Welcome, Arwen! Lucky you to be in Africa. I love the nature and the colors there (more the plants part of nature than the insects part though!)

I am new to this forum. I have been producing segments on the kiteboarding community in New England and I am looking for help in reaching a Cable Television audience with these engaging films. Also I enjoy editing other people's films, my portfolio can be viewed at DunoyerFilms.com

Hi my name is Ferdinand Casido. I live in the SF Bay Area. I'm a currently working as a producer on my first Documentary Feature called "Two Blind to Ride" which is about two blind adventurers cycling their way from Argentina to Alaska. Along the way they'll stop over at blind schools to tell their story.

Our indiegogo campaign:

This looks like a great website for networking, getting advice and finding resources.

I am already in love with this project, Ferdinand. Looks like a great human story to be told :)

I will share the link to your indiegogo campaign with my facebook friends. Keep us posted (And apply for professional membership if you didn't do it yet :) )

Hey, everyone. Last year I produced Old School New School, a documentary exploring how we can tap into our full creative potential. Features actor Brian Cox, legednary cinematographer William Fraker, jazz great McCoy Tyner and many more world class artists. Check it out, and please share the link with colleagues and friends.

I'm a newbie and I've already learned so much reading on D-Word. Thanks for this great resource and community. I'm a recent graduate of the program at Duke University's Center for Documentary Studies. I'm in post-production on my first film entitled "Granny's Got Game". It is the story of an amazing senior women's basketball team here in North Carolina. These women were pioneers of the game in the 1950s and are still playing now in their seventies! They've been together for almost two decades, so the team has become a support-system and they've become a family. It is such an inspiring story. I'm trying to do it justice despite my inexperience, and I'm glad to have D-Word to ask for advice.

Hi Everyone! I am from New York City – making a film called – Star in the Ring – it tells the close to forgotten story of when Jews DOMINATED the sport of boxing. While this can be seen as a film geared to one group – it really tells the story of so many new Americans. So – it is an important part of Jewish history, American history and sports history. I am proud to say I have received a grant from The Righteous Persons Foundation and am close to finishing all shooting – heading for post. I can sure use help from those that have been through this adventure. Please take a look at my website and trailer:

and get in touch with me with any input. I am going to post questions and look forward to the groups help! Thanks so much!
