Year-round Metal Enjoyment, a ground-breaking freight train and graffiti documentary releases trailer, seeks crowd-sourced funding.
Year-round Metal Enjoyment is a documentary about New England, vandalism, and an obsession with trains. Following numerous freight train graffiti artists into a world of steel and spray, Year-round Metal Enjoyment explores the Northeast’s many ties to the railroad earth. With over two years of footage, more than a dozen interviews from artists, railfans and workers, Mint Films gives an in-depth look into this obscure and elusive world.
Heading into post-production, with a tentative release in the late fall of 2013. Mint Films is seeking donations and monetary support through the website.

ICHABOD is a master of American freight train graffiti: prolific, durable, and consistent. In a game where thousands of graffiti writers compete to make their names as densely distributed as possible throughout the nearly two million freight cars across North America, ICH has been among the very best and most successful. Ceaselessly repeating his ultra-legible signature piece, he makes two things as likely as can be in graffiti: that his name will be rolling on every train in North America, and that you, me, and anyone else will be able to read it.
“The appeal of a freight train for me was obvious from the start, because I was fascinated with freight trains before I started writing,” ICHABOD – or ICH, for short – explains….
