@home is a feature-length documentary film and transmedia project with one goal: to help move the needle on homelessness in America.
It began as a film following the work of e-activist Mark Horvath. Mark has experienced the highs and lows of the American dream, from a successful career in television to barely surviving, homeless and addicted, on Hollywood Boulevard. But he found his voice again when he hit the streets, armed with a digital camera and a smartphone, to talk to homeless people about their own experiences. Today, he's the online voice of his cause, and he's bringing their stories to millions on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. The @homedocumentary follow him on a road trip across the country, from Los Angeles to Arkansas to Pittsburgh, as he makes homelessness in America visible.
Mark’s story, and the stories of the many faces of homelessness we meet in @home, have the power to engage communities in talking about homelessness — its causes and solutions — and create a renewed sense of empowerment to tackle this crisis. That’s why this campaign is using multiple mediums, like web video and gaming, to get the word out and build a movement of advocates.
Starting in 2014, the @home campaign will move city by city across the country to “shout real loud” about homelessness online, and on the ground. Stay tuned to find out if we’re coming to a city near you.
