Good to be here :) I am new to this site. Actually I am a Telecom Professional.. I am interested in documentaries and in fact I want to share and ask something -
I have a fresh new idea for a documentary and wanna share the script with an interested documentary maker or production house..
Can someone tell me who/which company can I contact..
Please help me guys :)
what role do you want to play with your film? are you wanting to direct it? produce? just see it get done?
One more week to go for DOCUWEEKS in New York and LA. There are some really great films playing that y'all should go and see. This week in NY you can catch MY PERESTROIKA by D-Word's own Robin Hessman, as well as WASTE LAND (Lucy Walker) and BUDRUS (Julia Bacha) in NY. Just some of my favorites. Have also heard amazing things about FREEDOM RIDERS.
In LA, you can see STEAM OF LIFE, in which naked Norwegian men discuss life in saunas (believe me, it's amazing), SUMMER PASTURE, in which you can witness up close remote rural life in the mountains of Tibet and learn about the value of yak milk as a moisturizer, and you can see THIS WAY OF LIFE, which I highly recommend for all phobic parents. This New Zealand family lives by a whole different set of rules, and it's an eye opening opportunity to examine how parenting is approached in this country.
These are just some of the highlights of a really great crop of films. And as we all know, unless we ourselves get our butts into theaters to support our fellow docmakers, how can we expect others to do the same?
I highly recommend a visit to the Arclight in LA or the IFC Center in NY. It's like taking a vacation without every leaving home.
Sort of an off topic request, but I am looking for a wedding photographer for October 10th, 2010. Its ideally suited for someone who is just starting out as the payment we have is $500. The location is the beautiful bucolic Catskill Mountains but we would pay for transportation from NYC or surrounding areas.
If you are interested (or know someone who is) please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

The position is unpaid, but we’ll cover transportation and working meals. School credit, general mentorship/advice, and credit on the final film will certainly be provided to excellent interns. The ideal candidate will be: bright, enthusiastic, self-motivated, and patient, – very attentive to detail, interested in the editorial process and documentary filmmaking – able to give 10-20 hours per week to the project (schedule flexible, open to discussion). Photoshop experience a plus.

Hello, all. I've been booked for a one week gig. It's kind of an exploratory shoot, and the producer doesn't have a big budget. We need to rent a Panasonic HPX170 or HMC150 at a reasonable rate.
We can get a package from Abel for $1000, but hoping to spend half that.
We'll be leaving NY Sunday morning and returning the following Sunday.
If anybody has one available, let me know ASAP. We'd like to sort this out this afternoon.
I'm a documentary story consultant who teaches at the top U.S. documentary program at UC Berkeley.
I'm offering a new, 6-month coaching circle for 5 committed documentary filmmakers. You'll get detailed critiques on 3 cuts, advice for structuring your film, peer support and eight virtual teleseminars.
You can live anywhere in the world to participate.

This program is perfect for filmmakers needing help structuring an engaging documentary. I use innovative techniques for crafting films that are as compelling as narrative films. The cost is half the price of my story consulting services for a similar amount of time.
