Mission Statement

Dream Out Loud Productions (DOL) is a non-profit independent film company that specializes in true stories about people and events, focusing on social and human rights issues. DOL is dedicated to the creation of media projects that touch hearts, transform attitudes and foster positive change.

In 2008 the by-laws of DOL were amended to include the Orphan Bracelet activities. Donations and income from bracelet sales, for orphan support, is kept in a separate bank account and donated to DO Ubuntu Orphan Campaign, a non-profit, in South Africa.

The prime objective of DOL is to produce documentary films. Our goal is to deliver compelling films that inspire audiences to get involved in the issues that affect us all. We're committed to making a difference in the world we live in.
