I've got a canon xa10 that I am about to put on Ebay. Comes with a wide angle and telephoto lens, extra battery, hood, and handle with XLR imputs. Perfect kit for a student, great second camera - quite rugged, and it is always good to have a camera with infra-red night vision in case you need to run around in the dark and save Japanese dolphins. Take a look at what they sell for on ebay and make me an offer. (dandmcguire at gmail dot com)

We are making a documentary film about the plight of the Maasai and the dilemma of wildlife they live with in Tanzania and Kenya.

The film will star Nelson Mandela, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Chelsea Clinton, Pope John Paul II, Prince Harry, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush and others (we know where to get relevant footage and in some cases footage is in fact already at hand).

Research and script are more than half done.

We are looking a person or company interested in partnering with us to make this ambitious film.

We at the Karen Schmeer Film Editing Fellowship are excited to announce today that Anna Gustavi ("Seymour: An Introduction") is our 2015 fellow! She will officially receive the fellowship on Tuesday, March 17, 2015 at the SXSW Film Festival Awards Ceremony.

Anna’s mentors for the year will be Bob Eisenhardt, A.C.E. (Meru, Valentino: The Last Emperor); Matthew Hamachek (Cartel Land, If a Tree Falls); and Toby Shimin (Buck, How to Dance in Ohio).

Having discovered film through a fine arts education instead of film school, Anna has followed a unique career trajectory, as did Karen, who studied anthropology and photography before editing for Errol Morris. While Anna has only completed one feature documentary, she has already demonstrated an innate sense of rhythm and emotion along with a natural instinct for stellar storytelling.

To find out more about Anna and the fellowship, please visit our website: http://www.karenschmeer.com.

Submit your documentary to Austin Film Festival!

Austin Film Festival is now in full swing and we want to see your documentary feature or short. We’re looking for docs that inhabit a solid narrative structure and relay a fully-formed and impactful story.

We’re excited to announce that for the first time our Documentary Short winner will be eligible for an Academy Award. In addition, POV, PBS’s award winning documentary series, has joined on as the official sponsor of AFF’s Documentary Feature Competition. POV will help select the competition’s winning film, as well as hold a meeting with each finalist during the festival.

The prize will be $2500 for the Documentary Feature and $1000 for the Documentary Short, in addition to reimbursement of one round-trip airfare and stay in Austin, Texas during the festival.  That’s not to mention the attention and press you’ll get for screening your film at AFF. Each year multiple documentaries go on to find distribution.

 Our early bird deadline is April 20th, and submission fee is $50. If you submit online through our website (not Withoutabox) you will receive $5 off: http://www.austinfilmfestival.com/submit/film/online/

We hope to see your film!

Hi, all! The production I recently joined is seeking an experienced drone operator in (or relatively near) Minnesota for an upcoming shoot. The team has previously used a C500 with a six foot drone on the same project. They are hoping to find a similar option locally. Any leads? If so, please feel free to email me at beth (at) fivespotfilms (dot) com

Posting this for a friend: 

I am looking for an executive/creative producer who is passionate about culture and dance and who wants to partner with me on a film about two incredible ballet dancers from the Paris Opéra Ballet. Most of the film has been shot and I am in the process of editing. I am well connected in France, but I need someone who knows the landscape here in the US to help with fundraising and other logistical aspects as well as artistic input in the creation of the film.

Here is a link to an early preview: https://vimeo.com/121326973

This is a paid position, but please be aware that funding has only been attained for the production phase of this film. This is a job for someone who believes in the project and who is passionate about art and dance. French fluency is not essential, but is a definite plus.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you are interested in meeting.

Any young folks looking to get into editing want some pro footage to cut something that they can get out there shot by an award winning crew? I shot a short doc with a great DP on a community of people who live in an American enclave in Point Roberts WA. It's a bit of an anthopological piece about community and isolation. It looks great, it could be great, but the person who paid to shoot it walked away after the shoot, so we don't have anyone to edit it, and the piece has no potential to make money. We have no budget. If you are a new editor who wants to get a piece into a festival it could be a good oportunuty. There is about 15 hours of footage. Might be a little more. I am having someone make selects, but they are taking forever. 

I'm not tremendously attached to the project but it would be nice to have completed. It is a cute story. If you want to talk about it email me at z@zookmann.com .

Looking to buy  archival footage from Seattle Pride 1975 and 2014 and SF Pride 1974 and 1975 when the band, Lavender Country played there. Any images of the band are a boon of course. This is  for a short documentary about Patrick Haggerty, gay country music icon, and his band Lavender Country. If the footage/image contains Patrick and band, terrific! but also looking for contextual material.

Have you ever done any filming in Poland? If so, I'd love to pick your brain. I'm planning a slightly complicated documentary shoot over the summer and I could really use some advice. Please send me an email -- dan.sturman@gmail.com ... thanks!

 Hey John -  At this point, I'm looking for advice on the ease of working with the Polish film commission, dealing with equipment rental, carnets, working with local crew, etc ... and, especially, I'm looking for thoughts in general about pitfalls to avoid ... I can't really go into specific details about the shoot on the public forum but can do so in conversation ...

John Burgan
Host

Those are a lot of questions, Dan, which is why I suggested that you spell out the issues in more detail - it's possible that someone might email you with those answers, but the way The D-Word works you're more likely to get what you need by breaking things down into bite-sized chunks as well as using the search function. I've shot in Poland serveral times, also with local crews (albeit not that recently) . You can definitely find competent local crew and competitive rentals in most locations.

 Makes sense ... sooooo, here's my first bite-sized chunk: if you've had any recent dealings with the Polish Film Commission, I'd be interested in learning more about your experience ...

John Burgan

The commission was created in 2012, so I'm going to take a step back as my last shoot in the country was before that. Sounds like similar entities you can find in most states and large cities these days.

We're in the conceptual stage, planning a mammoth crowd-sourced documentary/ video series across 20 countries in 12 months. We're looking for 20 video or documentary makers to be involved in their home country filming an event, local (relaxed) interviews and local traditions. Without giving too much away the footage will follow a couple as they partake in an internationally recognised celebration in the traditions, cultures and style of the country at hand – all to broaden their horizons and take on aspects of each culture.

We’re not looking for professionals, just people that are good at what they do and interested in being part of a new type of community video project.

Locations (to be confirmed): New Zealand, Japan, India, Thailand, Scotland, Peru, South Africa, Estonia, USA, Canada, Alaska, Lithuania, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Uruguay, Mexico, Iceland, Cambodia, Fiji and Germany.

Any interest or thoughts on this (vague) concept would be much appreciated. Looking at 2016 for filming.
