Hi, Raffaele – I really liked your film, Hair India. Very fantastic work.

Hi Everyone!

My name's Kyle. I'm just finishing a rough cut and teaser for a documentary I've been working on for 2+ years about a hobo legend who never worked a day in his life. I've produced and directed a number of shorts for different outlets in the past and worked as an associate producer on the documentary film "You Think You Really Know Me" about musician Gary Wilson.

I'm glad to meet you all. I've heard a lot of good things about this site from colleagues! Thanks for having me.

Looking forward,

Kyle

Hello Raffaele and Kyle,

I must warn you as a relatively new D-Worder myself....this place is Extremely Addictive. You'll love it.

Yup, we're kind of like virtual heroin. Welcome and watch your veins.

Hey guys!

My name is Kirsten and I'm a fairly new documentary filmmaker but I'm very eager to learn as much as I can. I'm currently in post production on a documentary about a Paralympic swimmer with cerebral palsy. I'm also in pre production for a documentary I'm co-directing on self-harm.

I can't wait to become addicted to this site. Virtual heroin sounds awesome.

Welcome, Kirsten. The real addicts are those who qualify for full membership – and it sounds like you do. We await you with open needles.

Golly gee. For some reason that does not sound so fantastic.

Thanks Nick! I've quickly gotten hooked on this D-Word drug, but I'm with Graeme in needing to remember to get back to actually finishing my film – so I can put all this good advice and inspiration to good use! =)

Hi Raffaele and Kyle. Nice to see you here.
Hey Raffaele, did you submit you film to Brisbane Festival? I didn't get to see it at Full Frame unfortunately.

Hello everyone !

I'm an independent documentary filmmaker, producer, writer and editor (and a few other things). My first language is French. My latest film "L'encerclement РLa d̩mocratie dans les rets du n̩oolib̩ralisme" ("Encirclement РNeo-Liberalism Ensnares Democracy") has had it's world premiere at Rencontres internationales du documentaire de Montr̩al (RIDM) in 2008 and it's international premiere in this year's Berlinale Forum section. It was released theatrically in Montr̩al (Qu̩bec, Canada) last February and it's currently touring a few festivals: BAFICI, Visions du r̩el, IndieLisboa, Documenta Madrid, Hot Docs, Viennale, Oslo International Film Festival, Ghent Film Festival, etc. I've been awarded a M. Joan Chalmers Award (Best Canadian documentary) for my first film "Trop c'est assez" ("Too Much Is Enough") and a Pierre and Yolande Perrault Award (Best emerging documentary filmmaker) at this year's Rendez-vous du cin̩ma qu̩b̩cois for "Encirclement".

I've just found out about D-Word – which surely looks like a nice place to meet doc people and exchange – through Hot Docs.

Cheers!

Welcome Mohammad and Richard. Always a pleasure to have diverse international perspectives.

You should both consider applying for full membership, which will give you access to all the professional topics. It's free, but not automatic.

Doug Block

Hello and a warm welcome to you both, Mohammad and Richard. Mohammad, as Marj suggests (and Richard has already done), do apply for full membership. You'll get to take part in many more discussion topics.

Hello, documentary filmmakers. I'm Churchill Roberts, Co-director of the Documentary Institute at the University of Florida. In September, the Independent Magazine listed the Documentary Institute as one of the 10 best documentary programs in the country. But now, the dean of my college wants to eliminate it. Please help by signing the petition below. IDA distributed this information yesterday. Thanks for your help. Let me know if you have any questions. Churchill clrobert@ufl.edu

Save the University of Florida Documentary Institute!

As some of you might be aware, the College of Journalism and Communications at the University of Florida is planning to terminate The Documentary Institute, a highly respected graduate program that has helped launch hundreds of careers in the documentary field. In an era where the fields of journalism and communications are in a state of flux at best and turmoil at worst, the documentary form is a thriving medium for exploring contemporary issues. A documentary training program such as The Documentary Institute is vital to the nonfiction media-making community.

Please show your support for The Documentary Institute. Let the University of Florida know where you stand by signing this petition:

Hey folks! Checking myself in here. I'm not exactly making a documentary but I will need all the help I can get and this looks like a great way to get connected to the people in the know. I look forward to hearing from you all!

Hello everyone! My name is Sara, I am an undergraduate student in California. I have done some short film pieces and audio pieces before in the past, and now I'm working on my first feature film. I look forward to "meeting" each of you!

Hello to all. I've actually been a member of this forum for a number of years, although I've never posted (feels like I'm taking a very big step right now..) I do want to congratulate you on creating such a wonderful space – I find it an incredibly useful resource for all things technical, but most importantly motivational. Doc filmmaking gets a bit lonely at times and it's nice to know there's a whole lot of people out there who've been down that road..

I've been working on a project called Cinema Komunisto for a couple of years now (it's been a long and interrupted development and shooting process), and have finally reached the editing stage, so I've re-located temporarily to Los Angeles for the edit. Would love to meet fellow documentary filmmakers in a town that doesn't seem to have much time for that world...

Hi I'm Jeremy, I'm embarking a new project that might interest some of you – it's called Docummunity and is trying to be the first feature length documentary that's been created entirely from user generated content.
We're launching the web site in 6 weeks and are trying to get content that centers around the theme of money – for more information got to www.docummunity.com or email me on jeremy@portablefilmfestival.com

Cheers!

Welcome, Jeremy. Sounds like a great project, definitely of interest to us since we do collaborative projects ourselves from time to time.

And Mila, great to have you come out from the shadows and into the sunshine and light, at last. Not so terrifying after all, is it?
