Da Silva also founded Velatropa Films for his purposes of making his directorial debut, having studied at the Raindance Film School in London. The film he is working on, EARTH 2.0, promises to be "...the most memorable documentary ever made and will break all the rules of documentary filmmaking." We await this exciting film.
Dr. Hackney is a pioneer in "community architecture." If our readers are not certain what this means, we will define it. According to a document titled Practice of Community Architecture: A Case Study of Zone of Opportunity Housing Cooperative, defines community architecture,
The definition of the word “housing” as a noun as compared to a verb, as presented by John F. C. Turner in his article, “Housing as a Verb,” explains the difference between two alternate approaches of meeting housing demands the world over where housing is either seen as a product or a process respectively. When housing is seen as a product, then it is also treated like a commodity where all the emphasis is on its physical attributes. On the other hand, when housing is approached as a process, it is an activity, which corresponds to both psychological and physical needs of its inhabitants (Turner, Freedom 151, 152). This definition of housing as a process with both social and material benefits for the community as presented by Turner forms the basis of my research report.Mr. Da Silva has associated his film with very talented people like Dr. Kansara. Kansara is an accomplished singer as well as a researcher and activist, who professionally sings in Hindi. We cite a video she made in tribute to the victims of the Fukushima earthquake victims in Japan. If you cannot see the embedded video, here is the link: http://youtu.be/Ey3dPlxOcb0.

One of the most famous recent examples of animals sensing an earthquake several hours before humans was the Indian Ocean tsunami event of 26th December 2004. Despite the fact that the Yala National Park in Sri Lanka was home to several hundred wild animals including elephants, leopards and monkeys, no mass animal deaths were caused by the tsunami. Eyewitnesses reported flamingos abandoning their low-lying breeding areas, zoo animals rushing into their shelters and refusing to come out and elephants screaming and running for higher ground. 150,000 people were killed by the Boxing Day disaster, including 60 visitors at the Yala National Park, yet virtually no wild animals deaths were reported.

With all these distinguished people working together, as well as many others, we have every reason to believe that Da Silva's film when it does come out, will have a great impact on the mindset of the public.
