Seattle-area Assistance Needed!

Hi, I'm requesting camera help for an acquaintance in the Seattle area, who is one of the blogosphere's most promising talents. He is a Harvard MBA who is posting information and videos about how the REAL economy works to transfer wealth into the pockets of those who need it least. He already has an excellent series of Powerpoint-style videos on the Web, and is presently putting together some simple lecture-video tutorials. The content is wonderful, but his production technique borders on stone-age... (White balance and good audio would go a long way by themselves.) Compensation, if any, would be minimal, but any help at all with the shooting would make a big impact, and be greatly appreciated. Please send inquiries to Damon, at: strabes23@gmail.com
(It may take a day or two for reply.)
Thanks for reading!

DocuClub in November!

Our November DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, November 17, 7 p.m., at DCTV, located at 87 Lafayette Street (at Walker; take N/R/Q/6 trains to Canal).

We will screen a rough cut of When I Walk by Jason DaSilva. After working as a filmmaker for ten years, filmmaker DaSilva puts his experience with having progressive Multiple Sclerosis to the screen. His journey paints a picture of a complex disease amidst complex circumstances. The film weaves in interviews, explanations, and findings on MS within a jigsaw puzzle of incidents. When I Walk is a featured project of Tribeca All Access. For more info about the film, please go to: http://www.wheniwalk.com.

Director/Producer Jason DaSilva’s first collaborative feature film was CUBA DREAMS, shot in Havana in 1999, and screened at the Latin American Film Festival in Cuba later that year. His next film, OLIVIA'S PUZZLE, screened at more than 30 festivals including Sundance, received an Oscar qualification in the summer of 2003, and was broadcasted on HBO and PBS in 2004. His third film, LEST WE FORGET, premiered at the International Documentary Festival of Amsterdam in 2004. His most recent short TWINS OF MANKALA premiered at Tribeca Film Festival 2006 and aired on PBS in 2006. DaSilva returned to his passion of interdisciplinary art, showing his time-based artwork at galleries internationally and at the Whitney Biennial 2006. His last documentary, FROM THE MOUTHPIECE ON BACK premiered at AFI/Dallas in 2008. DaSilva is a recipient of the Project: Involve Filmmaker Fellowship award from IFP/New York.

Our moderator will be Sarie Horowitz, Program Manager for the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar. She has worked in the field of documentary film for more than a decade and began her career in film at the Independent Feature Project. She is the Director/Producer of the award-winning short THE SPECIAL MUSIC SCHOOL OF AMERICA and the Producer of the PBS short ORCHESTRA 2001. She produced the feature-length documentary THREE OF HEARTS: A POSTMODERN FAMILY that had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and aired on Bravo and the Sundance Channel. Horowitz is also the Producer of FALLOUT, SUPPLY & DEMAND, ENGINE OF CHANGE and is a Co-Producer on the feature documentary WELCOME TO SHELBYVILLE which premiered at the Hamptons International Film Festival and will air on Independent Lens in the Spring of 2011 .She worked as a Director/Producer for HealthiNation, producing short pieces on various health topics for Comcast On Demand.

I've been helping out an education school (ie teacher training program) that uses video extensively in its curriculum. We film in great schools with great teachers, then cut that material up to demonstrate discrete techniques of teaching, both content oriented and classroom management oriented.

We're looking to bring on some extra help with the video work, including a ton of assistant editing work and some editing and shooting work. It's not documentary film work exactly, but I think it would be a great opportunity for someone getting started to get some serious experience with Final Cut and doc-style shooting.

DocuClub Program is a film screening series of documentaries in rough-cut stage. Each month, a filmmaker presents her film as a works-in-progress. Afterwards, a moderator facilitates a discussion between filmmaker and audience. Constructive feedback from these sessions informs the finished film. Past films that have been screened at DocuClub include BORN INTO BROTHELS, PRODIGAL SONS, and DISTURBING THE UNIVERSE: WILLIAM KUNSTLER.

Responsibilities include:
- Participate in the selection process for DocuClub screenings by soliciting and previewing submissions
- Provide written feedback to DocuClub submissions
- Assist with newsletter, writing, copy editing
- Assist with set up and break down after DocuClub screening
- Keep track of RSVPs to screening
- Research potential partnerships/sponsors for sessions

Fiscal Sponsorship Program is a fundraising tool that serves as an alternative to a filmmaker establishing her own 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation. It allows a filmmaker’s non-commercial project to apply for funding from organizations requiring that the recipient have nonprofit status. As fiscal sponsor, Arts Engine, Inc., serves as the nonprofit tax-exempt umbrella organization that accepts and administers contributions made to a filmmaker’s project.

