What’s it like to spend 14 months crossing the Great Plains – from Canada to Mexico – in a 21-square foot, solar powered, one mule wagon?
Hi. I’m film maker Bernie Harberts. The Lost Sea Expedition is my Rocky Mountain PBS series about my 14 month wagon voyage across America. I filmed the whole voyage right out of my wagon – no sponsor, chase crew or support vehicle. Climb aboard. Let’s go see America!
The Lost Sea Expedition addresses the important issues of our time about water, automation and the depopulation of the Great Plains. There’s plenty of adventure, too, like exploring a vanished sea with a mule and how (not) to move a rattlesnake with a buggy whip. Here’s more about the series.
5-star thanks to everyone who’s reviewed the Lost Sea Expedition on the series’ Amazon, Vimeo and Facebook pages. We’d love if you left a review of your own. They’re quick and fun to write. Plus, they really help us. Leave yours right here:
“Bernie…..have you lost your DAMN mind?” That’s what folk artist Charlie Frye said when I asked him to paint 30 paintings for the Lost Sea Expedition the series about my 14 month wagon mule voyage across America.
You know it’s a good party when the film maker (me) leaves the movie’s premier party without any photos. Thanks party hosts Will and Deni McIntyre and Wendy Hamil for the the Lost Sea Expedition premiere party pics! Plenty more snaps and the story right here. Continue reading “Behind the Premiere Party”
Missing some cash? The Lost Sea Expedition fundraiser has gone viral among dogs and they’ve been making unusually large number of cash donations. Please advise your pooch that what he/she heard about mule Polly sending them a premium (aka, mule apple, grass pie, manure) is purely rumor.
Okay, I’m kidding! But we sure appreciate everyone who’s helping us finish the fundraiser strong. You – and your pet – can still make a donation right here. Or just hit that yellow button.
Ever wonder what it’s like to be swallowed by a sea monster? Yeah, that’s the stuff I wondered about as mule Polly and I walked day after week after month across the Great Plains on the Lost Sea Expedition.
Hey June, here’s your Thank You note straight from mule Polly’s lips….er, muzzle! Your donation paid for a minute of audio engineering on the TV series. Try as we might, there are just some things we can’t make right with duct tape (and that’s a good thing…).
We’re working like bee-stung mules getting the Lost Sea Expedition ready for its January 4 Amazon Video Direct and Rocky Mountain PBS premiere. Then, just when we needed a much-needed reminder to slow back down to a garden mule’s pace, we got this wonderful sketch from Olivier. Olivier lives on a yellow boat in Paris.
