Hi Jürgen, funny, I was in Wiesbaden just four days ago, at Bewegte Zeiten. Do you know them?

Anyway, it's nice to see the "Reelisors" slowly trickling in... Welcome!

Hallo Ben. Ich habe von Bewegte Zeiten gehört, aber auch Wiesbaden ist nicht so ganz klein. Ich arbeit seit einigen Jahren mit einem Studio in Mainz zusammen, denn dort kann ich so lange schneiden, wie es nötig ist. Derzeit bereiten wir uns auf den Umzug in eine Scheune vor, damit alles etwas gemütlicher wird. Bon weekend JC

Hi, My name is Faraz Mohammed, I am very new to Documentary film making. and I have recently moved to India from NY and I will be in India for few months. I am looking to meet with some documentary film makers and get some experience. I will appreciate it if anyone can introduce me to people working making documentaries in the Indian subcontinent.

Juergen – If you're referring to the post right before yours, there's no need to use the "in reply to" line. We only do that when linking to earlier posts. Everything else is an ongoing conversation.

Faraz – Welcome. You can connect to other Enthusiasts and Members of The D-Word by using the People link on the top of the page, and then searching for India.

Hello to all. I'm an NYC-based filmmaker, currently making the leap from writing and story editing to directing, and ever so slightly nervous about it. I confess that I generally tend toward the Luddite and non-virtual, but a good friend of mine, who is an active and zealous member, told me D-Word "rocks" – and after trolling around a bit, I'm inclined to agree with him. Looking forward to getting to know you.

Doug Block

Same here, Michelle. We do tend to have a fair share of F2F's in NYC, often built around the Stranger Than Fiction series on Tuesday nights at the IFC Theater. So speak up if you're thinking of going and I'm sure more than a few members will be happy to interact with you non-virtually. In the meantime, welcome aboard.

Hi guys,

I'm working on a feature length doc on the collapse of Bear Stearns and am in post-production on 2 TV docs focusing on male vics of domestic violence as well as an investigative piece on Polygamy. Along w/my little brother, I run Blue Chip Films in CT.

Hey everyone,

I'm usually more of a reader than a poster when it comes to "virtual" communities, but this site seems really awesome. So, in the spirit of full disclosure, I'm a documentary filmmaker currently based in Nashville, TN. I started shooting docs while living abroad in Bolivia during my time in graduate school, and my first film about a network of indigenous filmmakers there had some successes on the festival circuit so I've managed to keep my momentum and continue pursuing stories that interest me. I was the personal videographer for Wynonna Judd for a while, and now I'm doing some work with the Nashville Film Festival. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better, and maybe even crossing the digital divide...
