The Ken Burns Effect is a Ken Burns-style documentary homage to Ken Burns, featuring Ken Burns.
The films of Ken Burns brought us together, instilled in us a love for the United States and its history, and taught us the value of public broadcasting and of filmmaking. That is the Ken Burns effect. We decided that the only way to truly and properly pay homage to our hero was to hit the road, journey to meet him and document our odyssey in the way he taught us.
That’s why we’re making a documentary about Ken Burns, our love for his films and our road trip to see him in person.
If you love Ken Burns as much as we do, we encourage you to join us and to share your stories! You can also email us at theKBeffect@gmail.com to see how you can help or get involved. We are in the process of post-production for our film right now, and we have plenty to do!
We are eager to tell this story — OUR story — in the only way we know how — with The Ken Burns Effect. Thank you so much for visiting our site, take a look around and make sure to share your stories about Ken Burns and his films!
