Hi, Dennis; glad to see you here!
I believe that this is my first posting here – after having been a member for sometime and simply relying on the updates. Time to dive in.
I am a New Zealander, based in Japan for the last 15 or so years (and shortly migrating to the States).
Have worn a few caps thus far – local fixer, editor, video-journalist, cameraman, director. But documentary's where my heart's at.
I'm currently heavily ensconced in making an indie documentary called "Doglegs" – about the underground disabled pro-wrestling scene in Japan.
Hello, one and all!
www.doglegsmovie.com (underconstruction, but should be up in a few days)
Feeling my way around here, but so far I love what I see – a vibrant online community.
As a not-for-profit distribution organisation promoting quality films, we're always on the lookout for short documentaries that inspire young people in schools to engage in deep learning. I'm happy to provide a list of topics of particular interest.
'Short' means really short, ie. under 11mins, but we have plenty of examples where filmmakers have cut short versions (not trailers) of feature-length work to use as promotion or try-out for larger work.
Get in touch with me at any time – richard at campfire.org.au
or explore the campfire site to see the work we do. Campfire is a passion that grew out of my hobby and love of the documentary form (and graduation from film school back in '97... but that's another story for another day!)
Doug or any host, can you tell me what the most appropriate place to say "we're looking for x, y & z?"
Thanks for hosting a great site!
Heath & Richard – you've certainly found the right place! Welcome aboard The D-Word
In reply to Richard Leigh's post on Fri 6 Jul 2012 :
Richard, the Public and Professional Classifieds topics are probably your best bet. They're the only topics where we're okay with double posting, too.
Thanks John & Doug.
I'll get that public & pro classifieds topic list happening soon.
Again, thanks for the welcome & the service you're doing here :)
Hi folks, my name is Adam Stafford, a few years ago I directed a short called The Shutdown, which was quite well received. Since then I've been a bit erstwhile from the film community, making a new short (see My Films) that's taken me literally 3 years to get funding for and some busy musical projects. But I'm here to re-engage with the Doc Community. Thanks.
Good to have you here, Adam. Welcome back to filmmaking, in general, and welcome to The D-Word.
Thanks for the welcome Doug, it's good to be back!
