I heard about D-Word from a director while chatting with him at his premiere and signed up the next day. A month later, I'm finally introducing myself.
I'm an aspiring doc filmmaker in the Washington DC metro area. A former Air Force and DOD producer-director, I earned a Master's certificate from the Institute for Documentary Filmmaking at George Washington University under award-winning filmmaker Nina Gilden Seavey. I also have an MA in video production. Last year, I produced my first short doc (17 mins) from script to screen, "DC LSIC: A Little Justice Goes A Long Way," for DC non-profit legal aid agency and law clinic DC Law Students in Court. You can view it on my Web site at www.amicusmedia.net. If anyone views it, I'd love some feedback.
I've been wanting to produce another doc, but have lost my momentum since I haven't been able to find a topic that excites me. Life has gotten in the way as well. Am hoping associating with other doc filmmakers will inspire me. In the meantime, I'm a freelance Final Cut Pro editor and taking some home improvement classes at my local community college for fun.
