Vivian Norris de Montaigu, a producer based in Paris, has contacted me to help her find a good videographer in the Washington / Baltimore area to shoot one or two interviews on October 22nd or 23rd. It's in conjunction with a documentary about Pres. Obama's mother. My usual people are all booked; can anyone give me some leads? I don't know Dr. Norris de Montaigu personally, but she comes highly recommended by a friend in the area of microfinance, a subject that I've dealt with a lot. She's also developing a feature film based on the life and work of Muhammad Yunus of Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2006 and someone I've also worked with a great deal. She wants to shoot in high def, and would rely on the camera person to arrange for equipment and quite possibly also a sound recordist. Here's a link with info about Norris de Montaigu:

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for any recommendations that people might have for an experienced editor. Of course, people are welcome to apply to the email below but it would be great if anyone had advice and suggestions. (This is a paid position by the way). Here's the spec;

We are looking for a talented editor for a feature length foreign documentary with a strong narrative. You need to have solid experience in character development and story structure.

Editing will begin in either December or January and ideally, you will be able to travel abroad to edit, but this is not a deal breaker (flight and accommodation will be covered)

You should be skilled in editing in Final Cut, have a quality reel with broadcast credits and references that can be checked.

We also want to produce a trailer.

For full details contact us at editor@chivitmai.com

DocuClub in October!

Our October DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, October 28, 7 p.m., at the 92YTribeca, located at 200 Hudson Street (at Canal). You can take the E, 1, or 6 trains to Canal.

We will screen a rough cut of BAD BLOOD by Marilyn Ness. Through the eyes of survivors and family members, BAD BLOOD chronicles how a “miracle” treatment for hemophilia became an agent of death for 10,000 Americans. Faced with evidence that pharmaceutical companies and government regulators knew the product was contaminated, they launch a powerful and inspiring fight to right the system that failed them and to make it safer for all.

Director/Producer, Marilyn Ness, is a two-time Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker with 14 years of experience. She founded Necessary Films in 2005, directing short films for non-profits and developing documentaries including BAD BLOOD and GENOME. Prior to that, Ness spent four years as a producer for Director Ric Burns, collaborating on four award-winning PBS films: ANSEL ADAMS; THE CENTER OF THE WORLD; ANDY WARHOL; and EUGENE O’NEIL. Ness’ other credits include films for TLC, HBO, Court TV, and National Geographic, as well as films for the PBS series American Experience and the theatrical feature THE LIFE AND TIMES OF HANK GREENBERG.

Other credits for BAD BLOOD include Editor Marian Sears Hunter, Director of Photography David Ford, Writers Sheila Curran Bernard and Marilyn Ness, and Coordinating Producers Kristen Vaurio and Christina King.

Our moderator will be Robert Bahar. Bahar is the Emmy-award winning producer/writer of the documentary MADE IN L.A. Funded by ITVS, POV and the Sundance Documentary Fund, MADE IN L.A. premiered on PBS' POV series in 2007 and has screened extensively at festivals around the world. The film, which has received an Emmy Award, the Sidney Hillman Prize and a Henry Hampton Award from the Council on Foundations, is currently the focus of a multi-year DIY outreach and distribution initiative. Bahar previously produced and directed the award-winning documentary LAID TO WASTE, and has line-produced and production managed independent films including ITVS’s DIARY OF A CITY PRIEST, which premiered at Sundance, and PITTSBURGH, which premiered at Tribeca. In addition to his work as a filmmaker, he is the director/co-founder of Doculink, a grassroots and online community of over 2,500 documentary-makers. He has served on the Board of the International Documentary Association and holds an M.F.A. from The Peter Stark Program at USC.

Admission is free for current DocuClub members and $8 for non-members.

Please purchase your tickets online in advance here:

Hello All,
I'm producing a one day shoot in Boston this Thursday for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation(www.rwjf.org) documenting a teen led event to promote healthy relationships and prevent dating violence among young people. Could anyone recommend a documentary style photojournalist who could shoot stills of the event? We're looking for local talent in Boston, someone who is unobtrusive, who can tell a story through moments, and of course high production value. Any suggestions?

Hi Sara-
I lived and worked in Boston for 7 years and can recommend you contact Natasha Moustache: (www.natashamoustache.com, nlmphoto@gmail.com, 617-869-4742)
Full disclosure: she's a friend, but she's very talented and versatile. I think she's been doing a lot of club-type photography lately to pay the bills, but even if her style is not what you are looking for, she would be a good resource for other photo people in the area. I'll try to think of who else is working there...

