Hi, my name is Beth and I live near the Smoky Mountains in the Knoxville, Tennessee area. Good to be connected with all of you doc film folks. I kind of got involved accidentally in doc films, when I visited Russia and got an idea for a story about a little town surrounded by a fence (a nuclear city with the last plutonium-producing reactor slated for closure since the end of the Cold War), but I have always loved docs. When I lived in Southern California, I got a global view of the entertainment industry, since I worked in film distribution, for which I am grateful. The internet has changed things so vastly, that now, as i consider options for distribution, I am seriously considering some kind of alternative way to get my film to a niche audience, rather than go a more traditional route, that aims more broadly. I have many questions, and look forward to hearing from some of you to discover your experiences with this wonderful art and craft we call doc film!

Welcome everybody. Beth, long time no talk. How's the film coming?

Hi Erica, good to hear from you! You remember I was going to screen a trailer with Docs In Progress last fall, but instead stayed in TN to tend to an elderly friend in a health crisis. In retrospect, I think it was not only a good choice for the sake of my friend, but for the film too. During that season last fall, after having failed to get an ITVS grant with a local PBS Lincs partner, I took the generous feedback from ITVS and applied it to the story. Coupled with some other creative and business input, I am looking at making several stories out of a complex one, to simplify and enhance both the personal and political layers. Thanks for asking! How are things with you?
