- Brian Darwas releases short film on artist Keith Weesner.
Film maker Brian Darwas currently produces feature length documentaries on Hot Rod and Motorcycle Culture.  All of which have gone on to win awards, and have been well received.  He's now changing things up a bit, making a handful short films that anyone can share freely.  
"I feel it's important to our scene that high quality moving images, which can both awe and inspire, are available to anyone at anytime.  My goal is to reach the younger generation.  The generation of people who grew up on the Internet, and turn to it as a source of new ideas and inspiration.  I'd like to instill in them the notion that hot rods, motorcycles, and building stuff by hand is still cool and relevant." ~ Brian Darwas
When asked why he chose to film Keith Weesner, Brian Darwas had this to say:
"Artists often come and go. Very few have what it takes to make it through the hard living that comes with earning no money while trying to establish yourself. . . and as if constantly creating something new and exciting wasn't hard enough, you also have to pay your dues and prove to the world that you're the real thing. That you're not just somebody who came along to latch on and make a quick buck.
Keith Weesner is just that, the real thing. His love for Hot Rods, Customs, and the general Culture that surrounds it all speaks for itself through his art. The paintings he paints and the cars he builds and drives. He's been doing this a long time and it shows. He didn't fade away when the going got tough, and he's been doing it before it was cool." ~ Brian Darwas
Each film will run anywhere from two, to five minutes.  Once completed, they will be shared freely via the Internet, social media, etc. . . So, please share and help spread the word.
