An educational & impactful series taking you through 22 countries by tandem bike while inviting local Africans to join us!
*Versión en español más abajo* *Version française est en dessous*
Dear Friends, Family and Supporters,
Thank you for being part of one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences of my life. This campaign tested my faith, resolve and determination in so many ways. In the end, we did not reach the intended goal so none of our 174 backers' pledges turned into a formal contributions. Nobody’s credit cards were charged a dime.
But I’m happy to announce that the entire process shone essential light on where we need to go next on this journey to find the best opportunities to share our stories worldwide. Please join us as we continue moving forward with a restructured release strategy and new funding campaign. We would like to invite you to check it out at http://bit.ly/peace-africa-v2 and consider joining this wild ride as a beloved backer.
You can always get the latest at www.peacepedalers.org as well. Thanks for your support!

Now about the project...
After riding a tandem bicycle around the world over the last 8 years through 80 countries I’ve returned home with compelling stories to tell. I invited total strangers from all walks of life to become friends and join the journey. This simple invitation alone, one of openness, trust and acceptance, combined with the innocent power of a bicycle, became the magical ingredients of human connection. I’d like to share these stories with the world, starting with my first release Peace Pedalers: Africa.
If you are like most people, just the word Africa conjures up images of starvation, war, disease and violence. Before my 22-country cycling expedition through the continent I was also ignorant and fearful--mostly due to so many negative news reports from the mainstream media. But I faced my fears and made a journey to see Africa with my OWN two eyes.
While riding my tandem bike and inviting dozens of locals to join the journey a burning desire grew inside to finally educate the world on the TRUTH of how fascinating the cultures are, how interesting the history is, how amazing the music sounds, how beautiful the landscapes are and, most of all, how kind, loving and caring the African people are. Help us release a fun, exciting, colorful, insightful, educational and progressive series that will forever change the way to world thinks when they hear the word AFRICA.
If you have not made your pledge yet, below you'll find some steps to better understand our project. Join us!
1) PRODUCTION PROGRESS: Below you’ll find rough trailers for all 12 episodes! We have taken raw footage and digitized it, logged it, stored it on 56 Terabytes of RAID storage. Scroll down and see the rough trailers we cut from our assembly edits of each episode that are ready for editing & our return trip to Africa for pickup shots. Check the FAQ below for a full budget too.
2) OUR TEAM: I’m the producer and host. I eat, sleep and breath this project. But it’s not just me. Research our team like our Executive Producer Les Stroud, six-time Gemini nominated TV host and producer of Survivorman. Check out the demos of our editors, composer, graphics team. Scroll all the way down to see them and their websites under the rewards section.
3) COMMITMENT & INTEGRITY: This is a 10-year project that has taken Peace Pedalers through over 80 countries! We feel we’ve proven our integrity, passion and commitment to getting the core messages of connection, compassion, trust and tolerance out to the world. We are also committed to using the series release as a fundraising vehicle to help health and education causes in Africa. Check our projects at www.peacepedalers.org/projects.html and surf the Peace Pedalers site from there. Below is a short 2-minute explanation on how we'll use the release of the TV series as a fundraising vehicle for philanthropic causes and the impacts we'll make:
4) THE FUTURE: Peace Pedalers: Africa is just the first series! After we kick- start this first series for Africa, in both English and Spanish (see Spanish below), we’ll move into series for Europe, Latin America and more to make massive impacts worldwide! So your backing of our first series is key to proliferate positive, progressive messages to a world that needs them NOW more than ever.
If after the video and some research you still don’t feel comfortable making a pledge to back this project, please email me directly and I’m happy to answer any questions. Whatever you do, don't just do nothing. Remember, no pledge is too small (or too big!) so if you want to see these stories yourself and have them released, please make your pledge right now to the right.
Thanks for your support and we look forward to an exciting adventure together!

Jamie y el equipo de Peace Pedalers
Pour la majorité des personnes, au mot “Afrique” s'associent des images de famine, de guerre, de maladie et de violence. Avant ma traversée de ce continent, j'étais aussi ignorant et plein de préjugés négatifs, principalement à cause des informations véhiculées par les médias. Mais, j'ai décidé d'affronter mes craintes et de voir l'Afrique de mes PROPRES yeux.
Au fil de la route, un intense désir a grandi en moi de montrer au monde la VERITE, comme les cultures sont fascinantes, comme l'histoire est intéressante, comme la musicalité y est incroyable, comme les paysages sont beaux et, plus que tout, comme les peuples d'Afrique sont bons, affectueux et attentionnés. Aider à nous à stopper (ou lutter contre) l'ignorance en publiant une séries de supports ludiques, amusants, colorés, éducatifs et innovants pour changer la vision que le monde tend à associer au mot Afrique.

