10 mph - still on the move

Update from the not-so-slow producers of 10 MPH. I’ve previously posted about their coast-to-coast journey across the US on Segway scooters, which they filmed, and are now showing at festivals in an attempt to pick up a distribution deal.

Devin Halden (director of the festival) wrote to Hunter Weeks (director of 10 MPH) to explain how 10 MPH had really struck a chord with him. Like the 10 MPH team, he gave up his day job to do something he felt more passionate about – setting up the inaugural Solstice Film Festival.

A distribution deal in the US is on the cards, they’re looking into a DVD release, and they’r also starting to get ready for their next film project – going across the Atlantic in a pedalo? In the meantime, check out the trailer.
