Hello all,

Just wanted to say a quick hello. I was looking up the previous projects of an editor and in googling I came upon the d-word. I can't believe I haven't been here before; this looks amazing!

I am a documentary editor myself having worked on two different socially conscious projects in the past few years. (When I Came Home & Skid Row.) I learned a lot from working on them and can't wait for the next feature length project. Check out the links below if you wish and hello again!

Hi Brendan, we're delighted to have you on board.

Having been busy for a couple of days, I've just been swept away by a flood of new members here. What's happening?

Thanks Ben. I'm just getting acclimated to the site. This is really a cool thing; I love talking to other documentary people. While I was in New York on a project I found myself surrounded by a ton of documentary professionals, but in Los Angeles I'm a little out of the loop. Do you have any advice or particular topics you think I should check out to interact with West Coast doc people?

Oh wow, I just noticed that one of your hosts Doug Block worked on Esther Robinson's film about her uncle Danny and the Warhol factory. Esther was sooooo helpful on a previous project and we worked closely with her and her editor Shannon. I guess it truly is a small world...

Welcome to all these new faces to D-Word. Look around and stay awhile. And a special shout out to Suree. I was the curator of the Council on Foundations Film Festival last year and your film was one of the selected films. I was very impressed by the degree of outreach you had already achieved with the film to non-traditional audiences and still talk about it with filmmakers who are just starting out. Hope you'll share some of your experiences maybe in the Distribution Topic.

Brendan, good to have you here. Esther is one of my best friends and we go way back – she helped produce my doc Home Page, for which I created a running blog back in 1996 called The D-Word. In late 1999, when the film's distribution life started to peter out, The D-Word took a different turn . Funny how it all works out and, yes, it is a pretty small world.
