Quit wasting your time working 3 day jobs that have nothing to do with
filmmaking. You can actually earn money shooting interviews with
people in your community by working with SAGAS.
We launch to the public with a nationwide marketing campaign on August
1st, but we are paying for demo videos nationwide right now to test
our systems, so sign up now!
In case you still haven't heard of us, here's the story:
We are proud to announce SAGAS, a new and exiting company that offers
customers the ability to record personal history video interviews with
individuals and small groups anywhere in America. You can think of
Sagas as the 1-800 Flowers for locally recorded video interviews and
We would like to offer you the opportunity to join the SAGAS Family
http://www.sagas.com/interview.htm . This is a way that you can
develop an additional income stream by working in your free time.
SAGAS was founded by David Hoffman, a veteran documentary Filmmaker
with over 40 years of experience ( www.thehoffmancollection.com). He
has made over 200 films and has won about every national and
international award including Emmy's and the Cannes Critics prize.
Shortly, we will begin promoting SAGAS nationally. SAGAS will build a
national brand, supported by a professional marketing campaign. This
is an independent contractor relationship. We consider our
videographers our partners.
When SAGAS receives an order, we will email the job description to
each registered Videographer that is willing to work in the area code
that the interview will take place. The first response accepting the
job will get the job. SAGAS will be careful not to over saturate the
videographer pool in any given location. This will ensure that
registered interviewers get their fair share of the work. So register
Shooting a Sagas video interview is simple. It is a one hour
interview; the entire call should not take more than 3 hours. No
editing is involved. When the Videographer accepts the job, they
receive the subject's contact information, and a one-page paper from
the customer that describes questions or topics that the customer
would like raised. The shoot style consists of an informal interview.
The videographer will sit in front of (and to the side of) their Mini
DV camera which is mounted on a stationary tripod. No lights are
required. The finished unedited miniDv tape will be sent directly to
Sagas who will pay within three days of receipt and review. Sagas
will pay $250 for each interview with an additional premium applied in
certain areas. Sagas has created a variety of training and self-help
tools, including demo interviews conducted by Hoffman. These should
help you to become a more skilled interviewer.
In two months, Sagas will go live and begin offering its services to
customers across the nation. We will begin promoting SAGAS nationally
so if you are interested in trying this out, please register now at

READ THIS GREAT REVIEW FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES:
NEW YORK TIMES MOVIE REVIEW | 'FLYING: CONFESSIONS OF A FREE
"Talking About Her Issues, Taking Them on the Road"
July 4, 2007
By JEANNETTE CATSOULIS
For most people, one therapist is enough; for Jennifer Fox, a
Manhattan filmmaker in her 40s,
exploring what she cheerfully calls her messed-up self required
a bit more input.
In Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman, Ms. Fox takes her issues
on the road,
soliciting advice from female friends in more than a dozen
In the process, she learns that she is not unique.
Part personal diary, part transglobal slumber party, Flying is a
six-hour exploration of modern
womanhood humming with talk of men. During kitchen-table chats and
women as diverse as an Egyptian journalist and an Indian civil
rights lawyer struggle to
control their finances and their fertility.
Turning narcissism inside out, Ms. Fox uses her own romantic
crisis a rocky impasse
between a married South African lover and a sweet Swiss boyfriend
sometimes hilariously, with women whose choices are far less
luxurious. Her humility
is the films strength; employing a technique she calls passing
the filmmaker shares point of view to create a living
By turns playful, sexy, tragic and contemplative, Flying is an
about sexuality and sisterhood. And if that makes the average
mans eyeballs roll,
all the more reason for his honey to buy him a ticket.
Friends, Our film, FLYING: CONFESSIONS OF A FREE WOMAN, is
playing at Film Forum Right Now! The New York Times called it:
"playful, sexy, tragic and contemplative" and an "addictive soap
about sexuality and sisterhood" and Variety called it
"Miraculous"! To share the love, we'd like to invite the first 50
people who RSVP with the subject heading: FLYING LOVE to
firstname.lastname@example.org to join us for a FREE screening of
FLYING: CONFESSIONS OF A FREE WOMAN. The available screenings

And of course we wouldn't want anyone to fly solo, so you will be
able to reserve 2 tickets, one for yourself and one for a friend.
Please RSVP with: - Your name - The date and time of the screening
you would like to attend - If you would like 1 or 2 tickets held
for you. You will need to arrive at Film Forum 15 minutes prior
to the screening. Your name will be on a list at the Box Office.

