Hi, my name is João Camacho. I'm a Musician and Composer from
Portugal, and I'm trying (hard) to enter this competitive world of
making music for Films, games, multimedia, and of course,
Documentaries.

Has all the documentaries I see have music, I think that this post
might have some interest to you.
The fact is, I'm here advertising my work and I hope I'm doing it in
the right place.

I have a website in the internet, where besides being able to listen
to all my demos, you can license, in a non exclusive basis, the ones
that you would like to see included in your production, in a simple,
fast and unexpensive way.

To see all tracks available, just visit the News page in my website,
or go directly to the Demos Page.

http://www.sonicdaze.com

Keep visiting Sonic Daze website in the next few weeks because new
tracks will be regularly posted, and remember that I am always
available to make custom exclusive tracks for your projects, (for a
small fee, of course

See you soon. Thank you.

Cinemar Films is currently developing a feature-length documentary entitled *The
Keymaster*. Award-winning director Mario Diaz (*Bazooka*) is leading a team of seasoned
professionals that includes Chris Seward, the editor of Michael Moore*s *Fahrenheit 9/11*.

The film tells the story of William Rodriguez, a janitor in the World Trade Center on
September 11th who had the only available master key to the north tower. He is credited
with helping save hundreds of people*s lives and directly rescuing 15 people. He was the
last person to escape the building alive.

William*s heroic efforts extended far past that fateful day. He became and continues to be
the leading voice for the Latino community affected by the events of 9/11. But as he
fought for the rights of others, his life suffered severely. He remained unemployed after
the attacks and spent his savings to survive, eventually getting evicted from his home. He
continued his advocacy work during the day while sleeping in his car at night. *The
Keymaster* chronicles the journey of a man who, like us, is only beginning to comprehend
the effects that devastating event has had on his life.

The film is intended for theatrical release and is being shot on High Definition video.
Cinemar Films has brought in Director of Photography Alan Jacobsen, who photographed
2004 Sundance winner *Wet Dreams and False images*. Principal photography is slated to
start in March 2005.

Please visit http://www.cinemar.com to view the trailer, film synopsis, picture gallery and
more. We are currently in the process of fundraising and would welcome any support
and/or comments.

Documentary Interns Wanted!

AK Films is a small, New York City based production company currently
in production on a documentary about the 2004 presidential race. We
are looking for part-time and full-time interns to help out with this
exciting, high-profile, documentary film. This as of yet untitled
project is being put together by a small team of people including the
folks who did Control Room and Startup.com. The footage will
ultimately determine the narrative of the film, but we expect that the
film will be a personal look at the impact a presidential race has on
all the members of a candidate’s family.

We are at the point where we could use additional help with
transcribing, general administrative tasks, and perhaps logging and
digitizing. As we get to know our interns, the possibilities for
other kinds of work may arise. Although we cannot offer any pay at
this time, this self-starting intern will have the opportunity to
learn about all aspects of documentary post-production and will get a
great overall picture of the process of finishing a piece for
theatrical release. This is a great opportunity for someone starting
out in the world of documentary to meet some of the top folks working
in the field, as well as to be a part of a project about a historic
presidential race.

Requirements:
An ideal candidate would be a detail-oriented person who lives in NYC
and has at least 1 year of experience working in an office and/or as
part of a film production team. The minimum required commitment is 3
days a week, but we would prefer to find interns who can be available
full time. The positions would begin immediately and run through June,
possibly longer.

To apply, please send a cover letter and a recent copy of your resume
to ak_film@yahoo.com

We will broadcast your documentary.

Alternate Focus announces a call for Middle East-related documentaries.

Alternate Focus (www.alternatefocus.org) is a non-profit organization
that broadcasts documentaries in the United States in San Diego, New
York, Boston, Fairfax, and Washington, D.C. If your documentary covers
the occupation of Iraq, the occupation of Palestine, peace movements,
the USA PATRIOT Act, or any other issues that relate to the Middle
East, we want to broadcast them on our weekly television programs. We
will also broadcast interviews with Middle East experts, peace
activists, politicians, and anyone else who can talk passionately
about Middle East issues.
Alternate Focus has previously broadcast Hidden Wars of Desert
Storm, Checkpoint, Children of Fire, In the Name of Security,
Jerusalem: An Occupation Set in Stone?, and many other compelling
documentaries that too few Americans get the opportunity to see. Noam
Chomsky, Scott Ritter, Chalmers Johnson, Jeff Halper, James Zogby, and
Hanan Ashrawi have all appeared on Alternate Focus. Amy Goodman, James
Goldsborough, and Bob Filner will appear in the coming weeks.

If you are interested in broadcasting your documentary, please email
me at altfocus@yahoo.com, or call us directly at 001 858-551-0191.

A documentary I produced entitled CRUCIBLE OF WAR will be screened
this coming Thursday, March 24 at 7:30 pm as one of two films of a
Human Rights Showcase being sponsored by Amnesty International. Both
I and the film's director, Leon Gerskovic, will be present to discuss
the film following the screening.

The film follows Gerskovic back to Croatia, Bosnia, and Serbia where
he meets with ordinary people who are trying to rebuild their lives
after the war has ended and media attention has shifted elsewhere.
It is being screened on the sixth anniversary of the start of the
NATO campaign in response to the humanitarian crisis in Kosovo.

This free screening will take place in the Wechsler Theater (Mary
Graydon Center -- Third Floor) on the main campus of American
University.
