Hello,
My name is Hayley and I am a film, tv and theatre student from York
in England. I'm currently working on two super 8 films i have shot
and have made other amateur digital doc and drama projcts in the
past. Im really only starting out right now, but feel this site could
be a great way to learn new things from more experienced people and
hopefully meet some likeminded souls. Im actually in the states
right now on student exchange and have been making a doc on P-Town in
Cape Cod, a fascinating corner of earth if you dont know it. I have
posted a question or invitation rather to anyone who knows or has any
opinions on Nick Broomfield's work as I am compliing a
biography/analysis of his work as it is a personal favourite to me.
I would grately appreciate hints on where to research and open
comments and opinions.

Looking forward to conversing soon...

Hi Doug

I'm really interested in getting other filmmaker's opinions on the
self-reflexive controversial (if ones views it as controversial?)
work of Broomfield, his interview sytle, his ethical/unethical
approach....his choice of subjects..
Im not too worried about the facts as I can handle that bit of the
research pretty easily I think.

Thanks Hayley

Broomfield's only subject is himself.

Hi everyone,

I just learned about this resource by joining up with DocuClub and
reading the December newsletter. I am very excited that such a forum
exists. My name is Laurie and I have been working on a feature-length
documentary with my partner Nyla for the past 3 1/2 years. It's the
first film for both of us--it's been trial and error; blood, sweat
and tears. We have been working out of pocket (hence, the 3 1/2
years) and are working towards locking picture in early January.
Since this is my first project and I do not have a film background, I
will be using this forum to get some advice and meet some like-minded
people with a passion for film. Cheers!

Laurie
