"Unforgettable" - the documentary

Postby Eric Williams » Sun Sep 30, 2012 10:28 am

Thought the denizens of the board might like to know about my documentary "Unforgettable" about my brother Brad Williams, aka "the Human Google", one of the few people studied for "highly superior autobiographical memory" -- more commonly (and loosely) described as "remembering every day of your life". You might have seen him profiled on such programs as "60 Minutes", "Good Morning America", "Jimmy Kimmel Live", "Live with Regis and Kelly", and "NBC Nightly News". The movie follows Brad's adventures through one eventful year as he gained unlikely notoriety from his unusual abilities, and features his encounters with people like Dick Cavett, memory expert Harry Lorayne and some guy named Ken Jennings, who talks "Jeopardy!" and battles Brad in a game of Buzztime trivia.

We've shown the movie to very enthusiastic responses at film festivals and we're now in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign to raise some completion funds, primarily to clear the various TV clips before we can put the film on TV or release it on video. If you're curious about the movie, please take a couple minutes to find out more at If you'd care to kick in a few bucks, it'd be much appreciated. If you think of other people -- or other message boards -- that might be interested in the film, feel free to share the link. Right now, it's all about getting the word around.

(And yes, we know about the CBS cop show, "Unforgettable", but we had the title first and we're keeping it!)

You might also enjoy Brad's daily trivia blog, Triviazoids, in which he finds the tangential links among the events of each day in history, a site which Ken has been kind enough to mention on his blog a few times:

Thus endeth the shameless self-promotion for today.
