The SXSW Award-Winning Feature Film Documentary, The Journey

“Inspirational” The Washington Post
“Stand up and cheer film” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
The Journey is ‘On the Road’ meets ‘Tuesdays With Morrie’. It’s ‘Roger & Me’ meets ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’. It’s MTV’s ‘Road Rules’ with a heart. It’s ….well, our advice? See the film.” —Daniel Pink, Fast Company Magazine
“This is more than a movie. It’s a movement.”  Arlo Guthrie, Folk Legend
The SXSW Award-Winning feature film documentary The Journey was a groundbreaking success.  The short film of the same title sold at the Sundance Film Festival and went on to become one of the highest ranking short films in the world.
This lead to a development deal with Walt Disney Studios and the making of a feature film which world premiered at South By Southwest Film Festival in Austin Texas (SXSW).  It was awarded most memorable film.  The Journey movie went on to play in theaters across the country to sold out shows and standing ovations and lead to appearances on CNN, The Today Show and in magazines such as Fast Company, Spin Magazine and National Geographic.
The Premise:
After college, Eric Saperston bought an old Volkswagon Bus, took his Golden Retriever Jack and set out to follow the Grateful Dead and work a ski season in Aspen. While on the road, he called up some of the most powerful people in the world and asked them out for a cup of coffee.
What started out as a personal journey to find the answers to life’s biggest questions (Why am I here? How can I find happiness? What is success?) quickly turned into something bigger than he ever imagined.
As the journey unfolded, it attracted the attention of three others: Dave Murcott, Paige O’Brien and Kathleen Kelly. They too felt disconnected and were searching for purpose and meaning in their lives. So they quit their jobs, risked it all and jumped in the bus. The four of them and their dog Jack would soon discover they were no longer taking this trip. The trip was taking them.

Music

We love music.  On the side of the road, in a cafe or by a fire, artist who make us feel, tap our toes, whisk us away to magical places and make us smile are our communities cherished storytellers.  Some are famous, others you’ve never heard of, but one thing they all have in common is they sing from their heart and bare their soul. 

Three Things

Come on a journey with us as we traverse the globe talking to people and asking them to reveal three things about themselves.  Those three things change depending on who we are talking to, and most questions are made up on the spot.  / but when asked the right question however, everybody has three things to  say about something.
