Thank you for such a detailed analysis of the it2i2 project, and I have to agree with much of what you said. It does actually run for 43 minutes, but I totally agree, it isn't long enough and you listed the reasons this was the way it turned out. However, I have heard from many people who bought the DVD that they really enjoyed it, some even found the ideas we tried to explore thought provoking and worrying. One of the things we said all the way through the production was 'Oh, I just wish we had a budget, then we could do blah blah.' However, for a £6000 budget I do feel we did a pretty good job. As for the extras, although also shot for zilch and produced very cheaply, I think they are worth watching, the interview with Prof Warwick in particular was really interesting. We would all love to make it2i2.2, but I have held back until something comes of this one, and I can raise the finance to make it 'properly' and pay the people who work on it properly, (everyone got paid, just not very much) Also, since the sudden arrival of the You Tube phenomenon, we would now make it in a very different way, maybe releasing parts of the show early to build up a bit of interest. However, I'm really sorry you didn't think it was long enough, and I don't think I ever called it a 'movie' because it clearly isn't that, it's a 'show' that's been shot on video and released independently. I did put my heart and soul into it as you stated and worked very hard to make it, as did many other people, and all I wish is that a few more people could see it. One day .
