More specifically, is this question on-topic?

How can I find out the means for contacting Ben Burtt? E.g. his agent, etc...

I tried the obvious (LinkedIn, Twitter/Facebook, IMDB) approaches.

    For that specific? Instant no comes to mind. For a general case, I still don't see it on-topic. – Tablemaker Feb 19 '13 at 18:40
  • @TylerShads - I'm perfectly happy to ask a generic "what is the proper procedure to contact a famous person working on movies, for whom no public contact info is known". Basically, is there official place to find soeone's agents? Is there protocol for approaching? My bigger worry/suspicion was whether this is off-topic because it is about the industry and not movie contents. – DVK Feb 19 '13 at 18:42
  • BTW, the context is that we have plenty of questions on SFF.SE that require asking people in the industry (e.f. Ben Burtt for one of them). Some have twitters, most are not obviously reachable. – DVK Feb 19 '13 at 18:44
  • The address listed for him in Marquis Biographies online is: LucasArts PO Box 29908 San Francisco CA 94129-0908. This database may be available through larger public libraries and many university libraries. – MJ6 Feb 23 '13 at 8:44

I don't know about industry details, but trying to find personal contact information for individuals is strictly off-topic to me.

  • I don't think a name of a Hollywood figure's agent/publicist is something that is typically considered a personal and non-public detail? – DVK Feb 19 '13 at 22:16

    @DVK I think the point is anything regarding solicitation of personal details of any individual without that individual's permission is more privacy concerns than anything. – Tablemaker Feb 20 '13 at 17:17
  • @TylerShads - Definitely agree with that. My point was that people in hollywood seem to make "who my agent/publicist is" public, non-personal information, on purpose. Meaning there can't be privacy concerns. – DVK Feb 20 '13 at 19:40
