intimate character portrait about a 60-year-old man in Philly who is a digital-aged Robin
Hood, collecting used computers and giving them to the poor. He's also a master Rolfer
who focuses on children with developmental problems. (Rolfing, in my words, is a type of
deep muscle manipulation that realigns the body along a vertical plane of gravity.)
I've made several scripted shorts in the past, but this is my first time diving into the
documentary pool, and I'm absolutely in love with it. I love the extended commitment I've
forced myself to take and the amorphous nature of it all which will ultimately yield a
touching portrait of a person's soul. I'm having a blast, and I know this is the right place
to come for answers.
the Chicago area, and while we've done some small documentary-style
projects in the past, we're embarking on our first long-form one.
So, we thought we'd join this community to learn and interact with
others in the field.
my name is george oliver. decided to join up to get connected to
other like minds. i'm headed to antarctica for five months and the
thought of putting together a doco struck me. i'm open to
suggestions, ideas, comments and any possibility of collaboration.
please feel free to get in touch should you be interested:
i'm currently editing my first short film (a little sub 10 minute
piece) and i hope to complete that while down on the ice.
thank you for hosting this forum!
I am an independent film director and producer based in Bethesda,
I am currently working on a documentary entitled Technostorks:
Artifical Reproduction in the XXI Century (www.technostorks.com)
I am looking for enthusiastic people with equipment (camera, sound,
lighting) in the DC metro area to shoot a few interviews in
September, as well as people in DC-MD-VA, Philly and NYC to shoot a
couple of events in October. No pay.
I have produced and directed short narrative DV films before, but
never a feature length documentary. So, also need mentoring.
Please let me know.
I think we met a few months ago (didn't you come to the GW screening
of CRUCIBLE OF WAR where you met me and Leon Gerskovic?). I know
Leon is pretty busy right now, but I can post your message to the
Women in Film and Video-DC listserv if you are not already a member.
As far as mentoring, feel free to join us at the next Docs in
Progress workshop in DC on September 14. My colleague Adele Schmidt
and I moderate audience feedback on documentary works-in-progress and
you might find it of interest to hear the feedback given to other
filmmakers to help you think more about your own. More info at
I'm Kevin D Clark, and I'm preplanning to dive into my first
documentary next year. I'm here basically to soak up knowledge. My
primary concerns here is sound (I know NOTHING of how to handle sound
for this, much of it will be on the street in public interviews).
I'm planning on shooting in several places all over America, so my
project is doubling as the great college road trip, I suppose! :)
My name is Douglas McMillan, and I am a Brazilian
writer/producer/journalist/documentarist. I currently work in Latin
America for Japan's NHK, and had stints with the BBC as well. Before
that, I was international reporter for a national daily here, did
stories in Europe, North of Africa and the Middle East.
If anyone thinks I might be of use, drop a line.

community! I was based in NYC for 4 years doing a wide range
projects and films, and I recently came home to Bogota, Colombia
with the hope to tell so many untold stories from here that go
beyond the drugs, the crime, and our 50 year war. Anybody else in
Latin America with the same interests? Gracias!
(soon will add "film maker", hopefully) in Brazil. Latin America is
my point of interest.
I currently work for NHK as producer for Latin America.
Do you have anything on your mind already?

I just wanted to introduce myself to the group. I live in NYC and am currently working on a
Boxing Documentary. I should be wrapping up the shooting in the next 2 months and then
it is time to sit down and edit all of these hours of interviews, footage and photos
together. Just wanted to say hello. I'm looking for a community of people to talk with
about what we do.
