Ah, but some of us need to cast actors and voiceover artists for our
documentaries. I am in the midst of this and wish I'd been to such a
seminar before running current round of auditions...Which brings me
to a similar event, being sponsored by Women in Film and Video in
Washington DC:

WORKING WITH TALENT - WEDNESDAY, MARCH 1
Women in Film and Video's ongoing "Wednesday One" professional
development series returns on Wednesday, March 1 with a program
focused on how to work with the amazing wealth of talent in the DC
area. This panel will help producers and directors better understand
how to get the right actor for a project, whether it's a fiction
film, commercial, industrial, documentary reenactment, or voiceover
narration. What can you tell from a head-shot or demo reel? What's
involved with working with a casting agency? How do you run an
effective audition? What do you need to think about contracts and
unions? And, once you get your talent on board, what kind of
direction do they need from you?

Panelists will include actor Michael Gabel, producer/director
Virginia Williams, entertainment attorney Kurt Klaus, TV One Casting
Director Nikki Webber, and local SAG/AFTRA rep Jane Love.

The program will take place at the historic Charles Sumner School,
1201 17th Street (at M Street), NW Washington DC. Closest Metro
station is Farragut North. Join local actors and directors for
networking at 6:30 pm, with the panel to start at 7:00 pm. Free for
WIFV members, $15 for all others. More information at

Hi all,

I've been writing a documentary column for Jeffrey Wells website
http://hollywood-elsewhere.com - called Truth Be Told -
http://hollywood-elsewhere.com/truth - So far I've been writing a bit
about the film I'm working on, but mostly I've been covering films
that are fairly well known, and that are already out on DVD.

So, this is an announcement for you to check out the column, but to
also ask for comments, suggestions and possible film submissions.
I'd like to know what other aspects of documentary films you think I
should be writing about. And if you're interested, I could review
your films... help them get a just a bit more exposure. I'll be
happy to link to your websites or say whatever else you'd like to
get out there about your film.

Email me at: ross@eraticate.com - if you've got any suggestions or a
film that you'd like me to review.

Thanks!

THE GREAT WARMING IS COMING TO THE VILLAGE EAST CINEMA (181 Second
Avenue, New York, NY) BETWEEN APRIL 7TH - APRIL 14TH!

Narrated by Alanis Morissette and Keanu Reeves, The Great Warming is
a dramatic film about climate change, that sweeps around the world to
reveal how a changing climate is affecting the lives of people
everywhere.
The Great Warming includes statements from scientists, opinion-
makers, and social leaders, and a blunt assessment of America's
leadership - or lack of it - in what is clearly the most critical
environmental issue of the 21st century. Filmed in the USA, China,
Europe, and South America, this wide-ranging, compelling film taps
into the growing groundswell of public concern about climate change
to present an emotional, accurate picture of our children's planet.

OUR WORLD IS ROUND
A 90min documentary to be distributed worldwide about…

32 Independent Filmmakers following
32 Worldwide Fans supporting each of the 32 World Cup Teams,
But as with any knockout competition- there can only be one Winner!

We are searching the planet for 32 talented student or independent
filmmakers to compete for a place in what is possibly the biggest
global independent collaborative film project ever about soccer fans
and produce sections for a 90 min documentary feature film.

The score is this: each of the 32 filmmakers or production teams
need to follow one fan of one of the 32 qualifying nations for the
duration their teams last in the world cup. Your subject fan (could
even be yourself) should be passionate about football and be
following the World Cup in an extraordinary or special way. As soon
as the fan's team gets knocked out of the cup, he/r and the following
filmmaker drop out of the documentary. A final statement from
filmmaker and fan can be recorded but the producers won’t accept any
additional footage after the team has left the tournament. You send
a copy of your tapes to the ‘Our world is Round’ production team as
well as an edit log of preferred shots you want to see in the film
and then we splice the whole 90mins together with your section
included!

Filmmakers will be credited in the documentary as directors for their
sections when:
-The fan is filmed during the entire time his or her team lasts in
the World Cup
-The footage produced is of usable quality – Good sound is the most
important!
-You don’t film international football stars or go for any
professional match footage! This film is purely about the fans and
must focus on them and we will not use any such footage in the final
film.

4 Good reasons to get involved in this documentary:
1) Participants will have their own profile page on the Our World is
Round website and their own forum section where they can post updates
on their progress!

2) Media solicited contract that guarantees the filmmakers a certain
share of any takings and profits made from this film.

3) Media coverage about the project, International Film Festival
distribution, prospectus worldwide cinema distribution.

4) Being part of a totally unique and special film event and adding
it to your very own portfolio!

