'Cove' Creators Launch Kickstarter Campaign 'The Heist'

The clever minds behind the fantastic Academy Award-winning film “The Cove” are putting the final touches on their next documentary tentatively titled “The Singing Planet.”

If ‘The Cove’ was ‘Ocean’s Eleven,’ the new film’s going to be ‘Ocean’s Twelve,’” filmmaker Louie Psihoyos told the Wall Street Journal in 2011. “A little bit bigger, better, and higher quality in its production values.”

We’ve been talking about this one for awhile, which will focus on mass extinction and humanity’s role in causing it, but remained puzzled as to how Psihoyos and his team might inject the same undercover thrills that made the first as entertaining as it was informing.

Wonder no more – a new kickstarter campaign has just been launched to help Psihoyos’ Ocean Preservation Society fund an elaborate (and top secret) final part of the film currently nicknamed “The Heist.”

“The team that infiltrated The Cove is back—with some new faces—to hatch a plan even bigger and bolder than the last,” the campaign reads. “We’re bringing the sights and sounds of species on the brink of extinction to the front of the world stage, in an event that will forever change what it means to take action for the planet. Departing from the confines of a traditional documentary, the film will capture the drastic measures necessary for initiating cultural change while inspiring millions of viewers to join our mission.”

While the filmmakers are coy on what the undercover mission might be, a promo video shows a whole bunch of people pointing at buildings in NYC. So perhaps something with rogue video projection? No idea – either way, there’s enough here to make us excited over the potential.

The kickstarter goal is $50,000. Click here to donate and/or view the video below for more information.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
