Traffic Control

Living Biography and Traffic Control

Produced by Living Biography, in conjunction with Lake of Fire Productions, the made-for-DVD film takes viewers on a journey of opinions, experiences, and perspectives from people across America on the topic of Internet pornography and how easy minors and business employees have access to it. From January to November 2006, Living Biography crews traveled around the nation and shot more than 200 hours of footage interviewing adult entertainment peddlers, ex-porn stars, psychological experts, business owners, technologists, Internet porn addicts, educators, members of the Free Speech Coalition, and hundreds of teenagers. The film also follows the efforts of Ralph Yarro to create the Internet Community Port Act (aka CP80 Internet Channel Initiative), a controversial piece of legislation that, for the first time, makes online pornography regulation possible without infringing on First Amendment rights.

LostNMissing, Inc.

LostNMissing, Inc., a 501c(3) Non Profit, strives to help prevent loved ones from going missing and to bring awareness of those who are, by providing support to families while educating others. We work with various law enforcement agencies across the country, on behalf of families of missing, and help to bring awareness via community awareness, media, internet and social network groups of their missing loved ones. This relieves the frustrations that families endure when a loved one goes missing and enables families to have peace of mind in knowing that all the necessary steps are taking place. We interact on a daily basis with a number of families who are seeking missing loved ones and also guide those members to supportive groups of other families who have the same experiences. Linking families together has proven to be a valuable and supportive tool both emotionally and physically for those beginning the steps of searching for their missing loved one. We provide the family with needed information and the steps to take so that information can be distributed throughout all the proper channels so that their missing family members get the needed attention they require.

Our services are always no charge to families of missing loved ones. We are dependent upon individual donors, corporate donors and In-Kind donations to fund our mission. Our Board of Directors have diverse backgrounds from Sales and Marketing expertise to a Registered Trauma Nurse and a Private Investigator. Our blend of knowledge in working with people under traumatic situations enables us to succeed. Our follow up and proactive approach is exemplary. We assist families of missing across the United States and have excellent testimonials and references from those we assisted.

Traffic Control captures a controversial and important debate around First Amendment rights, society's obligation to protect children from unwanted and graphic Internet content, and an alternative solution called the Internet Community Port Act that could change the Internet as we know it.

Traffic Control is the first of three full-length films slated to follow the affect of Internet pornography on our society, and America's demand to regulate it. Traffic Control screenings are being arranged in cities across the country, and as a call to action towards providing a safe Internet experience for today’s children, a free 'action kit' providing the tools needed to fight against unregulated Internet pornography
