I thought I'd posted here a long time ago when I signed up, but I couldn't find an earlier one, and since I'm listening in here again, I thought I'd reintroduce myself.
I'm aaron michels, and I now live in Oakland. I started working around documentary video around 99, and tried to make my first one in 2002 on the race dialog in my home town of St. Louis. It still screens sometimes in St. Louis, but I wasn't really happy with it, was short of funds, and didn't pursue wider distribution.
Since then, though I've done some editing work on other folk's docs, I've mostly been working on non-theatrical educational videos, with some of my own art-shorts (usually doc derrived) thrown in.
Right now I'm working on a piece for Wholphin DVD, and I've finally got footage to start editing again. The project is more of a thought experiment than a documentary video, but it has portions that are doc-like. It's kind of a DVD choose your own adventure with some radical science thrown in. Fun!
Anyway, I thought it was time to say "Hi" again.
Once this piece wraps, I'll be looking for editing work in the bay area again, if someone wants some help, or knows someone that does...
