Executive Producer - ‘The Adventure Effect’ for Youth Hostel Association and Cubo Agency

The Adventure Effect was a social experiment, presented as a mini documentary which we shot on location in the Lake District. If adventure is so important, what happens when you take it away? And what happens when you give it to those who’ve been missing out?

We placed a shipping container in the wilderness, transformed it into a lab and rigged it as a live multi-camera studio. Then for three days, we confined professional adventurer Alistair Humphreys inside it and asked him to complete a series of dull ‘non-adventures’. Meanwhile, we gave a group of children their first weekend of eye-opening activities that included white water canyoning. For both parties, it was life-changing in very different ways.
