NOMADIC LIFE FILMS ANNOUNCES MARC & JULIE BENNETT OF RVLOVE JOINING RV NOMADS MOTION PICTURE PROJECT

PROMINENT YOUTUBERS, SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS POWER-COUPLE & FOUNDERS OF RV SUCCESS SCHOOL TO TAKE LEAD ROLE IN FILM PROJECT 

(MILWAUKEE, WI) – Nomadic Life Films, the studio behind RV Nomads (www.OpenRoadRVNomads.com), an upcoming feature length cinematic documentary exploring the full time RV movement, announced today that Marc and Julie Bennett will join the project in an expanded capacity. The Bennetts will take part in the film’s story arc as full time RVing cast members and will help manage development for the production studio. They will also serve as project advisors as production begins in 2018.

Marc and Julie are well known in the full time RV movement, having successfully established their brand (RVLove) as one of the most visible and respected resources for RVers of all stripes. They also founded and manage the RV Success School, a learning system considered by many RVers and industry brands to be on the leading edge of online training for RVers of all levels of experience.

Aside from being experienced and respected full-time RVers, the creators of RVLove.com and personalities behind their popular YouTube channel, Marc and Julie Bennett bring a combined wealth of business and marketing experience to the RV Nomads film project. In their previous careers, they have both worked on inspiring, high profile projects backed by a passionate movement that has helped elevate each project’s success,

Until recently, Marc Bennett was Director of Operations for a highly successful e-commerce company that grew from zero to nearly half a billion dollars in sales in 4 years, working with the executive team to support the company through an exponential growth period. Prior to that, Marc was Program Manager and Contest Judge for the internationally renowned Body-for-LIFE fitness contest (based on the book by New York Times bestselling author Bill Phillips) and recruited, inspired and trained high caliber representatives for the transformational Body-for-LIFE movement. Marc’s first experience in a luxury RV was when he led a high profile national tour traveling the USA in a fully wrapped Body-for-LIFE branded Prevost Class A Motorhome to maximize media publicity while distributing prizes to Champions (contest winners) around the country while managing a multi-million dollar budget.

As a communications and marketing entrepreneur, Julie Bennett worked and promoted several internationally renowned bestselling authors and was involved in the related grass-roots marketing campaigns for 3 documentaries in niche markets, including the smash hit The Secret which grossed over $65M in domestic DVD Sales, What the Bleep Do We Know, a viral marketing sleeper hit that grossed over $16M globally and Indigo, which played in 603 locations around the world and grossed $1.2M. Julie built a startup company, taking it from zero to $1M in revenue in 3 years, as it became a leading industry brand in the area of personal transformation. She also Project Managed the PwC Forbes Global CEO Conference in Sydney, Australia and managed the public relations for job site Monster.com and parent global advertising agency TMP Worldwide.

Marc and Julie bring to the RV Nomads story an incredible sub-narrative of entrepreneurship that will translate on film in a powerful way. Their partnership with the studio will push tremendous new potential into the mix as the motion picture begins to gain steam going into the 2018 production and full release phases.

The Bennetts live in a 2012 Tiffin Allegro Open Road 36’ gas motorhome and tow a 2006 MINI Cooper S Convertible for exploring and running errands. Their YouTube channel boasts more than 15,000 subscribers and nearly a million and a half video views. Their combined social media reach as influencers is extraordinary and the content they publish is highly regarded by RVers and industry alike.

Their partnership in the film project is monumental and the studio is thrilled to be working alongside them as the movie begins to take shape.

Nomadic Life Films, in partnership with Square House Creative, is today releasing details of initial distribution platforms that will be available for the RV Nomads motion picture. While the studio is working with a distribution partner to promote the project to content platforms such as Amazon Prime and Netflix, the film will always be available through the platforms described below.

There will be two initial versions of the film released to the public when the final cut is approved in the fall of 2018.

  • Free On-Demand: The full movie will be available in a high definition ad-supported format available for unlimited streaming via RV Nomads TV.
  • Premium Multi-Platform On-Demand: Viewers can purchase an ad-free high definition unlimited streaming option that will come packed with a behind-the-scenes mini-documentary, deleted scenes and additional bonus content. Physical versions of the film will also be available for purchase, including a limited edition DVD and/or Blu-Ray. The premium version of the film will also be housed at RV Nomads TV.

Let’s take a closer look at ways you’ll be able to watch the movie.

WATCH THE MOVIE FOR FREE!

Our goal from day one has always been to tell this amazing story and make it available to as many viewers as possible. The story arc is designed to be entertaining and informative for both those who have been RVing for some time and those who may be just learning about it or starting to consider it. It’s a powerful story and we want it to reach a wide audience.

With this being the case, we’re going to take a leap of faith and make the movie available for FREE!

To watch the movie for free all you’ll need to do is visit the official free on-demand stream site that will be hosted on the RV Nomads TV website. The streaming page isn’t there yet because the movie isn’t finished. But when it’s ready you’ll be able to gather your friends and family and stream the movie in high definition as many times as you want!

The video player works great with desktops that airplay to TV’s, mobile devices and smart TV’s with web browser capabilities.

How can we afford to do this? There will be a few ads thrown into the mix. While putting a few ads in the timeline is probably not our favorite thing to do, the reality is this is a very expensive project and streaming high definition video isn’t cheap.

UPGRADE TO PREMIUM AD-FREE

Those wanting to watch the video in a lot of other environments and applications, with a lot more goodies thrown in and no ads, can certainly do so by purchasing the premium version of the film.