Arts Engine has served as fiscal sponsor for such outstanding films as THE TRIALS OF DARRYL HUNT by Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg, PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL by Gini Reticker, FAVELA RISING by Matt Mochary and Jeff Zimbalist, and GOD GREW TIRED OF US: THE STORY OF THE LOST BOYS OF SUDAN by Christopher Dillon Quinn and Tommy Walker.

Responsibilities include:
- Research grant/funding resources for filmmakers
- Research news and updates from fiscally-sponsored filmmakers

A love for and general knowledge of documentary films is highly desired. Must be able to work nights once a month for the DocuClub screening.


A commitment of 2 days a week (14 hours) would be highly appreciated. The internship is unpaid, but college credit can be arranged.

If interested, please email Ashley Panzera at ashley@artsengine.net.

In reply to Aaron Soffin's post on Mon 8 Nov 2010 :

Dear Aaron,
I just joined D-word today and read your post.
I am very interested and I'm quite sure I fit the description TeacherU is looking for as editing and production associate. I worked for a similar project in New York City shooting video at Innercity Highschools by the name of Teachscape http://www.teachscape.com/html/ts/nps/index.html- sponsored by the BIll& Melinda Gates Foundation. I have a ton of experience working independently on FCP and shooting with different pro-sumer HDV camera's. I just sent TeacherU my profile at job@teacheru.org. Would it help to send you my resume? Hope to hear from you. All the best, Corinne van der Borch

Corinne, first of all, welcome to The D-Word and be sure to tell us all about you in the Introduce Yourself topic.

Just wanted to mention that it's perfectly ok in these cases to email Aaron directly rather than just hoping he'll see your post and reply. You can get his (and everyone's) contact info by clicking on his image or name above any of his posts.

Interaction Design intern for music Documentary Film/e-Book project (NYC)

Indie, feature-length documentary in progress seeks an exceptional, part-time (1 to 2 days a week) Interaction Designer (or a team of 2 designers) to join our team in creating a new kind of historical/contemporary music documentary. Digital storytelling across screens and platforms is coming to the documentary medium – so help us be part of the Doc. 2.0 evolution!

The ideal candidate will have a background in design and usability, and a deep appreciation for the value of building indie brands that resonate and attract an audience for all the right reasons. You are not only a phenomenal multi-tasker, but someone who simply gets sh!t done. You are steeped and versed not only in social media tools, but in ways to connect and tell a narrative through them. You love docs, but wish the stories they told existed in more tangible, interactive ways.

Working with the producer, director and archivist of this film, you’ll come up with ways to grow and extend our existing process (we’ve got 5000+ fans on Facebook, have nearly 3 years of more than 40 interviews shot in 17 cities across the US, and are starting an 12 to 15 piece orchestra for filmed performances in Brooklyn in 2011). You will help us share and market the film as we continue to grow our audience – both now and after the film’s release.

Duties:
• You will lead the co-development of a 2 to 3 year roadmap for social media and off-line audience growth and engagement (prior to and after the film’s festival debut).
• You will help select and lead a team (editor and designer) in the co-development of an Apple iBook – destined for display on the iPad, complete with original poetry, lyrics, illustrations, photos and embedded video clips (using the ePUB format & HTML5). This project will be filmed for inclusion in the documentary.

Prerequisites (you basically breathe software, not intimidated by anything, right?):
• A background in interaction design, UX/UI work, and working on interactive media teams – yep.
• Experience with Adobe inDesign CS5, Photoshop/AfterEffects, DVD authoring and workflow – check.
• WordPress development and project management experience – yes!
• Experience with video production and editing (FinalCut, iMovie) – {very helpful}.
• A background in traditional filmmaking less important than dexterity in new media production, collaboration and development for web 2.0, DVD, and television projects.

Why is this an internship?: We know what needs to get done, but we are also on the hunt for finishing-funds for our film, which means that even though we will start our mighty "crowdsourced" funding effort in Jan. 2011 (via the usual suspects of Kickstarter or IndieGoGo) – we are not able to pay anyone yet. We do have 1 intern working on the team now for college credit, and hope that this project will be just intriguing enough to find the right person to help.

