Hello everyone! My name is Sara, I am an undergraduate student in California. I have done some short film pieces and audio pieces before in the past, and now I'm working on my first feature film. I look forward to "meeting" each of you!

Hello to all. I've actually been a member of this forum for a number of years, although I've never posted (feels like I'm taking a very big step right now..) I do want to congratulate you on creating such a wonderful space – I find it an incredibly useful resource for all things technical, but most importantly motivational. Doc filmmaking gets a bit lonely at times and it's nice to know there's a whole lot of people out there who've been down that road..

I've been working on a project called Cinema Komunisto for a couple of years now (it's been a long and interrupted development and shooting process), and have finally reached the editing stage, so I've re-located temporarily to Los Angeles for the edit. Would love to meet fellow documentary filmmakers in a town that doesn't seem to have much time for that world...

Hi I'm Jeremy, I'm embarking a new project that might interest some of you – it's called Docummunity and is trying to be the first feature length documentary that's been created entirely from user generated content.
We're launching the web site in 6 weeks and are trying to get content that centers around the theme of money – for more information got to www.docummunity.com or email me on jeremy@portablefilmfestival.com

Cheers!

Welcome, Jeremy. Sounds like a great project, definitely of interest to us since we do collaborative projects ourselves from time to time.

And Mila, great to have you come out from the shadows and into the sunshine and light, at last. Not so terrifying after all, is it?

Hey Everyone,

I'm so excited I found this place. It looks like a wonderful community. I'm a documentary filmmaker and I live in LA. My first feature just won the Jury Award for Best Documentary at Japan Film Festival last week. It's a documentary on Japanese whaling: http://www.kujirathemovie.com .

I'm very excited to start reading more posts.

--Danny
