We will be meeting up with Joe, Amy (Joe's girlfriend), Joe's friends, and Greg (a mutual friend of Joe and I) later this evening. Tonight we will be camping out in Kalispell, getting our groceries for the trip and then tomorrow we will be heading out to East Glacier (Many Glacier) where we will do our first night of camping before Joe's cycle tour!
I have had quite a few busy weeks getting prepared for this trip. I am actually only in the pre-production quarter for my film so I've had to do a lot of juggling between scriptwriting, building the Kickstarter project to help with funding, and plan the trip out here in MT! Among packing, testing all of my camera/audio equipment and running last minute errands, I managed to launch my Kickstarter project campaign last night! I launched it under the working title, "life, cycles: A real-life fiction film" Please check out the introductory video I created to help aid in the funding! I chose the working title, "life, cycles." for a couple of reasons... 1. just like the definition for a "life cycle" Joe has gone through a series of changes recently, but life is moving on and he is growing stronger through his challenges. and 2. "cycles" relates to the hand cycle tour he is out here doing in MT. I hope you can take a look at the project page I created. :) I would really appreciate any support you have in making this film to its greatest potential!
That is all I have for now! I will write back whenever I find internet... I hear both internet and reception will be hard to come by. Thank you to everyone who helped me get here! I greatly appreciate all of your love and support!
I will leave you with a few iPhone stills I took on my way here.
