CALL FOR ENTRIES

Scottish Documentary Institute is pleased to announce that Bridging the Gap 8 is now open for applications!

We are looking for Scottish-based filmmakers to make 10 minute documentaries on the theme of SHIFT. We want films to be told in the first person – either by the filmmaker or the main character.

12 ideas will be short-listed on the basis of the proposal and supporting materials. In the following weeks they will be developed through weekend workshops so that they can be pitched to a panel of experts who will commission the final 5 projects in December 2010. The films, to be delivered by April 2011, are intended for distribution in cinemas and festivals.

Who can apply?
This scheme is open to all filmmakers based in Scotland, and particularly aims to bridge the gap between training/graduation and a first commission, and those filmmakers who have not made films for the big screen. We are especially interested in filmmakers from diverse and under-represented backgrounds. We cannot accept applications from students in full time education.

DEADLINE: 6 October 2010

For further details please visit our website or contact Flore on f.cosquer@eca.ac.uk | 0131 2216204

Supported by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland, Highlands and Islands Enterprise & ERDF via Screen HI, Edinburgh College of Art, home of Scottish Documentary Institute.

DocuClub in September!

We are happy to announce a partnership with Women Make Movies for our September DocuClub. The screening will take place on Wednesday, September 29, 7 p.m., at 92YTribeca (Take 1, A/C/E to Canal Street).

We will screen a rough cut of FLAT DADDY [www.flatdaddydocumentary.com] by Nara Garber and Betsy Nagler. As military families across the country continue to endure the deployment of loved ones to Afghanistan and Iraq, many attempt to fill the void with “Flat Daddies” and “Heroes on a Stick,” life-sized cardboard cutouts of their husbands, wives, sons and daughters serving overseas. Using these two-dimensional surrogates as a connecting thread, the documentary tells the stories of four such families, from suburban Minnesota, the Bronx, Las Vegas and rural Maine, as they unfold over the course of a year. Each family represents a unique perspective on the war effort and the difficulties of deployment; together, they weave a nuanced narrative of how military families are coping in post-9/11 America as combat operations enter their tenth year.

Co-Director/Producer/Director of Photography Nara Garber divides her time between directing, producing, shooting, and editing. Often wearing many hats on the same project, Garber produces educational documentaries for Carnegie Hall and has helmed productions for major corporations while also collaborating on provocative PSAs for The Point Foundation and the political satirists, Billionaires for Bush. As a DP, she has dragged camera equipment across five continents in pursuit of the perfect shot. In 2009, a documentary assignment took her on a tour of American military bases in Iraq where many of the men and women serving volunteered the opinion that deployment is harder on the families back home. Garber hopes that FLAT DADDY will help bring that statement to life for a larger audience.

Co-Director/Producer/Editor Betsy Nagler is a Brooklyn-based writer and filmmaker. Her producing and directing credits include work for the website of the Working Families Party, for the television show BLUE’S CLUES, and short narrative films shown at the Seattle and Chicago Film Festivals. In 2005, she completed ‘DO, a documentary on how people feel about their hair that received funding from the New York State Council on the Arts through the Brooklyn Arts Council Community Arts Regrant Program. She and Nara Garber then received a NYSCA Individual Artists' Grant for FLAT DADDY in 2008. Nagler earned her B.A. at Stanford and her M.F.A. at New York University.

For her first film, Producer Peggy Sutton directed and produced SQUONKUMENTARY. Selected for the 2005 New York IFP Market, the documentary also screened at the Three Rivers Film Festival, Rehoboth Beach International Film Festival and the 2006 Bend Film Festival. Over the past 18 years, her work as a script supervisor has ranged from big budget movies like MEN IN BLACK II to indies such as POLLOCK.

FLAT DADDY is a fiscally sponsored project of Women Make Movies.

Our moderator will be Rose Vincelli, the Program Manager for the Independent Filmmaker Project [www.ifp.org], specifically focusing on curating and producing the Independent Filmmaker Labs, an immersive workshop assisting first-time Documentary and Narrative feature directors with distribution and exhibition strategies, as well as the Project Forum of Independent Film Week. From 2005-07, she was a programmer for the SILVERDOCS Documentary Festival, helping to grow the festival in its inaugural years and working primarily to curate the Shorts Competition. Vincelli recently produced the short documentaries TRANSPOSITION and NO ONE WANTS TO EAT THE PARSLEY. She lives and cooks in Brooklyn.

Admission is free for current DocuClub members and $8 for non-members.

For this screening, only DocuClub members need to RSVP at docuclub@artsengine.net. Our previous screenings have sold out and although admission for non-members is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Membership is an annual $50 and it includes free admission to all DocuClub events. It takes five minutes to join online:

Greenlit: Developing Factual / Reality TV Ideas From Concept to Pitch by Nicola Lees

Do you have a documentary project that you are dying to pitch to a TV network, but don’t know where to start? Have you tried pitching it and had the door slammed in your face (several times)? Are you frustrated with being fobbed off? Are you losing confidence in your idea, even though deep down you know it’s a great concept? Is is something you did? Or said? Why are the buyers just not that into you? Don’t despair, you’re not alone in your frustration (although it can feel that way)!

I’m Nicola Lees, experienced development producer, and founder of TV Mole. I’ve spent more than 13 years in the international TV business, and have developed written and pitched hundreds of documentary, docu-drama, multi-platform and reality series for broadcasters such as the BBC, Discovery,Nat Geo, History, TLC and the The Travel Channel, and have won approximately 80 commissions in the UK and USA. I have written a comprehensive guide to the frustrating and often confusing world of TV commissioning, wherever you are in the world.

