Peg Diaz

Hi all. My name is Peg Diaz. I have been documenting life with a still camera and am currently working on my first video project. I look forward to learning from all of you and eventually giving back down the road. I am applying for a grant for partial funding of the documentary and have a question about a "letter of interest". I need to submit a letter from a broadcaster who might be interested in airing the film. Can anyone recommend the best way to do this.

Jalyn, since you work at PBS, perhaps you have a suggestion? I sent a request to the local PBS station but have not heard back.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome to The D-Word, Tom. I was trying to watch your OUT OF BALANCE trailer but only got sound, no picture. Not sure whether that's a problem at my end or yours...

Hi, All-
I'm Hima. Working on a production grant that's due next wk but in full procrastination mode. I guess this is "research" right now so it's not entirely off track....

Welcome to The D-Word, Hima, where there's always a grant due on the horizon and always like-minded folks to procrastinate with.

Hi everyone I'm Eva ~ new to this world alittle... am about to embark on my first documentary, as a co-director for an observational feature length doc covering issues around a couple who have had just had a baby but due to their medical difficulties have been denied access. I am new to the game and already feel I am walking on eggshells!Great to learn about this place though! I think I will find most useful.
