Your Fellow Americans

THE SKINNY: An on-going web documentary series taking a look at race, immigration, and “The American Dream. Since the issues of race and immigration are capable of being exceedingly divisive topics, the plan is to focus the first round of interviews on families rather than individuals. We’re going for multi-generation families in as many ethnicities/races as we can find here in Kansas City.

STATUS: Pre-Production & Planning

TIME-FRAME: First videos will go live on YouTube in late January 2014

We Are Superman: The Transformation of 31st and Troost

THE SKINNY: When our editor, Kevin Bryce, wanted to make a documentary about all of the changes that he saw happening on the corner of 31st and Troost, we supported him in every way we could. What started as a short 15-minute side project ballooned into a feature length documentary that has been seen by thousands in the Kansas City area and is working to communicate the power and feasibility of community revitalization.

Broke, Busted, & Disgusted

THE SKINNY: Broke, Busted, & Disgusted is a documentary film idea from financial educator Adam Carroll, who took it to VisualHouse founder Calvin Johannsen, who brought on Christopher Cook of Brainroot.

Student debt is crippling a generation, yet thousands of graduates leave college debt-free. Tuition is sky-rocketing while college is, in some cases, devolving into four years of summer camp. Grade inflation is causing thousands of “excellent” graduate to compete for jobs that employeers still can’t find truly qualified applicants for… Broke, Busted, and Disgusted will examine the higher education system in the United States. The film will ask three questions: Is there something wrong with the system? Is there a way to work the system? Is there a way to fix the system?

STATUS: Exploratory

TIME-FRAME: Presently, the team is considering a Kickstarter Campaign for February 2014

Halls of Heroes

THE SKINNY: Halls of Heroes is a documentary film project by the Iowa Filmmakers team, with Brainroot acting as second-unit and editor.

Hall of Heroes will explore the brief lives of two young student athletes – Jack Trice and Nile Kinnick – whose heroic actions evoked such strong feelings among the Iowa populace that their respective universities renamed their football stadiums in our subjects’ honor. Secondarily the documentary will examine some very basic and universal human themes: the deification of the American athlete, the nature of sacrifice, our human thirst for heroism, and how does one distinguish between heroes and idols?

STATUS: Fund Raising

TIME-FRAME: Unknown. Paul David Benedict and the Iowa Filmmakers have pitched it to some potential corporate sponsors, and we’re just waiting through a two- to three-month process until we hear either a “Yes!” or “No.” That answer will obviously determine how fund-seeking proceeds forward.
