      Is there any chance of getting some english subtitles - it's really hard to follow some of the people in the movie if you are not a native speaker. :)

      After watching it two times i think you guys did a great job and the movie is really-really inspiring.

      I just hope for some subtitles now!

      Just watched the film and haven't read through all the comments below, so this is just my thoughts out of the gate. i did enjoy and the film and am glad I backed it. There were some great profiles and great people. Jonathan Fields story was particularly inspiring, I did find the doc suddenly ended, really quickly at the end without much of a take away lesson or story. i also found that although its great to profile all these people, how did they get to where they wanted to go? Much of the interviews were on the build up and then, nothing. No, "this is what I did to get there" or "this is what my message to people who want to change is". i really expected the first half to be interviews on "i'm miserable" and then the second half the real value which would have been "this is what i did" and "this is what you need to do"

      I'm nearly there on my dream so this doc helped keep me going but for people still stuck in that rut, feeling trapped, i don' t know if it speaks "you can do it by doing this" or just lets them know there are plenty of other people hating their lives in this world so you may as well keep joining them.

      While I agree with many comments/suggestions (too short, documentary about a documentary, etc), I found it quite inspiring and supportive. Just before this movie was released, I quit my research job to pursue teaching. I needed that support to believe in my dream and bravely embark on a new start. Thanks for sharing your dreams and your inspiration!

      Creator Crank Tank Studios on August 14, 2012

      Hey, everyone - thanks for all the feedback (positive and negative). The far majority of responses are positive, but we do value criticism too. We made tough choices (and thought hard about them) when having Grant's story carry the film - and not making it longer. Ultimately, we chose what we thought would make for the best story and the biggest impact for someone that needed help/inspiration. We wanted to tell a powerful story in the shortest time frame possible (no padding or fluff for extra minutes). While we realize not everyone will like every choice - we appreciate you taking the time to respond. For those who were inspired by the movie, please keep sending your stories and actions as a result of the movie! :)

      Creator Lew Ayotte on August 14, 2012

      Hey guys, got to watch the movie last night... couple of things:

      1) You have a bunch of grammatical errors in the end when talking about the creators (I didn't notice any during the bits about interviewees).
      2) There seems to already be disappointment about the length of the film. I think it could have been 30 minutes longer with more video of the interviewees talking about the positive changes they've made in their lives to write their own "script".

      For a first documentary, I think you guys did really well and you obviously struck a chord with people on kickstarter who are struggling with the pressures of fitting into societies prebuilt script. By the way, the fact that this was a journey also about the director wasn't bad as some people are saying. I think that was a good concept, but I agree that it felt like it was missing something.

      Why haven't I received a link to view the movie? Others have seen it and there's a link to a website for Kickstarter backers - yet I have not been given a login. Am I missing something?

    14. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Dave P on August 13, 2012

      I was impressed and got that everyone was passionate about the documentary but I have to say I was overall disappointed. Firstly, for a documentary it's very short. At 68 minutes long it's just not enough. Surely there was a load more people interviewed? I mean the 8 mins at the end is mostly credits!! Secondly, (like someone has said here before me) it does feel like a documentary about a documentary. It feels like a lot of the real meat of the journey got cut.

      I did get a few useful ideas from this film but I can't see myself ever re-watching it I'm afraid. Here's hoping an extended cut comes out in the near future.

      2/5 from me.

    15. Missing_small

      Creator Stephen Greene on August 12, 2012

      I agree with the previous post.

      I was hoping for lots of stories from inspiring individuals who had struggled with, and overcome, the pressures put on them to lead conventional lives, not a documentary about making a documentary - it seems you got everyone's backing to go on a road trip and make a documentary about a road trip.

      Whilst I understand that the story of the film being made was also a story of breaking through convention and fear, the fact that the story of making the documentary seems to be the majority of the film seems to me to border on self obsession.

      As the previous comment states "What a waste".

    16. Missing_small

      Creator Chris Mack on August 12, 2012

      Such a great concept. I'm disappointed by the movie. Everything related back to Adam (or whoever). Honestly - what a wasted opportunity. You could have done so much with this concept, and you chose to make it all about you. What a waste.

      Creator Alexander on August 11, 2012

      Just Watched it, Awesome movie! Really inspirational, will be showing to the rest of my family :)

      I was hoping it would have been a bit longer though, at only 68 minutes, it was short and powerful, but I saw there was a tonnn of other people you interviewed (3500 hrs it stated in the movie?) An extended version, or even some shorts of others stories would be great I Think :)!?
