Hello All,

I'm the writer of FUEL. Winner of the Audience award for best documentary at Sundance 2008 and nominated for the 2009 WGA best documentary screenplay award. I'm working on a new doc about Benazir Bhutto. I'm looking for a very good archival footage person. Any suggestions?

Nice to have you here, Johnny. Ditto what Ben said.

Hi,

I have just finished up a trailer for my new film 'Drying For Freedom'. Its an environmentaly minded documentary focusing on the banning of CLOTHESLINES in millions of communities across America. That probably sounds somewhat obscure but you would be surpised what lies behind this story.

We are trying to drum up as much support/ feedback as possible so if you fancied checking out the trailer and becoming a fan via facebook please do. This is a low budget independent film that is still being made.

Feedback is very welcome!

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone out there might be interested in coming out to South India to help me with a doc that I'm developing/ shooting on the international eco/ spiritual community of Auroville. I'll be here for the next 1-2 years and would be interested in working closely with someone who is good with ideas and people. I can't really offer much in the way of payment..... I'll rent the house and keep it running. I'll be in Montreal for late November in the event that anyone is interested in meeting up to discuss and explore options.

Looking forward......

Hello D-word

I'm Jane Taylor and currently studying an MA at the University of Salford, Manchester, UK in Television Documentary Production.

I am at the stage now where I am conquering my dissertation. I got extremely inspired by the Documentary Campus event at the Manchester Town hall – Leaner Meaner and Keener, and have based my dissertation on the effect the internet has on documentary.

I would really appreciate some opinions, experiences and professional advice on this subject. How the internet plays a part in documentary distribution in a good way and bad way? advantages and disadvantages? What's the future? How it has helped you business or film? Everything and anything please...

I am very new to this forum so I will try and set up a topic and all feedback will be highly appreciated.

Many Thanks,

Jane

Welcome, Jane. Unfortunately, you can't set up a new topic yourself, only us all-seeing, all-powerful hosts can. So you may want to ask that again in the Mentoring topic.

Jonathan, you should be posting that in the Classifieds topics. This is merely for introductions and greetings.
