Andrew Martin once worked in the finance industry, but after leaving that life, he and his wife Beth moved to New Zealand and developed an amazing permaculture property in just 3 years!
This film was made as part of our Living the Change series. For this series we’re traveling around New Zealand making short documentary films about permaculture farms, tiny houses, and sustainability.
What’s the plan?
On the 20th of January my partner Antoinette and I flew from Australia to New Zealand. We bought a beautiful 1966 Ford Transit and we’re currently in the process of modifying it to run off waste vegetable oil, and rebuilding the interior. In between periods of working on the van we’re travelling around New Zealand making short films about amazing people who are creating change in their own lives to a sustainable way of living. We’ll be making films about permaculture farms, tiny houses, natural building, living simply, community, and more. The first short film of the project is almost finished and will be released shortly. Our aim is to make fifteen short films throughout this project, and we’re also filming the process of the camper conversion for people interested in converting their own vehicles to run on waste vegetable oil. These short films will be available on my YouTube channel for free and the entire collection along with footage of the journey itself will be edited into a two-hour-long documentary that will be available early for people who donate, and then sold to the public for a small amount at a later date.