T/F presents SUPER AMIGOS and NIGHT MAIL
TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 18 AT 7pm
IFC Center, New York
- SUPER AMIGOS (2007, Arturo Perez Torres) Filmmaker in person
- NIGHT MAIL (1936, Harry Watt and Basil Wright) New score performed live
One film is an eye-popping look at masked superheroes who fight to free an overcrowded Mexico City from tenant evictions, animal cruelty, gay bashing and other social ills. The other is a documentary classic, stripped down and retrofitted with a new soundtrack by Ken Thomson, performed by New York avant-jazz vikings Gutbucket. Both come courtesy of the True/False Film Fest, a group of upstart Midwesterners hellbent on showcasing all that is new,nontraditional and genre-defying in nonfiction filmmaking.
Check out www.truefalse.org for more details
And for IFP participants and D-Worders and T/F alums, we'll be throwing a party afterwards. Hope to see you there.
True/False is great, Paul, and look forward to seeing you again at the event. But we don't double post here at The D-Word, old or new. We'll let you get away with it this one time because we like you but never again.
Busted! And now that I read both public and private topics I actually noticed...
Thanks Doug for the gentle slap on this newbie's wrist-- I guess I got a little too excited about getting in on the launch of the new-and-improved D-Word. This led to me wanting to repackage the True/False announcement in sonnet form, Haiku, free verse, and algebraic formulas, scattered all through the site. But I will now keep those to myself, now that I know this rule. See you next week.

The Times BFI 51st London Film Festival Education Program
17 October â€“ 1 November
The Education Program includes feature and short films from around the world at FREE screenings in cinemas across London.
You and your students are invited to a series of FREE screenings and events taking place during the Times BFI 51st London Film Festival Education Programme.
With a special focus on Documentary, there are several films for audiences interested in exploring non-fiction film.
HOLD ME TIGHT, LET ME GO, is a must see for anybody who works or is looking to work with children with behaviour problems or film students interested in Documentary making. This observational documentary by famed director Kim Longoniotto looks at a boarding school in Oxford for excluded children who suffer severe emotional trauma.
RETURN TO GOREE is a lively documentary following the journey of Senegalese singer Youssou Nâ€™Dour as he traces the history of music from West Africa to countries of the African Diaspora. The film interweaves history, music and investigative documentary styles in an accessible and fascinating portrait.
Director Nick Broomfield again crosses the line between fiction and documentary with his film BATTLE FOR HADITHA, which re-creates the events of a battle between US-Marines and Iraqi civilians in 2005. Renowned for his maverick documentary-practices, Broomfield here uses the fiction genre but his employ of non-professional actors and real situations make for an interesting discussion of blurring fiction/non-fiction boundaries.
All films are facilitated by an education professional and will include Q & A with the director or specialist speaker.

