Inspired by Top Gear, two local filmmakers – David Kaine and Charles Corbett – are hoping to set out on an expedition of their own this winter. They're going to attempt to drive from the southernmost point in the U.S. ("Mile Zero" in Key West) to the northernmost, Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.
It's 5,500 miles and they hope to make absolutely no stops along the way. (Gross.) That's about 110 hours of driving. Of course they want to stock the car with cameras and such (the subsequent film is currently titled 110 Hours) and need money to make it all happen.
They've set up a Kickstarter account with a $5,500 goal in the next 42 days and counting. A donation of $1-$300 gets you pretty much what anyone helping out an indie film gets: a DVD when it's done and your name in the credits. $10k gets you the car they used, though an Exec. Producer credit would probably be more in order than a stink bomb that's already traveled the continent. Just saying.
