I Am Alive Tube

  • Log Line

    A homeless person battles against man’s callus nature in order to be seen in an otherwise invisible world.

  • Concept

    I Am Alive Tube was a Social Filmmaking community who's purpose was to puts a face on America's homeless society, so they may never be forgotten. It ran for 12 months before funding ran out the program was stopped, which was a very sad moment for all of us.


    The Urban Institute estimates that about 3.5 million US residents, including 1.35 million children, have been homeless for a significant period of time. Over 37,000 homeless individuals, including 16,000 children, stay in shelters in New York every night.


    Through social filmmaking, we believe you can bring a face to those that otherwise are faceless. You can show the darkness of their plight and pain; the magnitude of their misery. But you can also shine the light of hope by documenting the kindness of a helpful hand, programs that help those in need, or just a cycle that was broken.


    Live The Dream Films was proud to be a founding sponsor and charter member of this very special social filmmaking community.
