David’s Story: Addicted to Overlandia
David Priddis was conceived on the road, when his parents were traveling overland across Australia. Thirty years later, his decision to leave his job and drive across South America, Africa and Asia in a Land Rover Defender was not a radical attempt to find himself, but a natural expression from a person who’s self-aware enough to know that his true home is out in the world.
Where?Next was commissioned by ExOfficio to produce a short narrative about David’s wanderlust from a series of interviews and GoPro clips uploaded to YouTube during his journey.
