Casting Call: TV Series Seeks Seasteaders

 

Your dream to leave land behind and experience a new life at sea is now a possibility.

The Seasteading Institute is consulting with a new unscripted television series for a major cable network. The show is seeking a variety of experts and survivalists ready to create a new community on the ocean while building, engineering, and rehabbing residential quarters. If you have what it takes to survive challenging weather and sea conditions, if you have a yearning desire to experiment with ocean-based technologies, if you can bring a skill set that will add to the sea-villages development, then this is an opportunity for you.

If interested, email casting@optomenusa.com and please CC: info@seasteading.org by March 1, 2015 with:

  • Your name and age
  • A brief bio about your interest in seasteading and why you’d like to participate in the program
  • The skills you could bring to this new society (survival, engineering, scientific, homesteading, environmental, etc.)
  • A clear photograph
  • Any video links or Youtube channels you may have

unscripted television series
 
In other words, a reality show. So another show like “Utopia” that will take a bunch of people, purposefully hand-picked so as to accentuate their personality differences, and subject them to ridiculous situations in order to boost ratings…and one person will be “banished” each week after a group vote. Great…just what seasteading needs…

If and when it becomes economically worthwhile to settle Antarctica or the moon, the effort might very well need to be “kickstarted” by a similar publicity stunt. I like the idea IF it can lead to a viable community. But “kicking people off the island” would ruin that prospect. I want to hear more from both SI and the show people first.

I’d also like to hear something about what SI has and needs in terms of job skills.

I would definitely be interested in this. We are not far off from the first seastead.
