This is a rough edit that I compiled from our raw footage for personal use and enjoyment. IT IS NOT PERFECT, there are a handful of known editing and continuity errors that do not affect the interview.
Please watch our trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3FGEr...
"Give a Damn?" is a feature length documentary about two idealist activists who convince their friend, who is uncertain about his responsibility to care about the poor, to immerse himself in poverty traveling through the US, Europe, and Africa living on $1.25 a day!
We filmed the main portion of our movie from July 5th 2009- roughly thanksgiving of that year. While in Nairobi Kenya, filming aerial footage of the Kibera slum, our plane crashed. The pilot and co-pilot were killed in the crash, Dan and I, obviously, survived.
I (Rob) am an Atheist, Dan is a Christian
We became friends at a church in Chesterfield, MO, where we eventually both became leaders of the high school ministry. After struggling with doubt, I left the church and eventually gave up all belief and became an atheist. Dan continued as a youth leader, and we still remained close friends.

"Give a Damn?" is nearing completion. We are very close to picture lock and it will be handed over to the composers very soon. We hope to debut it in a film festival in the next 6-9 months. Thank you for taking the time to watch this video.
