Ok here we go with some long shots. Producer on low budget meetings here is...

- Looking for a flat/room to rent in Berlin on August 16th and eventually 17th.
- Looking for a room/flat in NYC to rent-exchange (LOndon flat exchange that is) from August 20th until Sept 12-19th aprox (all dates of the NYC needs are flexible)

And last, but not at all least, I need to know if any kind soul in NYC can allow me to watch 120 hours of rushes on avid format (I will watch any time of the day and accommodate as needed. Likely to watch bet 5 to 6 hours a day max). So, for free or very little money, I need to check these rushes on an AVID. I can operate the playback, etc myself and leave my ID etc etc. The project is a long running documentary about Budd Schulberg (in case any Budd's fans feel like helping with a big thanks in the credits).

The viewing facility can also be in Brooklyn and I can do anytime (including overnight). This is between August 20th and September 12th-19th.

thanks!

Hi Everyone,

Newsweek has declared the recession over, but for us documentary filmmakers who are relying on grants and corporate sponsors, it may take a awhile for the good news to trickle down. Here’s tip #6 (one my favorites) for hiring an editor in today’s economy. Click here to read all 7 tips: http://newdocediting.com/hiring-an-editor/

Tip #6 Sync Your Collaboration Styles.

Have you ever sat with an editor in your office, asked them to suggest a line of narration and then been met with a blank look? Before jumping to the conclusion that your editor is inept, consider that she might be a brilliant introvert.

How do you like to work with editors? Do you want to be in the edit room (on your premises) and sit with your editor several hours a day? Or do you prefer to hand off the digital files and leave your editor to work in their own space for a few days at a time? Knowing your collaboration style and hiring someone who synchronizes with it will save you the nightmare of having an unhappy editor resign mid-project.

Deborah Hoffmann, an Academy-nominated editor and director who now works exclusively as a story consultant, preferred to hole up with the footage for a spell without the director breathing down her back. She compares working successfully with a director to making a marriage work. “Some people read self-help books and others stumble along on their own,” says the modest Hoffmann. “I’m more of a stumbler. But bottom line is it’s all about communication, in both cases.”

To delve a bit deeper into the psychology of communication and work habits…

Hi all! I am a previously-New-York-based filmmaker who just moved to Paris, France. I am currently working on my first feature doc, as well as running a program for a film festival based here in Paris – and I'm really interested in meeting fellow filmmakers here and learning a bit about the French/European industry.

Please reach out to me via D-Word, or directly at sschutzki@gmail.com, if you know of anyone I might like to meet, have any ideas or suggestions for me or are interested in meeting with me yourself! Thanks in advance, looking forward to hearing from you.
