Well, we certainly welcome Hans, and will welcome him even more warmly when he decides to post in the first person. Come on out and play with us, Hans.

Hi, my name is Chihiro and I work on a crossmedia project empowering media dialogue between makers and doc fans. It's called MoochMe and will be launched at IDFA 2009 at Cinema De Munt. The idea: Promote your own & take one home!

Additionally I've directed and edited a couple of short docs for the Buddhist Broadcast here in Holland and wish to develop myself in this field in the coming years.

Favorite docs: The Planet & Surplus editted by Johan Soderberg! War on democracy, The Corporation and looking forward to seeing "Age of Stupid" & "Soundtrack for a revolution" at IDFA this year. I saw a little preview at the IDFA CLUB evening.

Looking forward to connecting, learning & sharing doc insights and news. Total newby here so have to snoop around a bit

Hello everyone (or Doug, as it were). I'm Evan, and I'm a filmmaker.

Currently working on my second documentary, my third feature length film, Winter in Kenmare. The story is about a small town in southwestern Ireland, and how it is preparing to face the difficult times ahead, both seasonally and globally.

I've plenty to do, but I'm glad to have found this site, as I hope to pick your brains for inspiration and practical ideas. And I hope to serve as a resource for those who need some advice as well.

Welcome, Chihiro. You and Hans should register as Members here, since you both easily qualify. We'll be having a large contingent of D-Word members attending IDFA next month, so will be nice to add some locals to our group.

Good to have you aboard, Evan, and good luck with the next film.

Hey Doug : ) Thanks for the invite, will do. Very excited about this years IDFA going by the previews I've seen and the many projects around it taking place. I'll be fully immersed in it working and checking out new work.

Looking forward to host people in Amsterdam.

Well, I'll have two films there. My own (The Kids Grow Up) and another personal doc that I'm producing (The Edge of Dreaming). So be on the lookout and look forward to seeing you there.

And, btw, what's Nebraska doing in the Netherlands?

Hi everyone, I joined d-word a short while ago and forgot to introduce myself! I'm an editor/producer (does anyone use "preditor" anymore?) with a journalism background and attempting the transition to documentary. I edited "Trail of Feathers: the Missile Dick Chicks Take on America", a feature doc which needs finishing funds before it will be distributed. http://trailoffeathers.blogspot.com/2009/04/blog-post.html

I'm also working on a short doc I filmed in Greece this summer about a dance performance with non-dancer immigrants who are dealing with racism and other problems. (shades of an earlier post from Austin TX)

And all this talk of IDFA makes me sad! I was living in Amsterdam for a while until late 2008, and I attended IDFA 3 years straight, first as a volunteer, then journalist, and finally participant ("Trail" was in Docs for Sale last year). But I won't be going this year. :(

Glad you finally posted an intro, Jill. Now you just need to sign up as a full member, too. You'll be shocked at how much of The D-Word you've been missing.
