Matt, this is why we invented the Shameless Self Promotion topic!
Come back and introduce thyself, sir!
Good luck with the project, though.
Tamra- Did you ever sign in over at the community conference? Your
project sounds amazaing. Community gardens are such an inspiring
topic. As a filmmaker I am also compelled by the use of the medium to
affect change while telling individual stories. Storytelling can be a
Matt- I'm really interested in your project and the idea of using
multiple filmmakers to tell a story. Please tell us more.
New here, got a couple docs on the go, been doing it on and off for
about 12 years...thank god for some corporate work to pay the bills..
first project is:
The Moore Tragedy: Suicide or Murder? Documentary, 45 minutes, DV/Beta
SP; The tragic shooting of two young boys leaves many questions after
police call it suicide. Did religious teachings of Armageddon cause
the brothers to end their lives, or were they murdered? The project is
in final rough cut stage.
second project is:
The Walking Wounded, Documentary, 45 minutes, DV/BetaSP; This film is
about the psychological and spiritual after-effects on adults who grew
up as children in a spiritually abusive environment and indoctrinated
with fear. It details personal stories of survival and their search
for healing. In post-production.
My son and I will be heading to HOTDOCS in toronto next month,
hopefully connect with some buyers , future collaborators.
anyway, hope to learn something here
good luck with your projects and hot docs. Would be interesting to
hear your experience when you return.
Andrew, be sure to post this intro in the private conference. This
is the public conference, not very well attended by D-Word Community
Hi everyone. Am currently working on my 4th film, called Player
Hating. It follows the life of a young hip hop artist who struggles
to escape, poverty, alienation and racism through music. 4
Minutes is my collaberative project for The D-Word. My prior
movie was War Zone, a feature doc in which I interview men all
over the country who harassed me on the streets. There is more
info on that film at filmfatale.net, if anyone is interested.
Love being a filmmaker, but am currently struggling with the
struggle. Glad to be a part of this community.
You're in the wrong conference, too, Maggie ;-) Not that there's
anything wrong with sharing here, of course, but I know you mean to be
in the private conference.
Given the traffic here doug - this is more private than the private
Yeah, but that's largely because we haven't made the public area a
priority. That'll change soon, especially with the launch of the
collaborative project on Docuweb.org on June 20. We'll be sending the
public to this conference to interact with the filmmakers. It'll be
