Very interesting website Yanky. I like the look. I wasn't able to watch the trailer but I think that's my issue.

Thanks Joe.
The site is simple, but effective. It has that antique style which works well with the film.
You can see more of what we do, including a rather aggressive archival restoration project, at

Um, Ben, maybe you'll calm down when you realize the Moviemaker list is alphabetical.

Meanwhile, welcome, Yanky.

I didn't actually see the list, it was John Mounier who told me about it. But hey, people do find us this way!

So who else is out there?

I saw the Moviemaker article in Nina's office last week. It was a really stupid description of The D-Word. Something like "MySpace for documentary filmmakers." Where do they come up with that stuff?

We're going to shoot a doc in LA in january. The team is just two people, a small camera and no fixed locations (we're travelling with a guy). HOw would I get a permit for this? How do you guys do this in LA (or USA for that matter). Is there a small team permit or a documentary permit or should I just shoot without a permit? Any answers are welcome.
