My friend (and D-Worder) Joanne Nerenberg is desperately looking to for a laptop with Final Cut on it to borrow for the day this Thursday, Dec 2. It's to finalize and play back a video she's preparing for a huge benefit for Groundswell in Brooklyn.

It's for a great cause. Groundswell is dedicated to using art as a tool for social change by bringing together professional artists, community organizations, and youth to collaboratively create public art projects in communities across the city.

If you can help out, get in touch with Joanne directly: jojonerenberg@msn.com

ATTENTION EDITORS
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

The KAREN SCHMEER FILM EDITING FELLOWSHIP deadline is fast approaching: December 15, 2010.

The fellowship was created to honor the memory of gifted editor, Karen Schmeer ("Fast, Cheap, and Out of Control," "Fog of War," "Sergio"), who was killed in a car accident on January 29, 2010.

Karen always talked about how editors needed more recognition and support; the year-long fellowship will support the talents of an emerging editor while offering a tribute to Karen’s artistic achievements and her giving spirit.

The experience will include: a mentorship with an ACE (American Cinema Editors) editor, a class at the Manhattan Edit Workshop, festival passes to ACE EditFest in LA and NY, a SXSW Film Festival Badge, an Independent Film Festival of Boston Festival Chrome Pass, a gift certificate to Powell's books (Karen's favorite), a year-long membership to NY's DocuClub, and more.

Fellowship details, the application, and a bio of Karen are all here:

http://www.karenschmeer.com/

We're also making in the middle of a big fundraising push to ensure the longevity of the fellowship. A matching $25,000 grant is doubling all donations made before December 31, 2010 (up to $25,000). All donations are tax-deductible. We've already raised $14,000... we've got $11,000 to go! Can you help us reach our financial goal? We thank you. And emerging editors thank you.

(Berkeley, CA.) –Heist, a feature length documentary film exposing the origins and perpetrators behind the current economic crisis devastating the American working class has won the Roy W. Dean Film and Video Grant for 2011, which will provide Heist with $50,000 of in-kind production services.

Heist tells the hidden story of the systemic, multifaceted attack that, starting in the 1970s, transformed America’s well-regulated economy into a battlefield littered with foreclosed homes, runaway jobs, and broken dreams. The film draws on the best thinkers and grassroots activists to show how with ingenuity, fairness, and commitment, America can recover prosperity for all. Heist will be released in 2011.

FAHRVERGNüGEN!

Looking for a DP to shoot the last leg of the feature-length documentary on Volkswagen, Circle the Wagen.

EIGHT-DAY ROADTRIP from Los Angeles to Tucumcari, NM and back to take place between January 8th and 16th.

You will be following a ramshackle 1972 bus, it’s adventuresome owner, and willing best friend in their final attempt to save this bus from the scrap heap.

While the job does NOT PAY, all expenses will be provided for.

Adventure includes: the historic sights of Route 66; the Grand Canyon; Busses by the Bridge (an annual air-cooled Volkswagen campout and auto show) at Lake Havasu; and a climactic sunset finish on Santa Monica Pier – the West Coast terminus of Route 66. All of which will look gorgeous on your reel. Mucho margaritas will be consumed, along with at least one round of shots – once we’ve shot our martini.

Please refer to our website where you can see a short as well as an extended trailer of our film: www.circlethewagen.com

Sound up your alley? Contact director Ryan Green at ryan@circlethewagen.com. Please include a cover letter describing production experience that included travel, as well as a link to your documentary reel.

Hi D-Word,

I am seeking triple-threats – producer/shooter/editors – in Israel (ideally Tel Aviv), London, and Chennai, India. If not triple-threats, ideally a very strong producer/shooter who can build a team. Etsy.com is expanding its video program to include documentary and stylized shorts; I'm looking for filmmakers needing / wanting / open to projects that allow them to creatively stretch their wings.

