Nice to have you here, Kate, and to offer the benefit of your knowledge. Hope you'll participate on other topics, as well.
Been meaning to join for a while now and with much urging from Josh Weinstein (Flying on One Engine). Well the day has finally come! I look forward to exploring the site and following conversations. My partner David Redmon and I make documentaries (Mardi Gras: Made in China, Intimidad, Kamp Katrina and Invisible Girlfriend).
A year and a half ago we started the distribution branch of our production company Carnivalesque Films. Carnivalesque Films now distributes all of our productions and also other gems including, Orphans, Manhattan, KS, Holy Modal Rounders: Bound to Lose, The New Year Parade, and Woodpecker.
Looking forward to discussing issues and connecting with other documentary folks!
Welcome to The D-Word, Ashley. Very curious to hear more about your experiences with Carnivalesque. Has it been a huge time suck? Has it been more difficult or more rewarding than you anticipated? Feel free to fill us in more in the Marketing and Distribution topic.
In reply to Carlo Brescia's post on Thu 3 Dec 2009 :
Welcome/Buenvenido Carlo – I will be passing through the Cordillera Blanca Sunday! Can I see you or make guest appearance in your movie? (Enroute to Llamellin for the week-long fiesta as seen in that Soy Andina movie). D-WORDERS – Carlo is really talented and prolific, great to have him here
We're happy he's here, too, Mitch. Now encourage him to register as a full member.
I'm originally from LA but have spent the last four years in Taiwan where we shot three Asian/US based documentaries. Now, I'm in San Francisco, working on the post production for these films.
We're actually looking for editors or assistant editors (PAID) to work on these right now. They must be bi-lingual and have feature documentary experience.
Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if interested.
And, nice to meet everyone! This looks like a really great website for documentary makers!
It is, JD. And it's even greater when you sign up as a full member and have access to all the discussion topics. Meanwhile, welcome...
My name is Ben, I am a student at the School of Visual Arts. I am in their new program in the Social Documentary department. Looking forward to meet and work with y'all. Seems like a great crowd. I am living in NYC, so if any of you need a hand I would love to do what I can.
Welcome to The D-Word, Ben. Curious what you think of the SVA program. Heard good things but it would be good to hear from someone directly involved.
I'm Kevin Tostado and I'm currently producing and directing "Under the Boardwalk", a documentary about the game of MONOPOLY, the people who play it, and how it has become a worldwide phenomenon over the last 75 years. You can watch a trailer and find out more about the film at http://MonopolyDocumentary.com or follow us on Twitter at http://twitter.com/MonopolyDoc
