Wow. Was there a discount at the door? So many new additions overnight! Welcome all and a special welcome to Juliet who I lured here promising her the answer to all her D-Questions. Glad you made it :)
Doug – When my doc trailer is complete, I'll post it on D-Word. That is... if this is the forum for that sort of thing. Still trying to navigate through the plethora of information here!
Yes, absolutely, Juliet. You can easily post videos in any of our topics here. But (whenever you're ready) the Works In Progress topic is the best place to get feedback for a trailer. Would just be interesting to hear what it's about, that's all.
I'm a Documentary filmmaker living in Washington, New York and Munich at various times of the year. I'm a great cameraman (http://brightscreenproductions.com/clips/migration_usa.wmv) and I spend a lot of my time editing docs for people in Munich (http://brightscreenproductions.com/clips/berchtesgaden.wmv). I'm working on a film about German POWs right now and volunteer for DC-360 doing their lighting and camerawork, TD and directing (http://brightscreenproductions.com/clips/DC360_Promo.wmv). I'm at www.Millmanfilm.com
I'm a documentary filmmaker and writer in Boston, MA, and I'm working on my latest project, The Skin Quilt Project, check out the website below for more details:
I just discovered this wonderful site! I am a filmmaker/producer working on several projects on Latin Music in Mexico and Cuba. I will soon post my trailer, and would love your comments.
First post. I'm a composer looking for interesting projects to score. Currently working on "County Jail" for Discovery but work on all kinds of films in all styles. Here are links to my sites:
thanks for looking and I'm enjoying exploring the site.
Greetings! I'm the Director of Programming at the Ashland Independent Film Festival in Ashland, Oregon. Lots of familiar faces here – some with films that we have screened at the AIFF in the past, and many that we have not – yet – but may have the opportunity to in the future!
A little about me: After film school at NYU back in the '80s, I moved to San Francisco and worked as a freelance editor. Did a lot of commercial and corporate productions to pay the bills, but my true love was documentary film. Last doc I worked on was VOICES FROM INSIDE directed by Karina Epperlein, and I was cutting the fundraising trailer for a film I hoped to edit, Eric Slade's HOPE ALONG THE WIND: THE LIFE OF HARRY HAY when my first child was born and changed my plans a bit... many years ago and I have not been back to editing since.
Switched gears, and moved to the lovely town of Ashland, OR. 2010 will mark my 5th festival programming for the AIFF. We have great audiences here. We screen films of all lengths and genres but I must say that Ashland loves docs! Our festival dates are April 8-12, 2010 and we are currently accepting submissions. Lots of information for filmmakers at www.ashlandfilm.org.
So before I veer too much into shameless self-promotion, I will say bye for now, and thanks for this wonderful forum!
Welcome, Joanne. When I grow up I want to move to some lovely town and program an indie film festival, too. And I want to be paid a fortune to do it, of course! Anyway, great to have you here with us.
Ditto to Michael, Cynthia, Lauren, Roland and, sheesh, I can barely keep up.
