Here it is on his site, just click on the last one of the six and you may have to push the little button on the player next to the sound button on the bottom of the player once it starts to play it, took me a while to figure it out. I copied it to my desktop at first but if you hit that button on the player it works.

The sound was all weird on mine (must be something about the speed of my connection) but it looks great. Well done Alissa - hope it goes really well for you!

Thanks so much everyone. I couldnt wait to put the link up here and show
you all! I was anxious to see what you all thought about it!

Alissa, you must be so proud of yourself! I am so incredibly happy for you now that this message is going to go even further, way to go girl!

Cool commercial! I loved how it showed the yummy raw food in the background. And Alissa, your hair looks amazing!
This is an exciting time!
What a great spot who did this for you ? And your hair looks great !

1) Ok, first, Lunawitch, i thought you were kidding when you wrote that and then i looked back at my post and realized i didnt write anything about my hair, but... this was a major source of stress!!!
First off, my hair is wild and curly and crazy, so i went in with it washed and nothing in it thinking that the women who was doing it would have a fresh base, well, when she saw my frizzy curly unruly main i saw her face go white, LOL! so she starts putting smoother in it, patting it down, had no idea what to do. i said, 'ok, you poor thing, lets wet it down and start over', but instead of taking a flat iron and then curling it she tried to do it with the frizz and all and just make curly locks, anyway, it was a slight nightmare, but we finally got it to behave. that was my biggest thing though, i showed this to friends and they said, 'wow, it looks conservative but perfect for the shoot and it looks like you planned it'. So its so funny you mentioned it so
THANK YOU! LOL!!!
Funny thats the toughest part for me. Im not a girly girl in that way. Shopping for clothing was another nightmare, I hate clothes shopping more then anything! I get weird if im in a mall more then ½ hour, lol. Then I confused myself even more because its one thing to have to pick out clothing that suits you but I was trying to shop for things that looked good on me but werent my normal taste _cut off jeans and a funky top- but more conservative or appealing for TV.
HA! Its funny that this was the hardest part for me. Being in front of the camera was the fun part!
2) Well Doug this amazingly talented guy and his wife did this for me. I was supposed to edit with them but he ended up staying up till 2:30 in the morning that night doing all the graphics and everything and the whole next morning before I came over so that when I arrived the next day it was perfect!!!!
They did this because they believe in me and wanted to help me get this message out. He is the greatest person and I am so very grateful for his talent, love, time and energy on this.
Funny, he has the same name as you :p

Hey Alissa! Your hair looks great! LOL! First thing I noticed, actually because I'm a curly girl myself!
Oh, good video too, tee hee. Wish it was longer.
05-30-2005, 12:22 PM
It looks great! (Including the hair). :) Was it a conscious decision not to use the word "raw" at all in the commercial? Bc if I wasn't hip to the term "live food" I might not know that you were talking about when viewing the commericial. In other words, does your typical SAD person know that "live food" means "raw food?"
05-30-2005, 03:08 PM
Well I have such a slow connection out here in the country that I couldn't get it to work. I'm glad it went well for you, Alissa, and I can't wait for you to get your infomercial done, too.
When and where will the commercial air on television?
05-30-2005, 05:10 PM
Your 30-second commercial spot looks great in spite of the fact that I don't know what you are saying. Sigh! Do you have a transcript available for those who are either deaf or hard of hearing? Please note that it is the main reason as to why I didn't get your DVDs in the first place. There is, no offense intended, no sense to get your DVDs if they are not captioned. I still have your worderful book and use it religiously. In any rate, you should be proud of yourself with your recent project.
I am looking forward to your cameo appearance on Channel 56 when you come to Boston on June 2nd. Is it still scheduled between 10:00 and 11:00 PM on that day?
05-30-2005, 05:23 PM
It looks great! (I saved a copy on my hard drive and it played in Windows Media Player, maybe that would help some who are having trouble getting it to play?)
Any idea if/when we might see it on TV?
05-30-2005, 05:46 PM

Thanks for taking the time to do a transcription for my benefit. Now I can fully appreciate Alissa's commercial spot even more.
I am so grateful to be associated with wonderful people like yourself!
Have a RAWSOME evening!

Do we know where this is going to air yet?
05-30-2005, 11:08 PM
i dont have air time yet. Im going to Boston this week to speak with an old friend who runs an infomercial business and a distribution and fulfillment center. i will then buy the air time ,set up a call center and go from there.
Ill post the channels as they begin to air. we are ordering more books as well that will take about a month and a half to get so i cant really air it before then as we are flying threw the first batch.
Alison, you'll have to find a fast connection somewhere since youre in it!!!
You need to see it, ill burn you a disk...
Swing bolder, yes it was a conscious decision. i dont think anyone would get what raw is either and there is a lot i wanted to explain but 60 seconds goes by very quickly! So although we had some more lines i had to edit them.
There where a few things i really wanted to leave in, but without being able to explain them it would have confused people and they really wouldnt know what i was talking about. raw (to me at least) can be a bit harsh sounding if you dont get what it means in terms of this diet i think. so living and live sound a bit more harmonies and less intimidating. Im looking forward to doing an infomercial were i can really educate people about WHAT this is!
Vegan vixen - nice touch, ill have to hire you as my teleprompter women!
(the one who feeds the lines into the camera to read)

I loved the foods being shown in the background! I'm hungry now! :D
I hope to see it on tv real soon! Thank you for doing this!

Do you know when this will air and where?
06-11-2005, 10:24 PM
I like the spot Alissa. I was in broadcasting for many years...the only comment i have is that you dont seem to be talking to the camera..... were you reading a teleprompter? Your eyes dont seem to be looking dead on.
Showing the book and the pictures of all the great food is good sell. I think this spot will do the trick.... you have alot to offer and your appearance shows it as well as the wonderful pictures.
It should do well.
Good luck with it.

Any news yet on when and where this will air?
