Automotive Tuning Culture Documentary

We Are Driven is a documentary film that has been 2 years in the making. From the East, to the West, Chicago, New England, Atlanta, Maryland, and more. In this documentary you will learn what it really takes to build a car, and all of the passion and struggles that go into it. You will get an inside look at the history of CANIBEAT, an inside look at the WEKFEST event series, hear from photographers, shop owners, and those that truly live by a eat, sleep, cars lifestyle. All interviews were recorded in real environment and not in a studio. This documentary sounds best through most sound systems. Laptop speakers, cheap earbuds, and basic tv speakers may make it sound a little weak.

The idea of We Are Driven first started in late 2011. We originally had planned on making a "demo reel" for 2011 and my friend said to me "You should make something different, and interview some of the people involved in the car scene." From there we decided to completely put the idea on pause for a year and a half, and tried to gain as much inside information from some of the top names in the game today.