I’ve interviewed 50 top industry names – producers and buyers – to find out what works, and what doesn’t. You’ll get advice from:

* 10 TV development producers – who have a combined experience of 50+ years of developing and pitching ideas at all levels, from trainee researcher to creative director, and
* 20 senior executives from internationally successful independent production companies who have sold some of the world’s most successful shows, to
* 16 channel executives – the people to whom you will pitch your ideas, who between them have worked at
* 18 TV channels – their experience and advice spans commercial and public service broadcasting; cable, terrestrial and satellite channels; documentary, reality, entertainment, specialist factual (science, history, arts, religion and natural history) and multi-platform programming, in
* 7 countries across 4 continents

I also incorporated advice from a Hollywood agent, several video editors, a storytelling consultant, two production managers and four commercial rights experts.

Collectively, the people who will share their insider knowledge with you have originated, pitched, bought or produced some of the most successful, award-winning TV shows and documentaries in the world, including The Age of Stupid, Touching the Void and Murderball. You are getting hundreds of years of experience condensed into a few hundred pages.

"As a Development Producer with a fair few years in the field, I wasn't sure how much I'd get out of this book...it was worth every penny." (Amazon reviewer)

"After 25 years in this crazy business, it's the first time I have seen TV commissioning so comprehensively and entertainingly dissected." (Mike Slee, Independent Film & TV Producer/Director)

I am looking for an experienced editor (preferably in the Bay Area, but not a deal-breaker) to help me finish a feature-length documentary called TEACHED. 



The film provides a candid look at how and why, fifty years after Brown vs. Board of Education desegregated American schools, black and Hispanic students are still performing far behind white students. The film takes the audience into urban schools where the problems are most severe, to talk to the students, parents, principals and, most importantly, the teachers working there to understand: why the race-based "achievement gap" persists; how it is connected to cycles of poverty, underemployment and incarceration; and what could be done to eliminate it. 



I have nearly 200 hours of footage shot mostly with a Sony EX-1 in 1080p24, an 80 min rough cut, and a website where you can watch the trailer and get more information: www.loudspeakerfilms.com.

I'd like to find an editor in the next 2-3 weeks, give you the footage to watch, and then work with you to wrap this puppy up before the end of 2010. I know what stories the footage is ready to tell, but I don't have enough experience to do it. I need an experienced editor who has sophisticated story-telling skills (some of the stories are quite sensitive), great technical ability (FCP), and a strong belief that all kids can learn and achieve at high levels if they are given the chance. I'd also like to find an editor who believes that a documentary film can be compelling and educational and inspiring...and ALSO a beautiful work of art.


Please send your resume and links to your work (or any questions) to me at kamis@loudspeakerfilms.com if you are interested in this position. I expect the work will take 8-12 weeks, and payment will be competitive.

 thanks-
Kelly

DC Folks...

Docs In Progress returns this Friday, September 24 with Trailer Night. You will be able to provide feedback on documentary trailers and might even be able to get feedback on one of your own since we've got one open film slot. Read on for details.

This workshop-style screening program allows filmmakers who may be at an earlier stage of development with their films to benefit by the moderated feedback of audiences who have traditionally provided feedback on full rough cuts. The filmmakers are looking for audience feedback not only on the effectiveness of the trailer itself, but on the concepts of their films – tremendously helpful as they continue in production and post-production of their films. The evening is being moderated by Erica Ginsberg (Executive Director) and Adele Schmidt (Program Advisor) from Docs In Progress. This program is organized by Docs In Progress and sponsored by The Documentary Center at the George Washington University.

WHEN?
Friday, September 24, 2010
7:00-9:30 pm

WHERE?
The Documentary Center at The George Washington University
School of Media and Public Affairs Building
805 21st Street, NW (21st and H Streets)
Auditorium B-07 (one floor down from street level)
Washington DC 20037

Closest Metro: Foggy Bottom. Limited street parking free after 6:30 pm. Garage parking nearby on H and I Streets.

TICKETS?
$10 suggested donation ($5 suggested for Docs Insiders). Cash only at the door. No advance ticketing.


WHAT'S SCREENING?

A Different Drummer
by Jonathan Gruber and Robert Jackson
In the mid-1960s, Father Stamand, a white priest working helped change the lives of African-American youths in Washington DC's Anacostia neighborhood by putting together the VIP Drum and Bugle Corps which was one of the first all black drum corps. Now more than 40 years later, five of the original members are seeking to carry on Father Stamand's legacy by encouraging a new generation of drummers and buglers.

Inside: Human Trafficking in the U.S.
by David Gedney
While sex trafficking is often viewed as a problem affecting other countries, it is a growing issue right here in the United States, including in Washington DC. This film is an investigation into the trafficking and exploitation of young girls.

Hidden Books
by Sam Hampton
This portrait piece of Kumi Korf explores the lifeforce which inspires an artist. The Japanese-American creates architectural designs, prints, paintings, and artist books which are held by the Library of Congress, the New York Public Library, and the Tate Library, among others. We travel with Korf from her home in Ithaca, New York to her homeland of Japan as we explore what it means to be an artist today.

I Didn't Know
by Ron Minor
Kidney Disease is a health epidemic, especially in minority communities. African-Americans in particular are nearly 5 times as likely to develop kidney disease than Caucasians, often as a result of diet and prevalence of other diseases like hypertension and diabetes. We hear from experts and follow people living with various kidney ailments, some of whom are among the 126,000 on a waiting list to receive a kidney.

