Well I guess I'll post my resume too. I work full-time, standard business hrs for a cable doc series, but outside of that I am trying to get involved with as many projects in the LA area as possible, as a way to lend my skills out, to meet local filmmakers, and to just know what's being produced nowadays. I've done PA work, scheduling/coordinating, editing on FCP 3, public relations, film fest submissions, film fest boothing, and lots of other random stuff. At this point, I am open to unpaid positions.

Hartmut Bitomsky's new film, DUST opening tomorrow at Film Forum!

IT DOESN’T GET MORE BASIC THAN DUST. And it is only a filmmaker of Harmut Bitomsky’s stature who could successfully tackle a subject so seemingly uncinematic — by bringing to it a rigorous intelligence and a masterful visual imagination. DUST scours industrial sites and office building interiors, paint factories, and demolition sites. It deals with dust-repellent products, the medicinal cost of dust, the history of the Dust Bowl and the aftereffects of the dust created on 9/11. The definitive film on an elusive phenomenon that is both everywhere and nowhere.

Wednesday, December 3 – Tuesday, December 9 • One Week
Showtimes: 1:15, 3:30, 6:00, 8:00, 10:00

Hello everyone,

I wanted to put in a good word for a grant writer I've had the pleasure of working with over the past 2 years, Joanna Rabiger. I actually found her from a posting here on d-word.

She's incredibly talented, experienced, great with deadlines, and most importantly – this year her writing helped us get funding from the Jerome Foundation, Sundance Institute, Gucci/Tribeca, BBC Storyville, and most recently – ITVS.

I know we wouldn't have gotten this far without her so I wanted to spread the word. Oh, and her rate is very affordable.

Hello everyone,

I'm working on a feature length doc that has recently been recommended for funding by ITVS. We just finished shooting and are gearing up for post. One huge task we have right now is to prepare our budget for ITVS (past and future). It clearly takes a whole lot of time and skills that we don't currently have. So right now I'm looking for an Associate Producer/Production Manager to join our team for the duration of the project to help us manage and deal with our budget. And because ITVS has such specific requirements, I'm hoping to find someone in NYC who has experience specifically with ITVS.

I'm also looking for a lawyer to help us with the contract negotiation. Again, I'd like someone with ITVS experience.

This is our first feature and much of this is new us, so if anyone has any advice as we move into this next phase of production its always much appreciated.

Thanks! – Michael

Hi All,

She is incredibly talented and dedicated, with a gift for words and film structure and is able to brilliantly and succinctly articulate a project (without run-on sentences like this one). Her work has certainly opened some funder's doors for my current film. And yes, she is fast and affordable.

Hi guys,

I work for film training organisation Initialize Films and I just wanted to let you know about two new (London-based) doumentary courses we're running in the new year:

Insider's Guide to... Making an Award-Winning Documentary:

This one-day guide is for documentary filmmakers and producers who want to understand how to develop, package, finance, direct and distribute an award-winning documentary.

The course will be led by filmmaker and producer Geoffrey Smith, who recently made THE ENGLISH SURGEON, which has been shown in over 40 international festivals, and has a theatrical release scheduled in the US, Spain and Poland. Geoffrey has also made several award-winning documentaries for the BBC and C4.

Karen, I've had the pleasure of meeting Geoffrey on various occasions, most notably in Kosovo, so I'd like to say that he's a very thoughtful and very honest guy and I'm sure his course will be great.

Hello All, and Merry Christmas:

I just wanted to introduce myself and get my name out there to this community. If anyone in the New York area is need of administrative, research, or production support as they gear up for new projects after the new year, please get in touch.

I am an aspiring producer looking for work as a production assistant. I have extensive documentary internship experience, a strong background in foreign affairs research and advocacy, and experience as an administrative assistant as well.

I am proficient with FCP and Photoshop, comfortable assisting on location, and used to being ask to do just about everything. An all around executer (with a sense of humor, of course)!

CURRENT RESUME ATTACHED.
