Castaways Doc

Yellow and White Simple Introvert Movie Poster.png

"Castaways" is a doc currently being filmed that exists to shed light on Long COVID & the fallout from the COVID Pandemic. It features COVID Long Hauler, Devin Russell, traveling the United States & Canada in a renovated 2000 Fleetwood Sunrise 32V RV doing in-person interviews with fellow COVID Longer Haulers, researchers, & others.

 

There are many angles to Long COVID. Additionally, there are several other groups of people who have been harmed by the COVID Pandemic as well. This doc aims to shed light on these people. Their challenges need to be illuminated in order for society as a whole to do better for these people suffering still, some going on more than 4 years now. They need the adequate help they deserve.

 

The series is currently funded personally by Devin Russell. The Long COVID Foundation may provide support regarding editing, music cost, & other technical aspects of the series, but not for costs such as the cameras, campgrounds, gasoline, food, & general living expenses for the trip.

 

The aim is to get the something out by 2024/2025 and try to get on to a streaming service for mass exposure. Please contact if you have any interest in being interviewed or have any other comments. You can find more information on X @CastawaysDoc.
