In reply to Kristin Alexander's post on Wed 24 Mar 2010 :

Kristin, the hosts deleted his account after receiving a number of complaints about unsolicited emails in which he referred to The D-Word.

As he just had an Enthusiast account, he was only able to see your website on your profile, not your email address or phone number. (However, these are listed on your website.)

I found him to be truly invested and savvy with regard to his responsibilities and relationships with journalists and general media. I would also have to add that he was extremely considerate and a heck of a lot of fun to be with.”

I am an online editor/colorist in New York and have had the pleasure of working on many documentaries from the D Word community. Here in the second decade of the millennium the post world has changed. While it is more complicated than ever to finish a film, especially in HD, budgets have all come down. Well, so have prices in post facilities. You might be surprised at the budgets we can work with. I'd be happy to offer D Word members a break. I'd love to help and at the same time shamelessly go on making a living color correcting good documentaries.

Ryan, I just upgraded you to Member status so you can say hello in our dedicated Hot Docs 2010 topic. I'm sure there'll be people with "sizzling docs" who may need a good publicist.

Ryan helped out with 51 BIRCH STREET at the Toronto Film Festival in 2005. "Energy and enthusiasm" doesn't begin to describe him.

I can second that from TIFF 2008. :-)

Hey Randy, the preview looks pretty awesome. I'm in a similar boat, doing a doc and doing scoring (with a bit of metal influence too). The music fills in the tone nicely. It tells me you are bringing us closer to his ideas, at least in spirit. Not in an absurd way, but a respectful way. That really came through for me. I like weird subjects like this too. Cheers.

Yes I know Doug. Well if you can supply better adjectives, I'll have Ryan change the quote!
