Welcome, Story Factory. So you know, if you want to register for full membership at The D-Word (and we certainly hope you will) you'll need to do so as individuals rather than as a company.

The "real name" policy counts for everyone – you can only join The D-Word as an individual, not as a team or production company.

Hello! I took the "real name" policy literally and included my middle name. I wasn't trying to sound pretentious ... honest! "Enthusiast" is a perfect description for me. Currently, I'm a Big Fan/consumer of documentary ~ especially when Hot Docs rolls around. Am trying to get a sense of The (doc-making) Life to sharpen my appreciation as an audience member.

Welcome, Ann. Nice to have a genuinely enthusiastic enthusiast here in the mix. Hope you find what you're looking for.

Hi D-Word,

I am way overdue in joining this amazing community, and am glad to finally be a part of it. I made my first documentary in 2004 with Tim Nackashi, Dirty Work (dirtyworkdoc.com), have worked for hire as a cinematographer and producer and director in various corners of the non-fiction film and tv-making worlds, and am now in the middle of making my next documentary feature, called My Own Man, about my middle-aged masculinity crisis (check out myownmanthemovie.com for more details on the project). In some ways I'm an experienced filmmaker but in some ways I also feel like a newbie, especially when it comes to the business of attracting funding and building an audience and getting films out into the world, so I'm here to offer what I can while benefiting from the mentorship of this sprawling network of documentary nuts. Thanks for having me, David

Part of the business seems to be discovering that however much experience you accumulate along the way, it's inevitable to find that you're a newbie again and again.

You're welcome to share your crises at The D-Word, David.
