Hi, I am Peter Berulf

I have been taking courses in documentary production in Silver Spring, MD, and made a couple of shorts in the process. I am going to travel around the northern hemisphere to document the diversity within the Family salmonidae (salmon and trout) and the diversity in the communities, people, and cultures that are invested in the species. I hope to make a film about this but still need someone to work with (if not I just do the travel, film, and post shorts on Youtube)

In reply to Doug Block's post on Tue 15 Jun 2010 :

Sorry for my late replay Doug!
I have been away from my computer. Yes, sometimes that is a good thing :)

No plans yet.. we have postponed the plans for festivals screenings until september due to vaccation at The Danish Filminstitut. However, the film has been sent to Nordisk Panorama, Sheffield and Leipzig.
In regards to to broadcast DR sales are handling all international sale on the film, so far the U.S. is not on the list, unfortunately :(

Hello,

I am an independent Brazilian
film producer and am currently participating on a documentary
project which will involve 31 world cup countries in 31 days.

I am looking for a cameraman, with enough skills to handle a handycam
camcorder, to make some shootings on the 5th July in Slovenia (Lubjlana) and July 11th in Germany (Munich)
based on a script to be provided in advance.
We are still estimating the duration of shootings in each day,
but believe that will take approximately 3 to
4 hours p.d. This person will use my own equipment (camcorder Sony
XR550, full HD), which will be handed to you for shootings at the
time and place of shootings.

I would kindly ask you to let us know if you are interested in
providing one cameraman for us or, if not, if you have a contact
that is willing to render such services for us. I appreciate your
prompt response and estimated costs as we have an urgent need on
establishing a camera man in Germany.

We have a limited production budget so our
payment proposal is no more than 80,00EUR
plus the transportation costs for these hours of work.

We need a prompt response on this, please let us know if you are
interesting or could help us somehow.Please reply to the email addresses copied below

Many thanks and kind regards,

Tatiana Fioratti

Hi all,
I left Boston after 14 years in 2008 and moved back home to Ireland. I had some great opportunities in the US and gained my foothold in the corporate and documentary video arenas before shifting sideways a bit and running the media dept. in a university.
None of the projects I've worked on have ever been "my own", as although I may have directed and edited them, there was a company "feel" (read sappy) that had to be instilled in them.
Although I earn my crust making corporate video, the thoughts of doc videos are what fire me up. I have two projects I hope to shoot between now and winter. Of course, costs are tight as we are in a recession so they'll definitely have a guerrilla bent. I'll shoot on a Canon 5D MKII as that is what I have for my stills work. It comes with constraints, but when you have plenty of time you can work around them :)
When it comes to funding and distribution, I'm somewhat at a loss, so I hope to learn from people here and hopefully bring something to the table as well.
As an aside: Peter and Ben – my masters thesis was on fisheries conservation (from an EU policy standpoint) and I've done additional research on salmon conservation so if you think I could help, give me a shout.
