Zeitgeist Films will be releasing two great documentaries on DVD this fall. The first, coming out October 28, BILLY THE KID, is the first feature from director Jennifer Venditti and is a wonderful film about a fifteen-year-old kid in a small town in Maine who is both different and wonderfully unique. Info can be found here:
http://www.zeitgeistfilms.com/film.php?directoryname=billythekid

The other, which comes out November 18, is UP THE YANGTZE, a film by Yung Chang that has been a great sleeper box office hit this summer, about people who are affected by the huge public project of China's Three Gorges Dam, and the tourist boats that travel the Yanqtze River. Gorgeously shot and engaging, this is a great cinematic doc. More info is here:

Both are available direct through http://www.zeitgeitstvideo.com or through Amazon, Netflix, or your favourite store.

Media Empowerment & The Developing World

Presented by Barefoot Workshops in the B&H Seminar Space.

Barefoot Workshops is a New York City and Los Angeles based not-for-profit, founded by Chandler Griffin in 2004, that offers short, intensive workshops around the world in narrative and documentary filmmaking.

In this two-hour session, Chandler Griffin will provide an overview of Barefoot’s role in using media in the developing world to help Civil Society Organizations, Non-Governmental & Governmental Organizations, and individuals make change where it is needed the most. Chandler will discuss the media tools and formats used on the ground, how to conceptualize a workshop and ways to get involved. The goal of this session is to demystify the “how can I do this?” and give individuals a chance to learn how Barefoot Workshops does it, ask all the questions and get involved. You will learn that through Barefoot’s international workshops, they offer field placements for international students to assist organizations on the ground with media projects that help them to address challenges in their communities. These “hybrid” workshops result in dynamic learning environments, and open the way for international students to gain valuable field experience, and to learn about issues firsthand. If you are interested in discovering how you can change the world through the power of digital media, come find out how Barefoot can train anyone from vastly different backgrounds and skill levels, how to blend the technical and artistic aspects of storytelling, beginning with the basics of image-making all the way through to post-production to create a “symphony” of images and sound. Barefoot Workshops hopes that by sharing “how they do it”, they will mobilize individuals to get involved and help make a difference with media.

I recommend registering if you want to attend. It's a small space and B&H sent it out to about 30,000 people. I know that 75 people have already registered.

Please join us for upcoming screenings of our documentary, Airplay: The Rise and Fall of Rock Radio.

Our Film Festival Screenings:

Coney Island Film Festival
Sunday, September 28, 2008 – 12:30pm

Coney Island Museum, 1208 Surf Ave. 2nd floor


Dixie Film Festival (Athens, GA)

“Airplay: The Rise and Fall of Rock Radio,” a new documentary by filmmakers Carolyn Travis and Chris Fox Gilson of Travisty Productions, takes viewers on a high energy journey through rock radio’s impact on American society--from spreading black music to white America in the 1950s to fanning the flames of ‘60s rebellion to the uncensored personalities and playlists of satellite radio today. Packed with insider stories from iconic deejays of the past fifty years, “Airplay” persuasively links the pioneers of music radio to the seismic cultural shifts of integration, the struggle to end the Vietnam War, and the corporatizing of America.

“Airplay” chronicles the innocent years of AM radio personalities like Cousin Brucie, Murray the K, Dan Ingram, Jerry Blavat, Casey Kasem, Dick Biondi, Rick Shaw and Wolfman Jack, the payola scandal, Top 40, the rise of progressive FM deejays like San Francisco’s Tom Donahue, the takeover of radio music by corporate giants and the new voice of rock radio through satellite. Rockin’ with fabulous radio songs by the Kinks, Donna Summer and LL Cool J, and spiced with famous music personalities including Fabian, Lesley Gore, Pat Boone, Grace Slick, David Crosby, Bob Weir from the Grateful Dead, and Ray Manzarek of the Doors, the film takes viewers deep inside the rock radio phenomenon.

Travisty Productions makes documentaries that dig below the surface of pop culture including “Rock Radio Revolution,” “Rock Jocks: the FM Revolution,” and “Wildwood Days.” Their films, which have appeared on PBS Public Television stations nationwide, have garnered numerous awards and were screened by the Museums of Radio and Television in New York and Los Angeles. Travis is a former news producer, Capitol Hill reporter and was an on-air radio personality herself, for 96X-FM in Miami. Gilson, a former Madison Avenue creative director and global-production executive, also authored best-sellers sold to Disney and New Line studios.

so here's the million dollar question, Chris... how the heck did you manage to clear all the rock songs that I assume pop up all through the documentary? this seems to present a very solid case of utilizing Fair Use, but i just want to know if you did that, and then how you dealt with (or plan to deal with) any future claims by record companies...

This is the Managing Producer with American News Project in Washington D.C. (http://www.americannewsproject.com). ANP is planning to fly me to St. Louis on Thursday to cover the Vice Presidential Debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin.

Instead of covering the debate venue itself, we are planning to cover the VP watching party at this following venue.

St. Louis, MO 63103

We are looking for a stringer to work Thursday with us. We need the stringer to do two things:

Filmmaker Anne Aghion (Emmy-award winner best known for her films 'In Rwanda we say...the family that does not speak dies' and 'Gacaca') is screening her latest film, 'Ice People' for Independents Night at the Walter Reade Theater (165 W. 65th) in NYC on Thursday, October 16th at 6:30 pm. Check out the brief synopsis below or click to go to the Film Society site and to buy tickets.

Aghion spent four months 'on the ice' with modern-day polar explorers, to find out what drives dedicated researchers to leave the world behind in pursuit of science, and to capture the true experience of living and working in this extreme environment.

"...An intriguing slice-of-life that observes the area's staggeringly beautiful and imposing landscapes and the unique challenges experienced by those who work there."
