Hello fellow filmmakers!

Did you know that half of the 1 million construction workers in Texas are undocumented?

During this political climate of anti-immigrant rhetoric, I'd like to share with you my first feature documentary uncovering the exploitations of immigrant workers in the construction industry of Texas (the deadliest in the country). When a new building fills in the skyline, we must ask ourselves, at what cost?

"Building the American Dream" follows immigrant workers as they fight for reform of the construction industry all while under the threat of deportation. We are currently in a Seed & Spark crowdfunding contest where we must gain 500 followers to our page. Please check out the trailer and follow the page for updates:

And if the story resonates with you, please considering sharing on social media and spreading the word. Here are some sample posts:

Texas is Open For Business! But at what cost? Half a million undocumented construction workers who build the state face exploitations and life-threatening dangers on the job. This film uncovers the ugly side of the “Texas Miracle.”

In the deadliest state for construction, undocumented workers fight for reform of the Texas industry while under the threat of deportation.

Texas is open for business! But at what cost? This film uncovers the ugly side of the so-called "Texas Miracle"

Undocumented workers fight back against the wild west of the TX construction industry. #buildingdreams #untoldstory

Thank you for your time!

I'm COO for a Japanese invested IT company based in the Philippines.

One project we are working on is localizing Jounetsu Tairiku, one of the biggest documentary TV programs in Japan. Every week the producers create a 25 minute biography focusing on a different inspiring person, from pianists, to surgeons, from aid workers to Nobel prize winning scientists. The content is really top notch, and we're looking to secure wider international distribution. I'm interested in hearing from anyone who can help us secure wider international distribution.

I am a director/producer looking for a person with a passion for filmmaking  in the NY city area (or Stony Brook)  who has started a film around addiction, compassion and confusion--I have some funding and I have a great camera and have started filming but just a little bit.  I know this is crazy but the goal is to finish the film in a year from now.  I enjoy filmmaking much more when I have a partner and thus I thought I would send out this post. I would be interested in someone with a lot of experience but also someone who does not have a lot of experience, such as a person recently finishing film school. It is all about the creative chemistry. If you can take a look at my sites and then send me an email and a CV (or website link) that would be a great start. Please send to   Thank you! Delaney

I’m writing to share a grant opportunity for documentary filmmakers that may be of interest. NIST, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, is offering a grant of up to $500,000 for the creation of a documentary film about the world-wide endeavor to redefine the kilogram and reboot the international measurement system.

This is an opportunity to create a film that chronicles a fascinating and largely untold story in the world of science. To learn more and apply, visit

If you or your members have any questions, please let me know. Questions can also be emailed to documentary.question(DOT)nist(DOT)gov

Hi docu folks! I'll be relocating from DC to NYC in August for a new job in arts education management in the city and I'm currently looking for housing in Upper Manhattan (Harlem/Washington Heights, Bronx) or Brooklyn (Williamsburg, Bed-Stuy areas). Does anyone have any friends in those areas who are looking for a roommate or even subletter for the Fall/Winter until I find my permanent home? My budget is $1200 or less and I am coming with a small dog named Chuck. I'm primarily looking at rooms available with shared kitchen/bathroom, studio apts, & 2-bedrooms. But, I'd prefer not living with anymore than 2 roommates. If you have any leads or suggestions on housing in NYC, please reach out at Thanks much and look forward to connecting!

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone knew of any Fixers in the campania region of Italy.

I am going to finally start shooting on location for my personal documentary that I have been working on since 2008. I will be leaving for Italy on 7/25 and will begin shooting when I get to my family's land on 8/13. The location I will be shooting in is Ostigliano, near Salerno Italy. Might be a long shot, but I feel like the d-word is the only place a long shot becomes shorter. Any recommendations are welcome. Please email natashamottola(@)gmail(dot)com !
