Doing my first documentary film in Italy in January. The sound guy backed out, and now I'm doing my own sound. Really, I just need a shotgun mike/shock mount (windscreen and cable) and boom pole. While I can't afford to buy my own right now, I'm wondering if anyone has one they can loan me. It would be SO greatly appreciated. I can give you a deposit and return it in perfect condition.
I'm at email@example.com, located in New Jersey and can pick up in the area or New York or pay for shipping.
Recommendations needed for documentary sound recordist in London, UK. Dates are 20 and 21 January. Involves stereo and lots of singing.
We are a small DC-based independent filmmaking team, with several award-winning shorts under our belts, seeking a creative editor for collaboration on our first feature-length project: a documentary about the simmering conflict between religious fundamentalists and increasingly open gay and lesbian people in rural and small town America.
The ideal candidate will have experience in weaving together intimate verite footage, interviews, archival clips, graphic animation, and personal narration to craft a fast-paced film that is engaging and informative.
Check out this link for a brief introduction to the project: http://qwaves.com/qwaves38/Heartland.html
Please reply with resume, or for more information, to: firstname.lastname@example.org

Do you have extensive video of a major tourist attraction, a National Park, a City tour ? Are you looking for a way to re-purpose your work ?
My company has developed the GPS Ranger, www.gpsranger.com.
The Ranger is a handheld computer with a 4" LCD screen and built in GPS technology. It is designed to be an automated tour guide product. Our product is installed in 7 locations; Martin Luther King Historical Site, Vicksburg National Military Park, Death Valley National Park, Cedar Breaks Nationa Monument, the San Francisco And Dallas Zoo and most recently a walking tour of Key West, Florida. We have 8 more projects lined up as well.
We are looking to expand the number of partners we work with.
We have the hardware and the software and we are looking for content development partners who have compelling and interesting location based stories.
Our system will take your video in 1 to 5 minute segments and have your content automatically trigger in front of a point of interest, how about walking tours for Paris, Venice, Moscow and so on.
Attached is a brochure. Take a look and let me know if you are interested, Thank you

Some festivals will not accept entries of productions that were released before a certain year. Some will accept entries regardless of the year of release. What is the situation with the one you describe above?
