Shortly after our campaign and during we received some press.  We wanted to share these articles with you, they’re like the DVD extras before the actual DVD is finished.  We are grateful & humbled by their interest in our story.  Please enjoy the articles and disregard the typo from El Tecolote that cites Oscar Gomez as Francisco Dominguez, we have brought this to El Tecolote’s attention.

Dear Backers and Friends,

Greetings from post-Hurricane Irene land.  All is well.  We wanted to tell you about the progress of Radio Bandido.  We are still standing tall and very busy working on Oscar’s story.  On September 16th, a version of the documentary will be shown as part of SVA’s MFA Social Documentary showcase in New York City.  The amount of seats are limited, but please contact us if you are interested in attending.

We are both very fortunate and grateful for the amount of love and support that was shown throughout our campaign. Even though we did not reach our goal, we were able to raise money through the LUCHA Foundation and our blog.  We need to express our deepest appreciation to those who showed their support by writing us a check or following us to PayPal:

  • The Gomez Family
  • Sandra Navarro
  • Margie Berta-Avila
  • Emily Claassen
  • Mario Torres
  • Norma Trujillo & Family
  • Judith & Alejandro Segura Mora
  • Miguel Capacete
  • Sylvia J. Navarro
  • Galeria de la Raza – Roots & Re-Visioning
  • Teresa Basilio
  • Joyce J Lu
  • Noah Smith
  • Rosario Cervantes
  • Yuki Kokubo
  • Sam Crawford
  • Lizzette Yañez
  • Jeffrey Perlstein
  • Sam Green
  • Rosalee Gonzalez
  • Claire Tran

Together we’ve raised over $2,000.  Although this is only about 10% of our initial goal, it feels like a million dollars to know people believe in Radio Bandido and Oscar’s story enough to not let anything get in their way of contributing.  Again, we thank you.

Later on this month we’ll launch our second round of fundraising efforts and definitely will keep you up to date with the latest news.  In the meantime, stay up with us by visiting us here, Twitter, FacebookYouTube or drop us a note at radiobandido@gmail.com.

Last, a very special Radio Bandido “Q-vo” to Osiris and the YCM crew in Santa Bruta who captured beautiful underwater footage for our film, “¡Gracias mí chavos!”  The Independent in Santa Barbara ran another story about Oscar and El Tecolote in San Francisco wrote an article about the challenges of making Radio Bandido, watcha:


Enjoy your Labor Day and more importantly, have a labor free weekend.
