The cinematographic result airs to the world today (May 20).

When asked what he hoped to achieve through his latest film entitled The Land Of, director Hunt responded: “I approached this project with a simple goal: to illustrate that travelling with a purpose and having a positive impact – no matter how big or small – is achievable for everyone. You just gotta do it.”

The Land Of is a three part web-series that follows a diverse group of five surfers as they travel through Thailand, seeking to find a sense of purpose as well as some sweet waves.

Along the way they collaborate with non-profits and communities to distribute ‘Waves for Water’ filters, take part in the Bangkok flood relief, lend a hand at Baan Santisuk orphanage, and teach local gromits how to catch waves and trust the ocean again, following the 2004 Tsunami.

A completely independent project, funded by those involved, The Land Of capitalises on the power of creative collaboration with stunning visual imagery captured by cinematographer Campbell Brown and music provided by emerging artists from across the globe – OXBLVD, Streets of Laredo, MT Warning, Jonny Higgins, Open Swimmer and Flood Coats.
