The trip took 335 days.
The documentary duration is 52 min.
So you save is already a lot of time saver for you.
The teaser duration is 2 minutes. Yeah but now it's really despicable
Lucie 31 years bike-lover
Peter, 31, tendinitis-lover
Their families are not so enthusiastic.
Their friends are rather skeptical.
Customs officers are doubtfully.
Neither is sporty.
Neither speaks Russian, Mongolian, Persian, Turkish or Greek.
Neither has ever done before biking.
One will survive.
The Soft Knees try to ride 300 kms between Nantes and La Rochelle
IT'S A FAILURE. Peter has a tendinitis.
On the advice of Lucy, Pierre attempts a rehabilitation for his tendinitis on
an aqua bike.
IT'S FAILURE. Pierre still has a tendinitis.
The Soft Knees attempt the 18,000 km France-Mongolia.
IT'S A FAILU ... LET’S SEE!
The Soft Knees are back, alive, from their trip.
IT IS A SUCCESS !
Depressed and haggard, Lucy and Peter are trying to keep some memories of their trip producing a documentary into a DVD. But having already spent everything in patches and vodka, they decide to specialize themselves in bike pickpockecting in Paris.
THIS IS A FAILURE. For Peter, still suffering from tendinitis, is overtaken by grannies.
On the run, the Soft Knee are thinking about a Plan B. Oh yeah: crowdfunding.
They will finance their documentary with this system, to present their film
festival to festival, drinking beer. And then, when it's really winter, they
will burn the movie on DVD.
Is it really useful THAT I GIVE YOU MY MONEY?
Oh yeah, sure. Because your money will be used to:
€ 200: burn 50 DVDs
€ 200: design and print covers
€ 200: translating all this into English
€ 200: send you the DVD by mail
€ 100: record the comment voice in studio
€ 100: fees My Major Company
IF WE EARN MORE MONEY… WHAT’S HAPPENING GUYS ?
Of course, if we did this trip (and you would have done the same, for
sure), it is primarily for financial gain by coming back. It's called “return
on investment”. That’s not new.
And for that, a lot of marvellous ideas.
IDEA # 1: A travel diary
Well, in fact it is ALREADY written. And it has been read by tons of sharpened brains.
But at the end, write a book costs nothing, right? Right!
SO, given that the book is already written, and that Remi ut the final touch to
the photos and maps to insert in, the only thing missing is to find a
publisher. But that costs money because it is necessary to send hard copies to
publishers, to meet them in offices and festivals, to drink champaign and buy
them gifts ...
And the book, once published, we send it to you (for nice and generous people,
huh...). And also, we will send it people who welcomed us during the trip. And
if noone wants to edit it, we do this by ourselves. Paw!
IDEA # 2: A waste collection project in Albania: the "Amazing Waste
In Albania, especially, we were shocked by the waste. Pierre is building a
waste collection project in Albania, with the populations of Roma and Egyptians
already living from this informal activity, that is collecting and selling
waste from dumps and streets bins. The idea is to build a network of people
whose waste will be collected directly door to door. In short, two
-social benefits (school for children, socialisation for parents, housing for
-environnemental benefits (less waste, more recycled waste, less greenhouse
-economical benefits (more jobs, more material, less social help, more green
