***3 MORE ALISON'S ADVENUTRES FILMS***

With her surfboard in hand, Alison sets off to the land down under in search of some Aussie waves but instead finds herself wrapped up in a wild adventure through the Australian bush with one of the greatest survivalists on the planet: Cockatoo Paul - a bush tucker who always has a Cockatoo perched on his shoulder. Following this wild Crocodile Dundee-type character through the treacherous Australia wilderness, Alison learns some of the most valuable survival methods, and discovers how to eat things she didn’t know were edible, and how to heal a serious injury with only plant remedies. Together they brave the outback on a quest to find a cave with paintings said to depict answers to the survival of our planet as a whole - if they can survive the journey! Children will learn one of a kind lessons in living off the land without depleting resources, and uncover knowledge about aboriginal culture before it’s lost forever.The Secrets of the Grand Canyon
Alison sets off down the Grand Canyon with a wild raft guide from New Zealand who has an uncanny resemblance to the young Brad Pitt. Together the comedic duo take on some of the biggest rapids in world, on both raft and paddle board, on their search to uncover an ancient Native American “secret to success” referenced in a mysterious book passed down through generations of families who’d passed through earth’s deepest passageways. What they find lurking between the canyon walls is more then they expected to encounter, and through the experience, they learn that water is the secret to “success” and survival of our planet. Through the entertaining story, children will learn lessons in geography, geology, and most importantly about the importance of preserving and protecting our waters as all life depends up it!The Golden Camel
Alison teams up with Israeli surf pros to check out the Mediterranean coastline and surf near some of the oldest civilizations in the world. But when the swell proves to be flat, Alison heads to the Red Sea for some underwater exploration and, while cave diving at the Egyptian border she finds a golden camel amulet. Wanting to know the meaning of the mysterious object, Alison sets off on a wild adventure on camel-back through the Negev Desert and the sacred sections of Jerusalem, only to discover that the camel has a compelling story of its own from ancient Bedouin times. A story that will teach children about our “one-ness” on this planet and symbolic importance of the golden rule over the gold itself.IF I EXCEED THESE FUNDS:
I can complete the editing of the rest of the 14 films in the series listed below:Daniel Kereopa “Family Matters ” · NEW ZEALAND Mila “Dreams do come True ” · INDONESIA The Haunted Treehouse “Respect Will Set You Free ” · FIJI Mummified “Don’t Judge a Mummy by it’s Cover ” · PERUVIAN COAST THE PROCESS IN A COCONUT SHELL:
Since the editor is essentially the director in documentary film making, I do all the editing for Alison’s Adventures films on my own as I like to carefully craft entertaining stories that hold valuable messaging. Each film can take me anywhere from 3 months to a year depending on the amount of footage and complexity of the subject matter - and how much elephant poop gets stuck in my microphones etc. Over the years I have built a relationship with a great team of experts around the world that have worked hard, volunteering their time to complete the cinematography, photography, graphics, motion graphics, and sound design. I can’t wait to pay them for the countless hours they will put into these next films!WHO IS ALISON TEAL?
Alison Teal is a soul surfer, survivor, and adventurer. She spent her childhood home-schooled in a whirlwind of high adventure by her extreme expedition parents — her father being a world-renowned photographer who’s been numerously featured on the cover of National Geographic, and her mother a legendary Yogi.
Alison grew up living in some of the most primitive, inaccessible, and often dangerous mountains, jungles, and uncharted wilderness areas that cover the face of this planet.
Now that Alison is old enough to drive her own camel, she is setting off with her backpack and surfboard on wild bikini-clad adventures around the world, offering her viewers a special passport into her global family and their mind blowing cultures through humor and inspiration.
In each episode, Alison finds a local companion who guides her through their universe, and offers viewers a first hand look into their secrets to survival, sustainability, and happiness.
With Alison’s fearless passion for life, and comedic timing, she dives into communities living off the beaten path to unearth customs and curious traditions, investigate ancient myths and legends, and entertain audiences through storytelling that captures the mystery and intrigue of the cultures Alison grew up in.
