In reply to Robin Rowley's post on Sat 14 Aug 2010 : I routinely squeeze as much equipment as I can carry on---on. Get yourself a good smallish camera backpack. I have a KATA bag that I love--holds a laptop, a small handycam or a DSLR and a couple of lenses and some external drives--all the cords, etc. and counts as your "purse or briefcase". Then figure out how to pack the rest of what you need into a rolling carry-on. Tripods are what kill the deal. And yes--the baggage police will just make you check--no way around it--if you've got more than 2 carry on items.

Good morning/afternoon, y'all. It's Ken here, spending a typical day editing a short piece for another producer, promoting our upcoming PBS broadcast of "Speaking in Tongues," our last film, working on a proposal and trailer for our current film, "Got Balz?", and juggling the filmmaker/parenting thing. And enjoying life.

Yup, that'd pretty much describe a typical day here, too. Nice to have you aboard the good ship D-Word, Ken, with all the other workaholics.

I just joined, and am hoping to be able to help documentary filmmakers finish their post production sound.
I have mixed about half a dozen documentaries in the last several years, as well as other films.

Hi, I'm Marcia. I work with Ken Schneider, (who introduced himself above) on social issue docs. Our most recent is on PBS this month--a piece about kids growing up bilingual called SPEAKING IN TONGUES. I've spent the past 18 months working on a national engagement campaign for it. And now we're back in line fundraising for a new project. That's the life.

Great to have you here, Marcia. Looks like a great campaign and a powerful film. All the best with your broadcasts.

Hi, I'm Kerrin, and I'm currently working on a documentary about sexism and gender roles as portrayed by the media. I hope this website will help me get ideas for my topic. If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to comment.

Hi there, I'm working for an acclaimed documentary filmmaker and we are looking for interns who can log footage in Santa Monica. The documentary will be released within the next year.
More details to follow once a dialogue is started.
Thanks!

Hello -

I am an expat living in Tel Aviv, Israel working on a satirical documentary exploring the reasons why there will never be peace in Israel between the Israelis and Palestinians. You can watch a clip from it on YouTube here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=279oAQQzTZI

I am also working on a more personal documentary/home video documenting the ups and downs of a young couple (my wife and I) as we have our first baby.

I would love to hear from you. And that's a picture of me.

Welcome to The D-Word, Jason. Some folks here have been known to point a camera in their family's direction, too. Lots of luck with that.

Hello folks! I just joined and am a Virginia based filmmaker working on a few projects! I am excited to join and hopefully get advise about some of the issues coming up w/ some of my pending projects.

Greetings fellow filmmakers. I've been making films since my grandfather handed me the family 8mm camera, decades ago. Worked in television news for eight years, then fully believing that Truth is Stranger Than Fiction, I opened my own documentary production company. Joined the Directors Guild on the basis of my work in network broadcast television. Finished my own feature-length documentaries in the early 1980s :"With Eyes Wide Open", the story of a blind autistic painter, and "D.O.A.", the story of the Sex Pistols' disastrous first and only U.S. tour. Did several projects for National Geographic TV: "Passion for Pythons" and "Out of Control". Currently doing my best to avoid working for crappy fake-reality series on network television by producing docs for ABC and PBS. Open to collaborations. Have gear, will travel.

Glad to have you join us, Ramona and Ron. Welcome.

Hello everyone. I'm a graduate film student in North Carolina currently working on a short, personal documentary about a lesbian couple for whom I donated sperm. Kind of like Lisa Cholodenko's new film, The Kids Are All Right, except real.

Only two more semesters to go before I graduate and begin the transition from student to independent filmmaker. Looking forward to exploring the site!
