Cruelty Free is a documentary that follows Holly and Keller, a dog owner and her puppy, through the mysterious world of animal testing, and why we still test on animals today.
This documentary would not be where it is today without the hard work from each of our amazing and talented crew members.
Hey guys! My name is Ashlee Bishop and I am the director of Cruelty Free and super excited for this doc!! A few responsibilities as a director are visualizing the script while guiding the technical crew and interviewees in the fulfillment of that vision. I began researching about cruelty free companies and products a couple years ago and ever since then I have wanted to create something to voice my opinion. I am very passionate about this topic and I can’t wait to show you guys that we can eliminate animal testing one step at a time!
