Sanguinarian Vampires Sought For Showtime Documentary Series

BloodLustVampire Community News (VCN) is passing this media solicitation along to those who may be interested in participating:


Dear Vampire Community and Friends;

A NYC-based, award-winning documentary, film and TV production company is currently seeking a sanguinarian (sang) vampire to tell his or her personal story for a fascinating new documentary TV series for Showtime.

Our docu-series will be a visually stunning, intelligent and true documentary-style show, NOT a reality TV show. It will be looking at numerous manifestations of the concept of “lust” in modern day life. Each segment will feature a different story, told by the person living it.

This specific segment will tell the story of the “lust for blood”, told through his or her own eyes. If you are someone who has thirsted for blood all your life, and identifies as a blood-drinker or sanguinarian, feel free to contact us at: sevenlyproductionscasting@gmail.com

We are seeking anyone – male, female or other – living in the United States. We will be filming one person and their story for approximately 2 days in late January or early February 2014.

Thank you and we looking forward to hearing from you!

Best,

Sevenly Productions Casting Team

Vampire Community Reformation Questionnaire – The Responses

HieronymusBosch-TheLastJudgment1486Vampire Community Reformation Questionnaire

Web/Text & PDF Versions Of The Responses:
http://www.veritasvosliberabit.com/projects/reformationsurvey.html

The purpose of this questionnaire is to objectively evaluate the current state of the Vampire Community through the process of a candid disclosure of perceived problems and to examine the individual needs of self-identified real vampi(y)res and how to best address them.

Responses were collected by Merticus of the VVC on November 24, 2013 and made publicly available to the vampire community on November 25, 2013. The responses to this questionnaire were solicited from dozens of ‘real vampire’ related websites, groups, forums, mailing lists, and social media outlets and do not necessarily represent the views of the VVC or its members.

Discussion Agenda:

a. Examining The Prevailing Dogma Of The Vampire Community – A Three-Part Question: Has the vampire community become too rigidly dogmatic for dialogue? Various groups believe they each know ‘the truth’ or ‘what real vampires are all about’ and react to conflicting views with ridicule, sneering, dismissing contrary views, or instantly claiming that they are being criticized or even victimized.  If yes, why do you believe as a community we have become increasingly intolerant of diverse points of view?  Is it possible to allow for less rigid dogma and discussions while remaining respectful of each other’s beliefs or opinions?

b. Realistic Expectations Of Attempting To Protect The Vulnerable – A Four-Part Question: For many years we have debated whether, and how, to protect new or vulnerable participants of the vampire community from leaders or groups that are perceived (by some) to be unethical, abusive, or disseminating misinformation. Thus far, we have been unable to collectively agree on which leaders or groups are ‘bad’ and what to do about them.  Are we realistically able to protect others from their own naiveté, wishful thinking, or ardent stupidity?  When does trying to ‘police’ such a diverse and unfocused grouping of participants as the vampire community simply create more divisions and negativity?  Is there a more productive use of our time?  If so, what is it and how should we best arrive there?

c. Searching For Answers & Aging Out Of The Vampire Community – A Three-Part Question: Have you noticed a steady decline in individuals searching for guidance about real vampirism since the mid 2000s?  In essence, have organized vampire groups become the gatekeepers of the existing quality information on vampirism rather than pathfinders of new ideas and explorations into real vampirism?  Does anyone ever permanently ‘age out’ of the vampire community or do they merely step into the shadows while tending to personal matters or pursue their personal vampirism in private?

d. Our Evolving Relationship With The Media – A Four-Part Question: What, if any, changes have you noticed by those who are in the public eye as related to what the media is seeking from vampires they interview?  Has television media altered their desire for a particular style of dress, behavior, or backdrop when filming?  Is the media across various mediums beginning to allow review and revision of the footage or articles prior to airing or publication?  How has this changed, or not, in the past several years compared with a decade or more ago?

e. Critically Evaluating How We Appear To The Outside World: A Three-Part Question: Do you believe the vampire community is serious enough about how it appears to the outside world?  Many participants in the vampire community complain about documentaries, interviews and other depictions of real vampires that highlight the melodramatic and colorful participants of our community. However, many of these same individuals embellish their social media profile pages with lurid art, photos of themselves with fangs and bloody mouths, black capes and heavy make-up, and with other macabre or grim materials.  Is it possible for us to be horror-centric, embracing of the fantastical, or Goth theatrical ‘for fun or lifestyle’ and expect the media or the general public to be able to differentiate, understand, or ultimately accept us as harmless?  Is such a notion realistic, or even fair?

Abstract:

Social workers are obligated to embrace human diversity, challenge social injustice, and work to empower vulnerable populations. Two separate, but somewhat related, law-abiding populations that remain hidden due to legitimate fears of marginalization and oppression, including among social workers, are the BDSM and real vampire communities. In an effort to educate social workers who likely will encounter (whether knowingly or not) individuals with BDSM or vampire identities, this article discusses current scholarly literature on these communities and their practices. Suggestions for empowering people who practice BDSM or vampirism are also provided.

Les travailleurs sociaux ont le devoir de tenir compte de la diversité humaine, de s’attaquer à l’injustice sociale et d’aider les populations vulnérables à se prendre en charge. Deux populations respectueuses des lois, distinctes bien qu’elles aient des caractéristiques communes, vivent dans la clandestinité en raison d’une peur légitime d’être marginalisées et opprimées, notamment par des travailleurs sociaux; il s’agit en l’occurrence la communauté BDSM et celle de vrais vampires. Voulant éduquer les travailleurs sociaux qui (qu’ils en soient conscients ou non) vont vraisemblablement venir en contact avec des personnes dont l’identité est liée au BDSM ou au vampirisme, cet article se penche sur la littérature savante relative à ces communautés et leurs pratiques. On y présente aussi quelques suggestions quant à certains moyens pouvant permettre aux personnes qui s’adonnent au BDSM ou au vampirisme de se prendre en charge.
