Tina,

Try my friend Basheer barakat76@gmail.com. I don't know if he's a producer himself, but he was a good coordinator for me at the Dubai Film Festival, very helpful. I think he'd be able to point you in the right direction.

Lamu is fantastic... well, at least the beach though. Was there for Christmas and they have let the street (their version of 'streets') get filled with donkey crap, which makes sight seeing hard as you have to walk with your eyes fixed to the ground...a pity, there is so much to see!

I am interested in advice on how to find right person (film maker) and fund a small documentary style effort and what might be interesting goals / benefits that makes it a win/win for company and film producer. Budget would likely be shoestring, but could be an interesting experience.

Example situation:
Say you have a big event every year like MacWorld (AppleWorld) or an auto show (but put on by only one company, not a tradeshow)... you show off your latest products, you launch 2 or 3 new things, and you show a vision of where your company is going (concept cars, or other physical immersive manifestations). You have to entice the media and your top customers to attend and you want to broadcast and create discussion around all 3 parts of this event experience...

I am exploring how a highly experiential event with similar attributes could leverage film/documentary storytelling in interesting, meaningful ways – meaningful to the company, its stakeholders, and the film maker...

Some nice to have goals for company might be:
+ capture people's reactions around new product innovation at large/major event in Eastern Europe (new product concepts around several themes, dramatic event experience in major city, new products being launched, other interesting products being demonstrated/show for sales in both business to business and business to consumer arena)
+ capture value design is adding to business
+ possible interviews with CEO/CMOs from top companies
+ many other areas that could be mutually interesting if discussed... but trying to understand if this might be interesting to a qualified independent film maker or high potential starting out

There could be two cuts... both would likely be very people-focused. But, one could capture essence of business value and the other could be all around creative/design side of things.

Recently set up this portal to sell iPOD / portable-ready MP4s of my own titles BOOKWARS, SUSAN HERO, and others, and am now offering the platform to other filmmakers who may want to sell MP4 versions (non- DRM) of their work.

No guarantees re: revenue, but probably worth a try, especially for older releases that aren't well repped in the digital space.

FREE Screening: Cynthia Wade's FREEHELD, The New School, April 11

The New School presents
The Sixth Annual Dorothy H. Hirshon Film Festival – Vision and Risk: The Films of Cynthia Wade
Date: April 11, 2008
7:00 p.m., with panel discussion and reception to follow
Tishman Auditorium
66 W. 12th Street, New York City
Free and Open to the Public

Screening and Discussion: FREEHELD, winner of the 2008 Academy Award for Documentary Short Subject
FREEHELD chronicles Detective Lieutenant Laurel Hester’s struggle to transfer her pension to her domestic partner, Stacie Andree. With less than six months to live, Laurel refuses to back down when the elected officials of Ocean County, New Jersey, deny her request to leave her pension to her partner, an option granted only to heterosexual married couples. FREEHELD captures the media frenzy and passionate advocacy campaign spurred by Laurel’s plight; it also tells the quieter, personal story of the deep love between Laurel and Stacie as they face the reality of losing each other, creating a powerful, nuanced study of a grassroots fight for justice.

YIKES! MIAMI-AREA DP / CAMERA OP NEEDED IN A HURRY!

Just received an opportunity for a talking-head intvw with a movie star that's very pertinent to my doc. It's in Miami Beach, this week, probably during business hours. Only about one hour of actual intvw, but then set-up and breakdown on top of the one hour.

If anyone fits this bill, is a DP with professional credits and his/her own camera (Sony DVCam preferred) and light kit, drop me a line at:

cultmovies [at] hotmail [dot] com

This is for an in-production feature-length doc that already has some interest from cable and has other movie-star intvws in the can.

The Utopia Film Festival, a community festival for which I have been serving as Program Director, is now accepting submissions. Would love to see any D-Worder submissions. No premiere requirements and we do accept films made within the past two years. Here's our blurb...

The Utopia Film Festival showcases short and feature-length works which entertain and enlighten audiences of all ages. Fiction, Documentaries, Animations, Music Videos, and Experimental Films are all welcome. This year's festival will take place from October 24-26, 2008 in Greenbelt, Maryland.

The Utopia Film Festival is an annual cinematic event, now in its fourth year. It reflects the utopian ideals of Greenbelt, Maryland – one of America's first planned communities. Located between the urban centers of Washington DC and Baltimore, Maryland, Greenbelt was designed and built under the Roosevelt Administration's New Deal Federal Works Program in the 1930s. It remains a vibrant community and its historic city center (where many of the festival events take place) has been designated a national historic district.

While we encourage all submissions, these are special strands which we have planned for 2008:

UTOPIAN VISIONS: Films which address themes of community building, promoting diversity, bettering social and economic conditions, or preserving the environment.

KID VIDS: Family-friendly animated or live-action works. Films produced by children and teenagers are especially encouraged.

HALLOWEEN SCREEN: Since our festival coincides with the week of Halloween, we welcome submissions of serious or spoofy horror films appropriate for the season.

Submit now to take advantage of the early bird discount rate on submission fees.

Early-Bird Deadline: April 25, 2008
Regular Deadline: June 13, 2008
Late Deadline: July 1, 2008
