You are invited to participate in a research study that examines the current status of independent filmmaking in the U.S., and in Washington and Oregon in particular. This survey will contribute to a doctoral dissertation conducted by Mary Erickson, from the University of Oregon School of Journalism & Communication. This research will help me understand how and why art and culture, through the medium of film, are transformed into products for sale.

If you choose to participate, please complete this survey, which should take approximately 20-25 minutes. Your participation is voluntary. If you do not wish to participate, simply exit from this website. Responses will be anonymous and your name will not appear anywhere on the survey, unless you agree to be contacted for an in-depth interview.