Married in Spandex
by Devin Gallagher and Allison Kole
As they begin a life's journey together, Amanda and Rachel are determined to make their wedding day a unique and memorable affair. They travel from Philadelphia to Iowa for their nuptials. But at a time when same-sex weddings are still seen as a political act, can the couple convince their friends and family to get on board and support the relationship...not to mention the gold lame wedding outfits?

Wild Card Slot
by You?
Yes, we have room for one more trailer. If you have a 2-7 minute documentary trailer you'd like feedback on from a Docs In Progress audience, bring it with you to tonight's screening. We will select one wild card submission at random. Note that we can only screen DVDs or VHS tapes. No Quicktime files, AVIs, or Windows Media files even if they are on a DVD.

New York City-based folks-
Indie Documentary Film seeks MBA-type with passion for the arts/film

MediaGroove LLC is seeking a Associate Producer with a strong business background to help project manage and coordinate resources for our documentary Get It All Out – a feature-length story about the life of a late, charismatic, yet unknown Pittsburgh musician/ vocalist / poet/ humanitarian and the percussive post-punk/ jazz/ worldbeat/ avant-funk band he was in during the early 1980s. Our protagonist was truly a likable, inspired character, and it doesn’t hurt that he was a compassionate human being who could actually sing and write decent lyrics. If you have experience in collaborating on dynamic teams, contributing your best ideas, are not afraid of hard work and take pride in getting things done – we should talk!

In short, we are reanimating the lost musical DNA of an underground sound that never reached a wide audience, and having a blast doing it (by re-recording, remixing and releasing an amazing songbook of material as a companion soundtrack). Film-wise, we’re 2.5 years in the making and we’ve already completed 2/3 of our planned interviews. Breaking the rules of the typical talking head “rockumentary” – we’re incorporating the use of animation/motion graphics, CGI visualization, social media and other creative digital storytelling techniques to elevate the storyline in contemporary ways.

The right candidate will play a key role in setting the stage to refine and finish the film so this is a great opportunity to be part of an experienced team on the excavation of a dusty gem of a narrative. This position is non-paid (though we will cover working production meals, pre-approved necessary expenses) and will provide you with valuable experience and connections.

Qualifications & Responsibilities:

• This is the ideal project for an MBA with a passion for the arts. Someone who wants to use their professional business (and or marketing) skills outside of work to help bring a film through post-production, fundraising, and see it distributed to national/international festivals, Netflix, Amazon, cable/satellite, etc.

• Strong prior knowledge of Microsoft Project or other web-based project management tools (Basecamp or similar.)

• You will work with the film’s Producer to manage timelines, deliverables, set milestones and hold people to reaching them. Great organizational and detail skills a must!

• Commitment to a minimum of 1 to 2 days per week on a part-time basis (starting immediately)

• MUST be NYC-area based and able to attend meetings with producer, director, assistant editors and archivist.

• Interest in music as a force for social change, progressive politics, multiple genres of music (e.g. – jazz, rock, afrobeat/afro-pop, funk, dub/reggae, post-punk, etc.) – helpful, wouldn't hurt –- but not necessary.

• Excellent verbal and written communication skills.

To apply:
We hope you’re the right fit to help us with our quirky, passionate, musical doc! So, please send a brief cover letter and CV/resume, reel/links to projects you’ve managed and/or worked on, and please put "Associate Documentary Producer" in the subject line. Preference given to candidates with at least 3 solid employment/internship references and prior film or collaborative arts team project experience.

Hello friends and colleagues!

I'm reaching out to you from Etsy.com, a vibrant online marketplace for handmade and vintage that I'm currently doing some consulting work for. Etsy has been in existence since 2005, and celebrates craftsmanship from the retired birdhouse maker to the Persian rug weaver to the 3rd generation letterpress printer. It has had a small but creative video presence on the web and is aiming to produce more journalistic and video content for viewers.

Etsy.com stories range from about 3 – 5 minutes in length and bring the sellers on the site — and their objects — to life. Currently, the site features three main video series: Handmade Portraits, which profile Etsy sellers, who may be artists, craftspeople, or vintage mavens; There's No Place Like Here, which feature the interiors of wonderful, collection-filled homes; and Process, where the methods tell the story. In addition, we often produce fun and unexpected How-To projects.

We are looking for producers and directors who can shoot and edit their own videos and who might lend their own unique, artistic mark to our productions (we are shooting more and more frequently with the Canon 5D and 7D). We are primarily interested in producers outside the New York area, and are also eager to expand our stable of producers to those based outside the U.S. Etsy has sellers in more than 150 countries, and we know that there are stories spanning the globe.

Please spread the word about our search for talent, and if interested (even you New Yorkers), send reels and resumes to blevison@etsy.com. Also, please don't hesitate to check out etsy.tv to peruse our video archive. Thank you!

All best,
Beth Levison

TESTIMONIALS
"Stefanie Dworkin is knowledgeable and adept at encouraging students at all levels. We worked through a basic introduction to Final Cut Pro 6. I came from a fairly tech-phobic background and found that Ms. Dworkin instilled confidence through her clarity and ease working with Final Cut Pro– showing me ways to problem solve based on my instincts while navigating the program. Stefanie keenly answered all questions and tailored the lesson plans and information to each student's individual needs. The class itself, had a very interactive tone with students learning from each other's questions while being guided in a very sure-footed manner by Ms. Dworkin. I highly recommend this class to anyone seeking to get acquainted with Final Cut Pro or sharpen their skills!" D. Cameron-Scorsese, Filmmaker/Actress

"Final Cut Pro 6 is definitely a much needed tool if you want to stay ahead of the game. With a creative innovator like Stefanie Dworkin teaching you the 'ins and outs, you'll be amazed at what you can do frame by frame. The huge sense of accomplishment you feel at the end of each class speaks for itself...For me..the goal was about building from that foundation and making the connection last... Overall, a truly SUPERB class!!"

