“Far from where I thought”
A self-documented film about the last 2 years of my life spent living in a van and the unexpected path it took me through.
I got this van and I was so excited about the idea of being able to go and stay anywhere by myself. It felt like the ultimate freedom. I wanted to film my first road trip so that I had something to share with my family to show them everywhere I was going. My focus was always about the places I wanted to go and capturing the best looking shots without the thought of really taking in what I was doing. The more time I spent in the van by myself the more I realized that I wasn’t really enjoying the travelling. The curiosity of living in the van faded and I felt like I was just using it to run away from things. I kept filming and saw that my focus began shifting from the places that I was visiting, to the people that I was visiting. I began capturing moments with people I cared about instead of going to look for a cool road or mountain. This van now holds some of my most precious memories. This film is a look at my own self-growth - a scrapbook of moments that led me to where I am now.
