Hey everyone! I'm brand new here so please let me know if this is posted in the wrong forum. I poked around first and this seemed like the best forum.
I'd like to do a skoolie documentary. I've always found unconventional homes and RVs to be really fascinating: tiny homes, container homes, converted lighthouses, et cetera. While talking with my girlfriend the other day, we were discussing different ideas for living and I joked about living in a school bus for awhile. Then I wondered what it would actually be like and looked it up online. I definitely found a lot more than I expected. Sites like hankboughtabus.com and goodnewsbus.com made it seem a lot more appealing than I had thought; it definitely wasn't "living in a van down by the river". I asked her if she'd be up for converting and living in a bus and she went along with it. Score!
The proposed format for the documentary is pretty simple. We want to document our conversion of a bus and interview some folks who have done so themselves, especially those who actually live in one either part or full time.. We live in Idaho so we were hoping to meet people in the Pacific Northwest but we can also interview you via Skype. The internet is awesome! After we have our ducks in a row, we're going to start a Kickstarter campaign and see what happens. Doubly awesome!
This idea is brand new so we're still extremely flexible as to what we're doing and how we do it. Suggestions, questions, or input of any sort are definitely welcome. If anyone would be up for being interviewed for a documentary, please let me know!
