After 10 years, my good citizen/friend Josh Tickell-Alternative Fuel Expert has finally released his film. I was privy to see it last year & left feeling hopeful & empowered. It picks up where Gore’s film
“An Inconvenient Truth” left off. Activist & Filmmaker, Josh tells us how to wean ourselves OFF foreign oil. He is a true solutionary!
Mo: Another project that is near and dear to my heart is “Gorilla in the Greenhouse.”
Think School House Rock on the green tip, circa 2008. Ralph Guggenheim (founding member of Pixar & producer of “Toy Story”) called me up about 6 months ago to audition and lo and behold, I booked it! I play the voice of 10 year old boy, “Bucket” who is the “solutionary” in the band of eco-warriors. Bucket is the drummer in the group. The songs are educational & very catchy. I like to call them earworms. The 1st episode is about the North Pacific Gyre. Gyres are where the ocean currents terminate. Our throw away society is wreaking havoc in our oceans. The ratio of plastic to plankton now is 6 to 1. Marine life mistakes the plastic for food so they feed and feed yet receive no nutrition & end up dying. Recently, we recorded the 2nd episode on energy. It’s in post production as we speak, more to ensue.
