The later has always worked for me, Mathea. And joining The D-Word as a professional member will help, too. You'll get a slew of mentors.
Hello! I'm a writer/filmmaker from Los Angeles currently working on a documentary about life with my service dog. I've logged about eight million hours of tape and I'm just about ready to begin editing. Wishing you all the best and thanks to Doug Block for sharing this site with me! It's great!
Good luck with the eight million hours, Lauren!
Any friend of Doug's deserves it.
Hi Lauren, glad you followed up and registered. Now go all the way and sign up for professional membership here. When you do, check out the Face 2 Face topic, since there will be a small gathering of D-Word members in L.A. tomorrow night who you'll definitely want to meet. Service dogs especially welcome!
While you're at it, fill in your profile a bit more when you can.
I am now officially a professional! And today I'm up to nine million hours of tape. Double win!
Hello all...Doug Blush here, editor of WORDPLAY, IOUSA, OUTRAGE and others. Directing a feature doc with my wife on bipolar condition for later this year, and proudly premiering FREAKONOMICS Friday April 30th at Tribeca (I edited the Eugene Jarecki segment). Glad to be aboard!
Glad to have you, Doug. Some nice credits you bring along, too. Curious to hear more about your own film (in the Works in Progress topic) if you care to share.
I'm working on a documentary film in Rocklkand. Will be filming next week. Getting tired of trekking to NYC to rent cameras. Does anyone know of any local avenues to rent , buy or borrow cameras?
Hey everyone. I'm Matt Groff, a writer-producer-director working in New York. I premiered my debut feature doc, U.N. Me, at IDFA last November (wonderful festival) and done some follow up festivals along the way. Looking forward to connecting on issues surrounding doc production and promotion.
Welcome, Alice and Matt. Alice, you're better off asking questions like that in the Classifieds topics.
Hi Everyone. I am Seth Shire, a post production supervisor and film critic with a special interest in documentaries. I look forward to discussing all aspects of documentary filmmaking from the technical to what's new and exciting in all of your work. Speaking of which Doug Blush I was at the "Freakonomics" screening at Tribeca on April 30. Nice job. In fact I have an article on my blog in which I mention it – www.unpaidfilmcritic.wordpress.com.
Great to have you here, Seth. If there's any justice in the world, you should definitely be called The Paid Film Critic very soon!
I am Jeff Bush. I work at The Wall Street Journal as a multimedia producer. I shoot and edit video stories that the print reports write as well as do a little of my own reporting. Even though I have been shooting and editing for the past 15 years or so, I have always been in more or less ENG.
I want to expand my skills by volunteering to work on a documentary in a more extreme environment. I want to learn some of the practical skills when it comes to shooting in less than ideal locations.
Hi, Jeff. Welcome to The D-Word.
