Free Range Humans, an original digital content series from Corona Studios is now available on YouTube. The series follows eight people – including two South Africans – who left their unfulfilling indoor lives to follow their passions and live an authentic, purpose-driven life close to nature.
The launch of the series took place at the V&A Waterfront on Thursday, where a "caged human", Clifford Young, was released from a giant glass box where he had spent 15 hours a day for five days, living his life indoors and online, symbolic of a "caged" modern lifestyle. The other actors, Amahle Mtengenya and Nina Erasmus, who were also "boxed" in similar circumstances in Sandton City and Fourways Mall, respectively, were also released.
Starring SA's first black free diving instructor, Zandile Ndhlovu and Cape foodie forager Roushanna Gray, in Free Range Humans both share how they disconnected from their previous careers and turned their passions into a fulfilling, outdoor lifestyle.
The 6-10 minute episodes celebrate the stories of the cast as they challenged a conventional lifestyle to overcome obstacles and fully embrace their passions, ranging from underwater art sculpting to the development of an influential female surf school. Each story offers insight and inspiration into what a rich life can be when we just take that first step.
"My journey began the moment I looked beneath the surface of the water, and then her embrace," says Zandile, an account manager turned free diver. "I just knew I had to find a way to make this my life. Teaching Freediving has empowered me to introduce communities who previously had no access to the ocean, to bridge the gap of fear and encourage new exploration while holding space. The power of my passion meeting my purpose, encourages me keep going everyday".
Roushanna went from food services to a forager, and is now renowned for her unique sea foraging and cooking skills. "It's been an absolute honour to share my story on Free Range Humans. The sea holds memory, knowledge, nutrition and freedom among a multitude of other gifts. I am grateful knowing that I am doing something that not only fulfils my purpose and passion but also working towards highlighting seaweeds as a sustainable food source for our planet and oceans."
