Before the 2008 presidential elections I was turning in circles wondering what I could do to make a difference. My friend Lee Hirsch (leehirsch.net/1./home_1.html) was thinking the same thing and he came up with this way of giving a voice to the people living in in battleground states.
Lee went to Missouri, I took a crew to Nevada, and Alicia Dwyer (laist.com/2008/10/27/la_filmmaker_produces_local_voices.php) went to Ohio. Eugene Hedlund of Truth and Hope.org (truthandhope.org/) brought in his PAC. We raised the funds and postproduction donated their services.
The result was fifteen 60 second ads that aired in the final weeks, really making a difference in the final election results.
