    "Roll Call - State of Electronics" is my latest Preview release of my upcoming documentary about the History and "State" of the Electronics Industry in Australia. Although it is very much centred around the Australian Electronics Industry, I think much of it will not only sound familiar to people in other parts of the world but resonate loudly with them. In this Preview entitled "Roll Call", the Cast from my documentary have the opportunity to introduce themselves and tell us a bit about what they do. It's not meant to be a traditional trailer but rather "Extra Material" that will not appear in the final documentary. As usual, please go to my website for more information on the project at www.karlvonmoller.com I wish to take this opportunity to personally thank all the contributors.

      After several months of researching, interviewing and filming, I'm excited to present the first public Trailer to my new Documentary "State of Electronics" - A discussion on the Electronics Industry in Australia. Even though the documentary is focused on Australian Electronics Design and Manufacture, much of it applies to all countries from around the world. The discussion is focused initially on the world of Hobby Electronics and how it's decline could effect the Electronics Industry in the future. The Documentary then discusses many issues that face industry including the issue of "Repair and Recycle", "Education", "Surface Mount Technology", "Globalisation", "Opportunities" and many many more off the cuff & candid comments from Industry professionals. The Documentary features interviews with famous Australians and Industry professionals including Dick Smith, Dave L Jones, Doug Ford, Leo Simpson, Grant Petty, Matthew Pryor, Jonathan Oxer, Andy Gelme, Andrew Griffiths, Eugene Ruffolo & Bill Petreski. In the future, I am planning to interview just a few more before the final release of the Documentary soon. Please visit www.karlvonmoller.com for more on the progress and information on "State of Electronics" Shot completely on the Canon 5DMK2, using the Zoom H4N Audio recorder. Directed, Edited and shot by Karl von Moller, this version of the trailer is largely ungraded and only has an FCP sound mix applied. Music track is composed by Karl von Moller also. Enjoy!
