Welcome, Mark. Having just joined the community, you've introduced
yourself in the wrong conference. This is the public Forum (do Ben
and I sound like broken records?).

Go to: <http://cafe.utne.com/partners/bin/motet?enter+The_D-

No, Doug, we certainly don't sound like broken records. Neither do
we put up big bold banner announcements telling people where to go,
nor do we explain the difference between The D-Word Forum and The
D-Word Community in our welcome emails to new members. :-)

Hello, I'm a UK documentary filmmaker interested in personal docs
that evolve over time. Am shooting one at the moment - a story about
becoming a parent. I'm due in 3 months and filming the labour as well
as the months before and after. I already have a two year old and the
film is a humorous look at how my daughter and the rest of us cope
with the arrival of the new baby. Was very happy to read Ross
McElwees remarks in the Art of the Personal Doc. Also working on
other doco projects - one based in Russia and the secret city of
Sarov.
Look forward to connecting with filmmakers through D-Word!

Hello, everyone. Greetings from Vancouver. I was just wondering if
anyone's film has been accepted at Hot Docs yet. I have spoken with
a few members of the Cdn community who are considering boycotting
this year's festival due to its new policy of Toronto premieres
only. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Louise, you should ask this inside {LINK NOT IMPORTED}, our
private forum for professionals. I am arranging access for you as we
speak.

From Mexico. Just finished a documentary of a rock
star(Rockdrigo) that became a myth from the moment he died in
the worst earthquake we had (1985).
We have several projects in hand, one is the special culture
narco dealers have
established, and odd culture that everyday becomes more
popular,
Good to find this place and learn about international docs.

Hi Jorge, yes come and join the d-word community and make this forum
more international. Where do you live? I lived 8 years in Mexico
City. Are you going to use archive materials of the earthquake from
1985? I would like to discuss your project in the d-word community
topic 'projects in development'.

couple of questions regarding treatments:

how long is a documentary treatment typically expected to be?

how detailed should i make it?

any recommendations for doc treatment examples?

thanks.

Doug Block

1. a couple of pages 2. as visual and detailed as you can, given that
you haven't shot it yet and it will inevitably turn out considerably
different than you anticipated (usually for the better) 3. um, there
must be a book out there. if you're in the ny area, you should check
out the aivf library: www.aivf.org

Hi all,

I was referred by the Director of Detroit Docs, a new organization
here in Detroit I work for. We hold an annual doc film fest, a
monthly screening series & director Q&A (starting in April), and
eventually a resource center. Glad to be here!
