countries and war within oneself by delving into the fraught lives of
young people caught in the social/political conflict of one of the
most beautiful, and most deadly, places on earth – Kashmir.

SAGAS IS STILL HIRING DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKERS

Quit wasting your time working 3 day jobs that have nothing to do with
filmmaking. You can actually earn money shooting interviews with
people in your community by working with SAGAS.
We launch to the public with a nationwide marketing campaign on August
1st, but we are paying for demo videos nationwide right now to test
our systems, so sign up now!
www.sagas.com/interview

In case you still haven't heard of us, here's the story:

Dear Videographer,

We are proud to announce SAGAS, a new and exiting company that offers
customers the ability to record personal history video interviews with
individuals and small groups anywhere in America. You can think of
Sagas as the 1-800 Flowers for locally recorded video interviews and
interviewers.

We would like to offer you the opportunity to join the SAGAS Family
http://www.sagas.com/interview.htm . This is a way that you can
develop an additional income stream by working in your free time.

SAGAS was founded by David Hoffman, a veteran documentary Filmmaker
with over 40 years of experience ( www.thehoffmancollection.com). He
has made over 200 films and has won about every national and
international award including Emmy's and the Cannes Critics prize.

Shortly, we will begin promoting SAGAS nationally. SAGAS will build a
national brand, supported by a professional marketing campaign. This
is an independent contractor relationship. We consider our
videographers our partners.

When SAGAS receives an order, we will email the job description to
each registered Videographer that is willing to work in the area code
that the interview will take place. The first response accepting the
job will get the job. SAGAS will be careful not to over saturate the
videographer pool in any given location. This will ensure that
registered interviewers get their fair share of the work. So register
soon.

Shooting a Sagas video interview is simple. It is a one hour
interview; the entire call should not take more than 3 hours. No
editing is involved. When the Videographer accepts the job, they
receive the subject's contact information, and a one-page paper from
the customer that describes questions or topics that the customer
would like raised. The shoot style consists of an informal interview.
The videographer will sit in front of (and to the side of) their Mini
DV camera which is mounted on a stationary tripod. No lights are
required. The finished unedited miniDv tape will be sent directly to
Sagas who will pay within three days of receipt and review. Sagas
will pay $250 for each interview with an additional premium applied in
certain areas. Sagas has created a variety of training and self-help
tools, including demo interviews conducted by Hoffman. These should
help you to become a more skilled interviewer.

In two months, Sagas will go live and begin offering its services to
customers across the nation. We will begin promoting SAGAS nationally
so if you are interested in trying this out, please register now at
http://www.sagas.com/interview.htm

Best regards,


J.J. McCabe

READ THIS GREAT REVIEW FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES:
NEW YORK TIMES MOVIE REVIEW | 'FLYING: CONFESSIONS OF A FREE
WOMAN'
"Talking About Her Issues, Taking Them on the Road"
July 4, 2007

By JEANNETTE CATSOULIS

For most people, one therapist is enough; for Jennifer Fox, a
Manhattan filmmaker in her 40s,
exploring what she cheerfully calls her “messed-up self” required
a bit more input.
In “Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman,” Ms. Fox takes her issues
on the road,
soliciting advice from female friends in more than a dozen
countries.
In the process, she learns that she is not unique.

Part personal diary, part transglobal slumber party, “Flying” is a
six-hour exploration of modern
womanhood humming with talk of men. During kitchen-table chats and
late-night meltdowns,
women as diverse as an Egyptian journalist and an Indian civil
rights lawyer struggle to
control their finances and their fertility.

Turning narcissism inside out, Ms. Fox uses her own romantic
crisis — a rocky impasse
between a married South African lover and a sweet Swiss boyfriend
— to connect,
sometimes hilariously, with women whose choices are far less
luxurious. Her humility
is the film’s strength; employing a technique she calls “passing
the camera,”
the filmmaker shares point of view to create a living
conversation.

By turns playful, sexy, tragic and contemplative, “Flying” is an
addictive soap
about sexuality and sisterhood. And if that makes the average
man’s eyeballs roll,
all the more reason for his honey to buy him a ticket.
