Hola!

I think an introduction is due as it has been ages since I did this d-word thing. It has sure grown! Anyways, I just finished my film EL GENERAL and am coming out of the water after a few years of being totally immersed.

I'm set up to produce and edit in both NYC and Mexico City and I'd really like to take advantage of this cross-border production capacity and be in touch with others who are straddling the border... I'm in La Roma in Mexico City and Clinton Hill in Brooklyn.

Saludos, Natalia

Hola, Natalia! Nice to have you come out from the darkness and into the shining light of the mighty, grown-up D-Word, at long last. And much congrats on all your success (I knew her when, folks)! Will El General be showing in NYC any time soon?

Thanks for the welcome back! Yes, El General will be at Lincoln Center in September and at the Museo del Barrio in November. I will be sure to join your "shameless self-promotion" and post the screening details.

Saludos! Natalia

Natalia, I saw EL GENERAL at Sundance, and we briefly met at a reception there. The film is excellent!

Yes, be completely shameless about it, Natalia. As long as it's not Sept 3rd (the evening of our 10th Anniversary Bash), I'll do my best to be there for the Lincoln Center screening. In fact, let's make it an occasion for another D-Word f2f (we can never have too many).

Hello All,

I'm a Sound Engineer in the Seattle area. A local Producer and member turned me on to your site and I thought I should say "Hi" instead of lurk. I've worked on all types of projects but I really enjoy the doc world. The last doc project I worked on that's been completed was A WINK AND A SMILE by Deirdre Timmons. A film about 10 women and a local burlesque class for non-professionals.

I'm looking forward to learning from your community and, if I can, passing on some of my knowledge.