Etsy stories average about 3 – 5 minutes in length and for the most part, bring the sellers on the site — and their objects — to life. Currently, we feature three main video series: Handmade Portraits, which profile those Etsy sellers; There's No Place Like Here, which feature the interiors of collection-filled homes; and Process, where the methods tell the story. The videos live on the etsy.com's blog.

We're shooting for high values – on the Canon 5D and 7D – but are open to other HDSLRs. Editing tends to happen in Final Cut Pro, but we've been able to work with freelancers who use other systems..

I've posted once before but am trying again – with these specific locations (others may contact me!) interested, please e-mail me yoru info. Thank you! And/or spread this around!

All best,

DocuClub in January!

Our January DocuClub will take place on THURSDAY, JANUARY 13, 7 p.m., at 92YTribeca, located at 200 Hudson (at Canal). (We had previously announced a January 12 date, but please make note of this change.)

This month, we are excited to workshop two short documentary films: AN IMAGINARY THING by Reva Goldberg and SONNY by Christina Antonakos-Wallace.

Reva Goldberg's AN IMAGINARY THING is an intimate portrait of passionate children’s theater director Bill Bartlett and his unique gift for unlocking the creativity of troubled kids. An independent educator outside the New York City school system, Bill believes meaningful experiences in the performing arts are critical for children in crisis – encouraging their natural impulses towards creativity, community and self-expression when they might otherwise be snuffed out forever. The short follows Bill over the course of one summer when he is invited to put on an original play, by and for kids, in a prestigious theater festival. He is determined to include some children he has worked with in homeless shelters in his cast, but this goal forces him to face profound personal and professional challenges.

Director/Producer Reva Goldberg is, by day, the Communications and Fellowships Manager at Cinereach, a New York City not-for-profit film foundation and production company that champions vital stories, artfully told. There she handles all public communications, as well as serving on the grants selection committee, and heading up a fellowship program that provides a grant and four months of advising to emerging filmmakers producing socially conscious short films. Before joining Cinereach, she was a producer at Pureland Pictures where she produced the documentary ALL OF US, which aired on Showtime in 2008 in connection with World AIDS Day. Goldberg also co-produced Pureland’s TOE TO TOE, a narrative feature that premiered at Sundance 2009. In 2004, she was Associate Producer of an Emmy-nominated History Channel documentary on the 9/11 Commission (produced by CBS). She has worked with TLC, UPN, Discovery, The Travel Channel, Washington Square Films/Arts, Cronkite Productions and the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. She is a graduate of the SI Newhouse School at Syracuse University. AN IMAGINARY THING is Reva’s first independent documentary as both Producer and Director.

Co-Producer Kacie Barton is the in-house coordinator and live action specialist at Imaginary Forces, a design/commercial production house based in New York and Los Angeles. Prior to this, she has worn many hats, from Production Manager to Second Second Assistant Director on the films TOE TO TOE, A KISS FOR JED WOOD, and TODAY'S SPECIAL, among others. She has directed and produced music videos and other promotional pieces for bands and artists and her work has been featured on MTV.com. She was a production and office manager at Pureland Pictures, where she managed grantwriting and distribution for the company’s social-issue documentaries, including ALL OF US. She is a graduate of the SI Newhouse School at Syracuse University.

In SONNY (working title) by Christina Antonakos-Wallace, we meet Sonny Singh, a Brooklyn-based activist and full-time musician who hopes to be "the first dude in a turban” on MTV. His dream changes, however, when his poised-for-success rock band insists on recording lyrics insulting religious people. Growing up in Charlotte, North Carolina, Sonny and his brother were the only Sikh boys, and he has faced discrimination his whole life. Because his Sikh faith is intimately tied to his musical path and work for social justice, Sonny feels he has no choice but to quit the band. In figuring out his next move, he decides to work as an organizer for the Sikh Coalition. Heading an anti-bullying campaign in New York City schools, he tries to help combat the bigotry he experienced as a young person. Still, working in his own community presents new challenges, and Sonny will have to come to terms with whether or not he can pursue a music career that won’t betray his ideals.

