“Collective Dreams Project ” is a new inspiration generating enterprise aimed at unfolding authentic, unique and heroic human endeavors in the form of creative process, which in itself, will be a force of liberation of the human spirit from the bondage of the mundane.
As individuals , we are regularly haunted by instances of limitation on professional, social, economic and creative levels, unsurpassable boundaries, inhibitions, obstructions and suppression which we experience personally and globally.
Those limitations to a very large extent, we either impose on ourselves or allow room for them to enter from the world around us. And yet, there will always exist exceptional cases of individuals and organizations who manage to accomplish the unthinkable and to break the boundaries of convention.
On a more personal level, each individual has made a certain life decisions in an extremely sincere, brave and creative way which was true to their heart and against multiple odds. Collective unconscious call this phenomenon “Following one’s dream.”
“Collective Dreams Project ” is a poetic essay project aimed at documenting those instances using all creative means available to us, written word , photography, video and mixed media, and thus making them persist. At the times when the “WELL TRED PATH” seems to fail us financially, environmentally and socially, it is important to focus on private persons and organizations who inspire change through their authentic acts.
Documentaries and short cinematic essays about them will be a force to motivate others to be true to themselves and the creative process behind those documentaries will be, in itself, a tool in fighting banality and fear.
2010 to set the wind right for the take-off of “Collective Dreams Project,” one of our first account will be of our own sailing journey across the Atlantic.
Two men who have never cross the ocean before in a small boat, searching to face the elements. We will experience and document the primordial wonder and fear, the physical force and glory of our natural environment, and the potential of our spirit to it. Our trans-Atlantic film documentary will have the power of our experience.
