Slipknot percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan has revealed that he plans to make a documentary on eating disorders, according to Blabbermouth. Crahan posted a message online in which he first notes that he has produced documentaries for every Slipknot album, as well an upcoming one on the House Of Shock haunted house attraction in New Orleans. He then states, "Making these documentaries has ignited a passion in me to continue using this medium to get at the truth behind the mask, to expose the pain and the beauty hidden behind the facades we like to hide behind."
Next he adds, "What I am going to ask for next may be difficult for some of you to contemplate but I ask that you keep an open mind and to think about what an experience like this might have meant to you had it been available when you began your journey. I am looking for the following for my next documentary project:
* A man and/or a woman at least 30 years of age who has been diagnosed with anorexia, bulimia, and/or any other eating disorder or any combination thereof.
* A man and/or a woman between the ages of 18 and 30 years of age who has been diagnosed with anorexia, bulimia, and/or any other eating disorder or any combination thereof.
* A man and/or a woman under the age of 18 years of age who has been diagnosed with anorexia, bulimia, and/or any other eating disorder or any combination thereof."
He continues, "Why eating disorders? My path through life has brought me into contact with a number of women and men suffering from these terrible diseases and I feel compelled to do what I can to help."
Crahan concludes by saying that anyone interested in having their story filmed can contact him firstname.lastname@example.org, with all responses kept completely confidential.
A founding member of Slipknot, Crahan has previously directed the band DVDs Disasterpieces,Voliminal: Inside The Nine, Of The (sic), and (sic)nesses: Live At Download. He has also directed a number of the band's videos.
Crahan told us a while back how he goes about putting together the pieces for the band's DVDs: "I look for the thing that makes me taste and smell and gets me excited, you know. I look for those things to start it off, and once I have a few of those, then I get going. And then the plot goes from there."
Slipknot plays at the Download Festival in the U.K. this Friday (June 14th).
