GSD representation requested

So far, response to "People of the Rock: The Llanitos of Gibraltar" has been excellent! Tons of people have written emails and commented on the video at various websites, and the film has been embedded in web pages featuring information about Gibraltar's politics and culture.

The only issue that Llanitos seem to be having with this film is the lack of representation from the GSD party (namely Peter Caruana). In the works is an updated version of this film, featuring statements and interviews from the GSD, though I also lack funding to return to Gibraltar to perform live video interviews.

If anyone in Gibraltar or AndalucĂ­a would like to be involved, pro bono (this is a not-for-profit film), and interview any members of the GSD, especially during the upcoming Gibraltar National Day on September 10, I would be able to include segments of that interview in the next version of the documentary. If any interested parties read this, please contact me for details. Interviews could be performed on video, or be audio-only.

The next version of this film should be released in December, and will include a new narration (the current version was narrated between 3-5am after weeks without much sleep, and it shows), statements from the GSD (whether recorded for this film or onscreen text of public statements), and an improved introduction, among other minor editorial tweaks.