DocuClub in October!

Our October DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, October 20, 7 p.m., at DCTV [http://www.dctvny.org/], located at 87 Lafayette Street (at Walker; take N/R/Q/6 trains to Canal).

We will screen a rough cut of AN INTERVIEW WITH SIMONE WEIL by Julia Haslett. What response does seeing human suffering demand of us? Haslett seeks an answer in the controversial French philosopher and activist Simone Weil (1909-1943), whose life and work took on this question in a dramatic way. Adopting Weil as her guide through an engaging and profound moral landscape, Haslett goes on a journey to understand Weil’s loss of faith in revolutionary politics and the spiritual awakening that followed. Driving her obsession with Weil is the interwoven story of suffering within Haslett’s own family – her father's suicide when she was 17 and now her older brother's severe depression. When Weil dies from self-starvation at the height of World War II, Haslett is left wondering if death was the logical conclusion to Weil’s philosophy and her attempt to share the pain of others? The result is a deeply moving and unique documentary about what it means to bear witness to suffering, both near and far.

Director/Editor/Producer Julia Haslett makes expressionistic documentaries about contemporary and historical subjects. She is producer/director of the highly acclaimed WORLDS APART (2003) series about cross-cultural medicine, and producer of the companion hour-long documentary HOLD YOUR BREATH (2005), which broadcast on PBS in 2007. Her documentary shorts HURT & SAVE (2001), FLOODED (2003), ECLIPSED (2007), and PURE & SIMPLE (2008) have screened at numerous venues, including the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, Rooftop Films, and the Black Maria Film Festival. She has worked at WGBH-Boston, the Discovery Channel, and as a Filmmaker-in-Residence at the Stanford University Center for Biomedical Ethics. Haslett was awarded a MacDowell Colony Fellowship to advance her work on AN INTERVIEW WITH SIMONE WEIL, which is her first feature-length film.

Producer Fabrizia Galvagno has worked as a Project Development Manager and Producer with Arte, National Geographic, PBS, and TV Ontario. She developed LEONARDO DA VINCI: THE MAN BEHIND THE TURIN SHROUD? (2002) for National Geographic; RICE GIRLS (2003, Venice Film Festival) recently broadcast on Al Jazeera International; THE PRIME MINISTER AND THE PRESs (2003) for PBS; and GELATO: AN ENDLESS PASSION (2005), which aired on the Sundance Channel.

Producer Enrico Rossini Cullen is the Director of Development and External Affairs at Arts Engine. He has been a consulting producer on several of Arts Engine’s Big Mouth films, including ELECTION DAY (2008), ARCTIC SON (2007), and PUSHING THE ELEPHANT (2010), which premiered in June at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival in New York City.

Cinematographer Thomas Torres Cordova is a filmmaker and installation artist. He shot the award-winning PBS-broadcast documentary STRANGE FRUIT (2002) directed by Joel Katz. His films/videos have aired on the Sundance Channel and screened at numerous festivals. His latest film, EVERYBODY LOVES THE SUNSHINE (2007), was featured last January in a solo show at the Amie and Tony James Gallery in New York City.

Consulting Editor Jonathan Oppenheim’s editing credits include SISTER HELEN, which won the documentary directing award at Sundance and CHILDREN UNDERGROUND, which was nominated for an Oscar and won the Sundance Special Jury Prize, Gotham, and IDA awards. He edited the classic documentary feature PARIS IS BURNING, and edited and co-produced Laura Poitras’ THE OATH.

Our moderator will be Shaady Salehi, Deputy Director at Active Voice, a nonprofit media strategy organization. Working as the intermediary between film producers and NGOs, Shaady specializes in the use of film and media to support long-term social change. She has spoken at film festivals and conferences nationwide, including SILVERDOCS, Making Your Media Matter, NAMAC and the National Black Programming Consortium's New Media Summit. Prior to joining the Active Voice team, she did her graduate studies in Cultural Anthropology, focusing on the role of the Internet in provoking cultural resistance and social change among urban youth in Iran. She holds an M.A. in Anthropology from the University of California, Davis, and is currently enrolled in Columbia University's Strategic Communications program, with an emphasis in communications for social justice.

Admission is free for current DocuClub members and $6 for non-members.

If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to docuclub@artsengine.net [docuclub@artsengine.net].

Membership is an annual $50 and it includes free admission to all DocuClub events. It takes five minutes to join online:

Seattle-area Assistance Needed!

Hi, I'm requesting camera help for an acquaintance in the Seattle area, who is one of the blogosphere's most promising talents. He is a Harvard MBA who is posting information and videos about how the REAL economy works to transfer wealth into the pockets of those who need it least. He already has an excellent series of Powerpoint-style videos on the Web, and is presently putting together some simple lecture-video tutorials. The content is wonderful, but his production technique borders on stone-age... (White balance and good audio would go a long way by themselves.) Compensation, if any, would be minimal, but any help at all with the shooting would make a big impact, and be greatly appreciated. Please send inquiries to Damon, at: strabes23@gmail.com
(It may take a day or two for reply.)
Thanks for reading!

