The Mississippi Corpse - CyberCorpse 12

From: Andrea Mayo Humsthroughyou@aol.com

My friends Evan and Dave have been living on the Mississippi for a few years now, on a boat that they built themselves. They left their careers as train hoppers to build a raft which sank the first hour out on the river, taking everything they owned down with it. They built another one that worked and made their way south, the raft evolving into a full blown house boat. Evan and Dave are a bit of a folk legend around the country. Ask any freaky looking kid from Columbia, Missouri to New Orleans if they know a couple of funny haired punk rock kids who live on the river and they'll know ‘em. I've been wrangling them for a while-- they don't stay still-- and am slated to start shooting them next month. I am filmmaker and a student currently based in Rockport, Maine. As a project for my professional certificate degree here at the college I am perusing a documentary about these wily two and their lives on the river. Also, their community on the river, the barter and trade that goes on along the way, the way they live without much money and with a very supportive community-- many of whom are young makers of things-- artists, musicians, builders, farmers. I'm forwarding your shout out to Evan, thinking he'd be the one to know about any big events. Also, there is a film that was done about 5 years ago about a group of twenty-somethings floating some kind of ceremonial raft over a damn? Ring any bells? It was at the Ann Arbor Film Festival a while back... I'll see if I can come up with a name. It sounds like a fantastic project and I'd love to help in any way I can.
