'ello 'ello to all!
my name is ben detalle, and im am currently in the daunting/exciting (guess that depends on the days) process of editing my first documentary short. its called "der kindergarten",shot it here in berlin, about a group of kids in an integration kindergarten. basically it deals with themes of learning in young children and how they grow within their surroundings.
im very excited to communicate with you all, and hopefully learn from some of your experiences.
if ever any of you are in berlin, drop me a line!
all the best,
ben

Hey everybody,

After a few years writing/producing mostly a series of local oral history shorts and museum installation videos, I am back pushing that big rock called the long format documentary up that hill. I just returned from a seven-day shoot in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and am cutting a works-in-progress trailer.

I live on an island, where most of my friends are carpenters or house painters or some other job that caters to the idle rich. So it is easy to get isolated from other people who have chosen to chase stories. looking forward to some back and forth.

Hi Ya'll
Looking forward to getting to know the D-Word community and after hearing about the late night fun at Full Frame this year... meeting other D-Worders in the future! I just wish I had joined years ago. Now that I've done some festival and many grassroots screenings of my documentary film LOVE LIVED ON DEATH ROW (I directed/edited/produced), I'm now hoping that some of you can give me guidance and advice as I venture into national and foreign markets & DVD sales.

I'm a 2005 graduate of the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University certificate program and soon after started production on LOVE LIVED. I laugh that it's hi-jacked my life the last few years, but it's also led to amazing experiences and meeting so many remarkable people. You can see a trailer & more about the film at www.lovelivedondeathrow.com. It's about forgiveness, healing, restorative justice and the capital punishment system. I also program a local film series and I'm always looking for regional work (NC connections is the theme.)

Thanks for such a great forum,
Linda

Great to have you here, Linda. Forget Full Frame, it's late night fun 24/7 here at The D-Word. After years of hanging out on death row, I bet you could use a little fun, too.

Welcome, Adrian. From my informal calculation, you posted from LA around 5:30am your time. Very impressive. You already understand that The D-Word is either the first or last thing you should do every day (or both!)

Anyway, good luck with your rise to mogulhood and glad to have you aboard.
