December 2014 - Adam Guillette The Conservative Forum of Silicon Valley

Adam Guillette
Adam Guillette. December 2014
With so many Hollywood movies type-casting American business, individualism, and entrepreneurship as amoral endeavors of the greedy and self-serving, with scriptwriters making government intervention and control the answer instead of the problem, accomplished Director of Development and Outreach for the Moving Picture Institute (MPI), Adam Guillette introduced to the Forum audience the work of MPI whose mission it is to promote film-makers and films that promote liberty. To be effective, Adam said, stories must lead with emotion.
One familiar example of a movie with a pro-freedom message is Ghost Busters, Guillette noted. The writers of this film cast the character of the government EPA regulator as an obnoxiously stubborn, uneducated antagonist. Ghost Busters is well-known for its outrageous humor, making the overbearing government employee an obstructionist, a villain. In the story, the business is called Ghostbusters and the owners and employees are cast as heroes.
Presented to the Forum by Vice President for Programs Joel Fine, Adam Guillette grew up in a family that provided him with direction. He was raised to believe in freedom and liberty. When other children's parents were telling their children stories of Hansel and Gretel, Adam's father told him stories of the great achievements of Reagan and Churchill. At age nineteen (19), Adam ran for Mayor of Gainesville, Florida, and lost. He went on to found a freedom-oriented newspaper which became the largest student-owned newspaper in America. Later, Adam successfully campaigned to require university presidents to raise money through private contributions to place an American flag in every classroom. Today he lives in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, with his wife Nikki and their Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Liberty.
A veteran in the ongoing fight for liberty, Adam Guillette became a distinguished faculty member at the Leadership Institute in Florida in 2004, and for several years traveled the country encouraging screen writers to create films that promote liberty. In 2007, Adam was chosen to launch the Florida Chapter of Americans for Prosperity. Within a year, that chapter gained over 150 media hits statewide and defeated over $370 million in tax increases. In 2011, Adam Guillette joined the Moving Picture Institute (MPI) to become their Director of Development and Media, working to guarantee film's unique capacity to give shape to abstract principles that support liberty. Adam Guillette has been featured on FOX News, in the Washington Times, in the New York Times, and in the National Review Magazine.
Guillette captured the large Christmas-celebrating Forum audience's attention with film clips that illustrate the power of story-telling capturing the heart and mind. He repeatedly emphasized that establishing an emotional connection is important when attempting to inform and persuade. An emotional appeal is absolutely essential when trying to influence the young generation -- also the low-information voter. Adam reminded his Forum audience that story tellers have for thousands of years taught generation after generation to understand the culture through the telling of stories, creating fables that entertain, painting pictures in story-form that result in the listener learning how to live -- to either accept living controlled or to learn what it means to live freely.
Citing notable examples of story-tellers, Guillette showed a photo of the accomplished fiction writer, Ayn Rand.
Another age-old example, Guillette added, are the cherished fairytales of Hans Christian Andersen (Denmark 1805-1875).
A more universally known source of stories is the Holy Bible, Guillette said. God conveyed to Man His infinite wisdom through the stories written in the Bible.
Two examples cited by Guillette highlighting the power of humor: (1) TV talk-show host John Stewart -- not known for his conservatism but viewed because of his humor, and (2) President Ronald Reagan - a master at delivering wit and humor in punch-lines that disarmed even his opponents.
Asked in the Q&A session following his presentation what the range of funding is for MPI supported films, Guillette answered anywhere from $6,000 to $3,000,000.
Adam discussed a film not produced by MPI, a film written with an anti-freedom bias, The Promised Land, written and produced by Matt Damon.
Adam Guillette acts as Director of Donor Relations and Outreach. Information can be requested from or
Adam Guillette discussed the film 2081 -- an adaptation of "Harrison Bergeron" set in a dystopian mandated egalitarian future. The film has been shown in thousands of classrooms. The membership website has proven to be very important in teaching the next generation about the ideas, institutions, and benefits of a free society. The site offers students critical thinking skills necessary for America's youth to become independent, fully-engaged citizens. So successful has been the website that seventeen thousand (17,000) classrooms now use it. Success has led to a screenwriting deal for film-makers who created it.
The Forum appreciated hearing about the work of Adam Guillette and the Moving Picture Institute. C-Span filmed the presentation. Forum members and attendees asked questions in the Q & A session following the presentation. One question asked if Common Core was in the pipeline for a documentary and Guillette answered not yet. The Forum thanked Adam Guillette with a standing ovation. He had provided an appreciative audience an enormous amount of entertainment and much valued information.
