A Film by Brenton Richardson

Wagonmasters Trailer

Sam Smartt and Chris Zaluski, classmates and friends of the Coffin Cruisin’ filmmakers produced an awesome documentary about the history of the station wagon and the people who love them. Their film Wagonmasters had been picking up a lot of positive attention, being accepted into some great film festivals and gathering a following by the time Brenton and Joe were in downtown Winston-Salem on a fateful night when a big, black, skull emblazoned hearse rumbled by. While Wagonmasters and Coffin Cruisin’ are very different projects, their film and its successes likely played a part in helping to plant the seeds that grew into Coffin Cruisin’.

In 2013, Sam and Chris won 2nd place in the Documentary Division of the 34th Annual College Television Awards (AKA the Student Emmys).
