Road Cyclists Wanted: Friday 7th October Lane Cove

Road Cyclists Wanted: Friday 7th October Lane Cove

Postby AUbicycles » Fri Sep 23, 2011 1:34 pm

This in from bike designer and film maker Martin Renwick who is after road cyclists who can free some time and be in a film (bunch racing) which is for a charity project. You do get paid! Please phone or email Martin if this suits.


------ Quoted ---------


We're after 8 cyclists to feature in this compelling drama for 10 hrs, approx. start 6:30 am on Friday 7th October at Lane Cove National Park. (We have a 30 strong Race bunch already taken care of).

Rate for the day is $246.27. All need to have their own bikes and kit. See the synopsis - storyline, pretty good stuff!

This subject is close to my heart (no pun intended), and is of course aimed specifically to draw us into the notion of becoming organ donors. In the 40 years I've been riding in bunches I've lost 6 mates. As plenty of local riders know, I actually died and was brought back in the ambulance after a "Mad Mile" (Sutherland) crash in '93 myself. So this subject runs deep for me experientially. Also, I have reconsidered my attitude to Organ Donation because of it!

Let me know - 0434 923 959 - [email protected]


Casting Call
It could be worse, you could be one of the 1700 people on the organ transplant waiting list, waiting for up to 4 years for a compatible organ.
Instead, you get to come and act in a film, whilst working on your race form and fitness! Action takes place Friday 7th October 6:30 am at Lane Cove National Park.
We are shooting a self-funded, non-commercial short drama, which has received support from both DonateLife and St Vincent’s hospital.
The film aims to be broadcast on television in DonateLife Week at the end of February 2012. It will also have a much longer life, screening in schools, community groups, and for the use of medical practitioners, particularly donor coordinators.
In order to recreate a high speed, action packed cycling race, we need 30 fit, male cyclists with their own racing kit and racing bicycles.
If you are interested in participating please call ASAP!

I hate to sound Cynical, But maybe because the park will be less crowded on a weekday as apposed to the weekend...

Sounds like fun, but one of the criteria is "Fit.." Counts me out.....

Really a classic training bunch is required - and Lane Cove as a good location for a professional film shoot as a relatively closed and traffic restricted areas - it is about 10 hours for the participants.

It's a worthy project that I'd participate without payment. Shame I can't make it due to travels.

Same,but I did participate in a comercial shoot one day/night, and it is pretty strenuous, so the money is reasonable...
And you can always donate it afterwards.. :wink:

Would love to see the results.. :D

Yes. Numbers are good though yesterday I heard that a few more would be good.

Unfortunately I am posting about 6,5 hours before it kicks off... hope the weather fines up for them.
