DocuClub in September!

Our September DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, September 30, 7 p.m., at DCTV [www.dctvny.org], located at 87 Lafayette Street (at Walker; take N/R/Q/6 trains to Canal).

Our moderator will be Merrill Sterritt, Production Assistance Program Coordinator at Women Make Movies, the leading distributor of films directed by and about women. WMM’s Production Assistance Program works with emerging and established independent filmmakers to produce and complete their films through its workshop series, resources and newsletters, and fiscal sponsorship of projects directed by women. Sterritt is in charge of the operations of the P.A. Program, managing the workshop series, and working with 200+ fiscally sponsored filmmakers on all aspects of their projects. She also works as an editor, with films that have premiered at Sundance and the Palm Springs International Film Festival.

We will screen "Caris’ Peace" co-directed by Gaylen Ross and Rebecca Nelson and produced by Steve Skrovan. The documentary profiles theatre and film actress and Yale graduate Caris Corfman, whose life and career were altered with the removal of a brain tumor that left her without short-term memory Corfman was once an actress whose talent presumed a lifetime career, whether starring opposite Ian Holm in the dramatic film "Dreamland" or in the original Broadway cast of "Amadeus" with Ian McKellen and Tim Curry. Now she can’t remember a line of dialogue, a stage direction, or an entrance or exit cue – the very foundation of her profession. The simplest dance step or lyric of a song eludes her, though she trained in dance and music since childhood. The documentary depicts Corfman’s resolute effort to reclaim her life in theater and return to the world that she loved. It is a personal, real life story crafted as a unique hybrid of verite, interview, and performance, and includes Corfman’s
friends and colleagues, such as actors Lewis Black, Kate Burton, Tony Shaloub, and playwright and producer Eric Overmyer.

Gaylen Ross has directed and written award-winning documentary films that have received national and international broadcast and exhibition. Her documentary film "Dealers Among Dealers" debuted on P.O.V. and she also wrote and produced the Emmy award winning "Blood Money: Switzerland's Nazi Gold." Her new documentary, "Killing Kasztner," which premiered at last year’s Toronto Film Festival, will have its New York opening in October.

Rebecca Nelson is an actress, director and teacher. As an actress, her work spans three decades in theatre, television and film. Notable are her roles in films, including Hal Hartley’s "Trust," "Surviving Desire," and "Henry Fool." She is a friend and colleague of Caris Corfman, having met as students at the Yale School of Drama.

Steve Skrovan’s first documentary feature, "An Unreasonable Man" was a profile of Ralph Nader. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Skrovan has worked as a stand-up comedian and television comedy writer, most notably, for "Seinfeld" and "Everybody Loves Raymond," where he was also an executive producer. He is now a consulting producer on Kelsey Grammer’s new television comedy, "Hank," and just completed directing his first narrative feature film, "Fred and Vinny."

Andrew Ford is a film editor and producer specializing in multi-award winning long form documentaries and narrative features. Recent credits include "The Last Kiddie Ride" (James Gandolfini and Famke Janssen, to be released 2010), "A Walk to Beautiful" (Emmy nomination 2009 and released theatrically 2008 and broadcast on Nova) and with Gaylen Ross, "Killing Kasztner." Ford edited "Until the Light Takes Us," on black metal music in Norway, which will be opening in New York this Fall.
Admission is free for current DocuClub members and $5 for non-members.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to: docuclub@artsengine.net.

Membership is an annual $50 and it includes free admission to all DocuClub events. It takes five minutes to join online:

Host a House Party for the TV premiere of A SEA CHANGE

WHEN: Saturday, Sept. 26, 8 pm EST
WHERE: Your house & Planet Green Network
SIGN- UP: On our Brave New Theaters page: http://aseachange.bravenewtheaters.com/

“This film is both a love letter to the planet and an urgent plea to its citizens.”—San Francisco Chronicle

A SEA CHANGE premiers on Sept. 26 on Planet Green, 8 pm EST. It’s the first film about the evil twin of climate change, ocean acidification.

Will you help make a HUGE SPLASH and let everyone in the US know about the threat excess carbon dioxide poses to ocean life?

If you have cable or satellite TV, please INVITE FRIENDS or FAMILY over to watch with you, discuss, and take action.

