I love voting day. I love the sight of my fellow citizens lining up to make their voices heard.
My name is Kim Moffat. I’m an independent filmmaker in Los Angeles. Normally I make shorts, a few of which you can see on my personal website. I’ve always been really interested in politics, but never been too anxious to combine politics and filmmaking.
Most of my friends don’t vote, and chances are that’s the case with you too. The fact is, America has the lowest turnout of voters in the country. It’s kind of embarrassing.
Here’s what I want to do: I want to take just a fraction of my passion and excitement about politics, and pass it on to my friends who don’t vote. I want to take just a fraction of your passion and excitement, and pass it on to your friends who don’t vote. I want us, together, to make real change. Right now.
This is a place where political affiliations don’t matter – as long as you have some. Be democrat, be republican, be green party… just be something.
Between now and the 2016 Presidential election, we'll be speaking with college students, political activists, elected officials, and hopeful candidates. We want to travel to as many places as possible,and fully immerse ourselves into the political culture of those places, so we can better grasp why people are voting – all to better understand and educate those who aren’t voting.
Like the header says though: it’s not a movie – it’s a movement. I can’t do this alone, I want you to be involved. I want to hear your stories about politics and voting. I want to see pictures of your “I voted” stickers. I want to hear about finally getting your friends to register to vote.
Stick around. Together, we’re gonna do something big here.
