I heard about this site from another doc filmmaker. Anyways... I am in the Philippines based in Manila filming a documentary about Rice Trade and Policy. The film is funded by the Fulbright Scholarship. My last film was in South India about the influence of cable tv over in rural areas. here is my website: http://www.fastcloudfilms.com/

Hello D-word,
I came upon this place by the virtue of sitting four feet from the infamous Doug Block himself! How i ended up there was through a chance encounter at a fund raising shindig whereby I went on this big rant to Lori Cheatle (Owner of Hard Working Movies) about how i had given up on ever doing Documentary anymore because frankly i saw no way for me to get into the field and be able to support myself. Lori then explained that she in fact owned a documentary company. I then quickly ate my words and bing bang boom now i am here and am very excited to exchange ideas and get to know people who are actively working in the field! Life is a funny thing and i am happy that it brought me here!

Infamous? Ok, Vanessa, go fetch me a coffee. Oh wait, you're beholden to that slavedriver Lori, not me.

Anyway, you're only halfway in the door here at The D-Word. You need to register for full membership in order to get access to the lion's share of discussion topics. Do it now – that's an order!

Welcome Michael in the third person. Glad to see another Bay Area person.

Good to have you aboard, Michael. But, as Jason suggests, we talk in first person here. It's just that kind of place.

Yes, I caught that. Just a little lazy, this afternoon and cutting and pasting from another bio was much easier.

Good to meet you all!

Hi, D-Word,

I was involved in various ways – writer, editor, narrator, some photography – in a documentary called "Saving Luna," about a lost killer whale who tried to befriend human beings. It had a good theatrical run in Canada and has been showing on CBC at a couple of different lengths. The film has also had some festival success. I've done a bit of writing in the IMAX nature genre – the films "Antarctica" and "Ocean Oasis" – and a narration script for "Under Antarctic Ice" for PBS's Nature. I've also done some writing for National Geographic and Smithsonian magazines over the years, and a few books. I'm relatively new to the documentary world and I find it to be full of truly awe-inspiring individuals whose ability to innovate technologically and creatively is astonishing. As is their ability to survive. There's a lot to learn.
