New documentary: “Inside the Mind of Ayn Rand”

Award-winning producer Duncan Scott has a new project under development, a documentary titled “Inside the Mind of Ayn Rand.” You can see a video about the project on the movie’s Kickstarter page, to help raise money for the project.

Scott is perhaps best known to Objectivists as the producer of the Ayn Rand-approved version of the Italian screen adaptation of We The Living. For more background about Scott and his We The Living project, see the Atlasphere’s 2003 interview with Duncan Scott.

    Wouldn’t it be great if the following happened:

    i) The Atlas Shrugged movie proves so popular that it goes nationwide to every multiplex.

    ii) There is thus enough money to fund parts two and three and the movie can leap overseas, to places that have never heard of Rand and where there has never been enough ‘buzz’ for publishers to hire translators that will provide Rand’s works in many more foreign languages.

    iii) Documentaries about Rand (such as Duncan Scott’s “Inside the Mind of Ayn Rand”) and explaining and illustrating here ideas, making them plausible begin to play in movie theaters that have predominantly featured left-leaning or politically conventional documentaries by Michael Moore and Al Gore. And the producers can make enough money from them to continue doing such projects.

    Subject: Dreaming Big . . .

    Wouldn’t it be great if the following happened:

    i) The Atlas Shrugged movie proves so popular that it goes nationwide to every multiplex in the country.

    ii) There is thus enough money to fund parts two and three — with more time, not rushed, with major ‘production values’.

    iii) And it’s financially worthwhile for the movie to leap overseas, to places where they have never heard of Rand, there is no Oist movement, few copies of her books are sold.

    iv) This produces enough ‘buzz’ for publishers to hire translators that will provide Rand’s books in many more foreign languages. Especially in the places where people would be the most responsive.

    v) Documentaries about Rand (such as Duncan Scott’s “Inside the Mind of Ayn Rand”) plus many more focused on explaining, illustrating, defending her ideas, making them plausible begin to play in movie theaters that have predominantly featured left-leaning or politically conventional documentaries by Michael Moore and Al Gore. And the producers can make enough money from them to continue doing such projects.

    (The last four things on my list probably are only workable if the first is successful.)
