1 Giant Leap: What About Me? is a unique music, TV and film project, the culmination of 4 years of directors Duncan Bridgeman and Jamie Catto visiting 50 locations around the world, collecting wisdom and musical jewels. It's an inspiring and alarming look at our collective insanity: how we are ego-driven, needy in relationships, insatiable in desire, addicted to status, wounded by childhood, and unable to stop thinking, but still manage to be inspired and creative. At its core is the music, starting with pre-composed backing tracks and seamlessly layering in international stars like Alanis Morissette, KD Lang, Michael Franti, Michael Stipe, Khrisna Das, and Stewart Copeland with a diverse array of world music artists that included Bedouin musicians, Chinese rappers, Gabonese Pygmies, Tuvan throat singers, Egyptian folk musicians, and Japanese Taiko drummers. Along with Noam Chomsky, Eckhart Tolle, Stephen Fry and other renowned thinkers, writers, and entertainers, everyday folks speak out -- gravediggers, taxi drivers, brain surgeon, street kids. These unscripted conversations reveal how we are connected by not only creativity and beliefs, but primarily through our madness! An unforgettable and completely unconventional musical and cinematic journey that will leave you stunned and inspired.

Duncan Bridgeman has composed and produced music for 30 years. His first break into filmmaking came from Palm Pictures owner Chris Blackwell, making the Grammy nominated cult hit 1 Giant Leap. In 2004, Simon Fuller produced the second 1 Giant Leap, project What About Me?. Bridgeman followed with the award-winning film Hecho en Mexico (2012). He most recently directed Mystical Journey (2013) for The Smithsonian Institution, about the Hindu festival Kumbh Mela, with Dominic West (The Wire, 300, The Affair) as presenter. Bridgeman is currently in production with The Magic Plant, a documentary about the religion Bwiti in Gabon.
