A Documentary Project

First profiles uploading to YouTube now

0 Comments

It’ll be several hours before the first documentary videos are (finally!) ready for viewing, but they are uploading to YouTube as I write this. You can watch them there, on the Videos page here, or even on the home page, but I also will blog about them individually to make sure blog subscribers are notified when the videos are ready to view.

The first five profilees are:

8 days left…

3 Comments

The days are going fast, with little time to deal with the occasional small technical issues, but fortunately we’re able to work around everything so far (even if the results are not always optimal).

I think we have about 12 more profiles to shoot before we return to Boston on May 13th. Right now we’re in Chicago, with a couple days to go here before we head further east again. We’ll stop at another animal sanctuary in Michigan on Thursday, and then head to Toronto on Friday. I guess we’ll finally be back in our usual time zone soon, which will be nice.

Here’s some more pictures from our travels to tide you over until I can post videos again (if you want more frequent updates, you can follow our progress at Twitter):

Less than two weeks to go before we return to Boston. We still have several stops to make along the way, but I thought I’d take a moment tonight to look back a little.

In the last week or so we met Michelle at Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary, numerous profilees, and a number of enterprising vegan entrepreneurs who are offering the public some great vegan food. At one point I even walked through the front door of a meat packing plant in Boise, ID. Of course the people in the front office rebuffed my request to shoot inside (wish we could have gotten that conversation on camera!). There’s so much we haven’t been able to shoot, so many people we haven’t been able to meet, but I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to see us, taken pains to accommodate and/or feed us, and who have otherwise made this trip such a success.

Below are a few photos Matthew took in Colorado. One was taking while setting up an interview, while the others were taken at Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary. I’ll let you figure out which ones are which… ;)

More photos and a note about I’m Vegan merch

1 Comment

You’ll notice that the site’s Merch link has been pulled for the time-being. I’ve heard from some of you who want to wear I’m Vegan apparel, and I look forward to providing that for you! However, I’ve been made aware of a business similar to CafePress that appears to make more of an effort to produce and source its products more sustainably and ethically than CafePress, so I want switch the store over to that service when I have time to resolve technical concerns and to build a new storefront (which may be a while).

In the meantime, here are some more pictures from our shoot, mainly DC and FL:

Hi, all.

Sorry the updates have been so sparse! Over the past 10 days, Spencer, Matthew, and I have visited many warm and welcoming vegans and we have interviewed over 20 of them for both the I’m Vegan profiles and for the feature I’m hoping to put together.

We’ve been going nearly non-stop since leaving Boston, with very little downtime. We’re in Florida now, so we’ve made it all the way down the coast and over into the panhandle, but we have a long way to go before we complete our loop out to the West Coast and back to Boston! Thank you for sticking with us on our journey and look forward to sharing with you some of the things we’ve seen and heard along the way.
