Today I got a call from MTV Network, who are beginning filming for a new documentary called “True Life: I’m Having a Destination Wedding.” So, I thought I’d put the little one sheet they sent me below, on the MOD BLOG, and see if anyone is interested in participating? Um, yes, it will take a special couple who are open to having MTV film their lives prior to the wedding, & the dirty details of the day (not ALL of them I hope : ) but if you’re into it, let me know, and we’ll get a rollin’ with our submission, ok? Right – peace! – A
MTV’S NEWS & DOCUMENTARIES DEPARTMENT PRESENTS
TRUE LIFE: I’m Having a Destination Wedding
True Life employs first-person narrative storytelling to provide a window into the lives of young Americans. To date, the series has explored topics as complex as living with a disorder such as autism or obsessive-compulsive disorder; living in extreme poverty; and being deployed to and returning from military service in Iraq.
From the MTV Website: “Since its initial episode in 1998, MTV’s award-winning True Life documentary series has told remarkable real-life stories of young people and the unusual subcultures they inhabit. Whether documenting the lives of gay marriage activists, individuals dealing with obesity, or teens in high school–the True Life series tells its stories solely from the varied voices and points-of-view of its characters–putting the series in the unique position of reflecting the state of youth culture at any given moment. “
A follow up to our enormously successful True Life: I’m Getting Married, True Life: I’m Having a Destination Wedding will focus on the growing trend of young people choosing to get married thousands of miles from home. Formerly for celebrities and the ultra-rich, these weddings have become more accessible to couples looking to add a “twist” to their big day. Production will begin in the first week of July, with a tentative air date in September 2008. The crew will be following these couples at their job and home (personal life), through the planning process and all the way down the aisle.
