"We are asking you to film what’s important, impactful, challenging or inspiring to you.

It can be a single shot, a person, an entire event, or a compelling story - we want to see your America in all its imperfect glory.

When shooting, please try to be as brave, bold and creative as possible. The most compelling footage will be what makes it into the final portrait.

In addition, we would like you or your subject to look into the camera and answer the following questions.

  • What does America mean to you?
  • What does the American dream mean to you?
  • What is the state of the country today?
  • What are you afraid of?

If there is anything else that you have the desire to say or share, please feel free."
