Mamma! shows us what life could look like after animal extinction. An alternative reality where human prisoners become livestock to feed the masses, a future we may see if we don't change now. Mamma!'s set will be 100% vegan and environmentally friendly. It's our mission to save lives and the earth.
Inclusion StatementThis film creates a space for people to think about their diet in a number of ways. Calling attention to the ethics of meals, the rate of consumption, and utilizing compassion for human life, Mamma! demonstrates the harm that unnecessary and poorly planned consumption can bring to our future.
About The Project
M A M M A !
Dive into a world where human prisoners are being farmed for their flesh and dairy secretions. A world where cannibalism has been normalized. An alternate reality where children are torn from their Mother's arms. This is the everyday, in the world of Mamma!
Desired to put an end to cannibalism is our protagonist, Riley Freeman. Riley is a vegan activist that works for the Human Liberation Front, she fights to save the lives of human prisoners.
MAMMA! has been set into pre-production with the aid of Loyola Marymount University and numerous Film & TV students. Our goal is to simply promote awareness over diet; to call people into a better conscious understanding of what they are eating.
Learn how your contribution or time could help the environment and animals across the globe. Your compassion will contribute to a better tomorrow.

In brief, this project is about
Food, and Future.
Class, and Circumstance.
The Exposition of Eating Habits, and
"Mmmm, I think I'll pass on a glass of milk."
Riley, dedicated to saving lives, goes undercover in attempt to expose human dairy farmers for their cruel practices. Riley hides her true profession from the"Deen family", as she sneaks around their home to uncover the secrets of their family business. They make their riches off of dairy farming, but they've adapted their methods as the world has changed for the worse over the years. What Riley discovers will shock you.
Would you risk it all to expose what's hidden from the public? Or would you take another bite of dinner and be blissfully ignorant?

This film is not just for people who abstain from eating animal products, because our mission is not to control what you eat. Its an effort to call attention to one's diet through the use of outlandish circumstances set in an alternative environment.
" My number one goal is to raise awareness and expose factory farming. We have came to a point in which eating meat is no longer a necessity, it's our duty to put an end to animal suffering. Going or trying veganism will save our planet and all the species that inhabit it. "
–– Richard Jackson, Writer/Director
Through our situational imagery, we plan to evoke a visceral emotional response that serves our viewers the next time you meal prep or head to the grocery store.

With 3 days of production, this project requires attention and planning as well as funding from awesome people like you.
Thankfully enough, and with your help, this project can be fully funded if we reach our goal of $3,000. Your contribution is no joke. Our producers take incredible care of what we have to spend, and why we're spending it.
Locations, permits, props, wardrobe, transportation, and food adds up. With an incredible crew of friends willing to help us pro-bono, and the generosity of Loyola Marymount University's equipment and insurance, this project has been made possible for a fraction of what it costs independent filmmakers for production.
With that in mind, we still humbly ask for your help, yet we don't want you to leave empty handed. We offer different perks, which you can view on the right side of your screen as a thank you for your contribution.

My name is Samantha D’Amico and I’m a second year Writing and Producing Graduate Student at Loyola Marymount University. I’m originally from Delaware and while I loved growing up there, I always knew I wasn’t suppose to live out my life there. In college I was studying to become a doctor, but after some reflection I realized that I was more obsessed with television than medicine. It was more than an obsession but a calling. So I changed my major, applied to graduate school, and now I’m an intern at CBS Television Network beginning the dream.
