 It was sweet guys! Thanks for putting all the effort in!
One quick question, with the fact your airing the film for free do you make your money purely from sponsors or are there other means of income?
I imagine the all the camera gear, editing and employees come at a price! Just curious.

 Of course if that is confidential business matter no worries! Razz

 No problem answering to that!
For this film there were no sponsors and no support, all the help we had were from the friends we made during the journey. It is a good question asking, why all that for free? Well, I think we all have dreams and need to fight for them, my dream is to work being eable to combine my passions, and that is just possible if you start projects like this. It is just promotion. Wink I really appreciate your comment Massini64!

 Really liked! I just wanted to watch 10 min but I couldn't stop watching and ended up watching everything!! Inspired me to do the same thing this summer! the film opening is great, while people are answering you come to realize that riding is all of what they said combined !! sound track is well selected. at the end of the movie you would have saw all happy emotions of a human a laugh,a friendship, the joy of a fruit, joy of taking a fresh shower ... great work!
