Hi Doug,

Thansk for the welcome. Yeah I applied earlier today - didn't think I
would get a response until tomorrow!

I'm supposed to be working, well I suppose I am - researching Don
Lenzer's wonderful discussion you guys had about on shooting in the
field etc...what a treasure trove of information.

Yup. Many other goodies archived there, as well. I see you've made
yourself at home in the community discussions. We'll continue to talk
there.

Hi, I am an actress/comedian who decided one day to take my hi8
camera and document the everyday going ons of myself and another
comedian. I've been filming for the last year and am now is post-
production in my kitchen studio(Kitchen Table Films). It's truly a
grassroots project as I am wearing all the hats, producer,director,
lights, sound, catering etc. I am so eager to learn all I can. My
project is called "2 Bees from Oakland."

Sounds like a great idea, Laura. Nick Fraser, who runs the
Storyville doc strand for the BBC, complained to me recently that
there just aren't enough funny documentaries out there. He's someone
you might want to approach when you have a strong sample tape (or
rough cut, if you're not making a sample).

Anyway, welcome to The D-Word Forum. You might want to register for
the private D-Word Community where all the working doc makers hang
out: www.d-word.com/join. There's an extra step involved.

Thank you for the welcome/advice. How can I reach Mr. Fraser?

Don't want to give out his info in the public forum, Laura. But he's
easy enough to find. Google "Storyville, BBC" and you should find it.

Hi, I'm new to this forum.
I tried and failed to register in the community forum anyhow
I'll try again later. I have worked for a couple of documentary
filmmakers and am now about
to venture for the first time on my own.
I am scared of being unprepared but at the same
time am very excited.

I have my PD 150, a wireless mic, my on board mic
and hope to survive this adventure.

If anyone has any magic words of advice
I would really appreciate it.

Welcome, Shirli. Here's your magic words of advice:

Those are good ones!!!!

I am running into stupid technical problems.
I wonder if someone could shed some light

I got two power2000 sony NP-F950 replacement batteris
and they are acting weird. My camera
shows that they are full when they are not....
the running time is not accurate...and I don't
want to take any chances.

Does anyone have any experience with these batteries?
Should I return them and never again
touch non Sony batteries? Some people here
have told me that they are inferior and can cause
damage to my camera...

what do you think???
