Tonight I found out someone had finished their trailer of a copyright documentary. I was devastated... until I saw it. It was nothing in comparision to ours. Nothing!

So, Again, I slowly truck along. Nate and Emmett have been very patient and working hard but after I read this comment by someone on that "other documentary producer" site, I thought, HEY, I WISH!

This is what the person wrote:

"I just got a truly inspiring idea from this short preview clip:

If you're a filmmaker making a documentary about free culture, instead of just going out and interviewing the "Lessigs" ('The Pear Shaped Men' as Larry would say), and adding remixed public domain/copylefted footage to illustrate the narrative...

Invite the world to submit original and remixed material for the documentary.

That, That, would truly be in the spirit of free culture. You'd be pleasantly suprised at what people would sumbit. Don't just do what everyone up to this point does when they document the emerging culture libré. Don't just interview Stallman and Lessig and fawn over Dangermouse. Invite the next Dangermouse to come out of the woodwork."

I want to be pleasantly SURPRISED!!!!!!
