Hey people in the San Francisco Bay Area:

Our new feature doc, SEEDS (which just premiered as the Opening Night Film at SILVERDOCS to 4 sold out theaters), is coming to the Bay Area.

SEEDS will be screening 4 times as part of the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival:

"SEEDS introduces us to ten courageous teenagers trying to accomplish what most adults can never bring themselves to do: sit down in peace to face their enemy....Like a grown-up, harder-edged heir to the documentary Promises, SEEDS shows that coexistence, even temporary, is tough work, and often elusive" SFJFF, 2004

In order to make peace with your enemy, you have to go to war with yourself.

Sunday, 25 July, 4.15pm, Castro Theater, SF
Sunday, 1 August, 1pm, Century 16 Cinemas, Mountainview
Tuesday, 3 August, 6pm, Wheeler Auditorium, Berkeley
Saturday, 7 August, 1.30pm, San Rafael Film Center, San Rafael

More information on the venues and ticketing and the other great films at < http://www.sfjff.org>

If you're thinking of coming and are unsure which date to come, please come to the first screening at the Castro -- that's a 1100 seat theater, which we'd like to fill!

We'll be doing an interesting panel before that screening with filmmakers and subjects from another film, and two of our boys will be here from the Middle East, so come check us out.

Please spread the word to your local friends and family, and if anyone is interested in passing on an email flyer to their email list, please let me know. That would be great :-)

SEEDS introduces us to ten courageous teenagers from Israel, Palestine, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and American living together for three weeks at a camp in Maine, and trying to accomplish what most adults can never bring themselves to do: sit down in peace to face their enemy. Like a grown-up, harder-edged heir to the documentary Promises, Seeds shows that coexistence, even temporary, is tough work. SEEDS intimately documents this difficult journey, where there are no superficial resolutions.

NYC (August 8), seeking absolutely great editor to wrap up a feature doc...

I'm approaching the home stretch of editing on a feature documentary
about Gypsy musicians around the world. The unsophisticated but efficient
way to describe it is that it's a kind of, 'Romani Vista Social Club'. It's got
stunning footage (Al Maysles.. concert film and scenes from Spain, Macedonia,
Romania & India). Great people. Good stories. Set for worldwide theatrical
with a prestigious sales agent. Presold to PBS. etc...

It also has an overwhelmed director. Me. Hence the suggestion of working
with an editor to complete the film. Interviewing people now to find
the perfect fit... Please call/e-mail ASAP.

I'm in the middle of preparing a documentary and I've pretty much
completed everything letter of intention to film treatment with
master scenes as well as a detaileld shooting script. It's gonna
involve part narrative (on 35mm) and the bigger chunk, the actual
documentary, (on HD).

I'm up for a grant but I know that a budget breakdown would
strengthen my proposal.

My question is can anyone assist me in a list of all elements that
you might think I should include in my breadown as small as they may
seem- minimum crew requirements, equipment, other logistics. My only
exprience is shootign independent shorts on 16mm.

This is to all, especially producers, who can relate to the plight of
an aspiring filmmaker and don't mind sharing breakdown
templates/lists.

The Educational Video Center
Media Literacy Violence Prevention Project Internships
Working with NYC High School Students

The Educational Video Center and Satellite Academy High School are
offering internships and independent study classes working with high
school students in the following activities in the Fall 2004 and
possibly the Spring 2005 semesters: video and web page production;
facilitating internet student discussions between school sites;
facilitating classroom discussions and activities related to media
analysis, violence in the media, violence in our society, and
alternatives to violence; facilitating classroom discussions and
responding to the viewing of student media productions.

The Educational Video Center and Satellite Academy High School
Project seek undergraduate and graduate students to do internships
and independent study courses working in NYC high school classes
facilitating high school students with video projects, web page
production, media analysis, critical viewing of each other’s tapes
and internet bulletin board discussions during the Fall 2004 semester
and possibly the Spring 2005 semester. The project, called the Media
Literacy Violence Prevention Project, explores themes related to
violence, alternatives to violence, media critique, and violence in
the media, and is a collaboration between Satellite Academy High
School, the Educational Video Center and New York University’s Media
Ecology Program of the Department of Culture and Communication.

High school students at the four different sites of Satellite Academy
High School (one site in the Bronx, one site in Queens, and two sites
in Manhattan) will explore the role of violence in their own lives
and communities as well as alternatives to violence; will learn
to “read” or critically analyze mainstream media that bombards them
with images and messages twenty-four hours a day; and will critique
the role of violence in the media (i.e. television, movies, music,
video, computer games, video games, etc). Additionally, students
will produce media that promote alternative messages. They will also
communicate with students from other Satellite sites about their
learning and their projects via “blackboard,” an electronic bulletin
board for internet conversations linked to the project’s website.

This is a wonderful opportunity for undergraduate and graduate
students interested in any or all of the following: working with high
school students, teaching media production, media analysis, violence
in the media, facilitating activities and discussions about community
violence and alternatives to violence.

Experience in video and web page production preferred but not
necessary.

DIGITAL CINEMATOGRAPHY/DOCUMENTARY CAMERAWORK course offered at the
New School this fall

4 session(s). Four Fridays, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM, October 1-22, 2004,
New York City.

