Hi Ren, I have been very impressed by Vj's works. I think that
imagery connection will prove inportant to you. Welcome

Hello all,
Just dropping in to get some good advice from the pros. I have crewed
on Indie films and spent a couple of years as a videographer doing
corporate, wedding, and a little music video work. I am currently
prepping a doc of sorts involving two unsolved murders in Oklahoma
and Missouri. They are 5 and 9 years cold respectively so most will
be interviews with family etc. Hoping to get some good advice on
another thread to make the interviews as appealing and interesting as
possible. Thanks!

I am here to find out some info and become more literate in the
documentary film world. I am working on a documentary about couples
who make the decision/choice to not have children. I'm 21 years old
and finishing my Post grad in Public Relations. I'm working on this
documentary to gain experience in the industry and to help out my
cousin, who is the director/producer. I currently live in Ontario,
Canada but I grew up in British Columbia. I'm moving to London,
England within the year and can't wait. I am very excited to learn
as much as possible about the documentary world and to meet those

Hey there.

I'm an aspiring studenty type wanting to make docs when i grow up.

Just wanted to ask if anyone has any opinions on the future of
documentary making in relation to new digital technology
Doug Block
lots more docs getting made. bar getting lowered re basic craft
(especially cinematography). pity the poor festival programmers
wading through all the crapola. still, any number of gems are getting
made that never would have otherwise: tarnation, dig!, etc.

Hi all,

greetings from Amsterdam, home of IDFA, one of the largest
documentary film festivals in the world held each year in November.
I'm joining because I love documentaries and to talk about them, to
answer any questions about IDFA, your opinions about IDFA and of
course to hear about interesting documentaries made in whereever you
live. Don't hesitate to ask anything. My personal favourites from the
2004 edition are Darwin's Nightmare by Hubert Sauper, Liberia: an
Uncivil War by Jonathan Stack and James Brabazon and last but not
least The 3 Rooms of Melancholia by Pirjo Honkasalo. If you have a
chance to see them, go! Greets
