Celebrate the official beginning of fall with a unique opportunity to
give feedback to documentary filmmakers on their works in progress.
Tonight's featured films are:

THE BEST PART OF EVERYTHING by Jes Therkelsen
A family faces their hopes, dreams, ambitions, and regrets as the
parents prepare for retirement and an empty nest while their 20-
something children get ready for the real world. This personal film
explores the difficulties associated with adapting to the changing
roles and responsibilities of a typical American family.

CAUGHT IN THE NET by the Institute for Documentary Filmmaking
A decade after “dotcom fever” took over Wall Street, we revisit three
Internet entrepreneurs who became unexpected players in big business
in the 1990s How did these kid millionaires deal with their success
and the subsequent burst of the Net Economy bubble?

This event is open to the public and no reservations are required. A
suggested donation of $5 can be paid in cash at the door. Program
starts at 7:00 and lasts until approximately 9:30 pm. Location is
the Jack Morton Auditorium on the campus of the George Washington

Foggy Bottom Metro and several parking garages are convenient to the

New user/poster here.

I am currently working on a documentary about an Iraq war
veteran, who shot his own video footage in Iraq, and has since
been speaking out against the war, including in the local
Binghamton, NY area, Crawford, TX for Camp Casey, etc.

Are there any grants or film financers interested in the current
political climate? I've been contacting everyone I know in the
"industry" and few people know of what I should do. This is my
first feature and it's (as of now) been financed by myself, which
is a fun feat making well under a living wage, let me tell you!

But I have a good fifty hours shot so far and am finally
confident in what I have thusfar. If anyone's interested in
hearing more at all, let me know.

Hi all,

I've created a video blog and am sending out the call for submissions.

Little While is a repository for short, non-fiction moments. Examples
of what we're looking for include (but are not limited to):clips of:
awkward dancing, smoke rising from the ground, objects inflating,
motivational speakers, public displays of affection, and short order
cooks.

This is also an opportunity to share clips from works-in-progress or
unfinished works. More information on submissions is available on the
site.

hello

anyone out there with an HD camera willing to get involved with
the production of a doc. i'm in NYC and am working on the
preproduction stage. i'm looking for someone willing to work with
no budget. someone who is looking for more experience or wants to
build their portfolio.

the first stage would be to shoot enough footage to put together a
trailer. that would require about 3-4 days of interviews. the rest
of the footage will come from archived news footage. so the work
is not that intense at the moment. all under controlled
environments. mostly just some interviews.

if interested send me an email and i can tell you about the
subject. osb.records@verizon.net

the subject is social and deals with child welfare. can get
political.

thanks
