After months of filming on location throughout Japan, Los Angeles, and the Bay Area, we are proud to present the first comprehensive window into “The Power Of Two” film. Until now our youtube clips have been met with very warm reception, however we believe this trailer is the key to spreading our message to a global audience. Director/Producer Marc Smolowitz is extremely happy with the trailer’s outcome: “This sets the direction for what the film is going to be. As we are 50% done, it’s an important opportunity to show what I’m doing storytelling wise, and how organ donation impacts both American and Japanese cultures through Ana and Isa’s eyes.” He added, “The trailer is a momentous turning point in my process creatively. I am proud to have this vehicle to present to people who want to support us and get involved.”
“The Power Of Two” trailer relays the large scope of our project while emphasizing two major themes: raising awareness about organ donation and transplantation across all cultures, and celebrating the miracle in every breath- especially for those fighting Cystic Fibrosis. However the Stenzel twins’ story also speaks to those closed to the idea of organ donation. As Ana makes clear in the above video, her driving motivation is to spread a sense of being truly alive and gratefully so.
April is almost over and that means it’s time to count the successes of Donate Life Month. May is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month and with it comes plenty of shoot dates, including the San Francisco portion of Great Strideshosted by Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The same weekend we will head to Santa Cruz for The Relayby Organs ‘R’ Us to promote organ donation. It will be amazing to film both events back to back as each is powerful in its own right and highly relevant to our film. Help spread the word by sharing the film trailer above- we look forward to sharing further developments leading up to “The Power Of Two” release in early 2011.
