Hello D-Worders! I want to introduce the D-Word community to an exciting participatory documentary event I am helping to produce. One Day On Earth is an online community of photographers, filmmakers, students, and inspired individuals all teaming up with the goal of creating a more accurate picture of life on this planet.

On October 10th, 2010 (10.10.10), thousands of people from every nation around the world will film their perspective and contribute their voice to the largest participatory media event in history; the event will result in a feature documentary and online video archive that will showcase the diversity, conflict, tragedy, and triumph that can occur in one day on earth.

We would love to include the talents and perspectives of the D-Word community in our world document. Learn more about One Day on Earth and sign up to participate at:http://www.onedayonearth.org.

Very ambitious plan, Gina. Asking 50,000 participants to film what inspires them most is going to generate enough footage to last an aeon! How do you intend to keep focus and create a thread to hold it all together?

On Tuesday, there will be a historically important memorial service that I will be covering for a feature documentary.

I am looking for shooters who have EX-1/3s or similar cameras to shoot with me from about 8:30 AM until about 1 PM.

Volunteers are truly appreciated. I can offer up to $50 for each camera person as a gratuity. Plus credit as "additional camera" when the film is completed.

I can tell you more about the sad, and yet exciting business of this day, when you tell me about your availability.

Thank you.

FIXER needed for SOUTH AMERICAN DOCUMENTARY

The Guarani Project is looking for a fixer/translator!

We are looking for a fixer/translator to join our team for a 5-6 week shoot from late July to early September in South America.

Think you’re up for the job, or know someone who is?

You must be FLUENT in Spanish, Portuguese AND English, and be based in Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay or Uruguay.

The job will be very hard work but amazing fun- think, travelling all night, one hour sleep and then interviewing the environment minister of Paraguay before heading off to interview displaced indigenous people and then spending the evening translating it all and discussing/planning the next day.

We are not so interested in finding the person with the most impressive CV but rather looking for someone who will fit the dynamic of the team- young, creative, intelligent and ambitious!

If you think you can do it, send an email to Annabel@theguaraniproject.com explaining you’d be good for the role.

We look forward to hearing from you!

The Guarani Team

Hi All,

Just a post to let you know about The NOMAD Project, an exhibition to premiere at the 2010 debut of Access & PARADOX, taking place the 21-24 of October 2010 in Paris, France.

The NOMAD Project will be an exhibition of short films directed and/or produced by independent filmmakers utilizing innovative and explorative ways of telling a story. The aim of the exhibition is to share with the contemporary art audience unique ways in which filmmakers are adapting to the stage of the global economy as well as shifts in technology. The films can be narrative, documentary or experimental, and should relate to PARADOX’s unofficial theme “Nostalgia for Nature”.

The call for projects opens today, July 1, 2010, and submissions will be accepted through August 31, 2010. For The NOMAD Project application and guidelines please visit www.nomadfilms.net, or contact Directors Ari Allansson (ari@nomadfilms.net) or Sarah Schutzki (sarah@nomadfilms.net).

About NOMAD Films
NOMAD Films was created in an effort to expose innovative and experimental forms of filmmaking, taking into account the financial limitations within the independent industry as well as continuously evolving filmmaking technology. The goal of the exhibition(s) is to create additional distribution outlets within the arts. Distribution models for low-budget independent films are not always substantial; NOMAD Films brings to light a selection of the many projects that have had little exposure otherwise.

About PARADOX
PARADOX is an International Contemporary Art Fair making its debut in October 2010 in Paris, France. Partnering with Access, Access & PARADOX will focus on the exhibition and promotion of new, emerging artists working in contemporary art. Although the fair will debut in 2010 in Paris, there are plans for future editions to take place throughout Europe and the Americas as well.

Hi, There!
I am looking for an experienced UPM for a full length feature documentary that is about to go into production. Candidates must be very good at multi-tasking and have broad resources to get it done right for the right price.
Very important story with a great group of talented filmmakers.
Please send resumes to disarmingfilms@gmail.com
Must be available close to immediately.

