Happy New Year to you! Just wanted to give a quick heads up that our next freebie DOC TALKS interview about DIY Educational Distribution with Judith Dancoff is happening TONIGHT, Thurs. Jan 6th, 5pm Pac. This is a very lucrative distribution market and worth the time if you're up for DIY. Traditionally, educational distributors take as much as 75% of your gross sales. With some key knowledge and focused time and energy, you can put this money in your own pocket instead.

HIDDEN BOOKS by Sam Hampton (30 minute rough cut)
This portrait piece of Kumi Korf explores the lifeforce which inspires art. The Japanese-American artist creates architectural designs, prints, paintings, and artist books which are held by the Library of Congress, the New York Public Library, and the Tate Library, among others. We travel with Korf from her home in Ithaca, New York to her homeland of Japan as we explore the inner life of an artist.
THE LOUDEST SHOW ON EARTH by Mariana Studart (30 minute rough cut)
Giba Gonçalves has built up the Batala Percussion Band from one of the poorest neighborhoods of Salvador, Brazil to a worldwide organization with more than 1,000 drummers in 10 different countries. Regardless of age, gender, nationality, or language, the band plays as one – united by the universal language of music.

DocuClub in February!

This month, we will screen a rough cut of ONE NIGHT STAND by Elisabeth Sperling and Trish Dalton. The documentary is an intimate, behind-the-scenes journey from the blank page to the live stage, as top Broadway and television writers, actors, and directors produce four original short musicals, all within 24 hours. Think "A Chorus Line" meets "Project Runway" – a window into the creative process with a compressed time frame: the spark, the anxiety, the camaraderie, and the ultimate thrill of expression.
Producer/Director Elisabeth Sperling worked as a producer and writer for Maysles Films from 2005 to 2007. Her work includes HEAD BOY, an exploration of racial boundaries in small-town post-apartheid South Africa; BREAKTHROUGH NEW YORK, a promotional video about an academic enrichment program in New York City; INDIAN VILLAGE, a chronicle of an American family’s visit to their home village in India; and SOMEBODY LOVES ME, a portrait of the Upper West Side’s unique personality. She has a B.A. from Harvard, an M.A. from Columbia, held an endowed chair in the history department at the Horace Mann School, and was awarded Fulbright and Klingenstein Fellowships.
Producer/Director Trish Dalton is an independent producer and filmmaker. Her film credits include KERAS & MANIS (editor; Gold Kahuna from Honolulu IFF, Best Editing Award from Los Angeles Reel FF 2010), WHY ARE WE IN AFGHANISTAN? (producer/editor; Studs Terkel Award for Media and Journalism 2010), 34x25x36 (co-producer; aired on PBS, and was selected by many festivals, including: SXSW, Full Frame, and True/False 2008/2009), FARM SANCTUARY (co-director/co-producer; Media that Matters 'Good Food' award 2007), and TIFFANY'S STORY (director/producer; Tribeca Film Festival 2005). Dalton has also directed and produced a range of pieces for companies such as Amazon, Kashi, Danskin, Pepsi, and National Geographic television.
Our moderator will be Ann Rose, executive producer of original programming at Sundance Channel. She joined the channel in 2004, and since then has overseen critically-acclaimed and crowd-pleasing non-fiction series including the GLAAD award-winner TRANSGENERATION, SIN CITY LAW (from the Oscar-winning producers of THE STAIRCASE), and GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS. She has also pre-licensed and executive-produced numerous documentaries for the channel such as GUEST OF CINDY SHERMAN, BEAUTIFUL DARLING, PRODIGAL SONS, and JOHNNY WEIR: POP STAR ON ICE. As an independent filmmaker, she worked on documentaries and TV series for a variety of broadcasters including HBO, PBS, BBC, ARTE, Fox, and USA Network, and directed and produced two short films, LICENSE TO PLAY and BO: THE I CHING AND THE FALL OF THE TWIN TOWERS.
