Pattern Integrity Films: #AmericaWakeUp (2020) 2:00 (USA)

I'm not sure how the startup film studio in Portland, Pattern Integrity Films, managed to secure the rights to George Carlin's famous speech, he was fiercely apolitical and very much against the political machine, but with it the made this political film. (His daughter Kelly tweeted this film out, so his estate has given permission to use Carlin's speech.)

Putting George's words to the current footage of riots, footage of hospital Covidwards overflowing, footage of people in line for food banks, footage of millionaire politicians doing whatever - it really makes George's speech stand out even more. Monologues like this are why George is still widely regarded as one of the most important and influential stand-up comics of all time. This film was entirely on Pattern Integrity's own dime, with sourced footage from news reels.

I'm not sure this was the smartest thing for Pattern Integrity to do as a launch. We all love George, I see no issue there, but basically this is just editing found footage to a monologue, and it's not very exciting at that. If you're only showing one skill in your launchfilm, make it knock my socks off. This didn't.

Yep, sure didn't knock any socks off. Never got published in Fast Company. Esquire didn't pick it up, either. It didn't have over 5 million views in the first 24 hours. Also, not sure what you're talking about with this launch film business, we've been around for YEARS.
