Hard work, Aaron. Hard work.
Hello all. I am very excited to be introducing myself to such a great group of filmmakers. I recently moved to New York and have been working freelance, camera and editing. Additionally, I am in pre-production on my first feature length film about an community of electronic musicians in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I am looking forward to gaining advice, interesting discussion, and collaboration through the d-word!
Welcome, Christa (Aaron, too). Nice to have you joining us here.
Hi, I last logged on a few years ago.... sorry for disappearing! I have managed to escape the clutches of the big city of London and escape to Africa where I plan to concentrate on making some documentaries..... so thought it was time I said hello again!
If anyone out there is based in West Africa or is interested in collaborating on a project in this part of the world... then I'd love to speak to you.
Hey Tara – I think we met at the Sheffield DocFest in 2007 – welcome back to The D-Word. Interesting time to be in North Africa...
Welcome back, Tara. Great to get an update and hope you'll come back often (virtually, at least).
Yes we did meet at Sheffield. Hello! It is an interesting time to be here.... not too much happening in Morocco though... although during a protest on Sunday the shop Zara got smashed up. However yesterday all the streets were lined with people welcoming the king back to the city.... so I think they like him. Although you never know for how long! Thanks for the welcome back.

Thanks for the tip, Tom! Am just looking through the site now and already agree with you.
Hello, my name is Rick Janzen and I've recently have started making Documentaries. I have two in the early stages of production at this time. I've been involved in the film business since 1987 as a scenic artist and sign painter, but decided to start shooting my own stuff two years ago. After spending countless hours learning to use my camera and editing system (not to mention spending a small fortune), I decided on a couple of projects. I have always thought the best way to learn a craft is to surround yourself with people who know what their doing. I know the road to discovery is going to have a lot of potholes and curves, but that's what makes it so interesting. I look forward to being part of the community and learning from your experience.
Great to have you here, Rick. Hope we can help support you in your career shift, it's an admirable thing to do.
