You might try contacting Paul Tomasko. He has serviced Steenbecks for many years, in fact, still does. I know he has several Steenbecks and related equipment. He may have a trim bin. Tell him Lynn Cassaniti sent you.

I am a Swedish filmmaker looking for anyone in New York City whom may have a PAL HDV video camera that I may use for "logging and Capturing" . My HDR-FX-7 PAL video camera just broke down in the middle of logging. I am on a deadline and desperately need to continue. Unfortunately I am all set up for working on a PAL system. I am obviously on the wrong continent ..I know!
I could also, instead use a tape-transfer-deck (but it has to be for PAL). Is there anyone out there in NYC that is working with the PAL system?
I would love to connect.
I will of course pay to rent the equipment and I would need it only for one week.
Many thanks.

We will pre-select four projects. The night of the event, we will chose at random a fifth project to be workshopped, so if your project was not pre-selected, do bring your trailer on DVD. You might just get lucky! (Rules above still apply, however.)

Our moderator will be Fernanda Rossi. Internationally-renowned speaker and story consultant Fernanda Rossi doctored over 300 films, including Academy Award nominees® The Garden, by Scott Hamilton Kennedy, and Recycled Life by Leslie Iwerks.

Follow young explorer James Graham of Anacostia as he uncovers the hidden lives of urban wildlife, and what their increasing presence in our backyards means for environmental education.

FLAHERTY NYC VALENTINE'S DAY SHORT FILMS SCREENING at Anthology Film Archives (New York City)

A Show for Valentine’s Day, A Collection Of Nine Love Inspired Shorts
Monday, February 14, 7:30pm
Anthology Film Archives
http://www.flahertyseminar.org/?sb=3&mb=1

For the February installment of the Flaherty NYC monthly screening series, The Flaherty will present A Show for Valentine’s Day, A Collection Of Nine Love Inspired Shorts. There will be a post-screening discussion with various filmmakers, moderated by Flaherty NYC programmer Penny Lane, an independent filmmaker, video artist, educator and writer.

Romantic longings and romantic realities collide in this heartwarming and heartbreaking program of films and videos by Jodie Mack, Jacqueline Goss, Peggy Ahwesh, Bradley Eros, Matt McCormick, Ben Coonley, Alison Kobayashi and more. Who said experimental nonfiction was all brain and no heart? Several filmmakers in attendance!

FILMS INCLUDE:

HONEYMOON HOTEL (Tony Ganz and Rhody Streeter, 1971, 4 min)
This humorous short film features interviews with newlyweds staying in an outrageously furnished hotel in America's honeymoon resort capital, The Poconos.

SINCERELY, JOE P. BEAR (Matt McCormick, 1999, 4 min)
A love letter from a heartbroken polar bear.

FROM ALEX TO ALEX (Alison Kobayashi, 2006, 6 mins)
In the fall of 2003 I found a letter on the Winston Churchill Blvd QEW overpass. It was labeled, “From: Alex To: Alex.” This is a film based on the contents of that letter.

EROS C'EST LAMOUR (Bradley Eros and Tim Geraghty, 2008, 8 min)
Dorothy's l'amour fou evoked in evanescent fragments unexpectedly encountered. The missing link between Rose Hobart and Maria Montez via Rrose Selavy's bride stripped bare by the song of the sarong.

SYNCHRONIZED FOUNTAIN #2, DUBAI (Peggy Ahwesh, 2010, 3 min)
This is footage of the famous fountain at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai that I shot in April, 2010 when I was there for the art fair. The song is Amvaj (Waves) by Bijan Mortazavi. I made it as a wedding gift for Penny Lane and Brian Frye.

VALENTINE FOR PERFECT STRANGERS (Ben Coonley, 2006, 4 min)
A romantic e-card from Otto, a feral cat seeking love from a stranger on the Internet. Otto edits himself into clips from the 1980’s sitcom Perfect Strangers and asks strangers on YouTube to return the favor.

TYING THE KNOT (Jacqueline Goss, 2010, 2 min)
More risqué than it seems at first, a short ode to marriage.

