“Another Night, Another Dream“
Easily our favorite phrase, and the title of a documentary film that will soon reveal
The Astonishing True Story Of The Decentralized Dance Party.
WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
ANAD chronicles the rise of the DDP and the development of our Party Philosophy.
Along the way, you’ll get to know Tom and Gary and The Elite Banana Task Force, enjoy the company and wisdom of the many incredible people we meet along the road, and be struck with awe as the hilarious and unlikely evolution of the DDP is fully revealed…
It will chart several years of trials, tribulations, and triumphs and showcase a side of America, Canada and The Human Condition hitherto unseen (all of which is lovingly explicated on the Global Party Pandemic page- Check It Out Right Now).
Much of the footage was also filmed during the height of the Occupy protests across the USA, and our unique approaches to reclaiming public space inevitably collide in fascinating and unexpected ways…
The title of the film, “Another Night, Another Dream”, is a nod to 90’s Dance Icons Real McCoy, and the phrase we’d grinningly utter every single night on our Party Safari tours as we rolled into unknown territory and set loose a renegade explosion of unadulterated human liberation, with no permits or permissions, with a full police escort, night after night, in banana suits :)
WHAT STAGE IS IT AT RIGHT NOW?
We’ve been documenting this thing heavily from day one and have now amassed over 600 hours of footage, much of which is really incredible:
The next step is to condense it down into a feature-length documentary film that will share the DDP story and ignite the Party Revolution in every viewer’s soul.
AND IT’S SOME SORT OF “HYBRID”?
The film will incorporate a revolutionary new “hybrid” presentation style. The main program will be of standard length, but the entire film will span days, via hundreds of embedded “annotation” links.
These annotations will link to full, independent video clips, photo albums and articles, allowing people to delve further into the storyline, whenever they are inspired to do so. ANAD will be something that people can explore and enjoy for days on end.
The film will be distributed exclusively online and we are going to waive all intellectual property rights because we believe that the notion of intellectual property is severely hindering human innovation and societal evolution. More on that soon.
ARE YOU QUALIFIED TO CREATE IT?
Gary has been making movies for the past 15 years and recently conceived and birthed a 10.5-hour-long documentary film called Earth Tour. It turned out pretty well, and most viewers say that they “wish it was longer” (available by donation here).
WHO ELSE WILL BE INVOLVED?
A diverse roster of exceptionally talented individuals will contribute to the creation of ANAD, including: Blair Martin, Ian Mackenzie, Mark Boucher, and Tom Kuzma.
As is our wont, specific roles are unlikely to ever be defined, but our collective efforts will surely give rise to a masterwork of unparalleled richness and grandeur.
WHAT’S THE NEXT STEP?
Your loving support via Kickstarter.com will help to fund the creation of this beauty :)
(THE KICKSTARTER WILL BE RELEASED TOMORROW (March 6th)!
ANAD will be released as part of a massive publicity campaign that will launch The Global Party Pandemic AKA The Grand Unification Tour.
