Hello all . . . I'm working on a project in which I would like to use entries from an old diary I've uncovered. However, I'm having the hardest time reading a large portion of what the person wrote. Does anyone out there know of a good hand-writing expert who may help me "translate" the entries? Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!

WHAT'S SCREENING?

COMRADES by Dean Hamer
Struggling against 5000 years of Confucian tradition and a communist government that views any type of organizing with suspicion, China's gay community is finding novel ways to fit into the fabric of modern society without hiding who they really are.

CASA (HOUSE) by Luis Alaejos and Raúl Díez Alaejos
In what was once the tallest building in all of South America, 1500 neighbors of all social classes co- exist. This is a portrait of Montevideo's Palacio Salvo and its occupants: artists of little and great renown, recent arrivals attracted by the building's bohemian atmosphere, those who want to leave, but can't, and those who are the ghosts of a building's faded past.

Please come join us and pass the word on. Filmmakers and non-filmmakers alike are welcome to attend and participate.

EXPERIENCED ASSISTANT EDITOR NEEDED TO ORGANIZE LARGE SCALE DOCUMENTARY

I need an Assistant Editor to come to Cleveland for several days, a week, or however much time necessary, to come up with organization system for a long form doc containing 200 – 300 hours of footage and numerous characters. Footage needs to be logged and searchable, interviews need to be transcribed and we need to be able to train interns to do much of the rudimentary work. Editing HDV material in Final Cut.

Fee negotiable plus travel/living expenses and accommodations. Could eventually be an ongoing position depending on funding. Prefer someone within a 1000-mile vicinity of Cleveland (i.e. New York).

Please email resume to:

lpaglin@en.com

You can read about my other work here:

Hi Laura, do you want the AE to transcribe the interviews? I'm sure that will take much more time...


Laura Moire Paglin
Tue 19 Feb 2008Link

No. The idea would be to come up with the best system so we can train interns to do the actual grunt work. For example, should they be given clones of QT files? How will they log the time code? etc.


Laura Moire Paglin
Thu 21 Feb 2008Link

But if anyone has a better idea on how to start organizing a project for an editor before you can afford to pay one, please let me know!


Robert Goodman
Thu 21 Feb 2008Link

Your best solution is to get all 200 hours onto hard drives. Then make clones of sections of the materials that can be loaded into an edit system so people have control over the material. Let them make subclips with notes about the material. The transcript project should be done by a professional who can insert time code into the documents. That said, I wouldn't bother with transcripts of all the material. Too expensive. Just transcribe the 20% that may make it into the film.


Laura Moire Paglin
Thu 21 Feb 2008Link

Robert – thanks for responding. I'm going to post my question and response to yours in the editing section.


Fredric Lean
Fri 22 Feb 2008Link

Hello,
what would be the best options in terms of camera to shoot a shoestring budget documentary which requires a lot of outdoor shootings following a subject discreetly in different local public places and some indoors for interviews- (pretty much guerilla/ news style)?

here are the options:
-Panasonic DVX 100b
-Panasonic AG-HVX200(P2 cards + camera =outside our budget range-unless somone knows a great place to buy it cheap)
- Sony HDR-FX1 (someone told me good but not so great)
-Sony HVR-A1U
-Sony HVR-Z1U

now i have been told, since the film style will be pretty much hidden camera style (almost) , to use may be a high end HD consumer camera so i can hide it even in pocket.
does anyone know anything about the quality of these cameras below:
-Panasonic HDC-HS9 (HD & 24p)
Canon HV20 HDV (HD & 24p)
Panasonic AG-HSC1
Sony HDR-CX7

any suggestions or help?

thank you

http://www.idfa.nl/industry/idfacademy/summer-school-2008/how-where-when.aspx


Christopher Wong
Fri 22 Feb 2008Link

it's nice that IDFA wants to do this, but c'mon, that's friggin expensive. first and second time directors who are currently in the midst of producing their films do NOT have the money to jaunt off to amsterdam for a bit of mentorship. to go from the u.s., you'd have to spend about $2500-$3000 for tuition, airfare, and accomodations. no IDFA Summer School for me.


