Great to have you here, Deirdre. We've put up a special Full Frame topic for those attending (there's a whole bunch of us) and those wanting to attend virtually. So feel free to drop in and post there, as well.

On a personal note, can't wait to be there and meet you.

I have made a series of documentaries involving public nudity, including Mardi Gras, Key West Fantasy Fest, and Biker Rallies. Always looking for ideas on how to improve my work and find a market for it. I recently self-published a book, "WildLife – Naked Outdoors" available on

You're welcome at The D-Word, Stephen, whatever the state of your attire.

Christopher Wong

as far as finding a market for it, HBO and Showtime love nudity... in fact, their "premium subscribers" demand it. that's what one of their CE's told me one time.

Ruchi Mital

Hello everyone,

My name is Ruchi, I love documentary, I want to make documentaries. I'm a student in the Media Studies program at The New School here in NYC and now, happy to be a part of this community. I found you through the strange, but usual, confluence of things. At a talk at school the other day, two filmmakers mentioned Doug Block's 51 Birch Street, and I thought, I'd like to see that. Then the next day I got an email about a screening of the film in my neighborhood. A click on a link, and here I am.

I recently completed a short doc entitled Making the City that showed at the US Super 8 Film and DV Festival. If anyone is interested:

Wow, Ruchi, and here I am. Life sure is strange. Hope I'll get to meet you at the screening on Sunday (if not you can always rent 51 Birch on Netflix). But welcome to The D-Word, regardless.

Hi D-Word'ers,

I just signed up. It's great finding this community. After surfing through several of the forums I'm blown away by the quality of the discussions and the good solid advice being passed around.

While I do have a doc on the back burner – I'm a post-production guy who does a lot of work with documentarians. Doc work is my most satisfying work... and often the most challenging.

I run my own boutique post house in NYC, specializing in Final Cut Studio workflows. I am also the President of The Moving Pictures Collective of NYC ( ), which is 501c3 and a D/B/A of the NY FCP User Group. Its mission is educating digital filmmakers through monthly meetings and educational events.

Since I'm a vendor-type guy as it relates to docs, I'll cut short the details of my business life and just say: Thanks for having me! I look forward to helping out when I can. And I'm sure I'll have some questions for all of you!



And... what's this hidden section?

Doug Block

Good to have you here, Patrick. Glad you found us. Feel free to jump right into the discussions.

Hi everyone,

I'm a filmmaker from Zimbabwe and I've been in the industry for almost 5 years. I've been researching two docs for about a year now both focusing on our capital city, Harare – one on water and the other on garbage/waste management, both hot topics here. We hope to start shooting in the next couple of weeks.

It's really exciting to find such an incredible resource on the web – thanks so much to all of you D-Worders who make it happen.
