On November 20, 2009, Sarah Palin visited Columbus, OH as part of her book signing tour for "Going Rogue." When her supporters were asked broad questions about why they thought she should be president, the responses were vague: She's "real." She'll "stick up for America."
Re: accusations of cherry picking, which are commonly thrown at interview-based videos: it simply isn't what we did. We interviewed only a few more people than ended up in the video, not hundreds, and what was cut was done for time purposes. The people were selected at random--several volunteered to be interviewed--and we were only there for about 90 mins (it gets dark early and fast in Ohio right now). What didn't make it into the video is footage of people talking generically about taxes/spending, drilling, and abortion--we constructed blocks that represent those issues. While of course the piece was edited to be entertaining, we do not believe it misrepresents the attitudes of the people present at the signing.
Our films are free to watch, but costly to produce.
