Hi, I'm new. To the forums and to documentaries in general.
I've always wanted to make documentaries but I don't really know how
and where to start.

I was hoping to pick up tips and information since I don't know
anyone in the Philippines who could help me. I know they're out
there, but I don't know where.

Well, you have plenty of reading to do here, Jonathan ;-) Take a
look at the archived conferences and you'll get a good head start.
Welcome and good luck.

Wow! Thanks for the prompt response!
I'm reading the archives right now, actually.

Also, I tried to join the D-Community by accident.
I didn't know it was for the experienced film-makers, sorry for the
hassle.

Doug, I will introduce myself at the community.

Regarding the current project, I shot some footage in a town in
Mexico, several years ago. I injured myself in the middle of it and
had to leave. So I am editing what I shot and developing it further.
I am focusing on women and aging. To finish it I have to go back
there.

Dear D-Word Forum,

I'm based in Berlin. Together with Klaus Salge, November Film, we are
producing documentaries. I am also working as a productionmanager for
fictionfilms.
At the moment we want to co-produce with a polish colleague and I
would like to get more information about the Media Plus programm for
the newcomers in the European Market, like Poland. Is there a
different in the regulation?
I just got to be a member of Cafe Utne, the whole system is new for
me, so I have to spend some time with it.
Best Regards.
Brigit Mu

Hi all,

My name is J. Lamar King, but you can call me Jason or J. I am
looking forward to meeting like minded individuals and sharing
knowledge. My background is in cinematography, still photography and
writing, mostly about the people and places of the great state of
Texas, my home. Documentary filmmaking is a natural extension of
that. I've done it for 15 years. In addition I've had articles
published in a few national special interest magazines. I have
completed several college level documentary and filmmaking courses
and even though I'm now over 30, I'm still eyeing that MFA.

I've been working for the last 11 months on my own production
titled "School of Eternalism." It's about Korean imigrant sculptor
Yon Sim Pak who's radical experimentation with brain science and
sculpture materials could set the art world on its ear. I have at
least 12 more months on this project. 16mm and 24p.

Also I'm in pre-pro on the tentively titled "The Devil's Arrow" which
follows a group of motorcycle enthusiasts as they attempt to rebuild
a vintage land speed record setting Triumph motorcycle that was built
in Texas but was almost completely destroyed in a fire at a British
motorcycle museum in 2003. 24p and original film elements.

That's what I like to do, make films about people who accomplish
something.
