Title: "The Great American Home Movie"
Press Release body:
Scottsdale, AZ - The Great American Home Movie, produced and directed by Robert Hanley, is a feature length documentary film. Assembled from the willing contributions of Home Video Studio customers, who had their 8 and 16mm film reels transferred to digital formats over the years, it explores the American way of life from the perspective of the movies taken in the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s
A vital component of The Great American Home Movie will be interviews of select Americans who lived during this time. Their story is essential to this project. Open casting calls for interviewees interested in being part of this production will be held nationally on Saturday, October 19th, 2013 at Home Video Studio locations across the country.
The Great American Home Movie will highlight the era of America’s “Coming of Age”. The movie will include first hand experiences by the great generation of that time: The Cold War, The Korean Conflict, the birth of Television and Rock ‘n Roll, Camelot, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Civil Rights Movement, the British Invasion, Vietnam, the Summer of Love, Woodstock, the Moon Landing, Watergate, computers and the birth of Apple and Microsoft.
What an era of sweeping change - yet unparalleled stability for average Americans! It was a revolution in jobs, careers, businesses, automobiles, birthing babies and raising families, childhood, toys, family gatherings, cookouts, picnics, holidays, vacations, schools, sporting events, weddings and funerals – life and living. The Great American Home Movie will have a universal impact - like no other documentary ever produced.
The Great American Home Movie is indeed a grassroots enterprise - as a matter of fact we call it America in Red, White and YOU! After distilling thousands of hours and literally millions of feet of home movies we are in the finishing stages of this production - and this is where the fun really starts. A custom music score by three-time Grammy and five-time Emmy-nominated composer Steve Dorff and personal narratives from the people that truly lived the experience. It is also where the expenses begin to mount. That's why we want to cordially invite YOU to attend our Kickoff/Kickstarter Party in conjunction with our annual Open House on Saturday, October 26th, 2013 to consider if you may possibly want to support our sprint to the finish. We will be serving cocktails and Hors d’oeuvres starting at 7:00p.m. and have a screening of a portion of The Great American Home Movie at 8:00 p.m.