"Just go to A SEA CHANGE on Brave New Theaters to host your own party": http://aseachange.bravenewtheaters.com/ . Your party can be public or private, just as you choose.

*BONUS* If you’re hosting a house party on Sept. 26 to watch A Sea Change on Planet Green , we’ll send you a FREE DVD to say THANKS for helping get out the word out about climate change and the ocean!

Let’s get ocean lovers and climate change activists working together for a FAIR, AMBITIOUS and BINDING (FAB) climate treaty in December! And finish off Climate Week NYC with a TSUNAMI of action!

“A Sea Change could not be more timely. I believe acidification of our oceans is actually a greater threat to our survival than is temperature or sea level rise, the conventional “global warming” threats. Acidification is confusing and difficult to even imagine for most people—we need your film.”
—Rob Moir, Ph.D., OceanRiver Institute

Hello to all. Simon Kilmurry, the executive producer of P.O.V. (Point of View) saw something I posted on one of their blogs about documentary websites and suggested I come to this site to post something.

I'm just getting started in web design and have done only author websites. However, I'm a huge documentary enthusiast and it only occured to me after seeing P.O.V.'s blog that there is a way that I could help support the making of documentaries.

If anyone is in need of a website for their documentary, please feel free to contact me. I'm willing to do it at very little cost simply because I love documentaries so much and want to help.

My designs are very clean, simple, well-organized, yet stylish. I don't do anything too fancy like flash and the like, but if anyone is in need of a simple straight-forward website, I can help with that. I don't have anything to link to right now because I'm in the midst of redesigning a couple of websites I've done, but I can always email screenshots of those if you're interested.

I'm in school full-time right now and have a couple of websites on my plate currently, but I could be available in December to take on another project.

Here is my email address if you'd like to contact me: plainbellysneetch@gmail.com.

~ Amanda

Hey everyone! Screenwriters are free to dream up plot twists for a three-act story, but we documentary filmmakers must design scenes based on what was actually filmed in real life. These two constraints–“what was filmed” and “real life”--present special challenges. Whether a documentary editor is using a three-act storyboard or some other narrative design, how does she stay true to actual happenings when she must persuade and contort them into climaxes and plot turns?

I’m teaching my popular weekend seminar, “Structuring the Character-Driven Documentary,” on October 10 and 11 at the San Francisco Film Society. This class will outline the principles of classic three-act narrative structure as taught by professional screenwriters, and we’ll learn how documentary filmmakers can adapt these structural demands to the randomness of real life.

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone out there might be interested in coming out to
South India to help me with a doc that I'm developing/ shooting on the
international eco/ spiritual community of Auroville. I'll be here for
the next 1-2 years and would be interested in working closely with
someone who is good with ideas and people. I can't really offer much
in the way of payment..... I'll rent the house and keep it running.
I'll be in Montreal for late November in the event that anyone is
interested in meeting up to discuss and explore options.

Vivian Norris de Montaigu, a producer based in Paris, has contacted me to help her find a good videographer in the Washington / Baltimore area to shoot one or two interviews on October 22nd or 23rd. It's in conjunction with a documentary about Pres. Obama's mother. My usual people are all booked; can anyone give me some leads? I don't know Dr. Norris de Montaigu personally, but she comes highly recommended by a friend in the area of microfinance, a subject that I've dealt with a lot. She's also developing a feature film based on the life and work of Muhammad Yunus of Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2006 and someone I've also worked with a great deal. She wants to shoot in high def, and would rely on the camera person to arrange for equipment and quite possibly also a sound recordist. Here's a link with info about Norris de Montaigu:

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for any recommendations that people might have for an experienced editor. Of course, people are welcome to apply to the email below but it would be great if anyone had advice and suggestions. (This is a paid position by the way). Here's the spec;

We are looking for a talented editor for a feature length foreign documentary with a strong narrative. You need to have solid experience in character development and story structure.

Editing will begin in either December or January and ideally, you will be able to travel abroad to edit, but this is not a deal breaker (flight and accommodation will be covered)

You should be skilled in editing in Final Cut, have a quality reel with broadcast credits and references that can be checked.

We also want to produce a trailer.

For full details contact us at editor@chivitmai.com