YARD WORK IS HARD WORK (Jodie Mack, 2008, 28 min)
An experimental animation and mini-musical that wants also to be a romantic comedy. Using various combinations of 2D cut-out and pixilation, the piece follows a pair of newlyweds as they learn the perils of homeownership and life in general.

PEOPLE IN ORDER OF #3: LOVE (Lenka Clayton and James Price, 2006, 3 min)
48 couples arranged by length of relationship. From a series of films about human lives shot while touring the UK in a camper van.

TICKET INFORMATION:
………………………………………………………………………………………………
General admission tickets to the Flaherty NYC series at the Anthology Film Archives are $9, and $6 for Anthology members. Tickets can be purchased at the Anthology box office the day of the show.

Anthology Film Archives is located in the old Second Avenue Courthouse building in the East Village at 32 Second Ave. at the corner of 2nd Street. For subway take F, V to Second Ave., B, D, F, V to Broadway-Lafayette, 6 to Bleecker.

Nostalgia For the Light
Friday 3/18/11-Thursday 3/31/11
IFC Center

Master director Patricio Guzmán travels 10,000 feet above sea level to the driest desert on earth for this remarkable documentary. Here, the sky is so translucent that it allows astronomers to see the boundaries of our universe. Yet the Atacama Desert climate also keeps human remains intact: pre-Columbian mummies; explorers and miners; and the
remains of disappeared political prisoners. Women sift the desert soil for the bones of their loved ones, while archaeologists uncover traces of ancient civilizations and astronomers examine the most distant and oldest galaxies. Melding celestial and earthly quests, NOSTALGIA FOR THE LIGHT is a gorgeous, moving, and deeply personal odyssey.

There will be a Q&A with director Patricio Guzman on 3/18/11.

Tickets: Adults $13, Children 12 and under $9, Seniors $9 Members $8
For information about specific screening time call (212) 924-7771 or visit http://www.ifccenter.com/

How to apply: Send cover letter and resume to ria@promisesfilms.com

Promises Films is an independent documentary production company located at the Saul Zaentz Media Center in Berkeley, CA. We are in the Outreach/Distribution/Publicity phase for our latest documentary film Our Summer in Tehran, which follows filmmaker (and former Globetrekker host) Justine Shapiro and her 6-year-old son to Tehran where they spend the summer with three very different Iranian families. The film will be broadcast on public television stations across the nation in April 2011. To learn more about the film and view clips, visit our website at www.oursummerintehran.com.

This is a wonderful job for a motivated college student or anyone interested in learning more about how an independent documentary film gets out into the world.

In this position, you will learn about how an independent documentary attracts publicity, outreach, domestic and international distribution and broadcast. You will be exposed to some fundraising and screening events. This internship offers you an opportunity to connect with other filmmakers at the Zaentz Media Center, build your resume, and learn the nuts and bolts of how to make an independent film. Past interns and employees have gone on to do their masters in journalism and filmmaking (USC and Stanford) and work at Pixar, Pilot Films and TV Production in London. This internship does not involve hands-on, field production.

Promises Films is a non-profit organization.

Required Skills
• Must have strong skills in editing HTML and CSS in order to make necessary updates to company websites
• Technical excellence with Apple computers, Microsoft Office, and Google docs
• A whiz with social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter
• Ability to communicate well over the telephone, email, and in person
• Well-organized with strong follow-through and attention to detail
• Ability to take direction and work independently, without the need for constant supervision
• Familiarity with Final Cut Pro a plus! (on-going editing for new web-clips)

Responsibilities will include
• Updating company websites and social media sites
• Mailing/shipping and tracking shipments of DVD screeners
• Outreach to the Iranian-American community, museums, libraries, schools, and universities to host screening events of Our Summer in Tehran
• Maintaining the office contact database on FileMaker pro.
• Coordinating receipts, invoices, and donations with our office bookkeeper
• Post content about Our Summer in Tehran on organizational websites, list-serves, and social networking sites
• Editing clips for the film’s website and YouTube (optional-depending on your interest and skill with editing)

To apply, please send a cover letter and resume to ria@promisesfilms.com.
