  1. Regrettably, Dana, the special mandate studios no longer exist at the NFB. Responsibility for those mandates now reside in each individual production studio.

    — Michael Fukushima,
  2. You missed out on the Twitter feed for “Under the Boardwalk” a documentary about the game of MONOPOLY that has been tweeting production updates since February, one of the first documentaries to do so!

    Their feed is @MonopolyDoc

  3. Does Studio D have a twitter account? Does Studio D still exist? (I hope so!)

    — Dana Putnam,
