Update (9/25/2018): We are in post-production on a short version of the Troublemakers documentary.
We're currently color grading and remixing the sound tracks for the documentary short. We hope to premiere the short version later this year at a film festival in Southern California.
We also started recording interviews and video for the Mexican Express documentary which will focus more on Rick Esparza and his brother Fred who raced Fred's car the Mexican Express at Lion's Drag Strip in Long Beach back in the 1960-70s.
Mexican Express will be a longer documentary film that focuses on the two brothers and their love of racing as they grew up.
Update (4/3/2018): We recorded great video of the
Trouble Maker AA/FA (Fuel Altered) drag racing team at the 2018 Good Vibrations Motorsports March Meet in Bakersfield, CA.
Although the Trouble Maker didn't make the qualifier to the finals, we did record interviews with driver Nitro Jim Holtz, owner Vince D, and mechanic Rick Esparza. We also got a lot of great b-roll video for our documentary project.
Here's your chance to help support this nitro-fueled new documentary with a donation to our gofundme campaign.
We're asking for your help to raise money to cover the cost of traveling to shoot additional segements on location in Long Beach, CA, new interviews, hiring an editor to sort through all the video, and acquiring archival film and photos of Lion's Drag Strip for the documentary.
We are changing the focus of the documetary project to include more of Rick Esparza's story of growing up in Long Beach, CA and going to the races at Lion's Drag Strip with hisolder brother Fred Esparza.
The two brothers raced with Fred's car the Mexican Express at Lion's Drag Strip in Long Beach.
The newly revised project will be about the Mexican Express, Lion's Drag Strip and brothers Rick and Fred growing up in Long Beach, CA.
Everyone who donates will receive a link to watch the HD digital screener online when the film is completed and released on Amazon Prime! Your name will also be listed in the credits.
If you donate $20 or more you'll also get a collectible DVD copy of the full series with bonus material.
