Basically, they contacted artists telling them they were a young film maker making a film on the realities of being a professional musician, interviewed them without ever mentioning piracy, then turned it into a ten minute campaign against file sharing. You can see it here. It turns out Frenzel Rhomb in no way support the campaign and actually blame the music industry for the problem.
