I'm an emerging, non-union Director of Photography / Camera Operator with over 10 years of experience working on national TV commercials, music videos, and feature narrative films. My years of working in still photography gave me an extensive understanding of lighting and composition which I've segued into my cinematography. Although, I have no experience in non-fiction storytelling, I am extremely passionate about documenting the truth. As Federico Fellini once said,"My fantasy is to make something REAL". So, please feel free to contact me whether or not your next project calls for a Director of Photography and/or Camera Operator.

FLAHERTY NYC PRESENTS
Rebecca Richman Cohen's WAR DON DON

MONDAY, MAY 9, 7:30 PM, ANTHOLOGY FILM ARCHIVES
32 SECOND AVE, NEW YORK, NY, 10003
$9/GENERAL $7/STUDENTS & SENIORS $6/AFA MEMBERS

Director Rebecca Richman Cohen and producer Francisco Bello in person for discussion with Chris Santora, one of the Sesay trial prosecutors featured in the film!

Rebecca Richman Cohen's remarkable debut film WAR DON DON begins at the end of a decade-long civil war in Sierra Leone which has left a population devastated by mass murder, rape and savage disfigurement. Now, in the capital city of Freetown, United Nations soldiers guard a heavily fortified building known as the Special Court. Inside, a man named Issa Sesay awaits his trial. The prosecution say Sesay is a war criminal, guilty of heinous crimes against humanity. The defense says he is a reluctant fighter who protected civilians and was himself a victim of terrible poverty and violent coercion. Justice Benjamin Itoe says the Court means "to bring an end to impunity and to contribute to the peace and reconciliation process." WAR DON DON presents the trial of Issa Sesay in incredible detail and from myriad perspectives, offering a rare and penetrating view of international criminal justice.

"One of the most viscerally compelling documentaries of the year. It will leave you haunted."
Mary Anderson Casavant, Filmmaker Magazine

"Without eliding the grim human cost of the crimes and criminals involved, Rebecca Richman Cohen's unusually lucid documentary plays against type."
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

"Fascinating and complex... a remarkably sophisticated examination of the machinery of justice."
The Independent Weekly, Raleigh, NC

Seva Lives (Francisco Serrano) Monday, June 12 at Anthology Film Archives

In 1983, a Puerto Rican newspaper published Seva: History of the first U.S. invasion of Puerto Rico in May 1898. This fictional account of the U.S. invading Puerto Rico and massacring its people was a national sensation. SEVA LIVESdeconstructs the sociopolitical debate of the facts and myths surrounding the history of Puerto Rico and explores the issues that arise when fiction meddles with recollections of the past. Organized by Cinema Tropical, this screening celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 7th Robert J. Flaherty Seminar, held in Barranquitas, Puerto Rico.

I am working on 'Under the Radar' a documentary on the undocumented Irish living in New York. I could do with adivce/help on fundraising options.

'Under the Radar' is a documentary feature that chronicles the lives of the undocumented Irish who immigrated to New York looking for a better life or simply to avoid the unemployment lines back home. It is factual storytelling at its best. It is told from the prospective of three recently arrived Irish immigrants as they navigate their way through a myriad of hurdles in order to stay one step ahead of the immigration authorities. It captures the excitement and disappointment immigrants go through in the Big Apple as they pursue their dreams. It chronicles their fears and aspirations in the wake of 9/11.
Thanks for taking the time.

FLAHERTY NYC PRESENTS:
Francisco Serrano's SEVA LIVES

MONDAY, JUNE 13, 7:30 PM, ANTHOLOGY FILM ARCHIVES
32 SECOND AVE, NEW YORK, NY, 10003
$9/GENERAL $7/STUDENTS & SENIORS $6/AFA MEMBERS

Filmmaker in person for discussion!

Considered one of the best Puerto Rican films in recent years, SEVA LIVES offers a post-modern look at the history and impact of the U.S. invasion and occupation of the island.

