We're glad to have you here, too, Brad. Feel free to have Jody join up, as well. Then you can procrastinate with us together ;-)

Hi all,

New member here, have lurked occasionally as an enthusiast but decided it was time join in on the conversation.

What finally brought you out of the shadows, Dean?

Nothing profound I'm afraid John, applying as a member was one of those things I was meaning to do and never did, but now that I've finished post on my doc I have some time to peruse the site a bit more and make some friends.

Hello everyone, I just completed my 30 minute short documentary, 'MURDER AT CITY HALL COUNCILMAN JAMES E. DAVIS' STORY'. Its about my beloved brother, slain Peace Activist & New York City Councilman James E. Davis assasinated inside New York City Hall on July 23, 2003. Thus far, we've screened at Brooklyn Academy of Music, & the Schomberg Cultural Center to a sold out audience. On Tuesday, November 23, 2010 we're screening at Tribeca Cinemas 54 Varick St NYC. Feel free to inquire. Blessings & keep up the great work.

Hello,

My name is Jennifer Campbell, I'm 22 (and three quarters) and I am a personal, reflexive, documentary filmmaker. I just graduated with my BFA in film in my home state of Florida, and started my first year of Graduate Documentary production at Hofstra. I'm not liking this cold weather! Also in the last year I documented my journey to find my mother. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXTGRSZt9YA It's unlisted so you'll have to click the link to find it.

I am looking forward to connecting with other documentarians. I think this is an incredibly tool for what we do.

Last night I attended Doug Block's The Kids Grow Up in NYC, and stayed for the Q&A afterward, easily the best night in NYC I've had! If you haven't seen the film, stop reading this and go right now. Doug will there for Q&A today and tomorrow for the 3pm screening as well!!! GO!

YAY DOCS!

Thanks for your praise, Jennifer.

Good to hear Doug's screenings are going well.

Welcome to The D-Word from a co-host who is 37 (and one third).

Geoffrey, welcome to The D-Word.

Very sorry to learn about the loss of your brother. Make sure the film gets seen widely, and please make the best use of The D-Word to promote your screenings.

Hi my name is Cy, I'm a filmmaker from San Diego. I just finished a feature doc called Bush League about four members of a soccer team in Malawi and a short called Indentured about labor abuse on US bases in Iraq. I'm now promoting the films and looking for work teaching film at the post-secondary level. I was also a Peace Corps volunteer in Lithuania and a Fulbrighter there. Some of my work can be seen at cysfilm.com, I'd love feedback if you have it.
