Love this! People never stop coming up with new ideas


The point is that it does not matter where you take this from as where you take them to..

Mitchell Rose

Hi --This is Mitchell Rose, the filmmaker of "Case Studies from the Groat Center for Sleep Disorders" referred to above as the obvious source for the idea for the video "Her Morning Elegance." (And also of "Learn to Speak Body" which I see is featured on the next page of this blog.) In response to Jo's comment: "The point is that it does not matter where you take this from as where you take them to.." I have to disagree. From the point of view of the world of viewers, it's understandable to have the attitude "Show me great films and I don't want/need to know where they come from." As a filmmaker, my point of view is, I came up with this idea and it's wrong for someone else to profit from my idea. I'm an independent filmmaker producing his own work at his own expense. It's not easy to eek out a living doing this. So how do you think I feel when all of a sudden I start getting emails from people saying, You should sue them. When a film like this achieves this type of success, opportunities emerge -- the filmmakers will get calls from various companies now inquiring about paying gigs. I could use some paying gigs. This is not the first time this has happened to me. I've seem other clear ripoffs of my work play in prime time national TV broadcasts, making the filmmakers famous. It's extremely frustrating. So I'm sorry, it does matter where you "TAKE this from." Intellectual property -- ideas -- are all an artist has.

Thanks for reading.


Great response Mitchell! Now get your video up on youtube or similar so we can actually share and promote it!

Mitchell Rose

Thanks, Chris. Yes, it's been on YouTube for a couple of years. It can be seen at:


Or the direct link to the movie on my website:





Tina, That was fabulous! and mesmerizing!
Thank you for sharing!

Peter Chylewski

Dear Mitchell,

I've learnt to love your movies right from the moment I was happy enough to watch them!

Watching your movies always makes me weep a lot, so much they are touching.

Thank you ever so much! And Cheers and all the best!


PS: *Case Studies from the Groat Center for Sleep Disorders" has proven to be a particular hit among the few highly intelligent, female students of psychology I happen to know...

my personal favorite still remains "Modern Daydreams 1: Deere John"
