** New for 2013 - Some of the interviews from this doco have been aired in audio only as part of the new "Visualmakers Audio Documentary" series on the NeedCreative Podcast! Plus all new interviews as well. Check them out at anticipatemedia.com/podcast
This is the trailer for a since cancelled documentary project for the now closed NeedCreative website. The project was eventually cancelled due to lack of a significant amount of quality resources and assets necessary to complete a final feature. Two days on a whim at NAB in April with little gear, time, or resources was not enough to get what was needed for a proper piece.
(In contrast, my most recent work, a far better 27 minute documentary about the 10th anniversary of 9/11/01 entitled "Why We're Here", took many months to film and more months to edit. Unfortunately at this time I'm not allowed to show it to the general public.)
That said, I don't think big ideas should be ignored. 10,000 people responded positively to this piece, even if it wasn't particularly well shot or executed, because they were inspired by the concept. Therefore I decided to repost it as a historical work.
While at this time I don't plan on expanding the concept any further, I hope someone sees this and is at least inspired to do something more. Whether that's a film, a proper "Visualmakers" with inspiration credit to this trailer, or just to keep plugging away as a nascent filmmaker - I hope someone's moved… again.
I've created far better work since and before this trailer, but in a sense the idea behind this trailer is one of the best. I hope it resonates with you.
My sincere thanks to all who participated in this project.
