Mattew, Yes, we wish to come to Devon and Cornwall to document cob before Christmas, and we can unite on this trip. Please send me a brief overview of your studies including visuals in the form of jpegs to add to our communication. This is a high quality arts video as we are planning to enter this video into international film festivals. This exposure will be far reaching. We should include your center into this project so please send me what information you can, including a web site address. We are producing a series of stand alone productions working toward a full feature film using organic architecture for sets in a period piece presenting the Art Nouveau movement, circa early 1900's, Europe with Robin Gergough as the leading character. This film will be known as "Wormwood". Produced by ArtNouveau Productions.
