Atheist Interviews Take 2



Saturday was awesome but we kinda give everyone short notice so we're going to be filming again. And perhaps a third time...


Back story:

We have a member who is currently in need of people willing to tell their secular story on film. Chase Nelson is a student at the Colorado Film School and is making a film about being an atheist in the United States. He would like to interview atheists about their experiences on film. Here is a list of questions Chase would like to ask:

Why are you an atheist?
When did you “become an atheist?” (If previously religious: What/who influenced you? What was the transition like? How is life as an atheist different from life before?)
Where do you get your morals, if not from God?
What purpose does life have without God?
Why do atheists have meetings?
Why (in your opinion) are more US citizens dropping their religions?
What could the rise of atheism mean for our nationʼs future?

    Only half of the interview team showed up. No camera, no interview. I left after an hour when there was scant word from the missing camera person. Time spent? About 4 1/2 hours including travel,time both ways.

    Hi, first time posting. I keep trying to find some time to come to this. I have so much I would love to share and learn. I got caught with mothers day festivities last week and tonight I am stuck at work doing signal engineery things that have to be tested for the new light rail being constructed to DIA currently. I hope there will be another one to attend.

    Chase - I'd be interested but I can't make it tonight (5/17). Can you let me/us know if you're going to be doing a 3rd sitting or, in my case, if you're going to be getting up to Boulder sometime.

    Just out of curiosity, are you doing the tapings in one particular stage/setting or more 'man on the street'-ish with some interviews at coffee shops, some walking down the road... ?

    Got any sneak previews you can show us yet? :)

    - Dex

    I may be alittle late but will try to make it, i think it is good to help otheres make the jump, even if mommy crys about it. rational reasoning verses brain washing reasoning should win every time.

    My guest is my fiance. She is not coming to be interviewed, just to support me.
