Project Pedal - engaging transmedia documentary
Mike Ambs and Amanda Walker, are the creative force behind ProjectPedal.com, a site which documents Mike and Amanda’s five year struggle to produce a feature-length documentary about a cross-country bike trip from Anacortes, Washington to Bar Harbor, Maine which will ultimately be titled “For Thousands of Miles.”
The film is beautifully told and exquisitely shot. What's remarkable about this project is that it plays host to a big idea, communicate the importance of wanting to tell and story and using every means necessary to tell it -- even when you have little money. It proves that compelling storytelling can live within a variety of media.
