Sam Pollard is a musician with a passion for sport. He is no cycling professional, yet he made his way across Australia in 26 days on a bicycle. Straight afterwards he participated in an Ironman event. This was a one-of-a-kind tour that had never been tried before him.
Sam Pollard, in partnership with Planet Blue Pictures, brings this tour to your screens in a feature documentary ‘A World Of Difference’.
The film showcases cycling, and gives the viewer the opportunity to see and explore through the eyes of a rider. And most importantly, it's an eco-friendly tour, with a low-carbon footprint.
Our cast consists of Sam, his coach, and a pro-cyclist presenter. A camera crew followed them on their month-long journey from Sydney, NSW to Busselton, WA, ending with the Busselton Ironman competition. ‘A World Of Difference’ shows Sam performing gigs along the way at various locations in Sydney, Adelaide, and Perth. These gigs were held in partnership with chari- ties RecLink Australia and the Amy Gillet Foundation to support young people to get involved in music and sport, and to raise the awareness of motorists who share the road with cyclists.
A World of Difference is proudly supported by Sony, Britz Campers, Aqto and Max’s Protein.
