Re:Dream Project

“To engage, inspire and challenge.” Nathaniel Bozarth, a 2009 initiate of Alpha Upsilon at Kansas State, is launching Re:Dream. We caught up with him prior to the first video, which will air February 29. Check out our Q&A below.


For more information on Re:Dream, be sure to visit their website!
ReDreamProject.org


DSP: What’s the purpose behind the Re:Dream Project?

NB: It’s a 40-part documentary series about the American Dream. We introduce a variety of folks and look at their “version” of the American Dream, and the opportunity obstacles that might prevent those dreams from becoming a reality. Our aim is to create a neutral conversation around what opportunity looks like today, to help jump-start that conversation.

DSP: Cool. How did Re:Dream come about?

NB: I met a guy named Christopher Cook through mutual friends. He did a documentary feature called We are Superman and when I saw it, I thought “damn, this is really good.” So I offered to help him with future projects, because I was passionate about what he was doing. Christopher had started a video production company, Brainroot, and I came on board shortly before KCPT (the PBS station in Kansas City) contracted us to work on Re:Dream. KCPT was fortunate enough to receive a grant from ThinkShift, an initiative of the DeBruce Foundation.

DSP: What motivated you to join Brainroot and help develop Re:Dream?

NB: The goal for Brainroot is to create videos that engage, inspire and challenge. What really gets me going about building story-based documentaries, we bring together folks from diverse backgrounds, diverse political views, etc. I feel that it’s so important, because there just aren’t that many spaces where people can have those conversations anymore. We’re talking about the American Dream, about success, about things that–traditionally–most everyone can agree on. When casting the documentary, we took a sheet of paper and thought of as many schisms as possible, finding those things that separates us. Then we sought out 40 people to fall into those different categories or subsections. We also wanted to draw focus to the simple, common threads that connect us all, showing the core similarities from one American Dream to the next.

DSP: Did your membership in Delta Sig affect the project in any way?

NB: My experience as a Delta Sig helped galvanize me for this project. Delta Sig was a place where we had all different types of people. I remember so many times where people would say, ‘I can’t put my thumb on who Delta Sig is. They have no stereotype.’ That experience boosted interest in a project like this. The sense of inclusion I’ve developed, because of the fraternity, is now a point of pride.

DSP: What networks can people watch your videos on?

NB: This is primarily an online series, so the best place to see the videos is our website, redreamproject.org. We’re contracted by KCPT, so they lead the series. There will be 15 total public media networks, all the way from LA to Rochester, New York, who will promote the series on their digital platforms.

DSP: What’s the time-frame for the project?

NB: Our first video will air February 29, with a new release every week day, for 8 weeks. So with 40 episodes, the series will wrap up on April 22.

DSP: Thanks for your time, and good luck, Nathaniel! We can’t wait to watch.

NB: No problem! We’re also looking to partner with universities and host physical conversations as well. If readers have a school they’d like to recommend or want to help host an event, definitely get in touch.
