Hello-
Looking for professional audio (for video production) workshop/classes in the New York area. Ideal would be something slanted towards documentary field recording, esp for HDSLR workflow, for someone with basic audio operating experience. So not for a total novice, but someone who learned on the job and so doesn't have a very good handle on the fundamental whats/whys/hows.
I know about DCTV in Chinatown. Any other suggestions would be great.
Thanks, Nick.

DocuClub in November!

Our November DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, November 16, 7 p.m., at DCTV, located at 87 Lafayette (at Walker).

This month, we will screen a rough cut of Brasslands by the Meerkat Media Collective. Once a year, a tiny Serbian village explodes with brass cacophony and riotous celebration as half a million fans descend upon Guča, the world’s largest trumpet competition. On the 50th anniversary of the festival, an unlikely American brass band undertakes a journey to the source of their inspiration, barely a decade after NATO bombs rocked Belgrade. The citizens of Guča prepare for the oncoming hordes with a mix of national pride and nervous energy. The older generation has lived through world war, socialist rule, national fragmentation, and ethnic cleansing – all of which has given way to a festival at the center of a evolving national identity. Middle-aged business owners hope to capitalize on a growing festival and huge influx of cash. The youngest watch the best trumpeters in the world play their country’s traditional music; some yearn to play on that stage, while others throw on their headphones to pump Metallica and Lady Gaga. Brasslands explores the moment when cultural appropriation confronts its origin – in this war-scarred landscape, disparate societies find common ground in a joyous, deeply transcendent music that leaves no ear unaffected. For more info about the film, and to preview a trailer, go to: http://brasslands.com/mkm-collective.

Meerkat Media Collective is a self-organized community of media makers committed to creating innovative and thought-provoking films through shared authorship. Since 2005, they have produced and distributed over twenty short films and two features. Their first feature documentary, Stages (2010), won Best Documentary and Audience Award at the HBO New York International Latino Film Festival. Work of the production team of more than fifteen meerkats behind Brasslands has been broadcast on PBS, HBO, The Discovery Channel, ESPN, MTV and Arté; streamed online via Time Magazine and The Onion News Network; and featured at festivals internationally, including Cannes, Silverdocs, Nashville Film Festival, Media that Matters, Locarno Film Festival and Sheffield Doc Fest. Learn more at meerkatmedia.org.

Our moderator will be filmmaker Kelly Anderson. She is an award-winning independent producer and director of documentary and narrative films. Her most recent production is Never Enough, a documentary about American’s relationship with their material possessions, which won an Artistic Excellence award at the 2010 Big Sky Documentary Film Festival. Other recent directing work includes Someplace Like Home, a documentary about the redevelopment of Fulton Mall in Downtown Brooklyn, which she made for FUREE (Families United for Racial and Economic Equality). In 2004, Anderson produced and directed (with Tami Gold) and edited Every Mother's Son, a documentary for ITVS about mothers whose children have been killed by police officers and who have become national spokespeople on the issue of police brutality. Every Mother's Son premiered at Tribeca Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award, and had its broadcast premiere on PBS’s P.O.V. series. Gold and Anderson also made Making a Killing, a half-hour documentary that addresses the marketing practices of the tobacco industry in the developing world. Making a Killing premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival, was screened for delegates at the World Health Organization and aired on television in Nigeria, Serbia, Lagos and Vietnam. In 2000, Anderson completed Shift, a one-hour drama for ITVS about the volatile relationship between a North Carolina waitress and a telemarketing prison inmate, which premiered at the Rotterdam International Film Festival and aired on many PBS stations. Her other documentaries include Out at Work (with Tami Gold), which was screened at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival and was shown on HBO. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Film and Media Studies at Hunter College in New York City. Learn more about her films at: www.andersongoldfilms.com.

If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to docuclub@artsengine.net.

DCTV Presents
OUTSIDERS LOOKING IN
Co-presented with VSM Productions and DocuClub       
 
Mon, 11/07/2011 – 7:30pm        
DCTV, 87 Lafayette Street, NYC        
 
Join us for this special evening of film, art and discussion on the representation of veterans in art and media:

Screening of Hidden Battles with Director Victoria Mills
How does killing change the person who pulls the trigger? Hidden Battles is a dramatic and deeply personal documentary film about the psychological impact of war on five soldiers. Representing a cross-section of nationalities, gender, class and race, these soldiers unveil intimate memories about the central act of combat — killing another human being — and how they create a life for themselves afterward.

Victoria Mills is an award winning documentary filmmaker as well as a full-time practicing psychoanalyst. In conjunction with the films, she leads workshops with universities, national women's organizations, and grassroots community groups. As an analyst with 25 years experience, Victoria has worked extensively with people of different cultures who have experienced trauma, including those who suffered from 9/11. She is also is a training analyst and on the faculty of the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis, and supervises graduate and PhD students at several universities.

