Iris Polit Named Co-Producer on Upcoming Dreamer Documentary

Founder of Your Success Ace, Iris Polit signed on as Co-Producer for the filming of Dreamer.

Austin, TX – May 15, 2020 – Iris Polit signed on as Co-Producer in a new documentary feature film from DNA Films®. The film will focus on encouraging young people as well as current and future entrepreneurs to take the leap and follow their dreams to create change.

Throughout the film you learn about influential entrepreneurs such as Giovanni Marsico (the founder of Archangel), Dean Kamen (engineer, inventor and business man), Lisa Nichols (motivational speaker) and Peter Diamandis (the founder of the X-Prize Foundation). The documentary will explore their stories, dreams, and the paths they took to make an impact. 15-time Emmy® Award winning Director Nick Nanton is directing this documentary to tell these incredible stories.

It is the hope of Iris Polit, and the other producers involved, that this film will help inspire young people to become the entrepreneurs of the future by dreaming big and persevering through any obstacle to achieve their goals.

Iris Polit joined Nick Nanton and his Emmy® Award Winning DNA Films crew for principle filming of the interview with Dean Kamen, Founder of FIRST and DEKA Research and Development, at his New Hampshire estate in late August 2019. She was also on set for Nanton’s interviews with Lisa Nichols, Founder and CEO at Motivating the Masses, in mid-October 2019 and Anousheh Ansari, CEO at X-Prize, in January 2020.

According to Iris, “getting to hear these two amazing women’s stories in person was a dream come true. Their extraordinary journeys — which they shared so openly and authentically — inspired and moved me.” She added, “I’m overjoyed that such a diverse collection of leaders contributed their life lessons to this project. They will no doubt resonate with and motivate anyone who sees this film.”

This is Iris Polit’s second documentary collaboration with Nick Nanton and DNA films. She has previously co-produced the three-time Telly and four-time Emmy Award-winning documentary, A New Leash On Life: The K9s For Warriors Story.

Dreamer is currently still in production and is scheduled for tentative release in the late fall of 2020.
