Internship in Outreach for New Environmental Documentary
You already know about climate change. But did you know climate change affects the ocean? Some of the excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is dissolving into seawater. It's changing the pH, making seawater more acidic; some say "corrosive." This water actually dissolves the shells of certain shellfishâ€”clams and oysters, for example, as well as tiny planktonâ€”and coral reefs. The effects are working their way up the food chain. Imagine a world without fish: it's a distinct possibility.
A Sea Change is the first documentary about this effect, known as ocean acidification. The film combines hard scientific information-â€”we interview internationally known scientistsâ€”with the personal story of a family of fishermen. With Sven Huseby, retired educator and concerned grandparent, we travel from Norway to Northwestern America, learning about the scientific, economic, and cultural implications of ocean acidification. Target completion date: December 2008.
This is the third film by director Barbara Ettinger of Niijii Films. Her work has screened at Sundance and been broadcast on PBS.
The focus would be web-based: researching ocean acidification, contributing to our blog, driving traffic to and creating content in our various social networks. You'd need access to a computer of your own and work mostly virtually, with face meetings bi-weekly: our key crew members are based in Brooklyn, Germantown, and Philadelphia.
The possibility for non-virtual activities will emerge, as we develop partnerships with local organizations in connection with a number of 2009 events.
This internship is for you if you like to do research, to write, are interested in environmental issues and filmmaking, especially distribution, and are comfortable in the web 2.0 world and able to work independently.
Check out our website to learn more about the doc: http://aseachange.net.
This is a volunteer position, open to current students and anyone interested in working with us.
If this sounds appealing or you'd like more information, please contact angela*at*aseachange dot net.

Media Empowerment & The Developing World
Presented by Barefoot Workshops in the B&H Seminar Space.
Barefoot Workshops is a New York City and Los Angeles based not-for-profit, founded by Chandler Griffin in 2004, that offers short, intensive workshops around the world in narrative and documentary filmmaking.
In this two-hour session, Chandler Griffin will provide an overview of Barefootâ€™s role in using media in the developing world to help Civil Society Organizations, Non-Governmental & Governmental Organizations, and individuals make change where it is needed the most. Chandler will discuss the media tools and formats used on the ground, how to conceptualize a workshop and ways to get involved. The goal of this session is to demystify the â€œhow can I do this?â€ and give individuals a chance to learn how Barefoot Workshops does it, ask all the questions and get involved. You will learn that through Barefootâ€™s international workshops, they offer field placements for international students to assist organizations on the ground with media projects that help them to address challenges in their communities. These â€œhybridâ€ workshops result in dynamic learning environments, and open the way for international students to gain valuable field experience, and to learn about issues firsthand. If you are interested in discovering how you can change the world through the power of digital media, come find out how Barefoot can train anyone from vastly different backgrounds and skill levels, how to blend the technical and artistic aspects of storytelling, beginning with the basics of image-making all the way through to post-production to create a â€œsymphonyâ€ of images and sound. Barefoot Workshops hopes that by sharing â€œhow they do itâ€, they will mobilize individuals to get involved and help make a difference with media.
I recommend registering if you want to attend. It's a small space and B&H sent it out to about 30,000 people. I know that 75 people have already registered.
We require you to register under your real name. We can't accept registrations by companies or organisations, only by individuals.
Please join us for upcoming screenings of our documentary, Airplay: The Rise and Fall of Rock Radio.
Our Film Festival Screenings:
Coney Island Film Festival
Sunday, September 28, 2008 – 12:30pmâ€¨
Coney Island Museum, 1208 Surf Ave. 2nd floorâ€¨
Dixie Film Festival (Athens, GA)
Friday, October 3, 2008 â€“ 1:40pm
FLIFF – Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival
Tuesday, October 21, 2008 â€“ 6:00 PM
â€œAirplay: The Rise and Fall of Rock Radio,â€ a new documentary by filmmakers Carolyn Travis and Chris Fox Gilson of Travisty Productions, takes viewers on a high energy journey through rock radioâ€™s impact on American society--from spreading black music to white America in the 1950s to fanning the flames of â€˜60s rebellion to the uncensored personalities and playlists of satellite radio today. Packed with insider stories from iconic deejays of the past fifty years, â€œAirplayâ€ persuasively links the pioneers of music radio to the seismic cultural shifts of integration, the struggle to end the Vietnam War, and the corporatizing of America.
â€œAirplayâ€ chronicles the innocent years of AM radio personalities like Cousin Brucie, Murray the K, Dan Ingram, Jerry Blavat, Casey Kasem, Dick Biondi, Rick Shaw and Wolfman Jack, the payola scandal, Top 40, the rise of progressive FM deejays like San Franciscoâ€™s Tom Donahue, the takeover of radio music by corporate giants and the new voice of rock radio through satellite. Rockinâ€™ with fabulous radio songs by the Kinks, Donna Summer and LL Cool J, and spiced with famous music personalities including Fabian, Lesley Gore, Pat Boone, Grace Slick, David Crosby, Bob Weir from the Grateful Dead, and Ray Manzarek of the Doors, the film takes viewers deep inside the rock radio phenomenon.
Travisty Productions makes documentaries that dig below the surface of pop culture including â€œRock Radio Revolution,â€ â€œRock Jocks: the FM Revolution,â€ and â€œWildwood Days.â€ Their films, which have appeared on PBS Public Television stations nationwide, have garnered numerous awards and were screened by the Museums of Radio and Television in New York and Los Angeles. Travis is a former news producer, Capitol Hill reporter and was an on-air radio personality herself, for 96X-FM in Miami. Gilson, a former Madison Avenue creative director and global-production executive, also authored best-sellers sold to Disney and New Line studios.
so here's the million dollar question, Chris... how the heck did you manage to clear all the rock songs that I assume pop up all through the documentary? this seems to present a very solid case of utilizing Fair Use, but i just want to know if you did that, and then how you dealt with (or plan to deal with) any future claims by record companies...

