Well, after a long time in the edit suite, 'The Big Lap' is now finally finished. I can't tell you how happy it makes me to type these words. I thought the 7 years of planning and the build up to the trip itself was the tough part but the truth is that editing the 200 hours of video we shot over 2 years into a 10 episode documentary series has been the real challenge.
The reality is that I could have banged it together and knocked something out sooner but I'm too much of a perfectionist for that. This film for me is not about selling a few DVDs and making a few bucks ...
It's something much bigger than that.
Personally it is the single biggest creative project I've ever completed so it's important to me that it's something I'm proud of.
But most importantly I want it to have a real impact on people. My greatest wish is that I get messages from people that have watched it saying that we've inspired them to get out and plan their own travel adventure, whether that is around Australia or somewhere else.
Next year we'll be working hard to enlist the support of as many retail outlets around Australia as we can so that we can reach and inspire as many people as possible.
Meanwhile a small run of the 'First Edition' DVD's are currently being manufactured and will be back to us in time for us to despatch to you in time for Christmas.
Individually Numbered Special 'First Edition'
To make this 'First Edition' just a little more special each DVD will have a special wrap around sleeve and each one will be individually numbered. This is the only time we will do this and the numbers will correspond to when your order is placed so the sooner you order the lower your number will be.
They will make a great Christmas present for someone you know who loves travel and Australia!
