Reveal the Path is a beautiful, visual exploration of grand adventures by bike; exploring worldly landscapes, wide-ranging cultures and what it means to live an inspired life - however humble or extravagant. Filmed across four continents and featuring Tour Divide race legends Matthew Lee & Kurt Refsnider, Reveal the Path is guaranteed to ignite the dream in you.
We receive many comments on Ride the Divide's Facebook page (our previous project) about how the film has inspired them. These comments, in part, inspired us to produce Reveal the Path. If Ride the Divide stirred something inside you, wait till you see our new film Reveal the Path!
‘I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it’ --Rosalia de Castro
WHY KICKSTARTER? Our dear friend and international musical talent, Dominique Fraissard is busy creating an original soundtrack for Reveal the Path. We are raising these funds to allow Dominique and producing partner Syd Green to write, record, mix and master this authentically world flavored score for the film. Dominique has released 5 albums to critical acclaim, opened for Jack Johnson and other international acts and has two tracks in our previous film Ride the Divide - we couldn't be happier our paths crossed.
ONE OF A KIND REWARDS! We also wanted to use this Kickstarter campaign as a way to reward you for supporting us. Some of the gifts will only be available here.
WHY ARE YOU CREATING A BOOK? We feel a library quality hard bound book is a perfect item to compliment the film. The people, places & things we experienced on this adventure were absolutely amazing and this gives us another opportunity to share them with you. Here is a test sample of Morocco & Nepal.
WHEN AND WHERE CAN I SEE THE FILM? We are putting together a theatrical tour starting May/June. Keep an eye on our website for screening locations. The official DVD release will be August/September but you will get yours much earlier by supporting this campaign. We are also planning on Reveal the Path following the same distribution platforms as Ride the Divide: iTunes, Amazon, Netflix, OnDemand and possibly TV.
CAN WE RAISE MORE THAN OUR GOAL? YES! $10,000 is just a small piece of the remaining budget and Kickstarter allows us to raise as much as we can before the deadline. When we raise more than the $10,000 goal, the extra funds will allow:
- More stops on our theatrical tour and making sure they’re all fun-filled events. We'll have a good chance at having the full cast & crew at the bulk of these shows as well as Dominique playing a set of music if we raise enough to hit the road for "The Path Tour 2012". Let us know where you’d like us to bring the film.
- More resources for post production: sound mixing, graphic design & color grading the film.
- Creation of beautiful and engaging packaging for the DVD & soundtrack.
- More pages of inspiring photography in the Custom Hard Cover Book. Printing this book is pricey but it is going to be so worth it!
WHAT HAPPENS IF WE DON’T RAISE OUR GOAL? We won’t receive any of your pledges, WE LOSE IT ALL. Even if we are a dollar short by the end of our deadline. Help us prevent this from happening! Your pledges will not be charged until the end of the campaign & only if we meet our goal.
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO TO HELP? Please spread the word! Share the video & link to this Kickstarter campaign on your Facebook page and Twitter Feed. YOU'LL FIND THE LINKS UNDER THE VIDEO AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE. It's also a great way to receive some unique items only available during this campaign and in essence you're pre-ordering the DVD & soundtrack.
WHERE IS THE MOVIE TRAILER? We've decided to honor you, the Kickstarter supporter, as the first to see the trailer. At the end of this campaign you'll receive a password that only this special crowd will possess. You'll be able to view the trailer while others will have to wait weeks, maybe months...
I’VE MADE MY PLEDGE BUT WOULD LIKE TO ADD MORE? Wow - thank you!You can absolutely do this and we are all the more grateful for your generosity. If you want to change your incentive reward or increase your pledge amount, just sign into your Kickstarter account, go to our campaign page and you can enter a new amount and/or choose a new incentive.
WHAT IS THE GET LOST COLLECTIVE? We were introduced to this secret society while cycling across the Scottish Highlands. You too could become an honorary member of the Get Lost Collective - Scotland. By pledging at the $400 level. @GetLostCollect
