Posting this for a friend - he can be reached at:

I'm headed to NY next week to shoot my close friend
(and great artist) Lucinda Williams in concert. It's a no budget
shoot - a labor of love. But she's one of the best in the country at
what she does. And she rarely lets anyone videotape her, so this is
an extremely rare event.

I'm looking for camera operators willing to work for little to no pay
- basically for the love of the music. In return they get to witness
one of the best live acts in the country today. These shows also
promise a series of special guests. (I just finished shooting 5
nights in LA - guests included Emmy Lou Harris, Robbie Krieger ((the
Doors)), Mike Campbell ((Tom Petty's band)), Steve Earl and more.)

It's a perfect opportunity for an AC or operator who wants to add
some celebrity footage to their reel. And it's an even better opportunity for
anyone who loves shooting good music. She's playing 5 nights in NY. 2 at Irving
Plaza Sept 29 and 30. 3 @ Town Hall Oct 2-4.

One last thing - we're shooting mini DV. 24p. 16:9 aspect ration.

Hello, everyone. Just wanted to let you know that I am conducting a seminar in documentary filmmaking in Santa Monica, CA the weekend of October 13-14th. It's called The Documentary Film Makers Course and taught by myself and Genevieve Jolliffe, the authors of The Documentary Film Makers Handbook: a Guerilla Guide. We teach from a practical standpoint as opposed to theoretical.

Go to or call 310-941-2168 for more info. We will give $50 off to anyone from The D Word. Call to get a coupon code. Hope to see you there!

Do you or someone you know want to get paid to write about your
experience at the Hamptons Film Festival, London Film Festival or the Hollywood Film Festival? We're looking for someone to be our "Festival Tour Roadie" who can submit some blog entries for
our website.

For example we had Robert Ell, the talent booker for Dailies, do the one
from Toronto.

It's just a way to get a little local color on the site.

Have a great weekend!

Tamra, do you want anything from DOK Leipsig? Email me if so please. When I go down it will be to concentrate on the target country co-production meetings that last about two or three days. But the week-long festival is celebrating its 50th and has what sounds like a wonderful range of films. Worthwhile getting someone else, if not me, to write about that.

Joe Scherrman
