SCREENING OF MUSIC VIDEO/DOCUMENTARY, “A REASON TO CHANGE”
AT THE BARE BONES INTERNATIONAL FILM AND MUSIC FESTIVAL
TO MAKE PEOPLE AWARE OF COMPARATIVE ONCOLOGY
March 2017 – Los Angeles, CA – CLEAR’s second documentary “A Reason To Change” a hybrid combination of old school MTV music video with the power of a documentary on canine and children’s cancer will be screened at the Bare Bones International Film and Music Festival in Muskogee, Oklahoma at the historic Roxy Theater on April 21st, 2017.
The video is set to the original song, “A Reason to Change.” The song’s lyrics are written by CLEAR’s founder Terry Simons, music composed by Elias and arranged by Ted Perlman. The song is beautifully performed by Page Jackson with backup vocals from Terry Young and Alfie Silas Durio. The song is a call to action for pet owners and humans to fight cancer…”Together we can change the world.” The objective of the piece is to make the public aware of Comparative Oncology, which is the study of naturally occurring cancers in both companion animals and humans to find new and effective treatments that benefit humans and animals.
CLEAR first became aware of comparative oncology while filming their award winning documentary, MY FRIEND: CHANGING THE JOURNEY. CLEAR knew that the world needed to learn about this area of cancer research. What better way than a six minute video set to music in order to get people started?
The film was produced by Zippery Zoo Productions and directed by Stacey Zipfel, who also directed MY FRIEND: CHANGING THE JOURNEY. Chris Durkee of 4-Legged Flix was Director of Photography and editing was supplied by DC Creative in Burbank. The video tells the story of a boy and a dog, both battling cancer, who ultimately help one another through comparative oncology. The video stars Terry Simons, Brie Strohmeyer, Caroline van der Wyk, Dr. Avenelle Turner, Page Jackson, Trevor Okwaho Hayes and introduces Jay Patriarca as the Boy and Ripper as the Dog.
“We really came together as a family with a common goal on this project and that love shines in the video,” says director Stacey Zipfel.
CLEAR is a 501(c)(3) corporation, was founded five years ago by Terry Simons when his heart and soul dog, Reveille, was diagnosed with lymphoma on November 23, 2011 and subsequently passed on December 1, 2012. The foundation’s mission is to create a greater awareness of canine lymphoma while helping to educate dog owners of prevention, options and that lymphoma is not a death sentence.
