Hi All~

I'm looking for projects that need a stills/footage researcher, or assistant producer. I have years of experience working as a photo editor at various magazines (Newsweek, Vogue, Daily Beast) and organizations (UNICEF, Channel 13, Alarm Will Sound), and am trying to move into documentary film. I'm about to start a two month freelance gig at the New York Times. In addition to my licensing/research experience, I'm also an adept producer for still shoots – and am hoping to apply those skills to documentaries as well. I recently finished research and licensing for a film about Harper Lee, and have also worked on broadcast & live event productions. Last fall I traveled to Iceland, where I collaborated with a photojournalist to make a short documentary about the horse herders. I produced, photographed, and was the audio recordist for Herd In Iceland, which is currently in the editing stage.

Thanks so much for reading.

Please share with your friends. This documentary is not to be missed. Really poignant look a not-so-natural disaster that occurred in New Orleans in 2005 and why it can happen again in your city.

Thanks!

Hello folks,

I need an AE to come in for a day on Sunday to help me organize/categorize media on my current project (a doc about the Cultural Revolution). We're using FCP7. Basically I need someone to come and organize media files by content rather than date (which is how it's organized right now) so I can quickly and easily locate footage. Piad gig; Los Angeles; Sunday probably 4pm-midnight (or whatever time they get it done).

Please contact me if you or someone you know can do this!

Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I just finished producing a funny, shocking and controversial feature-length documentary. I've got some good things happening already but I'd like to chat with anyone in the documentary community who has contacts/connections/insight and is interested in associate/executive producing. It'd also be nice to make new contacts/friends around the country/world to bounce ideas off with respect to this film, your film, future films, festivals, distribution, producer reps, etc.

I'll leave my trailer, twitter and personal email. I look forward to chatting.

Docs In Progress is now in its seventh year of presenting documentary work-in-progress screenings to the public as a means for filmmakers to get feedback from a general audience. This honest and constructive feedback is aimed at helping the filmmakers get to the next stage of completing and distributing the film.

We are excited to be returning to Washington DC next Friday, June 3 for a program sponsored by our longest-running sponsor, The Documentary Center at the George Washington University. We welcome both filmmakers and non-filmmakers alike to join us to watch and critique the films.

WHAT'S SCREENING?
73 CENTS by Ben Crosbie (15 minute rough cut)
Five days after her husband passed away from cancer, Regina Holliday took up her paint brushes and began a crusade to change the American health-care system, using art as her vehicle for advocacy.

THE LIST by Beth Murphy (82 minute rough cut)
After leading reconstruction teams for the U.S. government in Iraq, Kirk Johnson returns home only to discover that his Iraqi friends and colleagues are being killed, kidnapped or forced into exile by radical militias... all because they worked for the United States trying to help rebuild their country. Stunned by fear-mongering and stagnating bureaucracy that prevents these Iraqis from being rescued, Kirk begins compiling a list of these allies and, one by one, helps them find refuge and a new life in America.

WHEN?
Friday, June 3 from 7:00-10:00 pm.

WHERE?
George Washington University's Media and Public Affairs Building
Lower Level Auditorium (B-07)
805 21st Street, NW (corner of 21st and H Streets)
Washington DC 20052
Closest Metro: Foggy Bottom. Limited street parking free after 6:30 pm. Garage parking nearby on H and I Streets.

TICKETS?
$10 suggested donation ($5 suggested for Docs Insiders and full-time students). Cash only at the door. No advance RSVP required.

This program is organized by Docs In Progress and sponsored by The Documentary Center at the George Washington University. More info at http://www.docsinprogress.org

I'm looking for an editing/overall assistant to work with me in developing my new in-the-works wedding documentary. The ideal candidate has good knowledge of FCP and all things technical, and is extremely (bordering on obsessively) well organized. Brownie points for being a fast learner and fearless self-starter.

Position has fairly flexible days, but requires commitment of 2-3 days per week.

Our office is located in Dumbo, Brooklyn. This is an unpaid position to start with, save for a daily travel and meal stipend. Hopefully will become paid, in time, as we're trying to raise funding. My films (the latest being The Kids Grow Up and 51 Birch Street ) have been co-produced with broadcasters like HBO, ZDF/Arte and Channel Four and have shown both theatrically and on television throughout the world.

Furthermore, we're a small company and you'll be working directly with me, which previous assistants (at least those who've learned the art of sucking up) say is a priceless experience. For anyone with the ambition to learn documentary directing and producing from the inside, this can be like a one person film school.

To apply, please send me an email telling a bit about who you are, your film experience and what you hope to learn from working on the film: doug (at) d-word (dot) com. Thanks!

Hi Everyone!

Do you know any eccentric folks who might be interested in sharing their "things" with the world?... I'm producing a documentary web series this summer that's currently casting, and I'm hoping you might be able to help. :)

'Here's the Thing…' profiles people through pictures of things in their home. Using a combination of still photographs and voiceover narration, the seemingly mundane ‘things’ examined in the series become vehicles for authentic personal portraits. The series connects people together by showing that no matter how wildly diverse our walks of life, everyone has a compelling story tucked away in their home that other people find fascinating. Check out the show online at http://www.heresthethingtv.com.

If you happen to know anyone who might fit into any of the categories below who also has interesting "things" to showcase & would be into the idea of being featured in an episode, please let me know as soon as possible (we'll be shooting during a road trip across the country from June 15th – July 15th, so folks can be located anywhere in the United States). Also – if you know someone who'd be a great match for the show who doesn't fit any of the below categories, feel free to send their info along to me anyway (we'd be happy to consider her/him).

- politician (DC)
- career gambler (las vegas) (famous poker player)
- roadside attraction type people (weird collections of things, world's largest ball of twine, etc.)
- pastor/minister/preacher
- rock climber
- new ager / witch
- oil man/tycoon
- civil war re-enactor
- soldier on leave, just back from iraq/afghanistan, or otherwise military person
- prisoner
- park ranger (at a classic american national park)
- prostitute or sex worker
- farmer
- native american
- someone who lives in lighthouse
- famous actor/actress or media personality
- self-proclaimed "hillbilly"
- truck driver
- migrant worker
- cowboy
- retired couple who lives in an RV, also traveling cross country

I can be reached at: hello "at" jenniferhowd "dot" com. Thanks so much – and please feel free to pass this info along to your friends!

“Living with Schizophrenia: A Call for Hope and Recovery” is a half-hour documentary film that tells the story of three people who are living meaningful lives with schizophrenia, a chronic and potentially disabling brain disorder. The film sets out to increase understanding and to reduce the fear and stigma often associated with this mental health condition. About one percent of the US adult population, or 2 million, and approximately 24 million people globally are living with schizophrenia.
