jay, the classifieds is, in fact, the proper place for this. i
erased your post because you double posted there.
Doug Block
kyoko, i also erased your post because you posted the same thing in
the mentoring room (where it belongs) and i've answered you there.
please, folks, do NOT post the same thing in two different topics.

Hi, all. I've just gotten into video production as a facet of my job
working with a nonprofit. We're using video for internal communication
and are starting a project to produce educational videos for
commercial distribution. The experience has gotten me really excited
about the possibilities of documentary videomaking, and that's why I
ended up here. I live near Durham, NC, the home of the Full Frame
Documentary Festival - will any of you be attending?
Doug Block
not i, but welcome to the d-word, michael. have fun in production
and at the festival. it's a great one.

Hey everybody, I just joined up, thought I'd introduce myself. I'm an independent filmmaker living in Ashland, OR. I've made a couple short films and music videos over the last couple years. If interested, you can watch them at my website:

I'm currently in the post production phase of my first feature, a documentary. I was looking for a good place to come for advice on finishing my film, it seems like this is the place. So you'll probably see me posting some questions in other areas.

I look forward to talking with you.

hey all, i'm new here as well. i'm working on two projects right now
and decided to try and connect with other doc filmmakers. my web sites
are:, and if anyone is willing to
share, i'm really interested in seeing sample funding proposals. also,
i'm interested in meeting people in the chicago area who are working
on documentary projects...
Doug Block
sheesh, luckily we don't get much spam here, but this is what happens
to it. gets immediately erased. so don't bother, folks.

Hallo everybody! I want to introduce my self, Im also new and Im very happy to be in
a place where people share the same passion for documentarys. I'll see you often
around the site . here is my web page:
Erica Ginsberg
Jacqueline, tell us more yourself. Interesting website. Are you
based in Mexico or Germany or elsewhere?
Jacqueline Delaye
Hallo, here I talk a little more about my self:
Im based in Germany since one year an a half in a little city called Bamberg, Bavaria.
for the moment i'm working as a free-lancer but I have to say that in this town is not
so easy to have something to do with video and specially with documentary.
Nevertheless I have the opportunity to work around Germany. My last documentary
was in Hamburg and now I'm in the post production ( long but satisfied work). I travel
to Mexico very often and I try to do it also around Europe. I have to say that my
interest for documentary began mainly because of traveling and because of a feeling
of engagement with our plantet ( and also because is a very funy and creative tool).It
is not easy to choose video as a tool but I find it really efficient when one knows how
to use it.....

jacqeline, you should register for the d-word community of
professionals. this is our public forum, where there's far less give
and take with other doc makers. to join, go to:

I just joined the D-word community. I read a recent article about
this in the IDA and thought it would serve a tremedous help in
my current doc. I will be posting here and hope to find some
creative brain is fried after a year of shooting and planning.

Hi everybody.
I posted my project on the mentor section, but wanted to say thank
you for having such a place to come and seek guidance and
inspiration. I admire those who "do it." You did it. Now I want
to join your ranks.
All my best,
Christopher K.
Doug Block

Hello Everybody - Just joining up here and in the D-Word community and wanted to say hi.

I'm about to go into production on my thesis film for my MFA which will be my first feature
length documentary. I'll be shooting it throughout the Rocky Mountain West for the next
year or so. I've been making short independent documentaries for a number of years
(mostly from the perspective of my anthropology background) and have been supporting
myself as a freelance shooter, final cut pro editor, and dvd author. I have a very strong
connection (and commitment) to Verite style observational filmmaking. I guess it's my
anthro roots.

I'll be poking around here a bit, asking questions and answering others when I feel

All the best,
Doug Block
welcome, zac, and look forward to "seeing" you in the community, as
Octavio Warnock-Graham

My name is Octavio and I am a first year MFA doc. student at City
College in New York City. David Davidson and Andrea Weiss are my two
Doc. professors.

I am starting the pre-production phase of my graduate thesis. I have
many questions, production and structural, and will be seeking help.
So thanks for being here and I look forward to joining your community.

Hello, Octavio. Welcome. Never heard of "pre-production" on a
thesis. Shows you're getting into the film mindset.
