Denver-Only DIY Bike Porn Micro Fest

This coming week will be a 1st for us at Bike Porn Industries. Local organizers of the upcoming screening in Denver have thrown down the well lubricated porn gauntlet to its own community. Watch some porn, but dammit you can MAKE YOUR OWN PORN TOO!

Here is the call for entries:

Call for submissions! DIY Bike Porn contest! BIKE PORN ZINE!

Ever wanted to be a pornstar, but couldn’t tear yourself away from your beloved bike long enough to film anything?

Next Saturday, not only do you get to come to a fabulous screening of not one, but TWO films about bike porn (both collections of shorts by various artists exploring the theme of bike porn), BUT ALSO, you (and your bike!) get the chance to be a star!

Bring us your DVDs containing a 6-minute-or-less homemade (i.e. original!) clip of whatever you think is bike porn. This can be anything from creative videos of sexy bikes in motion, all the way to…well, your imagination is as good as mine. Pretty much anything goes, just be creative and sexy, however you define that… and obviously within reason (i.e. probably not a good idea to have a video of yourself or a buddy doing anything too illegal!) Try to get it in .avi format or anything else that will play in either Windows Media Player or QuickTime.

Clips will be screened before and after the screening of the second Bike Porn film, and we will come up with some way of determining who among the contestants deserves a fabulous prize! DVDs will be returned to contestants, and copies will *not* be permanently kept by anyone associated with the organization of the Bike Porn screening (unless you want them to be!)

Bring your best efforts to:
Bike Porn screening
Saturday, October 18th
show starts at 8, try to show up a little earlier if you’re bringing stuff
Orange Cat Studios
2625 Larimer St., Denver
Show is open to anyone 18+, even if you’re not bringing submissions for the BYO Bike Porn contest.

P.S. These don’t have to be super-duper polished or video-edited or any of that stuff. Remember, it’s supposed to be DIY! You can go to bikesmut.com for ideas and inspiration. Any kind of bikes and (consenting adult) humans, toys, puppets, animation, stop-motion animation, or whatever you kids are into, are par for the course. Heck, we’ll even take some stills or slideshows if that’s what you’ve got.

Have fun!

But wait a minute, you may be saying – I love the idea of creating my own Bike Porn and sharing it with my community, but I don’t do video! In fact, I don’t even own a camera! I draw, write, and paint! How can I get in on this marvelous opportunity to celebrate the sexiness of bikes as a community? Don’t worry – we’re putting together a companion zine for the show! Send us your photos, essays, essay-snapshots, drawings, flash, cartoons, xeroxable collages, poems, diagrams,
stories, instructions for DIY sex-toys-made-out-of-bicycle-parts, etc. Photographs can either be “screened” or incorporated into the zine, or both, you decide. We need them by Thursday at 11:00pm. Yeah, I know that’s a really short notice for a zine submission… but that’s all the
time we got to work with unfortunately. Do your best. I’m sure you’ve already got some random pictures lying around of some night when you and your girlfriend and your bike got shitfaced and went crazy. No? What’s wrong with you then?

ALSO – if anyone (especially if you already know what the hell you’re doing when it comes to zines) wants to volunteer to coordinate this little zine project, or even just offer some assistance, PLEASE step up! (I mean come on, if you already do zines anyway, how can you NOT want to get in on something like this? Bike Porn, man!)

Questions, suggestions, zine submissions, offers of help, etc.: talk to Owen at WNBRdenver@gmail.com (FYI, this event and any associated activities are in no way associated with the Denver World Naked Bike Ride; I just don’t have time to go create another email address…)

Inspiring. As stated before, this has never been done at a screening to date. We hope it starts a democratizing trend that sexually liberates bike fuckers the world around.
