Subject:      Tempest - Request for Advice

Hello-

This is an unusual request, I hope not outside the spectrum of this list. Some of you followed our year-long weekly blog on the development of our puppet staging of THE TEMPEST. We've now published a 107-minute DVD of the full production. You can see a ten-minute sampler on our website at http://www.independenteye.org/media.html .

I'm assuming it's not quite kosher to promote sale items on this site, but I'm asking for some guidance, as you're probably the largest available concentration of kindred spirits in Shakespeare. Can you offer any advice on the best means of reaching teachers or other interested souls with information about this DVD? Websites, print or on-line journals, distributors that you look to for Shakespeare-related materials? Years ago, we did some distribution of a video of our puppet MACBETH through Tanya Gough's agency, but that no longer exists, and I wonder if there's anything similar?

Any thoughts you might offer would be most appreciated -- can reply privately to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , if it's not of broad interest to the list. I'm intensely proud of this piece, feel it's an absolutely unique resource, want to get it out there, but my Ph.D. didn't cover the art of promoting DVDs.

Peace & joy-

PS: Dr. Leon Katz, Emeritus Professor of Drama, Yale University, wrote of it: "Beautiful! Lo and behold, everything I anticipated. Many, many sides of it impressed me enormously. This is splendid work."
