I am posting here because Ant Village immediately came to mind, but I imagine that there are many different folks here on Permies that this could apply to:

I live in a housing co-op and we received the following email:
"Hi There,

I hope this email finds you well.

My name is Stephanie Lewis I'm a casting director working with MTV’s award-winning docu-series “True Life.” We are currently searching for young people who have, or who plan to leave conventional city life by joining a modern intentional community.

I wondered if anyone currently living with you, or who may be joining you soon, might be interested in the opportunity. I have posted our general casting announcement below, and I'd be happy to answer any questions for you. Please let me know if you can recommend anyone, as we'd love to share the journeys of a few young people for the show.

Thanks so much.


On this episode of “True Life” we’ll meet a few young people who have left the restrictions of traditional society behind, and who have joined a self-sustaining community. Do you dream of quitting the rat race to live amongst like-minded people in a rural area? Have you already left conventional society and have been immersed in communal life for a while? Are you considering leaving your commune to re-join conventional society? Whether you’re thinking of joining, have joined, or you’re thinking of leaving a commune, we’d like to talk to you.

If you are 18 or older, and have or are about to live on a commune, please send an email to [not going to put someone's email in public view pm me for the info] with your name, location, and a brief summary and photo of yourself.

Does this sound exciting to any of the Ants?
