Hi! My dear friend, the illustrious Danielle Beverly, has been telling me for awhile now that my life will be dramatically improved by getting involved with the Dword. Now's the time! After a few years absorbed by producing my first indie doc called "A Dream in Doubt," I'd love to join the community. "A Dream in Doubt" was funded by ITVS, and had the fortune of airing on Independent Lens last May and was a part of Community Cinema. I'm happy to share any lessons from this experience and others. I've been involved in doc production for over a decade and have worked on lots of types of projects, for various broadcasters and organizations. I also work as a content and outreach consultant at Reframe (Tribeca Film Institute's digital distribution site). I'm developing some ideas for next films, and am thinking of focusing on a short.

Howdy, Tami. Your life will indeed be dramatically improved shortly. Your IQ will increase at least 10 points, your teeth will get whiter and your breasts will, oh never mind. But the good news is The D-Word will be dramatically improved by your presence, too. Welcome aboard.

Thanks for the welcome and for putting so much effort into this site. If you weren't behind bars, I believe I could actually test this theory about improved breasts. Alas, I'll have to wait and see how things go.

what doug failed to mention is that breast size only increases in D-Word males who sit at the computer all day eating chocolates and fried food...

Oh well, I guess the ladies in the house can hope for the IQ boost then! Nice to meet you Christopher.

Hi,
My name is Piero Menor, from Madrid, Spain. I have just moved to NYC to find a position in the industry.
I´ve been working a lot during the last years in different non-proffesional projects including a documentary about my road trip around the USA. I also directed a tv show which was awarded with an Emmy to the Best Student Production.I am willing to work as soon as possible in NYC, and if its something very interesting, its posible even to work for free. Nice to meet you all.

Greetings documentars,
I'm returning to d-word after a little hiatus and am happy to be among so many hard working professionals. I'm in Chicago now, but coming soon to a city near you.
If anyone is connected to events with social justice entertainment, look me up. I'm working on some things in Chicago, Arizona, California, NY with musicians/artists/activists/filmmakers...and would love to connect with people in other cities.
Also, we have a feature that aired on POV and ran the festival circuit, "Standing Silent Nation", if anyone has any educational outreach connections (university/high schools), we would love to hear from you.
Thanks and hope to connect soon, suree
