In mid december 2009, four guys set out on a motorcycle adventure around east/central Africa.
Eric Kreutter, Jared White, John Niemeyer, and Blake Gaskill.
During the trip we had little intention of creating a movie out of our experience, we simply carried a small (1st generation) Flip camera with us and documented moments that we thought we would like to look back on. We shared several pictures and videos along the way through a facebook group here: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=195360734886
When it was all said and done, we had probably 20 hours of small clips from the trip- most of them random, shaky and unusable… but there was some gold in there! We decided that this was an adventure worthy of sharing with the rest of the world, so we took it upon ourselves to sort through the amateur clips and arrange them (on iMovie ’07) into a sensical and chronological documentary of this life changing experience.
It took one year to finish… and on the eve of our one year trip anniversary, we are finally presenting it to the world. It may not be the most polished piece, but it does have heart…
