Hannah Patterson

Hi all,

I'm a UK-based documentary maker and film journalist. I have been working on a documentary about environmental racism in a community living around oil refineries in Texas independently for 5 years, and recently won Best Short Pitch at BRITDOC festival and money towards completion of the film. Myself and the director (photographer Zed Nelson) are trying to get funding to complete post-production to meet our April deadline so I've gone the IndieGoGo route. If anyone has any great blogger leads from people who'd be interested to know more about the topic, I'd gratefully hear them.

More info on the film and a three minute trailer at:

Sarah Switek

Hello, My name is Sarah and I am a senior at Marywood University in Scranton, PA. I am working on a senior project which has developed into a documentary on people living with and/or affected by breast cancer. This will be my first documentary so I am a little unexperienced but I am also very excited. Anyone have any tips?
