Wanted: Expeditioners and Adventurers for Doco - 08/11/21 08:39 PM

Kia Ora everyone, if ya already read my post about looking for expedition members I am still looking but many don't know I am filmmaking student currently doing a Double Major in Te Reo Maaori and Filmmaking. I am currently seeking those who might be keen to participate in a documentary i am producing both as a project but also as a evolved version of my first Nature/Adventure rec film short in 2019 called Wanderers or in Te Reo Maori '' Na te aha matou i murare ai? It is a non commercial short film documentary basically asking questions to real life people who plan adventures, done adventures of are working towards a grand expedition . The working title is called ''Voyagers '' How i would describe it is as a Wanderer, adventure excites you to the point where you plan something grandiose in order to answer a deeper metaphorical perhaps meaningful rhetoric of why you yourself feel the need to Voyage beyond just wandering around in outdoor rec or hiking overland journeys etc. These interviews can be via skype or zoom. Im looking for at least 2 international voices . Any more info please leave me a message. Cheers Bushman.

I'm perfectly happy to chat with you...but I don't think of our trips in quite the same way. We regularly backpack into the mountains for up to a week at a time, but we don't see these as grandiose or even really expeditions. We're just going on vacation and doing what we love.

Some people we know think that we're bold adventurers. We're not. We just like to backpack, see new country, sleep on the ground, and do it for days on end away from other people.

Im not talking about backpacking strictly. Myself I have done a few thru hikes and tramped ( NZ HIKING) 1000'S OF KMS, along with Ran and paddled 100's of Kms so i completely understand how it may seem like im researching I have not done or not interested in. What im after is people who want to talk about why do they go outdoors beyond just wandering or to see a landmark, get out of the house, usual stuff.

Im basically looking for people who do adventures whether that be backpacking, paddling, sailing, in pursuit of something that they cannot answer easily and feel the need in some manner to journey beyond what they normally do in hopes of answering it. Sounds a bit metaphorical but that is what I am ideally after, however abridged to this convo is after people who might want to answer some questions in a non formal unfiltered convo/interview about their adventures and the pursuits of voyaging, as i might have stated which i may not have, is an adventure based method to answer questions whether personal or proffessional or leisurely about the outdoors and peoples connection to the earth and how the outdoors or trips are used to try aim to answer that. .. I hope that makes sense here . Cheers Bushman
