Thanks, Ben.
I'm not sure how to introduce myself there. Under which thread?

Dan - welcome to The D-Word. As you've also joined our private
filmmaker conference {LINK NOT IMPORTED}, you should
introduce
yourself over there as well.

Dan - It's "Introduce Yourself" as well. Try
{LINK NOT IMPORTED}.

Greetings one and all ...

I'm a computer programmer, actor, musician, philosopher, who got tired of arguing
with drummers and wanted a way better way to express how I think ...

So I started doing stuff like this:

... and now I'd like to find a way to do more.

Nice stuff, Charlie. You're on to something interesting. Now if
only broadband would begin to fulfill its promise.

Anyway, welcome to The D-Word.

Thanks!

Lot's of work, making these "D-Words", it's especially a problem if
you work on your own (Which I sort of have to do, since it's very
expensive to keep any sort of crew waiting while I'm trying out a new
way to explain an Epistemological concept in front of the camera) ...

I originally thought that being a guy who can "do it all" would be a
big benefit ... and it certainly is for getting things done waaaaay
low budget ... I mean I wrote & recorded the music, the script, shot
the video, acted, did the voice-overs, edited the video, color
corrected and was moving onto audio post ... but now it seems the
powers that be don't believe such a thing is possible ...

Apparently I'm too independent to get any help as an independent!

How the Gods of Irony mock me :(

Oops, Charlie, we had an internal mix-up and accidentally turned down
your request to join. Please hang in there and we'll try to
straighten it out today.

Hello Everyone!

It's great to have found this D-world (I stumbled upon a link on
the AIVF web site)! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone soon
at the Community, but first I'm going to take a tour of this lovely
cyber land. See you all in a minute,
Erika

Welcome, Erka. I was on the AIVF board until this year so I'm happy
to know people are finding us from there. It's a great organization!

We have been involved with the documentary for the past 25 years. I
produce, direct and shoot while Neelima is the executive producer,
researcher and the writer. We both come from the field of journalism
of the 70s, she from print journalism and I began with TV News. since
the early 80s we have just been doing documentaries. We are
available on our web site www.spotfilms.net. Working on documentaries
from India does have some advantages and a lot of disadvantages too.
But on the whole we feel satisfied with what we have done so far and
we continue to look for new projects all the time. I am very keen to
participate in the "Art of shooting of documentary" discussion.
