HAVE YOU IMPLEMENTED ANY OF YOUR CHARACTERS' SUSTAINABLE ACTIONS IN YOUR OWN LIVES? We are not off-the-grid ourselves; however it's pretty difficult to not be educated in some way about sustainable living these days and to implement some of these simple strategies into our daily lives. Recycling, lowering fuel consumption, recycling rain water, and buying locally grown food may not seem like radical or effective practices, but they are if done on a larger, community-orientated scale. Our actors will probably not have to stretch too far to portray their characters in Vacationlanders as the series develops!
DO YOU THINK THIS SERIES CAN MAKE AN IMPACT BEYOND SIMPLE ENTERTAINMENT? HOW? This series is going to be complex — a sci-fi/how-to/dramatic series about a group of zany people who choose to live in a future Maine without a dependency on oil. A lot of the information out there about sustainable living doesn't have much practical information for the "down-and-gritty" reality of waking up one day and not having any long-lasting supply of oil-based fuels or materials.
