Isaac Seigel-Boettner

Co-Director

From a young age, Isaac has seen the world from the seat of the bicycle. While he spent most of his childhood days in California, every summer his family took him, his brother and groups of junior high kids on bike trips around the world — riding behind his parents’ bikes in a trailer on Ireland’s west coast, riding tandem in Canada’s Maritimes, finally, at the age of nine, touring on his own bike in the Austrian Alps. In his 13th summer, he found himself pedaling with friends 5,000 miles across America. Following his high school graduation, Isaac headed north to the Bay Area where he is currently attending UC Berkeley and will graduate with a Film Studies degree this spring. In 2008, he and his brother Jacob joined together for their first collaboration — Mzungus in the Mist, the story of a group of junior high students pedaling the red dirt roads of Rwanda. The film won the 2008 Michael Franti Power to the Peaceful Film Contest. With My Own Two Wheels is his most ambitious cinematic ride yet. Isaac presently works as a director and cinematographer for echolocale.com, a website that showcases video stories of artists making noise –and the unique places where they choose to make it. Isaac hopes to continue a career in filmmaking after graduation.
