Hello, all.

As a fellow admirer, I'd like to offer a service of free from copyright, music. We have several songs available as instrumental and/or vocal. These are original film scores, composed with over ten years of experience. The label " Kreatrix" has produced 6 undergound techno albums. You're welcome to message us for material and/or produce a score for your doc. We know what the power of imagery can bring with an emotional score behind it. Thank you.

Hi again, Doug--

I just had a long and enlightening talk with Chuck Whelan about insurance, so thanks again for the tip.

Hello everyone!

I was so excited to find this community! I'm currently a Grad student at Southern Illinois University, in Carbondale, studying Digital Documentary. SIU is also where I spent my undergrad years in the early 90s. I'm currently working on my first doc, "Jake and Janie", a story about family, and gambling addiction. I'm hopefully launching my Kickstarter campaign in the beginning of February to help fund the film.

A little about me:

As I mentioned above, I was here in Carbondale once before as an undergrad in the Radio/TV department.
I moved out west after graduation and instead of diving into the world of television, I ended up in the exploding world of E-Commerce, working for companies like eToys and Ticketmaster. It was a great ride (I ended up in London for a year!) However, as life moved on, I wanted to make my way back to my passion, which is telling great stories.

While I am focused on filmmaking, my former life in the online world is still with me. I work in the Marketing department at the SIU Student Recreation Center, focusing on their social media marketing efforts. I'm also one of the co-founders and VP of Social Media Club Southern IL, a professional networking group.

Anyway, I am quite excited to learn more about the website and everyone involved!

Well, sad mainly in that we sold about ten hats. The model is the decidedly not sad Lucy Block when she was sweet 16.

John Gyovai

Yes, Lucy did a great job and the backdrop is interesting, just the thought D-Word had hats and I never knew about it. Not saying I would buy one, but...

Doug Block

Yes, that's Amsterdam. IDFA 2005. Brings back waves of nostalgia.
