Slow TV. Scenic drives - the road trip quarterly brings you independent slow-travel journalism documentaries through raw road trip movies shot in 48fps/1080p.

A new season of around 4 hours worth of ad-free documentaries will be published every quarter in 2019 and 2020.

Starting in January 2019, episodes will be released throughout the quarter.

8 seasons will be published initially.

When the community-based goal is met, more seasons will follow.

So if you join now, you'll get guaranteed access to 32 hours of unique video and are instrumental in unlocking more material in the near future.

So what are you waiting for? Pick a tier and start traveling & relaxing!

----------------------------

Why are you releasing these slow TV documentaries?

Simple. Something is missing in travel journalism these days.

Sure, it's great you can summarize incredible trips in a few posts & stories on Instagram. But they usually don't do the trip justice.

The surviving travel programs on TV don't help either as they've evolved into mass tourism marketing opportunities edited for quick consumption.

That's such a shame as traveling allows you to unwind, to get away from it all so you can reset your grey matter, get those creative juices flowing and face the rest of the year refreshed.

That's why it's time for something else.

Something immersive.

Something experienced at the speed of life but at the same time from the comfort of wherever you happen to relax.

That's where slow TV comes in.

Slow TV is all about giving you that relaxed feeling when you're traveling yourself.

Made famous by a Norwegian TV station years ago, it has found a global audience of viewers who seek total immersion instead of quick snaps and manipulated experiences.

Imagine just looking out the window at the beautiful scenery while you're driving in and to places you'd never imagined you'd visit yourself.

To maximize the reality part of the documentaries, they're edited to look as real as possible.

They help you relax because it's surprisingly mesmerizing to experience travel at the speed of life.

Another upshot is that you'll get great ideas for ultimate destinations and gorgeous road trips.

Better make room on that bucket list of yours!

But where's the music?

There's no music or soundtrack, that's up to you!

So get cracking on that perfect road trip playlist you always wanted to share and subscribe to the Turn up the radio tier or the Score that drive tier if you're starting as a creator. It's a great way to showcase your skills!

So sit back and relax or play these in the background as a screen saver. Whatever gets you relaxed and inspired.
