Crowdsourcing Mornings: Fat: A Documentary

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

They want you to join them in making a powerful and effective film that creates a paradigm shift in how the world thinks about diet, fat and weight loss. Vinnie Tortorich and world-renowned experts – doctors, scientists, and nutritionists from around the world will participate to discuss how we can turn this ship around.  But to make this documentary, they need your help.  By making a donation, no matter how small, you can put your name on the project and make your voice count. They want to make a film that transcends the average “health documentary.” They want this to positively affect millions of people and be a force for change.

Weight loss expert Vinnie Tortorich and award-winning filmmaker Peter Pardini want you to join their team to make a hard-hitting documentary film that exposes the widespread myths and lies around healthy eating, fat and weight loss and shows how, in spite of all our good intentions, we go on getting fatter and fatter.  They are looking to raise $150,000. This is the golden number where they will be able to get what they need to get done and more. Ideally, they’d like to raise as much as possible. Further, to get it to the level they know we can get it to, there are expenses, such as…

  • A documentary takes time and location changes. They will need to hire camera people, grips and other crew as well as pay for any clip and music licensing that may arrive on the back end of making this film.
  • They have amazing rewards for contributing to this campaign which include the movie, coffee subscriptions, producing credits, and even an in-home consult with Vinnie and Serena!

They’re ready. Are you?

As of June 4th, this project has raised $160,000 of their $150,000 goal. This project has 3 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $15, you will get a PDF of transcribed interviews.  For a pledge of $25, you will get a digital download of the movie.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
