Lipstick with dirt and some insects mixed in

This past month I've put a lot of hours into motorcycle travel and filming. I have learned a lot so far. From the very basic stuff like always carry a cleaning cloth to clean the camera lens to audio challenges (that I already knew but didn't think about). Then the final piece about taking into consideration the exhaustion from travel mixed with trying to film during the whole thing is unique. The Lipstick and Dirt project is about four women traveling the globe on motorcycles. They are on a quest to meet up and interview other women they've heard about who ride. Along the way though, the series documents how these women relate to people they meet, to one another, to the travel itself as they put the miles behind them. Sometimes they ride together and sometimes on their own but it never fails to be interesting.

The fourth episode is in the edit room as this is being written but here's episode three ...
