Love Bomb is a feature documentary currently in production for completion in Fall 2013.
"Love Bomb" is a story about transforming trauma and fear into love and service. While living in New York City, Rhea Zimmerman experienced the emotional shock of the events on 9/11. This powerful shock ultimately moves her into action where she decides to do something that would begin her own healing process and assist her to express her hope for humanity. She finds this through chiropractic.
Watch as Rhea joins forces with chiropractors Dr. Austin Komarek and Dr. Alejandra Robles Arizmendi, to set out on a service trip that would unite them with the lives of thousands that they touch, changing all of their lives forever and hopefully inspiring those who witness it, to find their calling of loving service.
Ultimately this story reveals "what we are capable of" as human beings. From the tragic to the awe inspiring acts of loving service, now known as, "Love Bombs", to our innate capacity to heal, transform and connect.
Featuring Interviews With: Joseph Chilton Pearce, Gabrielle Bernstein, Elena Brower, John Welshons, Marilyn Schlitz, Dean Radin, Lisa Reagan, Kute Blackson, Dr. Jim Sigafoose, Dr. Jay Komarek, Dr. Pat Chelenyak, Dr. Paula Hedglon, Dr. Peter Amlinger, Dr. Jeanne Ohm, Sandra Del Prado and Guido Del Prado.

Dr. Rhea Zimmerman Producer & Director
As the Producer and Director of Love Bomb, The Movie, Dr. Rhea combines her performance arts background with a career in healing arts and human potential. Dr. Rhea's eye for storytelling through stage was trained while earning a B.A. in Dance from University of Washington, Seattle. She then gained valuable experience in event planning and video production as a marketing associate at Morgan Stanley in New York City. The transition to healing arts occurred in New York where she trained as a yoga teacher at the Om Yoga Studio. Her desire to help individuals find their optimal human expression took off when she earned her Doctor of Chiropractic at LCCW. She has now combined her arts background with her dedication to human transformation, mind/body healing, and chiropractic through her creations of the Breathe Love CD, the Blossom Life Projects service projects in the U.S. and abroad, as well as her own office, Blossom Chiropractic Studio, in the Napa Valley. Now she is putting all of this passion into making a film.
Gregg Marks Director of Photography & Editor
After 28 years in the music industry, Gregg decided to combine his love of music, photography and story telling and began working on Film and Video in NYC under the mentorship of director George Spyros. Immediately he fell in love with this new medium and was inspired to move to San Francisco, and commit himself to making documentary films that focus on human transformation and a call to action. His first feature documentary, "May I Be Frank" has inspired connection and healing for thousands of people. Since meeting Rhea and experiencing her life's work, he knew he wanted to be a part of bringing Love Bomb to life.
Where are we in Production?
We successfully raised $26,000 from November 2012 to January 2013 on Indiegogo in order to complete the production stages of our film as well as to get deep into the editing process. The process was an incredible way to confirm that so many people love the premise of Love Bomb and want to see it, and share it with others.

During the past four months we have completed all of our featured interviews (Joseph Chilton Pearce, Gabrielle Bernstein, Elena Brower, John Welshons, Marilyn Schlitz, Dean Radin, Lisa Reagan, Kute Blackson, Dr. Jim Sigafoose, Dr. Jay Komarek, Dr. Pat Chelenyak, Dr. Paula Hedglon, Dr. Peter Amlinger, Dr. Jeanne Ohm, Sandra Del Prado and Guido Del Prado), we captured footage at the 9/11 Memorial in New York City, and we have also returned to Peru where we were able to gather footage to enrich the experience of the viewer to feel that they are in the Sacred Valley with us as well as to ask the people that we serve, "what impact did we make in your eyes?"
We also proceeded deep into the editing process, creating most of our scenes from Peru, as well as editing the scripts of our interviews to be edited into scenes beginning in June of 2013.
We were also able to purchase our music suite which will provide much of the scene soundtrack, and we are in conversation with recording artists to be able to provide unique songs in the Love Bomb soundtrack.

The Powerful Impact of Love Bomb: Why This Film Matters To You
The reason I am compelled to make this film now, and am so confident in the inspiring impact of the messages inherent in it, is because it is a story that invokes hope where it has been lost or stifled. Hope in the innate capacity to heal, to trust, and to connect. Hope in human beings, in humanity, and in our loving connection.
So many of us are experiencing feelings of lack of power in the face of global and individual challenges and atrocities, and we need stories that ignite in us the reminder of our total connection to one another, to the life force of love within, and to the inherent capacity for growth, transformation, and impact that we all share.
Love Bomb is this story. It shows what each of us is capable of, and it asks us to move forward, to gain courage, and to step up to share our unique loving gifts with the world. I first used the term "Love Bomb" to express what happens when we, as chiropractors, go into a community and adjust thousands of people at one time, igniting massive opening and change, and deeply impacting consciousness. Now I see it as the name for the adjustment itself, for a kind word spoken, for a group effort for the common good, and as the loving tendencies of human beings already being expressed throughout the world. Its time we focus on them, ignite them, and intentionally deliver them!
By focusing on the theme of the Love Bomb, teaching people about it and demonstrating it in action with the film we aim to see the question of "what are we capable of" answered in a healthier, happier, and more peacefully empowered humanity.
