The name’s Fraser Grut and I’m a 23-year-old filmmaker and have been since the age of seven.
I have a dream. (Don’t sue me, Dr King!) A BIG dream.
I want to change the world through film. How? By helping the world to dream again.
I run a little project called 10,000 Dreams where every single day for 10,000 days (27.37907 years) I’m filming a different person answering the question ‘What’s your dream?’ I’m not crazy, my mother had me tested.
Currently, as I write this column, I’m on day 494. Nearly there…
I had a thought. Wouldn’t it be rad (excuse the surfer-dude lingo) to capture Siri’s dream. The Siri. You know the one, unless you’re still on an iPhone One.
*Fraser turns on his iPhone SE ($479 at Noel Leeming)*
Fraser: “Siri, what’s your dream?”
Siri: “Fraser, you’re not supposed to ask your assistant such things.”
Hmm. I tried again. This time, I used her full name. Karen Jacobsen.
You’ve never heard of her, but she lives in your back pocket. She’s the Siri, and I was super fortunate to meet her a few months back.
Since I couldn’t get an answer from my iPhone SE, I asked her the same question.
Fraser: “Karen, what’s your dream?”
KAREN JACOBSEN (the voice of Siri) – day 444
“My dream is to speak and sing, on the biggest stages and screens, to the most influential audience, all over the world, for the rest of my life.”
Oh, btw… she’s an absolutely lovely in person. She’s no phoney… *wink*