With small digital cameras now accessible to almost everyone, what
skills does the videomaker need to capture engaging, artful, and
technically sound documentary footage? This intensive workshop
teaches the basics of digital cinematography for the documentary,
with emphasis on how each frame must tell the story. Taught by D-word
member, documentary director and DP Cynthia Wade
(www.cynthiawade.com), students learn "hands-on" how to improve
dramatically their video images. Topics include learning to see
cinematically, using natural and added light, when and why to stay
away from automatic settings, special effects with filters/gels and
other fun tricks of the trade, and simple guidelines to follow so
that you will get all the shots you need for editing.

Special attention will be given to the challenge of simultaneously
shooting and directing the documentary, particularly as a one-person
or two-person crew. Students must have their own camcorders, which
they must bring to class.

Though just released on DVD by KINO, the 1972 feature-length cinema
verite documentary ASYLUM on the late R.D.LAING's therapeutic
community in London can be seen as it should be - with audience and
big screen - at ANTHOLOGY FILM ARCHIVES (.com) in NYC on SATURDAY
night SEPTEMBER 18 at 8:30 PM (2nd Street at 2nd Avenue, 505-5181).
New member Dick Adams shot and edited this for the late Peter
Robinson 30 years ago and thinks you may be moved by its rendering of
a heroic and beautiful attempt to create an alternative to the mental
hospitals of the day - with ramifications, some say, for the
craziness of our world today. Q&A followed by scenes from Laing's
famous 1972 U.S. college tour. Questions? richard.w.adams@rcn.com

"Joyce to the World" is screening at NY is Book Country, the huge, free festival that
celebrates reading, readers, and occasionally movies about books like mine.

Sunday, October 3
Cantor Film Center, NYU, Theater 1
36 E. 8th Street at Greene

Absolutely free, but you need to pick up tickets at Borders in NY or at the festival booth.

The film's an hour plus Q&A afterward. I'm hoping for a surprise guest.

"Joyce to the World" celebrates the passionate readers of James Joyce's Ulysses, the
greatest novel of the 20th century that no one's actually read, with Bloomsday celebrations
from Kansas City to Kobe College. It features Brian Dennehy, Frank McCourt, Fionnula
Flanagan, Malachy McCourt, and Joyceans of all stripes. Irreverent, fast-paced, seriously
funny. And made on a shoestring.

For more info, e-mail me or check out http://www.joycetotheworld.com

The full NY is Book Country program is on their website at <http://

I am currently in pre-production for a documentary I will be shooting in Minneapolis in
December that will be featuring two hip hop musicians affiliated with Rhymesayers
Entertainment. I would like to produce a DVD of the documentary once it is finished so I
am trying to find some sort of profit sharing contract that I can sign with the musicians I
am working with to specify who gets what if the doc. ever makes any money. I have
searched through "The Complete Film Production Handbook" as well as a book of
contracts for independent filmmakers and haven't found what I am looking for. I would
draw up the contract myself but I am afraid I might miss something that will bite me later.
Does any one know where I might find a mock up of a profit sharing contract that I can
use?

if so my e-mail is austynsteelman@hotmail.com.

Hello everyone in Southern California,

SmartSound Software and the International Documentary Association are hosting a Soundtrack Creation Workshop and Screening on Dec. 7 at Culver Studios in Culver City. I would like to encourage anyone interested in learning how to maximize their scoring budget while getting the highest-quality result possible to attend this event.

At this unique soundtrack creation workshop, independent and documentary filmmakers will learn the latest tips and tricks to create professional-quality soundtracks for projects of any budget. Filmmaker Rick McKay will share the secrets he used to score his award-winning documentary *Broadway: The Golden Age,* including how he used SmartSound technology and music to score almost a third of his movie for about $500. A screening of the movie and an open Q&A session with McKay will follow the workshop.

Creating a professional-quality soundtrack is a growing concern for independent and documentary filmmakers and editors. Frequent time and budget constraints make it very difficult to score projects to a level that meets their standards. This event will show filmmakers new ways to effectively score their scenes.

Culver Studios is located at 9336 W. Washington Blvd. in Culver City. Tickets are $10, and must be purchased in advance. They can be purchased by calling (818) 920-9122 or by visiting http://www.smartsound.com/workshop.

I hope to see as many of you as possible at the show!

Anyone know a co-editor for a documentary (Talk To Me Project) that
I am working on in NYC? It is a true story about strangers who meet
at Bryant Park around a sign that says "Talk To Me". The documentary
is about more than talking when a few of the strangers are moved by
the conversation that they act on their impulse to act on behalf of
one person's struggle... and the general dilemma we all face when we
see suffering and whether or not we can make a difference? going
into too much detail, the story focuses on the decisions and
relationships that ensue. It has been featured in the New York
Daily News and on the Oprah Show, CNN, New York Times, and different
variations of the story in so much media around the world.

I have a lot of great material to edit. I happen to know how to
edit on the Avid, so I am doing it a lot myself. But I need a co-
editor. It is a great project. I can tell more to anyone wo thinks
they can help. My email is degamuna@yahoo.com
My deadline is December 13th to get it into Hot Docs. Or if someone
wants to carry it on, as I have to go Toronto on Dec 16th, Jan 14th.
So if you think you have some time, or someone you know does, please
get in touch with me.
Sincerely,
Dega Omar
