Another amazing success story from our incredible, talented and dyamic clients who enjoy next level success because of our videos and films. Thank you Dave Tourjé for picking us to direct "LA Aboriginal".

https://www.dreamteamdirectors.com/creative-work-app/la-aboriginal-documenatry

"I worked with Dream Team Directors on my documentary "La Aboriginal." To be honest I hadn't previously been able to fully communicate my brand and the complex themes, background, influences and subjects in my work in a way broad audiences could understand and fully appreciate. Well, there is no doubt they told my story in a very compelling and energetic way. In fact, 6 top awards and 25 International Film Festivals later, the film continues to live on and has expanded my creativity and my status in the art world to a very EXCITING degree. If you need something done right and with huge entertainment value, hire Dream Team Directors"

Dream Team Directors saving education

Behind every Dream Team project is the desire to inspire. This is 1 of 9 films we co-directed on Zoom!! Can you believe that? Awesome collab with @karalynnanthony and cinematographer @tristanwhitman This is for a free platform for peer tutoring between kids—either done in person at a single school, or between “partner schools” or “partner organizations” online.

When times get hard I always balance the hard times with fun times. I always celebrate the wins to make them stronger and brush through the hard times 💪, meaning i don't give much attention to it. That way you can keep working hard on your dreams, always revisit your purpose, why did you want to become that ______? then make that purpose alive again and move forward. i work on my dreams atleast once a day.

sending love to you all. oh and of you can be like a unicorn 🦄 choose to make life magical. it will turn out that way. I promise. yours truly, filmmaker @bayoubennett

Sometimes our sister school worlds collide! 💥 Dream Team Directors Daniel Lir and Bayou Bennett (who also happen to be Film Connection Film Institute mentors!) are working with current FC students and grads on the legendary pianist Greg Phillinganes' documentary.

Drop a 💯 in the comments if you're gonna watch this documentary!
Happy new year everybody! We were so lucky that we were quarantined in the same place in March last year, which gave us the opportunity to keep working and doing Ask Carol-stuff.🎶 Thanks so much to all the amazing people we got to meet, in person before March, and online the rest of the year :D You've made a bad year, a little bit better :) Here's a little snippet of what we did last year, most of it in the backyard of our studio... Even though travels and concerts were off the table, we have kept ourselves busy, recording, filming, learning new stuff. We really look forward to seeing you all again, stay strong and stay safe guys!!

Film Connection mentor Bayou Bennett of Dream Team Directors is not only a top-notch director, she's a dedicated film mentor who's passionate about seeing her students succeed.