Slideshow of Soldiers' Stories from Iraq and Afghanistan with Artist Jennifer Karady
Jennifer Karady is an artist whom has worked with American veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for the past four years to create staged narrative photographs that depict their individual stories and address their difficulties in adjusting to civilian life. After an extensive interview process with the veteran and his/her family, Karady collaborates with the veteran to restage a chosen moment from war within the safe space of their everyday environment, often surrounded by family and friends.

Reading from Sand Queen with Author Helen Benedict
Helen Benedict's sixth novel, Sand Queen, is culled from real life stories of female soldiers and Iraqis, offering a story of love, courage and struggle from the rare perspective of two young women on opposite sides of a war. Benedict has won three major awards for her work on soldiers: The 2010 Exceptional Merit in Media Award from the National Women’s Political Caucus, The Ken Book Award from the National Alliance on Mental Illness for 2010, and the 2008 James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism. She has testified twice to Congress on behalf of women in the military. She is a professor of journalism at Columbia University.

Discussion with Scott Thompson
Scott Thompson is the Director of Social Dialogue and Training Initiatives for Intersections International, a New York based NGO that works at the intersection of communities in conflict. His expertise is in programming for returning military persons and civilians, utilizing psychological healing processes to help heal the rift between these groups. He oversees Intersections’ Veteran-Civilian Dialogue project, a community building effort for returning soldiers to provide meaningful tools of reconciliation and healing.

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for someone who could lend/rent me a camera, tripod and mic for one day in Cleveland on Thursday. I will be travelling there to hold a guest lecture on the invitation of Prof Daniel Goulding, whose book The Yugoslav Experience on Yugoslav cinema, was a great inspiration to me in making Cinema Komunisto. I was thinking of using the opportunity of my visit to shoot a brief interview with Prof Goulding for the Cinema Komunisto website and would be very grateful if there's anyone in the Cleveland area who could help me find a (very basic) camera to do this. I can offer tickets for the screening of Cinema Komunisto at the Cleveland Museum of Art on Wednesday evening in return.

Affording Progress: A Community Response to Gentrification by Nuala Cabral, Jaisal Noor and Thanu Yakupitiyage
Community activists and residents of Prospect Heights (Brooklyn), expose the fears and hopes for their neighborhood, sending a local and universal message about the difference between development and affordable progress. This short documentary is a Third World Newsreel Workshop production directed by Nuala Cabral and produced by Jaisal Noor and Thanu Yakupitiyage.

Clandestined by Claro de los Reyes
In this narrative short, a young man finds out that there are some things in life too hard to escape.

Walking with FUREE by Akoma Miriam Perez
Post 9/11, Wanda Imasuen, a Harlem raised believer in the American Dream, found herself jobless and going to the welfare office. The humiliation of her treatment and the persistent efforts of the women at FUREE (Families United for Racial and Economic Equality), led Wanda to become an activist and speaker and to recruit other women to empower themselves.

New York is Killing Me by Regina Eaton, Dalila-Johari Paul and Jaira Placide
New York City streets and the people who walk them are filled with all kinds of dreams and potential. When NYC calls out people flock, only to realize the bittersweet fruit that smells like New York, can also "kill" them if they hold on to a facade for too long. The 3 1/2-minute film pays a cinematic tribute to poet Gil Scott Heron.

DocuClub in December!



Our December DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, December 14, 7 p.m., at 92YTribeca, located at 200 Hudson (at Canal). 


This month, we will screen a rough cut of My Brooklyn by Kelly Anderson. The documentary chronicles the dramatic changes that have occurred in Downtown Brooklyn over the past ten years, and shows how these changes are not natural, but fueled by public policy. The film documents how an obsession with upscale environments driven by the Wall Street bubble is threatening the very economic, racial, and ethnic diversity and neighborhood character that have historically drawn many generations to Brooklyn, and made it unique. This process has led to a fierce battle over the soul of the city, the themes of which resonate with urban communities across the county. See a trailer here: http://www.mybrooklynmovie.com/?author=7.

