BASIC LEGAL ISSUES FOR DOCUMENTARY WEBINAR
Tuesday, June 1 2010, 7:00pm – 8:00pm
Eastern Standard Time (GMT- 5)

Unexpected legal issues can bring documentary production to a halt. The old adage, “The best defense is a good offense” rings true in filmmaking. This webinar with Entertainment and Media Attorney Laura Possessky will highlight the basic tools every producer needs to have in place to ward off legal woes. We will discuss when and how contracts, clearances and insurance may be used to effectively produce a documentary that is commercially viable and ready for distribution. The webinar will include a presentation and a 20 minute live phone Q&A.

This webinar is appropriate for anyone who is making their first independent documentary or for more experienced international filmmakers who want to understand basic legal issues for films in the United States. Since the webinar is conducted entirely online, all you need is Internet access at a computer with speakers or headphones at the time of the webinar and the ability to call in to a U.S. phone number via landline, cell phone, or Skype. There is no software to download.

More info and registration link at http://www.docsinprogress.org/index.php?option=com_events&task=view_detail&agid=68&jevtype=jevent&year=2010&month=06&day=01&Itemid=1

Registration open until 1 hour before webinar begins. This session will NOT be available on podcast so if it's of interest, try to catch the live webinar.

And if you're in the DC Metro area and prefer face-to-face workshops, Docs In Progress also has one coming up this Saturday:

AUDIO TECHNIQUES FOR DOCUMENTARY VIDEO
Getting good audio on location can make or break your documentary and save you countless hours of trying to “fix it in post.” This one day workshop from experienced sound recordist and instructor Michael Boyle will focus on production styles and audio requirements with an emphasis on small crew documentary shooting. Through a mix of lecture and hands-on activities, participants will gain knowledge of the operation and set-up of basic audio equipment. This workshop is recommended for producers, directors or anyone interested in upgrading your production sound knowledge. Prior audio experience is not required. More info and registration link at http://www.docsinprogress.org/index.php?option=com_events&task=view_detail&agid=66&jevtype=jevent&year=2010&month=06&day=05&Itemid=1

Producer for Documentary Feature

I am a theatrically released, PBS distributed filmmaker seeking an experienced New York City based producer to help create and launch a highly topical documentary about darkness, redemption and wisdom. In addition to professional producer skills, the candidate must have a proven trackrecord of fund raising for films and garnering financial support from corporations, foundations and philanthropists.

This is between a 12 to 18 month long project. Now in development, so far approximately 30% of the film has been shot, a solid treatment with promotional pieces has been created and locations selected. This is an ideal time to bring your talents, drive and vision to a very important work. This project has NYFA as a fiscal sponsor and the producer salary is generously budgeted.

Please send resume, links to your work and a cover letter with an emphasis on your fund raising successes to newdocnyc@gmail.com

Calling all documentary film lovers in the NYC area!!

I'd like to announce the Screening and World Premier of "THE MINUTEMEN" Movie at the Brooklyn International Film Festival. Next screening, this Thursday June 10th, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.

"The Minutemen" is a documentary about ten overly vigilant patriots who took it upon themselves to protect the Southern U.S. border from what they consider an "invasion" of Illegal Immigrants.

We follow these self-appointed watchdogs as they fight to regain their sovereignty as well as their own sanity in an isolated and dangerous landscape. Shot over the course of four years, the film examines the motivations of and relationships between these conflicted patriots.

With the new Arizona immigration law raising the public consciousness about border issues, "The Minutemen" Movie gives insight into the role citizen watchdogs play in influencing government policy.

SCREENING TIME:
10:00PM Thursday June 10th, 2010

LOCATION:
IndieScreen
285 Kent Ave. at S 2nd st
Williamsburg, Brooklyn 11211

UnionDocs Collaborative-Call For Entries

I’m writing to inform you of an opportunity for emerging documentary artists, called the UnionDocs Collaborative Program. The Brooklyn Rail recently pointed to the success of the first year of this program in an article titled, "UnionDocs Brings Autuers Together," http://www.brooklynrail.org/2010/04/local/uniondocs-brings-auteurs-together ,and we are are quite excited to be opening applications up for six new participants in 2010-2011.

The UnionDocs Collaborative is a one or two-year program; both a rigorous platform for exploring contemporary approaches to the documentary arts, and a process for developing an innovative group project. The program focuses on providing what we believe are the most effective educational resources for individuals at the beginning of their careers:

* Mentorship toward the production of an original work.

* Dynamic interaction among a network of talented peers.

* Direct contact and structured exchange with visiting artists.

* Exposure to a wide variety of practices and models.

* Regular group critique sessions.

* Exposure through a toured exhibition and/or publication of annual project.

