Welcome, Andy. While you don't have a lot of professional experience, I'd still recommend you register for professional status here, which will give you access to all 50 discussion topics.
so great to be here and to have found this great page through my documentary friend Line. I am a documentary film maker based in Berlin.
I am so much looking for new ideas in: how produce films and I am so tired of hearing... â€žthis is not possibleâ€œ. I have the feeling that D-Word is an enthusiastic community of people who want to bring projects further and who love what they are doing.
I have been directing 3 one hour documentaries. The last one was â€žShosholoza Expressâ€œ which successfully ran on many festival around the world.
I grew up in South Africa that shaped my later life as a documentary film maker a lot.
Further I am very interested in the whole crowd funding topic, where I also started a new project on, called â€žRestlessâ€œ. A film about my generation of women turning 30! Please check it http://www.indiegogo.com/RESTLESS.
I am looking forward to share lots of ideas with the community.

Welcome to The D-Word, Beatrice. As luck would have it, I'll be in Berlin from July 17 to 23. Showing my last two docs at Arsenal on the 17th and 18th (with my ZDF/Arte commissioning editors doing Q&A's with me) and speaking at AG Dok on the 20th. So hopefully I'll get to meet you in person.
i'm a DIY documentary filmmaker and just started production on a social issue documentary about higher education reform [www.elephantoncampus.com].
how great. Would be good to meet you in person. Will make sure that I am there. Ohterwise, if you have time, we can meet for a coffee. Let me know: info(at)beamoeller-film.com
Hi Michael, welcome.....I will check out your website, sounds interesting!
I thought I would re-introduce myself briefly, since I haven't been around in over a year.
My name is Jason Caminiti, I made a Documentary a number of years ago called Pawtucket Rising (www.pawtucketrising.info) which played on RIPBS. You can view the entire doc on my page through Vimeo.
Currently, I have been thinking about working on a documentary that I had the idea for during my work on Pawtucket Rising. Unfortunately, now that I have made a documentary, I know what work really needs to go into it. This makes me extremely worried about starting a new project. But, I figured I'd come here for some encouragement and comiseration.
Hope to see you all in the forums!
DON'T DO IT, JASON! (Sorry, couldn't resist.)
Welcome back and remember that procrastinating on The D-Word is almost as good as actually making a documentary. And much less expensive. Good luck!
Lol! Thanks for the sage words of advice. BTW. I've been wanting to see your new doc, is it still making the circuit, or is it out on DVD yet?
As a matter of fact, THE KIDS GROW UP comes out on dvd next week, July 19. Includes 4 dvd extras with 45 minutes of bonus material. And you can pre-order it now!
Wait, is this the Shameless Self-Promotion topic?
