Documentary Production 

Our first feature documentary film, Double Barrel follows surf and travel journalist Angie Davis' journey to Peru to document Peruvian surf guide Harold Koechlin’s dream of protecting Peru’s world-class surf breaks. After a chance meeting, the two compared tales of living through natural and human-inflicted disasters, and their dreams for sustainable surf development and tourism. Focussed in the oil-dominated town of Lobitos, Harold is working together with the local and international community and is determined to preserve the locals’ right to a clean ocean and environment to give towns like Lobitos a more sustainable future.

the laps tv

The Laps is a reality adventure travel TV series created and produced by Switchboard Media, following its two Australian hosts Dustin Hollick and Rhian Slapp around 10 island nations, with no cash, no car, no phone, and just 10 personal items each.

The series will calculate the boys’ daily consumption of oil, water and food and compare this with average consumption levels within each location, thus delivered as a science experiment bringing great awareness to local and global environmental issues and opportunities for solutions. 

The Cast are the conduit to encourage the audience to question their daily habits and the effect their actions have on the planet they depend upon to survive. “There is no business to be done on a dead planet.” – David Bower.

Who We Are


angie Davis

Director | WRITER | producer | Concepts

Angie balances life between travel, production, surfing and raising two wild sons. Angie was based in Japan for almost a decade as a journalist with a strong focus in social impact travel and surfing. She relocated back home to Australia post-Fukushima disaster and wore the hat of Travel Producer and Editor at Yahoo!7 before founding Switchboard Media Group in 2014 and embarking on her first environmental travel documentary film "Double Barrel" in north Peru. The film premiered at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and is currently touring the globe in three languages.

Angie is producer of the adventure travel TV series "The Laps", is dedicated to empowering women through storytelling and supporting women's rights, and co-creates post-graduate transmedia storytelling courses with Dustin Hollick and the Laureate University Australia's "The Delta Experience."

Dustin Hollick

Director | WRITER | producer | Concepts

Family man Dustin grew up in the freezing waters of Tasmania, bobbing around on fishing boats and building sites. Through his isolated upbringing Dustin forged a strong connection with nature, which he expressed through short stories, playwriting, and making indie surf films. Dustin joined Angie working on “Double Barrel” in 2014 and then came on board as co-owner of Switchboard, where they now run the business out of a rural studio “The Dream Factory” perched on a lush acre a stone’s throw from the coast.

Dustin stars in the upcoming TV series: The Laps TV, a concept he has been developing for almost 10 years. Together with local Lennox Head mate Rhian Slapp, the guys will set off on a global quest to consume less, with just 10 personal items and 10 big islands to 'lap".

 

At Switchboard Media our team shares over a decade of experience in travel and lifestyle publishing, digital media, editing, copywriting, film, and TV production. Continually evolving in tune to the industry, our skilled team prides ourselves in creating exciting and original works.
