Welcome, Gerry.

Which theater company did you run?

I grew up in Edmonton and worked at a couple of Edmonton radio stations back in the early 80s, K97 and CJAX. I was the sports department and 1/3rd of the news department respectively.

Tania Waisberg

My name is Tania. I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina but I live in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I work in educational videos and do documentaries with my husband as well. You can check our work at We have done one short documentary so far, and are on the pre-production/ research phase on the second one. Back in Argentina we used to work on advertising, shooting commercials. After we moved here to do our MFA we decided that documentaries is what we like to do.
Looking forward to "meet" you all,

Gerry  Potter

Hi Joe

Thanks for the note--great to hear from an ex-Edmontonian. I started and was Artistic Director, and sometimes General Manager, of Workshop West Theatre for 17 years. I left the company in the mid-90's to teach, write, and, a little later, explore film.

Do you make sports documentaries now?

In reply to Gerry Potter's post on Wed 21 May 2008 :

I was just about to answer your question with a "no", but then remembered that I am working on a sports doc of sorts now. So yes, but I haven't in the past.

What kind of doc work are you interested in?

Gerry  Potter

I'm thinking about that a lot but have no fixed conclusions. Current doc is about the theatre group I work with, Rising Sun, which is composed mostly of people with developmental disabilities. I'm interested in politics, art, people, thinking. I teach creative thinking and may try to do a doc on that if I can find a creative way in (!)
