Storyline

Two guys quit stodgy corporate jobs, scrounged up all the savings they could, collected credit cards, and stepped - or better yet - scooted forward to follow their biggest dream: to become filmmakers. Josh Caldwell rode a Segway from Seattle to Boston, while his buddy Hunter Weeks directed a film they both shot about the experience and about the moments leading up to this crazy twist on the American road trip. From cubicle farms to the open road, the film will chronicle how these guys ultimately changed their lives forever. They did what so many of us have always wanted to do - gave it all up for the passion inside. Written by Anonymous

Great fun and heart-warming
21 May 2007 | by josephtkelleySee all my reviews

10 MPH is great fun and heart-warming. If you're a city dweller, you deserve a taste of what the rest of the US is like. The only thing better than actually seeing this film is that you can't help being happy for the filmmakers that they got to put their vision, talents, and sense of adventure to such good use. They embody this line from Howard Thurman, "Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

One thing that really made me want to see 10 MPH was this comment by Sam Chaffos, Documentaries Programing Director for the 2006 Vail Film Festival: " . . . the moving experience shown in your film transcends the screen and infects the audience in a way that I don't know can be properly expressed through words. Maybe it's just where I happen to be in my own life at the moment, but I doubt it. The deft editing and subtle power of the courage, friendship, humour, and adventure conveyed in 10 mph is unlike almost any documentary I've seen, and I thank you personally for exposing so much. It amounts to an unbelievably powerful piece of art."
