Dacula grads make tax documentary

LAWRENCEVILLE -- A documentary on income tax produced by two Dacula High School graduates was released earlier this month.

The film, "An Inconvenient Tax," can be viewed via cable, satellite, telco and online video on demand platforms reaching more than 50 million homes in North America, said Vincent Vittorio, a Lawrenceville resident who founded the film and television production company Life Is My Movie in 2001.

Additionally, a DVD of the video will be released by Amazon.com on July 4.

Vittorio said the company focuses on nonfiction stories. His production partner, Grayson resident Nathaniel Thomas McGill, was the director of photography for "An Inconvenient Tax."

"We wanted to tell a story that hasn't been attacked in the documentary world objectively," Vittorio said. "The FairTax is very big here (in Georgia). But this is not a FairTax movie. It's not a Republican movie. It's not a Democrat movie. It's a true documentary that focuses on an understanding of the tax code and how it has evolved into (what it is) today."

The documentary features interviews with several experts on tax policy as well as legislators. Although the topic may seem boring, Vittorio said the movie is "very educational but at the same time entertaining."

"We relate the tax code to a monster -- the monster that every April 15 comes and asks for its share," he said.

Vittorio said the documentary calls for tax reform. He said it's for anyone who is interested or concerned with politics or the economy.