Director/Producer Christina Antonakos-Wallace is a documentary filmmaker and activist based in Brooklyn, NY. In 2006, she graduated at the top of her class at the New School and Parsons School of Design with a B.F.A. in Fine Arts and Video, and a B.A. in Sociology. Her honors include MTV’s "Fight for Your Rights" scholarship and a Fellowship from Humanity in Action. Her varied experiences include assisting filmmaker Barbara Hammer, and interning with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, in Berlin. Currently, she produces videos for NGOs, and teaches media literacy and video production to high school students with the organization Global Action Project. SONNY is a short film featuring one of the protagonists of her feature documentary, WITH WINGS AND ROOTS, currently in production.

Demonstrating enormous talent and stamina, Cheree Dillon is the Editor for both of our featured shorts. Dillon’s most recent feature documentary is Nicole Opper’s OFF AND RUNNING, a co-production of ITVS and The National Black Programming Consortium. The film premiered at Tribeca in 2009 and went on to screen at Silverdocs (WGA Screenplay Award), Outfest (Jury Prize for Outstanding Documentary), and was broadcast on PBS’s P.O.V. in 2010. Dillon began her career as a commercial editor in Chicago and her first foray into short films was editing LESSONS FOR GIRLS, which premiered on The Education Channel and also played at Belgium’s International Film Festival. Since moving to New York, she has edited social issue documentaries for a variety of non-profits including V.O.W. (Voices of Women of Color with HIV/AIDS), Passionists of Harlem, New York Women’s HIV Collaborative, and The American Jewish World Service, along with teaching youth media classes around the city. She was Editor/Producer of SONG OF HANNAH, distributed by The National Center for Jewish Film and Avoda Arts. She also edited the award-winning short comedy HIS SONG IS COSMO, which ran in festivals around the world and won three audience awards for Best Short. Her other broadcast experience includes editing for NBC’s The Today Show, The Science Channel’s Exploring Time, PBS’s History Detectives, and other works for the Discovery Channel, HBO, HGTV, and NYC-TV.

Our moderator will be Angela Tucker. A Brooklyn based filmmaker and writer, Tucker was the Director of Production at Big Mouth Films, a social issue documentary production company that is a project of Arts Engine, Inc. There, she produced PUSHING THE ELEPHANT (IDFA, Independent Lens), the Emmy-nominated documentary, DEADLINE (NBC), ELECTION DAY (PBS' POV) and BEYOND THE STEPS: ALVIN AILEY AMERICAN DANCE THEATER (Great Performances). She directed two pieces for The National Black Programming Consortium and ITVS' Initiative, The Masculinity Project, entitled INVISIBLE MEN and a fiction short film, THE BIRTHDAY GIRL. She directs and produces educational videos for non-profit organizations such as Johns Hopkins Medical Center’s Project Restore and GLSEN, in addition to producing spots for Nickelodeon. She is currently finishing her feature-length directorial debut, (A)SEXUAL, which was featured in last month's DocuClub.

Admission at 92YTribeca is free for current DocuClub members and $8 for non-members.

If you’re planning 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:

DC-area folks...

The first Docs In Progress screening of the new year is less than 2 weeks away. Come join us on Tuesday, January 25 to watch two documentary rough cuts and participate in a moderated feedback session. This honest and constructive feedback is aimed at helping the filmmakers get to the next stage of completing and distributing the film. This program is open to the general public.

WHAT'S SCREENING?

HIDDEN BOOKS by Sam Hampton (30 minute rough cut)
This portrait piece of Kumi Korf explores the lifeforce which inspires art. The Japanese-American artist creates architectural designs, prints, paintings, and artist books which are held by the Library of Congress, the New York Public Library, and the Tate Library, among others. We travel with Korf from her home in Ithaca, New York to her homeland of Japan as we explore the inner life of an artist.

