We are looking for people who have the skills and the resources and want to make the move from their existing lives inside mainstream society, leave their jobs and their mortgages and their high-spending consumer habits, and move to a low-stress, low-consumption life off the grid.
Of course there will still be a need for at least some to work and make money, still a need to generate power, wash, cook, have shelter. But we want to show the world all these things are possible in total comfort, with no stress, off the grid, if you arrange yourself cleverly.
There are many reasons why I have been trying to make a film or a web series about people who are making the move to live off-grid. The first is that the masses of material on TV at the moment never seems to reflect real people and their real lives.
The second is there is a huge pent-up demand for knowledge about this life, and successful examples of how to do it. Right now I get about 10 emails a day from people who are saying they have had enough of their lives inside mainstream society but do not know how to get out.
I want folks to watch my film and think “I can do that. |I am going to do that.”
Please help us. Please join us.
In the first instance please write to email@example.com, or even better SKYPE me at OFFGRIDNICK, so we can chat through WHEN you could move, WHERE you live, WHY you want to move off-grid and WHAT kind of skills you are offering.
I hope to hear from you soon.
you can see an old film I made last year when I first started raising the money to make this film: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/off-grid/off-the-grid-and-on-the-cloud
