I, Rob Lehr (the tall bald guy) am "Hambone Productions".
Our film was the opening event for Skepticon 4. It essentially showcases our journey to find out what is our responsibility to the poor and also examine the causes and solutions to extreme poverty.
I am an atheist/skeptic and my two friends are both Christians.
We are currently touring the country showing our film at colleges and churches as well as participating in the international film festival circuit.

Give a Damn?
"As decent people, we'd like to think we all give a damn about Africa's poverty. But this country — hell, this city — has plenty of problems of its own, so why should we give a damn about the problems of a far-flung continent so far removed from our day-to-day lives? And with that question, a trio of friends — including a "God will provide" Christian fundamentalist and a "fuck that shit" atheist — set out, Africa-bound, from St. Louis (but not before plenty of pensive shots taken around the Arch and Saint Louis Bread Co.). They pledge to live on $1.25 a day (not counting transportation), like an estimated 20 percent of the world's population does. Along the way they meet with scholars, activists and pastors who provide some sociological context before they finally live among the people themselves: walking feces-strewn streets, eating dirt, partaking in ebullient church services and experiencing a horrifying event that shakes the project to its core. It's a call to action, and one that viewers will want to answer."
