Hi Skadi,

Thank you for the reply.  I'm new to the film festival research network, so
first I would like to say thank you for the opportunity.  I've been in the
indie film industry for a young five years now, and launched my company,
Dedric Entertainment Group, Inc in July 2012, as a newly developed,
grassroots indie film sales & marketing start up.

The focus of the data will be used to analyze profit strategies, trends and
best practices used as they relate to festival sustainability and long term
revenue potential. Being a for profit company, my intentions with the data
is to advance development of a secondary profit strategy that can be
offered to festivals as an alternative to their primary revenue options.

I would like to say as well that if this request is considered in any way,
to be a flagrant use of the network's resources and a mistrust of its
active members, that is in no way, my intent and my request for the data
can be disregarded.

I truly am thankful for the opportunity and I look to learn more.

Best wishes and regards,

Seilas Phillips
DEG, Inc.
