We at Global Witness are looking for a top notch film-maker to help us make 
founder Charmian Gooch's campaign to end anonymous company ownership catch 
fire in the public imagination, especially in the US. Charmian's TED Prize 
wish this year was to nail this issue, which is not that visible but lies 
at the heart of tons of other thorny issues like money laundering, tax 
evasion, trafficking, grand corruption etc.

We have some good stories to tell on this issue, as the attached brief sets 
out, and the films will be launched at TED Global so it's a great platform 
for the right filmmaker - but we need someone really great! So I'm 
canvassing for recommendations, ideally of people who can pick up a 
complete story and make it sing as well as those who like to do their own 
digging. From previous posts like this, I've got Richard Bolland on my list 
(http://www.richardbolland.com/), but any others would be very gratefully 
received. 

All best

Oliver