Director/Producer Kelly Anderson is an award-winning independent producer and director of documentary and narrative films. Her most recent production is Never Enough, a documentary about American’s relationship with their material possessions, which won an Artistic Excellence award at the 2010 Big Sky Documentary Film Festival. Other recent directing work includes Someplace Like Home, a documentary about the redevelopment of Fulton Mall in Downtown Brooklyn, which she made for FUREE (Families United for Racial and Economic Equality). In 2004, Anderson produced and directed (with Tami Gold) and edited Every Mother's Son, a documentary for ITVS about mothers whose children have been killed by police officers and who have become national spokespeople on the issue of police brutality. Every Mother's Son premiered at Tribeca Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award, and had its broadcast premiere on PBS’s P.O.V. series. Gold and Anderson also made Making a Killing, a half-hour documentary that addresses the marketing practices of the tobacco industry in the developing world. Making a Killing premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival, was screened for delegates at the World Health Organization and aired on television in Nigeria, Serbia, Lagos and Vietnam. In 2000, Anderson completed Shift, a one-hour drama for ITVS about the volatile relationship between a North Carolina waitress and a telemarketing prison inmate, which premiered at the Rotterdam International Film Festival and aired on many PBS stations. Her other documentaries include Out at Work (with Tami Gold), which was screened at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival and was shown on HBO. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Film and Media Studies at Hunter College in New York City. Learn more about her films at: www.andersongoldfilms.com.


Writer/Producer Allison Lirish Dean has covered arts, culture, and urban planning and policy issues for public radio, and for publications such as The Next American City and Gotham Gazette. Her film production credits include Someplace Like Home (2008), an award-winning video for FUREE, a Brooklyn-based community organization. My Brooklyn grew in part out of extensive ethnographic research Dean conducted about the Fulton Mall as part of a study led by the Pratt Center for Community Development. In addition to her work as an independent media producer, Dean is Communications Associate for PolicyLink, a non-profit focused on equity and public policy.

Editor Kathryn Barnier has been working in documentary productions for over 20 years. She edited Banished: How Whites Drove Blacks Out of Town in America (directed by Marco Williams), which was shown at Sundance, The Pan African Film Festival, True/False, the Miami International Film Festival (Grand Jury Prize), Full Frame, Silver Docs, Nashville Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Sundance at BAM, and Human Rights Watch Film Festival. Her other editing credits include Out of Status, The Mystery of Love and The Search For Solutions.

Co-Producer Lisa Willis is an intellectual property attorney who has lived in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, since 2006. She has been involved with a number of documentaries, including Skid Row (2008), about the homeless community in downtown Los Angeles, and A.W.O.L. (in production), about African-American athletes. Before law school, Willis taught children with special needs and ran a preschool and afterschool in Harlem. Because of her experience as an educator, she always knew that she wanted to raise her daughter in a diverse community and Fort Greene seemed like the perfect place. As a resident of this changing neighborhood, she is very familiar with the benefits and challenges of living in a gentrifying community. She was drawn to My Brooklyn because she believes residents of gentrifying communities need to have an honest and real conversation with each other and believes this film can be a catalyst for this.

Our moderator will be Mary Kerr. She began her film industry career working in the hospitality department of the Sundance Film Festival in 1993. She worked for the Sundance Institute in various capacities over the next several years, eventually becoming a film programmer. In 1999, she left Sundance to work as a writer in radio/television, but continued programming as a consultant for the Los Angeles Film Festival, Gen Art, and Maryland Film Festivals, as well as the IFP Market. In 2003, Kerr became director of programming for the inaugural SILVERDOCS: AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Festival and helped it to become one of the world’s premiere documentary festivals. Since 2006, she has served as executive director of the Flaherty/International Film Seminars, Inc., presenters of the annual Robert Flaherty Film Seminar and monthly screening program, Flaherty NYC. She has served on panels for the Independent Gotham Awards, ITVS, P.O.V., Tribeca Gucci Fund, and juries for the Full Frame, Newport, Sarasota, Black Maria, and Nordisk Panorama Film Festivals. She was also curator of the 2009 and 2010 Council on Foundations Film and Video Festivals.

ATTENTION MEDIA MAKERS ADDRESSING AGING AND ELDER RIGHTS

Working Films, with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, announces Reel Aging: Real Change, an initiative that will tie compelling documentary films and transmedia projects that explore aging to ongoing policy work and grassroots campaigns supporting older populations globally. Reel Aging: Real Change will begin on March 23, 2012 with a four-day residency where eight to ten media teams will sharpen their strategies for audience and community engagement. On Tuesday, March 27, the teams will present their projects to regional, national and global NGOs, funders, government agencies, activists, and policy makers – all leaders in the field of aging who have a track record of supporting elder rights, respect and health. The goal: to embed the film and media projects into on-the-ground efforts by the advocates in the room. Hosted in Washington, DC in collaboration with American University’s Center for Social Media, this day-long, strategic convening will launch a collaborative campaign between the participating media makers and the NGOs.

We are seeking applications from media makers for participation in Reel Aging: Real Change. All nonfiction projects that explore the aging experience are eligible to apply, and applicants may be at any stage of production or distribution, from new and completed projects to works-in-progress.

