16,000 Feet on a Friday - documentary showing at Apple Soho 10/04

Hi,

I am a folding bike freak and also a Mac Geek, so life is good when folding bike and Mac mixed.

Two weeks ago, the Bike Friday cyclist who did a documentary on biking across the Old Route 66 was in NYC and did a showing at the Apple Soho Store. I just remember and would like to post the information for the 10/04 showing for those who are interested. Here's the description from Apple Soho's website:

16,000 Feet on a Friday: Biking the World’s Highest Paved Road
Join author and world cyclist, Lynette Chiang, to learn how she created her 45 minute documentary on cycling along the world’s highest paved road using a 3.2 megapixel digital camera, her 12” PowerBook G4, and iLife. She will talk about the advantages of using such simple equipment to make compelling adventure films shot from the bicycle.
October 4, 8:00 p.m.

It is FREE on the 2nd floor of the Apple Soho (Prince Street two blocks off Broadway) So for those of you in NYC, stop by and check it out. It would be interesting to meet some of you from the forum.

Presumably it's covering this?

Looks very interesting, I imagine the DVD is of her trip, but it'd be very interesting to get a tutorial on her editing, video techniques etc.

I see BF has the concept of "Customer Evangelist", just like Apple. I'm surprised more bike firms don't have that, as often enthusiastic Customers make great salespeople.

I'd love to go to see this presentation, but no chance of a trip sadly. If she does produce a "technical" dvd of her techniques, perhaps you could post to let us know please?
