    Back Roads a Biking Documentarty

    I have recently completed a trip from WI to SC, that included me stopping in several other cities to film and rest making the Trip over 1300 miles. Continuing the trip from SC to Cali will take some help.

    Not intending to meet generous individuals inspired by just the biking from WI to SC. Only adds to the inspirational aspects of this story, in addition with the biking to a set destination only intending to document another's story that brings it's own inspiration.

    Some things this picture will consist of are time and trials of biking ling distances. Like what happens when you eat too much of the wrong kind of foods. Having to lie down on the side of the road and explain to an officer that you are having a bad introduction to a southern buffet. Or the terrors nature brings when on the road with no shelter; being blown off the road will be pursued with the thought of being taken away by a tornado. Will be the embracing moments that ensues the want to see more.

    With $2400 and some small promotion, this project will be one for the history books.What will happen at the end of this project will be a documentary. This movie will feature an inspirational story from 12 different towns across the country, along with my journey to getting there. It will be submitted to film festivals such as Sundance, I can be contacted through my social media sites, and email as well at SilentDMedia@gmail.com, for inquires on stories of interest that you believe should be in the film.
