Nadeem, Charles, Sharad, welcome to The D-Word and all the best with your projects.
I am so happy to have found this community! I'm currently working on my first ever doc about contemporary artists in Cambodia. Please feel free to check out our trailer here:
I am looking for feedback, friends, advice on applying to ITVS, anywhere else that might be a good fit for the doc...people who want to put me in touch with Angelina Jolie (kidding, kinda not kidding)...ya know.
We're equally happy that you found us, Alta. You might want to check out the Funding topic, as well as do a search for ITVS since we've talked a lot about applying to it here.
As for Angelina Jolie, hmmm...

Interesting characters in that clip. Nice.
Hello everyone! I recently joined and am glad to be with you all. I'm an avid documentary and indie film fan. I'm one of the founding members of the IDA back in 1982. Since then, my career has been extremely good to me in music. Besides music production & our music library, I parlayed my business into becoming a partner in an audio post facility (Media City Sound) here in Studio City. We do music and audio post for TV & Film & Media. We love documentaries & indie films. Please come for a visit & tour. We are very budget friendly and superpros at what we do. Here are our sites: www.mcsound.com and www.themusiccollective.com. Contact me at scott(at)aecgllc.com 818-508-3300
Hey D folks,
After making several documentaries independently, I'm really happy to be here but equally ashamed it took me so long to join. I truly hope to make up for lost time and to be of service.
Looking for a very professional videographer to shoot a theatre in Palo Alto, CA next week. If interested please send rates and reel links to: email@example.com
Welcome, Scott and Pepe. Ala, we welcome you, too, but your post actually belongs in the Classifieds topic. This is just a place to introduce yourself, which we hope you'll do.
Ooops! I didn't know it, thank you Doug for letting me know, I'm gonna replace it to Classifides
Hello all. I'm a filmmaking student at a local University, slowly carving my way through its program. I'm apparently considered a "mature" student, being that my classmates are generally younger than my daughter, who is a few years out of college. I learned about this forum from a D-word member just a few days ago, during my visit to the Silverdocs Film Fest. I'd like to thank that person again, but can't recall, this morning, who that was. So, thanks, whoever you are.
My primary filmmaking interest is with docs. I come from a commercial photography background, and decided, when embarking on this journey, that the college classroom, infused with the energy of youthful classmates and the professional experience of its teachers, was a good place to begin. So far, so good. My first doc, "Breaking Boundaries: the Art of Alex Masket", a short film about an artist with severe autism, has made festival rounds (not Silverdocs, sadly, but did get a CINE Golden Eagle) from early 2010 until recently. If interested, it's currently online. Here's the two minute trailer:
A link to the full version should also be on that page along with a few other learning experiences. Looking forward to discussions & sharing information.
Thanks Rob Rooy for alerting me to this forum....had forgotten who done it earlier, my brain finally kicked in ;-)

I believe that this is my first posting here – after having been a member for sometime and simply relying on the updates. Time to dive in.
I am a New Zealander, based in Japan for the last 15 or so years (and shortly migrating to the States).
Have worn a few caps thus far – local fixer, editor, video-journalist, cameraman, director. But documentary's where my heart's at.
I'm currently heavily ensconced in making an indie documentary called "Doglegs" – about the underground disabled pro-wrestling scene in Japan.
Hello, one and all!
www.doglegsmovie.com (underconstruction, but should be up in a few days)
Feeling my way around here, but so far I love what I see – a vibrant online community.
As a not-for-profit distribution organisation promoting quality films, we're always on the lookout for short documentaries that inspire young people in schools to engage in deep learning. I'm happy to provide a list of topics of particular interest.
'Short' means really short, ie. under 11mins, but we have plenty of examples where filmmakers have cut short versions (not trailers) of feature-length work to use as promotion or try-out for larger work.
Get in touch with me at any time – richard at campfire.org.au
or explore the campfire site to see the work we do. Campfire is a passion that grew out of my hobby and love of the documentary form (and graduation from film school back in '97... but that's another story for another day!)
Doug or any host, can you tell me what the most appropriate place to say "we're looking for x, y & z?"
Thanks for hosting a great site!
Heath & Richard – you've certainly found the right place! Welcome aboard The D-Word
In reply to Richard Leigh's post on Fri 6 Jul 2012 :
Richard, the Public and Professional Classifieds topics are probably your best bet. They're the only topics where we're okay with double posting, too.
Thanks John & Doug.
I'll get that public & pro classifieds topic list happening soon.
Again, thanks for the welcome & the service you're doing here :)
Hi folks, my name is Adam Stafford, a few years ago I directed a short called The Shutdown, which was quite well received. Since then I've been a bit erstwhile from the film community, making a new short (see My Films) that's taken me literally 3 years to get funding for and some busy musical projects. But I'm here to re-engage with the Doc Community. Thanks.
Good to have you here, Adam. Welcome back to filmmaking, in general, and welcome to The D-Word.
