Jeff Hays today announced that principal photography has begun on the new documentary film – Bought. A new crowd funding campaign at indiegogo.com has an early trailer. Bought is a film dedicated to uncovering, exposing and highlighting the facts all individuals have a right to know. Andrew Wakefield may have been credited for the global awakening of the potential relationship between MMR vaccinations and autism, which has been highly controversial and debated heavily, but Bought is committed to uncovering the facts so each person can make the decision that is right for him or her.
Landmark cases have been won this year in U.S. Vaccine Court, granting families of autistic children financial awards for the damage caused to their children by vaccinations. For the first time ever, several of these families have agreed to be interviewed on camera, and let their stories be heard publicly.
“Andrew Wakefield has a role in this film because there is new evidence that has been uncovered that suggests his findings were correct. The media has tried him and virtually ruined his reputation. I’m here to expose the facts because I believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. However, it appears much of the medical/industrial/governmental machine is about sacrificing a few, for the supposed greater good of others,” said Jeff Hays, producer of Bought. “We intend to ignite a national conversation that involves parents nationwide and stirs the curiosity of millions. I want to ignite that innate portion of our human instinct that is designed to question and ultimately protect each of us from harm. I know this is controversial, and it should be. The days of just accepting what the medical community, the media and the government say should be gone.”
The American Academy of Pediatrics says that vaccines work, that vaccines are safe, and that vaccines are necessary. Yet:
- Over 5,000 cases alleging a causal relationship between vaccinations and autism have been filed under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program in the US Court of Federal Claims between 2001 and 2009
- The US Court of Federal Claims Office of Special Masters, between 1988 and 2009, has awarded compensation to 1,322 families whose children suffered brain damage from vaccines
- Over $2 billion dollars has been awarded to families who have been injured or killed by vaccine reactions by this “Vaccine Court”
- About 30,000 cases of adverse reactions to vaccines have been reported annually to the federal government since 1990, with 13% classified as serious, meaning associated with permanent disability, hospitalization, life-threatening illness or death
- Autism has skyrocketed from 1 in 10,000 to nearly 1 in 38 American children (according to some reports)
“I was warned not to include Andrew Wakefield in the production of this film.” said Jeff Hays. He’s a lightening rod, and can automatically draw criticism to a project that has just begun. But this film isn’t about defending Andrew, the facts are going to vindicate Andrew Wakefield. This film is to help people determine what kind of country we want to live in: either one where we each have personal medical freedom…or one where the government decides what’s best for our children.”
According to Web MD, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the CDC, the World Health Organization and the Institute of Medicine all agree that there’s probably no relationship between autism and vaccines. However, even Senator John McCain stated on the campaign trail that he thought there was “pretty strong evidence” that some vaccines cause autism.
Parents are bombarded with tons of information and Jeff is dedicated to providing one source of education and to create a portal where answers can be found. Experts are being interviewed and never before information is being revealed.
Jeff Hays and Bobby Sheehan decided to enlist the public in the fund raising activities and are hosting their campaign on the popular Indigogo site, at http://www.supportboughtmovie.com. They are one-third of the way to the fund-raising goal, which is further evidence of the power of crowd funding, especially with such a controversial topic as this.
Jeff’s parting comment, “Just look at the fact that it wasn’t until 1998 that the U.S. Public Health Service Group determined that thimerosal could give children a dose of mercury that exceeded the limit considered safe by government standards. Every person has the right to know what they are consuming or being given by the medical community.”
Bought is a film about the issue of health being sold out from underneath individuals through big pharmaceutical companies, dangerous vaccinations and a food supply chain contaminated by the use of GMO’s. Jeff Hays started Capstone Entertainment in the mid-nineties and built a production/distribution company to a multi-million dollar level and won numerous awards in children’s programming. One of Jeff’s most notable films was Fahrenhype 9/11, which he produced in 2004 featuring Ron Silver, Dick Morris, Senator Zell Miller, Mayor Ed Koch and others. This film generated millions in revenue and was widely accepted by the public and received positive reviews from the NY Times, Variety and other media. In 2005, Jeff produced On Native Soil where he was short-listed for an Academy Award. He also produced My Workout on Lifetime Television for a year and most recently released Doctored which has already sold over 150,000 copies. Bought is currently scheduled to be released Spring 2014.
