Hello! Been hearing about the D-word for a while and glad to have joined up. Let’s see… I’m in the middle of directing a project on physical perfection – it’s a series of shorts/segments that will be combined to be a feature. Three segments are finished: Wet Dreams and False Images, The Guarantee, and 34x25x36 – and while finishing the project as a whole, I’m distributing them as shorts to schools through New Day Films. Which is how I know Robert Arnold.
34x25x36 is currently airing on P.O.V. and is up at:

Like Robert, I'm excited to poke around and see what’s on this site. What a great resource this is.

Welcome, Johnny. And a special welcome to the awesome Jesse, who's too modest to talk about her great work keeping Shooting People going all these years. Great to have you here, Jesse.

Marj Safinia

Welcome Jesse! Still clearly and often remember your short Wet Dreams and False Images from SilverDocs. Glad to have you here.

Hi there, My name is Ciaran and I am a professional photographer.Last night I had dinner with my friend Onno.The conversation eventually turned to the D word. I described a film doc. that I want to make and I talked about how little I know about making one. So this morning I woke up with a link to the D-word Onno e-mailed to me, so here I am. This is my website........

Thanks for the welcome notes. Looks like I signed up just in time for the 10th anniversary party. And, at the Bohemian Hall even.

Hi, I'm Ted Fisher.

I make short documentaries and am hoping to move to feature length soon. I blog at and and have a filmography at also. I was producer and editor on the New York Times "Frugal Traveler" video series, which won the Webby award in 2008 and 2009. I teach editing, television production and visual effects at a few different schools.

I have two shorts up at Snagfilms currently:


This Saturday, I'm screening an 18-minute piece at Rooftop Films.;Rooftop_Films_Storms_Expected
