Hey Doug,

Thank you and your welcome.

As a filmmaker myself, and based on my experiences with SimonSays
having worked with several documentary filmmakers, I can honestly say
that this service is a impressive. Not only do you get to skip the
tedious process of transcribing your field taste, but you get to
invest this energy into the more creative aspects of your craft.

The software can recognize multiple speakers and comprehend thick
accents. After the software electronically processes the audio or
video, the time-code stamped transcript is then reviewed by a our
staff to guarantee 100% accuracy.

What this allows is for us to offer the best turnaround, which is
usually up to 5 hours of audio in 24-hours. This also depends on the
format you're working in as well as how quickly you can get it to us.
For highest efficiency we have an FTP server that allows you to send
your samples instantly.

Anyway I shall look forward to hearing from you,
Shazad

Hello. I'm James. You can call me River, too. Either way.

I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA.

I'm brand spanking new here -- but I've been a member of Cafe Utne for
years and years.

I'm working on my first documentary script, on "car culture", its
history, development, social and eco-enviro impact, and the little
known history of "resistance". I might in fact be mad. True.

{LINK NOT IMPORTED} - Wow! I get a beanie!? How wonderful! You people are amazing!
I wish I had something to give to you. You want some New Mexican chili?


Reading Andy's post, I was just about to ask if he'd run into David
James Duncan there in the Missoula area (and then...), where I missed
meeting him by two minutes at a book store where he left just as I was
coming in to ask where in Western Montana DJD lived. You see, I had
just read on a dust jacket (River Teeth) that he had moved there from
Oregon. I asked the bookstore gal, and she said he just left the shop!
... Is that weird, or what? - - - Anyway "The River Why?" sunk itself
into my riverine soul back in the day, and it has barbed hooks, so
it's still there. David is a great and beautiful man!

Say, I've been looking around this place, and I see no topic on scripts,
script writing...?! Anyone care to talk about scripts and script
writing? - - - Is that one word or two? Scriptwriting?

James, the "Mentoring Room" topic is as close as it gets in the
public forum. In the D-Word community for professional docmakers,
the subject of shaping docs often comes up in "Works in Progress."
I'd say you're eligible to apply to that community, though the final
word goes to Doug Block, who will probably be along shortly.

Actually, I'm not a professional filmmaker -- though I am working on a
script. I'm just a deeply interested student. I have no credentials at
all.

Working on a script for a doc? I guess I don't follow. It's a good
idea to write as much of the script as you can before production,
but since reality throws us a lot of curves, there's a limit to what
can be written before rolling tape. Have you done any taping yet?
