“Every human on this planet has walked a different path, no two feet ever following the same journey. The soles of our feet all tell a different story, and understanding the ‘Sole’ of a foot may very well be the best way to understand the ‘Soul’ of a person. Footprints will capture the cultures, experiences, and narratives of humanity through inspired short films, as told through the vantage point of feet around the world. Our aim is to inspire viewers to step outside their comfort zone and experience the world from a revitalizing and engaging new perspective.”
WHO WE ARE:
We are The 80’s Babies - a group of best friends who have dedicated our lives to inspiring those around us to take their passions and happiness to the next level. In recent years, our love for travel, culture, and humanity has developed into a life project of sorts. We have chosen to use our vast skill-set to create moments, opportunities, and media that display ways in which we, as human beings, can explore our greatest passions in life. We do this all in hopes of continuing to help to make the world a better place.
Between the project leaders, we have a combined travel experience of 60+ countries. Additionally, we have been the creators of a successful film and production company, a world renowned music website, a travel photography site documenting how different cultures celebrate, and even had a mention and photo in Rolling Stone Magazine. Included in our ranks is a dive master, a black belt in Taekwondo, 2 Masters degrees, and over 1,000,000 combined views on YouTube.
By traveling to countries and cultures around the world, we will be gaining knowledge and first first hand experience by immersing ourselves in the lives, landscapes, and stories of that location. Using our groups combined skillset and expertise in the areas of film, photography, social media, design, music, art, and storytelling, we will produce a narrative that will be both unforgettable and inspiring at the same time.
THE FIRST STEP:
Our next life journey, and first of this project, takes us to the incredible country of South Africa - the Cradle of Humanity. However, this time we want to create something more special, unique, and inspirational. With Africa being the Motherland of Human Origin, we felt there was no better place to start our Footprints project.
To share the concept in full would be to ruin a surprise, so we hope we can take your trust, your love, and your contributions, and make them into something truly special that we can share for years to come.
WHAT WE NEED:
The first step in our project, a 3 week trek down the South African coast, is that of extreme cost and obligation. Your donations will help us push further and dig deeper into the country, the cultures, and our goal to see as many Soles and Souls as possible.
Your contributions will go towards transportation costs, expedition expenses, and film/editing costs. Anything will help, as we will be traveling either way, but in order to reach our true potential, we need to raise between $5000 and $10000 more to move efficiently and effectively.
