I am a fellow documentary director and our production company Film For Thought is looking for office mates, either in a private suite or as shared office space.
Our company has offices in the Spring Arts Tower in Downtown LA (two blocks away from Pershing Square for public transportation and the Red Line) and there is still 1 private, lockable office available in this 4-room suite that we would like to rent out, starting now. And if you are looking for something more inexpensive, this generous space can be shared with a colleague. We would be happy to help facilitate.
If you or anybody you know is looking for space, please let us know. http://FilmForThoughtinc.com/OfficeSpace/Office_Space_for_rent.html
Thank you so much!!
I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm a non-union Director of Photography / Camera Operator with over 10 years of experience working on national TV commercials, music videos, and feature narrative films. My years of working in still photography gave me an extensive understanding of lighting and composition which I've segued into my cinematography. I'd like to get involved in making docs. Please check out my profile and feel free to contact me if you're in need of a DP and/or Camera Op.

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 â€” killing another human being â€” 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 Womenâ€™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 Intersectionsâ€™ Veteran-Civilian Dialogue project, a community building effort for returning soldiers to provide meaningful tools of reconciliation and healing.

The final Docs In Progress screening of 2011 will take place this Thursday, November 3 in Washington DC.

These screenings are open to the general public. You do not need to be a documentary filmmaker to attend. This program is organized by Docs In Progress and sponsored by The Documentary Center at the George Washington University.
SOMOS BUZOS: THE TRASH DIVERS
by Isabelle Carbonell
Buzos (â€œtrash diversâ€) in the Dominican Republic struggle to maintain a normal life even as they live off a smoking garbage dump in the outskirts of the city. For the pennies they scrape together each day the buzos risk injury, infection, food poisoning, violence and continuing a cycle of illiteracy, malnutrition, and being considered little more than pariahs to local government officials.

LOOKING FOR A COLORADO BASED SHOOTER:
I am looking for a shooter in the Denver/Colorado Springs area for Monday, November 21st for a one day shoot on a feature length documentary about the black church. We need a DP who has a Canon 5D camera. Please send links to your work at email@example.com.
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.
