The short film is a compilation of new footage, archival footage, and new material crafted to bring Airstream’s founder, Wally Byam, back to life. The narration is from the point of view of Old Grandad, a vintage Airstream Clipper travel trailer made in 1937. The "Creed" that is the central theme to the film, is Airstream founder Wally Byam's long standing written statement that exemplifies everything that those drawn to travel, outdoor life and camping will identify with. Wally managed to sum up the dreams and goals of everyone that understands "wanderlust" and the desire to see the world as well as building relationships with other fellow travelers.
The film was so well received apon it's release that it was recognised by the Brand Film Festival in New York City. Production house, Public Works, was honoured to have "Creed" screened alongside films from other brands such as National Geographic, Lyft, Nike, Amazon, Intel, Fox, Adobe, Nike, Facebook, AT&T, Harley, Timberland, Lexus, Charles Schwab, Prada, Delta, Apple, and more. Ian Fohrman of Public Works said, " “It’s a privilege to tell the story of this iconic American brand that has captured the American spirit of innovation. They are a fundamental piece of the American travel story, and their rich history spans the better part of a century.”
You don't have to be an Airstream owner or aficianado to be moved by this well told story. The lighting, camera angles and imagery is simply beautiful. For all of you that live from one travel adventure to the next, Wally's "Creed" will resonate in your heart no matter what brand of RV you prefer.
