Thanks for making me look like an alcoholic in a public topic, James...

You take over with trying to get the lurkers out of the shadows, please.

What if the topic had a less public reach? I'll vouch that you are not an alcoholic in a public topic, Ben, and we can all juice with Kurt any old time.

Hi everyone! Sorry for the delay!
Yes, 30 something refers to age. Our characters are 10, which is a much more reasonable number, I guess!
Our generation of 30 something here in Greece has a difficult task. We grew up believing that things will only get better, at least on the financial front. Unfortunately, for the last few years the financial situation is grim and no one can be sure what will come out of it. In a country run mostly my 50 or 60 something old politicians, who have more than their share for the current situation and still try to convince us that they also have the solution, we decided it was time for our generation to speak up. Because at 30 we are no longer kids, that's for sure. Let's hope we get our message across!

Good luck Christina! Sounds like an interesting project for a just cause.

You don't want to make a revolution like the Arabs are doing? ;)

Christina, I happen to have a number of friends in Greece all of whom are in their 30-somethings, and I my feeling is that you're telling a very important story here.

Thank you very much guys! Let's hope it works out well! I'll keep you posted.
Niam, I am not sure Greece is ready for a revolution yet! What we need is a major change in our way of thinking! Hopefully in a few months I will be able to say that at least young people have started that process.

Hello! My name is Stephen Troy, I'm a young filmmaker who recently created his first feature, a documentary titled Dale and the Duds. Now, as I prepare to sell it and send it to festivals, I am faced with many many questions that I cannot find answers to. Mostly about legal issues. This is a problem that I must deal with! So I have signed up for this site, hoping to get some answers.

My website is:

Hi. Am new here. We are finishing up GLOBAL WARNING. A filmmaker's journey into war. We are looking for a sales agent who can help us with it. Any leads kindly appreciated.

Why are societies predisposed to war? And why are completely unrelated wars fatally similar in their making? These questions are on Global Warning's agenda as director Ernst Gossner inquires into his native Tirol's own last war – the war between Austria and Italy on top of Tirol's mountains a hundred years ago. What at first seems like just one more episode of WWI slowly reveals its relevance towards present events, and the grand tragedy of war in general.
