S.U.B. VISUAL ADVERTISING/LOGO PLACMENT

Reaching Out To Corporations For Possible Funding?!

looking at corporate sponsorship to make this project a go.  time andlack of funds are doing me no favors.  anyway, i'll be contactingseveral companies that manufacture BoPET, Mylar, PVC, industrial fans, and surveillance equipment, et al for donatingmaterials or money.  offering visual advertising in the form of logotagging in exchange for their help.  visual product placement is onlycool if the product is relevant to the project.

the sponsorship idea came from MMA fighter's shorts.  this same concept will apply to the S.U.B.
