Hi Everyone! I'm excited to hear about this group and look forward to joining in the discussions. I came to documentary film from documentary photography and am now pursuing an MFA in filmmaking. My most recent (short) is Yes We Can! which was done in cooperation with the California Film Institute in San Rafael, California. It's about the Digital Storytelling Workshop which teaches filmmaking to at-risk young people selected from social service agencies. I really enjoyed doing it and consider it a true example of guerrilla filmmaking!

Hey, all. Thank you for existing. Am a first-time filmmaker, with a background in writing/editing magazines and books. So I've been living in unfamiliar creative territory for the past three years but having the time of my life (well, barring that pesky fundraising). My feature-length doc is Seeking Happily Ever After: One generation's struggle to redefine the fairytale (www.seekinghappilyeverafter.com) and am working w/ Kerry David (producer of "My Date with Drew"). Screened at the Calif Indep Film Festival in April and will screen at the Action-On Film Festival in Pasadena this July. Have submitted to about a dozen more and am waiting to hear. All festival advice/tips welcome as I learn the strange and complicated system! I look forward to d-word conversations.

Thank you to D-Word and members for bringing me into the fold with many great colleagues and old friends. I'm looking forward to exchanging info with the group. I'm working on two film on the subject of disabilities and teach a class at Columbia College Chicago; Documenting Social Injustice. I'm a freelance colorist and creative producer and direct and produce as an independent filmmaker. My latest film "Disability Pride Parade" is a PSA and is on Youtube. We are currently working on a new twenty minute film about the disability community in Chicago as part of a Split Pillow Chicago 360 project. I'm also working on a film about Hollywood's representations of disabilities. Good luck on all your projects! Laurie Little www.LuministFilms.com
