An Inside Look at the Custom Van Scene

Vannin' DocumentaryThis week on Director’s Cut, I sit down with van enthusiasts and filmmakers Nick Nummerdor and Andrew Morgan to discuss their documentary Vannin. Nick and Andrew co-directed this feature about vans and the people who love them, people who take van customization very seriously. This directing tandem has really captured the culture and artistry of this hobby.

Vannin’ has no shortage of characters. The film is packed with freewheelers who are thrilled to talk about their hobby over a cold beer in the hot sun. Nick and Andrew have gotten hooked on the culture themselves. They have been to several rallies and vouch for how much fun they can be.

This is a nice little film about a fairly unknown American subculture that I had no idea existed. Nick and Eric are fun to interview, and the energetic young filmmakers have many other projects in the works. Vannin’ is a fun watch that might just put you in a vannin’ state of mind. Hope you can tune in to Director’s Cut this Friday night starting at 9:30 p.m. on Wisconsin Public Television.
