I've been making the documentary film about the Lysistrata
Project.

www.lysistrataproject.com

Since January I have shot or received almost two hundred hours
of video. I have tapes from England, Iceland, Pakistan, Greece,
Italy, Nova Scotia, nearly every state, CA, NM, NY, NJ, AL, AK etc. I
have a reading that was taped in a Kurdish refugee camp and
one from Havana. Celebrities as well as small theatre
companies world-wide turned out in force for this unique event.
Ive cut a ten minute trailer and am looking to bring in a
seasoned producer who has access to money and distribution. I
can be reached at aquapiofilms@aol.com

Hello,

I am new : ) and for some reason I cannot seem to start a new Topic, but can
only post on a topic already started.

My interest in primarily in editing. And the topic I wished to start was
"views on editing"

I wonder about the general view on editors and the editing process , from the
pov of director, producer, writer and general public.

-How relevant is the background of the editor when editing a documentary
compared to a narrative.....what difference if any comes into play..

-How do you feel about the proposal of someone, a random person re-edit a
piece of film that has already been edited and released... do you find it
disrespectful, or inventive, or creative or etc ?

-if was proposed today, during a lively discussion.... that editors and editing is
as simple as plugging 26 alphabets into the word processor and coming up
with a word....

well that's my introduction : ) I am curious......

That's your introduction? Who are you then, Taochou? Are you a
documentary editor yourself? If you are, you should join The D-Word
Community <www.d-word.com/community/> as well, where we have a topic
dedicated to editing.

Only hosts can start new topics. Here in The D-Word Forum, topics
usually come as week-long conferences featuring special guests.

Taochou, I just noticed that you had already joined and introduced
yourself to The D-Word Community. Sorry for confusion.

Taochou - it's not kosher to post the same thing four different
times. Enough. As I said in another thread - we all read nearly
everything - post once - if it's in the wrong place so be it.

Don't waste my precious time.

Please calm down, Robert. This is the public forum, and the posting
above was Tachou's first-ever, not an additional one.

Like we say, The D-Word is a very warm and welcoming place ;-)

This is actually kind of out of character for us - Robert's just a
little pre-menstrual today ;-) But the point is a good one for all --
there's never a need to post the same thing twice in more than one
topic. This is more a matter for The D-Word Community rather than the
Forum, where we only have a few topics open, but still...

Yikes sorry Robert, my apologies. I was quite confused. I had posted then
received a note saying I had posted it in the wrong place and that it should be
at topic .25, which then I did except I made a mistake of posting it at .21 by
clicking on the final cut pro link instead and then received a comment saying it
should be in .25 :) so you see I thought I was supposed to re-post it. You
probably enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed re-posting it.
