Some potentially useful updates


Hi, I’m Vegan viewers, friends, and fans. I have some new tools at your disposal.

You and those you know can now subscribe to I’m Vegan via iTunes, through which you can download the h.264 1080p MPEG-4 files used as masters at the blip.tv site (one of the other hosts I’m using for propagating the series). These files will download as podcasts, then you can locate them on your computer through iTunes (right-click or ctrl-click on the episode to bring up a menu, then chose “Show in Finder”). Remember that you are not permitted to modify the profiles, but you might find it useful to download them for use instead of relying on embedding. For instance, you can save the files to a DVD to pass on to others or to show people in a kiosk or classroom.

Due to a technical glitch, it may take some time for I’m Vegan: Regina to show up in the list.

Also, note that the home page has changed a little for the sake of simplicity. However, it may not be obvious that you use the arrows located to the right and left of the main video to navigate to other video profiles currently available in I’m Vegan’s YouTube channel.

Finally, below the video I have added some information on veganism. For those non-vegans you send these videos or talk to about this project (or really anyone you want to look into veganism further), you can refer to them to the home page at vegandocumentary.com for an introduction to the whys and hows of veganism.

I hope you find these features useful!

First profiles uploading to YouTube now


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:

Long overdue update


I have to keep this quick, since it’s pretty late, and I have to be up at 6am.

Editing on I’m Vegan has been on hold for a couple of months due to a restaurant I am working to open here in Boston. More details on Peace o’ Pie Gourmet Vegan Pizza at our home page, our Twitter feed, and our Facebook page, with more information to come in the next week. I hope to be back to editing before too much longer.

Thanks for your patience!


Editing under way


Hi, all. This is just a quick update from the “editorial suite” to let you know that, now that my broken wrist has sufficiently mended, editing has finally begun.

Today I finished a rough cut of the first profile to be edited. It’s nice to see the footage come together at roughly the length I was hoping for and to see it cut together pretty well (not too much hair-pulling so far). I’m looking forward to watching it again in a couple of days or so to polish it up and do all the audio work that still needs to be done (editing, mixing, etc.).

In the meantime I’ll start on another profile. I’d like to have a few done before going live with the videos, which means it will be at least another month before I post the first batch, so stay tuned!
