In June I was contacted by Cosima Dannoritzer of Mediapro in Spain, about a tv documentary he is working on about the ever-shrinking lifespan of consumer products. The film will feature stories from the US, Germany, France and Spain and be shown in several European countries plus Australia. As the producer, Joan stopped by to discuss the project, and "see" the bulb for himself. Below are a few pictures of his visit. I for one, had a great visit with him and will be looking forward to the filming!

Pictured above is Joans encounter with the Centennial Bulb. In his hand he is holding an antique Shelby light bulb to get an idea of the fragile but enduring beauty of these bulbs.