When a fictional story reimagining the U.S. invasion was published in a widely-read newspaper in Puerto Rico, its readers believed it as fact. But like the infamous chaos-inducing Orson Welles radio dramatization of the War of the Worlds, the story was utter fiction simply taken as reality. The story contained letters from a historian who unearthed evidence that the United States did not enter Puerto Rico peacefully in June, as history dictates. Instead, the Americans invaded through a town named "Seva," massacred its people, and covered it up by changing the town's name to "Ceiba," its current name.

This story, as the newspaper tried to make clear, is fiction. Yet readers around the island believed it and a scandal ensued.

SEVA LIVES redefines Puerto Rican history in this update of the classic Puerto Rican short story "Seva." It mixes fictional elements with actual archival footage and real interviews with historians to discuss the significance and impact of the short story today. But, most significantly, SEVA LIVES deconstructs the sociopolitical debate of the facts and myths surrounding the history of Puerto Rico and explores the issues that arise when fiction meddles with recollections of the past.

Organized by Cinema Tropical, this screening celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 7th Robert J. Flaherty Seminar, held in Barranquitas, Puerto Rico.

===Bio===
SEVA LIVES is the first film of director, producer and editor Francisco Serano, whose previous credits as a digital animator include Maldeamores, Party Time and Diez en la Música. Serrano spends most of his time in front of his computer, where he made most of SEVA LIVES. He was born and raised in San Suan, Puerto Rico, and currently lives in Washington, D.C.

Hi All~

I'm looking for projects that need a stills/footage researcher, or assistant producer. I have years of experience working as a photo editor at various magazines (Newsweek, Vogue, Daily Beast) and organizations (UNICEF, Channel 13, Alarm Will Sound), and am trying to move into documentary film. I'm about to start a two month freelance gig at the New York Times. In addition to my licensing/research experience, I'm also an adept producer for still shoots – and am hoping to apply those skills to documentaries as well. I recently finished research and licensing for a film about Harper Lee, and have also worked on broadcast & live event productions. Last fall I traveled to Iceland, where I collaborated with a photojournalist to make a short documentary about the horse herders. I produced, photographed, and was the audio recordist for Herd In Iceland, which is currently in the editing stage.

Thanks so much for reading.

I need an AE to come in for a day on Sunday to help me organize/categorize media on my current project (a doc about the Cultural Revolution). We're using FCP7. Basically I need someone to come and organize media files by content rather than date (which is how it's organized right now) so I can quickly and easily locate footage. Piad gig; Los Angeles; Sunday probably 4pm-midnight (or whatever time they get it done).

Please contact me if you or someone you know can do this!

Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I just finished producing a funny, shocking and controversial feature-length documentary. I've got some good things happening already but I'd like to chat with anyone in the documentary community who has contacts/connections/insight and is interested in associate/executive producing. It'd also be nice to make new contacts/friends around the country/world to bounce ideas off with respect to this film, your film, future films, festivals, distribution, producer reps, etc.

I'll leave my trailer, twitter and personal email. I look forward to chatting.

Docs In Progress is now in its seventh year of presenting documentary work-in-progress screenings to the public as a means for filmmakers to get feedback from a general audience.

THE LIST by Beth Murphy (82 minute rough cut)
After leading reconstruction teams for the U.S. government in Iraq, Kirk Johnson returns home only to discover that his Iraqi friends and colleagues are being killed, kidnapped or forced into exile by radical militias... all because they worked for the United States trying to help rebuild their country. Stunned by fear-mongering and stagnating bureaucracy that prevents these Iraqis from being rescued, Kirk begins compiling a list of these allies and, one by one, helps them find refuge and a new life in America.

WHEN?
Friday, June 3 from 7:00-10:00 pm.

WHERE?
George Washington University's Media and Public Affairs Building
Lower Level Auditorium (B-07)

I'm looking for an editing/overall assistant to work with me in developing my new in-the-works wedding documentary. The ideal candidate has good knowledge of FCP and all things technical, and is extremely (bordering on obsessively) well organized. Brownie points for being a fast learner and fearless self-starter.

