Hi everyone,

We've just released the trailer for our new documentary called Living the Change: Inspiring Stories for a Sustainable Future. The film explores solutions to the issues the world is facing including permaculture, regenerative agriculture, local currencies, waste minimisation, composting, and more!
Below is the trailer for the film!



I'd love to hear what you think

Hi everyone, I'm really excited to be releasing this documentary I've been working on for the past 18 months! It's about a community that formed in Australia to be involved in this film and to explore simple living, natural building, permaculture, and living in community. I lived in the community for the year-long experiment, documenting the building of tiny houses, veggie gardens, and community life. We decided to release the film for free online so we can get it out to as many people as possible and to not restrict it to people who can afford to buy it. I hope you all enjoy it.



You can also download a copy of the film at a pay what you want price at http://happenfilms.com/a-simpler-way

Please share the film around! The reason we made it free is so as many people as possible can see it

We need more of these stories of "upper class" people converting to the permaculture lifestyle. They help show that Permaculture is a global solution for everyone.



Thanks Alex!

Hi everyone, I made this film about a guy who quit his job in the finance industry and created an amazing permaculture property. I hope you enjoy it!




This film was made as part of our Living the Change series. For this series we're traveling around New Zealand making short documentary films about permaculture farms, tiny houses, and sustainability.

You can find more permaculture films on my website http://happenfilms.com.

Hi everyone, at the beginning of next year I'm going on a road trip around New Zealand in a waste vegetable oil-powered van making short films about permaculture, tiny houses, natural building, communities, simple livers, sustainability projects, and anyone with an inspiring story to tell, with the hopes of making change in the world.

I'm running a crowdfunding campaign to fund the trip, so if you like what we're doing please consider contributing at http://igg.me/at/livingthechange

Our aim is to make fifteen short films while on the road, as well as films of the camper conversion for people interested in converting their own vans to run on waste vegetable oil. These short films will be available on YouTube for free and the entire collection along with footage of the journey itself will be edited into a two-hour documentary that will be available early for Indiegogo contributors and sold to the public at a later date.

Below is a list of the people and places we'll be visiting so far:

-Robert and Robyn Guyton's beautiful 20-year-old food forest in Riverton
- Wairarapa Eco Farm, the first and largest Community Supported Agriculture farm in New Zealand.
- Te Manaia Organics, large-scale vegetable growers now part of filmmaker James Cameron's exciting permaculture and food forestry enterprise in New Zealand.
- Helen Dew, founding member of Living Economies, passionate speaker on savings pools and alternative currencies, life-long vegetable gardener, seed-saver and an incredibly active member of her local community – all at the grand age of 78.
- Avonstour Heritage Organic Farm, specialising in heritage animal breeds and sellers of high-quality organic meat.
- Innermost Gardens, an exciting community garden project in Wellington.
- Project Lyttelton, a non-profit organization creating a sustainable community through timebanking, community gardens, festivals, and lots more in the town of Lyttelton.
- Hand Over a Hundy, a great initiative to help people start their own vegetable gardens.
- WindWillow, beautiful baskets made from willow grown on their own property.
- The Vinbrux family, practicing self-sufficiency on their 34-acre property in Oamaru.
- Be The Change NZ, an inspiring father and son who travel by bike around NZ sharing stories of change.

Thanks
