The Rehearsal

Franklin Pham’s new short film, a 5-minute version of The American Dream, was selected by the Campus MovieFest (CMF) as one of the top 16 entries out of 128 films made by teams at San Jose State University (SJSU).

The Rehearsal from $kull C@ndy on Vimeo.

It was an awesome feeling sitting in the audience and watching our work show up on the screen. My own face amongst the dozens of others who made the picture possible. Garbage bag after garbage bag. Dozens of people. Voices. Faces. Stories. Lives.

For my own part, I was Bag 098: Peter Corless.

All of us working for a common goal and vision for a more positive future for the planet.

We are presently waiting to hear whether the movie will be selected to be put onto the AT&T mobile phone network. If it is selected, it will be downloadable to 60 million subscribers!

Write in the comments how this movie makes you feel. How it changes how you have thought about the past seven years. How it shapes your vision for the next seven years before us.

In the meanwhile, we all have more work to do.

Rock on, Franklin! Rock on!


p.s. If you want to get involved with the Global Understanding movement, or The American Dream movie project, and are willing to wear a garbage bag for an artistic statement and social purpose, contact me at 650-906-3134 or email