Hi everyone. Great to be here. I'm hoping I can get your support. My recent doc is called The Queen's Suite. I'm currently raising the finishing funds on Kickstarter.

One comment on the doc is, 'The vid on Kickstarter is the most inspiring thing I have seen in all my adult life."

I've organised lots of great gifts from acknowledgments, online downloads, DVDs, photos, lunch with the UK's leading doc exec producer, a recording session at Premises Studios, one to one sessions in doc filmmaking and camera plus more. Pledges start from $3 (£2).

It's taken 18 months to make and it was done so without funding. It now needs funds for the online, dub and release of archive.

We have until the end of August to raise the funds. Here is the link. If you like what you see please do pledge and share it with your friends. http://kck.st/cbGGo1

All About Jazz just published an article where you can find out more about how and why the doc was made. http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/news.php?id=60716

Hi all,
We're trying to add to our deferred-pay team for what we hope will be a fascinating and unusual music documentary on 80's band DEVO. Thanks for your interest!

EDITORS AND ASSISTANT EDITORS NEEDED – AVID – NYC (MANHATTAN)
UNTITLED DEVO PROJECT
START – IMMEDIATE THROUGH JANUARY
RESPOND TO: devohelp@gmail.com
Please put "ASSISTANT EDITOR" in your subject line and include a resume.

This is the first feature documentary ever made about the seminal 80's
new wave band Devo. We are currently seeking a co-editor and two to
three assistants to join our post-production team.

Devo, broadly known for their hilarious inverted flower-pot hats and
hit song "Whip It", is also recognized by its fans and critics as a
darkly subversive group of conceptual artists. Their ideas and tight,
aggressive musicianship are completely original.

Devo's name comes from an elaborate theory concocted by members that
mankind is devolving. They use music, film, performance, costume, and
art to get their ideas across.

Its members grew up in the 60's -70's former rubber factory
towns of Akron, Ohio. They were art school kids, and formed the band
partially as a dadaist reaction to Vietnam and the shootings of
protesters at Kent State which involved their friends and acquaintances.

Discovered by Iggy Pop, they became hugely successful in the 80's,
declined, sold out, went into hiatus almost broke
up, and now have finally made a new album – the first in 20 years.

The band's leaders, Mark Mothersbaugh and Jerry Casale, have an odd
love/hate relationship that is a central story in the film. We have
open access to the band, and have interviews with them, Iggy Pop, Dave
Grohl and other rock notables, family members, and a crazy cast of
characters who surrounded them during their Ohio days. There is
amazing archival and present-day concert footage, verite footage, home
movies and present-day stuff shot by the cinematographers Lee Daniel
(SLACKER, FAST FOOD NATION, DAZED AND CONFUSED), and Shane Sigler
(CAPITALISM:A LOVE STORY).

The film's theme could be loosely described as "what happens to an
artist's intense creative and political convictions as they get
older". We seek to combine traditional documentary method with
offbeat editorial styles and structuring to produce something that
reflects the craziness of the subject. Think Errol Morris' FAST CHEAP
AND OUT OF CONTROL. Devo now has a new album on Warner Brothers and
are touring. This band is well-loved enough and the film interesting
enough that we hope to garner strong festival
attention and conceivably a small theatrical release.

We have a quirky, fun team we hope you can be a part of. The
filmmaker/editor is Tony Pemberton. His first narrative feature, BEYOND THE OCEAN, went to Sundance and multiple international festivals. In
addition to Devo, he has a new narrative feature in the works which is
set in Russia and will be an international coproduction. The producer,
Roberta Friedman got her start with George Lucas on Star Wars and
Empire Strikes Back. Co-editor Ann Husaini has edited two highly
original feature documentaries, ALMA and CARNIVAL
ROOTS, which were both selected for Whitney Biennials and had wide
festival exposure, as well as multiple television projects for MTV and
other cable channels.

