I'm producing a video for an international development organization, and I'm looking for talented filmmaker crews working in or near the following international locations: Nepal, Liberia and the DRC. Anyone working in those regions, or have recommendations of people who are?
In reply to Melissa Hibbard's post on Thu 23 Jul 2015:
Sorry, no DP or sound recordist to recommend. But I can recommend a translator. I just started editing work on a Japan project, and the producer loved the translator who was there in the field with her. He's a Japanese-American guy now living in Tokyo, fluent in Japanese. And he's got experience as a producer on lots of shows, including documentaries. Taro Goto. http://www.tarogoto.com/about/

Can anyone in the New York Cirty doc community recommend a good bookeeper familiar with handling a payroll service and film budgets? Please send names / contact to email@example.com Thanks!
Does anyone have any leads on an individual or business who'd be open to renting out a Sony FS700 for a day in late August? It doesn't have to have the 4K upgrade.
As an update to my last post, I'm looking for that FS700 somewhere in the Seattle area.

Hi Ethan- If a Sony FS7 is an option call me 212-363-0166
My name is Ellie Bernstein, big track record for doc films need a Producer/advocate for a completed film on Hebron,Palestine (narrated by MArtin Sheen) and a new one on a cult in NYC. I was a member for 20 years. Need support, financing, a pat on the back. Look at my website-I can pay for the right person. If you are curious we can talk. I am located in ALbany NY but it can be long-distance with the right person.
I am producing a film about the gay marriage movement and wondering if anyone has any leads for a great editor.
The film, directed by Eddie Rosenstein, follows Evan Wolfson, 'the architect of the same-sex marriage movement' and Mary Bonauto, the attorney who argued the marriage case before the Supreme Court as they prepare the country and the case for a major paradigm shift. Meanwhile, we are telling the story of the 30 year journey, through the courts and public battles, that went from state to state until it arrived on the steps of the country's final arbiter.
The DPs of the film are Bob Richman (My Architect, Paradise Lost, Metallica), and Claudia Raschke (Particle Fever, Mad Hot Ballroom).
Let me know, thanks!

Sent you a msg/recommendation. Good luck!

Sari Gilman is a great editor. She's already edited one great documentary about the gay marriage movement ("The Campaign") but maybe she'd be up for another.

In Vino Veritas: Secrets of the Intoxicated Life -- Open Call for Submissions
Drugs have been used to access the spiritual dimensions of existence in many cultures since the dawn of civilization. Artists have likewise sought to escape the confines of the rational mind through the use of substances that expand the senses, alter perception, and suspend the repression of the conscious mind. And others, eager to subvert the conventions of prevailing cultures, have hoped to achieve liberation and even enlightenment by modifying how they think. In Vino Veritas: Secrets of the Intoxicated Life will explore the heights and depths of consciousness to reveal truths inaccessible to the sober.
In Vino Veritas: Secrets of the Intoxicated Life is seeking submissions of short films (five to ten minutes in duration) about how getting wasted can elevate the spirit, enhance our creativity, make us wiser, deliver us onto freedom or otherwise improve the human condition. All formats - documentary, experimental, animation, and narrative film – will definitely be considered.
About the Secrets series: Believing that cinema allows us to see what they eye cannot, the Secrets series aims at divulging mysteries. This will be the third installment of the Secrets series. The first, Secrets of the Deep: Dreams on Film, premiered at Not-a-Luncheonette (Brooklyn) in June 2014, with five participating directors: Alice Cohen, Bradley Eros, Leslie Hodgkins, Joel Schlemowitz, and Jeffrey Wengrofsky. The second, Secrets of the Insect World, premiered at the Gene Frankel Theatre (24 Bond Street, Manhattan) with eight directors: MV Carbon, Bradley Eros, Jeff Frumess, Art Jones, Irene Moon, Lary Seven, Jeffrey Wengrofsky, and Mike Wilson.
Curator: Jeffrey Wengrofsky

DEADLINE for submissions: September 30, 2015
Screening will be in New York City in 2015.
