    Sorry 'bout that. We gave out the best information we had available and the street address hasn't changed, only our attempts to target what department the letters went to. We've actually seen reports of fewer than a dozen letters returned from the first wave and none so far from the second wave.

    What "address at keepb5alive" did you use? I believe there have been a couple of corrections since the site went up.

    The letters should simply be addressed to Feature Film Development at the studio, and not mention "Babylon 5", "The Memory of Shadows" or anything esle on the envelope. The film does not have an office on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, so the mailroom is not going to know what to do with the letters. We went to get these into the executive offices where decisions about Feature Films are made. Even if JMS did have production offices open on the WB lot there'd be no point in our sending the letters to him, which is what marking them "Babylon 5" would do.

    If your letter did contain such production-specific information in the address that is almost certainly the reason the letter was returned. We didn't figure that out until after the first wave of letters went out, which is why it took a little time to get the site updated.

    The other thing that will get a letter, once opened, returned is if it contains story or plot ideas. By all means support the crew and the movie in general, but do not suggest storylines involving those characters.

    Regards,

    Joe

    The address is the WB address from 'keepB5alive'. I didn't make any mistakes.

    I had the same marking, on a sticker placed on top of the address from KeepB5alive. Mine was postmarked from Houston on December 17 and got it returned past Monday.

    I wonder... maybe they did receive and read the first few letters and then decided to return the rest?

    I hate thinking on conspiracy theory terms but all the circumstances surrounding the rumors about TMoS have put me in that mindframe.

    Maybe we should keep track of postmarking dates for letters returned and not returned?

    Does anyone have access to the full casting advert?
    The version viewable by the general public does not say to whom applications should be sent.

    OK...don't mail to Winchester yet anyone...I've still not completely confirmed their involvement. I went back and double checked the source info and there is no confirmation!

    Therefore, hold up a bit until we can make certain that Winchester is the production house.

    I just took a browse of the site. Yes, Winchester Films and Content have merged. Yes, there are contact addresses on the site which should be gotten out to all fans (can you do that Ranger? Get that up at KeepB5Alive?) We know from the casting releases that Winchester is producing all or part of TMoS, so get your letters to them ASAP!

    Done!

    Thanks for the address and the info!

    We'll need to get that one out ASAP. It is my understanding that Winchester and Content have merged, or are in the process of merging...which, I don't know.

    Either way, from what I understand, Winchester/Content will be the production house for TMoS and WB will handle the distribution (thus keeping their fingers in the pot and their rights to B5).

    Edited update!!!!!!

    I just took a browse of the site. Yes, Winchester Films and Content have merged. Yes, there are contact addresses on the site which should be gotten out to all fans (can you do that Ranger? Get that up at KeepB5Alive?) We know from the casting releases that Winchester is producing all or part of TMoS, so get your letters to them ASAP!

    Here are two addresses in full for them:

    Winchester Entertainment
    19 Heddon Street
    London
    W1B 4BG
    United Kingdom

    or:

    Cobalt Media Capital
    & Winchester Entertainment
    4th Floor 5-7 Carnaby Street
    London
    W1B 4BG
    United Kingdom

    I filled in the London and the W1B 4BG portion on the second address since the site didn't...so I'm not certain that last portion of the second address is correct.

    The first one would, IMO, be the best one anyway.

    There is no email address listed on the site that I can find.

    There is also a US office:

    Winchester Entertainment
    701 Santa Monica Blvd.
    Suite 230
    Santa Monica CA 90401
    USA


    Tel: +001 310 395 4800
    Fax: +001 310 395 8578

    A flood of Faxes to both offices could be in order I think! Let us tie up their fax machine with letters to save the cast!

    Well...ok...that might not be the best idea since it might cause antagonism...but considering how little time we have to act...and considering that they need to see just how serious we are about this now...it might not hurt too much after all. Hell, it could just be what we need to gain their attention at last.

    hi lightstorm, i saw the same thing

    have edited my post somewhat though as ive just seen that someone posted about this on a different thread.
    but the links i used were
    http://www.winchesterent.com/news/news_items/wcdeal.htm
    http://www.winchesterent.com/corporate/history.htm


    sooooo - our contact is probably content films in the UK as to who to write to?

    Someone with knowledge can you explain what this willl mean? will it mean content film will produce the film and take advantage of the new UK film laws and then winchester films will distribute it? or will that still be warner? or is it impossible to tell.

    I cannot seem to find an industry address for them, but will continue to search. CE
    Hello Anthony,

    I too tried to find a web address for Winchester Films with very little success until I was almost pulling my hair out! Then I found a page with a live link to WF on it! That automatically redirected me to a page for www.contentfilm.com which is an Indie UK based film maker that may be an off-shoot (or the new working name for WF(?) ). So I have sent them an email and will let you know what response I get. I see little point in printing the full details as it may not be the right set!

    He..I did also not put any return address on my envelope, but I did wrote that I'm working at Chalmers University of Technology. The letter might end up at the principals office