Position has fairly flexible days, but requires commitment of 2-3 days per week.

Our office is located in Dumbo, Brooklyn. This is an unpaid position to start with, save for a daily travel and meal stipend. Hopefully will become paid, in time, as we're trying to raise funding. My films (the latest being The Kids Grow Up and 51 Birch Street ) have been co-produced with broadcasters like HBO, ZDF/Arte and Channel Four and have shown both theatrically and on television throughout the world.

Furthermore, we're a small company and you'll be working directly with me, which previous assistants (at least those who've learned the art of sucking up) say is a priceless experience. For anyone with the ambition to learn documentary directing and producing from the inside, this can be like a one person film school.

To apply, please send me an email telling a bit about who you are, your film experience and what you hope to learn from working on the film: doug (at) d-word (dot) com. Thanks!

Hi Everyone!

Do you know any eccentric folks who might be interested in sharing their "things" with the world?... I'm producing a documentary web series this summer that's currently casting, and I'm hoping you might be able to help. :)

'Here's the Thing…' profiles people through pictures of things in their home. Using a combination of still photographs and voiceover narration, the seemingly mundane ‘things’ examined in the series become vehicles for authentic personal portraits. The series connects people together by showing that no matter how wildly diverse our walks of life, everyone has a compelling story tucked away in their home that other people find fascinating. Check out the show online at http://www.heresthethingtv.com.

If you happen to know anyone who might fit into any of the categories below who also has interesting "things" to showcase & would be into the idea of being featured in an episode, please let me know as soon as possible (we'll be shooting during a road trip across the country from June 15th – July 15th, so folks can be located anywhere in the United States). Also – if you know someone who'd be a great match for the show who doesn't fit any of the below categories, feel free to send their info along to me anyway (we'd be happy to consider her/him).

- politician (DC)
- career gambler (las vegas) (famous poker player)
- roadside attraction type people (weird collections of things, world's largest ball of twine, etc.)
- pastor/minister/preacher
- rock climber
- new ager / witch
- oil man/tycoon
- civil war re-enactor
- soldier on leave, just back from iraq/afghanistan, or otherwise military person
- prisoner
- park ranger (at a classic american national park)
- prostitute or sex worker
- farmer
- native american
- someone who lives in lighthouse
- famous actor/actress or media personality
- self-proclaimed "hillbilly"
- truck driver
- migrant worker
- cowboy
- retired couple who lives in an RV, also traveling cross country

DocuClub in June!

Our June DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, June 22, 7 p.m., at DCTV, located at 87 Lafayette (at Walker).

This month, we will screen a rough cut of SPOILS: EXTRAORDINARY HARVEST by Alex Mallis. This short documentary captures intimate portraits of three New Yorkers on a journey through the culture of dumpster diving, illuminating a practice as old as agriculture. The fly-on-the-wall access to these gleaners offers an unvarnished glimpse into one night of urban harvest. For more info about the film, go to: www.analectfilms.com.

Producer/Director Alexander Ramírez-Mallis is a filmmaker living and working out of Brooklyn, NY. His short documentary, THE DENTIST, was selected to play at the 2011 Independent Film Festival of Boston. His collaborative short, MATTHEW 24:12, won best film and best directing at the 2011 International Doc Challenge at Hot Docs in Toronto. He is an avid photographer and greatly enjoys the darkroom. He is an MFA candidate for Integrated Media Arts at Hunter College (CUNY) and a member of the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective.

Our moderator will be Nonso Christian Ugbode, a writer, producer and web/media conceptualist. He works as the director of digital media for the National Black Programming Consortium in Harlem, NY, where he oversees content and style for NBPC's Blackpublicmedia.Org website. He also manages in-house production of content and e-advocacy for NBPC. As a producer and filmmaker his recent works include COLORED FRAMES, a film about black painters directed by Lerone Wilson, currently in distribution and screening at festivals. He received his BFA in Film & Television Production at New York University.

Looking for experienced doc shooter in Cleveland or surrounding area

Hello-
First time poster on D-word. Great site.

