In reply to Beth Levison's post on Mon 14 Jul 2014 :
Is the drive in your relation to the Women in the Arab Uprising project?
If so, I will be happy to put a word up for you on my FB profile.
Maybe people will be enthusiastic to help if that is the topic :)
Let me know!
Thank you so much. Yes, it is for THE TRIALS OF SPRING (formerly known as AWAKENING) – the project about women of the Arab uprisings. Let me think on this generous offer. I like to keep all of this on the down-low and haven't ever posted on FB. Let me run this idea by my team and get back to you?
In reply to Beth Levison's post on Tue 15 Jul 2014 :
Sure. I can post something like this:
"A fellow filmmaker in NYC needs a drive shipped from Cairo for a film related to the Arab Spring. etc etc..."
And if you don't want me to post an email address, I can have anyone interested write to me directly.
Keep in mind this is the Public Classifieds which does come up in Google searches. Just saying.

In reply to Erica Ginsberg's post on Wed 16 Jul 2014 : Blrg – Erica. Thanks. To keep this more private, which classifieds should I then use? I thought these were the only ones on D-Word (in my 10 years of using it)!
In reply to Niam Itani's post on Tue 15 Jul 2014 19:18 UTC : Let's do it! Thanks, Niam!

My daughter (having typical difficulty finding fulfilling, paid work in NYC) is contemplating a short-term move (6-12 months) to Mexico. She's looking for an organization doing local, community-based environmental/social justice work. She's also interested in urban planning. Ideally, the organization would house her so she can sustain herself (and of course, pay is not unwelcome). Does anyone have any ties to Mexico, any ideas, or friends who might know of something?
Bit longer term – 24 months – but Peace Corps has been in Mexico since 2004. Housing and a stipend are part of the deal, plus a readjustment allowance and (some) student loan forgiveness. http://mexico.peacecorps.gov
I want to share my new demo reel.
In reply to Anna Savittieri's post on Wed 16 Jul 2014 :
I emailed you, Anna.
In reply to Helkin Rene Diaz's post on Fri 18 Jul 2014 :
Helkin – great to see your showreel but please note that one of the few rules at The D-Word is not to post the same post in multiple topics – with the exception of Professional Classifieds and Public Classifieds – the way these boards work makes such duplicate posts superfluous as we all read all the topics. I've deleted the others.
Hola Dougcito, El Patron del D-Word:
I have some ideas/people for your daughter (man, I remember seeing her off to college in your movie). And if she would want to also consider Peru....well, that seems to be my mission in life. Have her email me, Happy to help.
Another fixer/translator request – anyone have contacts in Far East Russia/Siberia?
(Still looking for a fixer in the Maldives too)
Email any recommendations to me at mariahewilson at gmail dot com
