    Dear Charlie,

    I emailed you some ideas re. your production plans in Siberia based on my 30-year-long experience behind the shoulders. I worked with many int’l crews incl. NatGeo, Discovery, Time-Life photographers etc. as a fixer or PM of 2nd Production Units and also traveled there as a free-lance journalist to co-author books published in USA and Italy.

    I have lots of good contacts or friends in this vast territory you will have a strong film-friendly reliable and very creative support incl. local administrative backing and absolutely no red-tape hindrance.

    Also one of my Moscow-based friend is a ex-test pilot who visits his family now and then
    driving from Moscow to the Southern Siberia and he knows all the roads there by heart.

    Best regards, Eugene Zykov Russian Film Commission — Film-Media
