Truly one of the great comedy minds of our time, director Adam McKay has now used his powers for the betterment of mankind. He's created a magical land inhabited by multi-colored Alpacas who love lollipops and rainbows, to teach us about the growing divide in wealth distribution. It's called "The Unbelievably Sweet Alpacas". Just one of 20 short films for Morgan Spurlock's "We The Economy" project.
It's voiced by a winning trifecta of comedy talent: Sarah Silverman, Amy Poehler, and Maya Rudolph. NPR Host & economist Adam Davidson advised. Cinelan Managing Partner David Laks offers a pre-interview interview, explaining the program. Documentarian Miao Wang made a short docu about Chinese factories in South Carolina that must be seen. She's in the roundtable with Adam McKay. Damon Smith, Supervising Producer, Cinelan is the moderator.
Thanks to the SideShow Network, I joined Mr. McKay in a round table discussion at the press conference for "We The Economy". It's documentarian Morgan Spurlock's series of short films by notable filmmakers. Each director teamed with actual economists to craft eye-opening, and often funny shorts.
