'American Blogger' Documentary Has a Narrow Focus in First Trailer
Most documentaries are meant to shine a light on subjects that general audiences usually know very little about. But it just so happens that a new documentary called American Blogger focuses on an industry we're rather familiar with; or at least that's what we thought until we saw this trailer. Christopher Wiegand has decided to take a cross country trip to speak with a series of bloggers in the United States and claims to "change the way we see an industry." The biggest change in the way we see the industry turns out to be that there only appear to be attractive female bloggers in America. So that's quite a twist. Watch it!
Here's the trailer for Christopher Weigand's American Blogger from Vimeo (via The Playlist):
In a statement about American Blogger, Wiegand says, "The name American Blogger came not because I am representing all of America but because I am traveling America (40 states) in my Airstream and telling the story of the blogger. This film is not supposed to be, nor is it, representing bloggers or America as a whole by any means. These are the women that said yes to my request, they knew my wife and trusted that I would tell this story in a positive way." So a lot of effort went into getting a variety of bloggers who just happened to be friends with the director's wife. Now that's filmmaking, right? The film hits iTunes in June.
