Obama Campaign Movie Trailer Premiere
This morning, the Obama Campaign released a trailer to the seventeen-minute film, "The Road We've Traveled," that documents the first four years of the Obama presidency. The film, narrated by Tom Hanks, and directed by Academy Award Winner David Guggenheim, has such a rich cinematic quality to it, that I thought it was a victorious version of the HBO movie "Game Change" which depicts Sarah Palin's VP journey. Its no question that a quality production like this has a hefty budget attached to it; a point that may go far with Republicans and could pose an impression that the Obama campaign is overspending on unnecessary tactics. The question is, how far and how long will that point last during the 2012 Campaign? I think that the Obama campaign has always been cutting-edge, and in touch with pop-culture; our generation responds well to aesthetics, so while anti-Obama camps could make noise about it, the noise won't last too long. The full mini-film premieres on March 15 - be sure to check it out!
