What your doctor didn't learn in medical school... and why.
I'm going way out on a limb here, with a big, bold claim: Undoctored will be the most important film in the history of chiropractic. No kidding.
We needed to spend a year making Doctored to learn what we needed to know to make this film.
We've not only learned what we need to shoot and portray, but we've learned where the market is- we've learned how to get to get the message out to the public. Doctored is already the most successful film in this genre, Undoctored will dwarf it.
Big talk right?
If "Doctored" was what's wrong with the system, Undoctored is what to do about it. We say that Undoctored picks up where Doctored left off.
The tag line is "What your doctor didn't learn in medical school… and why." The "why" part is the controversial part, the "loud noise" that makes the crowd look. It is as shocking as you would imagine. But the "what" is the real story.
The clear lines between "drugs-and-surgery-first" health care and natural care have never been more apparent. The data is in and that's the real story. In study after study, a new form of health care is emerging. Natural health care has won the battle and no one knows yet. The total failure of the "drugs/surgery first" is unavoidable. Opinions become irrelevant when reality imposes itself, as it is now. When 80% of our population will die of (mostly) avoidable chronic disease, the "who pays" argument becomes irrelevant.
We're at a real turning point in our country's history. Runaway sick care costs and a sick population are forcing new options to be considered, despite the powerful lobbying and advertising from the medical establishment.
We had trouble stopping filming for Doctored. We kept running into more and more stories, one led to another, each one more mind-blowing than the last. Finally we had to draw the line, we had to stop and let these new, bigger stories wait.
That list of topics and stories is Undoctored. It's everything we learned in the last 18 months. It's controversial, it will make headlines, and it's ours.
Want to meet us in Park City, UT for Sundance in January, 2014?
Our plan is to have the film finished (at least a rough cut) in September for submission to Sundance for January release at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT.
Normally I avoid the film festival circuit. We have great relationships with key people in that arena, and I've always felt that if I made the right kind of controversial film, Sundance would be a great launching pad.
We've got the right connections, we've got a great subject, and we've got the beginnings of a great film. We can't guarantee acceptance into any film festival, much less one with the reputation of Sundance. But, if we make the film that we know how to make, I think we'll be there. Sundance would give Undoctored tremendous recognition right from the start.
In some of the rewards, you can choose between DVDs of the existing film, Doctored, or this film Undoctored, or mix and match any way you want. This version of Doctored is the remastered version, which has been edited to be 10 minutes shorter, has additional DVD extras, includes closed captioning and Spanish subtitle options, and a looping option to make the movie repeat; for use in a waiting room setting.
The film's total budget is $700,000. We set our crowdfunding goal at $100,000 because we just don't have the guts to bet that we can cover the entire budget with just crowdfunding. But that is our best case scenario, and what we're working for in this campaign. We have investors to fill the gap, but that is a far more expensive route and we want to minimize investor money as much as possible.
One of the mistakes we made on our last film is we were too open about what we intended. As a result, some doors closed that we would have normally been given access to. We're playing our cards much closer to our vest on this one.
Can I just say this?
We're going to shake the very foundation of traditional medicine with Undoctored.
Our purpose is the same, we want to make a difference in people's lives. We're not "anti" anything. We'll use the controversy to propel the message, but the message is the thing.
If you support drug-free healing as a first option, you're going to love Undoctored.
