About the Journey
In May 2013, Brylowski packed a minivan with five crew members, equipment, and one tailor-made donkey outfit and shot the absurd film from Toronto to L.A. over the course of twenty days. The USA shoot was followed by another eight days of filming around Ontario and Quebec. The production garnered mass attention from locals and tourists throughout Pennsylvania, Cleveland, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, and California, filming in iconic US locations like Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Monument Valley, Dead Horse Point State Park, Joshua Tree National Park and Venice Beach. Locals from Toronto to the deep south west were eager to take pictures with, kick, and ride the donkey. The film will premiere at the Yorkton Film Festival which runs from May 22 – 25, 2014.
