To Ben Kempas: click upon the "(dcp)" next to my name in LINK NOT IMPORTED
(above) and follow the links to my rough-draft autobiography. It
would make a nice documentary film (even though I have accomplished
nothing in my life) because of all the interesting things that were
going on in the background.

To Robert Goodman: Thank you for the information.

To All: when I tried to change my e-mail from spam@fredharriman.com
to proccacino@fredharriman.com, I got locked out of cafe utne, and I
had to register again using a slightly different user id. It rhymes
with C3PO, but eho was C3PO?

I am very happy to have found this website...I am a lover of
documentaries and would love to work on them full time, however, not
sure how to break into the BIZ...still happy to be here....

Nice to have you here, Jennifer. Welcome.

How to break into the biz. Phew. There's film school. There's
interning. There's marrying a wonderfully rich and supportive fella.
And then there's going out, buying a digital camcorder and JUST DOING
IT.

Just don't expect to make a living at it :-)

Okay don't expect to make a living at it just yet...well I have a
Master's in English and teach full time at a junior high...my mind is
ripe with things I could document, am dying to, but who where do I
connect with to get my things shown or funded? All that I am very no-
knowledge on....

Jennifer, read up on grants for docmakers. Going the grant route is
probably best for first-timers if you have a social issue your
exploring. Otherwise, you probably have to get it off the ground out
of your own pocket.

Hello everybody,
My dear friend Sarah George, who some of you know, finally kicked me in
the butt hard enough to get me involved in The D-Word, and I'm glad she
did. This looks like quite an interesting place to convene, share
ideas, collaborate, commiserate.
I'm a TV doc producer living in New York. Recently, my company, which
was contracted by MSNBC to produce bios and specials, let go 95% of its
employees, including myself. So I join the ranks of the unemployed.
I look forward to seeing what y'all are up to.
Thanks,
Joel Bach

Doesn't mean it isn't nice to have you here, too :-)

yes - this space needs some activity too. Perhaps a billboard on the
Verazano?
