Sleepless 'til Seattle

Those of you who travelled through our Argentina blogs last year may remember us meeting Pauline from Portobello, and cycling with her for a few days.  After we went our separate ways, Pauline went off into Bolivia, then flew to the US to join her friend Graham to cycle across the US from Boston to Seattle.  Graham is a filmmaker, and recorded their journey with a view to making a full-length film of the trip.  Pauline is now in New Zealand, and Graham has returned to Edinburgh with several thousand miles of film (or its digital equivalent!) to edit.  You can have a look at some of the video on the Sleepless til Seattle website.

Graham is now trying to raise some money for the post-production of the film.  He's set up a website to try to attract some community funding; if you're interested, please take a look.  You can find the website here.  The bits of film we've seen are looking great, and it would be a shame if all this hard work wasn't able to reach a wider audience.  There are some fun perks for investors, so take a look and help if you can!
