OUR FIRST WEBISODE

Comment

Happy Friday!

We started putting together short (weekly) webisodes using footage that won't make it to the final cut of the film (we have over 300 hours of footage!). It's just a taste of what's to come in 2014, a taste of what YOU have helped us achieve: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzG0xVSLdgw

This first episode takes place in Amherst, MA one month before the journey begins. We watch as Co-Cyclers Megan and Katie prepare their bikes for the many miles ahead.

Make sure to spread the word and "like" us on Facebook in order to stay up to date with the latest news and webisodes!

THANK YOU! and wishing you a happy and relaxing weekend ahead. 

- Emma & the To The Moon team

ONE MONTH LEFT

Comment

there is one month to go, over a thousand miles to cycle, and a whole lot of co-ops to visit! we are so proud of this project and incredibly grateful for the lessons that the past two months have gifted us. we have filmed the big climbs, the flat plains, the mosquitoes, the hottest heat waves as well as the struggles and insights that each of us have encountered. co-cycle is unlike anything else. It has changed the way we think about filmmaking, our future and ourselves. this is education in action. thank you for your ongoing support! we could not have done this without you! 

massachusetts or bust!

HALF WAY THERE

Comment

Co-Cycle and the To The Moon film crew have made it half way across the country! Although we still have half the country and months of post-production ahead, it is apparent in the incredible footage and experience that this is and will continue to be a huge success. We could not have done it without each one of you, THANK YOU! 

You can learn more about what it is like making a film on the road for three months by visiting the director's blog: http://venaver.tumblr.com/

The International Day of Co-ops was on July 7th, and since Co-Cycle is an International Year of Co-operatives sponsored project, we decided to release our latest trailer on that day. The link to the trailer is posted below, we hope you enjoy it!!