I've been helping out an education school (ie teacher training program) that uses video extensively in its curriculum. We film in great schools with great teachers, then cut that material up to demonstrate discrete techniques of teaching, both content oriented and classroom management oriented.

We're looking to bring on some extra help with the video work, including a ton of assistant editing work and some editing and shooting work. It's not documentary film work exactly, but I think it would be a great opportunity for someone getting started to get some serious experience with Final Cut and doc-style shooting.

Canadian D-Worders:

I'm producing my second comedic music video for Funny Or Die. It takes place in Toronto but we're shooting here in New York. We're looking for a shooter up there in Canada to do an opening Toronto skyline shot on a Canon 5D or 7D. Our budget is ridiculously tiny but we can afford to pay you a little bit for an hour or two of work. This new video is for a very popular Canadian indie rock supergroup. Here's a link to see our previous video, which has been viewed around 130,000 times:

FILMMAKER SERVICES INTERNSHIP at Arts Engine (DocuClub and fiscal sponsorship)

DocuClub Program is a film screening series of documentaries in rough-cut stage. Each month, a filmmaker presents her film as a works-in-progress. Afterwards, a moderator facilitates a discussion between filmmaker and audience. Constructive feedback from these sessions informs the finished film. Past films that have been screened at DocuClub include BORN INTO BROTHELS, PRODIGAL SONS, and DISTURBING THE UNIVERSE: WILLIAM KUNSTLER.

Responsibilities include:
- Participate in the selection process for DocuClub screenings by soliciting and previewing submissions
- Provide written feedback to DocuClub submissions
- Assist with newsletter, writing, copy editing
- Assist with set up and break down after DocuClub screening
- Keep track of RSVPs to screening
- Research potential partnerships/sponsors for sessions

Fiscal Sponsorship Program is a fundraising tool that serves as an alternative to a filmmaker establishing her own 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation. It allows a filmmaker’s non-commercial project to apply for funding from organizations requiring that the recipient have nonprofit status. As fiscal sponsor, Arts Engine, Inc., serves as the nonprofit tax-exempt umbrella organization that accepts and administers contributions made to a filmmaker’s project.

Arts Engine has served as fiscal sponsor for such outstanding films as THE TRIALS OF DARRYL HUNT by Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg, PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL by Gini Reticker, FAVELA RISING by Matt Mochary and Jeff Zimbalist, and GOD GREW TIRED OF US: THE STORY OF THE LOST BOYS OF SUDAN by Christopher Dillon Quinn and Tommy Walker.

Responsibilities include:
- Research grant/funding resources for filmmakers
- Research news and updates from fiscally-sponsored filmmakers

A love for and general knowledge of documentary films is highly desired. Must be able to work nights once a month for the DocuClub screening.


A commitment of 2 days a week (14 hours) would be highly appreciated. The internship is unpaid, but college credit can be arranged.

If interested, please email Ashley Panzera at ashley@artsengine.net.

Dear Aaron,
I just joined D-word today and read your post.
I am very interested and I'm quite sure I fit the description TeacherU is looking for as editing and production associate. I worked for a similar project in New York City shooting video at Innercity Highschools by the name of Teachscape http://www.teachscape.com/html/ts/nps/index.html- sponsored by the BIll& Melinda Gates Foundation. I have a ton of experience working independently on FCP and shooting with different pro-sumer HDV camera's. I just sent TeacherU my profile at job@teacheru.org. Would it help to send you my resume? Hope to hear from you. All the best, Corinne van der Borch

Interaction Design intern for music Documentary Film/e-Book project (NYC)

Indie, feature-length documentary in progress seeks an exceptional, part-time (1 to 2 days a week) Interaction Designer (or a team of 2 designers) to join our team in creating a new kind of historical/contemporary music documentary. Digital storytelling across screens and platforms is coming to the documentary medium – so help us be part of the Doc. 2.0 evolution!

The ideal candidate will have a background in design and usability, and a deep appreciation for the value of building indie brands that resonate and attract an audience for all the right reasons. You are not only a phenomenal multi-tasker, but someone who simply gets sh!t done. You are steeped and versed not only in social media tools, but in ways to connect and tell a narrative through them. You love docs, but wish the stories they told existed in more tangible, interactive ways.

Working with the producer, director and archivist of this film, you’ll come up with ways to grow and extend our existing process (we’ve got 5000+ fans on Facebook, have nearly 3 years of more than 40 interviews shot in 17 cities across the US, and are starting an 12 to 15 piece orchestra for filmed performances in Brooklyn in 2011). You will help us share and market the film as we continue to grow our audience – both now and after the film’s release.

Duties:
• You will lead the co-development of a 2 to 3 year roadmap for social media and off-line audience growth and engagement (prior to and after the film’s festival debut).
• You will help select and lead a team (editor and designer) in the co-development of an Apple iBook – destined for display on the iPad, complete with original poetry, lyrics, illustrations, photos and embedded video clips (using the ePUB format & HTML5). This project will be filmed for inclusion in the documentary.

Prerequisites (you basically breathe software, not intimidated by anything, right?):
• A background in interaction design, UX/UI work, and working on interactive media teams – yep.
• Experience with Adobe inDesign CS5, Photoshop/AfterEffects, DVD authoring and workflow – check.
• WordPress development and project management experience – yes!
• Experience with video production and editing (FinalCut, iMovie) – {very helpful}.
• A background in traditional filmmaking less important than dexterity in new media production, collaboration and development for web 2.0, DVD, and television projects.

