A one-of-a-kind cross country trip by four program participants of People Inc’s guys Group, a social group for young men with developmental disabilities, and two life quality coaches, is captured on film. In June of 2015, they embarked on a journey from Buffalo, New York to the West coast, traveling 6,000 miles for an experiential learning trip. Winner of the Family Award and nominated for the Best WNY Feature Film at the 2016 Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival. Winner of the Best Feature Documentary for the 2016 November Session of the Canadian Diversity Film Festival. 75 minutes, no rating.
Includes the song Not so Different, featuring Johnny Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls.
Tim Batt, the editor of “Six Guys, 6,000 Miles” works at a local television station in Buffalo. Due to the film being all non-profit and the message of the movie, Tim edited this at a very discounted rate. Tim has a lot of editing experience from Hollywood and having been involved with shows like Xena: The Warrior Princess, Spies, The Pretender, etc.
After the guys came back from the trip Tim had around 20 hours of amateur footage that he had to sit through and watch to make “Six Guys” into a comprehensible movie.
Tim put his heart and soul into this and hopefully you can tell by watching this video.
