Hi Everyone,

Sort of an off topic request, but I am looking for a wedding photographer for October 10th, 2010. Its ideally suited for someone who is just starting out as the payment we have is $500. The location is the beautiful bucolic Catskill Mountains but we would pay for transportation from NYC or surrounding areas.

If you are interested (or know someone who is) please email me at jessicalenaedwards@gmail.com

Thanks!

INTERNSHIP

We are currently in postproduction on a feature doc with the working title "Give Up Tomorrow." It is a murder-mystery social-justice story set in the Philippines. Our offices located in Park Slope.

We’re seeking an intern to assist with post-production. Responsibilities will vary depending on individual’s skills but will include sub-titling and media management using Final Cut. There is a possibility to assist with graphics for anyone with Photoshop experience or an interest in learning it.

The position is unpaid, but we’ll cover transportation and working meals. School credit, general mentorship/advice, and credit on the final film will certainly be provided to excellent interns. The ideal candidate will be: bright, enthusiastic, self-motivated, and patient, – very attentive to detail, interested in the editorial process and documentary filmmaking – able to give 10-20 hours per week to the project (schedule flexible, open to discussion). Photoshop experience a plus.

Please send your cover letter and resume to michael@thoughtfulrobot.com

Thanks
Michael

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
