I'm producing a film on a family's fight to keep their son/brother
from dying of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The film takes
place in a Montana town where the family has access to few
resources besides its own to fuel the fight. Because of their
ingenuity and dedication to their family, 5 boys and their mother
have helped the 6th brother live well past the life expectancy for
someone with his disease. The film explores the 6th son's love
of life and the role his family plays in keeping him alive.
Its an hour long piece that has been shot over the course of the
past 3 years on mini digital video. The director grew up with the
family and has special access to their home and hearts. We are
scheduled to wrap photography this summer and are starting to
cut on Final Cut Pro. In the meantime we have a fundraising
drive underway writing grants, creating an informational website
and starting a grass roots newsletter to keep donors aware of
the project. Montana PBS is interested in broadcasting the film
when it is done.
I'm new to the documentary world after spending years in
animation and television production. I'm looking forward to
meeting everyone and learning as much as I can.

you some help and support.
I found this site a couple days ago and wonder why it took me so long.
I signed up, originally, as my boss, Larry Baker, but it seems that
I'll likely have more opportunity to keep up to date with what's
going on here. Larry is a Sound Designer who has been doing audio
post production for documentaries (and other projects) for nearly 4
I work with him at his studio, Headroom Studios, doing marketing,
research, general administration stuff, etc...I'm hoping to pursue
some writing and producing in the near future as well. We both have
a love of documentaries and if we had our way, we would work
exclusively in that area.
It seems there are a lot of talented people in this group with
interesting projects and great ideas. Can't wait to get to know some
of you better...
I work for a tv station in Northwest Missouri, at the moment I am
working on a behind the scenes doc following a local heavyweight
boxer, Rob Calloway. Possible fight on HBO before Christmas if he
beats his next opponent June 28. Fingers crossed and Las Vegas here
we come !
I'm Danielle Beverly, new to New York City via San Francisco and
Chicago. I've been working mainly for PBS since 1997. I'm in the last
months of production on my first feature documentary. The film follows
a 35 year old bipolar artist/chef/bulimic who destroyed her stomach and
esophagus in a failed suicide attempt, and is currently rebuilding her
life. I've done all the camera and sound on the film, as well as
produce it. Several doc makers suggested "d-word" as an excellent
resource, and I'm happy to now be part of this community.