Good Luck!

DocuClub in November!

Once again, we are thrilled to partner with Tribeca All Access for our November DocuClub. The screening will take place on Wednesday, November 18, 7 p.m., at the Tribeca Cinemas, located at 54 Varick Street (corner of Laight, on block below Canal). You can take the 1, A, C, E, trains to Canal Street.

We will screen a rough cut of BEIJING TAXI by Miao Wang. The feature-length documentary vividly portrays the ancient capital of China going through a profound transformational arch. Through a humanistic lens, the intimate lives of three taxi drivers thread through the morphing city of Beijing confronted with modern issues and changing values. Though each faced with their own struggles with modernity, the three characters radiate a warm sense of humanity. With stunning imagery of Beijing combined with a contemporary score rich in atmosphere, the audience experiences a visceral sense of the common citizens’ persistent attempts to grasp the elusive. Its society is living through enormous contradictions adjusting to a new capitalist system from a Communist-ruled and educated society. BEIJING TAXI uses the Olympic games as the backdrop for the film. The Olympics is the biggest metaphor and China’s coming-out party to mark this era of China in transition. Candid and perceptive in its filming approach and highly cinematic and moody in style, BEIJING TAXI takes us on a lyrical journey into fragments of a society riding the bumpy roads to modernization. Though the destination is unknown, they continue to forge ahead.

Born and raised in Beijing, Director Miao Wang immigrated to the United States in 1990. Her first documentary, YELLOW OX MOUNTAIN, has screened at over twenty festivals, received a Best Short Film Award and a broadcast on WNET Thirteen. Wang has worked as an assistant at Maysles Films, and has edited documentaries for PBS and programs for National Geographic. For BEIJING TAXI, Wang has received grants from the Sundance Documentary Fund, the Jerome Foundation, and the New York State Council for the Arts. She has participated in the IFP Filmmaker’s Lab, Tribeca All Access, and Independent Film Week and currently splits her time between New York and Beijing. BEIJING TAXI is her first feature-length documentary.

Producer Ivana Stolkiner was born in Argentina, and moved to New York in 1998. After graduating with honors from Hunter College’s film program in 2004, Stolkiner assisted the producers of Kartemquin Films in several award-winning documentaries--MAPPING STEM CELL RESEARCH: TERRA INCOGNITA, MILKING THE RHINO and IN THE FAMILY, among others. She has assisted Engel Entertainment in films for the Discovery Channel and National Geographic, and has also served as an associate producer at Pacific Street for the documentaries IN DEBT WE TRUST and BEYOND WISE GUYS.

Editor Sikay Tang received her film training with Spike Lee’s production of JUNGLE FEVER (1991) and MALCOM X (1992). A year later, during the making of her first video, Tang began her interest in film editing. Her editing credits include the documentaries CHISHOLM 72: UNBOUGHT AND UNBOSSED (2004) by Shola Lunch, and THE GOOD SOLDIER (2009) by Michael Uys and and Lexy Lovell. Tang works as a film and video editor and lives in New York City.

Our moderator will be Adella Ladjevardi, Grants Manager at Cinereach, a not-for-profit organization that facilitates the creation of films that “challenge, excite, innovate, offer new perspectives and inspire action.” Most recently, she was the Associate Producer for 2009’S MY NEIGHBOR, MY KILLER, a documentary feature by Emmy-award winner Anne Aghion. Ladjevardi was also Associate Producer for the four-hour cut of acclaimed filmmaker Jennifer Fox’s 2008 documentary mini-series FLYING: CONFESSIONS OF A FREE WOMAN, broadcast on the BBC and SBS; and served as the Distribution and Outreach Manager for the educational and non-theatrical markets for FLYING’s six-hour version. Prior to working with Fox, Adella worked for three years in marketing and publicity at documentary film distributor Icarus Films. She was also Associate Producer of Tanaz Eshaghian’s 2002 short doc I CALL MYSELF PERSIAN: IRANIANS IN AMERICA, broadcast on PBS and screened at MoMA’s Documentary Fortnight. Ladjevardi received a BFA in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design.

Admission is free for current DocuClub members and $6 for non-members.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to: docuclub@artsengine.net.

