Email: From National Film Board Of Canada

Yesterday I wrote the National Film Board Of Canada and they kindly responded to me today. It is a rather bureaucratic reply, but it was still nice of them to try and help a naive newby film maker like myself.

They sent me several links which I will check out more thoroughly tonight during my security night shift. I thought I would share the email here on the blog, hopefully others can benefit from the links provided.
