James, Doug, Andy: Thanks for those greetings and all those good words. I'm actually writing from True/False FF, where "Tongzhi in Love" is playing. We were short-listed for the Academy Awards, so we had a v. good shot at a nomination (8 films on the shortlist) but we didn't make the cut. now we're sending around to FF. The 30 minute length makes that hard. I love that length – as a viewer, I love watching shorter work, esp for documentary – but to market it is really tough.

Market it? You pick up the phone and say "Sheila darling, how are ya?"

Hi everyone,
My name is Brett Story, I'm a documentary filmmaker and journalist recently relocated to brooklyn from montreal. I'm currently working on a film about the paralysis of petrochemical workers in an industrial city south of Toronto in response to a major epidemic of cancers – a study, really, in post-industrialization and alienation.... I'm also working on a series of experimental super8 docs about cities. some of them are up at anyway, great to be here, and looking forward to getting to know the forum....

My name is Jennifer Cherry. I teach writing and use videography/photography as an escape from reading student papers. I've decided to stop gazing longingly at all the documentaries being made by others and try to make a short one of my own. I've secured permission from my kids' school and parents to follow the track team this season. I'm kicking around some ideas as to what I want to focus on, so hopefully I'll get it figured out soon--the season begins tomorrow! Most likely, I'll be flying-by-the-seat-of-my-pants this go around. I'm sure I'll be asking lots of questions as I get further into this little venture.
