Fraser Grut’s 10,000 dreams

The name’s Grut. Fraser Grut. Cue rip-off 007 theme.




I’m a twenty-three year old filmmaker and have been since the age of seven. Ask my teddies, they were my first contractors.


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 403. Nearly there…


TOM GRUT – day 402

On 13 January 2018, my older brother, Tom, tied the knot. Take it away, Tom.


“So, I’m getting married today, which is very exciting. My dream for my marriage is to make sure I keep enjoying it and to not take it for granted, I think it’s pretty easy to do that. To stay in the present and to appreciate what we have, and to have lots of sexy babies with Rebecca.” Cue studio audience. Awww.


Let’s travel back 386 days.


*entering hyperspace*


REBECCA SMITH (GRUT – spoiler alert) – day 16

Meet Rebecca. Tom’s girlfriend. He hasn’t proposed yet. Just between you and me he might be doing it soon. Shhh.


“My dream is to marry Tom and have lots of sexy babies.”


So dreams do come true. Well, half a dream…


These are only two of many to come. Many have a dream and many haven’t yet found their dream. Many will achieve their dream. Many will forget their dream. I think you see the pattern. If I can say one last thing, everyone deserves the right to dream.


So dream.
