We are writting to you from Ethiopia. As you said, there are many people out in the world seeking adventure, but most have no equipment, money or film experience to warrant the production of a film. It's great what you are doing.
We are a guy and a girl in our 30's, French/ American, who left France on Feb 21st, 2003 to cross the African continent on two BMW motorcycles. Our route has been Tunisia, Algeria, Niger, Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, Sudan, and Ethiopia. We will continue through Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and South Africa,(maybe Namibia). If all goes well, we'll keep going....South America - Australia - S.E. Asia - India - Middle East - Europe.
We have a website at http://photobiker.com
containing journals, photography, maps, etc. to give you a better look at who we are and what we are doing. Let us know if you are interested in talking further. Our contact information is on the web site.
Best of luck with your film making.
