I am an animal rights and vegan activist, and have been most of my life. I started my life as a 2nd generation vegetarian, and now have been vegan for half my life. It is now my intention that at least 75% of my diet be raw from now on. For those who know me ... among other things, I am the Writer and Director of Saints & Angels which was the first (and probably only) fictional feature film that shows the A.L.F. as heroes.
It seems to me, and others, that it is time that vegetarians, vegans, and animal rights activists be portrayed in a positive light in feature films and TV programs.
Let's face it, there are millions of vegetarians and vegans around the world, and many of us are insulted by being portrayed in films and TV shows as pale, 85 pound hippies that look sickly and need a murdered farm animal's carcass and dairy products to feel better. Environmentalists and animal rights activists are usually portrayed as kooks, too.
A bunch of vegetarian film and video cast and crew members have gotten together and now we plan on changing all that. We need your support. Obviously no one wants to encourage or be involved with any criminal activity and yet they still want to do whatever they can to promote animal rescue, welfare and rights. Helping us by becoming a Member of www.GreenLightFlix.com
will continue to give us the financial support we need to produce the films WE want to see. All Members will get a FREE DVD and other really cool stuff.
Imagine heroic films like 'Rocky,' dramatic films like 'The Breakfast Club,' romantic comedies like 'Serendipity,' and more --- except the main characters are obviously animal rights activists and vegetarians or vegans. That is what we plan to do. The positive examples will do more to promote our positive lifestyle than all the horrific slaughterhouse videos on You Tube.
Thanks to financial gifts from vegetarians, vegans, and animal rights activists, we have already begun production on two positive, uplifting, educational, and fun documentaries (V-Day and Guy Going Green). We also have two feature films in development and a series of "cooking videos."
I don't want to go against forum protocol and post any more information here unless it is requested, but if anyone has any ideas for scripts, or has completed scripts, or supports this idea, please let me know. We are on the same team and our intentions and expectations are high.
Imagine what the world would be like in the future if everyone is vegan and non-human animals are liberated.
Let's make a positive difference.
Keep up the great work!
