That's fine, John. Good to have an enthusiastic Enthusiast.
Hi everyoneâ€¦ I have been a member for a year and I apologize for not presenting myself before.
My name is Juan LeguizamÃ³n; I am a Film Editor.
I was born in Argentina but I lived seven years in Barcelona before moving to New York last year.
A week ago I finished my last work called â€œDreaming Nicaraguaâ€, a feature length documentary directed by Marcelo Bukin about the life and dreams of five kids in Nicaragua. The film was shown last year at IDFA as a working progress.
In 2006 the film â€œAngelâ€™s Fireâ€ won as Best Documentary Short Subject at the IDA Awards, also James Longley's "Iraq in Fragmentsâ€ earned top honors for Feature Length Documentary! (I fell desolate I was working and I couldnâ€™t goâ€¦ But hey!... thatâ€™s life in the dark room).
If someone is interested in working with a reasonable man, obsessed by details and with good sense of humor fell free to contact me. More info at my web: http://www.juanleguizamon.com
I hope to be able to give something back to this great community.
Thanks to all.

In reply to Doug Block's post on Mon 6 Apr 2009 :
I have been looking for a Bilengual editor for my current documentary project especially one from Argentina since the doc concerns Argentina. Post would begin in late July-August. Email me some more contact info, I would love to talk with you if you are available.
Bienvenido Juan, desde Montreal!
Welcome Juan, Tatiana and Dharma. Glad to have you all here.
Hi, my name is Beth and I live near the Smoky Mountains in the Knoxville, Tennessee area. Good to be connected with all of you doc film folks. I kind of got involved accidentally in doc films, when I visited Russia and got an idea for a story about a little town surrounded by a fence (a nuclear city with the last plutonium-producing reactor slated for closure since the end of the Cold War), but I have always loved docs. When I lived in Southern California, I got a global view of the entertainment industry, since I worked in film distribution, for which I am grateful. The internet has changed things so vastly, that now, as i consider options for distribution, I am seriously considering some kind of alternative way to get my film to a niche audience, rather than go a more traditional route, that aims more broadly. I have many questions, and look forward to hearing from some of you to discover your experiences with this wonderful art and craft we call doc film!
