Great to have you with us, Kimber. I see no one has forewarned you about the cultish nature of our little forum here. Simply draw blood from your finger, smudge it on your computer screen by your member profile, spin 3 times in your chair and shout "D-Word is my heart" all the while.

Sorry, it's been a long day here in 100 degree heat. Any friend of Marj's is a friend of ours.

You catch on fast, Kimber. Now put an image of yourself up where that smudge mark is (cleaning your screen is optional).

I'd be curious to know more about what kind of strategic partnerships you're working on with THUNDER SOUL. Maybe best to answer in our Marketing and Distribution topic, though.

Hi Nishant. I am Michal Goldman – haven't "introduced myself" yet but I'm starting to work on a documentary in a small village in West Bengal outside of Murshidabad – it's about a boy who started his own informal school – and I want to work with an Indian crew. Do you know any camerapeople who really love to shoot hand-held and are good at it? Steady, in-focus, sensitive to the unfolding moment? Do you know anyone like that who lives in Kolkata/speaks Bangla? I like your website by the way!

Hey everyone... I'm producing a documentary called Coexist (www.coexistdocumentary.org) about the reconciliation process in Rwanda in the aftermath of the 1994 Genocide there. I'm looking for information about self-distributing to schools, anyone with information on how to successfully sell a film to schools, please let me know and you will earn my undying gratitude. That may not sound like much, but it is, promise.

[Host advice: Suzanne – no need to double post at The D-Word we read al the posts. I've erased the duplicate in the mentoring topic]
