1. 64 Days, a Making of - Part 3/5 (Ext)


    from mike ambs Added 2,508 28 35

    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.

    • For Thousands of Miles - Teaser 05


      from mike ambs Added 3,562 56 51

      Teaser from the feature length documentary For Thousands of Miles. This day was a really long, slow climb for Larry - the hills just kept winding their way through the evergreens and after every turn, was another upward slope. We pulled off the road after a while and walked around on a hill-side. Where we took this shot, and tons of other ones. We used all of our equipment on that hill: our Fx1 (with the 35kit), the Z1u, and Olivier's 16mm. It was a beautiful spot - and I hope to go back and sit there one day... just take in the view :) http://FToMfilm.com

      • post production - week 45


        from mike ambs Added 599 7 15

        Amanda and I had another Thursday meeting - we worked on Episode 9, and recorded some VO for the end of 8. Re-wrote a large block of the 9 script to include things I'd left out. Picked out some music. And decided on the next teaser. Moving along. We can't wait to release the next episode. I didn't realize how much I miss that feeling of excitement from the first few waves of reactions. http://hi.projectpedal.com http://blog.projectpedal.com

          Teaser from the feature length documentary For Thousands of Miles. This was the last time I laid in the grass. My head closest to a tree, my feet pointing towards the river. Watching the leaves dance back and forth in the wind. Enjoying the cloudless blue sky. The warm sun burning up the cotton in the air. We were still in Glacier Park, Montana. One of the most heartbreakingly beautiful places I've ever seen... http://FToMfilm.com

            Teaser from the feature length documentary For Thousands of Miles. This is Larry. This is somewhere between point A and point B. Where ever it is... I miss it. I miss kneeling on-top of the van, working the camera-crane, watching Larry push through the wind. Knowing that every mile meant something to him... something people wouldn't see passing by in their cars. http://FToMfilm.com

                Teaser from the feature length documentary For Thousands of Miles. We waited at the highest switch-back in Cascades National Park for Larry to pass and ride down into the valley. We took a lot of footage from this ledge, it was a very beautiful spot to spend an hour. http://FToMfilm.com

                      If you're new to the project, you can catch up here http://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.