Mendocino Film Festival's Call for Entries
Final Deadline Dec. 1, 2009
www.MendocinoFilmFestival.org

Set in the historic village of Mendocino on the spectacular Northern California coast, the Mendocino Film Festival (June 4-6, 2010) has been praised by attending filmmakers as “a filmmaker’s film festival,” an intimate gathering place for independent artists hailing from across the country and around the globe.

The Mendocino Film Festival offers attending filmmakers the warmest hospitality for three nights in the private homes, lodges, and inns of Mendocino and neighboring communities. With screenings and discussions by day, filmmakers and audience members gather in the evenings for informal celebrations and special events. Gatherings include an opening reception and a private filmmakers’ party at an historic Victorian home overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The atmosphere is profoundly relaxed, intimate and festive.

"The Mendocino Film Festival is the near perfect film festival. It is about great films, talented filmmakers and wonderful film lovers, all set in a breathtakingly beautiful place," said filmmaker Adrian Belic.

The festival has been proud to host beloved documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles, actor Carl Lumbly, actor and activist Danny Glover, Sydney Pollack, documentary theoretician Bill Nichols, Academy Award nominees Tia Lessin and Carl Deal, and many others.

The Mendocino Film Festival focuses on creative kinship and great films. Filmmakers come to Mendocino to turn off their cell phones, hike our beautiful coastline and share their work with passionate colleagues and attendees. Mendocino is known for its artistic and politically active population—our audiences are informed, engaged and supportive.

Located on the Northern California coast a scenic three-hour drive from San Francisco, Mendocino is a charming and historic village with everything in walking distance. The town’s unforgettable setting has served as the backdrop for over sixty films, including East of Eden, Same Time Next Year, Summer of ‘42, The Russians Are Coming, The Majestic, and Murder She Wrote.

The Mendocino Film Festival invites filmmakers to submit entries by Dec. 1, 2009, to one of these special categories:

• Films on the Arts – Films on the lives, work and creative process of artists in the visual, literary, applied and performing arts.
• Films for our Future – Environmental, social justice, and spiritually themed films that offer models, solutions, and inspiration for our future.
• Documentary Features – Strong, well-crafted stories that inform, infuriate, inspire and change how we see the world.

DocuClub in December!

Our December DocuClub screening will be on Wednesday, December 2, at 7 p.m., at Goldcrest Post (799 Washington Street, between Horatio and Gansevoort), in New York City’s West Village.

We will screen a rough cut of Jill Morley’s FIGHTING IT. While taking a personal journey into the boxing ring, FIGHTING IT explores the complexities of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, racism, and the importance of pursuing your dreams no matter what they are, what issues surround them, or gender you happen to be. It also emphasizes the value of being present and using the past to fuel your journey forward. FIGHTING IT views overcoming adversity, coping with trauma and healing from the past through the lens of boxing. The fact that such healing can take place in what many consider a violent sport is what makes these boxers’ journeys so unique and compelling.

Director Jill Morley’s STRIPPED ran on the Sundance Channel and won Best Documentary at the Women’s International Film Festival in Sydney. Her play, TRUE CONFESSIONS OF A GO-GO GIRL, was recently made into a Lifetime Movie of the Week and was published in Women Playwrights: The Best Plays of 1998. Heading the Paul Taylor Dance Company Video Archive project, Morley shot, edited, and directed the company’s repertoire for their video archive. She also worked with Michael Moore as a producer and correspondent for THE AWFUL TRUTH. In addition, Morley’s Shooting Ninjas Productions specializes in corporate videos, events and performances. Some clients include Gerber, Activision, TIME Magazine, and Kiehl’s.

Our moderator will be Danielle DiGiacomo, Community Manager at IFP, the nation's oldest and largest membership organization, and premiere advocate, for independent filmmakers. Previous to that, she was Head of Documentary Acquisitions for IndiePix Films, building up the documentary feature catalogue and spearheading the successful multi-platform releases of films such as Jeremiah Zagar's IN A DREAM, Kristi Jacobson's TOOTS, and Jason Hutt's ORTHODOX STANCE. She also developed and produced the first and second annual Cinema Eye Honors for Nonfiction Film. DiGiacomo has programmed in conjunction with the Woodstock Film Festival, Brooklyn Independent Cinema Series, and Rooftop Films, and has presented on panels about film distribution and production at the Newport International Film Festival, Hunter College, Big Sky Documentary Festival, Sheffield Doc/Fest, and Krakow Film Festival, among others. In addition, she has taught "Contemporary Documentary" and "Documentary Distribution and Marketing" at New York University.

