Cathy O’Dowd talks to British adventurer Sarah Outen who decided to use Kickstarter to raise money to make a film about her round the world adventure. Sarah explains how she decided this was the way forward to make it happen and how she set about pre-production with the film-maker Jen Randall. So far the London2London via the World campaign has raised £42,093 from 732 backers.
Sarah Outen is an adventurer by land and sea, bestselling author and motivational speaker. Keen to encourage people outside and enable young people to access adventure, she is a proud ambassador and patron of a number of charities. In November 2015 Sarah completed her most recent major expedition: London2London:Via the World, an attempt to row, cycle and kayak 25000 miles around the Northern Hemisphere. The journey took 4.5 years and was all the richer for not turning out exactly as planned.
