Seeking Bike Movie Experts (Training Provided)

Filmmaker Spotlight: Joey Schusler

Joey Schusler is an adventurer extraordinaire who also creates gorgeous films about his journeys. In his early 20’s he realized his bike could be more than simply a thrill-seeking too for racing the clock, it could also be a tool for adventure and getting an personal view of the world.

Filmmaker Spotlight: Devansh Mathur

“Gotya” is a very interesting bike-themed film set in India. We spent some time talking with filmmaker Devansh Mathur about the making of this complex piece.

Filmmaker Spotlight: Dwayne Burgess

Dwayne Burgess says it was Ron Fricke’s “Koyaanisqatsi” that really paved for him as a filmmaker. “My first film was born out of the pure desire to challenge myself to create moving image with a digital camera, push every aspect of my knowledge and technical artistry using time lapse photography.”

Filmmaker Spotlight: Damian Ineichen

“Public transport is very good in Switzerland and in most cases you can take your bike with you. For us, it’s the perfect way to get access to all the trails in the Alps.”

Filmmaker Spotlight: Alastair Humphreys

Alastair Humphreys was once named a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, and is a sought after inspirational speaker and a best-selling author. His expeditions are a call to arms: “Nothing,” he proclaims, “is achieved without someone being bold enough to begin it and taking that first step” – which needs only be a tiny one to “set us on the way to realizing that we are all capable of more than we imagine.”
