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.

Hello All!

It's great to finally be in a community of documentary filmmakers.
I am currently in post on a documentary about the Korean comfort
women of WWII. We have a broadcasting deal here in Seoul and hopes
that the film may travel the circuits. Check us out...I will be posting
several questions here since this is my first documentary. The "trailer"
on the webpage is in fact a rather old "demo reel" we used for funding
at the start. It will be changed out.

Please tell me what you think. And if you are great at structure and telling
a story please email me. anthony@namelessfilms.com I would even be
interested in working with a creative consultant on this one. It's too
importantto me.

Bests,

Hola Senores y Senoras,

If you know of any producers or philanthropists interested in
a project on human rights abuses in Colombia through the medium of
film, please send them my website and contact info.:) I have fiscal
sponsors who have 501 (c) non-profit status, therefore all donations
are tax deductible. And remember, April 15th is just around the
corner.:)

I have a new website with a future project link outlining our plans
to expand the short film, The Silent Scream, into a feature length
documentary. This is my new way of trying to find financing other
than the grant funding route.:)

I am attempting to network here folks.:) So please send any info my
way if you have time and feel inclined to help get this story told
through the medium of film. Mil gracias in advance for your time
and interest!!! Website: www.venturafilms.com

One comment, Mary. You might want to consider changing the title of
the film. There was a fairly well-known 1980s pro-life film by that
title which was very controversial because it showed an aborted fetus
and was aimed at being shown in American schools. You run the risk
of having the two films confused. Not that controversy can't be good
for publicity, but not for funding. Good luck!

"..a spectacular film...truly impressive" Judy Woodruff, CNN

"SEEDS beautifully captures the difficult and inspiring journey of teenagers toward dialog and understanding with their traditional enemies. Adults can only aspire to such bravery." Michelle Pearl, Vice President, The Daniel Pearl Foundation

-------------------------------------------

SEEDS, an exceptional documentary, introduces us to ten courageous teenagers trying to accomplish what most adults can never bring themselves to do: sit down in peace to face their enemy. Every summer, kids from war-torn countries gather together for three life-changing weeks at the Seeds of Peace International Camp in Maine. Back home, it*s impossible to believe that a Palestinian can share a bunk, let alone a laugh or a hug, with an Israeli; unimaginable for an Indian to speak freely with a Pakistani; inconceivable for an American to gain insight into an Afghan. But in the woods of Maine, they share their dreams and fears and try to see beyond the prejudices that divide them.

Like a grown-up, harder-edged heir to the Academy Award nominated documentary Promises, SEEDS shows that coexistence, even temporary, is tough work, and often elusive. SEEDS intimately documents this difficult journey, where there are no superficial resolutions. At times, the teenagers seem more enlightened than their leaders, but after a year back at home*where the word peace has very little meaning*can they hold onto what they have learned? SEEDS sends a strong message of hope in a media landscape that is bursting with images of violence and intolerance.

In the words of one of the kids, "in order to make peace with your enemy, you have to go to war with yourself."

An excellent film to see with kids, and for families to see together. Uplifting, poignant and inspiring, this film is the perfect antidote to all the madness in our world.

WITCHES IN EXILE


*Winner of the Special Jury Award at the 2004 SXSW Film Festival*

In Ghana, women accused of witchcraft are torn from their families and
banished to isolated "witch villages." This film follows accused
witches through their daily struggle to survive in the Kukuo Witches
Camp in Northern Ghana. As government agencies attempt to abolish
this age-old tradition, these women find themselves caught between
their society's deeply rooted beliefs and its drive toward
modernization. WITCHES IN EXILE captures a country at a dramatic and
emotional crossroads.

"stunning" - Chicago Reader

"A brilliant documentary... winner of SXSW's Special Jury Award for a
Documentary Feature, the film and its award are a testament to Berg's
skill as a filmmaker..."
- Laura Nathan, The Independent

"eye-opening" - Wendy Mitchell, Indiewire

"shocking and tragic... Witches in Exile is a remarkable example of
what can
happen when ignorance, poverty and superstition are allowed to fester"
- Merle Bertrand, Film Threat

"lucid and fascinating...Berg packs her vivid and compelling film with
solid detail"
- Robert Keser, Bright Lights Film Journal