Why is this an internship?: We know what needs to get done, but we are also on the hunt for finishing-funds for our film, which means that even though we will start our mighty "crowdsourced" funding effort in Jan. 2011 (via the usual suspects of Kickstarter or IndieGoGo) – we are not able to pay anyone yet. We do have 1 intern working on the team now for college credit, and hope that this project will be just intriguing enough to find the right person to help.

To apply: Please send your resume/CV and cover letter (personal references appreciated) and links to projects you’ve managed and/or worked on to info@mediagroove.com. We appreciate serious applicants with relevant experience and thoughtful responses. Lastly, please put "Interaction Design Intern" in the subject line. Thanks!

International workshop for creative documentary projects from Central and Eastern Europe
March / June / October 2011

To apply with your documentary project, please fill out our online entry form .
Applying is free.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: JANUARY 15, 2011

Individual meetings with selected applicants: Febuary 10 – 13, 2011 (TBC)
Final selection of projects: February 18, 2011
Participation fee payment deadline: February 25, 2011
1st Session – Find Your Way: March 7 – 12, 2011 (TBC)
2nd Session – Production Development: mid-June 2011 (TBC)
3rd Session – The Market Opens: end of October 2011 (TBC)

Ex Oriente Film is a year-long international workshop that supports the development and funding of creative documentary films from Central and Eastern Europe. At three workshops that take place in the course of one year, directors and producers develop their projects and funding strategies and benefit from the assistance and valuable advice provided by established European producers, directors, AV experts and commissioning editors. An important aspect of Ex Oriente Film are the year-round online sessions and consultations led by the lead and guest tutors of the workshop. The Ex Oriente Film training programme is completed with the co-production meeting East European Forum that gives documentary filmmakers a chance to pitch their project and secure funding from West European and North American broadcasters. The three residential workshops and the East European Forum pitching are supplemented by our Follow-up Support that keeps track of the projects until their completion.

Participants
Out of all submitted projects, 14 projects – 28 participants in director/producer teams – are selected to attend the workshop. Preference is given to filmmakers based in Central and Eastern Europe, however, we may pick up to 4 projects from outside the region.

Participation Fee
The participation fee is EUR 1,500 per selected project (includes all accommodation, coffee breaks and lunches during the three workshops for 1-2 pers.). The payment deadline is Monday, February 25, 2011.

Scholarships
Participants from Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia may apply for a scholarship to cover part of the accommodation and participation fees. Applicants must prove that there is no possibility of scholarship in their own country and that the project is not supported by any development funding.

Conditions of Participation
Participants must be proficient in English. All workshop sessions must be attended by both the producer and the director.

1st Session: Find Your Way
Location: Czech Republic
Probable dates: March 7 – 12, 2011 (TBC)
The first session of the workshop deals with inspiration, focusing on the story and the protagonists, analyzing international aspects of the projects, and drafting the basic concept for production and funding. Tutors confirmed for the session include Marijke Rawie (expert consultant, workshop moderator, The Netherlands); Mikael Opstrup (lead production tutor, producer and consultant, Denmark); Jean-Pierre Rehm (1st session guest tutor, FIDMarseille director, France); Erez Laufer (editor, Israel); Martin Kollár (photographer and cinematographer, Slovakia); Miroslav Janek (director, cinematographer, Czech Republic), and others. Apart from individual meetings, group sessions and film development lectures on storytelling and funding, we are planning a session by Bruno Felix of Submarine, or Andy Whittaker’s (Dogwoof, UK) session about the sales potential of documentaries, about finding new ways to fund, create and distribute documentaries, and an overview session on visual styles in documentary film by Martin Kollár. Erez Laufer will have a session on “Dramaturgical Rules in Documentary Film” as well as dramaturgical consultations with all participants.

2nd Session: Production Development
Location: Bratislava, Slovakia
Dates: mid-June 2011 (TBC)
The second session deals with financing, budgeting according to EU standards, legal aspects of co-production, strategies for selecting commissioning editors and an appropriate television format, as well as a deeper creative development of the film projects. The second session includes the following key subjects: “A Day of Budgeting”, “A Day of Legal Aspects” ,“A Day of Financial Tour”. In 2011 we plan to have the second session in Slovakia’s capital, Bratislava. We think that Bratislava has the ideal geographical position to attract Austrian and Slovak filmmakers and film professionals since Vienna is only 40 km away.

3rd Session: The Market Opens
Location: Jihlava, Czech Republic
Dates: End of October 2011 (TBC)
In October 2011, the workshop will be completed with the East European Forum pitching sessions that will boost funding efforts of the attending projects. The third session deals mainly with practical skills that are required for the presentation of the project and pitching. However, its main theoretical themes are distribution plan and sales, post-pitching negotiation techniques for documentaries, as well as communication strategies to get European broadcasters involved in the project. The theoretical parts of this workshop discuss specific examples of international co-production using case studies presented by commissioning editors, producers and distributors. The session is concluded with the East European Pitching Forum and Feedback Round Tables with selected tutors.

The selection results for the 2011 Ex Oriente Film will be posted at www.DOKweb.net on Friday, February 18, 2011.

DocuClub in December!

Our December DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, December 8, 7 p.m., at DCTV, located at 87 Lafayette Street (at Walker; take N/R/Q/6 trains to Canal).

We will screen a rough cut of (A)SEXUAL by Angela Tucker. The documentary follows the growth of a community that experiences no sexual attraction. In 2000, David Jay came out to his parents. He was asexual and was fine with it. And he was not alone. Studies show that 1% of the population is asexual. But in a society obsessed with sex, how do you deal with life as an outsider? Combining intimate interviews, verite footage, and animation with fearless humor and pop culture imagery, David and our four other characters grapple with this universal question and the outcomes might surprise you.

