The Portland Soap Box Derby movie starts its run tonight on Portland Community Media Channel 11 in less than 4 hours, But, if you are unable to stay up tonight and watch it, there are many more options including later on Tuesday.
Info about the movie from Jacob Ostrum:
The documentary is one hour in length and was shot by a 5 person professional camera crew, on the hottest day of the year, to make sure all the fun and action was captured from start to finish. It is comprised of over 18 full races, participant interviews, and plenty of costumes, marching bands, Soap Box accidents, and colorful attendees, all set against the backdrop of beautiful Mt. Tabor Park and the Portland skyline.
Portland Adult Soap Box 2008 also has an original, locally created soundtrack. Some of the interviews included were between the top two racers, shot right at the finish line.
The camera crew are members of Portland Community Media who volunteered to document this Portland tradition.
Right now it is scheduled to broadcast on Comcast cable channels 11, 22, & 23.
