In commenting about activism and his work in film at this stage of his life, professor and filmmaker David Scheerer said, "I not only have a sense of mastery of the medium to a degree - I'll never master it, but I'm better than I was 20 years ago, but I also have an understanding that I can tell these messages and be blunt and direct.
Time is of the essence. As I age, I realize that I don't have as many days on my calendar as I did when I was 20. So I'm a little more passionate about it, not waiting around and hoping things come together. I'm more involved in bringing about the change." David has scripted, produced, and directed a wide range of films, including his latest entitled Locally Grown: America's Food Revolution.
