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. While working in documentary production, Sarie also served for five years as Program Director of DocuClub, a program that facilitates filmmakers in the making of their documentaries.

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.

Job description attached with contact info. Please feel free to contact me with questions as well.
