About

I am going to make a documentary that follows the path I traveled that led to me being kidnapped and robbed in Romania. I will be taking a single HD camera with me and i will try to get to know locals of any area i am in and engage in the community and hopefully be able to bum a night or 2 on someones couch. I would like this to be a completely interactive trip by taking suggestions and tips from those who are following. This is going to be a trip where I am hoping to find the trust in others (and myself) that I lost the first time I went.

My name is Tim and after traveling for a month i found myself in Romania after the recommendation from a friend who was staying in Transylvania. After spending 20 hours getting from Prague to Bucharest I found myself being confronted by a man with a knife who took me to a marked taxi. There was a driver waiting and upon getting in the car I realised they didn't use this for a taxi... After being driven for half an hour the driver stopped and this pointed a gun at me and then I was driven to various ATM machines and was drained of alot of money and left on the boarder of Romania and Bulgaria. After getting back home i lost all faith in humans and lost as much faith in myself.. I have never felt as though I have gotten back to normal. The plan is to make my way back and follow my same path and document my trip but this time i want to make it to Transylvania. I feel like i need to do this just to get on with the next part of my life.

Risks and challenges

1. Visas and permission to film this documentary in Romania - This shouldn't be too much of an issue to sort out. After a bit of research I found out it is easy enough to obtain the visa but it just might take me a month from applying.

2. Equipment - I am planning on buying a decent mid range HD held. nothing too fancy and small enough to be able to carry anywhere.

3. Editing and completing film - I have only basic editing skills so i am going to need to find someone to do this for me to keep the quality of the film as high as possible.

4. Selling the film - I don't expect to be a millionaire from this film. I wouldn't care if i didn't make a cent but it would be cool to see it being shown on tv or cinema.

5. Overcoming fear and anxiety from my previous experience in order to not only make a good movie but better myself as a person.