The first iteration of this year’s UDC project, "Documenting Mythology,” premiered at Doc Fortnight 2010: The Museum of Modern Art's International Festival of Nonfiction Film, and will be presented in Boston next month by The Sensory Ethnography Lab at Harvard University. A wider international distribution effort and tour is planned for the coming fall.

The UDC has been set up to be affordable and scheduled for individuals who work full-time or freelance. UnionDocs is able to offer an intensive learning experience at a price that one might expect to pay for just a single credit at a university. Some residency options are available for individuals considering moving to the NYC. The application deadline is August 1st, 2010 and further details are available online: http://www.uniondocs.org/uniondocs-collaborative/

Thanks for your consideration,

Christopher Allen

DocuClub in July!

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

We will show a rough cut of THE LULU SESSIONS by S. Casper Wong. Raised in a small farm in Vermont, Dr. Louise Nutter, or LuLu, entered college at 15-years old, and by 29, was a star scientist invited to set up the first national cancer research center in Taiwan. The chain-smoking, hard-living, beloved professor has just discovered a new anti-cancer drug when she finds out she is dying of breast cancer herself at 42. Shot during the last 1.5 years of LuLu’s life, the film is a raw, intimate, yet surprisingly humorous story about the filmmaker showing up for her best friend, and together, testing the limits of their bond while taking on life’s ultimate adventure: death.

Director S. Casper Wong is a New York-based writer, director and producer of narrative and documentary films. Her narrative feature screenplay, OO1, a suspense drama, won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Screenplay at Urbanworld Film Festival and two Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Screenwriting Grants – at New York University and the Hamptons International Film Festival Screenwriter’s Lab. Her narrative short film, SHIRTS & SKINS, was awarded the Special Jury Prize at the Taipei Film Festival, and was licensed to The Independent Film Channel for a three-year run. It is now part of the Tribeca Film Institute’s curated Reframe Collection. She is currently in production on a feature documentary about East-West integrative medicine and the global health crisis. Prior to receiving her M.F.A. from New York University’s Graduate Film Program, Wong was Senior Counsel for IBM’s Western Region, based in San Francisco, and holds a B.S. in Bio-medical Engineering from Columbia University. THE LULU SESSIONS is her feature documentary debut.

Our moderator will be Howard Weinberg, who helps other filmmakers improve their films as a script-doctor. An award-winning independent documentary filmmaker, he educates and mentors students at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. His PBS documentary credits include SPORTS FOR SALE, FIRST THINGS FIRST, ONE PLUS ONE, and NET.LEARNING. An innovative television journalist, he was a Founding Producer of THE MACNEIL/LEHRER REPORT; Executive Producer of LISTENING TO AMERICA WITH BILL MOYERS; and a producer-writer for SUNDAY MORNING and SIXTY MINUTES, both on the CBS network. He also has taught at New York University and Dartmouth, and created a documentary film series at Columbia. The Daily News called the subject of his film SID AT 90, the “undisputed star” of the 2003 New York Jewish Film Festival. He is president of The New York Film/ Video Council, a non-profit serving the independent media community. His current major documentary project is TV LAB: LICENSE TO CREATE, an educational feature about an innovative era of public television from 1972-1984.

Admission is free for current DocuClub members and $6 for non-members.

Please RSVP at docuclub@artsengine.net [docuclub@artsengine.net].

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

In reply to Felix Endara's post on Fri 18 Jun 2010 :

I've been working with Casper on The LuLu Sessions as a consultant. All I can say is LuLu is one of the greatest documentary subjects I've ever seen on film. And the film reminds me a lot of Silverlake Life. You don't want to miss this.

Volunteers are truly appreciated. I can offer up to $50 for each camera person as a gratuity. Plus credit as "additional camera" when the film is completed.

I can tell you more about the sad, and yet exciting business of this day, when you tell me about your availability.

FIXER needed for SOUTH AMERICAN DOCUMENTARY

The Guarani Project is looking for a fixer/translator!

We are looking for a fixer/translator to join our team for a 5-6 week shoot from late July to early September in South America.

Think you’re up for the job, or know someone who is?

You must be FLUENT in Spanish, Portuguese AND English, and be based in Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay or Uruguay.

The job will be very hard work but amazing fun- think, travelling all night, one hour sleep and then interviewing the environment minister of Paraguay before heading off to interview displaced indigenous people and then spending the evening translating it all and discussing/planning the next day.

We are not so interested in finding the person with the most impressive CV but rather looking for someone who will fit the dynamic of the team- young, creative, intelligent and ambitious!

If you think you can do it, send an email to Annabel@theguaraniproject.com explaining you’d be good for the role.

We look forward to hearing from you!

The Guarani Team
