America meeting people for I’m Vegan, the crew stopped for an on-camera chat with the professor about animal rights and veganism.

Better know veganism! Press play.

Over the hump


As of now, we’ve finished shooting 38 profilee interviews. We only have a couple dozen or so more to go! I think we hit our halfway mark back in Los Angeles, which was a bit of a whirlwind visit. Then again, most of our stops have been whirlwind visits. Every once in a while we’ll be somewhere long enough and not have quite so much planned that we can’t find time to change the oil in the van and so on. I haven’t had much time to record, edit, and upload video, so that may have to wait until I return to Boston. Meantime, here are a couple of pictures. One is Spencer shooting Arizona dairy feedlot footage from the roof of a van and the other is Spencer and I preparing to shoot an interview with one of our profilees in San Francisco.

Animal Voices Radio chats with Eric about “I’m Vegan”


As “casting” starts to wrap up, things will start getting more active around here, I suspect. I’ve started this weekend by going through just the raw data (age, race, body type, gender identification, location, etc.) to help me get a handle on the options I have to ensure a diverse “cast” of vegans to interview. Still want to submit? Hurry and get your submission in this weekend!

In the meantime, I’ve been the subject of a couple of interviews myself. Look for an online interview to go live at VegNews.com some time this weekend. Fabulous mag editor Aurelia d’Andrea asked me a few questions that may give you a little more insight into the project.

230x154_avlogo1You can also listen to my archived radio interview with Animal Voices‘ Lauren Corman. It just went live late on Friday, so I had a chance to give it a listen in the background while working on casting stuff. From what I could tell, I managed to avoid sounding like a blathering idiot for nearly the entire broadcast, so it might be worth checking out! (FYI, the interview starts about 10 minutes in, after the news)
