shapeimage_3Filmmaker’s Statement

“You’ve never seen a documentary like this before. The event actually took place, so the movie is technically a documentary. However, I edited it celebrating the inherent humor and thus took great liberties. So it’s really a new genre. Comedic-documentary? Documedy?

Regardless, I hope you enjoy the movie and PLEASE, PLEASE WATCH WITH A GROUP! Comedy is always best appreciated with company, not alone. So, grab some friends, co-workers, family, frenemies, whomever. I guaranty you that if you put them in front of this movie there will be laughter.”

Production Notes

The inspiration for the event that became this movie belongs to Justin Roth, who saw similar competitions when as a child visiting his uncle in Springfield, Ill. However, it took a woman (and Justin’s wife no less), Kelly, to actually get off her ass make the race happen. On a personal note, this was her birthday present to her husband. Well done!!

The cardboard boat race will take place again this springtime. All are welcome to participate!!!