Just head to http://bit.ly/ks-pics and pick your print, send us the photo name from the information drop down, the size you want, if you want it signed or personalized and you are set! For $10 you'll get a 5x7, for $25 an 8x10 and $40 for 8x12. Includes shipping in USA. Add $7 for worldwide shipping.
This would be my first question if I was asked to back a dream like this. So here goes:
a) THE BUDGET: Our bare-bones budget is $76,750. By the time Kickstarter and Amazon Payments takes their hefty share of the $85,500 from our backers we're left with about $76,750 plus or minus a few bucks.
b) THE RETURN TO AFRICA: As one man I could not get all the shots I really needed to create a world class series. Between riding, filming, eating and trying to enjoy the connections with the people I missed 20-25% of the shots necessary to transition the series and keep each episode flowing smoothly. I also could need nature shots, time lapses, close-ups/wides/longs shots, followup interviews with riders and projects, and more. This will be 6 weeks of hard core traveling with the bike, 2 guys, cameras and lean travel for a total of $14,000.
c) THE STUDIO: I rent a very basic studio where I churn and burn many hours in front of the monitors and laptop editing myself and leading the team efforts. I'll need a full year of cranking to put all this together right so 12 months at $250/month = $4,200
d) EDITING: This is where more than half of the budget is slated for. Between myself as editor, Robin as senior editor and Bill as supervising editor we've got a bare bones $45,000 slated for countless hours of editing that needs to go down. Les is not being paid from this budget but is hoping for the long term payoff as Executive Producer and he'll be involved in this entire process reviewing cuts and guiding the story.
e) MUSIC AND SOUND: Zain is and award winning composer and a genius. He's willing to work for far less if need be to get this series completed. Together with our editing team we'll get the music and sound totally dialed in for each episode, feature and music compilation.
f) TITLES AND GRAPHICS: Graphics will play a good part of each episode. We're allocating $6,800 to do the bumpers, mapping, graphics and effects for the release. Again, the graphics team we have (Kalin and Adad) are willing to work with passion to get this done right at a rates far lower than their commercial clients.
g) BOX SET PRODUCTION: We'll spend $2,250 in creating our limited release box sets for our Kickstarter supporters including materials, design, printing and duplication.
So this is the bare minimum we can work with to make this happen. So make your pledge and let's do it!
Small, with a thin Sharpie.
Some networks will not want to buy a full series but will pick up a feature length film for their viewers. Our goal is to have something for as many channels as possible to get the messages out to as many as possible. The feature will be the "best of best"--truly epic. As for the music release, it's already shot and all we'll do is find the best and add it in as a bonus. So get the box set as a timeless escape to Africa anytime!
If I don't reach the goal I get nothing and you your pledge is canceled. Your credit card. will not be charged. It's an all or nothing campaign.
Check out my website www.peacepedalers.org and the trailers we already cut. We are on our way. Les Stroud and our team are all in it to win it. I'm sure you'll see my passion, committment and abilities to follow through with a little bit of research. I have zero doubts that I'll release these stories worldwide. But we need to fund this campaign first so please make your pledge :)
Yes. It may look different, have a Nat Geo or other channel logo on it, but you'll get it. I promise. There is good news and bad news to getting picked up by a network. The good news is they invest in the show so the quality will be far greater than going solo. The bad news is that they will not allow the DVD or BluRay until after they show it a while. So if we do strike a deal then go watch it first on TV then get your backup copy :) Either way, you are going to take an intimate trip through the continent by backing us.
This is not a feature documentary on one DVD. This is 12 hours shot over two years in 22 countries. It's lots of editing and work to produce this. Not to mention the feature film and music compilation. We're already 18 months into the post production process. You get 10x the entertainment and enjoyment but not at 10x the price. I see the release as a great value and I hope you do too after you take this into account.
Yes. We have 85% of the material shot already from the 2-year trip. The only filming left to do is the pickup-shot trip to Africa in the budget. Then it's a big post production effort and we're already 18 months into it with our own funds. We're simply running out of money and need the final Kickstart to keep us rolling for another year of intensive editing.
We'd like to have much more. We will be looking for additional funding from networks, distributors and potential private investors over the next year as well. We can finish this for $75,000 but the final product will be much better when we find more than bare bones budget. We will. But in case we don't, we'll make it happen with this $75K
There are distributors who work with networks around the world. They have heard our concept, seen and liked the samples of our material, and can find a home for it worldwide. However, we have to deliver them a finished series. This is where you come in. Because we have independently produced the series we can offer the series for sale for a much lower cost than if a network produced it themselves (Jamie did the shooting/travel, sponsors paid for equipment/expenses, the Kickstarter community paid for post production) so this will ease the distribution process.