To apply: Please send your resume/CV and cover letter (personal references appreciated) and links to projects you’ve managed and/or worked on to info@mediagroove.com. We appreciate serious applicants with relevant experience and thoughtful responses. Lastly, please put "Interaction Design Intern" in the subject line. Thanks!

To apply with your documentary project, please fill out our online entry form .
Applying is free.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: JANUARY 15, 2011

Individual meetings with selected applicants: Febuary 10 – 13, 2011 (TBC)
Final selection of projects: February 18, 2011
Participation fee payment deadline: February 25, 2011

2nd Session – Production Development: mid-June 2011 (TBC)
3rd Session – The Market Opens: end of October 2011 (TBC)

Ex Oriente Film is a year-long international workshop that supports the development and funding of creative documentary films from Central and Eastern Europe. At three workshops that take place in the course of one year, directors and producers develop their projects and funding strategies and benefit from the assistance and valuable advice provided by established European producers, directors, AV experts and commissioning editors. An important aspect of Ex Oriente Film are the year-round online sessions and consultations led by the lead and guest tutors of the workshop. The Ex Oriente Film training programme is completed with the co-production meeting East European Forum that gives documentary filmmakers a chance to pitch their project and secure funding from West European and North American broadcasters. The three residential workshops and the East European Forum pitching are supplemented by our Follow-up Support that keeps track of the projects until their completion.

Participants
Out of all submitted projects, 14 projects – 28 participants in director/producer teams – are selected to attend the workshop. Preference is given to filmmakers based in Central and Eastern Europe, however, we may pick up to 4 projects from outside the region.

Participation Fee
The participation fee is EUR 1,500 per selected project (includes all accommodation, coffee breaks and lunches during the three workshops for 1-2 pers.). The payment deadline is Monday, February 25, 2011.

Scholarships
Participants from Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia may apply for a scholarship to cover part of the accommodation and participation fees. Applicants must prove that there is no possibility of scholarship in their own country and that the project is not supported by any development funding.

Conditions of Participation
Participants must be proficient in English. All workshop sessions must be attended by both the producer and the director.

1st Session: Find Your Way
Location: Czech Republic
Probable dates: March 7 – 12, 2011 (TBC)
The first session of the workshop deals with inspiration, focusing on the story and the protagonists, analyzing international aspects of the projects, and drafting the basic concept for production and funding. Tutors confirmed for the session include Marijke Rawie (expert consultant, workshop moderator, The Netherlands); Mikael Opstrup (lead production tutor, producer and consultant, Denmark); Jean-Pierre Rehm (1st session guest tutor, FIDMarseille director, France); Erez Laufer (editor, Israel); Martin Kollár (photographer and cinematographer, Slovakia); Miroslav Janek (director, cinematographer, Czech Republic), and others. Apart from individual meetings, group sessions and film development lectures on storytelling and funding, we are planning a session by Bruno Felix of Submarine, or Andy Whittaker’s (Dogwoof, UK) session about the sales potential of documentaries, about finding new ways to fund, create and distribute documentaries, and an overview session on visual styles in documentary film by Martin Kollár. Erez Laufer will have a session on “Dramaturgical Rules in Documentary Film” as well as dramaturgical consultations with all participants.

2nd Session: Production Development
Location: Bratislava, Slovakia
Dates: mid-June 2011 (TBC)
The second session deals with financing, budgeting according to EU standards, legal aspects of co-production, strategies for selecting commissioning editors and an appropriate television format, as well as a deeper creative development of the film projects. The second session includes the following key subjects: “A Day of Budgeting”, “A Day of Legal Aspects” ,“A Day of Financial Tour”. In 2011 we plan to have the second session in Slovakia’s capital, Bratislava. We think that Bratislava has the ideal geographical position to attract Austrian and Slovak filmmakers and film professionals since Vienna is only 40 km away.

3rd Session: The Market Opens
Location: Jihlava, Czech Republic
Dates: End of October 2011 (TBC)
In October 2011, the workshop will be completed with the East European Forum pitching sessions that will boost funding efforts of the attending projects. The third session deals mainly with practical skills that are required for the presentation of the project and pitching. However, its main theoretical themes are distribution plan and sales, post-pitching negotiation techniques for documentaries, as well as communication strategies to get European broadcasters involved in the project. The theoretical parts of this workshop discuss specific examples of international co-production using case studies presented by commissioning editors, producers and distributors. The session is concluded with the East European Pitching Forum and Feedback Round Tables with selected tutors.

The selection results for the 2011 Ex Oriente Film will be posted at www.DOKweb.net on Friday, February 18, 2011.
