This is the "Portuguese" version of the AmeriCone Dream spot that I wrote/directed and edited. It is called "The Taste Of Liberty Going Supreme."
Shortly after shooting this project in May 2007, I had to fly back to Rome for family matters. Finally, I just completed the editing and audio mixing this past weekend... I can't believe one year went by so fast!
So, why an AmeriCone Dream ice cream spot in multiple languages? So many delicious reasons! I'll mention just a few benefits:
1. I wish the entire world would taste Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone Dream unique Ben & Jerry's flavor! This marvelous, "decadent melting pot of vanilla ice cream with fudge-covered waffle cone pieces and a caramel swirl (Ben&Jerry's website)" will quickly convert you to Colbertarianism or dedication to Truthiness, leaving "the sweet taste of liberty in your mouth. (Ben&Jerry's website)"
2. From Ben & Jerry's website: "Stephen Colbert is donating his proceeds from the sale of AMERICONE DREAM to charity through The Stephen Colbert AmeriCone Dream Fund. The Fund will support charities of concern to Stephen such as food and medical assistance for disadvantaged children, helping veterans and their familes, and environmental causes. Said Colbert, "I will save the world."
This project could not have materialized without the support of my wonderful team of friends and acquaintances (yes, I am known for stopping strangers and hire them on the spot to act or work on my movie projects..LOL)
Caffe' del Doge staff in Palo Alto, California has been truly a pleasure to work with. And their delicious coffee/pastries/sandwiches kept us going all day long!
Plus, everyone had plenty of Ben & Jerry's AmeriCone Dream ice cream as you will be able to see in a moment!
Caffe' del Doge staff in Palo Alto, California has been priceless!"
