Hi all, I had been trolling other sites such as DV forum etc. etc. but
what was missing, I found, was a Doc "site specific" home such as this
forum and the D-Word community. I've been in the trenches for years,
mainly with CBC and was on 'Canada A Peoples History' and other
projects for the Doc Unit out of Toronto, as well as doing A&E and
Drama/Comedy on the network. I struck out finally to do my own project
a few months ago, about a couple of modern day troubadors; puppeteers
actually, and followed them [2 camera] though their day up to an
Indian reservation in Northern Ontario. There was a puppet making
class for the children and then a show put on by these two artisans.
The easiest part was the shooting, funny how that worked out.
Anyway cheers all and I hope I can contribute and learn from the
others that find the art of the doc so drawing.

Hi DB [ I just like the sound of that ;-) ]
I did register earlier for the proffesional forum and was
waiting to hear back, for the yay or nay.

Hi,

I'm planning out a documentary/drama and am interested in finding
resources on what you can / can't include in documentaries from
existing works, and how to go about purchasing licenses for
copyrighted works. For example: How do you include a news clip about
current news? How do you get the rights to include a clip from an old
John Wayne movie, etc.

I'll find a more accurate topic to post this under too.

Hi everyone. New to the forum, and new to the world of documentaries.
I'm just starting research on a small documentary for a studio in Los
Angeles, and I'm looking forward to tapping the brainpower and
experience of my fellow filmmakers.

Welcome, Don. Does Los Angeles have a film community?

Just kidding.

The documentary is about natural births, cesareans and vbacs
(vaginal birth after cesarean) and the controversy surrounding it.
I'm not sure how exactly it'll end up cause I have a lot of ideas
and a lot of information to gather but I definitely plan on
including artistic elements as well as providing a resource for
women as well as their families and the sky is the limit as where
I'll be trying to exhibit it...

Thanks for your support!

Hey,

Just found this site. I've sunk about a year so far into my current
full length doc, Resurrect Dead (www.resurrectdead.com) It's a
first time effort for all of us involved - we're really excited.

It follows an excentric artist obsessed with solving a crop circle-
esque mystery.

I'm glad to find this forum. Cheers, -Jon