I work for a PBS doc series based in New York – we’re called “Art21”, and produce profiles on contemporary artists (art21.org, pbs.org/art21.)
I'm looking for a reccomendation for a Cleveland based shooter for a late June shoot we’re doing at Cleveland Clinic. Basically hoping to cover a photography show there – so we’ll be looking to shoot hung artwork (pics behind glass in all likelihood), and the artist moving around exhibit space, interacting with staff/curator.

We’re looking for a doc-experienced, art-friendly DP (HD owner-operator preferable) who we can trust to send out to Cleveland Clinic, deal with talent/location and follow shot list on his/her own (we won’t be sending a producer out.) And most importantly shoot in the Art21 style – think pre-Reality TV, prestige PBS programming style. Thoughtful framings, slow pans, following action or locking off when appropriate, potentially a little dolly work (if time/gear allows.) Overall feel is relaxed, contemplative.

Let me know if any names come to mind. You can e-mail directly at nick@art21.org.

Sincerely,
Nick.

FLAHERTY NYC PRESENTS:
Francisco Serrano's SEVA LIVES

MONDAY, JUNE 13, 7:30 PM, ANTHOLOGY FILM ARCHIVES
32 SECOND AVE, NEW YORK, NY, 10003
$9/GENERAL $7/STUDENTS & SENIORS $6/AFA MEMBERS

Filmmaker in person for discussion!

Considered one of the best Puerto Rican films in recent years, SEVA LIVES offers a post-modern look at the history and impact of the U.S. invasion and occupation of the island.

When a fictional story reimagining the U.S. invasion was published in a widely-read newspaper in Puerto Rico, its readers believed it as fact. But like the infamous chaos-inducing Orson Welles radio dramatization of the War of the Worlds, the story was utter fiction simply taken as reality. The story contained letters from a historian who unearthed evidence that the United States did not enter Puerto Rico peacefully in June, as history dictates. Instead, the Americans invaded through a town named "Seva," massacred its people, and covered it up by changing the town's name to "Ceiba," its current name.

This story, as the newspaper tried to make clear, is fiction. Yet readers around the island believed it and a scandal ensued.

SEVA LIVES redefines Puerto Rican history in this update of the classic Puerto Rican short story "Seva." It mixes fictional elements with actual archival footage and real interviews with historians to discuss the significance and impact of the short story today. But, most significantly, SEVA LIVES deconstructs the sociopolitical debate of the facts and myths surrounding the history of Puerto Rico and explores the issues that arise when fiction meddles with recollections of the past.

Organized by Cinema Tropical, this screening celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 7th Robert J. Flaherty Seminar, held in Barranquitas, Puerto Rico.

===Bio===
SEVA LIVES is the first film of director, producer and editor Francisco Serano, whose previous credits as a digital animator include Maldeamores, Party Time and Diez en la Música. Serrano spends most of his time in front of his computer, where he made most of SEVA LIVES. He was born and raised in San Suan, Puerto Rico, and currently lives in Washington, D.C.

Hi everyone,
I'm seeking an experienced videographer to be a second camera on a shoot taking place this Saturday, June 25th, from about 1 to 3:30. It centers on a September 11-related memorial event occurring in a garden in Inwood at the northern tip of Manhattan. I can't pay much but I'm offering $50 and lots of gratitude. I'm shooting with a Panasonic DVX-100 so I'm seeking someone who owns the same kind of camera, and I'd prefer someone with experience with two-camera shoots. If interested please email me at neilorman[AT]earthlink[DOT]net.
Thanks a lot,
Neil

Third World Newsreel (TWN) and NewFilmmakers Series are proud to present Asian American Filmmakers Program. Please join us on Tuesday, July 5th at 6PM.

Life or Liberty by Konrad Aderer, 8 minutes
Shokriea Yaghi copes with the senseless incarceration of her husband in 9/11's aftermath. A Japanese American woman who lived through the WWII camps shares her bitterness and her fears for the future, as immigration law expert Cyrus Mehta and former federal prosecutor Michael Wildes debate the larger context of anti-terror policies. Part of the Call to Media Action series.

