Week one

Posted by admin on March 3, 2011


Despite some timing and projector issues, the Premiere was a great success! We have only two pictures, if you took pictures, please send them our way so we can make an album :) Thank you to all who attended!

Final Cut

We have fixed motion animation glitches and replaced two cards, the online movie is now the final cut.

Subtitling the film

We have integrated the video with Universal Subtitles, which allows viewers to select subtitles and participate in subtitling the film in a crowd-sourced fashion. Please help us subtitle the movie and use the Universal Subtitles' embed code whenever you repost it!

Tell YOUR #StartupVisaStory!

If you have a similar story, we would like to know about it and help you spread it now. Write it on your blog (if you haven't already) and tweet the link to it with the #StartupVisaStory hashtag.

Going further

This documentary was produced in a short amount of time (about 2 months from "napkin" to premiere). Just saying, we think it would be a good idea to interview American citizens and interview foreign companies that started in the US and whose founders got kick-out by the limitations of US immigration. And film the immigration process of course.

A note on diversity

As I mentioned during the premiere, we could only interview a certain number of people in the documentary given its short production time. I initially contacted 2 friends who brought 2 of their friends, and 3 entrepreneurs that heard about us during the Kickstarter fundraising proposed to join the project. In the end, we interviewed everyone in the Bay Area that came to us during the process and that could be interviewed in time. As surprising as this sounds, given the history of each entrepreneur, we had no process of selecting participants.


Two of my friends are joining to help the project, Christophe is helping with the Facebook page, and Annie is going to help with the Twitter account, right now she is learning Twitter! Thank you guys!

Help us spread the word

We need your help to spread the film online and to the press. The film has a Creative Commons license, so post-it, tweet-it, share-it. lobby-it, press-it, project-it, spread-it, show-it and mention-it!

There are few hotel/motel choices on the wtsabenk. Go to Yahoo Travel or Travelocity and search hotels near Gretna, LA 70053 or New Orleans, LA 70114.Another answer mentioned the La Quinta. Holiday Inn also has a property on the wtsabenk: Holiday Inn ( ORLEANS-WEST BANK100 WEST BANK EXPRESSWAY; GRETNANEW ORLEANS, LA 70053 UNITED STATESHotel Front Desk: 1-504-3662361Hotel Fax: 1-504-3625814 Crime tends to become a topic in questions about New Orleans. A lot of that is because New Orleans City Hall (for their own political purposes) continues to portray crack dealers killing each other during territorial competition as a crime wave . It doesn't make the murders OK, but you only have to worry about that if you plan to buy or sell illegal drugs while you are here. Use the same common sense you need in every major city in the world and there is little chance you will be a victim of anything except a need to visit the gym: Pay attention to your surroundings. Stay away from anywhere dark deserted. Pay attention to your feelings if anyone or anywhere gives you a bad feeling, leave the area. Don't leave something like a camera-bag or backpack unattended on a park bench while you wander off to take photos. Etc.Hope you have a good visit!
