IF I CAN DREAM is the first of a new generation of post reality entertainment.IF I CAN DREAM will give viewers a documentary-like look at what it takes to achieve success and recognition in Hollywood in 2010. The viewer will watch as an initial group of five young people - a musician, an actor, two actresses and a model - leave their hometowns and live together high up in the Hollywood Hills. Their every move will be streamed live online as they rehearse, write music, socialize and plan their careers. Innovative camera and sensor technology will allow a global audience to interact with the aspiring performers through text, blogs, MySpace, twitter and facebook as the action unfolds in real-time--something that has never been attempted on a global scale before.
The opinions and points of view of the viewing audience will be recorded through blogs and video messages on www.ificandream.com allowing the aspiring performers to test ideas, rehearse and audition in front of their audience. As the experience evolves, the community around IF I CAN DREAM will introduce new hopefuls, as well as visitors and other participants. In this way IF I CAN DREAM will become an interactive cultural experiment, opening up the American Dream and democratizing the process of the making of a star.
IF I CAN DREAM will open doors, as the aspiring performers will be given access to the best acting, vocal, music and modeling coaches in the business, but it will be up to each member to walk through the doors.
The storyline of IF I CAN DREAM will be driven by the real life narrative of the lives of the individual members, so when one of them leaves - to go on tour, to shoot a part in a movie, because they've been dropped or simply because they want out - their place will be taken by a new hopeful who will be chosen by the public via an open audition process. IF I CAN DREAM
is supposed to go live early 2010. Until then, sweet dreams.
