Distributor/Producers List on the Web

Hi all. Well, I've undertaken a new project (maybe ill-advised, maybe
not) which might interest videolib'ers and videonews'ers (apologies for
the duplicate posting, by the by): I've begun developing a list--very
rudimentary at this point--of video distributors/producers with which UCB
deals on a more or less regular basis. I'd eventually like to broaden the
list and to make it a useful tool for video folk nationally...

Obviously, it's not going to be either possible or desirable to include
EVERYONE on this list, but I think we can develop it into a useful core
of info. Take a look at the site:
http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/Distributors.html

I'm definitely willing to entertain additions or corrections to this
list, but I DO retain ultimate editorial control of it (what power!). If
there are concerns which should be listed, pls drop me (NOT the listserv)
email. I'd like to get information in the following format, if possible:

NAME OF COMPANY/INDIVIDUAL
STREET ADDRESS
CITY/ZIP
PHONE(S)
FAX
EMAIL
WEBSITE

I'm in the process of having a search engine scripted for the site, which
should make using it easier. I'm also gonna develop a form, which will
allow easier submission of new entries.

I understand that NVR and the Assn. of Independent Video and Filmmakers
(AIVF) both have listings of indie producers/distributors--neither is online
at present. I'm gonna hit em' both up for the data...

Let me know what you think about all this!

Cheers!
