This is a new blog to accompany our film-making projects. "Cryo 2008" is almost done. We will keep you up to date on what is happening with this and other film-related endeavours...cheers Jeff and Liesbet

"This film is not a comprehensive retro-journalistic narrative of the last calendar year, but a chronological sequence of images, in the spirit of cinema verite, reflecting highlights and movements. It is also serving as a practice run for our
film-making/sound-track skills as we gear up for more complex projects.

Please forgive the camera shake and rough zooms; We don`t hitch-hike with
a steady-cam! Plus, out on the road in the real-time world photography has to be
quick and spontaneous. We are our own camera-persons and technicians as we travel.

We choose to hitch-hike for many reasons. Hitching is an act of co-operation and trust, as well as being ecologically sound; We meet only the nicest people, and they are already goingour way! And if we can get by without a car, that's one less on the road.

We love Mother Earth, her awsome beauty and splendid diversity; this mode of travel creates for us a unique blend of natural wonder and human civilization.
These two "realities" are not always in harmony, yet we sense a paradoxical and
improbable balance.

Join us now as we flow back through 2008, from New Zealand to Australia
to Europe and back to Australia ...to experience the realities we were able to create...but only with a little help from our friends...and a LOT of help from
Mother Earth and the Great Spirit!"
