Travel Schedule and Signup for Documentary Filming

From January 7th to February 29th my wife and I will be traveling around the world (literally) and 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 check the schedule below to confirm we’re coming to your city and country when you would be available to be interviewed (details 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 — please sign up 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 — please sign up here.
  3. Doctors who have low carb patients and how they are treating the rising number of cases for hyper-responders.

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.

Extraordinary Thanks to the Mrs

I have to take a moment to thank the Mrs for her tireless efforts in researching and capturing a huge cache of points and miles that are covering the vast majority of this trip. It was a year-long project and required a lot of sophisticated credit card swapping, targeted timing for purchases, and lots and lots of reward programs. That… plus we’re cashing in prior points and miles from before this year.

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.