Matt Dubuque
Fri 22 Feb 2008Link

Fredric-

This might well be a question for the mentoring section.

That said, the Canon HV20 is probably the best disposable high definition camcorder you can buy. Because of its plastic parts, it is unlikely to last you much more than one film. But for what it is, a disposable HD camcorder, it can't be beat. It has a very nice lens and superior image stabilization. Ranked as product of the year (2007) by Videomaker magazine.

Edited Fri 22 Feb 2008 by Matt Dubuque

Matt Dubuque
Sat 23 Feb 2008Link

I must add that one nearly fatal flaw in the Canon HV 20 is the sound. In my book, any camcorder that uses mini-jacks for its mike inputs is completely unacceptable for almost all serious work by any documentary professional.

You can, however, bring the sound quality of the HV20 up to a level that will be acceptable to the vast majority of viewers by using good mikes connected to an XLR adapter (such as a Beachtek). That XLR adapter then plugs directly into the HV 20.


Christopher Wong

(recently posted by D-worder Rafael La Luz in members-only "Sound and Music" topic)


Nigel Walker
Sat 23 Feb 2008Link

Matt, I was interested to know how you went about getting permission to film in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.


Joe Moulins
Sat 23 Feb 2008Link

An XLR adapter will do nothing to improve sound quality for an HV20, or any camcorder. The adapter plugs into the mini-jack, so you're still dealing with that bottleneck. Plus, you're adding another noisy connection to the path between mic and tape, and the pots in the adapter itself which will get dirty and add their own noise. In fact, even when they're not dirty they're pretty noisy.

There are some decent mics available (Rode, Sennheiser,?) with 1/8 inch plugs. I'd go with one of those, or record audio to a separate recorder altogether.


Matt Dubuque
Sat 23 Feb 2008Link

Thanks for the clear thinking Joe!

Nigel, one of the qualifications for being a Member here is that I need to be of demonstrable use and benefit to the professional documentary community. As things appear to stand now, I need to wait until completion of one of my films before I am granted membership. Unfortunately for me, that will be next year.

I do not object to that requirement. I am willing to play by the rules; that's fine. I am not complaining about the rules and I am not attempting to change them.

If you can assist me in becoming a member sooner, then I am willing to share what I know about this with you and others immediately upon receipt of Group Membership. I am aware this decision is not up to you.

As a member, you have much more power in this group than I do. You have access to all sorts of discussions that I am not privy to, that I would benefit enormously from.

Until that fine day when I become a member, I have to zealously guard certain crown jewels which I do possess. Otherwise I would be at a complete and absolute disadvantage to every member here.

Nothing personal at all. It's just part of paying my dues.

Very best wishes to you.

Hi Matt,

Thank you for the info. I am going to post the question on mentoring as per your suggestion. This is one crew person filmmaker who is trying to reach a professional as much as he can. so any help about shooting tips (camera, cinematography, sound) is VERY VERY welcome! :-))
Thanks for your support.


Nigel Walker
Sun 24 Feb 2008Link

No worries Matt. The question comes from just an inherent interest for 'all things production' in the Middle East. I worked there for a few years and wondered if there had been any significant changes in access to Mecca. You stated you are a newcomer and I was impressed that you had this kind of access, the assumption I made was that you weren't affiliated with any large media group. I wasn't looking for any hard earned personal contacts just some basics, in the past we used crews out of Egypt because it was difficult to get any non-muslim producers into Mecca. I should have phrased the question differently, apologies. My days working in the Middle East are, in all likelihood, over.

You are right in assuming that I have no influence here and can do nothing to help you become a member quicker, I'll leave that to Doug and the more senior members here who have invested years of their lives creating this invaluable resource and support network.

I will say this though, it surprises me how little the mentoring section is used by enthusiasts, you mention you are not privy to a wealth of information, I disagree, all you have to do is ask a question, the members are incredibly generous with their time and advice.

