Seattle Company Makes Finalist in MoveOn Obama Contest

posted by on April 29 at 14:57 PM

Local production company More Dust Than Digital created this 30-second Obama ad for

It’s competing alongside 14 other entries for a possible MoveOn ad buy—among the judges are talented documentary filmmakers Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg (The Trials of Darryl Hunt) and Rory Kennedy (The Ghosts of Abu Ghraib) and producers James Schamus (Brokeback Mountain) and Ted Hope (Towelhead).

Some of the other entries are a bit less, uh, artsy-fartsy Seattle, so I don’t really think it will win. But there’s always People’s Choice!

Seattle Rules!

Remember, we don't just create Reality, we distribute it WHOLESALE!

And no amount of McCain provided vids put on YouTube by the Clinton apparatchiks will change that.

Funny- I misread part of the title as "Move On Obama". As in give it up. Guess the mind sees what it wants to see.

Snarky response in 3,2..

Um. Why is Obama blue? And is that particular shade of blue racist?

Posted by Reverse Polarity | April 29, 2008 4:52 PM

Yeah, it looks like Obama needs to loosen his shirt collar.

GAG! Obama? Really? Come on!

Hey... I recognize that old man. That's legendary screenwriter Stewart Stern (Rebel Without a Cause, Sybil, The Ugly American).
Awesome cameo.

@18: I don't think he's that jowly. But I think I recognize him from somewhere else. Theater?

Wasn't shot here, was it?

I swear that's the JH in Boston in the skyline behind the girl with the drafting table.
