Q: WHAT KIND OF VENUE SHOULD WE CHOOSE?
A: Use whatever works for the size group you think you can draw. Pedal-Driven has played at theaters big and small, churches, pubs, a state park, an elementary school, a barn, and even at a knitting factory. Use your imagination, it doesn’t have to be fancy to be a great show.
Q: HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
A: Generally speaking, the cost for a screening is $100. Contact Collective Eye Films to find and more and to get your screening license.
Q: HOW DO WE CHOOSE A DATE?
A: We suggest you give yourself at least a month to promote your show, and do your best to avoid booking it on the same day as another big event in your town.
Q: WHEN SHOULD WE LET YOU KNOW?
A: ASAP. The sooner you let us know, the sooner we can help you get the word out.
Q: HOW DO WE PROMOTE?
A: We provide template posters, you fill in the details and print (if you want) or post online. We also provide a template press release for you to customize. Get creative – use Facebook, Twitter, make a blog post, contact the local newspaper columnist who wrote a story about bike trails last week. The most successful shows are put on by groups who have members that are involved in promoting.
Q: HOW DO WE SELL TICKETS?
A: Brown Paper Tickets is a company that provides an affordable ticketing solution.
Q: IS PEDAL-DRIVEN APPROPRIATE TO SHOW TO OUR LAND MANAGERS?
A: YES! Pedal-Driven is an Official Partner of the United States Forest Service, and is a great tool to share with your land managers, no matter the country.
Q: IS THERE A LOT OF RIDING?
A: There are several great riding scenes with some killer tunes.
