw previews of this film at the Seattle Cycle Show last winter. At the same time that the motor-centers of my brain made me stand and watch the preview three times (while the pleasure centers of my brain made me watch the preview three times while standing very close to the spokesmodel's cleavage), I was certain that the movie would never get a distributor.



I thought it was just too fringe for the movie business to take seriously. But it's very well done; Ewan McGregor (sp?) narrates and the camerawork is schweeet.



So I've ordered my DVD; when it comes Sarnali and I are going over to KPaul's to watch it. No, wait, that would be the sign of the apocalypse.

Do yourself a favor and see the film. Unless you flat-out don't like racing or sport bikes you'll really enjoy the movie.



There are great moments on and off the track between Rossi and Biaggi. The "pushing" incident at the (I believe) 2001 Suzuka GP is highlighted. Commentary from Kevin Schwantz and Wayne Rainey is great not to mention the excellent race footage of the two. Following Gary 'the slide king" McCoy is downright sad at times but he is involved in one of the funniest moments in the movie when talking with an apparently very emotional fan.



Skip all the normal motorcycle movie crap put out by the Hollywood big budgets and check out Faster for the real deal.

I bought the DVD from a vendor at Laguna Seca during the WSB races.



I agree: it's a really good movie.

Its definitely worth your time to see this movie. I bought the DVD when it became available. I've watched it more times than I can count and made all my friends watch it (even though none of them ride)

"Best $30 I have spent in a very long time..."



I couldn't agree more.



I have the added benefit of being a huge Rossi fan and an even bigger Biaa-ch-i hater so I really dug the movie.



It was great to see the two-strokes again.

Ooooh, I gotta get it. I keep forgetting to order the DVD. Someone remind me again in a couple of days. I'll probably forget again.
