Thanks, Jayasri. Nice to hear from you again and hope you'll find a
little spare time to join us more often on The D-Word Community.

Lots of people have expressed their appreciation for the conference.
We'll definitely try to do more like it in the future (though Al and
Susan are one-of-a-kind).

Hi Doug and Jayasri!

I am studying in Dundee, a little town about a 30 minutes drive away
from the capital, Edinburgh. As for the Dance documentry, I am
directing a documentry about the bengali community here in dundee,
and the dance school that has arisen from it. I'm looking forward to
producing and directing it, as this is my first major project , and I
will be glad to recieve any comments or tips!

I was in Edinburgh many years ago but never made it as far as
Dundee. I look forward to seeing your doc, Syeda. I am sure your
University is putting you in touch with the doc community in the
U.K. You are lucky to have a lot of public support over there. I
have relatives in England and Wales--may be useful when the time
comes for distribution. Have you seen a Canadian doc called "Little
Red Dot" made by a South Asian woman? Not directly related to your
subject, but I just like the tone and style. I know she has a
website for it--see if you can take a look. Keep us posted on your
progress.

Dundee 30 minutes away from Edinburgh?? Must be a different Scotland ;-)

Syeda, any time you have a specific question just ask us in The
Mentoring Room. Good luck with your shooting.

Hi

My name is David Mowbray and I lead two related lives. After a career
as a science/environment journalist for the Canadian Broadcasting
Corporation (CBC) I moved into making and telling stories about
international development issues – especially science and environment
related in the worlds poorest countries. I have made one hour-long
documentary and many shorts. One -- "White Plague" -- was a finalist
in the educational category at the Yorkton festival a few years ago.
So my first life is as a filmmaker with my own small company based in
Canada called Baobab Productions Inc. My second life is as the Head
of Communications and Information at the International Institute of
Tropical Agriculture based in Ibadan, Nigeria, from where I am
writing this note. You can learn more about both my lives at:
www.baobab.net and www.iita.org (but only if you are interested :-))

Regards to all

Hi David. I sound like a broken record, but you (or any of the other
folks who've signed in here and have professional experience in the
doc field) are welcome to join The D-Word Community:

This is one of our public Forums, dedicated to special conferences
mainly.

Hello,
My name is Hayley and I am a film, tv and theatre student from York
in England. I'm currently working on two super 8 films i have shot
and have made other amateur digital doc and drama projcts in the
past. Im really only starting out right now, but feel this site could
be a great way to learn new things from more experienced people and
hopefully meet some likeminded souls. Im actually in the states
right now on student exchange and have been making a doc on P-Town in
Cape Cod, a fascinating corner of earth if you dont know it. I have
posted a question or invitation rather to anyone who knows or has any
opinions on Nick Broomfield's work as I am compliing a
biography/analysis of his work as it is a personal favourite to me.
I would grately appreciate hints on where to research and open
comments and opinions.

Looking forward to conversing soon...
Hayley x
