Looking for someone (Director/DoP) who may be interested in the following story with a view to producing a Doco.

What?: A couple of old blokes driving their cars (Dodge Tourer and Willys Whippet, C1920) from Hanoi, Vietnam, to Helsinki, Finland. Will have one support vehicle with a couple of spare seats, capable of carrying an enthusiastic, adventurous and resourceful ‘film maker’ with compact equipment.

When?: Leaving Hanoi 1 May 2014. Arriving Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan about mid July
2014. Probably leaving cars in Bishkek until May 2015, then completing trip via Silk Road towns (Tashkent, Samarkand and Bukhara in Uzbekistan, then via Turkmenistan, ferry over Caspian Sea, then Azerbaijan, Georgia, Russia via the Volga to Nizhny Novgorod and St Petersburg, arriving Helsinki about end July 2015.

Why?: Good question. Just the satisfaction of having owned and cared for the car for over 50 years, and having the time to finally do something like this.

How?: Travelling light and taking it easy. Visiting natural attractions along the way, including historical sites, national parks etc, stopping to walk and smell the flowers, and taking loving care of the vehicles. No more than 50 km/h and no more than about 200 km per day. Also camping or modest community-based accommodation wherever possible.

Who?: Car owners and a couple of mates, all experienced travellers, respectful and curious about other cultures and points of view.

Possible angles: Dodge Bros brand centenary; old wheels on the Silk Road.
In the first instance contact Steve Thompson on 0408 346 528.
