During his early 20’s, AntonyD’Oliveira felt that something had to change in his life. He lived in the suburbs of Paris, working just to get by...Antony realized that there was something missing and was determined to search for it. Moreover, he felt that this period in his life was monotonous and wearing him down. Mr D’Oliveira picture daily life full of adventures and wanted to explore the world to encounter all the various perspectives of existence. With this in mind, he decided to begin his journey and execute his first jump.
Specifically, he wanted to separate the space between action and fear and embark on a ride to discover what lays beyond the ocean. As a result, Antony realized that traveling was more than just adventures and begun to embrace it as a lifestyle. He understood that most things are possible and manageable if one decides to work hard. We just got to keep moving forward.
The JUMPS of tomorrow
Over the years, I discovered my true passion for documenting and sharing everything around me through pictures and video recording. As I travel around the world, I interview the people I encounter, producing a documentary series everywhere I go. My goal is to raise awareness of racial inequality, violation of human rights, and by the same token search for efficient solutions to create a better world. This focus gives me strength to continue sharing the knowledge and experiences I have gained with the people I meet on every edge of the world. I strongly believe that change is necessary and explore for ways to share that belief.
I am seeking potential media producers or filmmakers who share the same philosophy, who wish to collaborate on a project utilising the vast footage I have accumulated.
