Sam and Adam

With roughly 200,000 British people leaving Britain each year, I want to document the pro's and con's of traveling abroad. As me (Sam 28 y.o) and my brother (Adam 27 y.o) are tired of the low job offers, weather and peoples negative views on politics and general life-style, we seek to investigate "is the grass greener on the other side?" We want to bring people down to ground zero in this. For this project, we each have £3000, our visas and plane tickets.

We will be going to the most popular destinations to immigrate, then spending 3 months there. The locations are France, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

In this period we want to see how hard it is to get a decent job, friends and basically a new life. Can we survive? Will it test are brother relationship? Can anyone do it? These are some questions we seek to answer. If need be, we will live off the land!

We hope to inspire young and old people that you can burst your bubble. The world is free for all, and one decision can change your life.

So the documentary and adventure starts with us finding accommodation and a job, then exploring cultures and basically fitting in. This has a 3 month time limit, so we understand the fast pace movements.

Hopefully people will see what countries have the best prospects. This will also have adventure, unreal sight seeing and let's not forget lots of male brother comedy!

Adam is an alternative and highly smart fella, very much a people person. He has met and even drank with celebrities, including most of the Game Of Thrones cast, Brendan Frazer, Bill Bailey, the list goes on.

I am... well this is tough! ha! I consider myself a bit like Dappy... a bit daft, and full of..! But random and I get bored easily so this documentary will be packed with unexpected humor. I also won awards on acting including, most promising and best male performer. I want to base this around the simple things in life as well, nothing has to be a struggle! The time we are looking to start this will be July 2015. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
