Hi everyone, my name is Patricia. I'm a documentary filmmaker from Holland, based in Rio de Janeiro. Last year I finished my first doc here. Right now I'm trying to get financing for a new project in a women's prison in Rio. We hope to start shooting in March 2010. If you'd like to know more: www.faveladocumentary.com
I'm looking forward to connecting with fellow filmmakers here.

Greetings, Patricia, and a warm welcome to The D-Word. Best of luck with your film, too.

How is everyone doing?

My name is Stefani, and I'm an MFA documentary studies student at Hofstra University. Right now I'm trying to spread the word about the program to prospective students and supporters as a graduate assistant under Skip Blumberg. I'm also a novice at film making so learning about more about the doc industry is a must. Hello!

Hi everyone!

My name is Steve and I love making documentaries. :) I'm a former student of the Academy of Art in San Francisco, CA. Recently, I just finished my debut short film, The Sundowner. I'm excited to develop future projects with my producing partner, we're very open minded and willing to help collaborate. Nice to meet you all!

Hi Doug,

Kristof again (after a while on d-word again) – I am currently studying at the National FIlm+Television School in UK for the 2 year MA Documentary Direction. Currently I am preparing my subject for this MA
dissertation to be written next year. I am thinking of making a paper about personal documentaries and their influence on the family/relatives. Etc (I just started off) and I might like to interview you about it.
Would that be possible, by skype for example? Just let me know, it is not urgent. regards, Kristof

Welcome back, Kristof. Feel free to email me about setting up a skype intv, but won't have time until I'm back from IDFA.

The sidebar is nagging me to introduce myself, which I clumsily forgot to do when I joined last year. It's GREAT to be here and have input from such a distinguished group of pro doc makers. I recently completed a feature-length doc, GIRLS ON THE WALL, which was a co-production with ITVS (great experience working with them). It just premiered in the city where it was shot, at the Chicago International FF, winning a Special Mention jury prize. The site for the film is www.girlsonthewallmovie.com

In the past I've produced and directed many hours of factual programming for A&E, Discovery, MTV, and am excited to bring what I've learned the hard way on the indie doc trail to new television projects.

Thanks to the hosts for providing this great space.

You're welcome, Heather – better late than never...