Rising Up: The Alams by Konrad Aderer, 11 minutes
See how a Bangladeshi-American family targeted by Special Registration fights back. As part of the Homeland security measures, immigrant men from 25, mostly Muslim countries were required to enroll in a Special Registration program. The result: no evidence of terror, but some 13,000 people are now being deported mostly for expired visas. The Alams were among the many families who believed that voluntarily participating in the Special Registration would show their loyalty. Instead, they face the prospect of breaking up their family, despite a decade of hard work and the raising of two children. Working with DRUM (Desis Rising Up and Moving), the Queens South Asian activist group, the Alams have become activists, organizing to fight for their right to stay. Part of the Call for Change series.

Two Months to Home by Janice Ahn, 8 minutes
In the months prior to 9-11, an Afghan woman named Samira Rahman narrowly escapes from the Taliban, losing her family. After settling down in Long Island and beginning a new one, Samira is taken away by Homeland Security agents in the middle of the night. Her husband Abdul, who runs a coffee cart in South Ferry, and their two young boys await news of her fate.

Dastaar: Defending Sikh Identity by Kevin Lee, 12 min
A restaurant owner beaten. A policeman fired. A 20 year subway conductor born in the U.S., threatened with job loss: All for wearing the signature turbans of their religion, Sikhism. Since 9/11, hate crimes and job losses have plagued the Sikh-American community, whose religion originated in India, and is not even Islamic. In response, the NYC Sikh community has organized to confront the bias and attacks, through legal suits, pressure on city officials and proactive public education. An excellent introduction to an often misunderstood religion and the success of community activism. Part of the Call for Change series.

December 7/September 11 by Ann Brandman & Paul Nishijima, 15 minutes
A comparison of how the events and possible after effects of September 11th may mirror those of the attack on Pearl Harbor. A collection of interviews with Japanese-American veterans who witnessed the events of December 7 in Hawaii offer their insight into what has happened and what might be to come. Part of the Call to Media Action series.

Enemy Alien Sneak Preview at Anthology Film Archives
Join Japanese American filmmaker Konrad Aderer to a sneak preview of his upcoming documentary film Enemy Alien.

Enemy Alien, a first-person documentary, is the gripping story of the fight to free Farouk Abdel-Muhti, a gentle but indomitable Palestinian-born human rights activist detained in a post-9/11 sweep of Muslim immigrants. Told through the eyes of the filmmaker, the grandson of Japanese Americans interned during World War II, this documentary takes on unprecedented intimacy and historical resonance.

As the filmmaker confronts his own family legacy of incarceration, his involvement in the current struggle deepens. Resistance brings consequences: In retaliation for organizing a massive protest from inside detention, Farouk is beaten and locked in solitary confinement, and his American-born son Tarek is arrested in a counterterrorism investigation into the documentary itself.

Hi everybody,

We are 2002studios based in Harrow, NW London in the UK. We are currently recording a lot of multi-lingual voice-over projects for well-known multimedia and linguistic companies. These projects range from video tutorials to audio integrated software and even complete audio books with music and sound effects! We would love to work with you to overdub your films in many different languages. How do we make that happen?

Well, we have our very own database of over 150 native speakers in 38 different languages. We provide male as well as female voice-over actors in English (U.K. regional dialects as well as American English), French, Dutch (Flemish is also available), German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian,… but also Japanese, Indonesian, Mandarin, Cantonese, Farsi, Croatian, Hungarian, Turkish and many other languages. If we don’t have a language in our database that you are currently looking for or if you are not pleased with our selection, then we will hold auditions and find you a suitable voice-over actor at no cost.

Linguists have verified all our native speakers in the database so that we can provide 100% authenticity. 100% of the recording takes place in our London studio, so we have a consistent sound, have complete oversight of the quality.

We provide all this with VERY COMPETITIVE pricing and we are not shy to throw in some bonuses when asked to do so (Think music and sound design).

