    Editor for hire! Since 1994

    Although I am nominated this year for best editing in a music video (short-form) my passion is longform independent documentary as I myself am sitting on quite a few hours of footage of a friend’s band, to be released by 2012.
    more info here:

    Also have experience in editing longform docudrama for television.

    Kudos on your project! And thanks for your consideration. I’m located in NYC, USA.

      I have browsed through the movie and am yet to watch it. However it gives me great pleasure to see the work and suffering this small “band of brothers” went through to get torrents on the web. Some of us come out of hiding to praise. This is my first ever Public appearance, but I do it in honor of these men.

  21. Sindalf says:

    Noticed this project like everyone else here and I took note one specific part that interests me. “- Most parts of this film are in Swedish, subs will be available for translation”

    I have experience in subtitle timing and I am wondering if you would like a hand with this aspect of the project. In specific I mean the English version. Shoot me an email if you are interested at all.

  22. I do post production for video, let me know if there is something i can do for this noble cause!!!
    since 2004 ive download all my software from the pirate bay, so i own a lot to this web site!!!

  25. Felix Breidenstein says:


    I’m Felix Breidenstein from Germany and heard about your project on the TPB-website. I want to help you financing the film, but I don’t have a credit card, so I thought about donating via PayPal. The reason of this email is that I don’t know if I’ll also get a shirt when donating via PayPal or if the rewards are only for the people who donate with a credit card??

    Best regards,
    Felix Breidenstein

  27. The Producer says:


    If you believe in what Pirate Bay was doing, I assume we will be able to have your final product for free? After all, as a society we’re all collectively paying for it, correct? And you shouldn’t care if I share with friends?

    Good Luck!

    The Producer

    p2p manifesto

    we the people reserve the right to subvert capitalism for the people’s common good. we recognize that our actions are deemed illegal by an arbitrary government. we revoke said authority and persist in our natural glory. our goal of chaotic determinism aims to break the agents of property not the celebrated originators of information. we salute the originators and ask for sanction in bountiful times. we shed not a tear for those who fail our side. yet our intention is not to cause suffering but to exercise our souls in freedom. our world is abundant and we rebuff the system that imposes artificial scarcity. we hail evolution and have faith that our pursuits will cultivate wise change. we prevail in our union of democratic communication ever vigilant of our equal tendencies toward corrupt amoral systems and the people’s will.

    Tja Simon Klose och crew! hade vart tungt att få klippa ihop dokumentären. Gått Media och Pluggat film i sthlm. Klippt massa egna och andras grejer förut olika projekt kort filmer dokumentär osv. Säg gärna till så kan vi komma överens om nånting. Jag gillar iden konceptet och It’s for a good cause så jag kan lägga ner hjärta på det. Bless

  33. Brandon says:

    Hello. I wanted to become a director ever since I was a little kid. But the one problem I faced growing up was how I couldn’t afford to buy the good $700 editing programs to help me. I later found TPB and it helped me out a lot! I worked so hard to get to where I am today and in the future I hope to make a cool movie like this! I wish you the best of luck and I hope TPB will get all the thanks in the world!

  34. Novembersun says:

    Hey Simon

    I just saw the footage for pirate bay doco. I am happy that someone is documenting the evolution of one of the biggest things to happen for our times. I felt the need to write to you because of what you said about creating a separate paradigm in the age of the internet. We need to evolve into better people, where clinging to archaic ways of doing business should be changed.
    At the same time I strongly believe that no one needs to lose in this, there could be a synergy between sites like Pirate Bay, the companies who own rights and the end user. We have to embrace technology and at the same time bring everyone on board. Evolution has to be all encompassing, would love to add value to your project, if that is at all possible.

    Cheers and Good Luck.

  35. Vladimir Gojun says:

    Hi Simon!
    My name is Vladimir, I am a film editor from Croatia, and also have been directing documentaries myself… I have MFA degree in Film editing from the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Zagreb ( that’s the capitol of Croatia) and have been a professional for quite some time. Ive been in the business for the last 10 years as an editor on features, shorts and feature documentaries. I have an experience dealing with huge amounts of footage on documentaries and features, one of such documentaries titled “CASH & MARRY” has been recognized as one of 10 best East European documentaries in 2009. Some films I edited had competed and awarded on some major film festivals i.e. Berlinale, Karlovy Vary, Sarajevo Film Festival, Visions Du Reel etc. I worked a lot on foreign projects with large number of people from all over the world and have a history of working with different directors from all corners of the earth. I was attracted by your ad and the subject and thought of it as a good way of finding co-operatives or building a wide network of creative people. I think that your subject is very important and worthy one and am very interested to help you finish this documentary. If you find my reply useful and appealling you can contact me through e-mail… if not, I wish you all the best on finishing your project… good luck

    ìs this movie coming out ever? ?or did all those people donate for this two year old website

  57. Slippery Mistress says:

    Hey, I am wondering if I can make a suggestion for another aspect to show in this movie? I am wondering how in the heck HOLLYWOOD can march into any other country and take computers and equipment like this, BUT CHINA is free to copy and sell what ever they want and have for hundreds of years. They have been making knock offs since before the 18th century.. am I right??

