beaten-path.pngThirty-eight years in television broadcasting are behind Cross' film about the annual Papa Joe Ride, a motorcycle rally cancer fundraiser from North Bay to Mattawa named after Joe Lefebvre who died of the disease in 1993.

He got involved with the Near North Mobile Media Lab ahead of shooting the documentary in 2010. It was a challenge to piece together footage in between work assignments and required him to upgrade his own equipment for editing, but he got a break using music from his brother's Edmonton-based band.
