Interview Subjects Needed For Documentary Film

Hey All,

I'm working with a team of film makers from Scary Cow and we're looking for interview subjects for a documentary. Read on to see if it's a good match!

Has the economic recession changed you for the better?

Have you been laid off or lost your home to foreclosure? Are you having a hard time making your mortgage payments or paying medical bills or health insurance? Do you see the recession as an opportunity to reassess what really matters, find joy and meaning and make positive changes in how you live your life?

If you have a compelling story to tell, we want to hear from you! We are a San Francisco-based team of filmmakers producing a documentary film that focuses on personal and social transformation in the economic recession. Our goal is to document how people are being affected by the recession and how the choices they make are transforming their lives. By taking a close look at how people are using the recession as an opportunity to “be the change” we will weave a story of hope and perseverance.

Whether you are in the midst of transforming your life, or have already come through the storm and are ready to share your wisdom with others we want to hear how the recession is affecting your family, relationships and home life, your job and money and your day to day habits and choices.

If you are interested in being interviewed and featured in the film, please write to: Provide a short synopsis of how your life has been affected by the economy. Share your age and location as well. We will review all submissions and get back to you if your story matches well with what we are looking for. We will shoot all interviews in April on the weekends. We are willing to travel outside of the Bay Area, but not out of state. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD to your friends and communities!

Star of the Segway Article

Okay, not really the star but I am the "mama duck" that leads the group in a video put together by two journalism students from San Francisco State University.

How can you tell they're journalism students? Well, they spelled my name wrong -but hey, fact checking is so overrated.

You can read the Segway article and after you're done, click the link to watch the Segway video!

Until you can come down and take a tour yourself, this is an easy alternative.
