Hi, My name is Victor Huey, a Chinese-American film maker based in
New York. After working on IATSE Feature Film world for 25 years, I
have dropped out of that world to return to grad film school, to take
time off to work towards the completion of my epic 20 year
documentary film about the underground music scene in China,
entitled "Rocking the Great Walls.

whatever help I can get from people. please visit us and watch our

And I'll be the second. Chris, feel free to fire away with questions
in the Mentoring topic, but it's hard to respond to general ones. Try
to make them as specific as possible.

Victor, I applaud your tenacity. Like casting in fiction films, it's
75% of the battle in making docs. Keep us posted on your progress.

Thanks

B&H has good prices and a nice showroom.
Funding for docs falls into grants from foundations, commissioned
programs from broadcasters or cable, self-funded, filmmakers with
reputations who can get presales money from broadcasters or cable to
fund some or part of production.
