Hi D-Word Community-

First met Doug Block in Thom Power's Documentary Producing class at NYU last year and I'm glad to be here.

Anyway, we all know the power of a really great doc trailer as a calling-card to open doors and build production teams – so we're looking for a editor / "trailer doctor" in NYC to re-cut our 10min trailer down to less than 3 min (see link to YT). The doc is called "Get It All Out" – and it's a story about the power of a long-lost music songbook to survive decades in the hearts and minds of those who first heard it and made it. It's cross-platform project that includes a feature, an album, an eBook and a 10 piece orchestra (down from 13 last year, due to market conditions).

Give it a look and let us know what you think by sending along an email to info(at)mediagroove(dot)com with your CV/resume, experience and links to your previous editing work.

Thanks!

Will

Hey, Will, glad to see you made it here. I edited your post only to change your email address (spelling out the "at" and "dot"). Since this is a public topic, you'd be subjected to spammers, otherwise.

I'm selling a MTF Services Ltd, Nikon G to Sony E Mount Adapter and MTF M43/E mount support, because I've switched from Nikon lenses to Zeiss.

The lens support has never been used and the adapter has been used twice.

The adapter allows you to attach any Nikon-mounted lens to the Sony NEX-3/5/7, NEX-VG10/20 and the Sony NEX FS-100 cameras. It is compatible with DX and 35mm format lenses and also supports lenses with or without aperture rings.
