Career Courier

Urban bike messengers tend to weave in and out of traffic like two-wheeled worker bees, anonymously focusing on delivering documents and packages around the city as quickly as possible.

For most motorists, they’re a blur of spokes and chain-stained leg muscles. Filmmaker Kenton Hoppas wants to change that.

Hoppas, a formerSan Diegobike courier, has wrapped up production of  “Career Courier,” an 86-minute documentary on the careers — careers? — of bicycle couriers.

“We filmed from March to March, 2010 to 2011, in five cities,” Hoppas said in a phone interview with Hard Drive. “One of the stars of the film isPortlandcourier James Adamson.”
