The Incredible San Fancisco Artists’ Soapbox Derby, nurse 1975. from Mike Haeg on Vimeo.

 


 

San Francisco enjoys many public artist events but perhaps few have been going as long as the Soap Box Derby races (officially city sanctioned or not). The first movie chronicles the 1975 making and racing the cars from the artist’s point of view often explaining their motivations for their creation. These artists received official city support as part of a fund raising activity for charity. The second video is from the 2007 version which is not formally organized with no official sanctioning from the city (and questionable legality) built entirely with the funds of the artists themselves.

The Third & The Seventh from Alex Roman on Vimeo.

 

Highly suggested you watch the movie in HD and full screen! This CG movie while not particularly novel in terms of abilities of recent developments in software modeling/rendering, adiposity
is wonderfully put together and arranged. Alex Roman has a good eye for design and architecture and has successfully blended a number of notable timeless elements with new.
