Off the Rails wins Top award! (Dec 03)
Recently ‘Off the Rails, On the back Roads to Beijing’ about Tim and Chris’ 10,000km cycling adventure won its third major film festival award. This time it was awarded the ‘Grand Prize’ at the International Mountain Film Festival, Poprad, in Slovakia. 45 competitive films from 20 countries were entered including those by many high profile film-makers. Off the Rails itself was originally shot by Tim and Chris on a simple one-chip video camera. Later it was narrated them and turned into a film by Richard Dennison of Orana films. A shortened version of the 52 minute original was broadcast on the ABC in August 2002. One year ago, the original version was also released on DVD . This can now be purchased in Australian Geographic stores, Target, David Jones, and other selected outlets…..but most importantly you can also order a signed copy through Tim’s website (and the money will go towards helping to feed the horses on his next trip!).
