    So what you want to do is steal someone else's idea and pass it off as your own? Interesting.

    How about a documentary on the theft of intellectual property.

    How about the Kiwi diaspora? Read somewhere there are over 7 million NZ passport holders, but just over 4 million actual residents.

    Could touch on who's gone, why, likelihood of return, etc, etc.

    Well most documentary makers get their ideas from talking to people. Social links between people is often how you end up with a great story and great characters. Seeing as my attempt to find that through conversation has failed and time is running short, yes I am trying to get some ideas, not necessarily make a documentary on what people here say but maybe expand my looking area or ways of finding the story.

    Thats a pretty good idea. If i expanded on that and researched i'm sure i'll find some interesting information on that, I think I heard somewhere that a lot of former NZ students who have done their big OE are returning because of something to do with the recession .... interesting.

    The incredible amount of major dental work Kiwis have done.

    Or is that just the accent?

    Brumbers idea sounds a good 'un though.

    Maybe he could make a documentary about guys who see girls on the street and think that it constitutes dating them.
