For the attention of Professor Michael Petros.
Yes, a great deal of filming has already taken place. We have over 90
hours of material
which was shot all the way from the Holy Land to Rhode Island and most
places in between.
We have filmed on land, on sea and from the air.
Currently, there is a film being made by Greystone Films, North Holywood.
Herz 818 762 2900 x 239 and, in Canada, you should contact Bob Hutt of
Films on 902 689 2638.
All my footage is in Canada on N.T.S.C. Betacam and, if your work is purely
purposes, I could authorise your use of the material.
We will also be making 3 x Templar fIlms in this country.
I agree that an important episode in American history should be more widely
