Hi Everyone,

I call myself a reporter. I have worked as a reporter for several organs previously, but even when I was not formally employed as one, i considered myself one.

I was drawn to the documentary format because it was a natural extension of what I do. To me it nothing more, nothing less than another medium of expression – and one which is very handy in the arsenal of the reporter.

Being new to the documentary format I have joined the D-word to learn and to share. I have so far made two docs and in the early planning stages of a third.

They can be found here:

I know the production values are not right up there, but I promise to do better next time. Ruthless and dispassionate criticism will be gratefully received.

Best,
tapeit

Hi all,
I'm a documentary editor and do almost everything else that's needed in a small production company in the rugged coast of Connemara in Ireland.
Just discovered the website, well done.
I'm about to go to Medimed Documentary Market, in Spain in October with a documentary I edited.. Just wondering if anybody has been to past editions and could give me any feedback and advice on how to make the best out of this event.
Thanks for your time
Best
Manuela

Hi everyone,

I heard Doug speak at IFP last week and wanted to see what the D-word was all about. I make grassroots docs to help make policy change in NJ.

Howdy and welcome, Lori. So why is someone making grassroots docs for policy change going to a panel on personal docmaking, huh huh? ;-)

I signed up for the day, so was there for that panel as well. I'm actually interested in all kinds of documentaries and personal essays are interesting to me from a sociological standpoint. I however, believe that real change only happens through legislative change. Perhaps at least one can measure the change in some way... I'm really enjoying the topic dialog with Pat Aufderheide about the Honest Truths report.

Dear D-word Nation,
Hello, My name is Julia Welbourne and I'm a freelance producer/editor who just recently moved from NYC to Seattle. I'm happy to have finally joined D-word at the advice of many!

I've worked on a number of feature docs over the last several years, wearing the many obligatory hats of documentary work. From development and coordinating to post management and editing.

Coming from the east, my Pacific Northwest network is small yet and I'm interested in not only developing some projects of my own, but in collaborating and networking with other local filmmakers.

Please feel encouraged to check out my profile for a more detailed bio- especially if you are in the PAC/Seattle area!

Thanks, and so glad to be here.
:D

Welcome, Julia. FYI, Ryan is referring to the predominance of male, um, members in the Seattle area. They're clearly excited, and perhaps a wee threatened, by the diversity you bring to the area.
