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.

FLAHERTY NYC PRESENTS:
Francisco Serrano's SEVA LIVES

MONDAY, JUNE 13, 7:30 PM, ANTHOLOGY FILM ARCHIVES
32 SECOND AVE, NEW YORK, NY, 10003
$9/GENERAL $7/STUDENTS & SENIORS $6/AFA MEMBERS

Filmmaker in person for discussion!

Considered one of the best Puerto Rican films in recent years, SEVA LIVES offers a post-modern look at the history and impact of the U.S. invasion and occupation of the island.

When a fictional story reimagining the U.S. invasion was published in a widely-read newspaper in Puerto Rico, its readers believed it as fact. But like the infamous chaos-inducing Orson Welles radio dramatization of the War of the Worlds, the story was utter fiction simply taken as reality. The story contained letters from a historian who unearthed evidence that the United States did not enter Puerto Rico peacefully in June, as history dictates. Instead, the Americans invaded through a town named "Seva," massacred its people, and covered it up by changing the town's name to "Ceiba," its current name.

This story, as the newspaper tried to make clear, is fiction. Yet readers around the island believed it and a scandal ensued.

SEVA LIVES redefines Puerto Rican history in this update of the classic Puerto Rican short story "Seva." It mixes fictional elements with actual archival footage and real interviews with historians to discuss the significance and impact of the short story today. But, most significantly, SEVA LIVES deconstructs the sociopolitical debate of the facts and myths surrounding the history of Puerto Rico and explores the issues that arise when fiction meddles with recollections of the past.

Organized by Cinema Tropical, this screening celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 7th Robert J. Flaherty Seminar, held in Barranquitas, Puerto Rico.

===Bio===
