Trailnotes now available on iTunes & DVD

Cadre Productions is pleased to announce the iTunes and DVD release of its debut film “Trailnotes”, a documentary about the mountainbike lifestyle in Rotorua New Zealand.

After a successful national premiere tour the film has now been released digitally on iTunes globally, debuting at Number 1 on the New Zealand and Australian iTunes movie charts for documentary. At the time of print Trailnotes retains its Number 1 documentary status in the New Zealand iTunes store and is sitting at Number 4 documentary in the Australian iTunes store. However the most exciting outcome for the filmmakers is that the film currently sits at Number 11 and Number 18 in the Sports charts for the Canadian and United States iTunes stores. Not bad for a little mountainbike film from Rotorua!

The film can be downloaded directly from the New Zealand iTunes store at:

It is available in 33 countries globally so if you have any ex-pat riders that could be keen to see it, flick it their way.

200 limited edition DVD’s have just arrived in the country and are available for purchase here on the website for $45.00 including Shipping. These are going quickly so get in and secure yourself a copy! The film is being distributed in the US, Canada, Europe and South America but keep your eyes peeled for some exciting news on this front in the coming months for New Zealand distribution

We hope you enjoy the film and thanks again to everyone that has come along to a premiere or downloaded the film!

Post-Production update – Trailnotes is almost here!

Hey Guys,

So after almost a year in the making, spending weekends and early mornings chasing the light we have officially completed all filming. This has been an epic mission to get interviews, consents/releases to pull this project off and an enormous amount of planning has been put in. Over the last 2 months the Cadre team has been locked to the edit suite compiling and getting Trailnotes completed. Hundreds of gigabytes and hours of footage has been reviewed to pick the best footage and create the most cohesive story possible. We are dropping some behind the scenes updates in the next month to give you some insights into how the film was made, some of the challenges we faced and a teaser for what will be released. Keep an eye out for official release dates and screening times

Lots of exciting news to come but back to the edit suite we go….to watch the rendering go slow!

Coming Soon

Welcome to the Official website of the Trailnotes film! We are finally up and online, ready for updates on the progress of the film, behind the scenes teasers and when the release is scheduled. We are currently working to create a Vimeo and Facebook presence so keep an eye out in December for the Trailer release. We look forward to sharing the project with you all!
