A warm welcome, Elissa and Buhoro. Elissa, we saved you the trouble by upgrading you to "professional" status. Figured anyone who shoots with a combat helmet on deserves it.

(Regarding the combat helmet) Haha! Indeed Doug!

Welcome Elissa, I will view your work when I get home. VIMEO is blocked off in my office. There are tons of talented doc filmmakers that are part of the D-word, and we welcome one more (with a bad-ass headwear too)!

Hoping to see more interesting works from Kabul. Keep making them!

Hey all!

It's nice to be here. I stumbled in on this website while checking out an article about the Hot-docs pitch forum. This looks like a great site to discuss and debate docs and all of the methods and practices that come along with it. Hope you are all well, and working on exciting projects! I've been working on a documentary for the past 4 years. It chronicles two school years at a small charter school that teaches refugee children alongside local American kids. You can check out the trailer here: https://vimeo.com/31798296

Looking forward to the discussion!

Best,
Adam

Hi everyone!

Glad to be here, I was recently the director of photography on my first feature doc, "Just Like Being There."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bk8yZoSauOU

It was my first taste of documentary film-making and what else can I say but I am addicted. Hoping to soon be able to film many more documentaries!

Looking forward to chatting it up with everyone on the message boards.
