"Flimmakers"? Is that what we call people who whip out cell phones and tape death/misery of others? Listen, I understand the importance of the video. It's beyond wretching what happened to Neda (and countless, faceless others). But if I got shot and someone shoved a cell phone in my face to put on Youtube, I don't want them called filmmakers. Gives them a credibility that makes my skin crawl.