In reply to Matt Dubuque's post on Sun 24 Feb 2008 :
Matt, I may be speaking out of school here, as I'm a fairly new member and not one of the hosts. This forum is, in my limited experience (though I have read every post since the beginning and found a wealth of useful information) one that is, almost above all, based on a selfless spirit of generosity and community. Established filmmakers help each other, and they also help newcomers to the field in public forums, such as this one. I haven't seen any quid pro quo requests here... if someone requests information or assistance the response is always generous and unqualified. Paying it forward, to use a trite phrase. I should think that your providing a member with requested information would be automatic and not come attached with conditions. You could request the member's e-mail and provide the info in private if you did not want to share your "crown jewels" with the public (members do this all the time). It's only my way of thinking, but if you demonstrated through your posts in the public threads that you could indeed be a productive participant in this little village by EXCHANGING information unconditionally with both members and enthusiasts in an intelligent, thoughtful, and professional manner, it might very well accelerate your admission as a member even though you are an inexperienced filmmaker. Food for thought. And don't get me wrong: it's great to have you here participating.

Nowadays it seems to be in a big storm?


Matt Dubuque
Thu 28 Feb 2008Link

Thanks Nigel-

I'm not complaining. But I think it would be incorrect to state that being a Member is identical to not being a member.

I remember as a law student the first time I entered the Stanford Law Library. The wealth of information there is staggering. The general public is not allowed in, for good reason.

But being allowed to study in those stacks of 18th and 19th century books, where the majority of thoughts are in complete paragraphs, was a revelation indeed.

And I have lots of questions about Vertov. For example, what influence did his films have on the very famous German actress Leni Riefenstahl before she started directing many years later? She must have seen his films; they were a smash in Europe. What influence did Vertov have on Bunuel?

And James Longley (member and 3 time Academy award nominee) is the only person I know of who has spent 2 years in Russia absolutely immersed in Soviet montage. I know he's a member here, but I've never seen him post in the Mentoring section. And I'm sure he has the kind of deep, specialized knowledge I seek.

I'm not being ungrateful or complaining. I'm simply able to make distinctions between my specialized inquiries and the general needs of others.

If you are ever at the SF Doc-u-Link I'd love to meet you.

And I'm glad you understand my point about crown jewels, even if others do not. One thing I can say, for me it just seems essential to have an Islamic film crew filming in Saudi Arabia, especially given what I intend to film there. All my analysis starts from there.

I saw an early cut of Prodigal Sons about 6 months ago and, while it needed more work, it's an utterly fascinating (very!) personal story. I hear Kim's put narration in so can't wait to see it again.

I am interested in advice on how to find right person (film maker) and fund a small documentary style effort and what might be interesting goals / benefits that makes it a win/win for company and film producer. Budget would likely be shoestring, but could be an interesting experience.

Example situation:
Say you have a big event every year like MacWorld (AppleWorld) or an auto show (but put on by only one company, not a tradeshow)... you show off your latest products, you launch 2 or 3 new things, and you show a vision of where your company is going (concept cars, or other physical immersive manifestations). You have to entice the media and your top customers to attend and you want to broadcast and create discussion around all 3 parts of this event experience...

I am exploring how a highly experiential event with similar attributes could leverage film/documentary storytelling in interesting, meaningful ways – meaningful to the company, its stakeholders, and the film maker...

Some nice to have goals for company might be:
+ capture people's reactions around new product innovation at large/major event in Eastern Europe (new product concepts around several themes, dramatic event experience in major city, new products being launched, other interesting products being demonstrated/show for sales in both business to business and business to consumer arena)
+ capture value design is adding to business
+ possible interviews with CEO/CMOs from top companies
+ many other areas that could be mutually interesting if discussed... but trying to understand if this might be interesting to a qualified independent film maker or high potential starting out

There could be two cuts... both would likely be very people-focused. But, one could capture essence of business value and the other could be all around creative/design side of things.

