Christina Heller

Hello everyone!

I'm a documentary filmmaker currently located in my hometown of Reading, PA. For the past year and a half, I've been living in New Hampshire creating short documentaries about the state during the primaries and election. It was there I stumbled upon the topic for my first feature doc – The Free State Project, a modern pilgrimage to New Hampshire by libertarians from around the U.S., intending to influence local and state policy in the hopes of creating a libertarian utopia inside the U.S.

My doc follows four individuals associated with the Free State Project– Two as they are moving to New Hampshire and two who already reside as members of FSP. They all are wonderfully different and bring different dimensions to this film of passionate characters.

We've finished filming, and I'm back in Reading catching up with old friends and editing this project. I plan to move out to L.A. by the end of the year. Can't wait to get to know all of you and learn from your expertise!

A warm welcome to The D-Word, Christina. My guess is you look at your libertarian subjects objectively, but I'm curious if your personal politics differs a great deal. If so, almost always a fascinating tension. Feel free to talk more about the film in the Works in Progress topic.

Hiya! I'm just starting to get back into digital vid. filming and this looked like a great site. I am trying to put together a short doc. and am always looking for advice and tips that can save me time, money and headaches but not always in that order. Short of my own limited experience I don't really have anyone locally to ask about stuff so, here I am. I am very interested in what others have accomplished on shoestring budgets. I've only signed up about an hour ago and have already found some great resources. Thank you! I'm not much of a social butterfly or big blogger type but if someone is interested what little experience I've had, I am willing to share. Then again this may be my last post... Thanks for such a great site BTW. I know it takes a ton of effort for a thing like this to run. Know that your work is greatly appreciated!
Best regards, Jay

Geez, Jay, always thought Cape Coral was a hotbed of documentary activity. Another illusion shattered, but welcome anyway.

Hi all, I'm a sometime filmmaker from Gibraltar, now languishing in the World of Extreme Sports, based in Munich...pays the bills though huh!

Doug Block

Ah, Munich... perhaps then you know Munich's most famous online export, Mr. Ben Kempas? If not, you'll meet him here soon enough. And welcome to The D-Word, Sergio, where we languish 24/7.

Ben Kempas

Doug, stop it...

Sergio, a big welcome from Munich to Glonn! How did you end up there?`:-)
