The American Dream video is based on the fear of success, this thought is extremely powerful, fear has the ability to cripple us from pursuing our dreams. The moment I embraced my dreams it was as if the universe had drawn people to help us and share their stories. Our goal is to tell the stories of the people who live in America. Your support is the driving force behind our project. We could not have done this without you. We have made it this far because you shared and supported us through our social networking sites. We were able to connect with the people in this film because of the internet. Every time you share or like this project it brings us one step closer to photographing your town, people you know, possibly even you.

Paul Mawhinney was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. Over the years he has amassed what has become the world's largest record collection. Due to health issues and a struggling record industry Paul is being forced to sell his collection.
This is the story of a man and his records. I hope you enjoy it.
On an unseasonably warm November night in Manhattan on our way to get ice cream, we stumbled upon what appeared to be a vintage shop, brightly lit display window and all. As we began to walk in, a man sitting out front warned us that we were welcome to explore, but nothing inside was for sale. Our interests piqued, we began to browse through the collections the man out front had built throughout his life. This is a story of a man and his home.
Grey Matter Design is a company that is passionate about making truly different and one of a kind products. It also happens to be a company run by my brother Jason Collings. A while back my big brother called me and said “hey dude I have been making these really cool tables made out of concrete, and I am starting my own business trying to sell them, wanna come over watch the game and check them out?” So I did.
After a big Canucks win we headed up to his garage to check out the tables. I was blown away at not just how cool and unique the tables looked but how much stuff was in the garage. There were so many tools I felt like I was on the set for Home Improvement. I instantly was fascinated and started asking lots of questions on how the process works and what inspired him to start to make these. After a good long chat and a few beers I realized that their could be a really cool film here. I said I would love to make a film for him about this process, he got really excited and shortly after we found ourselves back in the garage only this time the CTM team was there and we had cameras in our hands!