Recently set up this portal to sell iPOD / portable-ready MP4s of my own titles BOOKWARS, SUSAN HERO, and others, and am now offering the platform to other filmmakers who may want to sell MP4 versions (non- DRM) of their work.

No guarantees re: revenue, but probably worth a try, especially for older releases that aren't well repped in the digital space.

The New School presents
The Sixth Annual Dorothy H. Hirshon Film Festival – Vision and Risk: The Films of Cynthia Wade
Date: April 11, 2008
7:00 p.m., with panel discussion and reception to follow
Tishman Auditorium
66 W. 12th Street, New York City
Free and Open to the Public

Screening and Discussion: FREEHELD, winner of the 2008 Academy Award for Documentary Short Subject
FREEHELD chronicles Detective Lieutenant Laurel Hester’s struggle to transfer her pension to her domestic partner, Stacie Andree. With less than six months to live, Laurel refuses to back down when the elected officials of Ocean County, New Jersey, deny her request to leave her pension to her partner, an option granted only to heterosexual married couples. FREEHELD captures the media frenzy and passionate advocacy campaign spurred by Laurel’s plight; it also tells the quieter, personal story of the deep love between Laurel and Stacie as they face the reality of losing each other, creating a powerful, nuanced study of a grassroots fight for justice.

YIKES! MIAMI-AREA DP / CAMERA OP NEEDED IN A HURRY!

Just received an opportunity for a talking-head intvw with a movie star that's very pertinent to my doc. It's in Miami Beach, this week, probably during business hours. Only about one hour of actual intvw, but then set-up and breakdown on top of the one hour.

If anyone fits this bill, is a DP with professional credits and his/her own camera (Sony DVCam preferred) and light kit, drop me a line at:

cultmovies [at] hotmail [dot] com

This is for an in-production feature-length doc that already has some interest from cable and has other movie-star intvws in the can.

The Utopia Film Festival, a community festival for which I have been serving as Program Director, is now accepting submissions. Would love to see any D-Worder submissions. No premiere requirements and we do accept films made within the past two years. Here's our blurb...

The Utopia Film Festival showcases short and feature-length works which entertain and enlighten audiences of all ages. Fiction, Documentaries, Animations, Music Videos, and Experimental Films are all welcome. This year's festival will take place from October 24-26, 2008 in Greenbelt, Maryland.

The Utopia Film Festival is an annual cinematic event, now in its fourth year. It reflects the utopian ideals of Greenbelt, Maryland – one of America's first planned communities. Located between the urban centers of Washington DC and Baltimore, Maryland, Greenbelt was designed and built under the Roosevelt Administration's New Deal Federal Works Program in the 1930s. It remains a vibrant community and its historic city center (where many of the festival events take place) has been designated a national historic district.

While we encourage all submissions, these are special strands which we have planned for 2008:

UTOPIAN VISIONS: Films which address themes of community building, promoting diversity, bettering social and economic conditions, or preserving the environment.

KID VIDS: Family-friendly animated or live-action works. Films produced by children and teenagers are especially encouraged.

HALLOWEEN SCREEN: Since our festival coincides with the week of Halloween, we welcome submissions of serious or spoofy horror films appropriate for the season.

Submit now to take advantage of the early bird discount rate on submission fees.

Early-Bird Deadline: April 25, 2008
Regular Deadline: June 13, 2008
Late Deadline: July 1, 2008

Subtitling job for a German speaker:

Someone wants to have his late father's video Holocaust testimony subtitled from German to English. The interview has already been transcribed and translated. Length is 1:43.

Having just worked with subtitles myself, I know that it works better when the subtitler speaks the native language. That's why I'm passing up this opportunity.

It would be easiest if the editor lives in the States, since the tapes are in NY, but an accomodation could probably be reached if this is not the case.

Please contact me if interested.

If anyone is in the Providence/Boston/Conn area and would provide a place to screen it and up to 10 or 15 people to critique it I would be greatly in your debt. (Basically I can go anyplace driving distance,any day, as long as I can make it back to work the next morning)