This is DocuClub’s last screening in 2009, so come out to support your filmmaker peers!

Admission is free for current DocuClub members and $6 for non-members.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to: docuclub@artsengine.net.

Membership is an annual $50 and it includes free admission to all DocuClub events. It takes five minutes to join online:

I'm looking for a location sound recordist in the Ft Lauderdale, Florida area in the middle of December for 4 days.
The film I'm working on, and have been for the last several years, is a self-funded dance documentary, and I don't have the budget to pay top industry rates.

I'm paying but I'm looking for someone willing to work with me on the rate.
I'm also looking for someone familiar with documentary location sound recording.
I have all the audio gear, but I assume most sound people prefer to use their own.

Let me know if you want more details, or if you can pass on the name of any sound recordist, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hello fellow D-Worders,

FCP Editor available!

I just got back from a 2-month stint in New Orleans editing a fellow D-Worder's documentary, and really enjoyed that experience. I'm looking for my next gig, and wanted to introduce myself to those of you who are looking for an editor.

I am a Final Cut Pro editor with several years of experience, and a number of post-production feature documentary and television credits. Projects I have worked on include an Academy Award short-list nominee, and the winner of the 2008 IDA Audience Award.

I have supervised post-production for broadcast television as well as for theatrical film-outs, and am proficient in After Effects, Photoshop, and all aspects of Final Cut Studio.

I have an excellent grasp of story structure, a good eye for comedy as well as drama, and the ability to pull out the poignant moments that make audiences love (or hate!) the characters.

You can find my reel and resume online at my website; please contact me directly (see my member profile page) for URL and login info.

Thanks, and good luck with all your projects!
- Miranda

IN SEARCH OF MEMORY at IFC CENTER

from 8:00pm11:00pm
IFC Center
323 Sixth Avenue
New York City, New York 10014

"Memory is everything. Without it we are nothing," says neuroscientist Eric Kandel, winner of the Nobel Prize for his groundbreaking research on the physiology of the brain's storage of memories. As he explains, memory is the glue that binds our mental life together and provides a sense of continuity in our lives.

IN SEARCH OF MEMORY is a compelling blend of autobiography and history that recounts the life of one of the most important neuroscientists of the 20th century and illuminates scientific developments in our understanding of the brain's role in recording and preserving memory. In addition to archival footage and dramatic re-creations of Kandel's childhood experiences in Nazi-occupied Vienna and his formative years as an emigrant in New York, the film features discussions with Kandel, friends and family, as well as his public lectures in Vienna and New York, which explore both his professional and personal life, especially his emotional ties to Judaism.

Both through its personal journey into the memory of this amazingly spry and witty 79-year old, especially his traumatic experiences during the Holocaust, and a visit to his Columbia University laboratory, where Kandel and his colleagues demonstrate their experimental research, IN SEARCH OF MEMORY examines how the brain stores memories, the difference between short-term and long-term memory, Alzheimer's and age-related memory loss, and structural modifications to the brain that enhance memory.

In revisiting the people, places and objects of Kandel's lifetime experiences, IN SEARCH OF MEMORY reveals how everything we undergo changes the brain, even our genetic make-up, and can determine the focus of a life's work.

Hello, I'm writing to let you all know that the call for entries for this year's Garrett Scott Documentary Development Grant is online. More info below:

http://www.fullframefest.org/garrett2010.php
Garrett Scott Documentary Development Grant

What: This grant funds first time documentary makers for travel and accommodations at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, April 8-11, 2010. For four days, grant recipients will be given access to films, participate in master classes and be mentored by experienced filmmakers. TWO filmmakers will be chosen for the grant in its third year.

Deadline: Applications must be RECEIVED BY Friday, February 5, 2010. Applicants will be notified by email in early March.

About the Grant: Garrett Scott made a distinctive mark in documentary during his short career. Without any formal training in film, he directed Cul De Sac: A Suburban War Story, examining the case of a methamphetamine addict who stole a tank from an armory and went on a rampage through the San Diego suburbs. The film prompted Filmmaker Magazine to cite Scott as one of 25 New Faces of Independent Film. He went on to make Occupation: Dreamland, co-directed with Ian Olds, about U.S. soldiers in Falluja, Iraq. It won prizes at Full Frame and the Independent Spirit Awards. Both films were broadcast by the Sundance Channel. In 2006, Scott died of a heart attack at age 37.