If you are interested in finding out more, feel free to contact us anytime.

If you are and need a fixer, cultural consultant, facilitator, or basic translator, I am qualified and excited to contribute to your production.

I'm knowledgeable and passionate about this region's history, culture, and its peoples and would be eager to channel this insight into documentary film-making. Please check out my profile for essential info and contact me for a full resume/more details: alex(dot)safos(at)gmail.com. Thanks for keeping me in-mind if the right opportunity presents itself. –Best, Alex

My name is Jeff Dreyer. I'm a father of a Special Needs 22 yr old child. I'm so very tired of hearing the derogatory, demeaning and hurtful word "retard" being used so rampantly these days. I made an 18 minute documentary titled "it's Just Not Funny". The premise is to get the entertainment industry to take the word "retard" out of their scripts. The video was on YouTube for nine days only. It had almost 600 views though. I had over 30 wonderful comments on YouTube, and I received from across the country another 100 positive messages on my Face Book page and my birdland@cox.net e-mail.
Here's the issue. The Special Olympics Southern Cal. made me take it down, because they said some of my content is negative towards the entertainment industry. That's the idea. Someone has to step up an speak out against the offenders that perpetuate this use. It's everywhere these days. TV, movies, talk shows, interviews et cetera. The person that edited it for me isn't interested in continuing with my project. I need someone to help me take the SOSC logo out of some of the footage, and remove their name from the credits. I then want to enter the documentary in some film festivals. If the right person with some horse power in the business viewed it, and they have a Special Needs child, sibling, relative or friend, the doc would catch fire. Then possibly we can make the doc larger and get some results. Anyone that would like to volunteer about five hours would certainly be included in the credits. I live in S. Orange County Cal. I could come up to Los Angeles if need be. Thanks, Jeff

Hi everyone,

Only 19 days left for our Kickstarter fundraising campaign to complete and we need YOUR support to reach our goal. If you haven’t contributed yet, please click here to donate to our project so we can bring the much-needed humanitarian help to women who are victims of sex trafficking.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/iLan/holy-ghetto-0

The US State department Trafficking-In-Person report (TIP report) clearly indicates the stagnation of Israel’s enforcement in regards to sex trafficking. After speaking to a senior Police official who specializes in curbing sex trafficking in Israel, he revealed to me in a personal interview that trafficked women numbers are rising again, and this time, the traffickers are choosing South American women as their target.

In 2003, construction was completed on a pipeline that stretches a thousand kilometers from the oil fields of Chad to the beaches of Cameroon. Funded by oil giants Exxon, Chevron and Petronas, and politically insured by the World Bank, the Chad-Cameroon Oil Pipeline was a beacon of hope to the Chadian and Cameroonian people. It promised to spread prosperity and opportunity through some of the poorest communities in the world. *Quel Souvenir* follows the path of the Chad-Cameroon pipeline to witness its lasting effects, featuring the compelling individuals who live along its path. From the fishing ports of Kribi to oil installations of Doba, the stunning diversity of the landscape through which the pipeline passes reflects the many different Africans who live with it daily. Despite their differences, the communities along the pipeline speak with one voice to ask “If the land is so rich, why are we so poor?” As the world looks increasingly to Sub-Saharan African to satisfy its thirst for oil, this timely film asks what is the human cost of this extraction, and how oil effects the struggle for survival, the fight for democracy and the dream of peace. To see a trailer, please go to: http://danyaabt.com/?p=95.

Director/Producer Danya Abt’s desire to use film to create a more just and peaceful world has driven her from her native Detroit to the bayous of Louisiana and as far as the deserts of Central Africa. Her films have been featured at the MoMa in New York, the Detroit Institute of the Arts and a variety of community gathering places to generate dialogue and inspire social change. Most recently, Abt served as Senior Video Producer for GRITtv with Laura Flanders. Her work will be included as part of PBS syndication in the fall.

