“Vahana: (Sanskrit: “mount,” or “vehicle”), denotes the being, typically an animal or mythical entity, a particular Hindu god is said to use as a vehicle. The vahana and deity to which they support are in a reciprocal relationship. Vahana serve and are served in turn by those who engage them. It is said that the Vahana can “make even malevolent events bring hope.”

We rode, bused, and trained for one month, and now after working on the video for three months intermittently, Vahana is complete. It’s about 27 minutes in length, and shows our trials and tribulations on the road, as well as the beauty and the adventure.

Spinning Southward

What is it like to live every day on a bicycle for 16,000 miles?

“Spinning Southward” is a documentary film following three bicyclists who traveled from the far northern shores of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska through 13 countries to Ushuaia, Argentina in support of the National Brain Tumor Society.

The riders, brothers John and Mike Logsdon and filmmaker, Nateon Ajello, were inspired by the memory of their mothers, Jean Logsdon and Fran Ajello, who both were affected by brain tumors. By the end of their journey in September 2006, the cyclists had raised more than $75,000 for the National Brain Tumor Society
and had reached out to thousands of families both personally and through media along the way.

The film documents the hardship, wonder, challenge, people, and all elements that come with living every day on a bicycle. It also incorporates mapping, animation and original music that bring the story to life.
