Pyramids and Superstars

The pyramids gained a lot of media attention over the last few weeks and Semir is turning into some kind of superstar. People already call him 'Uncle Sam'.

Another superstar from Bosnia, singer Hari Mata Hari, the third place winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2006, is talking about the pyramids in an exclusive interview with Butterflies and Bunnyrabbits.

Dear Mr. Hutan Vahdani, would you be so kind to tell us who is paying for the production of this documentary? Is it the Foundation, with the money of the Bosnian tax-payers, or is it a private funding? Also, are you aware that you are producing propaganda material for one of the worst history falsifying projects in this part of the world?

BBR is a 100% privately funded and completely independent creative venture. The documentary will treat the subject matter as objective as possible. Best regards, Robert Huttinger

Mr. Huttinger, I believe that BBR is 100% privately funded and completely independent creative venture.

However, I'm not asking about BBR, I'm asking about this documentary in particular. Is it really a documentary, or another paid-for project similar to your other comercial projects, like the comercial video for that German newspaper? Technically, say, if Britney Spears paid you to make a short movie about her, we could probably call it a documentary?

Also, are you aware of the international letter to UNESCO in relation to the alleged Visoko pyramids?

I love your goals, though... " raise public awareness about methods of deceit and fraudulent concealment in times of confusion caused by the unreflected overflow of information."

If you really think this is "propaganda material" then think what you want.
The Bosnian Pyramid will get PR attention whatever you like it or not.
However, this isn't a propaganda documentary.
Why should it be a propaganda documentary? Don't you find it quite interresting that we might have found the first pyramid in europe? I'm sure many people around the globe do.
Anyway, I dunno why... But why in the world do you think the archaelogical park would be a propaganda corporation?
They don't have the financial status to do a documentary. HINT: They have volunteers to dig... How do you think the financial looks?

Dear anonymous poster,
we would not call it a documentary, if we got paid for it by the foundation or anybody else. We are independent filmmakers and keep the filmmaking completely separate from our commercial work. A percentage of any revenue coming in from this kind of work, goes to non-profit charity organisations, for instance. And in case you have proven and viable information and want to participate to the making of the documentary, we welcome you to get in touch with us.

Just because Osmanagic isn't an "educated" archaelogist it doesn't mean that he doesn't know ANYTHING about it.
He's been studying the pyramids of latin america for 15 years. Don't you think he could have some kind of knowledge?

Dear Butterflies and Bunnyrabbits,

Erasing my comments will not change the following facts:

1. Mr. Osmanagich is not an archaeologist as you portray him in your 'documentary',

2. Participants of your project have personal interests in proving the existence of the alleged pyramids,

3. You avoid to answer certain questions to the public, e.g., who is financing the production of this 'documentary',

4. The release of your 'documentary' coincides with the official beginning of the pre-elections campaigne in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Erasing questions like this will not make them go away.

Dear Stultitia,

Since you seem to have a hard time to comprehend the clear answers to your repeated questions, here they are, for the last time:

1) Semir Osmanagics' function in the project is, based on his work over the past 15 years, his participation to the excavations and the fact that he studies "human cultures through the recovery, documentation and analysis of material remains and environmental data, including architecture, artifacts, biofacts, human remains, and landscapes."(Def.term. Archeology, Wikipedia) an archeologist.

2) Mrs. Lukacs is in the very same way affiliated with the making of the documentary, as numerous other people who so far contributed their opinions in interviews.

3) The question about who finances has been answered twice already and the answer is not going to change the third time either. The project is fully financed by Butterflies and Bunnyrabbits.

4) There is no definite release date set yet other than before September, and quite frankly this is the first time I heard about these elections.
