"...about overcoming fear, and that you must take small steps to overcome your fears or you will simply verify your natural fears and confirm them rather than being able to overcome them."

"AMERICAN MOVIE is the story of filmmaker Mark Borchardt, his mission, and his dream. Spanning over two years of intense struggle with his film, his family, financial decline, and spiritual crisis, AMERICAN MOVIE is a portrayal of ambition, obsession, excess, and one man's quest for the American Dream."
"Mark's vision for his dream film is unlike most in independent filmmaking today. His inspiration comes from films as disparate as Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Seventh Seal, as well as his experiences growing up amidst the grey skies, rusty cars, and ranch houses of Milwaukee's Northwest side."
"It takes a village to make a movie, but when that village is Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin and not Hollywood, CA, the results are at times bizarre, comical, and very American. With the help of his mother, his 82-year old uncle, and a local cast of hilarious and lovable characters, filmmaker Mark Borchardt fights his way through internal and external roadblocks to achieve his goal--to make his movie, his way." -http://www.americanmovie.com/
Adris: I was in fifth grade and nobody liked me. I was the dork and I dressed bad and all this. And I remember sitting outside one day by a tree and everyone else was playing and I was sitting alone and suddenly I started screaming for no reason and I don't know why. I never knew why, I just started screaming my lungs out. And the teacher made me write on the blackboard five hundred times "I will not scream. I will not scream."
Bill: We're so used to what we do that it doesn't really seem as strange to us as it does to someone who might be interviewing us. To us it's just sort of what we do. But to other people it's just this sort of terribly inappropriate behavior. And that's the thing they're most interested in, is why do you want to make this awful music? But to us, we just think we sound like, just, another day.
Bill: Ok, let me tell you about a dream that I have. It's a recurring dream that I've had throughout my life. And this will probably give some insight into the band. I have this dream that I'm being chased by a really large angry mob of people and I'm running away laughing.
Adris: That's it. That describes us perfectly. How do you feel about that dream though?
Bill: It's a good dream for me, cause I always wake up feeling really happy. Cause I don't get caught, I escape.
Adris: So you feel like you're getting away with something, when you're playing.
Bill: I feel like I'm just....getting away.
