Filmmakers driving 10,000 miles to ask Oprah for $1

Kiefer Sutherland, Stephen Colbert, and Kevin Bacon are just a few of the many celebrities joining thousands of producers to help create <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0448975/"><em>The 1 Second Film</em></a>, an online-based non-profit art project being called the “largest collaboration in filmmaking history.”

On September 20th, the non-profit collaboration began a 10,000 mile quest to ask Oprah Winfrey to join their list of producers, simply by donating $1.

One dollar is the minimum amount to be credited as a producer of the innovative micro-collaborative project, which is using the internet to allow anyone in the world to make a movie together. To date, the production has raised over $222,315.34 of a $1 million goal with the help of over 8,084 producers from 50 countries. But will Oprah join them? That is the question the filmmakers are preparing to drive 10,000 miles to find out.

The Road to Oprah tour will be the culmination of a one-second film several years in the making, as the production attempts to bring as many people as possible together to make film history.
