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

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.

Looking for a Native American Documentary-maker

Hi all,

A NYFA thesis student from Bulgaria will soon begin shooting a doc about an Omaha Sioux family who are trying to maintain and nourish their traditional ways against rather daunting societal, economic, and now medical odds. She and I would both like to get her connected to a Native American documentarian for mentoring as she goes. It could be as significant or minimal as anyone is willing to do. She has great craft mentors through the school. And she will have the guidance and advice of several Omaha people. Still, while some of her faculty have made docs with and about Native Americans, none of the Omaha advisers knows anything about filmmaking and none of us has the prospective that an actual Native American might lend her. She'd love to find someone Omaha but will thrilled with anyone who could combine some knowledge of film making with a Native American personal perspective.

Anyone?

Please email me at aswift@nyfa.edu if you, or someone you know, might be willing to help.

Thanks!
Andrea

from Arts Engine, Inc.:

Our next DocuClub will take place on Thursday, March 22, 7 p.m. at DCTV, located at 87 Lafayette (at Walker). This month, we will screen a rough cut of Changing Face of Harlem by award-winning filmmaker Shawn Batey. March's DocuClub will be moderated by Marilyn Ness, Arts Engine's Director of Production.

Changing Face of Harlem is a one-hour documentary that examines the revitalization of Harlem told through the deeply personal stories of its residents, small business owners, politicians, developers and clergy. The film takes a critical look at Harlem’s history, early development, and present transformation. Twenty years ago, according to the press, Harlem was a crime-ridden ghetto full of hoodlums and drugs. Though recognized internationally as “The Black Mecca,” the historic neighborhood was overlooked for decades. Longtime residents weathered the storm despite the lack of city services and building landlord abandonment. Bank practices of redlining in the 1980’s prevented many residents from purchasing turn of the century brownstones within their own blocks. Recently, however Harlem has matured into a prosperous locale for commercial and corporate interests. As New York City exhausts its scarce amount of centrally located prime real estate, it has marketed Harlem as an ideal investment. With this influx of new investment has come a younger, more professional, and affluent class of residents. The film offers fresh perspectives from community members on the pressing issues of class, cultural preservation and sustainability.

If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to docuclub@artsengine.net. Admission at DCTV is free for current DocuClub members and $6 for non-members.
Tickets will be sold at the door, cash only.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

No admittance after 7:15 p.m. Membership is an annual $50 and it includes free admission to all DocuClub events. It takes five minutes to join online:

Hello! I am looking for a grant writer to help with my film – Star in the RIng – it tells the story of when Jews DOMINATED the sport of boxing. It is a part of Jewish history / American history and sport history, that is all but forgotten.

I am honored to say that I received a grant from The Righteous Persons Foundation.

The ideal grant writer could start with helping me write a two page letter of inquiry that can be tailored to the foundations I have narrowed down. I am part of NYFA – which makes this project have a 501 – c – 3 status. I am hoping the good people here – who have done this adventure, may have some recommendations they had good experience and are willing to share. I have been in touch with Joanna Rabiger – she sounds wonderful from people on here... but she is not available till the summer.

Thanks so much for any help!

DocuClub Screenings: Next DocuClub Wednesday April 18th at DCTV!

This month, we will screen a rough cut of MEXICAN DREAM. Our moderator will be Vanessa Erazo of New York International Latino Film Festival.

MEXICAN DREAM is about one group of indigenous migrants who change a pastoral but poverty-stricken life in Mexico for a new home in a small meatpacking town in Minnesota. It introduces several families from an impoverished agrarian community in the state of Oaxaca in southern Mexico. It also presents a Midwestern meatpacking town that was at the center of a crushing national defeat of the meatpacker’s union during the Reagan administration, where the Mexican migrants have formed their own community that exists uncomfortably alongside the mostly white population.

A mix of observational documentary and montage with reportage via interviews and several inter-titles shows how the strong sense of community amongst these immigrants perseveres in the U.S. while the anxieties of working class life set in. The social effects on the families of migrants back home are profound. MEXICAN DREAM brings these pressing issues to light and humanizes the denigrated, undocumented “illegals.” It also discusses how these same anxieties haunt the long time white community. Shot on both sides of the border, it shows the contradictions in many Americans’ ideas about immigration
and how Mexican society has accepted it as a convenient outlet for decades.

