Calling all Babylon 5 Fans! Would you like to appear in a documentary
about the Babylon 5 fandom?

Studio JMS has commissioned a documentary about the fans of Babylon 5! If
you were at Phoenix Comicon you have run into people making it, perhaps

interviews over webcam!

The details are as follows:

Interview Length: 15-30 minutes depending on the subject and how deeply

Software Needed: Skype, Facetime, or Google Hangouts all work. If you have

Format: The interviews can either be recorded live, or you can record

Interviews will be running until December, 2013, so there's plenty of

That about covers it! Those are interested feel free to respond in the
comments or send me a message!

the usenet fandom was to Joe and the show.
