Welcome, Adam. Glad to have you on board. Adam and I spend far too much time together in various IDA meetings and I can tell you that he's completely genuine when he asks for honest feedback, so I hope folks will jump in. Adam, the party's already started in Marketing and Distribution

Great to have you here, Adam. Hope you'll leap right into the discussions.

In reply to Adam Chapnick's post on Thu 28 May 2009 :

Spinning a basketball on my finger has always been a great mystery to me since junior high school. I tried and tried and never could get it. The guys who could were always the coolest cats around. What's the secret? If I fly to LA will you teach me? My life would then be complete.

A colleague recently enthused to me how singing up for the D Word had changed her life and I had to join. With that endorsement, how could I not?! I've been researching, writing and directing (and occasionally co-producing) documentaries and non-fiction television since 1994. My partner and I co-own Picture This Productions (www.picturethis.ca) These days we are developing some one off documentary films and limited doc series, while also working on corporate projects and even the occasional fiction piece. I'm coming back slowly to the world of documentary activism and social engagement after five years of trying to balance just getting a basic level of work accomplished while raising two toddlers. It felt- and sometimes still does- like there are never enough hours in the day for it all, but I was finding that I really missed being part of the bigger documentary community. That all said, I am so looking forward to reading through some back posts and connecting up with the amazing people around the world I see listed on this site!

Welcome, Maureen. Yes, there are never enough hours in the day, and it's getting worse now that you're adding The D-Word to your daily routines...

Just remember your priorities, Maureen, and you'll be okay. D-Word first, kids second...

Right. Got that straight. Now if I can just get them to write up funding applications for me, this time thing would all balance out. Oh wait- first they have to learn how to write...

Thanks for the welcome!
