LOVE Bra and Turin. We stayed there for the Slow Food Festival in '06. Can't wait to get back.

Heading over to Marketing and Distribution for an update on PoP? What was the back and forth?

You could do a search. But the idea of alternative titles was asked about and then batted around.

ah, I see Doug, you hate our title. ;-)
I'll switch this over to marketing, but as we brand our film now for theatrical, what would happen if we change the title....

Hi, my name is Stephan and I'm a freelance filmmaker, I work mainly for BBC departments, making films for internal use. For example, this year I directed a series looking at critical thinking and how programme makers and journalists can make better use of philosophy to tackle various issues such as the way we report science, or deal with value, and even talk about the future. Currently I'm working on a film about a photographer who has embarked on a project to photograph electricity pylons. There's a clip here – http://www.vimeo.com/5083013 – We're hoping to submit it to festivals next year. I've joined because there are some interesting conversations here, and because it could be a good place to sound out a problems and issues that naturally crop up in this work. Nice to meet you all, look forward to joining in.

Hi Stephan, you have bumped into a good place and I'm sure the powers that be will advise you come inside properly, however you must stop using auto focus.
