About

OFF THE GRID

We hear it every day: we all want to travel the world, but it's too expensive, too dangerous, or we just don’t know where to begin. 

Well what if we decided to put an end to the excuses, and take the leap

 This team of young travelers decided to take the leap; to explore other cultures, learn others' stories and share these stories with the rest of the world! With your help, they can capture the beauty of these moments and share these stories with YOU straight from your home! Learn about the world that lies outside your comfort zone, share the connections and friendships made around the globe, and learn how you can create your own adventure by traveling to these places to lend a helping hand, become a friend, and learn about and understand the world we live in. We BELIEVE we can make the world a better place by sharing knowledge and understanding of people in other places, and this is where it begins. Anyone can make an impact, big or small, you just have to GO.

MEET THE TEAM:

Our Vision: To take you with us on a journey into the hearts and minds of people all across the globe while planting the seed to compel you to dream big and gather the courage to get out there and leave your own mark on the world.

HELP THE TEAM FULFILL THEIR DREAM and watch this travel/reality series as a group of 20-something shoestring travelers get out of their comfort zones and get ‘Off the Grid’ by going worlds away from the place they called home. This team of adventurers will engage with the locals and connect with other travelers while showing the world how a little bit of courage, understanding and an open heart can go a long way. By creating powerful friendships and helping others on an individual level we will show you how similar we all truly are, and what an open mind and friendly smile can accomplish. We will leave our footprint on the hearts of people from every nation, one continent at a time.

What will the team be doing? We will be marching into the roads less traveled by many, and surprise viewers with the welcoming and friendly nature of the locals. We will open the door for others to re-evaluate their opinions and connect with people from all wakes of the world. We will show you that no matter the differences in our culture, lifestyle and location on this planet, we all share many of the same hopes, dreams, fears, loves and sorrows.

The goal is to proudly say that we have stepped foot into nearly every nation of the world to show viewers what adventure awaits them beyond the comfort of their couch. There will be daring and strange adventures, thrilling parties and trying challenges for these young travelers. They will be tested, will grow and learn things that could not be possible while sitting idly in the comfort of their homes, and share the experience with YOU as they become a friend, a student and teacher, and a storyteller.

WHY WATCH? Follow along on our journey and watch us grow, learn and live. The episodes will have you laughing, crying, cheering, and clinging to your seats; but most importantly, it will leave the viewer wanting to go on their own global adventure with the knowledge to do it on their own. Each episode will feature a specific country that we are in; you will be watching as Kali, Damian and new friends made along the way explore exotic places, try a taste of their foods, drink, culture and way of life, and try out crazy adventure sports like volcano surfing! We will take you along as we meet new friendly faces, as we face our fears and go through major and minor challenges, and as we explore the world and learn and grow.

Risks and challenges

No film is without risks and challenges, but we are confident we’ve assembled a team capable of delivering an engaging story. We are going to strange lands to film a documentary, who knows what will happen!

Of course setbacks could arise, such as lost, stolen or damaged equipment. In order to combat this all equipment will be insured.

There will be risks in traveling in the "less safe" areas with expensive equipment. The trip will be researched ahead of time and will be entirely drug-free, as this jeopardizes the safety of the travelers and is not something we stand for.

Every dollar raised over our goal will help to make a better finished product.

We are confident that through YOUR support we can accomplish our goal.

THE WORLD AWAITS YOU.

A Little Inspiration:

“The truly LIVED life, is not a routine existence in some quaint, picturesque village of safety and certainty. No, the life worth living is OUT THERE, in the wooded wilds of the unknown, on the craggy battlefields that test our wits and wills in the daily fights with our own demons… It is only in the herculean quest for something more that life fills us with wisdom and meaning, but only after we have paid with our sweat and, at times, our tears."

"It is out there on the path less traveled, an uncharted path chosen by each of us alone, an often meandering, overgrown path that leads only to another unpaved road or open field of opportunity, where we must strike out once more with the same hope for victory and transcendence. It is out there when we have the guts to stand naked before the world as who we truly are, when we peer into the souls of those around us and finally see in them the image of the divine, that we plunge ourselves bravely and unconditionally into love that has no bottom or boundary. It is out there, outside the confines of our comforts and the pleasures of our accumulations, beyond our architecture of the routine, that we slip the bonds of our limiting beliefs, soar magnificently above our own shortcomings, and express our highest selves."

"It is out there, in a world rich with choice and challenge and fear and freedom, that your greatest gifts and adventures await you. Listen. It is out there that destiny calls…”

-Brendon Burchard.
