"Pedal People" section from rough cut of "Death and Taxes" film

This is a section of the rough cut of a film I worked on from 2007 to 2009, called "Death and Taxes: Refusing To Pay For War."

This segment of the film focused on a war tax resister who runs a unique bicycle-powered business that was set up to make it easier for its employees to be war tax resisters.

My original vision for the film was for it to be an entertaining and compelling story that also clearly taught the viewer the basics of war tax resistance. (see this blog entry from an early editing stage in the project: steev.hise.org/content/trying-tell-story-war-tax-resistance ) Budgetary and other problems resulted in me being unable to finish the film, but a new editor, Carlos Steward, stepped in to complete it, though the result was quite different than what I'd planned.
