First Draft

Forest Path

This story takes place in the world of vlogging, YouTube videos, and content creation.

The locations at the beginning of the story are all over the world - all the places you wish you could travel to - the ones that look amazing, unique, and beyond your reach.

Then the location changes, to the remote wilderness, where no one wants to be - where the audience and influence connected to vlogging and content creation disappear.

Genre, One-liner, Taglines

The Genre is Man vs. Wild... but not really.

It's actually content creation, travel vlogs, and YouTube videos. The stuff you watch on your phone that makes you wish you were somewhere else, doing something else - living a different life.