Please complete the application form online at www.workingfilms.org/reelaging

Application Deadline: January 6, 2012

IDA is happy to offer tickets at the IDA member rate to D-Word members

Can a documentary really change the world? These days it seems as though more and more doc-makers are giving it a try. But if you’re hoping to use the power of film to advocate for solutions to complex social issues and to urge people to take action, how can you make sure that your documentary has the greatest possible impact? What kinds of outreach and marketing campaigns are the most effective? How can you best partner with non-profits to get your message out? What do funders and broadcasters expect from documentary filmmakers? And what’s the best way to build a successful social action campaign? The panel of filmmakers, organizational changemakers, and communication experts we’ve assembled address all of these questions and many more. What they have to say could change the way you think about changing the world.

This Monday, join producer/director, and co-founder of Doculink, Robert Bahar (Made In L.A.), as he moderates a discussion with Diana Barrett, founder of The Fledgling Fund, filmmaker Rachel Libert (Semper Fi: Always Faithful, Boomtown), Cynthia Lopez, Co-Executive Producer of POV, and Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Roger Ross Williams (Music by Prudence), on the ways and means of producing documentary films with the potential to effect real change.

Join us after the discussion at a reception with your moderator, panelists and fellow audience members.

Tonight, New York Film Academy’s Documentary Department will top off a week of classes with three Oscar-winners, the Supervising Editor of HBO’s Documentary Department and A&E's newest showrunner with:

The Winter Screening of The 2011 New York Film Academy Documentary Festival

And YOU'RE INVITED!!!

Come see what NYFA’s latest Doc-stars accomplished in a One-Year Documentary Consortium that utilizes master instruction from industry luminaries and the production of six increasingly complex documentaries to take students from zero experience to the creation of frequently award-winning thesis films.

From Tanzania, to Peru, to a picaresque Italian village and a remote Venezuelan island, this year’s thesis films take you through a vast landscape of surprising stories.

A born-again Alabama athlete faces paralysis and an offer of embryonic stem cells that might help him walk again. Someone finally speaks about a heartbreaking life – and changes the world. A photographer follows the traces of a celebrated but enigmatic poet through Peru, searching for a connection to the only other artist in her family. A unique housing project in the Bronx makes it possible for determined grandmothers to keep their progeny out of the system and off the streets. In a beautiful Italian village, a Moldavian immigrant spends her days and nights caring for a sweet, silent, old woman. The fishermen of Isla Margarita, Venezuela prepare to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the day that The Virgin of the Valley first appeared to watch over them. A small group of abandoned children find a unique home an old, gothic, Greek Orthodox Academy outside Garrison, New York. A once-famous prima ballerina tries to find new symmetry in life after the ballet has ended. And the children of a Tanzanian orphanage use video cameras to explore and record their world, under the watchful eye of a once wanted Black Panther.

Look for the real life Harry Potter in the unlikeliest of appearances and stay for wine, cheese, and a round of diplomas to follow. It’s free!

I'm up in Boston and can't make it there on time without spending an arm and a leg. It does not need to be the greatest footage on earth, just covered competently.

DocuClub in January!

Our next DocuClub screening will take place on Wednesday, January 18, at 7p.m., at DCTV.

This month, we will screen a rough cut of The Great Chicken Wing Hunt by Matt Reynolds. The Great Chicken Wing Hunt follows a band of misfits on a quest to find the world’s best Buffalo wing. It takes a humorous look at the popularity of Buffalo wings, one of America’s most most loved foods, relationships, globalization, and the way trivial things inspire us. It asks the question, are there perfect things?

Director/Editor Matt Reynolds. From 2004 to 2007, he reported on eastern and central Europe for Reuters and The New York Times. Since moving to New York in 2008, he has worked as a film editor. As an assistant editor, he worked under Suzy Elmiger ("Big Night") and the late Karen Schmeer ("Fog of War;" "Fast, Cheap and Out of Control"). In 2001, Reynolds was editor for the launch of NHL Live, a daily talk show on NHL Network, and recently co-edited History Channel’s "Zombie’s: a Living History." "The Great Chicken Wing Hunt" is his first feature as a director.

Producer Elizabeth Mandel has worked for over ten years as a documentary producer and director. Most recently, she directed "Pushing the Elephant," together with Beth Davenport (broadcast on PBS’s “Independent Lens” on March 29, 2011). Her producing credits include "Arctic Son" (Dir: Andrew Walton, broadcast POV 2007), and, as co-producer on Jennifer Fox’s "Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman."

Supervising Editor Mary Manhardt has cut some of the most respected American documentaries of recent years, including "Street Fight," nominated for an Oscar in 2006, and "American Teen" (2008). Her work has won awards at Sundance, Hot Docs, SXSW, Tribeca and IDFA film festivals and aired on HBO, PBS, MTV, ABC, and AMC. Among the films she has edited or co-edited are "Monica & David," "The Farm" and "Camp Victory, Afghanistan."

Our moderator will be filmmaker Adam Schartoff, who curates the Film/Wax screening series. Learn more about it here: http://schedule.filmwax.com.
