Hello! Greetings from Edinburgh Scotland!

I've just found you. Lara Celini in Edinburgh told me about the site.

I've made 2 short docs. My next project is to go with my Edinburgh
Women in Black group to a peace mission to Israel/Palestine. I would
like to hook up with people who have filmed in the Occupied
Territories and get any tips. Also I'm looking for contacts/names of
peace foundations in Uk which would be likely sources of funding.

In mid July I'm going to the Galway Film Festival/Flach so if anyone
on this list is going and wants to meet up please contact me.

Aloha from Maui,

I am an independent filmmaker recently graduated from the SFSU Cinema
program as well as the SFSU Photojournalism program. Currently
working at Akaku: Maui Community TV (Public access cable on Maui).
As for my own projects I am currently in post-production on my first
music video (heavy metal band called KHRINJ) and will start
production on a documentary "Surf Art Forever: The Life and Work of
Bill Ogden" on June 28, 2003. Will be flying into LA and taking a
road trip up the coast of California with Bill Ogden, the legendary
surf artist, to San Francisco. Currently seeking sponsorship of my
project, but haven't had anything concrete as of yet, but I've only
just begun. Glad to have found this site.

Aloha,

My first post. I'm making a doc/bio about my brother. A labor of
love. He's the inventor of a musical instrument called The Stick.
I've been in advertising for many years, over 15 marketing major
studio films. I've always wanted to make one, but have been too
chicken. Seems like the right time, now. I'm trying to decide if
using the Panasonic AG-DVX100 is a good idea. I know it's
pretty low end, but you've got to start somewhere. I went to the
Entertainment Technology World Expo at the Los Angeles
Convention Center on Saturday and did some tests of different
cameras. It looked pretty good.

Yes, John Burgess - but why hiding?

Dan - welcome to The D-Word. As you've also joined our private
filmmaker conference {LINK NOT IMPORTED}, you should introduce
yourself over there as well.

The DVX-100 is a good place to start.

I'm not sure how to introduce myself there. Under which thread?

Greetings one and all ...

I'm a computer programmer, actor, musician, philosopher, who got tired of arguing
with drummers and wanted a way better way to express how I think ...

So I started doing stuff like this:

... and now I'd like to find a way to do more.

Nice stuff, Charlie. You're on to something interesting. Now if
only broadband would begin to fulfill its promise.

Anyway, welcome to The D-Word.

Thanks!

Lot's of work, making these "D-Words", it's especially a problem if
you work on your own (Which I sort of have to do, since it's very
expensive to keep any sort of crew waiting while I'm trying out a new
way to explain an Epistemological concept in front of the camera) ...

I originally thought that being a guy who can "do it all" would be a
big benefit ... and it certainly is for getting things done waaaaay
low budget ... I mean I wrote & recorded the music, the script, shot
the video, acted, did the voice-overs, edited the video, color
corrected and was moving onto audio post ... but now it seems the
powers that be don't believe such a thing is possible ...

Apparently I'm too independent to get any help as an independent!

How the Gods of Irony mock me :(

Hello Everyone!

It's great to have found this D-world (I stumbled upon a link on
the AIVF web site)! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone soon
at the Community, but first I'm going to take a tour of this lovely
cyber land. See you all in a minute,
Erika

We have been involved with the documentary for the past 25 years. I
produce, direct and shoot while Neelima is the executive producer,
researcher and the writer. We both come from the field of journalism
of the 70s, she from print journalism and I began with TV News. since
the early 80s we have just been doing documentaries. We are
available on our web site www.spotfilms.net. Working on documentaries
from India does have some advantages and a lot of disadvantages too.
But on the whole we feel satisfied with what we have done so far and
we continue to look for new projects all the time. I am very keen to
participate in the "Art of shooting of documentary" discussion.
