Stories Are Light
is a series of short-form documentaries that entertain, enlighten, and educate.
Produced to show that regardless of our situation, or feelings of isolation, we are all connected and experience life in similar ways.
Stories are power.
They are a timeless human tradition that connect and transform us - creating communities from individuals.
Each video will be 10 - 15 minutes in length and will tell the extraordinary and inspiring stories of ordinary people.
We all pass that person - the single mother; the homeless guy; the sexy woman in the BMW - and we pass judgement without knowing who they are, where they’ve been. Without knowing their story.
Stories Are Light will explore these experiences that connect us all. Not just the facts about an experience, but the raw emotions, feelings, fears, and triumphs that we so rarely share.
These will not be ‘easy’ stories to tell - and often controversial - but it is our belief these are exactly the topics that need to be explored. Stories Are Light will hopefully shine in the darkest corners and light the path for those who feel alone in their experiences.
The goal of this project is to produce 100 short-form documentaries, “sparks of life”, that are self-contained and stand alone. Initially a web series, similar stories will be woven together to create a compelling documentary ‘quilt’ for larger distribution and film festivals.
