1. This marks the last part to the film's Making-of series, it is a look back on the film overall, and what I've learned after years and years of fighting to finish FOR THOUSANDS OF MILES.

    Sixty-four was the exact number of days spent on the road during principal photography; there was a time when that number, 64, dominated the life of this project, filming a nearly 5,000 mile bicycle journey was a massive undertaking, but when compared to the struggles of post-production that soon followed the road, it was a breeze.

  2. An introduction to the film’s three crew members: Olan, Olivier, and Jef; who all flew out from Belgium to work on this small, indie production. My time on the road with them taught me so, so much… It was an experience I will never forget – and never really know how to properly put into words.

  3. Admittedly, this was an extremely difficult part for Amanda and I to write, record and edit; it is, by far, the most vulnerable of the making-of series. Still, despite the challenges in not only creating, but especially in releasing this, the history Amanda and I shared had a strong impact during principal photography.

  4. If you're new to the project, you can catch up here hi.projectpedal.com

    writen by amanda: so this is part 3. initially we planned on making this three parts. first the story of our break-up, followed by the story of our relationship, and ending with the decision for me to continue working on pedal. a few days ago we decided to end it after the 2nd part. mostly because it was getting too long. we plan on adding the 3rd part to a future episode, most likely the next episode.

    i have to say that mike and i are both very worried about this episode. i am normally pretty shy and get very awkward in front of the camera.. and although i have a lot of face time in this episode, that's not what i'm worried about. i'm happy to say.. after this episode, i think i'm finally starting to get over that and warm up to the camera. i'm pretty happy with my camera time and our voice overs. so, no.. that's not what worries me.

    i can't speak for mike and i'm not sure exactly what his worries are, probably something like, people won't like this episode as much as the last two. but for me, i think of this episode as the story of one of the most important times in my life and i just want it to be perfect, and i don't think that it is. i'm afraid it was rushed, i'm afraid things were over looked, i'm afraid it might be boring.

    so.. that's that. i hope i'm wrong. i look forward to your honest comments.

  5. Meet Larry McKurtis and Jayson Hale, two life-long best friends setting off on a 5,000 mile undertaking between the Pacific and Atlantic coast. This making-of goes all the way back to the early casting-call that was released, and how Larry McKurtis was so unique and rare in his reasons for wanting to leave everything behind.

64 Days

mike ambs

64 days was the exact length of Pedal's production, the number of days we were out on the road. These episodes are short narratives about that experience of making our first film...
