PAID WORK - We are looking for a[nother] (Cuban) Spanish to English translator to work on a prestigious feature documentary (this is translating shot material, not location translating). https://www.facebook.com/voicesofthesea

Not only is it a chance to get a credit, experience on a fab high profile project, but this is paid work. Suitable only for somebody who is looking for the experience and/or credit, if you are motivated 'only' by the money this isn't for you. If you are interested, or know somebody who might be interested, please PM me for details.

I am a director/producer looking for a person with a passion for filmmaking  in the NY city area (or Stony Brook)  who is interested in mental health issues and would like to become a  partner in making a new documentary on mental health issues. To see some of my past films, please go to www.unlistedfilm.com, www.hiddenpicturesfilm.com and www.screenagersmovie.com

I have some funding and I am just now looking for story ideas. I know I enjoy filmmaking much more when i have a partner and thus I thought I would send out this post. I would be interested in someone with a lot of experience but also someone who does not have a lot of experience, such as a person recently finishing film school. It is all about the creative chemistry. If you can take a look at my sites and then send me an email and a CV (or website link) that would be a great start. Please send to delaneyruston@gmail.com   Thank you! Delaney

Hi all, I'm looking for an Arabic translator who could transcribe about an hour of footage shot in Algeria, and translate it into English (or French, either will work). I also wanted to ask if someone knows what's the going rate for a job like this? In Serbia we calculate by page (1800 characters), is that how it's done elsewhere? Thanks

I wish I could help, Mila, but Algerian Arabic is very tough for me to understand.  I can share this post on FB for you if you'd like - in case any of my friends has recommendations. I don't have a good idea about the rates though.

We just deleted a spam announcement and promptly deleted the poster's D-Word Fan membership.  We've been extremely diligent about keeping out the obvious spammers but every once in a while someone eludes us and posts.  Note that the Topic Cops will immediately take the same action, so there's really no point in spamming here.  Just saying.

( Cutting a short doc thing I shot in India on human milk banking, will swing by when I have something to show. Headed to Congo in February to shoot, will swing back by when that firms up.)

I bought film badges for SXSW and cannot attend. Badges cost $650. I will sell for $550. Why not save $100? I will take care of transferring the badge to your name with SX to make it official. jennifer[at]farbeyondfilm[dot]com

Docs In Progress has two webinars coming up:

Wednesday, February 10 from 12:00 noon - 1:30 pm (east coast time)
A budget is an important planning tool for documentary films. It is also a necessity if you are planning to fundraise for your film. Far from numbers alone, the budget is another way of telling the story of your film.  In this session with Docs In Progress Executive Director Erica Ginsberg, we will go over the elements which make up a documentary budget, different approaches to budgeting, and how to keep your budget realistic but flexible so that it can adapt to the realities of filmmaking. The first 2/3 of the webinar will be presentation. The final 1/3 will be for participant questions. This Wednesday Webinar is being offered as part of a series aimed at filmmakers who are either new to documentary filmmaking altogether or who may have some filmmaking experience, but are new to the world of independent documentary filmmaking.
More info at http://docsinprogress.org/ events/330/webinarbudgeting/


Wednesday, February 17 from 12:00 noon - 1:30 pm (east coast time)
As much as we’d like to think we will make back all we put into our films in distribution, the reality is that very few independent documentaries make a profit on the backend. If you want your documentary to be more than a labor of love or an expensive hobby, you will probably need to raise funds along the way. In this session with Docs In Progress Executive Director Erica Ginsberg, we’ll go over ways to plan fundraising for different stages of the film. What goes into a grant proposal? Is crowdfunding right for you?  What do funders expect? The first 2/3 of the webinar will be presentation. The final 1/3 will be for participant questions. This Wednesday Webinar is being offered as part of a series aimed at filmmakers who are either new to documentary filmmaking altogether or who may have some filmmaking experience, but are new to the world of independent documentary filmmaking.
More info at http://docsinprogress.org/ events/331/webinarfundraising/   


And for those of you in the DC/MD/VA area, you may also find these face-to-face programs of interest:

This coming Monday, February 8 is the WIFV/Docs In Progress Roundtable in Silver Spring. As an antidote to the documentary filmmaker working in isolation, it’s a brainstorming, networking, and support group all wrapped up in one.  This is an opportunity to meet others in the documentary community and share latest successes, challenges, and tips on documentary filmmaking. We will also give some feedback to a few pre-selected community members on their trailers. This event is free and first come-first served. It takes place at the Docs In Progress "Doc House" (8700 1st Avenue in downtown Silver Spring). Doors open for networking and light refreshments at 6:30. Program begins at 7:00.
More info at http://docsinprogress.org/ events/339/roundtable/

On Thursday, February 11 at 7:30 pm, join us for a free screening of DOEVILLE by Kathryn Pasternak (who will be there for a Q&A after). This is taking place at the auditorium of the Takoma Park Community Center (7500 Maple Avenue Takoma Park, MD). No advance tickets required although you can RSVP on Facebook or Meetup.
More info at http://docsinprogress.org/ events/344/doeville/

Plus lots of other workshops, classes, screenings and more. Check em all out at http://www.docsinprogress.org