This on-demand high definition version will be available via the following:

  • Roku
  • Apple tvOS/iTunes/iOS
  • Amazon Firestick
  • Google/Android
  • Web (Direct)

The premium version of the movie will include a mini-documentary from the Producer and Director showing the production process, how this all got started and what all went into the making of the movie. It will also include deleted scenes and a plethora of other bonus content.

In addition to the premium streaming version, viewers will have the option of purchasing a limited edition DVD and/or Blu-Ray.

Note: Those pre-ordering the film through RV Nomads Gear will not have to re-purchase and will be sent a password to access the premium version of the film.

We’re very excited to be entering production for the film and we can’t wait to share this story with the world!

Open Road Today is home to Nomadic Life Media, LLC and Nomadic Life Films, the production studio behind the RV Nomads motion picture and RV Nomads TV.

RV NOMADS MOVIE ANNOUNCES FULL TIME RVER COUPLE SEAN & JULIE CHICKERY TO JOIN CAST

COUPLE SERVED 20 YEARS IN U.S. AIR FORCE THEN MOVED INTO AN RV

 

(MILWAUKEE, WI)Nomadic Life Films, the studio behind RV Nomads (www.OpenRoadRVNomads.com), an upcoming feature length cinematic documentary exploring the full time RV movement, announced today that Air Force Veterans Sean and Julie Chickery are joining the cast and will appear in the movie. The film is set for a tentative release in the fall of 2018 and will tell the story of the full time RV movement like it has never been told before.

Sean, a Doctor in Health Science, is a Medical Research Study Manager, and Julie is a Content Manager. The couple work full-time from theirHeartland Cyclone 4200 Fifth Wheel Toy Hauler, working together to juggle professional careers with a heavy dose of adventure whenever and wherever possible.

“As working professionals, we’re especially excited about participating in this project to share with others that they don’t have to wait for retirement to pursue their dreams,” the couple said in response to being signed on for the film. “We are proof that you can continue your professional careers and enjoy your life while traveling around North America. After serving 20 years in the US Air Force, we’ve also grown to love travel and meeting people from all walks of life. One of the things we really enjoy about full timing is meeting other RVers from all walks of life, exchanging stories, and realizing we are part of a larger community. “

Hundreds of thousands of Americans are beginning to see the full time RV life as a solution to personal woes brought about by a sense of being locked down to the “rat race” of traditional living. RV Nomads is being produced to explore a cultural shift happening across America and the Chickery story is an important part of the overall picture.

Sean and Julie live on the open road with their cat (Callie), moving along at their own pace and enjoying the freedom of full time travel. They prefer full hook-up campground stays and have been living full time in an RV since 2014.

Their travels are documented via their website ChickerysTravels.com (www.ChickerysTravels.com) and their Facebook page Chickery’s Travels.

Nomadic Life Films looks forward to telling the Chickery story through RV Nomads. The film producers firmly believe viewers will be entertained, informed and extremely fascinated when learning about their journey of extraordinary personal discovery through the full time RV life.

RV NOMADS MOVIE ANNOUNCES SOLO RVER KELLY BEASLEY TO JOIN CAST

SHE SOLD EVERYTHING AND HAS LIVED IN A TRAVEL TRAILER FOR 2 YEARS

 

(MILWAUKEE, WI)Nomadic Life Films, the studio behind RV Nomads (www.OpenRoadRVNomads.com), an upcoming feature length cinematic documentary exploring the full time RV movement, announced today that solo full time RVer Kelly Beasley is officially a cast member and will appear in the movie. The movie is currently moving into an early production phase and is scheduled for full release in the fall of 2018.

In 2014 Beasley decided to sell most of her belongings, purchased a travel trailer and moved out of her three bedroom home in favor of full time life on the open road. For the past two years she’s been on a full time adventure, exploring America’s back-country and living a nomadic life of freedom wherever she wants, when she wants and how she determines.

“I came to a crossroads in life,” Beasley said. “I could either trudge forward with the same old same old, or I could make RV life a reality. If I gave up a few things, I could gain so much more. Now I live on the cheap, and will be spending money on things I WANT to spend it on, not on travel to and from work, a too-expensive rental or mortgage, high electricity bills, home repair, clothes to appear nice at work, etc. Life is more exciting. I haven’t been depressed a day on the road.”

Beasley’s life changing decision is one tens of thousands of Americans are now joining her in. Full time RV life is catching on across the nation and many RVers now view it as a minimalist movement to unplug from traditional life in favor of more control over how they live.

“A sleeping giant is waking up,” said a spokesperson for Nomadic Life Films. “A cultural shift is happening and many Americans are beginning to realize they’ve been misled on what the American dream is. It doesn’t have to be about extreme debt, 60+ hour work weeks and pre-determined routine. The digital age has made it possible for us to choose a simpler life with a lot more liberty to do as we choose, when we choose to do it.”

Indeed, growth in the RV industry is breaking records. In an economy where many retailers are struggling to identify consumers willing to spend, recreational vehicle sales totals are beating virtually every other consumer goods industry. RV life is quickly becoming more mainstream, and as it does the number of those who choose to live it full time is dramatically increasing.

Beasley and her dogs spend most of their time “boondocking” off the beaten path. She prefers remote camping spots where she can enjoy solitude, beautiful views and the ability to explore areas where fewer venture due to the off grid nature of these locations.

She documents her journey through her personal website at RVChickadee.com (www.rvchickadee.com) and manages a popular RV guide website at CampAddict.com (www.campaddict.com).

Nomadic Life Films looks forward to telling Beasley’s story through RV Nomads. The film producers firmly believe viewers will be entertained, informed and extremely fascinated when learning about her journey of extraordinary personal discovery through the full time RV life.
