We are currently looking for anyone to help us spread the word of our mission to Afghanistan. We need to let as many University and College students join our temporary facebook site "Team Taylor takes on the Taliban until we have our site operational.
Anyone with access to student e-mail data bases in Canada, UK, or abroad is welcome to suggest any methods and costs they are looking for compensation. We are looking for results and forming ongoing relations with anyone that can produce. We are also looking for anyone that has data base information for theater consumers as well in Canada or abroad.
example press release:
Famed journalist Scott Taylor is teaming up with five people committed to the concerns of the Afghani people and the international dynamics of the Middle East to produce a fresh, unbiased, and edgy documentary on life in Afghanistan.
The documentary, which is slated to start filming at the end May, will be turned into a powerful lecture series that will give a perspective of the war torn country from that is not found in Canadian media.
“We’re going beyond the wire to expose what’s real as opposed to what people think it’s like,” said Taylor. “Most Canadians are spoon-fed their news.”Dubbed ‘the voice of the grunts’ by the Globe and Mail, and ‘a one man army’ by the Toronto Sun, Taylor is no stranger to working in conflict-ridden regions.
A former professional soldier, Taylor has been editor and publisher of Esprit de Corps since 1988. He has logged over one million air miles as a war correspondent. Since August 2000 he has made a total of 21 trips into Iraq to report on the effect of UN sanctions.
Two of Taylor’s most notorious experiences were interviewing former Afghan warlord Abdul Rashid Dostum and the five days he spent as a prisoner and tortured in Afghanistan in Sept. 2005. The harrowing story of Taylor’s capture sparked worldwide media coverage.
