About Mark Ordesky

In my Bruce Wayne life, I make films and television. I’m probably best known for executive producing “The Lord Of The Rings” trilogy.

In my Batman life, I’m a student of self sufficiency and emergency preparedness.

Not John Goodman in “10 Cloverfield Lane” with a survival bunker under my yard. I experiment with gear, study and develop readiness skills, and try out different approaches to organizing my life — home, work, and travel — to be, if not disaster proof, at least disaster resistant.

The result is two parts Samwise Gamgee, one part Marie Kondo. If the bartender was Tim Ferriss.

These are my adventures in self-reliant lifestyle design.

And as I believe passionately in the power of community as a hub of wisdom, compassion and resources, I hope we can grow ours together.
