Welcome to The D-Word, Rodrigo. Any friend of Deirdre's is certainly a friend of ours. Lots of D-Word members going to Full Frame so check out the F2F and Festival topics and hopefully you'll make new friends.

Juliana Piccillo

Hi Everyone,
I'm Juliana Piccillo, filmmaker, writer and activist – sex work is my cause. Planning to bust through the shorts ceiling with a feature length doc and I'm so incredibly excited to find this community!

Stephanie Frederic


My name is Stephanie Frederic. I'm a director/producer/writer based in Los Angeles.

I'm a firm believer that – a laptop and a dream can take you anywhere. As a former TV news reporter, I've been telling stories all my life. If there's one thing I know, I was born to do just this. I own FGW Productions ( and we are visual storytellers.

Some of the docs I have produced included, "Rwanda Rising," "From Darkness to Light – The Donnie McClurkin Story," and "Planet LA."

I'm here to help and to learn.

Feel free to reach out. I'd love to know more about you and my new doc family.

Juliana and Stephanie, how nice to have you both find us. A warm welcome to The D-Word.

Christina Katsiadakis

Hello. My name is Christina. I am a new at this. Two days ago I started shooting my first documentary and I am excited, stressed and hoping for the best. It is called G30 and it is following the life of 30something people in Greece during these times of financial hardship. We are hoping for a positive message out of this documentary! Let's see what happens!

Niam Itani

wow, Christina. 30 characters are surely a big number :) Good luck!

Welcome to everybody x

Welcome, Christina, and best of luck with your project.

Jason Perdue

I think 30-something refers to their age, not the number of them. I could be wrong.

Doug Block

I think the :) indicates Niam was kidding, Jason. Of course, I could be wrong, too.