When the inmates took over Attica prison, or Native Americans stood up to the federal government at Wounded Knee, they asked Kunstler to be their lawyer. It seemed to his daughters that he was at the center of everything important that had ever happened. But Emily and Sarah werenâ€™t around for their fatherâ€™s glory days. The sisters were born in the late 1970s when Kunstler was almost sixty-years-old. When they were growing up, he represented some of the most unpopular members of society: people accused of rape, terrorism, organized crime and cop killing. Was Kunstlerâ€™s later work consistent with the moral code he claimed to live by? In DISTURBING THE UNIVERSE, the filmmakers explore their fatherâ€™s life, from middle-class family man, to movement lawyer, to â€œthe most hated lawyer in America." You can view a short trailer at www.disturbingtheuniverse.com.
Emily Kunstler and Sarah Kunstler (producers/directors) manage Off Center Media (www.off-center.com), a production company that produces documentaries exposing injustices in the criminal justice system.
Emily Kunstler graduated from NYUâ€™s Tisch School of the Arts with a B.F.A. in Film and Video in 2000. She worked as a video producer for Democracy Now!, an independent national television and radio news program that broadcasts on the Pacifica Radio Network and on public access and satellite television. With Off Center Media, Emily has produced, directed and edited a number of short documentaries, including TULIA, TEXAS: SCENES FROM THE DRUG WAR (2003), which won Best Documentary Short at the Woodstock Film Festival, and was instrumental in winning exoneration for thirty-five wrongfully-convicted people.
Sarah Kunstler graduated from Yale University with a B.A. in Photography in 1998 and from Columbia Law School with a J.D. in 2004. She is currently a criminal defense attorney practicing in the Southern District of New York. Along with Emily, she has produced and directed a number of short documentaries, including GETTING THROUGH TO THE PRESIDENT (2004), which has aired on the Sundance Channel, Current TV, and Channel Thirteen/WNET. DISTURBING THE UNIVERSE is the sistersâ€™ first documentary feature.

My name is Cara Kay and I am currently working with a development team for a brand new television network that will launch in April of 2009. Right now, my assignment is to review short form content and submit what I find to our team, who will then decide which content to pass on to our acquisitions director. Our team is scouring the internet in search of ready-made user-submitted content, but we are also being encouraged to look for artists who might like to use our platform as a fresh opportunity to launch their own creativity by customizing content specific to our brand.
Here's what we're looking for:
The duration of each short form submission needs to be between 3-10 minutes long and deal with themes of purpose and identity, social justice and environmentalism, community and relationships, a quest for spirituality, or arts and culture. We are not boxing anybody into a specific production quality standard. We rate the quality of a short according the impact of its message and the creativity in which it is communicated.
Here are examples of some short form styles that represent what our network would be interested in:
Mankind is No Island: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrDxe9gK8Gk&feature=PlayList&p=7A4F257C8DB1F308&index=2
Bright Orange: http://www.good.is/?p=11868
SPIRITUAL / INSPIRATIONAL:
Nick Vujicic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxcrYVq1Dcc
Nooma Today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32EZrJBmAqU&feature=related
ART & CULTURE:
Harmonica Beatbox: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHUuqsSCn5g
1 Week of Art Works: http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1455262/1week_of_art_works/
Please realize that a submission does not guarantee that the project will be picked up by our network. It will be reviewed by our development team first and then, if the team agrees to pursue acquisition of the content, the producer will be contacted. What I can guarantee is this: all fresh content that is made specific to the themes listed above and that has not been viewed through any other media outlet will DEFINITELY make it to the top of our selection list as we want to find new content-creators for our network in order to mark it as a broadcasting entity that's fresh and innovative rather than just another media outlet regurgitating what has already been done.
You can submit your short form(s) via FTP or better yet, email me a link for online viewing. If either option does not work for you, then email me and I will give you an address so you can send me a DVD. When emailing me, use the following Subject Header: Cara Kay Short Form Response.

I am a composer who has scored several feature films, TV adverts, documentaries and other visual media projects. I write music in a range of styles from atmospheric ambient soundscapes to contemporary orchestral and electronica.
I've just added the first in a series of music album downloads specifically composed for film and documentary makers to my website. It's a royalty-free collection meaning that buying the collection grants the user a license to use the music with no further worries about license fees or further payments.
The music is a collection of dark piano and atmospheric background beds that would work well in serious documentaries, horror, drama, thrillers etc. The collection of 15 tracks is 45 minutes long and is available for a limited time for just Â£24.95 (approx. 43$ USD) which is the only amount you need to pay in order to use this music in any of your productions, whether for commercial, non-commercial, broadcast, non-broadcast, festivals etc.
You can find out more or hear short clips here:
The majority of the rest of my music is also available to license for your film depending on the usage. See rates here:
