In 2014 Overlander.tv spent four months traveling the length and breadth of America, from Hollywood to the Wild West, from the Deep South to the Latin American vibes of Miami, from moonshine stills in the Tennessee Hills, to the frenetic pace of downtown New York, and finally visiting the post apocalyptic urban decay of Detroit and the rebirth of cool in the Rust Belt City of Cleveland.
Australian Filmmaker Mark Shea’s personable style features first person stories with locals at each destination he visited. It gives each story a candid insight into where America stands in what many call the Asian Century.
We are currently seeking travel industry sponsors for each destination video or straight out acquisition of the whole series
