I'm a doc.filmmaker/photographer working as an independent with some
work run on local PBS.

To Stephanie, You can do it all by yourself but maybe not
simultaneously. It helps to get a pro. on sound or camera. Good
luck. /HS

Therese, are you still kicking around? I checked out your website
today and read your Sundance journal...but you've left it hanging!
It's very funny stuff and I'd love for you to let us know when you've
posted more. It also sounds like your doc is going to be very
interesting, with a definite capacity for humour.

I am a former relief worker who has, over the last 3 years, decided
to blend my development experiences and expertise with my keen
interest in sensitively portraying personal stories to address
international issues with a creatively urban appeal.

Currently, I'm producing and directing "Settling in Seattle" which is
a one-hour doc that highlights the stories of four refugee youth from
the Sudan, Kosovo, Vietnam and Iraq who have resettled in the Seattle
area. The film is part of a larger outreach campaign intended to
promote youth participation and the use of film/video, music and
multimedia as a means to educate the public about refugee issues in
the US for World Refugee Day. Politically, the project highlights
the work of the US resettlement program and how deeply it was
affected by the events of September 11th.

I'm hoping to use this forum to get feedback on the production and
promotional process of this film b/c I am already finding it a
challenge to integrate the "pressing needs" of the resettlement
community wihtout sacrificing the artistic merit of the film (meaning
not coming across too journalistic.) I'd appreciate and welcome your
inputs.

For those of you who are interested, more info about the project can
be found at www.refugeeyouthinamerica.com. Also, if you are in New
York, we are having an event on Feb 2nd that you are welcome to
attend. More info about the event is at
www.refugeeyouthinamerica.com/event.html.

Looking forward to challenging discussions with you all...

Howdy, Keith. Make sure you use "autowrap" so you don't get one
looooong sentence.

I did...for some reason the auto-wrap was not applied to my post.