    Do you think hollywood has the balls to march into China and pull that crap??

    Just a thought.

  58. Anders Jepsen says:

    Dear Simon

    When do you expect the movie to be released online?


  59. Cheyenne Gallagher says:

    I love your original trailer for TPB AFK (not the recent one although that’s good too). It seriously has to be one of my all time favorite trailers and the music just gives me shivers. It’s so simple yet so effective and I’m really excited for release this year. I’ll buy a copy however I can to repay your hard work! Thanks again!

      ps: I would have gladly donated the 10$, or even the 20$ for that matter, but now I feel that i would be feeding a system that’s flawed.


    • Claus says:

      They are just using existing laws to safeguard against the multi-million dollar lobby they’re up againts. Using their own laws to smack them in the face. Doesn’t have to be the way they intend to use it towards people with an honest agenda.

  62. TPB Brasil says:

    we now free on tpb and nothing to pay for it aye aye, and no one to pay this stupid ai ta going crazy?

  64. Greg Schrack says:

    What makes this movie different from any other movie? Next week there will be hundreds of different copies to chose from on TPB..

  65. nugent says:

    WTF Pirate Bay is charging for this movie?!

  66. If I had 20 million-bigillion-gazzillion dollars… i’d give it to you guys… I want this movie to make more money than any movie produced in the USA!

    Anytime someone modifies a fact it becomes a fiction.
    I’d love to help TPB’s legal issues but I’m not the guy. This guy just might be though Judge David Wynn Miller.

    I have to say he’s entertaining at the very least, but what he shares about Quantum PArse Syntax Grammar seems to me to be the answer to any contract. A copyright written in adverb verb syntax grammar is and does make the contract right voidable.

    A foreign vessel in dry dock, all the courts of the world consider you a vessel and trespassing, so they do not have to judge the facts. You can test it by boarding a vessel in port and see what the captain will do to you.

    Really now, I do hope you will take the time to hear what this guy is saying. Going into their court without knowledge will get no justice.

    All the world’s post offices are in the suppression game.
    The word document is another maritime connection.

    Is there any Avaible ??
    THANKS z00k3r

  73. igor polyakov says:

    Great movie! To be honest with you- this is one amongst very few movies i saw through years which i’ve watched from the very beginning till the very end and didn’t use fast forward and etc. I support your cause – free internet & creativity inspiring each other as much as possible for the greater good for all mankind. I would like to donate but there is no option to pay with visa card or any other (russian local) services i have access to.
    Anyway, keep up the good work, the right ideas will win eventually.

  74. Erik says:

    Hello, i just wanted to say that this was a great video! And i’m thinking about donating some money here on this site later today! And i have faith in a free internet! It have been giving us so much since we got it so why shut down one of the biggest sites?


  75. Mikael Herrström says:

    Det första som slår mig är hur snygg filmen är rent fotografiskt. Det andra är att det är den bästa svenska filmen betraktat i underhållningsvärde sedan, tja…sjunde inseglet. Skitsnyggt filmiskt fotografi på allt från Stockholm till datakablar. Något man aldrig ser i vare sig Bron, Kon, Höök, Böök, Löök, Wallander eller Beck. Eller hypnotisören, eller inte om det vore din dotter osv osv.
    Resultatet är en jäkligt spännande dokumentär om en ödesfråga förpackad i ett konstverk som sticker långt ut och långt bort från svenska filminstitutet.

    Hats off för Klose.

  76. Does the CC license permit to broadcast this on an analog pirate TV station (no commercials)?

    As i would like to use this for the first “all-day-broadcast”.

  77. Anton says:

    Really enjoyed the film guys been supporting the piratebay since the very beginning. The only thing you guys could have done to improve the documentary, would be to show the more international view of filesharing at the time. How sites like torrentfreak and were taken down but pirate bay held it’s ground.

    TPB, you are the future of Internet.

    Please don’t lose coz the younger generations can grow up and be like you >_<

  82. John Doe says:

    I started getting involved in the hacking/cracking/P2P/Anti-Copyright scene when I was only 11 years old. I’m a 90′s kid so of course I have a nerdy side. I have been a member of the pirate bay for a very long time. I created my account near the sites creation. Without The Pirate Bay I would not be who I am. I would not have been motivated to learn about certain things if it wasn’t for your attitudes, political views, and most importantly, I would not have had the information I needed to learn and grow.

    Watching this film really made me sad. You are cool for doing what you do, your not all the spitting image of good health, and neither am I. But you are my hero’s. You are inspirational. You are making a difference. Stay strong my friends, your warriors of the digital and political world. And your WINNING!!! Like Charlie Sheen. :) Serving a few months in jail sucks, but it’s part of the battle.

    Never give up, never say die. We will not forget, we will not forgive. We are many, and we support you! No matter what, we won’t let you lose.
