• Neli’s Big Adventure

    Multimedia/Multiplatform Storytelling & Social Activism

    “The true story of a small dog overlanding Mexico and Central America.”

    NELI’S BIG ADVENTURE is a multimedia travel, art and volunteering project. Chunky Baby Productions’ own Victoria Palmer, Jason Chase Tyrrell and their Chihuahua mix Neli will leave from Venice, California on October 1st, 2013 and drive down the Pan American Highway. Over six months and 5,000+ miles, the Adventurers will visit Mexico and Central America, contributing time, money and passion to animal rescue and children’s organizations.

    The goal for NELI’S BIG ADVENTURE is to pair artistic expression with social activism that makes a difference for individuals and communities in need. During the journey the Adventurers will regularly update their official website, which will act as the foundation for a series of animated children’s films focused on travel, cultural diversity and the importance of animal rescue. At least one of the screenplays will be written in transit. In addition, the Adventurers will be taking thousands of pictures and hundreds of hours of HD video, which will become the raw materials for a series of short documentaries and a coffee table photo book. Neli will emerge as a fun and relatable character, the voice behind the website and Twitter feeds and the hero of a children’s book that will be written after the journey is complete.
