Great to have you here, Sharon. We can always use someone who speaks 4 languages fluently (and not even including the language of cinema).

hello to all, I am a writer, nothing published or produced, I have been writing a non fiction book about contemporary America, called The Psychotic Society for alittle over twelve years now and I was thinking maybe I should take this book apart, take out what I consider to be the most important parts and do a documentary film on it, so, of course, what I need it help, I need an Exe. Producer who has done doc. film projects and I need somebody who is familiar with writing grants and/or raising the money to do the project, also I will need a production Mgr. as you can see I have lots of needs, so if anybody has some suggestions on where I can start to look for these souls please let me know, at jmscrosby04@gmail.com, thanks so much, Jim C.

Hello all!

I have a feeling this forum is going to be extremely helpful! I will be working on a few short documentary film projects, the first in Per̼ over the summer for college credit (topic undecided Рsuggestions definitely welcome!), and another film immediately following in Cairo, for which I have a more precise plan. These will be my first film projects and I have so many questions that I don't know where to begin. Instead, I will just say hello for now and I'm excited to have found this forum! ~Thanks Fiona Otway!

Cheers everyone!
-Jeff

In reply to Ursula Liang's post on Thu 16 Jun 2011 :

welcome ursula! i always make a point of welcoming other asian american filmmakers – there are so few of us, and we need all the encouragement we can get.

btw, i am intrigued by your film title 9-MAN. that wouldnt somehow be related to that particular brand of absolutely crazy volleyball that is so popular among asian players, is it? just a guess...

Hi All,

I'm new, so I thought I'd introduce myself!

My name is Kali Holloway, and I do work supporting filmmakers in outreach, grant proposals, research, ghost writing interviews, doing PR, social media stuff, crowd-funding strategy, Kickstarter campaign, etc. Recently, I worked on two great documentaries from new filmmakers, Nancy Schwartzman ("The Line" and "xoxosms") and Katie Dellamaggiore ("Brooklyn Castle").

I'm also a freelance writer – I've written for Prefix and eMusic, and I'm the promotional copywriter for the DFA Records label (LCD Soundsystem, Holy Ghost!, The Rapture). I defected to film after previously working as a speechwriter for a NYC Commissioner and as the Deputy Director of Communications for the New York courts.

Thanks so much for having me!
