What was the inspiration behind making this short film?

When I heard about the huge task Wayne and Nick were planning I immediately thought we should document it. At the time none of us really new how it would unfold so for the first year and bit it was just a case of pointing a camera at anything that was happening, then the story began to show itself.

Was there any particular challenges you had to go through to make the short film happen?

Getting the ramp built was the main challenge, we had temps ranging from -9 to +35 and everything in between as the seasons changed, and in the winter the short days meant working in the dark often too. Filming all of that and then getting it work together was a bit of fun…

How has the short film been received?

The reception has been awesome! The world premiere was a sell out, its has screened and dozens of festivals around the world, we even sold it to a TV channel in Brazil to air and picked up a distribution contract that got it placed on Amazon Prime and other digital platforms.

Do you have any other projects in the pipeline?

Plenty! We are in pre-production for a sequel to ‘Fourteen Foot Journey’ as we speak! I have 3 other films being released this year, the ealiest being a documentary feature called ‘Rail:Lines’.

What advice would you give to anyone wanting to make their first short film?

Look at opportunities not hindrances.
