I have made a few posts on here regarding a planned trip taking place, the responses have been extremely useful in the planning and preparation I thought this would be the best place to offer an opportunity to join
I am directing a documentary entitled Sahara "the truth" which will present, in essence, what adventure travel is all about and what it is like from the ground up on a realistic budget. This is the second series, the first being Kilimanjaro "THe truth" currently being hosted on the adventure company.com website. We have a fantastic camera man who has worked on 3 of the Harry potter films and a number of documentaries who will also be taking part in the editing process and we are hoping to enter this one into a few film festivals when complete.
Although the documentary is based on the journey of 2 main cast myself, a musician (Intro Page - Rex Pearson Guitarist For Hire
) and my partner in the first series i have decided that it would be be great to fill the team with a member from this website. We are looking for someone with experience, particularly the border crossings involved see itenary below, ability to talk the language would be fantastic and some knowledge of car repairs in the desert would be useful! also experience or contacts to help with the selling of vehicles in Mali Bomako. Your role would be an advisory one rather than on the film but would be fully credited in the film which you will receive a copy of before release, as well as a few cameo appearances such as the title sequence. All basic equipment will be provided Inc vehicles, camping set up etc if there is anyone on here who would be keen to join this journey let me know. You will simply be joining the cast and crew for this journey and helping to sort the crossings
Basic itenery is as follows but a much more detailed one can be provided to anyone who is interested in this journey
London, France, Spain, morocco, western sahara, Mauritania, Mali sell vehicles�*
Costs to this final member of the crew are as follows:
As you will be taking part in the journey you will need to be ok with camping up with cast and crew in most countries, although your own tent is provided.�*
This is not a paid role but more a "coming along for thr ride". You will need to cover your own visa, an equal share of food/fuel/water cost and your 1 way ticket home from bomako. That's it, a significantly cheaper way of doing a trip like this as all equipment are already provided.�*
Date: we will be departing around the 1st august 2011 and expecting to do the trip in 21 days to allow for some sights along the way.
If there is anything more you would like to know please ask. I would also like to invite anyone already going a similar way at that time to tag on to our convoy if you would like, providing you don't mind being filmed
Look forward to hearing from you
Hey all, i had posted on here a little while ago that i was doing the atlantic route as part of a documentary and its almost time to depart!. We will be setting off on the weekend of the 1st of August from Peterborough in the UK.
I just wanted to put this post up to
1) keep people updated on the progress as it happens as it could prove useful for people travelling after myself and the crew, im also going to try and use twitter as well to keep people informed on my progress @rexpearson if you would like to follow
2) If anyone will be in the area Uk France, Spain, Morroco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Mali in August who might like to convoy up or meet us along the way or join us for one of the legs we would love for people to join in the fun. Motorcyclist welcome to partner up and we have room for some of your gear too
A final note, there is a space in 1 of the vehicles for an additional member of the team if anyone reading this might like to join us then please contact me on here and i will get back to you.
Thanks to everyone on here who have provided priceless advise, really looking forward to visiting this part of the world
