I'm COO for a Japanese invested IT company based in the Philippines.

One project we are working on is localizing Jounetsu Tairiku, one of the biggest documentary TV programs in Japan. Every week the producers create a 25 minute biography focusing on a different inspiring person, from pianists, to surgeons, from aid workers to Nobel prize winning scientists. The content is really top notch, and we're looking to secure wider international distribution. I'm interested in hearing from anyone who can help us secure wider international distribution.

I am a director/producer looking for a person with a passion for filmmaking  in the NY city area (or Stony Brook)  who has started a film around addiction, compassion and confusion--I have some funding and I have a great camera and have started filming but just a little bit.  I know this is crazy but the goal is to finish the film in a year from now.  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   Thank you! Delaney

I’m writing to share a grant opportunity for documentary filmmakers that may be of interest. NIST, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, is offering a grant of up to $500,000 for the creation of a documentary film about the world-wide endeavor to redefine the kilogram and reboot the international measurement system.

This is an opportunity to create a film that chronicles a fascinating and largely untold story in the world of science. To learn more and apply, visit

If you or your members have any questions, please let me know. Questions can also be emailed to documentary.question(DOT)nist(DOT)gov

Hi docu folks! I'll be relocating from DC to NYC in August for a new job in arts education management in the city and I'm currently looking for housing in Upper Manhattan (Harlem/Washington Heights, Bronx) or Brooklyn (Williamsburg, Bed-Stuy areas). Does anyone have any friends in those areas who are looking for a roommate or even subletter for the Fall/Winter until I find my permanent home? My budget is $1200 or less and I am coming with a small dog named Chuck. I'm primarily looking at rooms available with shared kitchen/bathroom, studio apts, & 2-bedrooms. But, I'd prefer not living with anymore than 2 roommates. If you have any leads or suggestions on housing in NYC, please reach out at Thanks much and look forward to connecting!

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone knew of any Fixers in the campania region of Italy.

I am going to finally start shooting on location for my personal documentary that I have been working on since 2008. I will be leaving for Italy on 7/25 and will begin shooting when I get to my family's land on 8/13. The location I will be shooting in is Ostigliano, near Salerno Italy. Might be a long shot, but I feel like the d-word is the only place a long shot becomes shorter. Any recommendations are welcome. Please email natashamottola(@)gmail(dot)com !

Hope everyone is enjoying the summer season!

Please share this post with your network, we are looking to fill in TWO available spots for our internship, located in the Sunset Park area of Brooklyn.

Much appreciated and best,

Seeking a few Interns to work in post-production on RESISTANCE AT TULE LAKE (, a documentary on the long-suppressed story of Japanese Americans who refused to cooperate with U.S. government’s World War II mass incarceration program, and were segregated in a special, militarized camp for "disloyals."

"Resistance at Tule Lake" is a project of Third World Newsreel (aka Camera News, Inc.), an alternative media arts organization that fosters the creation, appreciation and dissemination of independent film and video by and about people of color and social justice issues. It is produced and directed by independent filmmaker Konrad Aderer ( The project is funded by a National Park Service grant through the Japanese American Confinement Sites grant program, as well as the Center for Asian American Media and the Puffin Foundation.

The Interns will experience all there is to know in making a documentary, and will be supporting us through the post-production phase of the film as we are reaching the finish line - transcription updates, assisting with archival & historical WWII research, rights & clearances, supporting outreach for the documentary via multiple social media platforms, and taking on other tasks as needed.

Though the internship is unpaid, each Intern will gain insight into the process of developing and producing a historical documentary for public television & festivals, with a particular focus on post-production and outreach for the film. He/she will work directly with the director, producers, editor, and other members of the production team as needed, gaining valuable hands-on experience and skills essential to the process. The Intern will have the opportunity to seek mentorship and guidance from the production team regarding his or her personal/professional goals, and to receive college credit and/or a letter of recommendation assuming satisfactory completion of the internship.

The project will be in post-production and outreach from now through Summer 2016. We are looking for Interns who can commit 2-3 days a week, 6-8 hours a day, between the hours of 11am-7pm, on a weekly schedule to be arranged, with some flexibility.

We do not require extensive experience from our Interns, but please let us know in your cover letter and resume of any qualifications or interest you have in these areas:

* transcription ability: good typing and comprehension

* documentary post-production

* good written communication and proofreading skills

* historical research

* social media for films, organizations or companies

* familiarity with Adobe Creative Suite, particularly Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Bridge and Photoshop

 I am looking for an  editor to help with with a fundraising trailer for a feature documentary. I have about 4-5 hours of footage, which needs to be cut into 2 - 3 min trailer. Since I am only preparing to raise money for the project there is no budget yet, and no one working on the project is being paid. I can offer credits, and a possibility of future paid work if there is a match between the candidate and the rest of the team (and if I get the money ; a lot of ifs, I know). A description of the film can be found here . I hope to have the edited reel ready by mid-August. So, if you or someone you know is between the projects and want to help, please drop me a line at lev dot deych at Thanks.
