DocuClub in June!

Our June DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, June 22, 7 p.m., at DCTV, located at 87 Lafayette (at Walker).

This month, we will screen a rough cut of SPOILS: EXTRAORDINARY HARVEST by Alex Mallis. This short documentary captures intimate portraits of three New Yorkers on a journey through the culture of dumpster diving, illuminating a practice as old as agriculture. The fly-on-the-wall access to these gleaners offers an unvarnished glimpse into one night of urban harvest. For more info about the film, go to: www.analectfilms.com.

Producer/Director Alexander Ramírez-Mallis is a filmmaker living and working out of Brooklyn, NY. His short documentary, THE DENTIST, was selected to play at the 2011 Independent Film Festival of Boston. His collaborative short, MATTHEW 24:12, won best film and best directing at the 2011 International Doc Challenge at Hot Docs in Toronto. He is an avid photographer and greatly enjoys the darkroom. He is an MFA candidate for Integrated Media Arts at Hunter College (CUNY) and a member of the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective.

Our moderator will be Nonso Christian Ugbode, a writer, producer and web/media conceptualist. He works as the director of digital media for the National Black Programming Consortium in Harlem, NY, where he oversees content and style for NBPC's Blackpublicmedia.Org website. He also manages in-house production of content and e-advocacy for NBPC. As a producer and filmmaker his recent works include COLORED FRAMES, a film about black painters directed by Lerone Wilson, currently in distribution and screening at festivals. He received his BFA in Film & Television Production at New York University.

Tonight's event is co-presented with the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective (BFC), a tight-knit community of professional filmmakers in Brooklyn, NY who are dedicated to innovative approaches to filmmaking. The collective comes together through weekly peer workshops to provide sustained feedback and critiques throughout the life of its members' projects. It is the mission of the BFC to inspire groundbreaking films and maximize exposure of the best work from Brooklyn-based filmmakers. To learn more about BFC, please visit: www.brooklynfilmmakerscollective.com.

Asking for a friend.

Anyone have a projector they'd rent for a night? My friend wants to have a screening on his roof on Friday night in NYC. Looking to spend less than a rental house...

Looking for experienced doc shooter in Cleveland or surrounding area

Hello-
First time poster on D-word. Great site.

I work for a PBS doc series based in New York – we’re called “Art21”, and produce profiles on contemporary artists (art21.org, pbs.org/art21.)
I'm looking for a reccomendation for a Cleveland based shooter for a late June shoot we’re doing at Cleveland Clinic. Basically hoping to cover a photography show there – so we’ll be looking to shoot hung artwork (pics behind glass in all likelihood), and the artist moving around exhibit space, interacting with staff/curator.

We’re looking for a doc-experienced, art-friendly DP (HD owner-operator preferable) who we can trust to send out to Cleveland Clinic, deal with talent/location and follow shot list on his/her own (we won’t be sending a producer out.) And most importantly shoot in the Art21 style – think pre-Reality TV, prestige PBS programming style. Thoughtful framings, slow pans, following action or locking off when appropriate, potentially a little dolly work (if time/gear allows.) Overall feel is relaxed, contemplative.

Let me know if any names come to mind. You can e-mail directly at nick@art21.org.

Sincerely,
Nick.
