Hello all,

I am eagerly about to dip my toes in the documentary world and in need of some advice I found this site. I'm sure this isn't the exact place to post questions so I'll end my intro here and figure out where to go next.

Cheers,
James

In reply to Jason Fredric Gilbert's post on Sun 29 Aug 2010 :

Hello Jason! I just signed up to this site and immediately saw your post!
I'm heading to Tel Aviv in a little more than three weeks time shooting a documentary about the Royal Winnipeg Ballet's first tour to Israel since 1975.
On top of the Israeli/Palestinian issue you've picked up on a truly universal theme for your doc – getting the thing funded!
Good luck with your documentary. Getting everyone together again would be amazing, but even just documenting all the reasons it won't happen is enlightening.

Cheers,
James

Welcome, Story Factory. So you know, if you want to register for full membership at The D-Word (and we certainly hope you will) you'll need to do so as individuals rather than as a company.

The "real name" policy counts for everyone – you can only join The D-Word as an individual, not as a team or production company.

Hello! I took the "real name" policy literally and included my middle name. I wasn't trying to sound pretentious ... honest! "Enthusiast" is a perfect description for me. Currently, I'm a Big Fan/consumer of documentary ~ especially when Hot Docs rolls around. Am trying to get a sense of The (doc-making) Life to sharpen my appreciation as an audience member.
