I’ve been thinking since June 2020 when it was clear that HCQ was being systematically disparaged (the fraudulent Surgisphere study published in the Lancet, peer-reviewed, nailed, retracted) that Michael Moore needed to do one of his films to expose this epic health scandal. Course he’s a prob’y a blue pill guy — but mustn’t he smell the stench, being a doubter of official narratives in general? My suggestion: Lure audiences with some clever doublespeak in the title. Don’t give away the Thesis as in “Cartel” — Seaspiracy, Plandemic, Vaxxed. 90% of the very people we want to have watch are already gone after hearing the title.

Great point. Yes I'll think very carefully about it. With Michael Moore - yes I suspect he'll do a good job. The issue is that people don't want to wed themselves to the ship until they're absolutely sure it's seaworthy. It's one of the most toxic subjects out there.

The moment it looks like we might win, I think we'll start to see a big outpouring of support.

So agree - people like to join the winning team. (Kind of pathetic to those of us inclined to root for the underdog...the empath types. ;)

I fully support what you are doing but can only afford £10 a month. Please keep going. I hope you can get the funding required for the film. You have powerful forces against you.

I have just looked at your subscriptions options and my preference is to support you via your £7.00 option. I would prefer that as I hope it will add help support you with all your articles. The remaining £3.00 is not going to help the film funding so I hope thats the best way to help you continue with this crusade.

Hi. I’m a documentary filmmaker based in Johannesburg and have been following this since it began. I naively tried to sell in the early treatment story to major international broadcasters (with a trailer) last June. No dice. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance as a contact in Africa. Have worked extensively all over the continent and have contacts lined up and ready to go. If there’s anything I can do, just say the word.

Hey that's helpful to know. I had the same experience trying to get the early treatment story off the ground in the UK. The media are incapable, absolutely incapable of engaging with this subject matter. We're going to have to do this thing ourselves. Thanks for reaching out - I'm gonna stay in fund raise mode and then lets see.

Hi, I don't have the funds to support you financially but I can help with motion graphics/charts etc. I have AE, Maya, DaVinci and reasonably proficient in all of them

I prefer your, what was quite regular, detective series.

The Doshi article is fantastic, however I shared it on social media.. only to receive this nonsense censoring alert calling the paper "misleading" and a "fact-checking" article that dismisses the findings of the Doshi paper. I've never been so infuriated. This is not how science works. As a nurse, I feel like I work within a framework riddled with fraud, it's completely disheartening.

The nonsense they linked onto my post:

Back when I was on fb I shared one of Doshi’s BMJ pieces and got the same response. Fb knows better than BMJ?!! Absolutely infuriating.

Oh, it makes me sick that the so called fact checkers eat from the troughs of the vaccine sponsors and investors. Who in their right mind can ever trust the "naked emperors'" of the FDA/ NIH/ MHRA!

Phil, good luck. Anything on this subject is important to get out there however one can. The crowd funding model is good because no mainstream (commercial) producer will touch it with a barge pole mainly because there is no guarantee of distribution hence recoupment of their costs - I know, I've tried, I've been in too many Zoom calls with documentary makers cock-sure that their idea is going to fly, only to be jolted back to earth by the reality of the viciousness of censorship and its mission creep. Unless you self fund, crowd fund or find philanthropic capital with no return conditions it will be extremely difficult to fund it commercially. So well done on crowd funding.

Regardless, one's enemy is still distribution. Even if one gets to make the Citizen Kane of documentaries unless one finds a brave outlet/channel/didtibutor prepared to absorb the flack that will be dealt out and the associated fall-out, all our films tend to end up in an on-line YouTube alternative echo-chamber only to be seen by the converted.

The real challenge of a films success is getting to a mainstream audience. There are many marketing and positioning techniques but perhaps attracting a massive name that can't be ignored (a Michael Moore, Al Gore (er...) etc), using a red herring as a narative hook to get people interested (as Lisa Laehy suggests) or finding a mainstream organisation/outlet who have the cojones or who have had enough/seen the light or the future to air it. I really can't see Netflix and their ilk buying into it yet (which is where you ideally want it to live - have you seen the viwership!). Perhaps when the tide turns and they see what side of history they are on, sorry, I mean see the mega bucks to be made, they'll conveniently change policy.

So carry on regardless, perhaps then you might just have the right film at the right time.

i would recommend reaching out to Dinesh D'Souza for his advice on how to market and release the film. He has developed some quite effective methods and has plowed new ground in this area of trying to get a film out as widely as possible in a environment of hostility.

Imma post it on Reddit

I think this is a great idea! I hope that you are able to crowdsource this film and get started on it right away.

I also think we need to start looking seriously at legal strategies for suing the medical journals. They are engaging in outright fraud. They know it, and we know it. But unlike all the other players who are likewise engaging in fraud (i.e. the vaccine makers, the government, the doctors, the hospitals), medical journals are not covered under "emergency use." They have no immunity. They can claim no legal protection, that I can see, when they knowingly publish studies that are riddled with obvious errors (e.g. NEJM Ivermectin study; Lancet HCQ study), all conveniently pointing in one direction. Suing them could potentially open these journals up to a discovery process that would include looking at their sponsorship and the blatant conflicts of interest inherent within, as well as at all the rock-solid manuscripts they've rejected because the results didn't point in the direction sanctioned by their sponsors.

The medical journals have played a central role in this fiasco, by giving cover to all the other players. Their deceit has led to hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths, and many times that number of what are likely to be permanent injuries.

They should be held liable and, at the very least, put out of business.

Those with even a bit of spare cash could place adverts into mainstream news media to point people to collections of facts like SubStack. I have tried with no discernible benefit with non-existent funds in Finland relating to the Vitamin-D3 silencing.

Fabulous idea. Have you spoken w Jonathon Otto or Andrew Wakefield, both of whom would be excellent with support for moving this forward, I believe. Mike Adams of Natural News is another who you might tap for support.

Is there a way to support with a gift card?
