Description

In an inspiring new season on public television, Roadtrip Nation’s documentary series follows the journey of three young adults looking to define their own roads in life as they travel the country in Roadtrip Nation’s iconic green RV interviewing innovators and leaders in design. Throughout eight half-hour episodes, viewers go on a whirlwind journey that crosses 21 states and covers 6,300 miles as the road-trippers meet with designers of all kinds--from animators to engineers, storytellers to entrepreneurs--to find inspiration and guidance from individuals who have built careers doing what they love. As the road-trippers get farther from where they started, the stories and experiences collected on the road stretch their idea of what's possible, giving them the inspiration and conviction they need to take the next steps in their own lives. Season 12’s three road-trippers--Ben, Martha, and Sofaya--are all drawn to design from different angles but don’t know what shape their interest will take now that they’re each ready to chart their paths post-college. 24-year-old Ben was born, raised, and educated in Rhode Island and he’s craving exposure to places and ideas outside the borders of his home state, preferably related to the things he likes best: music, surfing, and other adventures. Martha, 22, grew up in a family of designers--her dad is a video game designer and her mom is an architect--but she’s kept her studies broad and now she’s ready to zero in on what’s next, but she doesn’t know where to start. 22-year-old Sofaya studied industrial design at the Rhode Island School of Design, but her parents, who immigrated from Haiti, are pushing her to choose a “safe” path that will lead to a steady career. Throughout 28 thought-provoking interviews, the road-trippers hear perspective-shifting advice from a wide range of leaders in design, including: Patagonia designer John Rapp, Tina Roth Eisenberg a.k.a. swissmiss, Wayne Unten of Disney’s Frozen, Ben Burtt of Skywalker Sound, Pixar’s Ralph Eggleston, Snap Judgment’s Glynn Washington, and many more.
