Travel Schedule and Signup for Documentary Filming

UPDATE 2020-3-2: We’re returning to the US with our next stop being Low Carb Denver.

If you’re attending Low Carb Denver and are interested in interviewing, please see signup information below, and please read carefully.

Throughout 2020, we’re traveling around the world and throughout the United States filming a series of interviews on the science of lipids and cholesterol along with the emerging research on its relation to low carb diets and metabolism (which is my central focus here at CC).

We actually have a sophisticated setup with several cameras, lights, mics, and tripods. We hope to gather quite a lot of footage over these eight weeks.

Who We’re Interviewing and How to Join

First and foremost, please confirm you will be at Low Carb Denver (see schedule below). Please also be aware that we expect a lot of inquiries and will likely be unable to interview the majority of those applying. With that said, we hope to capture many interesting stories and opinions from medical and non-medical professionals alike.

We’re looking to interview three main groups of people.

  1. Lipidologists, Cardiologists, and researchers in the field of lipids and/or cardiovascular disease. It’s important to get perspectives from every side represented in the documentary. So whether you are pro-lipid hypothesis, a skeptic, or somewhere in between, we’d love to have you on.
    • If this category describes you and you’re interested in being interviewing for this documentary — Signup Here
  2. Low carb “Hyper-responders” and “Lean Mass Hyper-responders” – those who have had a pronounced increase in their total and LDL cholesterol since adopting the diet. We’re interested in a variety of stories and opinions on what these means to the individual.
    • If this category describes you and you’re interested in being interviewing for this documentary — Signup here
  3. Doctors who have low carb patients and how they are treating the rising number of cases for hyper-responders.
    • If this category describes you and you’re interested in being interviewing for this documentary — Signup Here

We will be in Denver at the conference and scheduling interviews between the times of 9am and 6pm, Mar 12th (Thursday) to Mar 15th (Sunday). Please let us know in the signup if you are available throughout these times and if now, when you are/are not.

What the Documentary is and When it Will Be Released

While we know the subject matter of what we’re filming, the exact nature of its final format when it will be released is yet to be determined. We’re seeking to capture many, many hours of interviews that help tell the story of how we got this this point of understanding with cholesterol and risk, how hyper-responders from the low carb movement have opened new questions, and what the next steps are for the science in this field.

This may be a feature length documentary, or it may be a series of shorter segments tackling each topic in succession. Regardless, it won’t change our efforts to capture as much footage as we can for experts, doctors of low carb patients, and hyper-responders from around the world. This is a story that certainly needs to be explored.

Update to the Film Project will be Posted Here

Lastly, be aware that this blog post will be where updates are posted — so bookmark it now. These updates will likely be added at the top of this page in reverse order of the timing so you only have to scan the top to know if there is something new to report.

And as always, I’ll be actively posting updates on Twitter as well @DaveKeto

What happened to 1/6 of mankind, India? Dr Nadir Ali’s and Priyanka Wali’s native land? We’ve had a strong LCHF movement here since June, 2016, especially in the Southern state of Tamil Nadu.

US travel comes after – this is just for international interviews. 🙂

TBA! We’re a small team, so we have to take things one step at a time, planning wise. There will be an update post when new locations/dates are decided. 🙂

I live in Lund in the southern part of Sweden. It takes about an hour to go from Copenhagen to Lund by car.

Good luck with your project! It is highly needed

Dear Dave and team, if you were only to interview one person in Scandinavia then it is Uffe Ravnskov. He is an absolute pioneer and has a wealth of insight. Regards Peter

Agreed. if you’re in Copenhagen see Uffe – take the train to Malmo and then from there it’s easy.

Wow Dave. You’re quite organized. Those look like SONY MIRRORLESS cameras!

Dave,

To quote from you above: “and what the next steps are for the science in this field.” One of the next steps seems the subject of LDL-P (P= particle) and/or apoB, (as a measure of apoB includes LDP-P + other particles). And the sizes (small, medium, large) of the apoB containing particles.
There are certainly those who believe these to be “the best measure of potentially atherogenic lipoproteins” to quote Peter Attia MD and there certainly others who think this.

I hope that you can include a discussion of this “science in this field” with at least some of your interviewees

Thank you for that you do – and have a safe and rewarding adventure!

Hi Philip, funnily enough Dave just posted a bit about LDL-P and ApoB here that you might find of interest. I wouldn’t be surprised if LDL-P and apoB come up over the course of the documentary, honestly, just because of the nature of it but it depends on the interviewees and what they want they want to discuss/how it naturally develops. The latest update on the documentary is here.

So I’m yet to receive any feedback on my application for the Sydney filming…

Hi, just to confirm I reached out to Dave to pass on your concern and he said he’ll be reaching out to you privately for follow-up. Thanks for reaching out. 🙂

Hi Dave and Siobhan, I can’t add any expertise other than my own lean hyper responder testimony (58-year old woman on carnivore diet), but if you come to Madrid I’d love to contribute. And make you all a nice carnivore meal 🙂

Hi – I’m holding down the fort while Dave travels, but thanks for your interest! If any additional travel plans are made we’d definitely announce them so you could sign up as well. 🙂

As for me, every time, when I travel, I don’t take many cameras, because I prefer to watch everything with my own eyes. It is good, when you have memories, but, it is better when you experienced feelings.