Scott's work examined how the forces of state power and economics impact individuals. Stylistically, his films broke convention, giving audiences new perspectives on familiar milieus like suburbia or war torn Iraq. He was a beloved member of film communities in San Francisco and New York City and several points in between.

His friends, family and colleagues established this development grant to help other emerging filmmakers reach their potential. The grants selection committee looks especially for filmmakers who somehow fulfill Scott's example, by bringing a unique vision to the content and style of contemporary documentary making.

Previous grant recipients include Elinyisia Mosha and Cameron Yates in 2009, Rebecca Richman Cohen, Nathan Fisher and Mai Iskander in 2008 and Robin Hessman and Lee Lynch in 2007.

Criteria: Applicants must be a U.S. citizen or green card holder and live in the continental United States; any age 18 or older. By "first time filmmaker," we mean someone who is in the early stage of their documentary career and has not yet received significant recognition (such as major festival play or broadcast). All applicants should anticipate finishing their first project by March 2011. You still qualify as a "first time filmmaker" if you've made shorts or student projects, worked professionally as a crew member on other people's films, or if you've recently completed a documentary that hasn't been released yet. The grant is open to students and non-students alike.

How: Applicants should send a 2 page letter addressing these areas:

1) Project summary: Describe the documentary you're working on. It doesn't matter whether the film is a short or a feature, though the judging tends to favor more ambitious projects. Describe the characters, structure, visual approach and what stage you're at.

2) Director's statement: Describe how you came to filmmaking and how you've trained as a filmmaker. It doesn't matter whether you went to film school or are self-taught. Describe what you want audiences to take from your film.

Work sample: Applicants must send a 5-10 minute DVD sample of a work-in-progress or a past work. You may send a longer work sample, but judges may only review the opening minutes.

Submit TWO COPIES of both the letter and DVD along with your...

I am working on a budget right now for the film that we wa...nt to shoot this summer, STILL DREAMING, and it’s a bit like dreaming up your treatment when you don’t know how your film is going to play out.

DocuClub in January!

Our January DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, January 27, 7 p.m., at the 92YTribeca, located at 200 Hudson Street (at Canal). You can take the E, 1, or 6 trains to Canal.

We will screen a rough cut of UP HEARTBREAK HILL by Erica Scharf. The documentary chronicles the lives of Thomas, Tamara and Gabby – three Native American teenagers in Navajo, New Mexico –as they navigate their senior year at a reservation high school. As graduation nears, they must decide whether to stay in their community– a place inextricably woven into the fiber of their being – or leave in pursuit of opportunities elsewhere. Largely isolated from mainstream America, they hesitate to separate from their families and traditions, rooted to home in equal parts by love, obligation and fear. Tribal elders urge members of the younger generation to leave, acquire an education or learn a trade, and return home with the skills to help their people. But, with an unemployment rate near 58% and a per capita income under $4,600, Navajo has few prospects. Thomas, Tamara and Gabby each bear amazing strength and promise, but all are products of their environment, and it is the same community that has set before them so many challenges that now asks them to become the leaders that will reshape the Navajo Nation. Their battles to shape their identities as both Native American and modern American lie at the heart of the film.

Director Erica Scharf has spent much of her career in documentary film and television. Most recently, she worked as an editor on Investigation Discovery’s documentary television series, THE SHIFT. She has shot, produced and edited numerous episodes of THE FIRST 48 (A&E). She directed and edited MARNEE: A GARAGE SALE RETROSPECTIVE, which was the First Place Winner at Movie Making Madness 2005, and edited CIY (Best Short Film, 2007 Aspen Shortsfest). Other credits include SWAT (A&E), MIAMI INK (TLC), and LAST SEEN ALIVE (Discovery). In 2005, Scharf was the Assistant Editor on GOD GREW TIRED OF US (Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award, 2006 Sundance Film Festival). Scharf is a graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts and has a B.F.A. in Film and Television.

Producer Christina D. King’s body of work spans news, documentary, and film. After producing broadcast news in her home state of Oklahoma, King went on to associate produce the documentaries ELECTION DAY (PBS), BAD BLOOD, and human rights projects for the ACLU. Recently, she line-produced WE SHALL REMAIN: TECUMSEH’s VISION directed by Chris Eyre and Ric Burns. King also field produced for Michael Moore’s recent documentary, CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY. A Native American of Creek/Seminole/Sac & Fox descent, King has a B.A. in Film Studies and Mass Communication from the University of Tulsa.

