Compelling stories of The American Dream
Two very distinctive yet magically intermixable formats:
The power of The American Dream is in the diversity, simplicity and reality of the stories being told and through the melding of two very distinctive yet magically intermixable formats: topical assembly of images and sound bites photographed before a white seamless backdrop and long-form produced segments.
Interview montage: In an energetic style, The American Dream will be guided by the various personalities coming and standing before its cameras creating an intimate portrait of revealed perspectives and emotions. Shown outside of their respective environments and in contrast to a stark white background, the full character and humanity of this country will be represented. From the barber on Main St. to the politician in Washington, the white-collar worker on Wall St. to the union representative in Chicago, the famous and the not so famous, each persons unscripted and unrehearsed statements and responses to a live interview on the American Dream will be photographed. The ﬁnal assembly will follow a salient and topical composition allowing a dynamic and artistic approach to editing through the diversity of its parts and yet the harmony of the sum.
An example of this amazing yet intimate style of ﬁlm making was given during the four-minute intro to The 2002 Academy Awards telecast by acclaimed ﬁlm maker, Errol Morris with his ﬁlm, "The Art of Film". Utilizing a combination of two Teleprompters and video cameras, a device known as The Interrotron, each participant will be interviewed while looking directly into the lens of the camera. This device projects a live image and the audio of the person off camera conducting the interview, allowing non-professional interview subjects the ease of simply having a relaxed conversation and the viewer seemingly eye-to-eye contact.
Long-form produced segments: In contrast, poignant longer formated stories, photographed documentary style and relating to the various themes within the tapestry of The American Dream, will be shown in their entirety. Portraits or glimpses into stories of people showing faith, giving, protest, success, spirit, adversity and triumph are all potential subjects. To each person who calls The United States home, the freedom of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is given. To show the make-up of our country and the varied responses to the very simple yet powerful principle and right of freedom is the point of this experience, The American Dream.
