Making an Independent Film: Going Cross-Country with Revolver

Our 1968 Chevy leads the way.
Pocket and Blue are finally coming to life.
The dream we’ve had for 10 years, just hit the road five days ago.
Rocking it out on the first day with Revolver Make Up Artist Allison Elizabeth, who kicks serious ass.

The Revolver Crew gets the pick up ready to shoot.
Luckily, we have a fully licensed safe driver to take all of us cross country.
The Revolver Crew custom built the inside of this rig – so we can sleep all 13 of us as we make our way across the country.
This black beauty was deemed The Mothership.
Our little driver gets out for her required break.

We hit the road and drive 62 hours cross country.
The crew rocks the caffeine at a truck stop.
Within 24 hours, we had two tires blow out on our trailer because of the rough roads.
Who needs Triple A when you’ve got these guys?
Tire blow-outs.
A road completely washed out road where we were supposed to shoot a scene.
None of these obstacles were going to get us down.
And then google maps told us to take this road…..
And we said Hell-to-the-NO.
We stuck our middle fingers up at it,
and drove ON.
The mighty Revolver crew forged ahead…
and to the Largest Truck Stop in the World in Iowa!
At 2:30am, this photo was taken there – I may or may not be having a breakdown.
You decide.
We drove all night under the stars,
all cuddled together in the bus,
watching the world go by.
As the sun rose, we scrambled out of the bus
a flurry of clothes flying out of suitcases,
coffee being made,
a wolf pack of wild adventurers
chasing after the dream.
We piled out in Alliance, Nebraska to CARHENGE.
You might remember this photo from our original scout during the Kickstarter.
And now….the hope that I could shoot here when I first saw it,
was finally happening all around us.
We shot all day into the night,
wandering through the vintage cars as the sunset
and the wide Nebraska sky turned into another gorgeous starry night.
