On average, people spend 90% of their lives indoors,*and in the nine months since lockdowns started around the world, this has felt more real than ever. For many, this reality has sparked a growing desire to be outside and explore a lifestyle away from the familiar urban jungle and closer to nature. Increasingly, this has led to populations fleeing large cities** in search of a more fulfilling life. As a brand linked to the beach and nature, Corona is addressing this shift with the launch of its new original content series, Free Range Humans. The series, which celebrates real-life individuals who made the leap, aims to inspire those pursuing meaningful lives outside to take that next step once the pandemic subsides. Corona believes our best selves are experienced outside, and it is with this mantra that the brand is delivering a first-in-kind series to provide much needed escapism with the credibility that few can. The series is the first global content franchise from the Anheuser Busch InBev (AB InBev) brand, which operates and markets Corona exclusively outside of the US. Free Range Humans is an eight-part digital content series celebrating individuals that chose to break from routine in pursuit of more fulfilling lives outside. The series comes out of the newly launched Corona Studios, and marks the first of many content-led initiatives for the brand, who is expanding its entertainment footprint to engage consumers more deeply across their passion points. Free Range Humans can be viewed on Corona’s Youtube channel and other social platforms. For many, a relaxed, outdoor way of life is a mere daydream. Through its 6-10 minute episodes, Free Range Humans offers mental disconnection for those indoors and celebrates the stories of individuals around the world who made this a reality. They challenged a conventional lifestyle to overcome obstacles and fully embrace their passions, ranging from underwater art sculpting to the development of an influential female surf school. Each story offers insight and inspiration into what a rich life can be when we just make that first step. Free Range Humans season one features:

Bruna Bessa, a Brazilian public relations associate turned surf instructor and founder of Mare Alta, a women’s empowerment surf camp that hosts retreats around the world.
Juan Pablo Bueno, a Colombian biologist who built an eco-friendly resort in the jungle of La Macarena without disturbing a single tree.
Mario Rigby, a Canadian influencer who gave up a potential Olympic career to become a world traveler focused on breaking cultural perceptions by helping people discover new places and people around the world
Emily Penn, a Cambridge-trained architect turned ocean advocate from the UK who leads sailing expeditions to eradicate plastic from our oceans.
Jason deCaires Taylor, a UK artist who used his passion and talent to create underwater sculptures that become coral reefs and marine ecosystems.
Roushanna Gray, a South African sustainable coastal forager who educates students about the edible treasures that nature has to offer.
Zandile Ndhlovu, who broke through cultural barriers to become the first Black freediving instructor in South Africa.
Darci Liu, a dancer who became China’s first professional surfer, using her knowledge to inspire and change perception as a surf coach, eco-entrepreneur, and environmental advocate. Free Range Humans marks the formal launch of Corona Studios, a new venture within the brand to provide high quality, consistent, and entertaining content to consumers. With Corona Studios, the brand will build deeper consumer connections through story-led content across its passion point verticals of travel, surf lifestyle, sustainability, wellness, and the creative arts. Over the last nine months, the brand has set the stage for this platform, producing over 30 films in collaboration with dozens of local, world class creators. As the platform expands, Corona Studios aims to diversify its content base across relevant formats and verticals, from long form videos to short form clips and more. Free Range Humans was originally conceived by Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam and developed as a global entertainment platform by Pereira O’Dell.
