THE 30-SECOND CANDIDATE
election update


Minnesota candidate
THE 30-SECOND CANDIDATE also takes viewers inside congressional races in Minnesota and southern Georgia to see how a media campaign unfolds, from strategy sessions to editing commercials. The documentary provides an unusual "fly-on-the-wall" perspective on a process few people get to see.

Georgia candidate

The future of political advertising is considered by profiling the work of a new organization called the Alliance for Better Campaigns. The group was organized by Paul Taylor, a former Washington Post political reporter who became disenchanted with both the system and how it was covered. The Alliance is trying to reform how campaigns are conducted and covered in 10 different states this fall.
