Hi everyone! Am a Canadian documentary filmmaker and freelance journalist, currently based out of Liberia, West Africa (where I've worked for much of the past three years). Although the majority of my film work has included pieces commissioned by NGOs, I have also completed a couple of independent documentaries, and am currently working on a third – a short to be filmed in Monrovia next month.

As I often work solo or with a small crew, I've had experience in most areas of production and post-production – and currently shoot with a couple of Sony HVR-A1s and edit with FCP. Working across West Africa and mainly in post-conflict countries, I'm used to dealing with somewhat difficult filming conditions – charging cameras off generators or car batteries, building makeshift 'sound rooms' in closets, cursing humidity's effects on electronics, etc. As you might guess, I don't have access to a lot of fellow filmmakers where I am, so I'm very excited to be able to join this community, and look forward to following along with the discussions. And of course if anyone is keen on projects in my part of the world, would always love to hear from you!

Welcome, Arwen! Lucky you to be in Africa. I love the nature and the colors there (more the plants part of nature than the insects part though!)

I am new to this forum. I have been producing segments on the kiteboarding community in New England and I am looking for help in reaching a Cable Television audience with these engaging films. Also I enjoy editing other people's films, my portfolio can be viewed at DunoyerFilms.com

Hi my name is Ferdinand Casido. I live in the SF Bay Area. I'm a currently working as a producer on my first Documentary Feature called "Two Blind to Ride" which is about two blind adventurers cycling their way from Argentina to Alaska. Along the way they'll stop over at blind schools to tell their story.

Our indiegogo campaign:

This looks like a great website for networking, getting advice and finding resources.

I am already in love with this project, Ferdinand. Looks like a great human story to be told :)
