(I'm not quite sure why the Topic Cops erased your post in "Shameless Self Promotion" because many, many others have done the same thing; and as far as double-posting goes, i think it kind of makes sense for you to post both in the public and private topics b/c not all members read the public postings...)
Anyways, congratulations again and have a wonderful time! If I can make it out the ArcLight, I certainly will stop by and say hi.
Explanation given in the Shameless topic. But, hey, are Topic Cops not human?

Monica, you may wish to email Lisa directly as she may not be checking in regularly. Click on her name for contact details.
Scarlett, thanks for the posting. Nice to see a film festival in the US that does not require entrance fees and will on-post to other groups if you like, via Cinema Nova. They have a terrific network of independent filmmakers from several countries. Good luck!
Melanie, if you are still looking for someone, I do transcription. I have tons of experience transcribing interviews for docs. Email me sarah(at)lyricalfilms(dot)com
I'm considering an office move to Brooklyn, and wonder if anyone is interested in either SUBLETTING me a few desks' worth of space in their existing office, or in going in on a space together. Anywhere in the Burough will do. We'll likely be between 1-3 people on any given day.
amir, you should register for the professional side of the d-word. you've only gone halfway in the process.
Amir, Robert Richter had an office to sublet somewhere in New York, am not sure where but you might want to check it through the search engine or contact Bob directly.

THE WALK-ONS by Tim Durham and Aimee Nowland (30 minutes)
College football may be best known for the frenzied competition for top recruits. But what of the local students who want to play for the team? With no full rides offered, these kids work part-time jobs to pay for their tuition. Trampled daily and sold on the hope that after a season or two, they might catch the coach's eye, these walk-ons are not ready to let go of their dreams to go further than the practice field.
MARE IGNOTUM (SEA OF MYSTERY) by Loretta Oleck Berger and Linton Suttner (70 minutes)
It's hard to miss Max Shapiro. Whether on his Harley or showing off his tattoos and pet snake, Max has traveled many lonely roads in his 70 years. But it is the less traveled inner road which most interests his niece as she takes us on a journey to discover more about him and herself in the process.
This program is organized by Adele Schmidt and Erica Ginsberg from Docs in Progress and is co-sponsored by The Documentary Center at the George Washington University.