Our moderator will be Chi-hui Yang, a film programmer, lecturer and writer based in New York. As a guest curator, Yang has presented film and video series at film festivals and events internationally, including the 2011 MOMA Documentary Fortnight, 2008 Robert Flaherty Film Seminar (“The Age of Migration”), Seattle International Film Festival, Washington D.C. International Film Festival and Barcelona Asian Film Festival. From 2000-2010, he was the Director and Programmer of the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, the largest showcase of its kind in the U.S. Yang is also the programmer of “Cinema Asian America,” a new On-Demand service offered by Comcast and currently a Visiting Scholar at NYU’s Center for Media, Culture and History.

I am interested in transcribing audio interviews for anybody. I worked for Filmmaker Magazine, and have a lot of experience in transcribing interviews that ran anywhere from 10 minutes to nearly two hours. I am very astute, and would transcribe it all, then listen to it again to catch anything that slipped by me. My fee would be $2 a minute, so if the interview is 30 minutes, it would be $60. However, I am open to negotiations.

Please let me know if there is anything you need to be transcribed and would like my services.

On very short notice, I need an intern or production/technical assistant in the Boston area – this Wednesday and Friday, from noon till 4 pm each day, at the MIT Media Lab. Main duty will be to watch over a locked-off camera position – and reframe occasionally if the staging warrants it. So a modicum of tech experience is a plus. 240.446.5317

I'm producing a shoot on July 30th in NYC. We already have two Sony Z7Us that we'll be shooting with, and we're looking to hire a person with a Z7U to be the third camera, or just rent the camera. Anyone have a Z7U still or know someone who does?

Good People of the D-

I'm in the process of finishing my first feature doc, about a memorial run across America (http://www.filmforthefallen.com) – but I am posting today because I'm looking for assistant editing work, in an effort to build for the future and pay the bills. I've been Apple-certified in FCP7, but more importantly I'm a hard worker and eager to learn. I worked at Miramax for several years, and before that assisted D-Word co-host, Doug Block, while he was making "51 Birch Street".

I'd love to talk to anyone and everyone about any openings or leads of which you may be aware, in the NYC area. The humble beginnings of my reel can be found here: http://vimeo.com/user7458495/videos. My email is ajmck08 [at] gmail [dot] com; phone is 646.662.0565.

Thanks very much,

Docs In Progress has two programs in Washington DC tonight and tomorrow...

Thursday: Documentary Appreciation Salon
at Modern Times Coffeehouse (Politics & Prose Bookstore)
"Documentary Film Legacy on Reality TV"
This salon series brings together filmmakers and documentary film aficionados to discuss and debate great issues in documentary cinema. Each salon will focus around a particular sub-genre of documentary and use clips from documentary films and questions from the moderator to spur reflection and discussion. This salon's topic will focus on how documentary has influenced and is influenced by "reality" television. Now an almost default setting for mainstream entertainment, Reality TV emerged in the early 1970s as a highly experimental and controversial mode of documentary expression. This salon focuses on Reality TV’s intersections with different trends in documentary filmmaking, how the mode has shifted over the past four decades, and its current place in the broadcast industry. Groundbreaking programs such as PBS’s An American Family (1973) will be central to the discussion. We are pleased to welcome guest facilitator, Josh Glick. He is a PhD candidate at Yale University in the departments of Film Studies and American Studies. His research and teaching interests are focused on the history and theory of American documentary film, Hollywood, and race and representation in popular media.
WHEN? Thursday, July 21 from 7:30-9:30 pm
WHERE? Modern Times Coffeehouse at Politics & Prose Bookstore (5015 Connecticut Avenue, NW Washington DC 20008)
FEE? This is a free program. We encourage you to purchase delicious food or drink from our sponsor, Modern Times Coffeehouse.
Seating is limited so we recommend you RSVP through this link.

