Becoming Bulletproof in The New York Times!
Hey everyone! The documentary about my movie, Becoming Bulletproof, just got a review in the New York Times!
“How’s Your News?” (HYN) first began more than ten years ago at a summer camp for adults with disabilities in Massachusetts, called Camp Jabberwocky. Campers would walk around Vineyard Haven doing man-on-the-street interviews. In the evenings they’d watch the videos with the entire camp. These videos got passed around and found their way to Matt Stone and Trey Parker, creators of South Park. With their help, the project grew into a cross-country documentary and then a half hour special on the Democratic and Republican political conventions in 2004, and eventually aired in six episodes on MTV.
HYN has been revived and, led by Jeremy, covered the 2008 and 2012 Republican and Democratic political conventions in Tampa and Charlotte.
They were posted on line in October 2012. The production is being funded by Matt and Trey.
They love “How’s Your News?” and offered to support it because they want to see it continue. But, rather than sell the idea to a new cable TV network, the plan is to post the documentary on the Internet. Director Arthur Bradford says, “this is an experiment in “How’s Your News?” distribution and if it works perhaps it will serve as a model for future trips.”
Jeremy Vest says, “I was thrilled, and ready for action. It was great reporting on the issues we need to discuss, and I had a lot of fun.”
The 2016 election is nearly one year away. Will the HYN? crew be back?
