To the Tao Bums Community:My name is Terry Dunn and as the most experienced and I believe the only active instructor in Flying Phoenix Heavenly Healing Chi Meditations ("Fei Feng Sunn Gung"), or "Flying Phoenix Qigong" for short (a sub-system of the Bok Fu Pai Kung Fu tradition), I have been regularly contributing my knowledge and experience in answering questions posted on the very successful and lively "Flying Phoenix Chi Kung" discussion thread started by Lloyd McClelland ("Fu_doggie") in Nov. of 2009, that has close to 309,000 views to date. This posting is not about Flying Phoenix Chi Kung, Tai Chi, Chinese holistic health or meditative practice, or Kung Fu per se, but an explanation of--and CALL FOR HELP with--a most important legal matter that has affected my life and productivity for the past 12 years, and has almost completely consumed my energies over the past 3 full years: the best creative work of my life as an author, screenwriter and artist/animation designer that I made as a vehicle to teach the best of Chinese martial arts, philosophy, culture, spirituality and Taoist and Chan Buddhist spiritualism to the West--a children's animation franchise called "The Adventures of Zen-Bear"-- that I developed starting in 1993 but was unfortunately plundered in 2001 and 2002 by Dreamworks (as I testified to at trial) and turned into the first "Kung Fu Panda" movie and basis for five announced sequel films. A timeline summarizing all my work on "Zen-Bear" since 1992 is seen on my website, I need all your help--by way of social networking and dissemination skills--and your prayers and positive energy to help make a brand-new Youtube channel GO VIRAL: http://kungfupandala...ri 11-12-13.pdf So I thought it most fitting to celebrate Dreamworks' alleged "independent creation" of their Kung Fu Panda idea by publishing the videotaped deposition testimony of their star witness and professed creator of Kung Fu Panda, a former Dreamworks executive named Michael Lachance, via a new Youtube Channel named: "EAT YOUR PANDA". Most interesting and watchable are the 12 short (2 to 5 minute) video clips (numbered on the channel) that highlight how the Dreamworks Animation development department consisting of Lachance and his boss, Lance Young, operated from 2000 through 2004. For starters, please view this one 2-minute clip: (1) https://www.youtube.com/ • Lachance answers question of whether he had told anyone that his Kung Fu Panda idea was to be made into a film. (3) •Lachance states that he had no special interest or expertise in China or Chinese culture and that his interest in martial arts was only limited to taking karate as a kid--admittedly something that he was “not very good at.” (4) •Lachance states that he had no personal interest in pandas. (5) • Lachance ties Beck's doc to his creation of KF Panda, but then says his creation preceded Beck's. (6B) • Michael Lachance says: "I don't know"-- to whether he created Kung Fu Panda when he saw Rafe Beck's September 11, 2000 treatment. (6C) • Lachance describes his Kung Fu Panda idea. (6D) https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=jV-sBJ9Tn9s• Lachance revises "I don't know (my creation date of KF Panda)" to before seeing Beck's story.(7) Lachance says he lobbied Katzenberg to make Kung Fu Panda but can't recall any of the statements he made. (9) • Michael Lachance can't estimate his % contribution to Dreamworks Kung Fu Panda film. At one point puts it at .25% or 1/400. (15) • Michael Lachance's reactions to lawyer's suggestion to use term,"Your Kung Fu Panda idea". This Youtube channel launch is in sync with and in support of my U.S. Supreme Court filing. For if the most questionable, brow-raising, and controversial--if not amusing--of these video clips go viral, the news of the Supreme Court filing and the story of my litigation might get coverage from network and cable TV news shows, and get print coverage by WSJ, NY Times, Huff Post, BBC, etc. --as well as get treated by TV tabloid shows like TMZ, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, etc. Thus, you can keep the torch of justice lit and champion this extreme underdog, yours truly, by visiting my EAT YOUR PANDA Channel on Youtube, viewing the short 2-4 minute clips (about 12 of them), clicking Like or Dislike for each, commenting on them as you see fit, and then sharing them with all your friends--and especially with web-savvy young folks and movie fans who you think might be outraged over the kind of testimony seen on these videos--and find it laughable. Yes, Dreamworks and Dreamworks Animation have long maintained the facade of doing good business (Dreamworks (theatrical films) and DW Animation were one and the same company in 2001 and 2002 when Young and Lachance stole my well-documented Kung Fu Panda story (as I alleged in my and at trial), and I've enjoyed many Dreamworks films as much as most people. But now it's time for what I contend is the TRUTH about their theft of my Kung Fu Panda story to finally be put into the public light--that in my opinion is revealed by Lachance's choice of words, evasive answers, contradictory answers, body language, and rapidly changing countenances before and after giving so many of his answers to my lawyer's questions on these videos. So please step up and spread some light and truth--lux and veritas--and help make this first clip of 14 go viral for starters: https://www.youtube....h?v=nHzsc1IadL4 Thank you all very much, all you Tao Bums, for whatever help and support you can lend at this stage of my long and arduous battle. Sincerely, Sifu Terry Dunn
