Determined, inspirational, and hard working, The Buried Life have been spreading their message of hope and will power for over six years and counting. “The Buried Life” was created by Ben Nemtin, Duncan and Jonnie Penn, and Dave Lingwood during their college years in Victoria, British Columbia, at a time when each gentleman was facing life’s most testing obstacles. What began as a list of 100 items they wanted to do before they died soon became the foundation for a documentary that they would begin ﬁlming themselves. Deciding that they had the power to accomplish all of their list items with enough hard work, they set out in an old RV to follow their wildest dreams. In the process, they also made a pact to help a stranger cross off one of their list items for every list item of their own that they were able to do.
After capturing enough footage to put together a pilot, the guys set out to cross of #53 on their list: “Start a Television Show”. Their pilot was soon picked up by MTV, and “The Buried Life” was brought to the network for a complete two seasons in 2010.
On March 27, 2012, The Buried Life released their debut book, “What Do You Want to Do Before You Die?” - one week later, they were able to cross off #19 on their list, “Write a Best Selling Book”, as the book went to #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers List after a week of being released.
