Jet-Setting on the Cheap

Written by Fuse Staff

Evan Engel '08 on location

Evan Engel ’08 found his first job after college online. “I heard about Jet Set Zero through Craigslist, of all places,” says Engel, who graduated with a cinema and photography degree from the Roy H. Park School of Communications. “They were impressed by the work I produced while still a student at IC, so I really have Park to thank for this job.”

The premise of Jet Set Zero is that anyone can live a jet-set life on zero dollars. The web series follows four strangers as they immerse themselves in a new culture for 90 days—finding jobs, places to live, and new friends. As a video producer, Engel documents their adventures for the world to see.

“Producing Jet Set Zero is an adventure,” says Engel, who’s filmed in Vietnam, Ecuador, and Thailand, “and every day I’m presented with new challenges.” One of his favorite moments so far: “watching the sunset from a mountaintop in Ecuador.”
