Make Your Story A Part of Our Virtual Movie Trailer

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Cosmos, meteors, death…the world is a dramatic place. Some might say it’s stranger than fiction. And we know that in the case of our listeners real life is certainly more interesting.

And so, The Takeaway and our Movie Date team are asking you to help us create the ultimate audio movie trailer, using your real life stories. All we need is for you to give us a sentence or two — a dramatic sentence, or a strange sentence, or a comedic sentence — about your life.

You can submit your sentences to us on twitter using hashtag #inaworld. Or you can call us at 877-8-MYTAKE.

We'll combine all the sentences into one, sound-rich audio trailer that will be coming to the radio airwaves very soon.

In the event that you need some inspiration, the Takeaway staff have created a trailer of their own, using all their own lives.

Produced by:

Kristen Meinzer

You can never be more in THE NOW than in the middle of a great Tango dance, where every sense is on alert, your body is tightly yet smoothly gliding through suddenly changing tempos,totally in sync with your partner.It reminds me of scuba diving, surrounded by a dark liquid, not knowing what you will see next, body feeling like you are flying through syrup..put these two sports on your Bucket list.(Yes, I see Tango as a sport.It is a wonderful lifelong discipline.)

I have survived premature birth, a mud avalanche that destroyed my town and killed my mother and brother, their bodies were never found; a horrific car accident, all without a scratch or maybe one or two. I am hoping that I am still here for a very good reason. Maybe to do something that no one else can do.
