Slow Road: A new documentary travel series


Slow Road is about making the past live again through engagement travel. The grassroots documentary travel series focuses on the beautiful and historic towns that are found when we take the roads less traveled here in New York State. Co-producers Benjamin Woelk (Associate Director, Friends of the Garden Aerial/VP of the Western Erie Canal Alliance) and Jason Darnieder (President of Flower City Media, Inc.) are bringing the viewer into Main Streets, neighborhoods, and historic buildings that we may have never known existed and creating an intimate look at these places. Their hope is that this exposure will lead to people visiting these amazing places. Click here to learn more and support Slow Road’s Kickstarter campaign. (Digital downloads are available for a $5 contribution and DVDs are available for $25).
