forever is a long time for a DVD.
yeah, don't they degrade and become unplayable in a decade or two?
actually computer burned DVDs have a shelf life of 3-5 years.
Wanted to let all D-Worders know about this month's IDA Doc U event, an Evening with Ross Kauffman, director of the Academy Award winning documentary Born Into Brothels
I'll be moderating a conversation with Ross in a small, intimate setting with lots of opportunities to ask questions and mingle. Ross will be talking about the journey of "Born into Brothels" from concept to screen to Oscar and discussing challenges, tips, and advice for shooting in foreign countries, co-directing, the value of mentors, making the move from documentary into narrative and the evolution of a career that starts with an Oscar for your first film.
Space is very limited so I suggest buying tickets early. The event takes place on Thursday June 11th at the Kodak Screening Room in Hollywood at 7pm. You can read more and book your tix here
DocuClub in June: Tuesday, June 23, 7 p.m.
Our next DocuClub screening will take place on Tuesday, June 23, 7 p.m., at The Tank, located at 354 West 45th Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues, near Times Square).
Our moderator will be Irene VillaseÃ±or. She is an independent media professional and non-profit consultant. She got her start in media as a youth producer at Educational Video Center where she produced her first documentary, Out Youth In Schools, which was broadcast locally on PBS. From 2000 to 2008, she served as the Youth Views Director at P.O.V., the longest running nonfiction film series on television. At P.O.V., VillaseÃ±or trained youth across the country in how to use independently produced media to promote dialogue and action in their communities and contributed to building national outreach campaigns for P.O.V. broadcasts. She has served as an advisor for the Ford Foundation, Kentucky Foundation for Women, Tribeca Film Institute and the Women, Action and the Media Conference at MIT.
We will screen "Ultimate Christian Wrestling" by Jae-Ho Chang and Tara Autovino. The documentary follows disenchanted former pro-wrestlers Billy Jack (â€œGodâ€™s Propertyâ€), Rob Adonis (â€œThe Modern Day Warriorâ€), and Justin Dirt (â€œThe Custodial Cripplerâ€) as they try to find a new way to combine their passion with ministry. "Ultimate Christian Wrestling" was awarded Honorable Mention at the Tribeca All-Access Creative Promise Awards in 2007.
Jae-Ho Chang attended the Rhode Island School of Design where he studied Film, Video and Animation. He is now completing his final year of studies in the graduate film program at New York University. In 2005, he was nominated for the IDA/David L. Wolper Student Documentary Achievement Award for his documentary "Love to Hate, Hate to Love." Two years later, his film "The Last Vacation" was awarded the Craft Award for Best Screenplay, Best Editing, Best Acting, and was selected as a Wasserman Finalist at New York Universityâ€™s First Run Film Festival. Chang is also a recipient of the Martin Scorsese Young Filmmakers Scholarship and the Ang Lee Scholarship Award.
Co-director Tara Autovino received her B.A. in philosophy from Hunter College. She is a recipient of the Deanâ€™s Fellowship at NYUâ€™s Tisch School of the Arts, where she is completing her final year in the graduate film program. Her short, "For a Swim with the Fish," premiered at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.
