i wouldn't say that, kaitlin. people who have met me often tell me how much smarter i seem in my picture... and those are my good friends!

but it just seems like this job was "perfect" for so many of us in the filmmaking world – on the cutting edge of distribution, being able to work from home, and having a relatively stable income. oh well... back to making films and eating ramen noodles.

lol Chris. Having never met you, and only seen your picture. I always thought you were a brainiac. Thanks for the warning about the let down.

Hello everyone!

I will be going out of town from April 24 – May 9, and am looking to sublet my studio, located in central Brooklyn Heights. It's spacious (600 sq ft), with a gorgeous view of the East River, Bridges, and entire skyline from its balcony. It is located in a doorman building with a great courtyard, near many subway lines (2/3, A/C, R, F, 4,5,6) and near the Brooklyn Promenade, too. 700$ includes internet, cable, electricity, AC, the works.

I priced the rent a little lower because of the following – I have two cats that I need to be looked after. So... if you're looking at this posting, you should probably be okay with the felines :) They're a great pair, no health probs or anything like that. Fun and cute!

Email me at mariahewilson@gmail.com if interested! Feel free to pass on to anyone you know.

DC-area folks, it's high time for another Docs In Progress Work in Progress screening, don't you think? Join us this Friday night.

Docs In Progress is back with a triple feature of works-in-progress in Washington DC. The program is sponsored by The Documentary Center at The George Washington University.

Following a screening of each film, the audience will be invited to participate in a feedback session with the filmmakers to help them get to the next stage of completing their films.

WHAT'S SCREENING?

JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF ARTOMATIC (3 minute trailer)
by Jay Krasnow
Artomatic began with 350 visual artists a decade ago and has grown into a Washington institution which attracts more than 1,000 artists, musicians, comedians, poets, and filmmakers and is a model for grassroots arts festivals.

LIFE ON DEATH BEACH (7 minute segment)
by Jeff Arak
A coastal town in Oaxaca is a microcosm of struggles for recognition within Mexican society, as told from a group of volunteer lifeguards or the patients and therapists at a center working to rehabilitate people with disabilities.

FORGOTTEN SOLDIERS (80 minute rough cut)
by Donald Plata
Considered one of the most elite groups of the U.S. army during the Second World War, the Phillipine Scouts were credited with one of the greatest success stories for the Allies in the Pacific – keeping Japan from invading Australia. Although they fought America's first major ground battle of the war, their story remains largely unknown.

As I said elsewhere, Morrie is the very best at what he does. He simply knows his stuff, and there's a lot to know. It's really worth going.

We're looking for an inexpensive (re: really CHEAP) video screening room in NYC – any ideas out there? Say around 70 seats, project HDCAM or Digibeta, an early evening in May, during the week? We've looked at DCTV, 92ndSty Tribeca, Bowery Poets . . . thanks!