A Brooklyn based filmmaker and writer, Director Angela Tucker was the Director of Production at Big Mouth Films, a social issue documentary production company that is a project of Arts Engine, Inc. There, she produced PUSHING THE ELEPHANT (IDFA, Independent Lens), the Emmy-nominated documentary, DEADLINE (NBC), ELECTION DAY (PBS’ POV) and BEYOND THE STEPS: ALVIN AILEY AMERICAN DANCE THEATER (Great Performances). She directed two pieces for The National Black Programming Consortium and ITVS’ Initiative, The Masculinity Project, entitled INVISIBLE MEN and a fiction short film, THE BIRTHDAY GIRL. She directs and produces educational videos for non-profit organizations such as Johns Hopkins Medical Center’s Project Restore and GLSEN, in addition to producing spots for Nickelodeon. In 2010, Tucker was a Yaddo fellow.

Having worked in various capacities at Big Mouth since 2003, producer Beth Davenport brings over eight years of production and outreach experience in television, commercials and award-winning documentaries for P.O.V., Sundance Channel, BBC and Arte France as well as directing advocacy videos and short films. Film credits include: the Emmy-nominated film DEADLINE, Thomas Balmes’ WRONGFUL DEATH and ELECTION DAY. Beth is currently a producer at Arts Engine, Inc./Big Mouth Films and is producing THE DISHES, directed by Katy Chevigny and directing PUSHING THE ELEPHANT, a feature-length documentary (Human Rights Watch Film Festival, IDFA).

Producer Katy Chevigny, Arts Engine’s co-founder and senior director, is a documentary filmmaker, entrepreneur and nonprofit manager. For fifteen years, Chevigny has advocated for a diverse media culture, one that illuminates important stories and amplifies voices not often heard in the mainstream media. Chevigny founded Arts Engine and its predecessor Big Mouth Productions. As a film director, Chevigny most recently directed the film ELECTION DAY, which premiered at the South By Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival in March 2007 and was broadcast on public television by POV in 2008. Chevigny also co-directed Deadline (2004), an Emmy-nominated documentary about the dramatic events that took place in Illinois in 2003 concerning capital punishment. The film aired on NBC in July 2004 and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, won a CINE Golden Eagle Grand Jury Award and the Thurgood Marshall Journalism Award. Chevigny has produced many award-winning documentaries at Arts Engine, including: ARCTIC SON, JOURNEY TO THE WEST: CHINESE MEDICINE TODAY, NUYORICAN DREAM, INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY AND OUTSIDE LOOKING IN: TRANSRACIAL ADOPTION IN AMERICA.

Co-Producer Jolene Pinder has worked at Arts Engine for the past three years. Prior to becoming the Festival and Outreach Director, she was an Associate Producer at Big Mouth Films (the production arm of Arts Engine). She is currently a co-producer on the Arts Engine work-in-progress (A)SEXUAL. In her role in the production department, she was Associate Producer for Outreach and Distribution on Arts Engine’s latEST RELEASES, ARCTIC SON AND ELECTION DAY. JOLENE’S PERSONAL FILM Bismillah was a finalist for the International Documentary Association’s David Wolper Award, won first place in the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ College Television Awards (Student Emmys) and was the recipient of a CINE Golden Eagle Award. Her short FILM LITTLE FOUNTAINS screened at MoMA as part of her work with the UnionDocs Collaborative.

Editor Michelle Chang was the Co-Editor on the documentary film CAMP VICTORY, AFGHANISTAN, and an Associate Editor on PUSHING THE ELEPHANT. She has assisted on a variety of other feature documentary films including WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS?, THE NINE LIVES OF MARION BARRY (HBO), and IF GOD IS WILLING AND DA CREEK DON’T RISE (HBO). She also attended the Sundance Documentary Edit and Story Labs in 2008 as an assistant and in 2009 as a fellow. Prior to becoming an editor, she worked as an Associate Producer for the television newsmagazines 20/20 and Primetime.

Our moderator will be Ingrid Kopp. She is the director of U.S. Shooting People, an international networking organization for independent filmmakers. She began her career in the Documentaries department at Channel 4 Television in the U.K. While there, she worked across original commissions and documentary acquisitions and ran a series of workshops for emerging filmmakers. Kopp moved to New York in 2004 to work as an associate producer for a number of independent production companies before taking her current post at Shooting People. She writes about film, social media and technology for various publications and teaches Digital Bootcamp workshops for filmmakers. She also works as a documentary programming consultant for film festivals, broadcasters and foundations.

Admission is free for current DocuClub members and $6 for non-members.
If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to docuclub@artsengine.net.
Membership is an annual $50 and it includes free admission to all DocuClub events. It takes five minutes to join online:

Papers will be given in twenty-minute slots (up to a 10-page doubled spaced paper presented at normal talking speed with a few visual aids).

Students who wish to participate in the conference must submit a completed paper proposal form. The submission form can be found http://ftt.nd.edu/events/UndergraduateFilmTelevisionConference_000.shtml.

A panel comprised of Notre Dame faculty from the Department of Film, Television, and Theatre will select the best 30 papers from among the proposals received.

All selected conference participants must agree to attend both days of the conference.

Note: This is not an undergraduate film festival but an academic conference. Do not send student films. Student films may, of course, form part of a paper presentation but will not be screened outside the twenty-minute time allocation.

