I've got the documentary movie file to the DVD making firm. Should have the final proofs of the jacket within a few days. They're encoding it for the DVD right now, I just approved the layout for the chapter headings, looks real nice. Turnaround is 2-3 weeks from approval, so it looks like mid-November or a bit later. Also sent in an ad for the DVD to a gun magazine, and they want some tinkering with it (no word back yet on details).
In between all this, doing legal work to keep the wolf from the door.
Pretty tired, but it is coming together. After nearly four years of work (filming started in January 2003), it's about time.
The finished product is an hour and 51 minutes. It'll have twelve or thirteen professors of law, plus Dave Kopel, Steve Halbrook, Don Kates and Clayton Cramer. It covers the how the 2nd amendment was rediscovered by academia, history of the English right, the revolution and framing period, early commentators, the black experience and the 14th Amendment, and present relevance of the right (self-defense, genocide, political, etc.).
I've had some folks say 1:51 is too long, and some say no problem. Too late to change it, but what do you readers think on that?
