As many of you know we have been working on a follow up film to The Business of Being Born, to be released this fall. We are deep into the editing now and are hoping some of you might help us out by sharing your personal birth footage and photos. Specifically, we are looking for:
1. Homebirth video footage
2. Birth video footage from anyone who had a VBAC.
3. Video of a sonogram
4. Photos of women recovering post-birth, looking especially unhappy or suffering.
5. Video footage of a free-standing birth center (exterior & interior)
6. NICU footage
If you have any of the below materials and would be willing to let us use them in the film, please fill out and sign the attached release form and mail us your footage by August 15, 2009 on DVD, mini DV, DVCam or any format you have, to the address below. Please do not send us your only copy as we will not be able to return the copy you send us. If you have photos (for item #4) or any questions you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mail footage with a brief description and the release form to:
Business of Birth
15 W 11th St #3A
NY, NY 10011
Please note we will blur out faces of any doctors, birth attendants or people in the footage from whom we do not have approval.
Thanks for your help!
Warmly, Ricki & Abby
