We’re thrilled to announce that Beyond Naked is now available on IndieFlix, the NetFlix of independent film. IndieFlix is based here in Seattle, which we like very much. Plus, a subscription is just $6.99/month, and you can cancel at any time. For that money, you can watch hundreds of other films, rather than just renting or purchasing Beyond Naked on demand (although you can also do either here.) Options are good. Enjoy!
What happens when four first-timers accept a challenge to ride naked in Seattle's legendary Solstice Parade? This feature-length documentary explores our deep-rooted fear and awkward fascination with nakedness through the lens of one of Seattle's most popular traditions.
Stay informed about screenings and film events:
The filmmakers and cast had a blast continuing our festival run last weekend at the Celluloid Bainbridge Film Festival. All but Marlene Value were in attendance at the historic Lynwood Theater on Bainbridge Island for a memorable screening.
The festival features films with a Bainbridge connection, and our’s was Steve Stolee, a Bainbridge-based filmmaker who was a member of Beyond Naked’s parade-day camera crew.
We’re grateful to the organizers for including the film in a great line-up at this year’s event.
I once drove all the way to Tacoma to watch The Cove. That’s where I discovered The Grand Cinema. It’s a throwback to another time, perfectly preserved. I remember thinking to myself, “I want to watch one of my films here some day.”
Please join us for the screening and audience Q&A afterward. At least two of the cast members, Jeff and Emily, will be present as well. Lisa and I will likely head to a nearby pub for drinks after and you’re invited.
Vimeo just added the capability to rent OR buy all their on-demand films. That includes Beyond Naked! So we’ve quickly added the option to purchase the film for $7.99. That will give you the option to download the film for watching as many times as you like on any device you choose. Enjoy!
As promised, just in time for the Solstice Parade, the Beyond Naked is now available streaming only for $4.99 on Vimeo.
If you missed the parade yesterday, either because you didn’t attend or you were too far back to get a good view, you can have the best seat in the house by watching Beyond Naked. Never-before-seen aerial perspectives, and on-the-street camera work place you in the middle of the action.
This just in: the Vashon Film Society invites you and your friends to a special, one-night-only screening of Beyond Naked. Hop on the ferry for a short adventure and a chance to see Beyond Naked on the big screen in stunning full HD.
Director Dan McComb, producer Lisa Cooper and many of the cast and crew members will attend the June 7 screening and will do a Q & A following the show.
Vashon Film Society presents monthly single screenings of art films on First Fridays after the Gallery Cruise. Come early for the art walk in Vashon town (6 pm on), grab supper, and then head to the Vashon Theatre for “Beyond Naked” at 9:30 pm. Admission to the screening is $7. Get tickets now.
We’re thrilled to announce that Beyond Naked has won Best Documentary Feature and the associated $1,000 jury prize at the Seattle True Independent Film Festival! Lisa and I were traveling back from Ashford, Wa. where we had a screening of one of our shorts earlier in the day, when we got the news in a text from cast member Jeff Hedgepeth, who represented us at the awards ceremony. We made it back in time for the STIFF party at Metropole.
I can’t say enough good things about STIFF and the organizers Tim Vernor and Willard Chase, as well as all the other volunteers who made the festival happen. Thank you STIFF for making our dream of screening Beyond Naked in front of a local audience come true.
Join us on the Summer Solstice, June 21st for a special screening of Beyond Naked. Filmmakers will be in attendance, as well as select cast and crew, who will be available for an audience Q & A after the screening. GET TICKETS!
Body paint demonstration: Jeff Hengst, whose body painting was featured in the film, will be on hand to demonstrate techniques and materials that every naked cyclist should know. Learn how to turn your idea into an unforgettable work of art.
Date: Friday, June 21st
Time: Doors open at 7pm, screening at 7:30pm
Where: Little Red Day Spa, 3200 Airport Way S , Seattle, WA 98134
Celebrate on the longest night of the year with Beyond Naked cast, crew and fans. Party is hosted by Jeff Hengst at the Little Red Day Spa (9pm- 2am).
All tickets are gone for Beyond Naked, but there’s still one way left for you to get in the door. That’s to purchase a $50 all-access STIFF festival pass. As of today, April 20, there are 78 of these left. It seems like a lot money for one movie, but consider it gets you into both screenings on Saturday afternoon and on Monday night, so that’s like paying $25 per ticket. And to be able to say you were at the premiere? Priceless.
Wow, thanks Seattle! The second screening that STIFF added has sold out, like the first one, within 48 hours. You guys are making us proud! We can’t wait to take you on a legendary ride. The premiere is going to be one unforgettable evening, with lots of rumors swirling about what you guys will be wearing (or not wearing).
Still no word from SIFF. We’ve submitted the film to a few other nearby festivals which we hope will add more theater screening opportunities in coming months.
