The Wireless Generation | Documentary

by Desktop Documentaries

The Wireless Generation is a documentary currently in production (2010-2011) by travel blogger/photographer/filmmaker Christine Gilbert and her husband Drew who run a popular travel blog called Almost Fearless. They are shooting and interviewing people as they travel across five continents documenting a new kind of worker -- those who have chosen to take their jobs on the road, working online from anywhere in the world.

As explained on their website, here are some examples of the people they're interviewing:

"From a sociology professor teaching online from Thailand to a financial analyst for American Express backpacking across South America to a family of four traveling with their kids across Asia as they build websites for their clients back home in Australia - these people have each found ways to make the ultimate dream of traveling the world and keeping your career possible. All it takes is a good wifi connection, a little creativity and the desire to do something different."

The filmmakers raised the initial $10,000 for the project through their website which helped them purchase their equipment. Read an article detailing their equipment list.

"At its heart this is a film about travel. We've shot in some amazing locations," says Gilbert.

Below is a short clip of the Lantern Festival in Thailand that they filmed as part of the documentary. Awesome stuff.