This film is a probono project. Hours will be tracked for deferred
payment. It does have strong investor interest, so we hope we can eventually offer pay, but cannot guarantee anything. Editing on AVID.
There is approximately 80 hours of footage. We have transcripts,
and need logging/organizational assistance and some synching. For editors, we are currently creating topical segments that we'll use to structure the first rough cut.

We'd like to give assists junior editorial opportunity – pulling nuggets they think are great, assembling string outs, and taking a first stab at rough cuts when possible. Please be able to offer either two days a week or a chunk of time a month.

Kevin OHanlon
Wed 21 Jul 2010Link

We are looking for a grant writer/fundraiser to help raise funds for our world artists documentary series. Compensation would be a percentage commission of financing raised

We have NFP fiscal sponsorship from Fractured Atlas and have a list of the 12 most likely sources of grant funding.

Below is the text from our recent fund raising entry on Kickstarter.

Kevin O'Hanlon is a gallery owner and filmmaker, originally from Dublin, now living in NYC. He's starting a nonprofit called FilmsOnArtists through which he will travel the globe to make documentaries about artists and the creative process.

The primary focus will be the artists' context as content, how they have been influenced by their environment, history and circumstances, and how they have uniquely channeled that experience in a positive and creative way. The films won't be about famous artists, but about spiritually and environmentally connected ones, ones who daily take random materials and refine them into artforms that educate and enlighten.

"Artists don't have a blueprint for what they do. No one has been where their mind is currently projecting. They look into a blank canvass and create a future that we will all ultimately inhabit. FilmsOnArtists will combine their experiences and report back from the creative front-lines to let us know what that future will look like."

O'Hanlon has made films of a dozen artists and art projects to date. Recent projects include a documentary of an orphanage in Cambodia, a woodcarver in the rainforest in Costa Rica, and two in Haiti. One of the Haiti films happened when Kevin went there to offer help following the earthquake and visited with orphans who had lost their home and school in the catastrophe. He joined forces with Life For The World and Haitian-American artist Richard Laurent and brought the kids 220 canvasses to paint. He filmed as these young artists created their very first paintings. From there, Kevin and Life For The World took that film and the art produced by the children and had an exhibition at his gallery in Chelsea. The money raised went to rebuild the demolished orphanage that is home to the young Haitian children. The Haitian childrens's project will continue to be supported by and reported on by FilmsOnArtists.

Says O'Hanlon: "This was one of those mutually abundant situations. We got to experience the mindset of these amazing children at a pivotal moment in their lives, while bringing so much joy to kids who had never held a paintbrush or seen a blank canvass before. The project empowered them, affirmed their artistic abilities and set them on a creative path to their own solution. They are Haiti's future, the generation who will rebuild."

An interactive website is being designed for FilmsOnArtists. The website will catalog the films and interconnect the lives of the artists that show up in FilmsOnArtists' documentaries with visitors of the site. Viewers will be able to engage more meaningfully in the project by perhaps choosing which geographic location thay are interested in or what type of art. A future feature of the site will allow the user to select a theme such as "hope", "curiosity" or "courage" and hear our global artists speak together on that theme.

We want www.FilmsOnArtists.com to be a place where people can gain inspiration from every corner of the globe and connect to a global creative energy.

Please contact Kevin: Info@FilmsOnArtists.com

Kevin,
You should clear the "Compensation would be a percentage commission of financing raised" with your fiscal sponsor. They might have a problem with that... although that is exactly what they do, of course.

Hi all I realised I ought to have written a little bit more about the doc.

It's called The Queen's Suite

Tagline: A young jazz musician, Duke Ellington, the Queen of England, a 15 piece orchestra, a dream driven by passion and music that blows the dust of life.

I've been working on the doc for 19 months with no funding.

The vlog is about why I made the Queens's Suite and why it's on Kickstarter.

It's on so that the doc can be finished. I've organised some great gifts in exchange for a pledge.

Thanks for reading and watching Corine.

