A Reason To Change made a splash at film festivals and was released on our website 6/26/2017. A Reason To Change is a collaborative effort between director Stacey Zipfel and Terry Simons. ARTC is a hybrid combination of old school MTV music video with the power of a documentary on canine and children’s cancer. Director Stacey likes to call it a documentary dipped in a music video.
The film produced by Zippery Zoo Productions, which also produced My Friend: Standing Strong includes dog lovers and supporters, Chris Durkee of 4-Legged Flix as Director of Photography and DC Creative in Burbank who supplied editing. 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, Page Jackson, Trevor Okwaho Hayes, Dr. Avenelle Turner, and introduces Jay Patriarca as the Boy and Ripper as the Dog.
Feel the Reel International Film Festival has this to say about ARTC ‘A Reason to Change’ is a game-changer in this business and we totally should keep an eye on its future path.’
We hope you enjoy our video and that it brings a greater understanding that, as the lyrics say “Together we can change the world” and together we can beat cancer.
Our first documentary, My Friend: Changing the Journey is a groundbreaking, award-winning film about canine lymphoma. My Friend: Changing the Journey, will take dog lovers on their own informative journey of awareness and hope as it weaves interviews from highly respected oncologists, veterinarians and canine care professionals throughout three inspiring stories of dogs who are battling lymphoma and in some cases even beating the disease.
You can find My Friend: Changing the Journey on our website as well as in rotation on the FidoTV network. Contact them for viewing schedule. http://fidotvchannel.com
