DC folks, check out these two upcoming programs:

Saturday, November 8 from 10-1 at Docs In Progress in Silver Spring
Have the legal issues on your film project got you wishing you had your own legal department? Anticipating legal challenges can mean the difference between a shelved project collecting dust and a successful film release. This half-day workshop with entertainment attorney Laura Possessky is designed to help you identify legal issues and develop a toolkit to navigate challenges as they arise. Participants engage in interactive discussions on business structures, production risks, rights clearances, distribution and best practices.
A few spots are still available. Find out more and register:

and, if Pat Aufderheide's recent D-Word special topic whet your appetite for some F2F discussion...

Monday, December 8, 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Interface Media in Washington DC
Fair use, the use of unlicensed material in documentary, has become a routine feature of documentary production; broadcasters and insurers are now accepting it as a matter of course. But documentarians now have new questions. When a broadcaster uses my doc to explain their news story, can they do that without paying me? When a media company tells me I have to get clearances for everything, how do I tell them the current realities? Just how risky is fair use these days? And who's got my back if I get a cease and desist letter?

Hello Everyone:

I'm currently working on a documentary that delves into the issues of obesity in the Latino and under-represented communities.

At the moment, I have a website and have shot some footage to show funders….

If this is of interest, please see our website and contact me soon!
Thank you

(This might be a slight departure from the typical classified postings, but it may be important to you, none-the-less.)

Hi.  I'm Jason Paden and I am very excited to be here pitching a concept to you brilliant documentary Producers and Directors, who might be wondering what project to do next.  I think you might want to read this, despite the horrific subject I'm about to type below:

Mental Illness.

Yes, that's right... dreaded mental illness.  It's the heavy, scary and, pardon the redundant expression - depressing topic that hardly anyone wants to think about, much less deal with. Maybe it's because it feels so dark.  Maybe it just seems like such a hopeless problem and topic. Or maybe it's due to it actually being so darned close to home for so many people who might not have even realized just how close it actually is.

What am I talking about?

Well, did you know that the government now states on their website,, that 1 in 5 Americans are estimated to deal with mental illness in their lifetime?  That's a lot of people!

You may be surprised or you many now be skeptical.  After all, it may seem an unbelievably high number when you're out in stores, shopping malls and most public places that are teeming with people.  You may look around and say, "That statistic can't be right.  Most of these people around me look 'normal'.  I see very few who look like they are dealing with mental illness."

All I can say is that before I was WELL, looking normal and blending in was top on my priority list too!  The last thing I wanted, when I was NOT WELL, was to feel more vulnerable.  I wanted no one to know the truth that was whirling inside my sick brain - that I had major aspects of both Bipolar AND Schizophrenia.

So, to protect myself, I devoted tons of exhaustive energy to hiding my inner torment, to "pass as normal" as best I possibly could in social situations, so that no one would know.  That way, no one would pick me out from the crowd.  No one would have the chance to make fun of me and my serious mental illness. No one would call me crazy.  (This would have devastated me deeper.)  So I hid my personal mind horrors from everyone and I put on a smile when I wasn't "feeling it", or I withdrew completely when it got too bad from the public eye.  

You can imagine how hard school must have been - which was why I was the quiet, lonely kid who often stayed home sick and graduated early in my Junior year of high school.  I bet you realize that college was tough too, which was why it took almost 5 years to get my Associates Degree. You can imagine that work wasn't much easier and that would explain why I was unemployed and on Social Security Disability for almost 10 years.  I'm sure you can imagine that terrifying symptoms like hallucinations, delusions, phobias and paranoia - amongst many others features - were a part of my young adult life.  And if you guessed that eventually diagnoses, pills, therapies, doctors and a hospital stay in the psychiatric ward were a part of my story... then you'd be correct, too.

You probably know now that my life is pretty horrible, despicable and depressing today... BUT that's where I have to stop you.  In fact... that couldn't be further from the truth.

Yes, perhaps the past was a horrific experience for me and my childhood, but like all good adventure stories, it has a happy second part!  There is a far more important, larger, more extravagant, much more exciting "pay off" in the tale here.  It's huge in scope.  Yes, awful darkness and danger are in it, but now, triumphant, climactic joy is my theme.  Against the odds, I've found peace and health and this will undoubtedly relay to an audience who is thirsting for hope around mental illness and may be following this amazing journey on screen.  

By the way, this story is still unfolding and is far from done.  It could be just the beginning of this powerful adventure that I've found myself on.  The next chapter, is getting my message out.

So I am writing you filmmakers, today, to let you know, not just about my life long illness (no, that is sadly the common part)... but to show you the miraculous and "temporarily" rare second half of my story that I need help covering.  This journey has taken me from the dark of mental illness through the hope of mental health and, now, beyond!

I am Jason Paden, a new motivational speaker and developer of a new kind of project centered on Hope and Healing for us humans (It's in its infancy, but begging to be documented.)

I would like to show YOU - not only mental health... but the next potential chapter of the human brain - Mental Healthy, an exceptionally bright, happy, healed state of mind and being that I believe is possible for, perhaps, anyone.  I may be a bit of a pioneer here, but I don't own this state of mind.  I may have found a way to get here, but I personally believe it's possible for everyone, even the most seriously ill of the "1 in 5" who are in desperate need of mental health improvement today.  

My story, I'm trying to intrique you with, is simply far larger than anything I can now write in this classified.  You have to meet me to really know what I'm talking about.

So let's start a dialoque.  

See, I don't need much assistance in feeling well anymore.  No, now I need help of a different kind.  I think I need yours.  Help me create a beautifully packaged, cinematically documented message to put out there.  Help me help others to know that not only is mental health Recovery possible, but there is a much bigger, healthier, happier experience waiting on the other side for us as people.  

Mental Healthy, a new phrase and state of mind I've worked so hard to find, all these years... is real.  I'll show you.

Then, together, let's show the world.

Are you curious?  Do you want to know more about this and what's happening to me?  Are you ready to make a Documentary that could change lives... maybe even yours?  I am.  100%

Let's get this ball rolling.  Let's talk.  It's your turn now.  I'd love to hear from YOU!   :)