Executive Producer Chris Eyre’s film EDGE OF AMERICA received a 2005 Peabody Award and he was recognized with a Directors Guild Award. His first feature film, SMOKE SIGNALS, won the Audience Award and Eyre received the Filmmaker’s Trophy at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival. His other credits include A THIEF OF TIME and SKINWALKERS for PBS’s MYSTERY! In 1995, Eyre received a Rockefeller Foundation Intercultural Film Fellowship. A Cheyenne/Arapaho Native American, he earned his M.F.A. in Film and Television at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.

Editor Cindy Lee has worked extensively in documentary and narrative film, television, and commercials. Her feature editing credits include NO END IN SIGHT (Academy Award nominee 2008, New York Film Critics Circle 2007 Best Documentary, Sundance Special Jury Prize 2006), HOTEL GRAMERCY PARK (Special Jury Mention, Tribeca Film Festival 2008) and MANHATTAN, KANSAS (SXSW Film Festival 2006).

ATTN: DC-area documentary filmmakers

Docs In Progress is holding an all-day workshop next Saturday, January 23 in Silver Spring which is focused on fundraising for documentaries. This workshop is appropriate for documentary filmmakers of all experience levels – whether you have never raised funds for an independent documentary or have been frustrated by your efforts to do so.

The focus will be on providing participants with concepts and tools that can help you learn how to develop a fundraising plan, track the fundraising effort, research potential donors, conduct a fundraising drive, and solicit grants from corporations and foundations. There will be plenty of handouts of samples. The workshop is being led by Sam Hampton, an experienced fundraiser. Dr. Hampton, in addition to being the Director of Planning and Special Projects for Docs In Progress and a documentary filmmaker himself, is also the Founding Partner of Hampton Consulting, LLC which works with nonprofit, philanthropic, corporate, and public sector clients on building their strategic plans and increasing their chances of fundraising success – elements which apply just as easily to documentary filmmaking.

WHERE?
Docs In Progress Documentary House, 8700 First Avenue Silver Spring, MD (walking distance to free parking and the Silver Spring Metro)

ATTN: DC area documentarians...

Docs In Progress is excited to welcome two guest experts to our workshop offerings at the Documentary House in downtown Silver Spring, MD:

Jay Schlossberg from Media Central will be speaking next Monday about working internationally with a focus on how to navigate carnets, insurance, finding a local crew and fixer, and budgeting for things you may never have had to consider when filming in the U.S.
WHEN? Monday, January 25 (6:30 Networking/7:00-8:30 pm Presentation and Q&A)
FEE? $35 ($30 for Docs In Progress DocsInsiders). Because of limited space for only 15 participants, advance registration is highly recommended.
MORE INFO? http://www.docsinprogress.org/index.php?option=com_events&task=view_detail&agid=41&jevtype=jevent&year=2010&month=01&day=25&Itemid=1


Christine Intagliata's presentation on Writing Documentary Treatments was so popular last Fall that we've brought her back to lead a three-night workshop on the same subject. She'll focus on how to take the film in your head and translate your ideas into words to help with fundraising or working with a specific client. Participants will receive samples of successful treatments and, because this is a longer session, will get to develop their own treatments during the course.
WHEN? January 28 – February 11 (three consecutive Thursday nights from 7:00 – 9:00 pm)
FEE? $250 ($225 for Docs In Progress DocsInsiders). Because of limited space for only 10 participants, advance registration is highly recommended.

Check it out Hank's Sundance Blog – Entry #2 -Sundance Scene and Overherd

...People come to the fest to walk main street and troll for celebs. I heard Ben Affleck was creating quite a crowd, and I passed Michael Chiklis today. The sidewalks are continuously blocked by flocks around someone 'famous'. I am so outa da loop that I am not recognizing many faces in these spontaneous crowds. I passed by one gaggle yesterday, and did not recognize the guy who was signing autographs. Then a young lady said she wanted to tell him how much she loved him on General Hospital. Main Street is always good for a chuckle.

At a panel yesterday on Media Marketing, a panelist referred to 'District 9' as an “independent film,” because it had a budget of $30 million. The crowd groaned. More proof that the 'indy film' label has become as ubiquitous as 'fat free'...

Don't take this hard, Tailinh, but passing Michael Chiklis on the street doesn't exactly make me wanna go run to read Hank's blog. On the other hand, hearing Ben Affleck was creating quite a crowd is pretty damn exciting, gotta give you that.

