Hi all,
I am an independent filmmaker (past films- UNLISTED and HIDDEN PICTURES) and i would love any help concerning finding a sound person for Oct 21 and 22 in NYC and also in finding kids/ teens to film. The film is on kids and tech.

Looking for kid age 11 to 16, ideally girl 11-13 and living in Bronx area who would want to be in the film--to talk about cell phone and such, or if boy, about video games that could film on Monday Oct 20th in the afternoon and ideally 1 or 2 parents would be in the film too. If we find anyone i could all and talk to them this week so they could have questions answered.

Also looking for any staff/ teacher who works in NY school who we could ask if they like the no cell phone in school policy.

Also looking for a school where we could film in

If someone can help with leads that would be wonderful and we could even hire someone as a field producer to help with shooting in school –- to be on the shoot if they find a schoolif the film/ kids part of this this i can compensate some funds for this!

Thank you!! D

DC folks, check out these two upcoming programs:

SEND IT TO LEGAL: A WORKSHOP ON LEGAL BASICS FOR DOCUMENTARY FILM
Saturday, November 8 from 10-1 at Docs In Progress in Silver Spring
Have the legal issues on your film project got you wishing you had your own legal department? Anticipating legal challenges can mean the difference between a shelved project collecting dust and a successful film release. This half-day workshop with entertainment attorney Laura Possessky is designed to help you identify legal issues and develop a toolkit to navigate challenges as they arise. Participants engage in interactive discussions on business structures, production risks, rights clearances, distribution and best practices.
A few spots are still available. Find out more and register: http://docsinprogress.org/events/232/legalnov8/

and, if Pat Aufderheide's recent D-Word special topic whet your appetite for some F2F discussion...

WIFV/DOCS IN PROGRESS DOCUMENTARY ROUNDTABLE – MAKE A LIVING IN A FAIR-USE-FRIENDLY WORLD
Monday, December 8, 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Interface Media in Washington DC
Fair use, the use of unlicensed material in documentary, has become a routine feature of documentary production; broadcasters and insurers are now accepting it as a matter of course. But documentarians now have new questions. When a broadcaster uses my doc to explain their news story, can they do that without paying me? When a media company tells me I have to get clearances for everything, how do I tell them the current realities? Just how risky is fair use these days? And who's got my back if I get a cease and desist letter?
