Hi Stephane. We were just talking about your film, ONE HUNDRED METERS AWAY, over in Views on News a few days ago. Welcome.
Hi Jason, hopefully next time I wonÂ´t miss the conversation...
You can still take part in it, StÃ©phane. It's part of the beauty of conversations at The D-Word – they never really end. A warm welcome to you and Emile.
Hello, I am documentary film student in Zagreb, Croatia and I am writing my final school paper under the title "Documentary Film Distribution"..any good thoughts on possible literature adn where and how to find it?
In reply to Sinisha Juricic's post on Fri 10 Jul 2009 :
Assume you're talking about international distribution.
A lot depends on what you mean by literature, and on the exact topic your paper covers.
If it's sales brochures etc, many of these will be online; just google and see what you come up with.
Also find out which person within BBC Worldwide, National Geographic Television International and other large distributors deal with Croatia and ask them for advice on where to find literature.
If you mean books or papers on the distribution business, I haven't ever come across any, though that doesn't mean they don't exist.
Hailing from Oakland, I'm making a strange-but-true documentary about how I encountered a Physics principle by following a string of coincidences to it's illogical conclusion.
51 Birch Street is the most similar documentary I've seen, as it deals with unknown people and private lives but expands those small truths to universally felt emotions and issues of family life and it's mystery.
Looking for collaborators in opening a doc production collective in the Bay Area – anyone know someone who'd be interested?
Hi Julia – i'm sooooooooooo intrigued by your trailer. incredibly excited to see the film that this becomes. welcome.
thank you so much! too bad you are all the way in Chicago – but good for you on the skate flick, that genre is totally different out here
is it too bad that i'm all the way here or too bad that you're all the way there? guess it depends on the criteria.
and i totally agree the skate doc. genre is way different out your way... that's kind of a driving force for my story in a way.
Welcome, Julia. Intriguing premise and rich material, to be sure. Good luck with the film and with your idea for a collective.