Independent Documentary Filmmaker Seeks Outreach and Marketing Intern

I am an award winning documentary filmmaker based in Brooklyn, New York who is just finishing a new experimental short documentary about remembering called FORGET ME NOTS.
I am seeking an intern who can help me research the markets I have targeted for the distribution of this film and to help me focus my audience outreach strategy. This person must be able to employ critical thinking skills, work independently and be familiar with Mac computers. Knowledge of Excel and/or FileMaker are a plus.
This is an opportunity to get hands on experience for a very small company (rather than answering phones at a big firm) and would be ideal for someone studying marketing/outreach and/or a documentary film student who wants to learn what grass roots distribution is all about.
To learn more about the film and my work please visit www.dempseyrice.com
To ask questions or to apply for the position please email a resume and cover letter stating your experience (as a student or professional), why you are interested in working for a small production company and what you bring to the table.
dempsey@dempseyrice.com

Thank you!

REBEL DOCS
Rebel against the entrenched establishment. Reject authority, fight the power. Re-new your right for freedom and individuality. Docs can help us do that....right? Redford has said many times that docs are our last bastion of reliable truth since the traditional media... “has gone the way of the dodo.” And the docs this year at Sundance cover everything from Iraq to a female comedian's struggle to keep going despite the impenetrable boy's club. But do these films do anything to actually change the way Coke, Chevron and Citibank run the world?.... READ THE REST OF HANK'S BLOG

DOC ALLIANCE FILMS
The New Deal for Feature Documentaries

Doc Alliance Films – www.docalliancefilms.com – the new online documentary portal for Video on Demand. Doc Alliance is a partnership between five key European documentary film festivals: CPH:DOX Copenhagen, DOK Leipzig, IDFF Jihlava, Planete Doc Review Warsaw and VISIONS DU REEL Nyon.

www.docalliancefilms.com offers permanent access to over 250 outstanding documentaries selected by the five partner festivals. New films are added monthly and each one can be acquired through streaming or download.

The aim of the Doc Alliance initiative is to support the diversity of feature documentaries and to convince audiences of the fascinating, moving and instructive aspects of the cinéma du reel where reality surpasses fiction and becomes spectacular.

Doc Alliance was born with the awareness that new initiatives are needed to promote remarkable films to a general market that is less permeable to their circulation and commercialisation and to approach various audiences in every conceivable manner, ranging from cinema, television, DVD to VOD, and other networks.

Its objective is to create an inventive and dynamic distribution platform for filmmakers and producers by offering attractive alternatives, debates, choices and perspectives.

Doc Alliance Films is proud to announce that it can now be found on YouTube and other social networking platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Please keep checking the www.docalliancefilms.com for promotions and opportunities for viewers and filmmakers, as well as updates on new directions and initiatives of Doc Alliance, website upgrades and where you can find us next, from online publications to blogs and social networks.

NYC (Brooklyn) – I am in need of an assistant editor or a newbie editor who is looking for some experience but won't cost me much at all. I need to edit some materials for the DVD extras on a couple of projects (it's mostly cutting down interviews and similar stuff). Do any of you know anyone that is just starting out who might be interested? This is going to be in my home, so it's gotta be someone sane!

Affordable Web Design for Documentary Filmmakers

My name is Amanda Woods... I've posted here once before but it was many months ago and I'm sure my post is buried now, so I'm posting again.

I'm a beginning web design with a passion for documentaries. If you're in need of a website for yourself as a documentary filmmaker, or for a film, I'd love to work on it for you. I strive to keep my prices affordable and am willing to work within your budget. I'm also happy to work out payment plans if you're tight on cash.

My designs are clean and simple, nothing too fancy... not yet, anyway (I'm getting there). I would love the opportunity to work on more film sites, particularly ones in which a filmmaker can provide me with large still images from the film so that I can get a bit more creative/sophisticated with the design. Of course, I'll also work with your input.

You can learn more about my services and take a look at my samples on my website. Thus far, I've done mostly writer sites, so I'm not sure how well those will give you an idea of what I can do with a film site. But if you're interested in a website and if you're able to send me large images and a little bit of copy, I can play with those and give you some examples of what a site for you may look like before you commit to hiring me.

Here is my url:

http://www.plainbellysneetch.com

You can contact me using the form on the website, or email me directly at:

plainbellysneetch@gmail.com

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!

Amanda
