At Intrepid, we’re always on the lookout for travellers who are sharing their experiences and stories in interesting and creative ways – whether it’s travel writers, photographers or filmmakers – the people who are capturing a unique perspective of the world and showing what it really means to be ‘intrepid’.
So when we met the creative team behind 365 Docobites, we were captivated by their storytelling, and even more so by their bold challenge: to film 365 documentaries in 365 days.
“She really spurs me on”
“365 Docobites is an ever-expanding daily archive, a global consensus, a snapshot of life in different countries for an entire year” says Epiphany Morgan, the Producer/Director behind the project. “It’s a daily dose of humanity to remind people that they are, at their core, very similar”.
“I’d like to try”
Towards the end of the project, the 365 Docobites team wanted to travel through Africa, and we thought that this would be a perfect opportunity to collaborate with the filmmaking duo. So we joined forces and sent Epiphany and Carl (Mason – Director of Photography and Editor) on one of our Intrepid trips through Botswana.
“A lion ate a man”
This has been such a fantastic collaboration for us, and we’ve gained an entirely new perspective on our trips from watching all of the Docobites that were filmed in Botswana. We’ve gained fascinating insights into the lives of our leaders and travellers, as well as hearing the stories of many of the locals whose paths we cross on our trips.
In fact, it’s been such a success that the 365 Docobites duo are currently filming their final episodes of their year-long project whilst on an Intrepid trip in Cambodia, so watch this space for more of their Intrepid-inspired documentaries.
