SICKBOAT Creative in association with Fivecent Studios brings you an imaginative look into one of the core driving forces of life...travel.
As we all know, travel is a great way to reset the mind...and when doing so, there are few better spots in the world to reset than in New Zealand. It's a tramper's paradise. With some of the most striking scenery on the planet, the world’s best hut and track network, a small population, no dangerous wild animals, and good road access; it's no wonder it's become a world focus for outdoor adventure.
State of the Outbound is a short film that captures the pure heart of adventure and life on the road. Filmed over the course of a 13-day road trip through the North Island (Te Ika-a-Māui) and South Island (Te Waipounamu) of New Zealand; trampers, escape the speed of society, seeking to become a common thread, stitched into the fabric of the world. Loading what simple life essentials are needed into the packs, hucking it in the van, and hitting the open road in search of the virtues of the wilderness.
