    In March 2010 Kurt Hemmer, an English professor from Chicago, flew to Guyana to see his friends Doodnauth Singh and Basil Rodrigues. The last time they had been together was at a writer's institute in 1994. Hemmer brought a flip camera to record the reunion.

        This is distilled version of a 44 minute documentary which examines the copyright legislation in Guyana, South America, told through the voices of a handful of local artists, musicians and creatives. In Guyana, the copyright legislation has not been updated since 1956. As a result, many modern day intellectual assets (music, video, software development) are not described or identified within the act; and it is within this context that these creatives look at how the lack of such protection affects them as they look towards their future. This film is a personal project produced over the space of approximately 10 months. The feature was released on December 16, 2013, and the short on June 19, 2014. I decided to make the short version of the film, when I realized that many people were not getting through the three parts of the 44 minute film online and the message was getting lost. Most of the footage was shot specifically for this film, but additional photography and video footage was provided some of the contributors and by Wildfire Productions (Guyana). Jonathan Beepat out of Wildfire Productions (Guyana) was a great help and encouragement - I do not think this film would have been possible without him. The production gear was comprised of four cameras; Canon 7D, a Canon 60D, a Canon HD Vixia HG21 and a GoPro HD Hero 2. The DSLRs were accompanied by a few lenses (Canon 24mm - 105mm f/4, Canon 18mm - 135mm f/3.5 - 5.6, Canon 55mm - 250mm f/5.6 and a Canon 50mm f/1.8, Canon 50mm f/1.4). For sound recording I used a Zoom H4N sound recorder and a pair of microphones (a shotgun and a lavalier). Where possible i used some studio lights, some LED lights, lighting stands and a pair of Manfrotto tripods. Post production was done using Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and happened simultaneously with shooting.

                  Costa, makers of the clearest & raddest fishing sunglasses on the planet, asked us to tell the amazing story of their work in Guyana. The sport fishing industry relies on conservation, and they've jumped in with both feet. We took inspiration from the art, colours, and music of Guyana to create this mixed perspective tour of the jungle, and the wildlife that live there. Voiced by the hunky John Corbett.
