Welcome, Adrian. From my informal calculation, you posted from LA around 5:30am your time. Very impressive. You already understand that The D-Word is either the first or last thing you should do every day (or both!)

Anyway, good luck with your rise to mogulhood and glad to have you aboard.

Hello everyone,

I teach documentary production at Indiana University and recently completed my first feature length doc "My Vietnam Your Iraq" that tells the stories of nine families with a parent that served in Vietnam and a child that served in Iraq. www.myvietnamyouriraq.com

Looks like you've acquired quite a bit of teaching experience along the way, Ron. What drew you to make the Vietnam/Iraq project?

I'm a Vietnam veteran and when the war in Iraq started it brought back memories of my military service.

Sounds like a very strong motivation to make the film.

Hello,

I am Shlomo Hazan, from Israel, a filmmaker (directing, editing, producing, waterboying) and an editing teacher.
After some casual swimming beside the "good ship D-Word", as Doug said above, it is time for me to climb aboard and join the fun.
Glad to be here.

Climbing aboard? We hope you're not a pirate! (Too much about them in the news recently, I guess.)

Welcome on our ship, Water Boy! :-)

Hello all. I'm a publisher and now hopefully a film maker as well.

I have traveled the world writing and interviewing people + places + stories over many years and now would like to capture some of the same on film.

My first of a short series will be filmed in Edinburgh, August/September,

I appreciate D-Word... it's been great reading the posts and I look forward to being a part of this community.

Cheers G.
