Pablo, first of all, your spelling is very good.

I think part of your questions overlaps with what Steve just asked
Jan Rofekamp in {LINK NOT IMPORTED}. Maybe you can wait for Jan's response there
and then ask your additional questions.

I also recommend having a look into {LINK NOT IMPORTED} where you
will find the right topics for Fundraising, Legal Issues, Marketing,
and Distribution.

Pablo, your situation is exactly why The D-Word Community was created
in the first place. I live in New York City and, believe it or not, I
often feel the same way as you-- that I might as well be on a desert
island as far as feeling connected to my peers.

So, by all means, come join us in the community.

Thank you Doug. I´ve already submited the application form. Some
mornings I wake up, look in to the mirror and say to myself: Are you
crazy or what?...
I hope I´m accepted at the lonely riders neighbourdhood. See you
there.

Hello, all.

I'm a first-time documentary maker out of Caracas, Venezuela.
Journalism pays the bills, film-making gobbles-up whatever is left
over. My first film is called "Searching for the Revolution", on our
new leftist government's plans for massive land redistribution to the
poor.

My first brush with the D-Word came through reading Jan Rofekamp's
thorough but brutal marketing guide...and I'm still working through
the grieving process that horrible, traumatic experience induces. I
think I'm past denial ("it can't be...it can't be that hard to sell
my film"), past anger ("those bloody TV people are sucking our blood
dry!"), currently wallowing in self-blame ("what the hell was I
thinking embarking on this project without a clear understanding of
the market?!?") and still a few days away from acceptance.

Seriously, though, anyone looking to found a shell-shock victims'
support circles from having read that article, send me an email...
