Why make this film?
Everywhere we look, we see big business interests corrupting the truth and affecting millions of lives. We see that in the food industry, healthcare, government, and now with alternatives to smoking. With nearly unlimited funds, the big money always seems to drown out the truth when it suits them.
As filmmakers, it’s our job to tell stories that need telling, give voices to the voiceless, and make our world a better place. It’s not every day that filmmakers get to tell a story that can change the lives of hundreds of millions of people around the world. With A Billion Lives, we have that chance and we’re not going to waste it.
We’re putting everything we have into making this the defining film for an entire generation and helping end the grip smoking has on over a billion people.

Although we have a long history of producing short films for community-focused organizations like City Year (Americorps), Pathways to College, Atonement, and more, this community-focused film is a for-profit venture being produced by Attention Era Media, a film production company based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We have received no funding from any outside companies or organizations for this film, although that may change as we finish it and move into distribution. If you’re interested in partnering on bringing this film to the world, we’d be interested in speaking. Please contact us today.