THE LOUDEST SHOW ON EARTH by Mariana Studart (30 minute rough cut)
Giba Gonçalves has built up the Batala Percussion Band from one of the poorest neighborhoods of Salvador, Brazil to a worldwide organization with more than 1,000 drummers in 10 different countries. Regardless of age, gender, nationality, or language, the band plays as one – united by the universal language of music.

DocuClub in February!

Our February DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, February 2, 7 p.m., at DCTV, located at

This month, we will screen a rough cut of ONE NIGHT STAND by Elisabeth Sperling and Trish Dalton. The documentary is an intimate, behind-the-scenes journey from the blank page to the live stage, as top Broadway and television writers, actors, and directors produce four original short musicals, all within 24 hours. Think "A Chorus Line" meets "Project Runway" – a window into the creative process with a compressed time frame: the spark, the anxiety, the camaraderie, and the ultimate thrill of expression.

Producer/Director Elisabeth Sperling worked as a producer and writer for Maysles Films from 2005 to 2007. Her work includes HEAD BOY, an exploration of racial boundaries in small-town post-apartheid South Africa; BREAKTHROUGH NEW YORK, a promotional video about an academic enrichment program in New York City; INDIAN VILLAGE, a chronicle of an American family’s visit to their home village in India; and SOMEBODY LOVES ME, a portrait of the Upper West Side’s unique personality. She has a B.A. from Harvard, an M.A. from Columbia, held an endowed chair in the history department at the Horace Mann School, and was awarded Fulbright and Klingenstein Fellowships.

Producer/Director Trish Dalton is an independent producer and filmmaker. Her film credits include KERAS & MANIS (editor; Gold Kahuna from Honolulu IFF, Best Editing Award from Los Angeles Reel FF 2010), WHY ARE WE IN AFGHANISTAN? (producer/editor; Studs Terkel Award for Media and Journalism 2010), 34x25x36 (co-producer; aired on PBS, and was selected by many festivals, including: SXSW, Full Frame, and True/False 2008/2009), FARM SANCTUARY (co-director/co-producer; Media that Matters 'Good Food' award 2007), and TIFFANY'S STORY (director/producer; Tribeca Film Festival 2005). Dalton has also directed and produced a range of pieces for companies such as Amazon, Kashi, Danskin, Pepsi, and National Geographic television.

Our moderator will be Ann Rose, executive producer of original programming at Sundance Channel. She joined the channel in 2004, and since then has overseen critically-acclaimed and crowd-pleasing non-fiction series including the GLAAD award-winner TRANSGENERATION, SIN CITY LAW (from the Oscar-winning producers of THE STAIRCASE), and GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS. She has also pre-licensed and executive-produced numerous documentaries for the channel such as GUEST OF CINDY SHERMAN, BEAUTIFUL DARLING, PRODIGAL SONS, and JOHNNY WEIR: POP STAR ON ICE. As an independent filmmaker, she worked on documentaries and TV series for a variety of broadcasters including HBO, PBS, BBC, ARTE, Fox, and USA Network, and directed and produced two short films, LICENSE TO PLAY and BO: THE I CHING AND THE FALL OF THE TWIN TOWERS.

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

If you’re planning 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:

Hey all,

If anyone is looking for an extra hand with putting together their documentary in the New York City area, I would be interested. I am new to the documentary film-making world, and would like to learn more through hands-on experience. I am willing to work for free, and ideally would like to work with a crew that likes to share knowledge about the art and craft of making documentaries.

I am currently working on my first documentary myself, on subway musicians, and I am really loving the experience so far.

If you are in need of help, or know of someone in need of help with their documentary, and are filming in the NYC area please contact me as I would love to help out!

Registration $100, Students $50.

DOCUMENTARY DIRECTOR Seeks Producing Partner and Highly Motivated Intern

I am directing a personal film on manhood in the 21st century called MY OWN MAN, shot on super- 16mm film, which was part of IFP’s Independent Film Week 2010 (for a more detailed description of the film and me, see www.myownmanthemovie.com). I have been shooting it over the last three years, and though I’m still in production, I am nearing the phase where I will begin working with an editor to shape the footage into a film.
