Anyone need a hand during production any time in the next month and a half? Camera, sound, lighting, I can do it all, and I have a PD-170 package if you need a 2nd camera (or first!). I am completely open, schedule wise, and would love to pick some gigs up! Just finished a nonfiction piece for Huggies as assistant story editor: www.pull-upspottyproject.com and here's a link to my camera work: www.kenfrenchmedia.com.
I appreciate the consideration!
EXPERIENCED, FAST AND ACCURATE TRANSCRIPTIONIST AVAILABLE.
Hi all. I am a NYC based independant documentary producer and editor trying to earn some extra cash from a very valuable asset. I am a Dragon Dictate voice transcription expert. This allows me to transcribe with perfect accurracy up to twice as fast as normal transcribers. This in turn allows me to offer better rates and turnaround times than nearly anyone else. Prices are negotiable based on project and I can provide excellent references.
Please contact email@example.com if you need anything transcribed.

I think you know my sister, Diana? Small world. If I hear of any NY-based folks who need transcription, I'll let you know....
A national competition seeking the best videos, photographs, and stories describing how individuals, families and communities are managing during these hard times.
One of the unexpected outcomes of the Great Depression was a decade of creative outpouring that covered the U.S. map. Under the auspices of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), thousands of artists fanned across the country documenting the experiences of everyday Americans as they worked to maintain their families, their communities, and their way of life in the face of a national economic crisis.
Now, as Americans are again experiencing financial hardship and uncertainty, First Person Arts invites artists to document how this generation of Americans is coping.
Inspired by the artists of the WPA, who documented the experiences of Americans in every part of the country, First Person Arts is asking artists to help craft the first draft of the history of our era by capturing, in photographs, on video, or in writing, the stories of America and its people during these difficult times.
Our goal is to gather stories from all 50 states.
We are looking for short memoirs and essays, documentary films, and photographs that depict Americans from all walks of life. We are especially interested in stories that are unique to your family, your community, your town, your region – that capture the idiosyncratic things that are happening where you live – the slices of life that, taken together, will give us a First Person picture of America in 2009 – the good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful.
Writing submissions – up to 2,500 words.
Film and video submissions – up to five minutes, excluding credits.
Photography submissions – may include up to five photographs, with or without accompanying text of up to 100 words per image.
Submission deadline: June 30, 2009
Finalists in each category (writing, film, and photography) will be featured on the First Person Arts website (www.firstpersonarts.org) and at the First Person Festival of Memoir and Documentary Art, November 4-8, 2009. First place winners in each genre will be invited to Philadelphia to participate in the festival. A cash prize will be awarded to the best story overall.

I do know your sister! In fact I went to prom with her all those years ago and just last year she helped me and our friends win the Coney Island Sand Sculpture contest. How funny! Definitely email me. I was actually going to email you after I found out you worked on IOUSA because I've been working as an associate producer and assisstant editor for a company doing a doc on the financial crisis.
Great to see you here!
Sounds good--definitely e-mail me.
To everyone else-especially in LA-do you know of anyone seeking a feature editor? I've got a couple of things that have been up in the air for a while, and need to nail something down.
Our documentary UPSTREAM BATTLE is playing at DOXA in Vancouver B.C. this Saturday at 12:30pm.
A coalition of Native Americans battle to force the removal of dams owned by billionaire Warren Buffett that have devastated the salmon population on California's Klamath River. The hydro-power dams contributed to one of the worst fish die-offs in U.S. history and continue to turn the water into a toxic soup. 'If the fish are sick, we're sick,' says Merv George of the Hoopa Tribe. To rescue their river and save their culture, Merv and his combatants first travel to Scotland, then to the richest man in the United States. The dam owners praise hydro power as a low-cost, climate-friendly source of energy, a valuable resource they say they couldn't afford to lose. Yet, the tribes may soon trigger the largest dam removal project in history.
The film has been shown at more than 25 festivals, including the Toronto International Film Festival. It won a Human Rights Award, Best Environmental Film, and most recently, the EarthVision Grand Jury Prize in Santa Cruz.