If you are interested, we need from you:
1. The country you are from and a short 100 word profile of yourself
(including photograph) with details of previous projects/portfolio
etc.

2. Details of the exciting fan character you are proposing to follow,
details of the team they support, and why you believe they are worthy
of screen time in a feature documentary! We want larger than life,
quirky, but more than anything – interesting characters!
This information can be emailed to:
filmmakers@ourworldisround.co.uk

Remember to suggest this to friends / colleagues and spread the word!
If you are interested, introduce yourself on the message board on our
website:
www.ourworldisround.co.uk

We need serious filmmakers with serious commitment. If you're
interested, please get in touch:

SCREENING FOR ACADEMY CONSIDERATION (APRIL 28-MAY 5 in L.A.)

As many of you know, the cost for a single independent producer to
rent a theater in LA or NY for 7 days (in order to be eligible for
Academy consideration) can run up to $15,000. We want to release
our film on DVD as soon as possible, yet still be eligible for Academy
consideration. Because of that, we have decided to organize a Los
Angeles screening ourselves and invite other filmmakers to share the
cost.

We can show films from 10:00am until 10:00pm at Laemmle’s and each
film will be screened once a day for 7 consecutive days (thus meeting
the requirement for Academy consideration). The cost will be split by
all the filmmakers who participate. This will happen on April 28th
through May 5th. So if your documentary, short or feature is ready,
please contact us immediately to reserve a slot. We will be working
with Rick Pollard at Laemmle's to make this event happen.


The 7 day screening in LA or NY is just one of a long list of
requirements the Academy has. More information can be found here:

http://www.oscars.org/78academyawards/rules/rule12.html

In order to screen at Laemmle's during the run we have plannede (April
28-May 5), certain requirements must be met.

Here are the requirements:

1) Your film can be either Feature or Short Documentary.

2) It needs to be 24-or 48-frame progressive scan digital format ONLY
(minimum native resolution 1280 by 1024 pixels). If you do not have
it on this type of format and you need to transfer it, we know some
great places to get it done.

4) The cost is estimated around $700-$800 per 15 minutes. So if your
doc is 60 minutes you are looking at about $2800-$3200, which is much
cheaper than $15,000, if you were to do it by yourself.

5) We are accepting films from all over the world.

6) If you are not in LA and would like to participate, you can contact
Tim Jack at 818 728-0720. He will be in charge of handling out-of-town
films. (there is an extra fee for this).

This could be a great way to meet some of the requirements without the
extraordinary cost. Let's all help each other!

Please call or email for more information or to reserve your spot.

A SPECIAL FUNDRAISING EVENT
Sunday April 9th 2006
11:00am

Over half a million mothers have sent their sons to war since the
tragedy of September 11th, 2001. Some of them have supported their
child’s patriotic service and sacrifice with pride, while others have
condemned the war and its cause, angry at those responsible for
sending their loved ones across the world to fight. But all of these
mothers—regardless of their political sentiment or affiliation—share a
common connection: the unmistakable longing for their child’s safety
and the powerlessness they feel for an inability to protect and
shelter them any longer.

My Child: Mothers of War is a groundbreaking documentary that focuses
entirely on the mothers of our American Soldiers serving in Iraq.

No film has previously delved so deeply into the psyche of the mothers
whose children are serving their country. And through their
testimonies—discussing the disconcerting days and sleepless nights,
the ecstatic joy of a phone call or the exultation of a simple
e-mail—the stakes of sending our sons and daughters off to war are
redefined, as are their sacrifices. Mothers of varying backgrounds and
beliefs will have their experiences shared to expose the common thread
of motherhood and sacrifice that serves the backbone of this film.


MY CHILD
MOTHERS OF WAR

A groundbreaking documentary about American mothers sending their sons
to war!

Angeliki Giannakopoulos

Tickets will be sold at the door.
Ticket price: $20.00
Critics are saying:

Angeliki Giannakopoulos’s My Child: Mothers of War is an ingenious
piece of cinema because of its incredibly simple agenda: to tell
stories of war that we rarely hear, but that are the most common of all.
Terri Nocco, Co-Editor, Euphorix Magazine

Director Angeliki Giannakopoulos took painstaking care not to
politicize the movie. In an era when many documentaries are thinly
disguised polemics, Giannakopoulos tried to balance, frame for frame,
the mothers' political comments.
Joe Garofoli, San Francisco Chronicle

Cut to baby pictures of these soldiers. Cut to White House briefings
about the escalating conflict in Iraq. Cut straight to your heart if
you have a child of your own.
Karen Hershenson, Contra Costa Times.

Ms. Giannakopoulos said: "America's heart is bleeding, and America's
heart is the moms of this country -- and they're going through a hard
time right now."
