I've never heard them called anything else more elegant that actually makes sense, but I'm open to suggestions...

I'll try them out if you want to know they work... ;)

Our Los Angeles-based documentary feature has recently acquired funding and now seeks a full-time producer. The ideal candidate will be able to begin work immediately. Interest in environmental and political issues is a plus, although this is a very personal story as well.

Of course, details of the project will be discussed with those who have a serious interest in participating. Thank you for understanding.

Please forward a letter of interest and a resume to bryankt1@yahoo.com, preferably in .pdf format.

All responses are welcome. I look forward to hearing from you.

Zeitgeist Films will be releasing two great documentaries on DVD this fall. The first, coming out October 28, BILLY THE KID, is the first feature from director Jennifer Venditti and is a wonderful film about a fifteen-year-old kid in a small town in Maine who is both different and wonderfully unique. Info can be found here:
http://www.zeitgeistfilms.com/film.php?directoryname=billythekid

The other, which comes out November 18, is UP THE YANGTZE, a film by Yung Chang that has been a great sleeper box office hit this summer, about people who are affected by the huge public project of China's Three Gorges Dam, and the tourist boats that travel the Yanqtze River. Gorgeously shot and engaging, this is a great cinematic doc. More info is here:
http://www.zeitgeistfilms.com/film.php?directoryname=uptheyangtze

Both are available direct through http://www.zeitgeitstvideo.com or through Amazon, Netflix, or your favourite store.

Thanks!

It may be the night of the first Presidential Debate, but Docs In Progress will be sponsoring its own version of the democratic process on Friday, September 26. So, if you're in the DC area, program your DVRs and head to the Jack Morton Auditorium for our first-ever Trailer Night. More info in the hidden section below.

The DC-area film community and the general public are welcome to join us and the filmmakers as we screen six trailers (from 2-10 minutes each) for documentary works-in-progress. Following each screening, we'll ask for your feedback on the trailers and advice for the filmmakers as they continue to work on the broader films.

Friday, September 26, 2008 from 7:00-10:00 pm

WHERE?
Jack Morton Auditorium
(on the campus of George Washington University)
805 21st Street, NW (21st and H Streets)
Washington DC
Close to Foggy Bottom Metro and garage parking. Limited street parking free after 6:30.

HOW MUCH?

WHAT'S SHOWING?
We'll be screening the following trailers (not necessarily in this order):

Murphy's Gambit: A Chess Hustler's Story

by Sam Hampton
In the midst of the civil rights struggle, a woman moves from Alabama to Upstate New York only to experience a different kind of racism and her own awakening as a civic leader.

Audience members will not only have the opportunity to watch and provide feedback to the filmmakers onsite, but will also be able to show their support at the ballot box. We'll be sponsoring an audience ballot to select the film and filmmaker which is most deserving of a one-hour free consultation from the Docs In Progress team (excluding Sam Hampton from the ballot since he is part of our team).

A big shout out to The Documentary Center at the George Washington University for being the location sponsor for this event.

Media Empowerment & The Developing World

Presented by Barefoot Workshops in the B&H Seminar Space.

Barefoot Workshops is a New York City and Los Angeles based not-for-profit, founded by Chandler Griffin in 2004, that offers short, intensive workshops around the world in narrative and documentary filmmaking.

In this two-hour session, Chandler Griffin will provide an overview of Barefoot’s role in using media in the developing world to help Civil Society Organizations, Non-Governmental & Governmental Organizations, and individuals make change where it is needed the most. Chandler will discuss the media tools and formats used on the ground, how to conceptualize a workshop and ways to get involved. The goal of this session is to demystify the “how can I do this?” and give individuals a chance to learn how Barefoot Workshops does it, ask all the questions and get involved. You will learn that through Barefoot’s international workshops, they offer field placements for international students to assist organizations on the ground with media projects that help them to address challenges in their communities. These “hybrid” workshops result in dynamic learning environments, and open the way for international students to gain valuable field experience, and to learn about issues firsthand. If you are interested in discovering how you can change the world through the power of digital media, come find out how Barefoot can train anyone from vastly different backgrounds and skill levels, how to blend the technical and artistic aspects of storytelling, beginning with the basics of image-making all the way through to post-production to create a “symphony” of images and sound. Barefoot Workshops hopes that by sharing “how they do it”, they will mobilize individuals to get involved and help make a difference with media.

I recommend registering if you want to attend. It's a small space and B&H sent it out to about 30,000 people. I know that 75 people have already registered.

“Airplay: The Rise and Fall of Rock Radio,” a new documentary by filmmakers Carolyn Travis and Chris Fox Gilson of Travisty Productions, takes viewers on a high energy journey through rock radio’s impact on American society--from spreading black music to white America in the 1950s to fanning the flames of ‘60s rebellion to the uncensored personalities and playlists of satellite radio today. Packed with insider stories from iconic deejays of the past fifty years, “Airplay” persuasively links the pioneers of music radio to the seismic cultural shifts of integration, the struggle to end the Vietnam War, and the corporatizing of America.

“Airplay” chronicles the innocent years of AM radio personalities like Cousin Brucie, Murray the K, Dan Ingram, Jerry Blavat, Casey Kasem, Dick Biondi, Rick Shaw and Wolfman Jack, the payola scandal, Top 40, the rise of progressive FM deejays like San Francisco’s Tom Donahue, the takeover of radio music by corporate giants and the new voice of rock radio through satellite. Rockin’ with fabulous radio songs by the Kinks, Donna Summer and LL Cool J, and spiced with famous music personalities including Fabian, Lesley Gore, Pat Boone, Grace Slick, David Crosby, Bob Weir from the Grateful Dead, and Ray Manzarek of the Doors, the film takes viewers deep inside the rock radio phenomenon.

Travisty Productions makes documentaries that dig below the surface of pop culture including “Rock Radio Revolution,” “Rock Jocks: the FM Revolution,” and “Wildwood Days.” Their films, which have appeared on PBS Public Television stations nationwide, have garnered numerous awards and were screened by the Museums of Radio and Television in New York and Los Angeles. Travis is a former news producer, Capitol Hill reporter and was an on-air radio personality herself, for 96X-FM in Miami. Gilson, a former Madison Avenue creative director and global-production executive, also authored best-sellers sold to Disney and New Line studios.
