Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!

2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.

8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

    What movies do you work on? I'm always interested in knowing what my Armenian Film brothers are up to so I can support them.

    I'm working on my own short films, right now. I attend USC School of Cinematic Arts.

    What is your involvement in this film?

      Re: east of byzatium

      great to hear.

      I'm what some people called a Swiss Army Knife. I was hired as the Production Manager at Fugitive Studios. But I also performed duties as the Casting Director, Director of Photography during the shoot and Lead Editor by post production. Also worked along side the writers and a story editor and so forth... still involved in one the many that are trying to get this film made.

      Recently, Roger is preparing a Graphic novel to come out to create buzz around the non Armenian audiences. I wrote one of the issues and worked on story for the other 7 ( i think they are 8 total).

      Best Regards

          2) Persians had an army and allies from all corners of Asia. I believe that there is other tribes in the first movie that are send by the Persian empire to gain control of the Armenians during the time before Tiridates came back from Rome.... that is not an interpretation that is a fact.
          But Not Chinese, Scythian.
          Wait, are you saying it's a fact that they were sent to gain control of Armenians...or are you saying it's a fact that they assimilated and mixed with Armenians?

                i happy that those test videos are merely just test videos and not final products, or i'd have died.

                As for historical accuracy, I'm fine if it's not 100% as long as the end result has a good script and isn't a visual eye sore
