A True Happy Meal

Buddha was not a vegetarian.

Folks, it's one thing for a cheapskate Assemblyman to use his campaign funds to glom Happy Meals off his campaign donors.  It is another to PAY for one's own meal.... and in the ACT of feasting on delicious, all-American fare make OTHER PEOPLE HAPPY.    

Buddha, Gandhi, Confucius, the Dalai Lama and other famous know-it-alls would agree: that's a true Happy Meal....

Paying for your own meal can bring HAPPINESS to others.  The instructions are simple: 
INSTRUCTIONS
(1) PRINT this flyer (see below)
(2) EAT at Johnny Rockets* (Hoboken or Newport Mall, JC)  *works for take-out, too
(3) SHOW FLYER when you pay check
WHEN:  
Wednesday, October 14, 3-8PM
Wednesday, October 21, 3-8PM
WHY:
20% of your check will be DONATED by Johnny Rockets to the filming of a feature-length film by Hoboken High School video production students being shot in Hoboken in the summer of 2016! 
FLYER: (PRINT NOW,  stick in your wallet!!!!)

About the project:
D. H. MacAulay, a video production teacher at Hoboken High School, and his students have produced short digital videos, commercials, music videos and current event videos. In 2004, he and students Ingrid Uribe and Jerri Siro won the NJ Young Film and Video Makers Festival, which is a part of New Jersey’s Black Maria. In 2010, his Hoboken Media Production class won a Telly award for a music video they shot and produced. This past spring, MacAulay’s advanced class Media Production 2, asked about creating a more ambitious production than a short film.  

Alumni from both HCST and Hoboken High School have been working with MacAulay to raise the $230K budgeted for this project. They have set up a Creative District listing, Gofundme page, and Facebook page for this project. ” 

MacAulay and his Director of Videography, John F. Cole (HCST Class of 2004), have started the “shooting script,” which adds shots and angles to the existing original screenplay, "In My Own Mind."  Dylan Irizarry has signed on as the Assistant Director. Current students and future graduates of the Class of 2016, Baltazar Gonzalez and Bryant Vega, are both the producers on the project, Arturo Liranzo is head camera operator, and William Ithier III is 2nd operator.

Plans are in motion to begin production on July 6, 2016 and wrap by August 15, 2016.
Please folks, indulge yourselves and your friends in a TRUE happy meal at Johnny Rockets next Wednesday (Oct. 14), 3-8PM, or the Wednesday after (Oct 21), 3-8PM.   

You will spread happiness to these young Hoboken artists. Aren't you proud of them?
