Project Synopsis

A cheerful celebration of the very ordinary, Born to be Mild explores the uncommon hobbies practiced by the members of the Dull Men’s Club. This short documentary played at SXSW, and introduced viewers to the mildly profound virtue of being ‘dull, not boring’. A selection to the SXSW film festival!

Born To Be Mild can be broken down into smaller bits. Each character's story can be cut independently, then assembled by one. Partner with a friend and practice editing with a "lead" editor. The storylines are very family friendly, and also super fun!