Friday: Documentary Work-in-Progress Screening
at The Documentary Center at the George Washington University
Screening of Beth Murphy's THE LIST

Now in its seventh year, the Docs In Progress work-in-progress screenings provide an opportunity for local and visiting documentary filmmakers to screen their rough cuts to a general audience and get valuable feedback. Facilitators from Docs In Progress moderate a feedback session with the audience after the screening. This honest and constructive feedback is aimed at helping the filmmakers get to the next stage of completing and distributing the film. The next film to be screened is Beth Murphy's The List. The film follows Kirk Johnson who, after leading reconstruction teams for the U.S. government in Iraq, returns home only to discover that his Iraqi friends and colleagues are being killed, kidnapped or forced into exile by radical militias... all because they worked for the United States trying to help rebuild their country. Stunned by fear-mongering and stagnating bureaucracy that prevents these Iraqis from being rescued, Kirk begins compiling a list of these allies and, one by one, helps them find refuge and a new life in America.
This program is sponsored by The Documentary Center at the George Washington University.
WHEN? Friday, July 22 from 7:00-9:30 pm
WHERE? George Washington University Media and Public Affairs Building (805 21st Street, NW – Room 309 Washington DC 20052)
FEE? $10 suggested donation. Cash only at the door. No advance tickets or RSVPs.

Hi Karen, Unfortunately I don't have sound recordist recommendations, but the first documentary I ever made (Laid to Waste ) was about Chester, PA, so I'm intrigued to learn more about your current project if you're interested in sharing...

Seeking Camera/Sound Tech for Doc Shoot in Brighton, England August 2, 2011

I'm asking for some help locating a skilled videographer with a decent light/camera/sound kit. I'm in search of a pro who'd be willing to shoot this interview on a deferred payment basis. Shooting/sound credit assured.

The job consists of framing, lighting and sound-recording an hour-long interview on location at the manager's home. The whole job, from setup to strike, can be completed within 2 hours. Can someone please help me locate a jazz-loving professional camera/sound/lights artist who would be up to the task?

If so, they may call me directly anytime at +1 917.975.5940

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Best wishes to all,

Hello D-Worders,

I'm seeking two DPs for a documentary shoot in Washington DC for this Saturday and Sunday (7/30 & 7/31). The right people should be experienced in shooting fly-on-the-wall verite footage as well as candid interviews. Canon 7Ds, Canon 5D Mark IIs, Panasonic AF100s, or equivalent cameras are all of interest. DPs should also have a simple sound kit (ie. Zoom recorder for DSLRs, wireless lavs, shotgun mic, tripod). If you're interested or can recommend some good folks, please email me at: suzanne@flickerflacker.com

Thanks!
Suzanne

In reply to Jon Fordham's post on Wed 13 Jul 2011 :

I had the privilege of taking Jon Fordham's seminar this evening and wanted to comment on it for those considering taking it.

I highly recommend taking it and feel that I learned a tremendous amount in a very short time. Jon and Evan were extremely detailed, thorough, and generous in their answers and explanations. We covered a wide arrange of topics, including post workflows for DSLR cameras, numerous codecs/formats and their specific limitations, preparing media for maximum usage and distribution (and not simply one function/outlet) as well as general media management-related topics at each stage of production.

Although the description outlines the topics that Jon and Evan (who also ran the seminar as well) covered, I was also asked ahead of time if I had particular postproduction workflow questions. I spoke on the phone with Evan and described the parameters of two ambitious projects that I have coming up in January.

I was very excited when I came in when I learned he had consulted several colleagues and had detailed information specific to my situation that was incredibly helpful and illuminating.

It is clear that both Jon and Evan are very excited about what they do and this definitely comes across in how they present material and respond to questions.

I have taken several other postproduction workshops in the past year on various topics and of varying quality, but this was one of the rare workshops that pushed away from the sort of Procrustean approach to technical aspects of filmmaking and postproduction.

I have also made a big effort to learn FCP more thoroughly as well as Avid and Premier (as several projects have required Premier) and this workshop definitely built on that knowledge and provided a deeper, much more nuanced understanding of concepts I thought I knew.

I can imagine that more seasoned postproduction professionals would benefit even more out of this workshop with Jon because of the his and Evan's breadth of experience and willingness to engage with a project's specific demands.

Thanks again Jon!
