Simon Fraser film student learns plenty from his quest
Ian MacDougall’s cross-border odyssey to track down one of Hollywood’s premier heavyweights may have turned him into a short-term online sensation, but continues to prove that brushes with true stardom are far more fleeting.
Months after the 22-year-old film student teamed up with a friend to convince Morgan Freeman to narrate a class project, he’s still chasing the goal that sent him on his madcap adventure in the first place.
MacDougall plans to devote part of the upcoming year to sifting through the hours of footage he gathered last April on his quest to track Freeman down. He and collaborator MacKenzie Warner are ultimately hoping the 20-minute short film they cobbled together in less than a day can be turned into a full-length documentary, ideally featuring a voiceover from the film industry’s consummate narrator.
