Hi to everyone. A friend recommended I check this site out and post my services here as a composer.

I'll try to keep my CV brief! I'm writing music for a feature-length drama at the moment, and will be scoring two documentaries over the next few months. Past credits include another feature film, video-pods for Current TV and work for various media companies.

In the end it's the music that counts, so I'll post a link and let it speak for itself: www.soundclick.com/benbeiny

Let me know if you like the sound of it, and whether you think I would suit a project you're working on. Rates are reasonable and negotiable, and I can also supply a full CV with references on request.

Thank you,

Ben Beiny

The Content + Intent Documentary Institute
Working Films Residency at MASS MoCA
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Wilmington, NC. December 18, 2007) – It’s that time of year again! Working Films is accepting applications for its five-day residency for documentary filmmakers at MASS MoCA. The residency, which is called the Content + Intent Documentary Institute, will take place March 12-16, 2008 in North Adams, MA. Applications for admission to the Institute may be found online at www.workingfilms.org (or you can contact Anna Lee at alee@workingfilms.org). The application deadline is January 25, 2008.

Ensuring that a film’s release has an impact is as important as its production. The Content + Intent Documentary Institute will guide approximately ten filmmakers and advanced film students through the development of outreach plans for their film projects. Linking the documentaries-in-progress to organizations committed to progressive social change will be a key component of the Institute. Participants will create an audience engagement plan for their films, identify community partners, and develop support materials, including effective timelines, budgets, and implementation strategies. Working Films will offer insight on the development of web sites, fundraising tactics and press strategies.

Filmmakers accepted to participate in the Institute must submit a $500 enrollment fee to attend. (Some scholarships are available.) The enrollment fee covers housing costs and some meals. Attendees will reside in MASS MoCA’s artist housing which is within walking distance of the training site.

Working Films will announce accepted applicants on February 7, 2008.

Hi all,

Doing my first documentary film in Italy in January. The sound guy backed out, and now I'm doing my own sound. Really, I just need a shotgun mike/shock mount (windscreen and cable) and boom pole. While I can't afford to buy my own right now, I'm wondering if anyone has one they can loan me. It would be SO greatly appreciated. I can give you a deposit and return it in perfect condition.

I'm at editor@darlabruno.com, located in New Jersey and can pick up in the area or New York or pay for shipping.

Thanks!

Greetings D-Worders,

We are a small DC-based independent filmmaking team, with several award-winning shorts under our belts, seeking a creative editor for collaboration on our first feature-length project: a documentary about the simmering conflict between religious fundamentalists and increasingly open gay and lesbian people in rural and small town America.

The ideal candidate will have experience in weaving together intimate verite footage, interviews, archival clips, graphic animation, and personal narration to craft a fast-paced film that is engaging and informative.

Check out this link for a brief introduction to the project: http://qwaves.com/qwaves38/Heartland.html

Please reply with resume, or for more information, to: qwavesjoe@yahoo.com

Thank you,

Joe Wilson & Dean Hamer

"Rose & Nangabire," a documentary we are working on, now has an element that may be taking place in Congo. If you know of anyone there – videographers, producer, fixers, etc. Any leads would be great! We need to film a conference for most of January and would love to hire someone who is already there.

You can learn more about the project here: http://www.artsengine.net/big_mouth_films/in_the_works.php
