I am starting a SCREENWRITERS Conference here in PITTSBURGH, PA USA called the 3 Rivers Screenwriters Conference (http://www.3rsconference.com). I am in need of some research, particularly as to potential sponsors and partners. I have started an excel spreadsheet that includes some local sponsors. I would like to mail or email letters to these individuals and businesses asking them for money to support our project. As such, I need you to research the relevant information for those businesses and further flesh out that list. I currently only have 80 some entries and am looking to develop a list of at least 250 potential businesses. In order to do this, you would need to research any film-related businesses in the area (Pittsburgh - zipcode: 15219) such as film or video production companies or companies that support these folks like video equipment rental companies, truck rentals (like Haddad's), stage / prop / costume rental businesses, event production, even graphic design firms in the area (sometimes these companies do animation, special effects, or make marketing videos). If you're good and can help me with the sponsors, I would also want to hire you to develop a list of potential PARTNERS. These partners might not be from the local Pittsburgh area but could include bordering states such as Ohio, New York, Maryland, West Virginia, New Jersey. I can send you a list of the major cities in these areas to research, once you get started. But to give you some idea, a few examples that come to mind for partners are literary groups, writing groups, screenwriters or screenwriting groups, indie filmmakers, or film studies programs at colleges and universities, etc. etc. Anyway, first things first. Please help me with the Sponsors List so that I can start getting those letters out in the mail. I have attached an excel document so that you can see the type of information I'm looking for. It's pretty basic stuff - business name, contact name, email, address, phone #, how you found them, etc. Once you get the hang of things, we will talk over the Partners list. Meanwhile, don't be afraid to message me with any questions. I'm happy to help you in any way that I can! I V-E-R-Y eager to get started on this. So please let me know if you think you can assist me. I also expect any contractor to check in with me after 3 hours of work so that I can see how things are coming along and make sure that you are on the right path. The contract would still be hourly, but I need to make sure we're on the same page before things get too far down the wrong path. Best regards! And hope that you'll apply! Cathy

The no. 1 is whatsinproducts.com. Two things we can use: 1. All product information. Note that the URL string for the product detail page goes in simple numerical order: http://whatsinproducts.com/types/type_detail/1/16705/ That 16705 means that product is the 16,705th product entered into the database (on Jan 7 2016). Here's the first product, which entered the database Sept 3, 1996: http://whatsinproducts.com/types/type_detail/1/1/ 2. SDS information. The SDSs have a similar URL structure, but note that the last value in the string does NOT correspond to the Product IDs in the product detail queries. http://whatsinproducts.com/brands/show_msds/1/16537/ Still, as you know, very easy to join those tables. Another good source of SDSs is msdsdigital.com. They have ~100K free SDSs. And the data extraction should be similarly uncomplicated. Example: http://msdsdigital.com/msds-database?sort_by=title&sort_order=DESC&items_per_page=25&page=0 Just manipulate the page value. Starting with whatsinproducts.com and msdsdigital.com will be a launching pad. The task will be broken into three three parts. 1.) Scrape 10 records from each site and produce a data output we can evaluate 2,) Scrape 1000 records for each, submit to verify structure 3.) Scrape the rest of the site. There are images and some attachments. We are envisioning a CSV output with the final columns being identifiers for the attachments and pictures, the folders with the pictures and the attachments can be uploaded to my dropbox account.
