Hey, my name is Tim Disbrow, I'm a filmmaker from New Jersey. My production company is Iron River Films LLC. I'm currently working on my first feature length doc. It's called "Card Subject To Change." It's about pro wrestling, more specifically the "Independent Circuit" of pro wrestling which could be compared to the Minor Leagues in pro baseball. The film will be complete in early October.

Hallo colleagues from all over! Nice to be here (thank you Ben that you invited me). I'm a Peruvian-Dutch filmmaker, Heddy Honigmann. I live in Amsterdam, where you're welcome (and not only during the IDFA). I have a son I adore, Stefan (he just started to study film) and a friend, Henk, I really love. When I do not film I'm not so happy. This is one of these days :-(
So go quickly and take a look in my website:

My photo will follow one of these days.
Why I read under the space for my photo "enthusiast" ?

Hello All,
I am a wildlife photographer and just completed my 1st Documentary on Snow Leopards. Well, it took almost 18months for me to complete this film.
I do have a day job in IT too.
Hope to learn a lot from here.

Thanks a lot :O)

Welcome Carlos, Ruth, Wilfred, Peter, Jade, Gregory, Tim, Amit, Ted, and anyone else who has entered through the saloon doors of D-Word in the recent past. And a big welcome to Heddy who is my docu-hero. We're not happy either when you are not doing film.

I've seen too few of your films Heddy but O Amor Natural is truly a delight.

Welcome, Heddy. "Forever" is one of my very favorite films.

Welcome Heddy. I've been following you at San Francisco Int'l for years where they always seem to show at least one of your films. "O Amor Natural" is the film I often find myself thinking about.

That's very funny- I was actually watching "Forever" last night, and was going to post about it here on d-word today. I was so moved by your ability to express the humanity of your subjects, and I searched around a bit online about your filmmaking process. I found the following youtube clip, where you say that "when someone is in front of the camera, I have to love them to film them."

Anyways, I'm very inspired by your films, and I'd love to learn more about your filmmaking process if you stick around d-word a bit. Welcome!
