Steven "Picture" Kennedy?
Steve Kennedy, Your Video Remedy?
James, Doug, Andy: Thanks for those greetings and all those good words. I'm actually writing from True/False FF, where "Tongzhi in Love" is playing. We were short-listed for the Academy Awards, so we had a v. good shot at a nomination (8 films on the shortlist) but we didn't make the cut. now we're sending around to FF. The 30 minute length makes that hard. I love that length – as a viewer, I love watching shorter work, esp for documentary – but to market it is really tough.
Market it? You pick up the phone and say "Sheila darling, how are ya?"
hi my name is Jack and i am living in israel and going to try to work on ideas for making docs here and about this area. i hope it all works out and hope to make a doc on skydiving as well.
Welcome to The D-Word, Jack and Robin.
Ditto. Good to have you both here.
My name is Brett Story, I'm a documentary filmmaker and journalist recently relocated to brooklyn from montreal. I'm currently working on a film about the paralysis of petrochemical workers in an industrial city south of Toronto in response to a major epidemic of cancers – a study, really, in post-industrialization and alienation.... I'm also working on a series of experimental super8 docs about cities. some of them are up at www.brettstory.blip.tv. anyway, great to be here, and looking forward to getting to know the forum....
