Hi all,

Doing my first documentary film in Italy in January. The sound guy backed out, and now I'm doing my own sound. Really, I just need a shotgun mike/shock mount (windscreen and cable) and boom pole. While I can't afford to buy my own right now, I'm wondering if anyone has one they can loan me. It would be SO greatly appreciated. I can give you a deposit and return it in perfect condition.

I'm at, located in New Jersey and can pick up in the area or New York or pay for shipping.

Greetings D-Worders,

We are a small DC-based independent filmmaking team, with several award-winning shorts under our belts, seeking a creative editor for collaboration on our first feature-length project: a documentary about the simmering conflict between religious fundamentalists and increasingly open gay and lesbian people in rural and small town America.

The ideal candidate will have experience in weaving together intimate verite footage, interviews, archival clips, graphic animation, and personal narration to craft a fast-paced film that is engaging and informative.

Check out this link for a brief introduction to the project:

Please reply with resume, or for more information, to:

Thank you,

Joe Wilson & Dean Hamer

"Rose & Nangabire," a documentary we are working on, now has an element that may be taking place in Congo. If you know of anyone there – videographers, producer, fixers, etc. Any leads would be great! We need to film a conference for most of January and would love to hire someone who is already there.

You can learn more about the project here:

YES!!! Look for Carlo Ontal. D-worder. Wonderful guy. He is running a videography operation for the UN there. In his soul, a free spirit. I don't have his official email but check here in the People section,if you're a D-worder full member. If not, or if the email bounces, I can relay your message to his private email.

Isn't Carlo in Sierra Leone? Or had he moved on to Congo? He's hit so many hotspots, I can't keep track of him anymore.
