Bikes for Africa Documentary Trailer.

3 Apr

Hey Folks,

Sorry about the last post you got, it’s been a while since I’ve been blogging so a bit rusty.  I have written a massive blog post about the documentary getting all emotional and thanking everyone, and talking about the experience, but I’m still writing it. I’ll try and post it soonish, or maybe I won’t get around to it as I’m under the pump writing this book that has to be off to the editor by the end of the month!

Anyway, I just wanted to get the documentary trailer up for you my blog followers to see as we released it today.  Sit back, get a beer/coffee and enjoy this inner thigh rub of a teaser.

Bikes for Africa Trailer

27 May

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I present to you the trailer for the upcoming Bikes for Africa Documentary.

Another impressive masterpiece from Mr Richard Sidey!

Exciting times indeed, Sich I have just got back from an overnight bike trip where he talked me through the finer (I should say the simpler) points of filming and what I need to do to capture the required footage whilst in Africa. I’m rather excited about it.

For more information on the doco go to the website www.bikesforafrica.net, spread the word, get involved.

Sich making waves!

21 Feb

Like an Antarctic ice berg breaking off and making a tsunami like wave, the FCE documentary maker Richard “Sich” Sidey has been making waves of his own within the filming industry.

His recent non-verbal experimental short film entitled “Landscapes at the Worlds Ends” embedded above has been gaining accolades and a lot interest from the doco and film industry. The film has been nominated as a finalist for the Best Short at NZ’s largest documentary film festival, Documentary Edge Festival. If you’re in NZ, the screening dates for the Landscapes at the Worlds Ends are as follows, so get along and support Sich.

Auckland

Thu 24th Feb – Event Cinemas (Newmarket)

Sat 26th Feb – Academy Cinemas (CBD)

Sun 6th Mar – Event Cinemas (Newmarket)

Wellington

Thu 17th Mar – Angelika at Reading Cinemas (Courtenay Place)

Not only has the Sichnami been hitting NZ shores, but also the States. Landscapes at the World’s Ends has been selected for the San Francisco Ocean Film Festival to be held in California from March 9th to 13th, 2011. This festival is in its 8th year and features a selection of ocean related films from around the globe. Check out the festival website here.

And yes Australia has just started to recover from the devastating floods and they are going to be hit by the tsunami that is Landscapes at the Worlds Ends at the world renown Byron Bay Film Festival on March 4th-13th 2011.

So if you are going to be present in any of these locations then get along and support. For those of you that haven’t seen it yet, then check out the FCE teaser that Sich put together with no expedition footage, just his parents oldskool film footage from their trip to Africa in the 70’s, absolute gold.

FCE Documentary gone public

Hey team,

Just a quick post to let you know that Sich the Final Continent Expedition doco maker has unveiled his plans for Africa 2012 on his blog, check out his post.

Also congratulations are in order for Sich whose recent triptych imagery film Landscapes at the world’s ends has been selected for New Zealand’s largest documentary film festival, Documentary edge 2011.

It’s been great to have Sich on board with his passion for the FCE project and professionalism, after getting off Skype with Sich I’m always excited, things are falling into place nicely. Sich is currently working on a little promo video for the FCE –once I hurry up and finish the written blurb he needs-, so watch this space.

Below is Sich’s Landscapes at the world’s ends trailer. And remember, go and check out his doco blog post. Enjoy.
