What is 50 Stories?

Over a two year period, the 50 Stories production crew will be traveling to every State in the US, filming talented writers – visually embracing their work & their world. A short two minute or so vignette from each author will be gathered and each contributor’s words will tag onto the next writer’s piece. In this way the same story will evolve from one writer to the next, seamlessly moving from one page to another and from one State to another.

50 Stories will be a visually-rich, beautifully shot, feature-length film that embraces the enormous geographical diversity of the United States and combines 50 distinct chapters into one amazing story.
