Hello PitBull Talkers,
It has been awhile since I have logged on here or any other Pit Bull forum. I have been really busy trying to do my part in reversing the perception the dogs we all love and adore. A little over four years ago, I embarked on a project I had no idea what I was getting myself into. It started about a month prior to Michael Vick being suspected of dogfighting charges. I have always been an animal lover, especially dogs, and I wanted to do something to help change the way we see animal cruelty with a documentary film. The day Vick was caught, I took that as a sign and started my anti-dogfighting film. About ten months later, the film took a slight left and became what it is today, a breed discrimination film, due to the city in which I resided in at the time (Lakewood, Ohio) proposing and eventually passing a ban of Pit Bull and "canary" dogs. Right around the time that I changed the topic to BSL, I was adopting my boy, Preston, who was a rescue American Pit Bull Terrier, who was saved from a drug bust where they used him for fighting. Everyday this becomes more and more personal...words just cannot describe my love for this amazing dog.

Recently, about a month ago, we finally launched the initial trailer to "Guilty 'Til Proven Innocent, titled "FEAR," and it has become very well received. Currently we are at around 4,000 views, with little to no marketing. We would like to maintain some of the momentum we have had at this early stage, and are asking you to help spread the word.

The trailer can be viewed at:

We have also created a Facebook page for the film, where we will post updates to the film, among other things. Please "like" this page:
http://www.facebook.com/GuiltyTilProvenInnocent

And last, we have a website that we are releasing phase 2 of in the very near future. Right now, the URL is:
http://www.GuiltyTilProvenInnocentDoc.com

But soon, we will be shortening the domain to and redirecting to the above domain:
http://www.GTPIfilm.com

We plan on releasing the second trailer in the next month. If anybody has any questions whatsoever, please do not hesitate to reach out. Thank you everybody!

Sincerely,

You are right, I love pit bulls and I loved this. I just hate that you have to make it in the first place. :( Keep up the good work.

Thank you MADREMISSY! Please share and help spread the word. It is a shame that I have to put the time and effort into something that should be against the law, but since this is the reality, I couldn't think of something I would want to spend my time on. Thank you!

Thank you all! I have meant to logon this week to respond to anybody who posted, but it has been a busy week. Besides getting the film finished, we are also involved with getting Cleveland, Ohio's vicious law changed to a breed neutral law, and on Wednesday it passed the Safety Committee. It is now scheduled to be heard in the Finance Committee on Monday June 6, 2011. Very exciting stuff! Thank you again everybody, and please pass the word down.
