Where to, Mr. President?
Wouldn't you like to see your future President pushing his own campaign car out of the dirt? See him sing along with his favorite music? Discover what kind of person really lies under his political skin? "Where to, Mr. President?" shows you exactly that. Sharing a whole day in the intimacy of a classy car, politicians open up in a new way. Unburdened of the stress of a face-to-face political discussion, two individuals travel side-by-side in the front seat. Not as opponents, but as equals. And six Mini HD-cameras travel with them. Everybody knows politicians shake hands, hold babies and talk to big audiences. But what happens after that? Normally public access ends abruptly in front of the shaded windows of the politician's car. This unique format focuses on the times when the politicians are out of the public eye. Do our representatives relax, look for feedback or complain?
As they are travelling through the country reflecting on what they see: be it farmland, schools or a high street job center. Their vision as politicians but even more as human beings is put on this big stage. Since the interviewer is the driver, the politicians surrender twice - to the interviewer and to the driver. But as co-drivers they also have to take some responsibility, like navigating the route. On top they will face several challenges which will test their NLP-trained shell and bring out their true character. A special surprise is hidden in the glove compartment, it gives a twist to the discussion and offers another intriguing camera perspective. Surprisingly often unexpected events - even a car breakdown - disturb the smooth way of the day. Our Format "Where to, Mr. President?" delivers your audience the human being behind the political mask. It will definitely change the way you see your politicians and make you think, laugh and cry at the same time.
