CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Zero Tolerance Entertainment has announced production on a new film whose proceeds will directly fund the appeal of Measure B.
"Not only will Measure B drive production out of Los Angeles County costing us thousands of jobs, but the filming will be forced underground where regular testing won't be the normal protocol," said Domenick Bongiorno, head of production at Zero Tolerance Entertainment. "It's less safe for the actors, and it's bad for business. We want to help change the decision."
Bongiorno is encouraging adult performers and crew members to support the production in exchange for copies of the film when it's released. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org for details and further information.
"It's important for people to understand that every sale of this film in any medium will be directly sent to the fund to overturn Measure B," says director Mike Quasar, who is currently writing the script for the production which, according to the company, will be a hilarious send-up lampooning the potential effects of Measure B and what it means for adult performers and producers. "We're joining together to help the Free Speech Coalition fight for our rights."
The Free Speech Coalition, of which Zero Tolerance is a member, plans to challenge Measure B in court saying the law is "unconstitutional on the grounds of forced expression," and also "falls within the jurisdiction of the state of California rather than local government," among other problems.
Zero Tolerance's 'Measure B Production' is currently untitled, and will begin filming in December, with the donated time and talent of filmmakers and performers who are passionate about the cause.
