Year-round Metal Enjoyment Fundraiser

Last year we featured a trailer for an upcoming documentary by Mint Films titled ‘Year-round Metal Enjoyment’ about New England’s freight scene. Funded entirely out-of-pocket, Mint Films is now reaching out to those who are interested in seeing this movie through post-production and to finalize this beautiful and exclusive documentary film.

Following numerous freight train graffiti artists like JURNE, ICHABOD, MES just to name a few, Year-round Metal Enjoyment explores the Northeast’s many ties to the railroad world. With over two years of footage, more than a dozen interviews from artists, railfans and workers, Mint Films gives an in-depth look into this obscure and elusive world.

This is Mint Film’s first full-length documentary and there is a staggering amount of work that goes into post-production. Campaigns like this ask from around $12,000 to $300,000. Mint Films are looking to raise $9,000 for assistance with scoring, color correction and other digital post-production work. All of these positions come from New England-based professionals, so any money you donate will go directly into assisting small media businesses.
