Not sure which post you're referring to, Natalia. If you go to it and click on the blue "Reply to this post" arrow above it, then re-post what specifically you want me to hide, I can do something about it.

Hi guys. I've been absent from this site for a year or so and am back for more.
The process of making and showing Three Soldiers was intense. Spending time with families in mourning, learning about documentary distribution, raising a family and oh yeah, that damn job.
Thank goodness I woke up last month knowing what my next project will be. I'm relieved – wasn't sure for a while whether there would be a next project. Nice to come back to this site and find the friendly banter and invaluable inspiration.

Hi all:
I'm a new member here. NYC based doc filmmaker. Produced and directed over 16 short docs for television and science and tech vids for the web.
Currently working on a feature doc about screenwriting guru Robert McKee.
http://seminarthemovie.com/. Reel of stuff: http://bradleyglenn.com/.

I have a short doc (10-25 (?) mins, approx)I'm looking for an NYC based FCP editor for, strong story editor. Also, looking to be like a sponge and learn everything all of you have to offer. Thanks.

Welcome, Bradley. I'm fascinated by McKee. Haven't taken his workshop but I highly respect his book, Story. Enjoyed your trailer, keep us posted on how it's coming along.

Welcome Bradley. Sounds like a tough project to be working on McKee's "Story"! Good luck with that.

Hello to all at the big D, my name is Emile Guertin, I am an editor of several years cutting mainly for Discovery and NatGeo, but am now turning my attention to directing my long-planned indie doc about faith in Manila, Philippines.

It's a character driven portrait of several Filipinos and how they reconcile their fate with the divine. It's my first doc as director, but as a strong storytelling editor, it feels like a natural progression for me to be behind the camera.

My initial reason for joining D-Word is to seek creative support and advice as I venture down a path I have not trodden before! Shooting in a couple of months.

Influences on me Joseph Campbell, Karen Armstrong, James Longley... and others.

Currently based in Sai Gon, Viet Nam, originally from London, UK.
