Volunteering with Alliance – Making of & Behind the Scenes


During the Summer of 2013 Break The Couch team had the chance to travel in 11 countries, meet 117 volunteers, make a roadtrip of 5294km filming the video “Volunteering with Alliance” (

We also visited cities, towns, villages, paths, museums, workcamps, police stations, airports, ports, train stations, spa, conferences and all sort of places.

We visited any kind of festivals: Bavaric festival, music festival, traditional festival, street festival, local cooking festival.

We used any kind of transportation: car, boat, airplanes, trains, metro, bikes, military vehicles, ferry, taxi, buses and as you imagine our feet.

We slept in the car, in hostels, in a military base shared with Dutch soldiers, on the floor, on a couch (without breaking it), on the deck of a ferry, in youth centers and a bit in our beds.

We filmed, we traveled, we learnt, we grew.

In this video we present the story behind the camera and some of the experiences we accumulated while filming the Alliance Video Project.
