Hello again. As i said on my "introduce yourself" post, I'm available for composing original music for interesting documentaries.
Some of my work can be heard on my website at http://www.marioberlinguer.com.

I have a myspace page with some more music, and then another page on NextCat with a couple different things.

Best way to contact me is at "info" and then the @ and then "marioberlinguer.com" (without the " of course).

Thanks and keep up with the good work!

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.

Hey all--

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.

  • I'm located in Asia –> Servers located in Florida
  • Buyers get secure link to download title to their desktop

(((Contact me at camerado@camerado.com to discuss)))

FREE Screening: Cynthia Wade's FREEHELD, The New School, April 11

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.

I am looking for a group to view my film. I am just finishing editing it. (I think, LOL) I did a private viewing a couple of weeks ago and made some adjustments and now I would like to screen it again. 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)
I am not offering money, just an opportunity to watch a film and network. Just a little background, This is my first film and I did not get any grants.

Need Funding for Your Project? Get Grants From Foundations and the Govt. w/ IPF Fiscal Sponsorship

FREE: We would like to give guys a free add on so when you call please mention The D-Word and we will give you online donation acceptance with credit card processing free for six months.

Hey guys, we are the Independent Production Fund, an NYC-based non-profit documentary production company with 20 years of experience in cable and public television. Our mission is to assist filmmakers who focus on important stories and subjects in achieving their visions; because these films often have a tremendous impact on their audience and our world.
Because we know that many on The D-Word are working on great projects that are struggling for funding we would like to invite you to apply to our expanding Fiscal Sponsorship program. This will give you access to foundation grants and government funding that is unavailable to individuals and for profit production companies. I would like to emphasize we are not a school or a membership association but a professional production company with a dedicated, experienced staff that understands every step of acquiring public funds because we use them in our own projects.

Some of you may be experienced filmmakers who are just looking for a like-minded organization to act as a conduit for your funds and we can accommodate that. However if you are not as experienced with public sector fundraising we can help you every step of the way with a full range of services like fundraising (and production) consultation, financial management, online credit card donation processing and discounted rentals (including equipment, Avid suites and meeting space).

Take a look at http://www.IPFMEDIA.org/fiscalsponsorship to see the depth and breadth of the programs we have produced and the kinds of services we can offer your production.

I have a Sony ECM-44B Omni-Directional Lavalier Condenser Microphone for sale for $150. It was purchased from B & H last year and only used for a few weeks. It's in perfect condition, except for a small scuff on the cable which does not affect performance. I have the receipt and it's in its original packaging. Great mic and great deal! Includes mic/capsule, tie clip, windscreen and case. Pickup in LA or ship to rest of US (add shipping cost).

From B & H's website: The ECM-44B makes the exceptional quality of Sony's electret condenser microphones available for budget conscious productions, and a variety of sound reinforcement requirements, such as lectures and demonstrations. Measuring only 8.5 x 14.5mm, the ECM-44B reduces the visual distraction to the audience. The ECM-44B can be depended upon for clean, bright, yet natural reproduction. To maintain its low cost, this microphone operates on a single AA (does not accept phantom power) battery for over 5000 hours of service.

We are looking for an executive producer for the documentary project The Navajo Riders.

The Navajo Riders covers the Navajo Nation Council Horseback Ride in which council delegates ride to different parts of the Navajo Nation to learn about the needs of the Navajo people at townhall meetings, recreating an old tradition. The seven day ride begins at the base of Navajo Mountain, goes through the Monument Valley, and ends in Window Rock, the capital of the Navajo Nation. We follow the NaaTsis Aan Riders throughout this exciting 510-mile journey through three states passing the Navajo volcanic fields, a meteor crash site, and a glacial lake. Along the way suffering temperatures above a hundred degrees, we encounter wild mustangs and ancient Anazasi structures built thousands of years ago. During this week-long event we explore the unique traditions of the Navajo culture.

The Navajo Riders will be submitted to the Native American category for the Sundance Film Festival. Navajo producer, director, and writers are attached to the documentary project.

We have been doing the Navajo Council ride for the past eight years. For the past three years, I have been filming the ride. With these images, I created a trailer, The Navajo Riders 2005, to present the idea for this documentary. To see the trailer please go to www.joshuedeltoro.com

Dear friends,

I'm a brazilian journalist working as a field producer/fixer for foreign TV crews, film and video makers

I would like to let you know about my availability for anyone who may need someone in Brazil and southern south american countries.

In my position I can quickly provide :

- interviews and visits scheduling

- suitable natural sceneries and movie set
locations – indoor and outdoor

Brazil and South America

- translations portuguese/english/spanish

- dynamic, productive and detailed trip
schedules

You can expect hard working and willingness to help
people bringing out the best of what is possible and
impossible to be done in a limited time
reporting/filming trip in Brazil. From organizing a
safe expedition to remote indigenous tribes of Amazon
forest to an interview with our new president Lula.
