Trail Notes is a collection of stories capturing the lifestyles of passionate mountainbikers from the Southern Hemisphere Mecca of Rotorua New Zealand and the infamous trails of the Whakarewarewa forest. The film follows four unique individuals and showcases their stories of how mountainbiking captivated their lives and what has drawn them to the sport and intoxicating location of the forest. Each of these interconnected stories creates a tapestry of the local scene that mimics the winding trails of the forest. These stories of personal battles, commitment and passion to the sport of mountainbiking, illustrate both the individual and collective culture that these trails breed.
After a successful national premiere tour in New Zealand the film has now been released digitally on iTunes globally, debuting at Number 1 on the New Zealand and Australian iTunes movie charts for documentary. At the time of print Trailnotes retains its Number 1 documentary status in the New Zealand iTunes store and is sitting at Number 4 documentary in the Australian iTunes store. However the most exciting outcome for the filmmakers is that the film currently sits at Number 11 and Number 18 in the Sports charts for the Canadian and United States iTunes stores. Not bad for a little mountainbike film from Rotorua, New Zealand!
