InSpired is a one-hour documentary intended for national distribution to Public Television, and national and international distribution through streaming services.
The documentary uses the floods of 1972 and 1976 as a starting point to convey to viewers the deliberate actions taken by Frederick’s leaders to get to where we are now. As part of that story, the rich history of Frederick will be related to viewers so that Frederick can be placed in context for viewers around the country. In short, we will trace the history of Frederick from pre-European days through 2023’s In the Streets, so that viewers across America and around the world have a complete context for understanding how their city or town can make some of the positive changes that Frederick has. The history of Frederick will be placed in a larger, American context, so that viewers can understand how national and world events impacted Frederick, and vice-versa. A complete history of the area will be told.
The documentary is being produced in 4K, which is the highest technological format broadcast nowadays. This will ensure the desirability of the documentary both domestically and internationally. It also means that the documentary will have as long of a shelf life as possible, meaning additional distribution possibilities for the next decade.
