Thanks, Elissa! Looking forward to your thoughts.

Is Missed Connections the same that played last year at WSFF? (methinks)
Hi Niam. Nope, I didn't enter it into any festivals. I'd love to see the one you're speaking of.
Their film links from last year aren't working anymore, but this is a one liner I found about the film:
â€œMissed Connections,â€ by Mary Robertson â€” On Craigslistâ€™s â€œMissed Connectionsâ€ forum, those who regret their timidity make appeals to the Ones Who Got Away.
Wow! Very similar indeed... Now I REALLY want to see it. :)
My name is Mike Byhoff and I am working for a start-up that will be producing documentaries, as well as reaching out to people across the world and paying them to shoot short (4-10 minute) documentaries around the world.
I heard about this place at the Vimeofest Awards this past weekend, and it seems like an awesome resource.
I'm wondering what the best way is to go about finding the right kind of documentary filmmakers to make pieces for this new site?
i'm not sure if you have access to the 'people' tab above (because you are an enthusiast instead of professional right now), but you can find filmmakers by location using that tool... and if the moderators grant you 'professional' status, you'll have access to the 'professional classifieds' where you can post about opportunities that your group is presenting to filmmakers... both are good options.
Thanks Riley. I applied for professional status yesterday, but since our website is in closed Beta I had to show some projects we're working on by uploading to YouTube. I hope I can get a lot of people some good, meaningful work with fair pay.
My name is Bob. I am a retired computer specialist who enjoys video and still photography as a hobby. I also enjoy watching movies and documentaries and reading about how they are made. I have uploaded a few Youtube videos on my hobbies of astro-photography and microscopy. I'm also an amateur musician and record music with a friend about once a week.
Bob and Michael, welcome to The D-Word.
Michael, you've got an interesting venture – D-Worders certainly appreciate meaningful work with fair pay! You're very welcome to post in the Professional Classifieds and to reach a wider audience the Public Classifieds as well. However please note that we do not approve of systematic mining of the database – not saying you would do this, but just to warn that D-Worders are allergic to unsolicited emails!
