And We’re Back!

Hello there! After a brief hiatus, we’re back online. Our apologies for the down time, but there is lots of exciting news!

We wrapped two weeks of principal photography at the end of July and we got some incredible interviews in the can. We sat down with all kinds of exciting subjects, from Susan Crawford, of the Roosevelt institute, to Sascha Meinrath of the New America Foundation, and even Richard Clarke,  former member of the National Security Council. A full list of the folks we interviewed is on our website here.

We had a great time, conducted 17 interviews in 14 days, didn’t sleep much, and were only detained by the capitol police once! (This is apparently a rite of passage for filming politicians.) We shot over 50 hours of footage, and we’re going to start bringing out the behind the scenes action for our kickstarter backers (and anyone who purchases a pass on our media page, be sure to check it out!). We had some great times on set, and there are some awesome moments that we’re really excited to share with you.

In terms of the project, we’re in a great place. We just finished editing a promotional trailer that we’re using to raise additional funds to finish the project. We’ve been really excited about the feedback we’ve gotten, everyone loves it, and we can’t wait to share it with you.

But the Internet news hasn’t stopped. Quite the contrary, the situation is changing even more radically than it was. Check back for the latest news, but to keep your whistle wet, check out the latest from the New York Times on the power consumption of data centers! It’s pretty crazy how much electricity goes into powering the Internet.
