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.
