HI All, I am working on my first film and looking to connect with others doing the same for feedback, support , encouragement etc. My project is focused on an artist active in the period of American art when it transitioned from abstract expressionism -to POP, performance, multimedia etc. more information about that at www.marciamarcusmovie.com . As a first timer I am excited and often overwhelmed with some problem- thinking it probably has some super simple solution that I don't know about - and thinking there must be so many challenges ahead that I am not yet aware of. Glad to have found the forum . I have been filming and editing for about 6 months. I recently got a whole $200 honorarium for showing a clip of my film as part of an arts program (does that make me a pro?) . Recently I am surprised to discover that I have actually learned a thing or two in the past half year and looking forward to learning more. Kate
I'm jumping into my first feature-length doc editing gig, and thought it'd be a great time to join The D-Word. I'm also in production on a short animated documentary about a mixtape (as writer/director), and planning the second edition of an animation festival here in Houston.

I am a documentary filmmaker working on stories about artists in the Bay Area. Just finished a short film No Vacancy that screened at CAAM (Center for Asian American Media) here in San Francisco about two weeks ago. Prior to that I created work for KQED as a Media Producer on their arts desk.
No Vacancy explores the struggles of San Francisco artists as they contend with exorbitant rent prices, developers looking to convert art spaces into luxury condos and a city that isn’t paying attention to them.
I'm happy to be a part of this community. A shout out to Aaron Soffin who recommended this community to me.

Nice to see you here Abhi!

Great to have you here, Claudio; as you're new to The D-Word, you've overlooked one of the few rules we have which is not to make duplicate posts in multiple topics. The basic thing is to choose a Topic and stick with it - this is fine here, but the other two have been deleted.

Tanks for clarifying and great to hear from you. Best, Claudio.

I just want to say that I have worked on several docs with Claudio and can highly recommend him. A lovely guy who is easy to work with, very creative and great at writing in many styles of music. He is also an amazing guitar player.
Welcome to The D-Word, Claudio & Abhi. Good to have you here!

Thanks Niam is great to be here. Is the San Juan International Film Festival still running? We presented a film years ago with the amazing Miriam Colón. Best from Boston. Claudio.
Hey, Just wanted to say hello. I am living in LA getting my start in Commercial editorial, working on my first feature doc, in the development stage.
I jumped into making films in 2008 by editing together some footage for a small classical music festival in KC. I loved it so much I bought a camera and off I went. I have one feature doc that played some festivals, and a gaggle of short docs that are mostly character studies. I love all the aspects of film making, and I am looking forward to learning more here from all of you. This is my third career, and hopefully not my last. Cheers!
After lurking for years, I plan to be a more active member now that I'm starting to put together a trailer and rewrite my treatment for a feature doc about a 17th century Ottoman travel writer named Evliya Çelebi. Curious, cosmopolitan, funny, a great storyteller, and devout Muslim, he saw the Europeans as the Other -- which didn't stop him from talking with them. Take a little Cervantes, a pinch of Rebelais and Shakespeare's comedies, and you'll get a very general sense of how Evliya wrote -- though he's also remarkably unique in his ability to bring his world vividly to life.
I've been slowly edging toward the film for some time, and got a boost this past year by a Fulbright Fellowship in Turkey. Evliya traveled for 40 years and wrote a 10 volume manuscript, of which more than enough has been translated to English for filmmaking purposes. Here's hoping I won't have to travel anywhere near as long as I'm getting started at a much older age than he did. If you're interested in Evliya, there's some posts about him on my blog: www.sharonwoodmedia.com.
Down the road I'll be pursuing European co-producers but for the next few months, it's trailer and treatment time. Glad to be an active D-Word member at last. My pal Vivian Kleiman has always sung your praises and I look forward to doing so too.
I am a universitary professor, and participated as producer in fiction films, and discovered the educational power of documentary films in recent years. So I started studying and then working on educational films. I recently produced and co directed an internet episode of a documentary about Argentinean Youtubers (www.youtubers.cimel.info). I am also working on some small fiction and non fiction projects related with ethics and decision making for entrepreneurs. Hopefully these projects will be finished by august 2017.
I usually develop these films in spanish, but I wonder whether it could be a good idea to translate them to English.
I recently discovered D-word community and hope to be helpful. Just starting to understand how it works.
Thanks for reading and best regards!
Hi D-Word! I'm an independent filmmaker based out of Chicago. I do commercial and documentary filmmaking under the name: Furnace FPS. I've done several personal documentary shorts and I DP'd my first feature doc in 2015. I hope to learn and contribute to the community. I joined D-Word a while back but I am always a bit slow to join in the conversation. Hi!

I am 72 years old Indian journalist. I travel throughout India for historical study & search. I saw 280 miles from Mumbai (India ) on Allamprabhu mountain, one oil lamp burn continuously from last 850 years. It is a wonder of world. Priests of Allamprabhu temple take care of this lamp by using groundnut oil. In 11 th century honorable Allamprabhu founded parliament, which is the first parliament in the world. This wonder is unpublished yet. Any producer is interested to make documentary on above subject please contact me along with details of documentary production experience.

It does sound intriguing.. and a quick google search on the temple suggests it has a significant place in Indian culture too, being a shrine where Muslims and Hindus prayed together and both still visit. It sounds a great idea for someone to develop. I think the Greek democratic forum predates this by a few hundred years though. Channel 4 did a very good two part series on the history of democracy in Greece. However I am deeply committed to another development.. good luck finding the right partner for this.
Hi, I have just become a member of D-Word. Portuguese by nationality although self-adopted Welsh, living in Cardiff, where I am an academic and a documentary producer amongst others things. I am looking to network and develop my producer skills. Currently on post-production phase of my second feature documentary.

Welcome Marilla.. the link to your web site is not working?
Hello Everyone, I've been writing, producing & directing documentaries for over 30 years, mostly for or in partnership with various PBS channels. Most of these docs are owned by PBS. I am now making docs independently so I retain full copyright and am looking forward to working with distributors to sell my docs and other projects to the national and international markets. I hope to expand my knowledge and network by participating in some of the conversations on D-Word.
Welcome aboard, Bill
I'm an NYC based composer and sound designer. I'm a contributing music composer for NPR's This American Life and for NYTimes The Daily, I've also composed music that was featured in NFL Networks show The Timeline.
I got my start in narrative films and tv as a additional music composer for shows like The Affair and Ray Donovan. Since then I've scored numerous narrative shorts and a feature but recently I've been trying to shift my focus towards more documentary work and am hoping to hang around this board and learn more about the doc scene in NYC and in general!
If anyones looking for music for their film and wants to give a newbie doc composer a shot, I would be happy to cut you a great deal!