Hi there, working in two media campagins that involve famous artists, photographers, actors and filmmakers. We're developing this campaings for the next 3/5 years and include documentaries, live tv events, exhibitions, books and social media. We already have a executive producer, a very good PR company interested, filmmakers and the production team. I'm the producer in one of the campaigns that involves a very famous national geographic photographer and is about children in conflict zones. The second project is a media awareness social activist documentary about the Amazon. I'm the director of the documentary, and i'm working very closely with a very interesting film studio in the area as well with local indigenous communities and shamans. We have already some of the sponsorship covered. But we still have a lot in the table to work on, so we're looking for 2/3 people who can work in future premises, once we get the full sponsorship we can pay for the amount of work done.
Looking for an assistant producer, contacting organizations, production companies, setting up interviews, creating schedules, talk to the team and figure out places, processes, timeline and everything needed before the shooting. The second or third person will be to make research about current issues and people in the areas, write emails to potential faces of the documentary and contact people.
please contact me for further questions,

thanks a lot

One more week to go for DOCUWEEKS in New York and LA. There are some really great films playing that y'all should go and see. This week in NY you can catch MY PERESTROIKA by D-Word's own Robin Hessman, as well as WASTE LAND (Lucy Walker) and BUDRUS (Julia Bacha) in NY. Just some of my favorites. Have also heard amazing things about FREEDOM RIDERS.

In LA, you can see STEAM OF LIFE, in which naked Norwegian men discuss life in saunas (believe me, it's amazing), SUMMER PASTURE, in which you can witness up close remote rural life in the mountains of Tibet and learn about the value of yak milk as a moisturizer, and you can see THIS WAY OF LIFE, which I highly recommend for all phobic parents. This New Zealand family lives by a whole different set of rules, and it's an eye opening opportunity to examine how parenting is approached in this country.

These are just some of the highlights of a really great crop of films. And as we all know, unless we ourselves get our butts into theaters to support our fellow docmakers, how can we expect others to do the same?

I highly recommend a visit to the Arclight in LA or the IFC Center in NY. It's like taking a vacation without every leaving home.

Lost my shooter, and am scrambling to find someone with at least minimal documentary shooting experience and their own camera to shoot for a few hours this Friday evening 8/13 in LA. Shoot will be at a benefit concert @ the Greek Theatre (Carlos Santana, Zach de la Rocha and others are performing, more details @ http://www.doloreshuerta.org/weavingmovements/). This is a DEFERRED PAY job for a documentary that is partially funded and is in the process of raising remaining funds. Screen credit and eternal thanks guaranteed.

Please write back if interested--thanks!

Hello, all. I've been booked for a one week gig. It's kind of an exploratory shoot, and the producer doesn't have a big budget. We need to rent a Panasonic HPX170 or HMC150 at a reasonable rate.

We can get a package from Abel for $1000, but hoping to spend half that.

We'll be leaving NY Sunday morning and returning the following Sunday.

If anybody has one available, let me know ASAP. We'd like to sort this out this afternoon.

Thanks!

Hi Everyone,

I'm a documentary story consultant who teaches at the top U.S. documentary program at UC Berkeley.

I'm offering a new, 6-month coaching circle for 5 committed documentary filmmakers. You'll get detailed critiques on 3 cuts, advice for structuring your film, peer support and eight virtual teleseminars.

You can live anywhere in the world to participate.

Learn more at http://newdocediting.com/land/innercircle/

This program is perfect for filmmakers needing help structuring an engaging documentary. I use innovative techniques for crafting films that are as compelling as narrative films. The cost is half the price of my story consulting services for a similar amount of time.

The New Doc Inner Circle begins Tuesday, August 17th. I have two openings left.

If you think this might be right for you, I invite you to find out more about this great coaching program today: http://newdocediting.com/land/innercircle/

To Your Success,

Karen Everett
Documentary Story Consultant

We’re looking for students who have experience with Final Cut, Compressor, DVD Studio Pro and Photoshop BUT we are happy and willing to train the right candidate.
