Hi All,

This is a wonderful site – thank you.

I made a personal doc a few years ago, Be Good, Smile Pretty...and have been doing work-for-hire and smaller doc projects and motherhood ever since. I have a daughter who turned 4 yesterday and a baby who is 7 months eating the New Yorker bill at my feet. I am about to embark on a sequel to Be Good – and am duly terrified.

I just found Doug's 10 Rules – and although I think I've broken all of them at some point or other – I am most grateful for the sound advice and will keep them taped to my forehead from here on out.

Thanks again, Tracy

Hola!

I think an introduction is due as it has been ages since I did this d-word thing. It has sure grown! Anyways, I just finished my film EL GENERAL and am coming out of the water after a few years of being totally immersed.

I'm set up to produce and edit in both NYC and Mexico City and I'd really like to take advantage of this cross-border production capacity and be in touch with others who are straddling the border... I'm in La Roma in Mexico City and Clinton Hill in Brooklyn.

Saludos, Natalia

Hola, Natalia! Nice to have you come out from the darkness and into the shining light of the mighty, grown-up D-Word, at long last. And much congrats on all your success (I knew her when, folks)! Will El General be showing in NYC any time soon?
