    I've just jumped on the computer to pledge for it. They seem to be struggling a bit so get on board, it looks like it'll be a great movie/doco.

    Yeah, There's not a lot of doco's out there on VW's so would be great to see this movie get off the ground.

    Oh boy, we are having a 'Vee Dubs at the Drive in' night in November, over here in southwest WA. This movie would be perfect for a night like that. I wonder if it's possible to arrange.

    THE STORY OF THE VEHICLE THAT BECAME AN ICON

    “This is the definitive VW Bus movie.” – Mike Steinberg, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival Director
    http://www.busmovie.com
    Anyone who has ever driven a Volkswagen Bus already knows that it's a nostalgic tale of freedom, love, friendship, breakdowns and adventure.

    "The Bus" playfully explores how a post-WWII German utility vehicle evolved into a cultural icon that represents freedom and the open road; defining and connecting generations of fun lovers everywhere. Spanning more than 60 years, beginning in Germany with the vehicle's creation, into a wild ride that changes the world forever, “The Bus” is an adventure from beginning to end. From Woodstock to Hollywood, Burning Man to Baja, people from all walks of life share their stories and passion in "The Bus.” The resulting film is a poetic journey that captures the strange magic of this iconic vehicle known to people everywhere.
    THE BUS will be released on DVD August 1, 2012.

    Bennyharp and I watched this a few weeks ago. Don't know how he got it.....

    I thought it wasn't too bad. Definately worth a watch and they cover T3's pretty well also.

    Personally I found there were a few bits that dragged a little but worth it

    Just my 2c anyway :)

    My copy arrived last week and watched it on the weekend.
    Enjoyable little flick, well worth it.
    Could have had a little more history and development

    Hmmm...dunno, surely they must have made some accommodation for the hearing impaired. Probably best to send the production company an email and ask.
    Try this email address. She is the associate producer of the movie at Firewater Film Company.
