Hey all, I am a film major, but in school am not getting enough practical experience. I am friendly and easy to work with and innovative/adventurous. Is anyone willing to take me on as a sidekick or a sort of second shadow this summer? I'm not looking for money or anything like that, I just want to learn and experience. I have a passport and am willing to travel.
I know it's a bit late to be asking for summer experiences, but I had a few internships which have fallen through and now I'm up a creek.
I am a great listener and I'm low maintenance, so you don't have to worry about me getting in your way.
Please consider

If you're interested, please contact me at klemwithak@gmail.com
Have a Great Day, everybody!
-Kevin

I'm an emerging, non-union Director of Photography / Camera Operator with over 10 years of experience working on national TV commercials, music videos, and feature narrative films. My years of working in still photography gave me an extensive understanding of lighting and composition which I've segued into my cinematography. Although, I have no experience in non-fiction storytelling, I am extremely passionate about documenting the truth. As Federico Fellini once said,"My fantasy is to make something REAL". So, please feel free to contact me whether or not your next project calls for a Director of Photography and/or Camera Operator.

FLAHERTY NYC PRESENTS
Rebecca Richman Cohen's WAR DON DON

MONDAY, MAY 9, 7:30 PM, ANTHOLOGY FILM ARCHIVES
32 SECOND AVE, NEW YORK, NY, 10003
$9/GENERAL $7/STUDENTS & SENIORS $6/AFA MEMBERS

Director Rebecca Richman Cohen and producer Francisco Bello in person for discussion with Chris Santora, one of the Sesay trial prosecutors featured in the film!

Rebecca Richman Cohen's remarkable debut film WAR DON DON begins at the end of a decade-long civil war in Sierra Leone which has left a population devastated by mass murder, rape and savage disfigurement. Now, in the capital city of Freetown, United Nations soldiers guard a heavily fortified building known as the Special Court. Inside, a man named Issa Sesay awaits his trial. The prosecution say Sesay is a war criminal, guilty of heinous crimes against humanity. The defense says he is a reluctant fighter who protected civilians and was himself a victim of terrible poverty and violent coercion. Justice Benjamin Itoe says the Court means "to bring an end to impunity and to contribute to the peace and reconciliation process." WAR DON DON presents the trial of Issa Sesay in incredible detail and from myriad perspectives, offering a rare and penetrating view of international criminal justice.

"One of the most viscerally compelling documentaries of the year. It will leave you haunted."
Mary Anderson Casavant, Filmmaker Magazine

"Without eliding the grim human cost of the crimes and criminals involved, Rebecca Richman Cohen's unusually lucid documentary plays against type."
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

"Fascinating and complex... a remarkably sophisticated examination of the machinery of justice."
The Independent Weekly, Raleigh, NC

Seva Lives (Francisco Serrano) Monday, June 12 at Anthology Film Archives

In 1983, a Puerto Rican newspaper published Seva: History of the first U.S. invasion of Puerto Rico in May 1898. This fictional account of the U.S. invading Puerto Rico and massacring its people was a national sensation. SEVA LIVESdeconstructs the sociopolitical debate of the facts and myths surrounding the history of Puerto Rico and explores the issues that arise when fiction meddles with recollections of the past. Organized by Cinema Tropical, this screening celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 7th Robert J. Flaherty Seminar, held in Barranquitas, Puerto Rico.

I am working on 'Under the Radar' a documentary on the undocumented Irish living in New York. I could do with adivce/help on fundraising options.

'Under the Radar' is a documentary feature that chronicles the lives of the undocumented Irish who immigrated to New York looking for a better life or simply to avoid the unemployment lines back home. It is factual storytelling at its best. It is told from the prospective of three recently arrived Irish immigrants as they navigate their way through a myriad of hurdles in order to stay one step ahead of the immigration authorities. It captures the excitement and disappointment immigrants go through in the Big Apple as they pursue their dreams. It chronicles their fears and aspirations in the wake of 9/11.
Thanks for taking the time.

FLAHERTY NYC PRESENTS:
Francisco Serrano's SEVA LIVES

MONDAY, JUNE 13, 7:30 PM, ANTHOLOGY FILM ARCHIVES
32 SECOND AVE, NEW YORK, NY, 10003
$9/GENERAL $7/STUDENTS & SENIORS $6/AFA MEMBERS

Filmmaker in person for discussion!

Considered one of the best Puerto Rican films in recent years, SEVA LIVES offers a post-modern look at the history and impact of the U.S. invasion and occupation of the island.

When a fictional story reimagining the U.S. invasion was published in a widely-read newspaper in Puerto Rico, its readers believed it as fact. But like the infamous chaos-inducing Orson Welles radio dramatization of the War of the Worlds, the story was utter fiction simply taken as reality. The story contained letters from a historian who unearthed evidence that the United States did not enter Puerto Rico peacefully in June, as history dictates. Instead, the Americans invaded through a town named "Seva," massacred its people, and covered it up by changing the town's name to "Ceiba," its current name.

This story, as the newspaper tried to make clear, is fiction. Yet readers around the island believed it and a scandal ensued.

SEVA LIVES redefines Puerto Rican history in this update of the classic Puerto Rican short story "Seva." It mixes fictional elements with actual archival footage and real interviews with historians to discuss the significance and impact of the short story today. But, most significantly, SEVA LIVES deconstructs the sociopolitical debate of the facts and myths surrounding the history of Puerto Rico and explores the issues that arise when fiction meddles with recollections of the past.

Organized by Cinema Tropical, this screening celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 7th Robert J. Flaherty Seminar, held in Barranquitas, Puerto Rico.

===Bio===
SEVA LIVES is the first film of director, producer and editor Francisco Serano, whose previous credits as a digital animator include Maldeamores, Party Time and Diez en la Música. Serrano spends most of his time in front of his computer, where he made most of SEVA LIVES. He was born and raised in San Suan, Puerto Rico, and currently lives in Washington, D.C.

Hi All~

I'm looking for projects that need a stills/footage researcher, or assistant producer. I have years of experience working as a photo editor at various magazines (Newsweek, Vogue, Daily Beast) and organizations (UNICEF, Channel 13, Alarm Will Sound), and am trying to move into documentary film. I'm about to start a two month freelance gig at the New York Times. In addition to my licensing/research experience, I'm also an adept producer for still shoots – and am hoping to apply those skills to documentaries as well. I recently finished research and licensing for a film about Harper Lee, and have also worked on broadcast & live event productions. Last fall I traveled to Iceland, where I collaborated with a photojournalist to make a short documentary about the horse herders. I produced, photographed, and was the audio recordist for Herd In Iceland, which is currently in the editing stage.

Thanks so much for reading.