About the filmmaker:

Jon Wetterau (Videography/Co-Producer) has worked on documentary productions in various roles in India, Central America and Cameroon. He initiated and photographed ONE COUNTRY, CAMEROON; TWO QUARTIERS. He has directed two other projects in his native Queens, New York City and has a work-in-progress about Americans gentrifying San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

About the moderator:

After having spent several years working for various film festivals—such as the International Latino Film Festival – San Francisco Bay Area, the International Contemporary Film Festival of Mexico City(FICCO) and the Havana Film Festival New York—in a variety of roles, Vanessa Erazo now acts as the Documentary Programmer at the New York International Latino Film Festival. She has curated films on a wide range of topics such as human rights, autism, sports, adoption and homelessness. Until recently, she served as the Programming Co-chair for the New York chapter of the National Association of Latino Independent Producers. She is also a regular film contributor for Remezcla—an online Latino culture guide. Vanessa holds a Master’s degree in Latin American and Caribbean Studies from New York University, and a B.A. in Political Science from San Francisco State University.

Two great Doc U event coming up next week. I've managed to arrange D-Word discounts for both:

DOC U: TRAILER MECHANICS WITH FERNANDA ROSSI
SATURDAY, APRIL 21 FROM 9:30AM TO 6PM
THE ANNEX, SANTA MONICA

Your trailer should be the ultimate pitch, the one thing that sells potential funders on the potential of your project. A fundraising trailer can make or break your film. We want you to stop guessing what works and what doesn't.

IDA has asked internationally renowned author, speaker and story consultant Fernanda Rossi to host a full-day workshop for producers, directors, writers and editors to help make your trailer all that it can be. In this workshop, held on the 3rd floor of The Annex in Santa Monica, you will learn the foundational story structures for fundraising trailers, and hear some of the most common mistakes filmmakers make when crafting their proposals, budgets, and trailers. This workshop will also give you a chance to see Fernanda's work applied to actual trailers, with before and after examples and a few of the successful fundraising trailers.

IDA is offering a limited number of discounted tickets to D-Worders using code "DWORDTRAILER". Buy tickets here

Seriously people, if you're working on fundraising trailers, you need to take Fernanda's class

DOC U: YES, BUT IS IT ART?
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18 AT CINEFAMILY
With the growing popularity of documentary film, many have admirably seized on the power of non-fiction storytelling to affect change around social and political issues. But in all the discussion about content and impact, have we forgotten to explore documentary as cinema, as art? In a lively conversation about how they mobilize aesthetic choices to generate meaning, filmmakers discuss stylistic strategies, creative inspirations, story structure, and the tension between form and content.

On Wednesday, April 18 join Caroline Libresco, Senior Programmer at the Sundance Film Festival, as she moderates a discussion with filmmakers whose documentary work not only delivers a powerful message, but also storytelling impact through visual imagery.

IDA is offering D-Worders the IDA Member discount rate, which you can get by using code "DWORDDOCU" when buying tickets here

Some of these items are currently being used and are marked as not for sale but if you're interested in anything in particular let me know and I can see if we can part with them. Otherwise they should become available within a month.

My name is Jenny, I'm a second year doc MFA student at Hofstra with a BFA in film from UCF. I looking for an internship this summer. I'm not above slavery, but as a poor, starving graduate student paid is preferred. I've interned with Supermarche (Catfish, Paranormal Activity 3) and have done (and am doing) several independent projects.

I speek geek, comfortable and confident editing, shooting, researching or writing... I can get a mean cup of coffee. I've had festival experience, marketing, social media, etc. Basically, I want to be around other artists, learn what I can, meet who I can and eventually become one of you.

Here's a documentary I did finding my biological mother , and here's a spec trailer of my current film about the death of my father. Willing and excited to learn anything. Those are both reflexive, but I've done and will do other types.

Please let me know if you're looking for someone, or if you know of someone needed extra help.

Best,

Any recommendations for a post house that will capture about 100 HDV tapes at a reasonable rate?

Hi D-worders,

A friend needs a DP willing to work a short time for nominal pay to contribute to a really great cause. Read below:

Writopia Lab, a non-profit that offers creative writing workshops for kids ages 8 to 18, is producing 85 plays in a two-week Off-Broadway run, May 8th to 20th. We are looking for someone to shoot all 12 performances. Each night consists of six to eight 10-minute plays. Actors will not be mic'ed, so we'll have to hang some mics or run some digital recorders to get sound.

We can pay you a stipend for this work. You will be contributing to a life-changing experience for these kids. For more information about the project, please see writopialab.org/plays.
