Crown Jewel

Director Notes

This film represents some ideas Babe [Baker] and I [Greg Herman] feel very strongly about. Food is key to our survival and good or healthy food is essential for our well being. Not only does our machine help the environment, but helps everyone grow their own nutritionally rich foods. Becoming less dependent on what the government decides to feed us, becoming more self sufficient and supportive of our independent growers and local farms. To promote our solution, we felt a broken retro style commercial aesthetic was appropriate as advertising is still part of the problem. The Crown Jewel is solar powered, featuring a detector for separating Heirlooms from Genetically Modified seeds, with preset ultimate growing conditions for your fruits and veggies, and built-in compost bin. We hope you enjoy the film.
