Megamoon Gets a Thumbs Up Review

  |   Adventure, Bikes, Camping, Filmmaking, Travel, Water   |   2 Comments

Anna Paxton of AlpsOutdoorsLife reviewed a selection of Women in Adventure films in the run up to Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (#SHAFF2015) and she chose Megamoon as one of her four to watch. It warms my cockles to know people both enjoy and are inspired by our film.  Here’s what Anna had to say;

This film is made by Hannah Maia and features herself and her new husband as they cycle across the US Transcontinental Great Divide for their Megamoon. First this involves rafting the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon, then cycling from New Mexico, via desert heat, wind, and mud to Alberta, Canada. Hannah owns this film, she has shared a piece of her personal world and it is full of joy and the love of life. I particularly enjoyed the little moments captured by the camera, a wheel popping off the trailer unexpectedly, beard wiggling, and the face that happens when your tent nearly gets struck by lightning. I was so inspired by this film I was practically packing my bags to go and find my own Mega adventures before the end titles had finished.

Megamoon will be showing at the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival this weekend (20th – 22nd March) in both the Spirit of Adventure Films 4 and Best of SHAFF 2015.

You can also catch our film at the Sustrans Cycle Cinema in London on the 1st April 2015 or the Secret Compass: An Audience with Adventure on the 21st May 2015 as part of the Kendal Mountain Film Festival World Tour.

    Wow ShAFF was a whirlwind, so many great films, I hope you enjoyed it! What did you think to the Women in Adventure panel? You might be interested in my blog post reviewing the discussion 🙂 Anna

      SHAFF was great! I didn’t spot you which is a shame. So many new faces. The Women in Adventure Panel was inspiring…just to get that many like minded women in one room. I was mulling over what exactly was said and your blog sums it up perfectly : ) I hope an actual network can take off…