I'm headed to NY next week to shoot my close friend
(and great artist) Lucinda Williams in concert. It's a no budget
shoot - a labor of love. But she's one of the best in the country at
what she does. And she rarely lets anyone videotape her, so this is
an extremely rare event.
I'm looking for camera operators willing to work for little to no pay
- basically for the love of the music. In return they get to witness
one of the best live acts in the country today. These shows also
promise a series of special guests. (I just finished shooting 5
nights in LA - guests included Emmy Lou Harris, Robbie Krieger ((the
Doors)), Mike Campbell ((Tom Petty's band)), Steve Earl and more.)
It's a perfect opportunity for an AC or operator who wants to add
some celebrity footage to their reel. And it's an even better opportunity for
anyone who loves shooting good music. She's playing 5 nights in NY. 2 at Irving
Plaza Sept 29 and 30. 3 @ Town Hall Oct 2-4.
One last thing - we're shooting mini DV. 24p. 16:9 aspect ration.
Hello, everyone. Just wanted to let you know that I am conducting a seminar in documentary filmmaking in Santa Monica, CA the weekend of October 13-14th. It's called The Documentary Film Makers Course and taught by myself and Genevieve Jolliffe, the authors of The Documentary Film Makers Handbook: a Guerilla Guide. We teach from a practical standpoint as opposed to theoretical.
Go to www.script-tonic.com or call 310-941-2168 for more info. We will give $50 off to anyone from The D Word. Call to get a coupon code. Hope to see you there!
Do you or someone you know want to get paid to write about your
experience at the Hamptons Film Festival, London Film Festival or the Hollywood Film Festival? We're looking for someone to be our "Festival Tour Roadie" who can submit some blog entries for
For example we had Robert Ell, the talent booker for Dailies, do the one
It's just a way to get a little local color on the site.
Have a great weekend!
Just took on a new feature film but will be free as of Feb/1/2008.
Sound mixer with experience wants to work on your documentary.
Tamra, do you want anything from DOK Leipsig? Email me if so please. When I go down it will be to concentrate on the target country co-production meetings that last about two or three days. But the week-long festival is celebrating its 50th and has what sounds like a wonderful range of films. Worthwhile getting someone else, if not me, to write about that.
I am looking for a person that would be enthusiast about video editing, operating cameras, Internet video hosting sites, blogs, organization, and communication.
Job would require (Mac) capturing, logging and editing.
Posting video on web on sites like YouTube, MySpace mymovienetwork.com and etc.
Monitoring web sites and communicating through blogs, e-mail and letters.
Burn DVDs and send video files and operate camera on video shoots.
Pretty much doing everything.

I'm not a sound mixer, but I had to say 'hi' since I grew up in Kent. What's up, fellow Buckeye!

London International Documentary Festival 2008
- A Conversation in film
CALL FOR FILMS
PocketVisions is calling for film submissions for the expanded London International Documentary Festival (LIDF) - A Conversation in Film, 2008. The festival is presented in association with the London Review of Books, and with the support of the British Museum. 2008 sees a continued association with The Margaret Mead Film and Video Festival (New York).
The LIDF will run for 6 days between Monday 31st March, and Saturday, April 5th, 2008. The opening and closing night gala screenings and reception will take place at the British Museum. Other venues include the Barbican Centre, the Curzon Soho, the Renoir Cinema and the Roxy Bar and Screen.
The call for submissions goes out to an international field of applicants. All successful applicants will be invited to be present at the LIDF. We are looking to support new and innovative filmmaking talent, and to ask filmmakers to participate in a series of intertwining â€˜conversationsâ€™ to be run alongside the screenings. These â€˜conversationsâ€™ will involve academics, journalists, policy-makers, NGOs, and other cultural commentators.
The LIDF is calling for documentary films produced between January 1st 2006 and December 6th 2007, and is particularly, although not exclusively, interested in films that fall within the following categories:
* Human Rights
* Heritage and the Arts
* Other social and development issues
Submission Procedure: Film-makers can enter their films, pay entry fees and find out how to submit their DVD or VHS preview copy at http://www.lidf.co.uk
Once the on-line submission has been made entrants will receive a confirmation email and a unique Entry Reference Number.
Deadline for Submissions: 6th December 2007
Late entries accepted until 30th December with penalty (see regulations). Films can only be returned if the â€˜return feeâ€™ is included in the submission.
Selected films from the LIDF will be automatically submitted for selection to the Margaret Mead Film and Video Festival, November 2008.
We look forward to seeing your films.

Hi Soo Kim,
I don't have anyone to recommend, unfortunately, but I did work as an editor at an Architecture magazine here in Toronto that takes a huge interest in sustainable architecture. They run a Green issue every year and it's thoughtful. Really parses what we mean by green and doesn't seem to be after the ad dollard like a lot of publications. If you would like me to pass on the name of an editor there for a potential interview, I'd be happy to do so. Best of luck in your search!
