I saw an early cut of Prodigal Sons about 6 months ago and, while it needed more work, it's an utterly fascinating (very!) personal story. I hear Kim's put narration in so can't wait to see it again.

Yes, it's an incredible story with many twists and turns, and it will benefit from the input of DocuClub's smart and dedicated audience.

Hello again. As i said on my "introduce yourself" post, I'm available for composing original music for interesting documentaries.
Some of my work can be heard on my website at http://www.marioberlinguer.com.

I have a myspace page with some more music, and then another page on NextCat with a couple different things.

Best way to contact me is at "info" and then the @ and then "marioberlinguer.com" (without the " of course).

Thanks and keep up with the good work!

I am interested in advice on how to find right person (film maker) and fund a small documentary style effort and what might be interesting goals / benefits that makes it a win/win for company and film producer. Budget would likely be shoestring, but could be an interesting experience.

Example situation:
Say you have a big event every year like MacWorld (AppleWorld) or an auto show (but put on by only one company, not a tradeshow)... you show off your latest products, you launch 2 or 3 new things, and you show a vision of where your company is going (concept cars, or other physical immersive manifestations). You have to entice the media and your top customers to attend and you want to broadcast and create discussion around all 3 parts of this event experience...

I am exploring how a highly experiential event with similar attributes could leverage film/documentary storytelling in interesting, meaningful ways – meaningful to the company, its stakeholders, and the film maker...

Some nice to have goals for company might be:
+ capture people's reactions around new product innovation at large/major event in Eastern Europe (new product concepts around several themes, dramatic event experience in major city, new products being launched, other interesting products being demonstrated/show for sales in both business to business and business to consumer arena)
+ capture value design is adding to business
+ possible interviews with CEO/CMOs from top companies
+ many other areas that could be mutually interesting if discussed... but trying to understand if this might be interesting to a qualified independent film maker or high potential starting out

There could be two cuts... both would likely be very people-focused. But, one could capture essence of business value and the other could be all around creative/design side of things.
