Only took since 1997, but finally listed HempenRoad 1997 feature documentary film on IMdb. Have a variety of info, posters, stills and whatnot there. Kinda laborious but want to be thorough (especially out of respect for Eiji Masuda – rip).
There are now IMDB listings for:
Ian Hunter (rip)
Dennis Peron (rip)
D. Paul Stanford
with more to come (be patient &/or diy, its all the same process)
& links to where you can view the film (Reelhouse, Vimeo, Youtube – thanks to Brad Rees).

Indeed, there are now excellent examples which demonstrate the power of MovieSet’s two-headed monster. Cast and Crew members are employing our tools to streamline their daily workflow, they deliver content directly to their movies page including still photos, videos, news, or blog posts.
Once uploaded, the rich content gives the social media conversationalists an opportunity to reach out to an engaged community of fans interested in the film. Fans then become active contributors by following, supporting and commenting throughout each phase of production. And so on, and so on …
