Hi Again,
The Big Equipment Sale is finally happening, this Saturday May 5 at 263 West 38th Street in New York.
We'll be running from 11am to 3pm. Here is a list of the equipment we're selling with the original purchase price. We're looking for about 75% of the original price but are open to negotiating. Come by Saturday to check it out. We'll be taking cash or Paypal, no checks or credit cards.

This gear was purchased for Makers of Memories, a domestic violence awareness organization who got very little use out of it. They no longer need it so you can help yourself with a good deal and help out a good cause at the same time.

Please email me with any questions or just to let me know you're interested in coming.

Thanks all

Laura Heckman

I'm very ashamed to do this again. We will sadly not be having a sale this Saturday after all. It has been an issue getting access to the office where the gear is being held and I feel as jerked around as many of you probably do.
Very sorry all

DC folks:

Local News: Three Neighborhood Films by John Smith at UnionDocs

Saturday, May 12th at 7:00pm. $9 suggested donation.

For more information see:

Between 1988 and 1996, John Smith made three quasi-documentary works that register the disastrous effects of the construction of the M11 Link Road on the filmmaker’s East London neighborhood. While all three function to preserve the memory of this vanishing landscape, and implicitly participate in the large-scale protests that met the highway’s construction, Smith — one of England’s most consistently inventive avant-garde filmmakers — puts the material to various suggestive uses, crafting three very different formal investigations whose unfolding stimulates a profound reflection on memory, time, history, and the lived experience of the city.

John Smith will appear via conference for a conversation with UnionDocs Critical Writing Fellow Colin Beckett.

I have a last minute shoot tomorrow in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and am looking for an intern/P.A. to help. We're shooting on the new Canon C300 which is really cool.

The shoot is actually a Kickstarter video for a very cool new product.

The budget is minimal, but I can pay a bit of cash for the day.

Douglas Blush

New Yorkers: my son (late 20's) will be enrolled in a one-year master's program at Columbia starting this summer. He needs modest single or shared housing in NYC (ideally upper west side) from June 7 – July 31. And, a year's accommodation for three responsible twenty-somethings beginning August 1. Any leads, please contact me offline and I'll forward them. Any general suggestions as to other viable (more affordable?) neighborhoods welcome too!

Hello D-worders,

This is a short documentary that I will be trying to exhibit/submit to film festivals this year. The title is THE GOLDEN SCHOOL, which centers around a Madrassa (school) in Quiapo, Manila. The running time is around 25 minutes. More info of it, here

Any suggestions regarding what festivals to send it?

Doug Block

Raymund, you already posted this in the Festivals topic (a much more appropriate place for it) and we really try to discourage double postings. Trust that people really will find it if it's in the right topic.

Doug Block

No worries at all, Raymund, happens all the time. We're really happy to have you here on The D-Word, and that you've thrown yourself into the discussions so enthusiastically and generously.

Seeking assistant editor for a one and half week gig starting Monday, May 21, near Columbia University in Manhattan.

The position is unpaid, but an opportunity to work with two award winning filmmakers on a very cool film shot in Africa.

The film follows the recent presidential elections in Senegal that started off with a great deal of turmoil and evolved into a fascinating story.

Production is complete and we are editing a 15 minute work sample to use in seeking additional funding for post-production.

Candidates must be smart, have knowledge of final cut pro, ability to pull selects and edit basic scenes.
