Rally driving is so reliably mesmerizing that we never lack for viewers when we post rallying footage, especially when raw engine noises accompany the raw talent. Yet we rarely come across videos that take a deeper look at who races, the private lives of privateers and the urge to 'run what you brung' through quiet forests with few spectators and less money. Motorsports filmmaker Matt Johnston wants to change that.

Johnston has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for Easier Said than Done, a full-length feature on what might be the dirtiest side of rallying – finding the money and staying in the game. He isn't trying to fund the whole project itself, he says it's going to happen anyway. What he wants is more capital to hire equipment and crew.

Follow the jump for the trailer and check out his Kickstarter page for a breakdown of the project.
