LIVE A LIFE OF YOUR OWN DESIGN
A feature documentary exploring the fascinating, inventive and inspiring ways people are choosing to live.
Over the last three years the Live Differently team has searched, studied and traveled across Australia. During this time we have filmed six subjects from a variety of different backgrounds. This feature documentary illustrates and guides us through the multitude of inventive, exciting, and in some cases ‘off-the-wall’ ways people are choosing to live. It is an honest exploration of those with the courage to live differently. This series will not only include a deeper insight into various movements that are gaining popularity, but also explore those that are less well known and emerging. Read more here
This series is for anyone who has ever wondered “what does it really take to create your own path in the world – and how can I do it?”
