Thanks, Ben.

Are there any geographical "sub-groups" here?
I'd love to meet more folks in the NYC area.

Not in this forum, Joe. I suggest you join two great organizations,
AIVF - www.aivf.org - and DocuClub - www.docuclub.org. They hold lots
of events where you can meet other NY doc makers.

But welcome to our groovy little virtual shindig.

I'm new--- Steve Olpin. I have been doing this for about 15 years. Now I mostly
do action sports with a documentary style rather than most in my world that do
it with action and music. I have had a docmentary short at Sundance about 10
years ago but have not been back(i've tired--no luck) i'm kind of loosing
interest in film festivals ----but that's is another story---they are sometimes like
high school parties it cool if you invited but now worries if not. ---I not sure how
to do this group i would love to chit chat with peers. I have finally found peers
in Action sports in surf skat snow and moto but never really found a
community in documentary---hope this works out. I shoot video and film and
cut on final cut pro. I own all my own gear and share a edit suite with a brilliant
filmmaker Tim Irwin---I could go on but I will stop and try to figure how to work
inside this group.
thank you,

Actually, the chit chat is in the community area, which you've
already applied for, Steve. Instructions will soon be arriving via
email.

hi, my name's matt osborne, i'm 22 and currently living in Perth, Western Australia,
originally from tasmania, australia. I've recently completed an action sports video and
am about to start a university degree in film and television, specializing in
documentary. I write, shoot, edit and produce and am eager to learn from some
seasoned professionals and maybe even share a bit of young inexperienced
knowledge. My only problem is i might have one to many ideas floating around in my
head???

And you haven't even seen how many folks we have behind the gated
walls of the community, Anthony. This forum is just the tip of the
iceburg! Anyway, glad you found us.
