LATEST NEWS Please be advised that in our continuing attempt to cut our losses this website and the AuroraDigitalArts domain will be going away sometime this year (2016).
First of all let me say "thank you" to all of you that were so generous with your "tips" last year and in previous years too. The problem is getting to be the amount of labor that is going into this thing. As most of you know the winter is when we make custom DVDs for the racers. Last winter (2014/2015) we started working on racers projects on Sept 2nd of 2014 and didn't finish until April 21st of 2015. During that time I averaged 4 hours a day 7 days a week which came to a total of 924 man hours. Pretty good for a business that costs us money out of pocket to run. That's really not a concern. The fact is that there is no time left to work on the movie we would like to make about the history of drag racing in Alaska. It's beginning to look like we will have to decide which is more important, the movie or continuing to provide custom DVDs for the racers. It has been suggested that maybe we should just make a year end compilation disc with a little bit of everything on it. Sounds good except that in the past when we made them they did not sell. Less than a dozen every year that we made them. So obviously something has got to change.
We have finished building a little 15 minute movie to celebrate the Golden Anniversary of Alaska Raceway Park. It is now on YouTube HERE.
We are still looking for old movies and photos of drag racing ANYWHERE in Alaska, the Kenai, the interior, Anchorage (the short lived drag strip and legal authorized street racing).
"ALASKA RACEWAY PARK - THE MOVIE" is available online HERE. It's a 70 minute long compilation movie about drag racing in Alaska.
