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 www.brettstory.blip.tv. anyway, great to be here, and looking forward to getting to know the forum....

Hi,
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.

hi,
I used to lurk out here a lot,but never really had much to contribute, cause I wasn't working on a movie, and jeez, the regulars here can answer pretty much any question that gets posed. I've been off in the wilderness for a year or so and now I'm working on two movies at once. They are both about music. One is half in the can, the other is a collaboration about a defunct punk band with hundreds of fans that I'm organising over a popular social networking site. The second one is really snowballing out of conrol as I type.
So my days are shooting interviews and using the crap out of he razor tool in FCP, scrambling to pay rent in the bay area, and now spending time with you fine folks here on the d-word.
