A New Way to Fight Kidnapping in China

1 comment

Hi all,

Thought I'd drop everyone a quick line to let you know about what's been going on in China the past few weeks, where the topic of our film has suddenly become a very hot topic thanks to a brand new way to rescue kids and fight kidnappers! I've written a post on ChinaGeeks about it, which you can read here at your convenience if you're interested:

(And yes, we've already contacted Yu Jianrong and will be working to set up an interview with him).

    All of the above, AND...the privilege of being informed about interviews before they happen. For each major interview, you may email the director one question which will be translated into Chinese and asked to the subject during the interview. The subject's answer may not make it into the final film, but you will receive access to the uncut footage. (note, in some cases where interview subjects are on a rushed timetable, this may not be possible)

    ALL of the above, AND...You get everything listed above, but instead of being listed under "thanks", you will receive an executive "producer" credit for the film. Should you ever visit Beijing, you'll get a free dinner out with the film's director, and a chance to meet some of the film's subjects (pending their consent, of course).
