Walking off the beaten track and striving for the next adventure has already connected Michelle and Liam during the two years of studying photography at ,,die Graphische" in Vienna, where they also got to know each other.
In the winter of 2019, an idea came up that would put all previous trips in the shade and give all upcoming trips a new meaning. A month through Norway by kayak. But why go the easy way when there is a more challenging option as well. Everything only transported by train: People, kayak, food, equipment. A total of six backpacks and more than our own body weight. No effort was spared to show that adventures can also be experienced away from the usual environment, and getting there as "green" as possible. The movie about our first trip can be seen here.
The current project "Danube21" revolves around the water quality and environmental pollution of the Danube. For this matter we built a boat from recycled materials and traveled 1000 kilometers from Kritzendorf (Austria) to Drobeta Turnu Severin (Romania). Along the way we collected water samples to analyze its components concerning micro-plastics and filmed interviews with locals as well as environment focused institutions.
We plan to wrap our stories and photos into lectures and also publish another documentary in spring 2022.
She’s a one-woman-show. Self employed Michelle represents a brain for visual content, from event-photography to filmmaking and out-of-the-box ideas. She truly lives for the story and is currently working as a sled dog guide in lapland.
He’s a jack of all trades. No matter what’s up, he’ll give you a hand. As personification of a positive mindset he finds ways around, no matter how sticky a situation. He enjoys climbing and manual work.
