Unity Temple: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Modern Masterpiece Film- Narrated by Brad Pitt

This project was a little bit like that in that you are telling the story of a “marvel” of engineering, or art or history but I was happy to take on an independent project wherein I would wear all the creative hats as well as manage the “nuts and bolts” of producing. I realized making this documentary had inherent challenges including the complexities of a historic restoration, the two year period of construction and the task of weaving in the story of America’s best known architect. I needed to balance my methodical producing mind set with my artistic side. The story began to take shape as I spent time on the site and observed and interviewed the talented and devoted restoration team. I really wanted to find a way to infuse a sense of Wright himself into the story so I was especially thrilled when Brad Pitt agreed to narrate specific quotes reflecting Wright’s creative approach. I think his readings give the film an authenticity that wouldn’t otherwise exist
