American Mormon (2005) Online
In the tradition of The Mouths of Babes, intrepid interviewer Daryn Tufts and filmmaker Jed Knudsen tour the country documenting the hilarious misconceptions people have about Latter-day Saints. From New York to Los Angeles, this sidesplitting collection of man-on-the-street interviews helps answer the question: What in the world do people think of us?

Although it may seem like one trip, it actually took Daryn and Jed three separate trips to various areas of the United States in order to obtain all of the footage and interviews they wanted for this documentary.
In an attempt to keep the interviews as real and honest as possible, no one interviewed was ever told, beforehand, that they were going to be asked any questions about the LDS religion.
After the camera stopped rolling, Daryn and Jed often had longer conversations with the people they interviewed, in order to clear up misconceptions and answer questions about the LDS church.
After filming and returning home, Daryn and Jed ran around Salt Lake City tracking down Weston and Casen, (two young men interviewed on the Las Vegas strip), in order to do follow-up footage for the documentary.