Deadline for proposals: Midnight of Monday, January 31, 2011 via email addressed to Magnan-Park.1@nd.edu with “ND Undergrad Conf 2011” in the subject heading.

For more information, contact:

Dr. Aaron Magnan-Park

ATTENTION EDITORS
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

The KAREN SCHMEER FILM EDITING FELLOWSHIP deadline is fast approaching: December 15, 2010.

The fellowship was created to honor the memory of gifted editor, Karen Schmeer ("Fast, Cheap, and Out of Control," "Fog of War," "Sergio"), who was killed in a car accident on January 29, 2010.

Karen always talked about how editors needed more recognition and support; the year-long fellowship will support the talents of an emerging editor while offering a tribute to Karen’s artistic achievements and her giving spirit.

The experience will include: a mentorship with an ACE (American Cinema Editors) editor, a class at the Manhattan Edit Workshop, festival passes to ACE EditFest in LA and NY, a SXSW Film Festival Badge, an Independent Film Festival of Boston Festival Chrome Pass, a gift certificate to Powell's books (Karen's favorite), a year-long membership to NY's DocuClub, and more.

Fellowship details, the application, and a bio of Karen are all here:

http://www.karenschmeer.com/

We're also making in the middle of a big fundraising push to ensure the longevity of the fellowship. A matching $25,000 grant is doubling all donations made before December 31, 2010 (up to $25,000). All donations are tax-deductible. We've already raised $14,000... we've got $11,000 to go! Can you help us reach our financial goal? We thank you. And emerging editors thank you.

(Berkeley, CA.) –Heist, a feature length documentary film exposing the origins and perpetrators behind the current economic crisis devastating the American working class has won the Roy W. Dean Film and Video Grant for 2011, which will provide Heist with $50,000 of in-kind production services.

Heist tells the hidden story of the systemic, multifaceted attack that, starting in the 1970s, transformed America’s well-regulated economy into a battlefield littered with foreclosed homes, runaway jobs, and broken dreams. The film draws on the best thinkers and grassroots activists to show how with ingenuity, fairness, and commitment, America can recover prosperity for all. Heist will be released in 2011.

The film had its World Premiere at The Sundance Film Festival in January 2010. The film has won various awards including Center for Documentary Studies Filmmaker Award at Full Frame Documentary Film Festival and a Special Jury Award at AFI Discovery Silverdocs Film Festival. In August 2010, the film participated in IDA DocuWeeks’ Theatrical Showcase at the IFC Center in NY and the ArcLight in LA.

FAHRVERGNüGEN!

Looking for a DP to shoot the last leg of the feature-length documentary on Volkswagen, Circle the Wagen.

EIGHT-DAY ROADTRIP from Los Angeles to Tucumcari, NM and back to take place between January 8th and 16th.

You will be following a ramshackle 1972 bus, it’s adventuresome owner, and willing best friend in their final attempt to save this bus from the scrap heap.

While the job does NOT PAY, all expenses will be provided for.

Adventure includes: the historic sights of Route 66; the Grand Canyon; Busses by the Bridge (an annual air-cooled Volkswagen campout and auto show) at Lake Havasu; and a climactic sunset finish on Santa Monica Pier – the West Coast terminus of Route 66. All of which will look gorgeous on your reel. Mucho margaritas will be consumed, along with at least one round of shots – once we’ve shot our martini.

Please refer to our website where you can see a short as well as an extended trailer of our film: www.circlethewagen.com

Sound up your alley? Contact director Ryan Green at ryan@circlethewagen.com. Please include a cover letter describing production experience that included travel, as well as a link to your documentary reel.

I'm seeking a cinematographer. I'm doing a documentary about New York artists struggling to find work to sustain themselves. I'm shooting some of it myself, but I need someone to help me with the portions I'm involved in, such as my own job search. I'm on a tight budget but I'm offering $50/day, and the days won't be long. I'm a recent graduate of NYU film school and you can read more about me at thinkpiecefilms.com. If you're interested please email me at neilorman@earthlink.net.

Any dinosaurs, er, artists out there still working with film? or planning to anytime soon?

I have a $1000 gift certificate with Kodak redeemable for any of their motion picture film stock. Instead of using it myself, I can sell it for $800 to anyone interested. Let me know as soon as you can – I have to use the certificate by the end of the year!

Brooklyn Apt. Available: January 1 – June 1

Hello. I'm going to Northampton Mass. for five months starting in January. and looking for a nice person or couple to rent a large room in my apt.

Sorry no pets or smoking in the building.

But there is bike storage in the ground floor hallway, which is great.

Hi D-Word,

I am seeking triple-threats – producer/shooter/editors – in Israel (ideally Tel Aviv), London, and Chennai, India. If not triple-threats, ideally a very strong producer/shooter who can build a team. Etsy.com is expanding its video program to include documentary and stylized shorts; I'm looking for filmmakers needing / wanting / open to projects that allow them to creatively stretch their wings.

Etsy stories average about 3 – 5 minutes in length and for the most part, bring the sellers on the site — and their objects — to life. Currently, we feature three main video series: Handmade Portraits, which profile those Etsy sellers; There's No Place Like Here, which feature the interiors of collection-filled homes; and Process, where the methods tell the story. The videos live on the etsy.com's blog.

We're shooting for high values – on the Canon 5D and 7D – but are open to other HDSLRs. Editing tends to happen in Final Cut Pro, but we've been able to work with freelancers who use other systems..

I've posted once before but am trying again – with these specific locations (others may contact me!) interested, please e-mail me yoru info. Thank you! And/or spread this around!

All best,
Beth Levison
