Hi Everyone,

Newsweek has declared the recession over, but for us documentary filmmakers who are relying on grants and corporate sponsors, it may take a awhile for the good news to trickle down. Here’s tip #6 (one my favorites) for hiring an editor in today’s economy. Click here to read all 7 tips: http://newdocediting.com/hiring-an-editor/

Tip #6 Sync Your Collaboration Styles.

Have you ever sat with an editor in your office, asked them to suggest a line of narration and then been met with a blank look? Before jumping to the conclusion that your editor is inept, consider that she might be a brilliant introvert.

How do you like to work with editors? Do you want to be in the edit room (on your premises) and sit with your editor several hours a day? Or do you prefer to hand off the digital files and leave your editor to work in their own space for a few days at a time? Knowing your collaboration style and hiring someone who synchronizes with it will save you the nightmare of having an unhappy editor resign mid-project.

Deborah Hoffmann, an Academy-nominated editor and director who now works exclusively as a story consultant, preferred to hole up with the footage for a spell without the director breathing down her back. She compares working successfully with a director to making a marriage work. “Some people read self-help books and others stumble along on their own,” says the modest Hoffmann. “I’m more of a stumbler. But bottom line is it’s all about communication, in both cases.”

To delve a bit deeper into the psychology of communication and work habits…

(plants in NY, L.A., FL, IN & NC). We give favorable rates to independents. We also are starting a Media on Demand service where your customers can download your movie and pay on-line (like itunes). Let me know if I can be of assistance.

Hi all! I am a previously-New-York-based filmmaker who just moved to Paris, France. I am currently working on my first feature doc, as well as running a program for a film festival based here in Paris – and I'm really interested in meeting fellow filmmakers here and learning a bit about the French/European industry.

Please reach out to me via D-Word, or directly at sschutzki@gmail.com, if you know of anyone I might like to meet, have any ideas or suggestions for me or are interested in meeting with me yourself! Thanks in advance, looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Filmmakers,

Hope all is well!

A group of local filmmakers have started a coop (if you will) of gear and we are working together to be able to rent out equipment for great prices.

I personally have a EX3 available that I would love to share when we are not using it. We rent it out for $750 a week or $250 a day – comes with memory. It is a pretty sweet deal and a great camera!

Drop me a line and let me know if we can help you get your film done...

Cheers!

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone out there might be interested in coming out to South India to help me with a doc that I'm developing/ shooting on the international eco/ spiritual community of Auroville. I'll be here for the next 1-2 years and would be interested in working closely with someone who is good with ideas and people. I can't really offer much in the way of payment..... I'll rent the house and keep it running. I'll be in Montreal for late November in the event that anyone is interested in meeting up to discuss and explore options.

Looking forward......
