"My customers are continually looking for a great (not good) travel film that conveys the truths of travel around this awesome planet. I think I finally found one that I can recommend.
The story is simple enough of two friends traveling around the globe spreading the ashes of a deceased friend. Along the way they encounter those situations and people that so often intertwine that travel story you hear someone talk about; Beautiful and exotic locations, strange events and even funnier people, exquisite and bizarre cuisines, and a plethora of the stories one hears while traveling from other trotters. Some of their visited locales include South America, Germany, Vietnam, and Thailand. Along the way, we are afforded our main character's narration of his travel, no matter how humiliating.
The film was made entirely with one small digital camera and the results were outstanding. The scenery never suffers (from not having million dollar cameras and crews) and the whole feel of the film makes everything believable. The DVD has plenty of extras about how they made the film (a small sampling can be seen in the credits), and even some deleted scenes.
My customers are immediately attracted to the DVD as the cover art shows 20 or so of those indie film festival wreaths on it. That aside, it shows the successful results one can achieve on a small budget, while providing an inspirational film about the tangible human benefits of traveling. Some light humor, the normal language barrier missteps, and the meaning of enjoying the ride all come together here - reminds me of how some of my world travels went. Hope you enjoy it."
