I am a fellow documentary director and our production company Film For Thought is looking for office mates, either in a private suite or as shared office space.

Our company has offices in the Spring Arts Tower in Downtown LA (two blocks away from Pershing Square for public transportation and the Red Line) and there is still 1 private, lockable office available in this 4-room suite that we would like to rent out, starting now. And if you are looking for something more inexpensive, this generous space can be shared with a colleague. We would be happy to help facilitate.

If you or anybody you know is looking for space, please let us know. http://FilmForThoughtinc.com/OfficeSpace/Office_Space_for_rent.html

Thank you so much!!

Best.

Hi All,

I've posted here before and had terrific luck. I am looking for a talented producer/shooter in the Rochester, New York area, who ideally has (or has access to) a 5D or an HD video rig to do a short piece for us here at Etsy. We do 3-4 minute doc shorts here, and this one would be a stylized, process piece of about 90 seconds – it needs to shoot at the end of the month.

An example of our most recent short is here: http://vimeo.com/32113233. If anyone has any recommendations or connections in Rochester, please let me know. I would be so appreciative!

Thank you so much!

Affording Progress: A Community Response to Gentrification by Nuala Cabral, Jaisal Noor and Thanu Yakupitiyage
Community activists and residents of Prospect Heights (Brooklyn), expose the fears and hopes for their neighborhood, sending a local and universal message about the difference between development and affordable progress. This short documentary is a Third World Newsreel Workshop production directed by Nuala Cabral and produced by Jaisal Noor and Thanu Yakupitiyage.

Clandestined by Claro de los Reyes
In this narrative short, a young man finds out that there are some things in life too hard to escape.

Walking with FUREE by Akoma Miriam Perez
Post 9/11, Wanda Imasuen, a Harlem raised believer in the American Dream, found herself jobless and going to the welfare office. The humiliation of her treatment and the persistent efforts of the women at FUREE (Families United for Racial and Economic Equality), led Wanda to become an activist and speaker and to recruit other women to empower themselves.

New York is Killing Me by Regina Eaton, Dalila-Johari Paul and Jaira Placide
New York City streets and the people who walk them are filled with all kinds of dreams and potential. When NYC calls out people flock, only to realize the bittersweet fruit that smells like New York, can also "kill" them if they hold on to a facade for too long. The 3 1/2-minute film pays a cinematic tribute to poet Gil Scott Heron.

DocuClub in December!



Our December DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, December 14, 7 p.m., at 92YTribeca, located at 200 Hudson (at Canal). 


This month, we will screen a rough cut of My Brooklyn by Kelly Anderson. The documentary chronicles the dramatic changes that have occurred in Downtown Brooklyn over the past ten years, and shows how these changes are not natural, but fueled by public policy. The film documents how an obsession with upscale environments driven by the Wall Street bubble is threatening the very economic, racial, and ethnic diversity and neighborhood character that have historically drawn many generations to Brooklyn, and made it unique. This process has led to a fierce battle over the soul of the city, the themes of which resonate with urban communities across the county. See a trailer here: http://www.mybrooklynmovie.com/?author=7.

Director/Producer Kelly Anderson is an award-winning independent producer and director of documentary and narrative films. Her most recent production is Never Enough, a documentary about American’s relationship with their material possessions, which won an Artistic Excellence award at the 2010 Big Sky Documentary Film Festival. Other recent directing work includes Someplace Like Home, a documentary about the redevelopment of Fulton Mall in Downtown Brooklyn, which she made for FUREE (Families United for Racial and Economic Equality). In 2004, Anderson produced and directed (with Tami Gold) and edited Every Mother's Son, a documentary for ITVS about mothers whose children have been killed by police officers and who have become national spokespeople on the issue of police brutality. Every Mother's Son premiered at Tribeca Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award, and had its broadcast premiere on PBS’s P.O.V. series. Gold and Anderson also made Making a Killing, a half-hour documentary that addresses the marketing practices of the tobacco industry in the developing world. Making a Killing premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival, was screened for delegates at the World Health Organization and aired on television in Nigeria, Serbia, Lagos and Vietnam. In 2000, Anderson completed Shift, a one-hour drama for ITVS about the volatile relationship between a North Carolina waitress and a telemarketing prison inmate, which premiered at the Rotterdam International Film Festival and aired on many PBS stations. Her other documentaries include Out at Work (with Tami Gold), which was screened at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival and was shown on HBO. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Film and Media Studies at Hunter College in New York City. Learn more about her films at: www.andersongoldfilms.com.


Writer/Producer Allison Lirish Dean has covered arts, culture, and urban planning and policy issues for public radio, and for publications such as The Next American City and Gotham Gazette. Her film production credits include Someplace Like Home (2008), an award-winning video for FUREE, a Brooklyn-based community organization. My Brooklyn grew in part out of extensive ethnographic research Dean conducted about the Fulton Mall as part of a study led by the Pratt Center for Community Development. In addition to her work as an independent media producer, Dean is Communications Associate for PolicyLink, a non-profit focused on equity and public policy.

Editor Kathryn Barnier has been working in documentary productions for over 20 years. She edited Banished: How Whites Drove Blacks Out of Town in America (directed by Marco Williams), which was shown at Sundance, The Pan African Film Festival, True/False, the Miami International Film Festival (Grand Jury Prize), Full Frame, Silver Docs, Nashville Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Sundance at BAM, and Human Rights Watch Film Festival. Her other editing credits include Out of Status, The Mystery of Love and The Search For Solutions.

Co-Producer Lisa Willis is an intellectual property attorney who has lived in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, since 2006. She has been involved with a number of documentaries, including Skid Row (2008), about the homeless community in downtown Los Angeles, and A.W.O.L. (in production), about African-American athletes. Before law school, Willis taught children with special needs and ran a preschool and afterschool in Harlem. Because of her experience as an educator, she always knew that she wanted to raise her daughter in a diverse community and Fort Greene seemed like the perfect place. As a resident of this changing neighborhood, she is very familiar with the benefits and challenges of living in a gentrifying community. She was drawn to My Brooklyn because she believes residents of gentrifying communities need to have an honest and real conversation with each other and believes this film can be a catalyst for this.

Our moderator will be Mary Kerr. She began her film industry career working in the hospitality department of the Sundance Film Festival in 1993. She worked for the Sundance Institute in various capacities over the next several years, eventually becoming a film programmer. In 1999, she left Sundance to work as a writer in radio/television, but continued programming as a consultant for the Los Angeles Film Festival, Gen Art, and Maryland Film Festivals, as well as the IFP Market. In 2003, Kerr became director of programming for the inaugural SILVERDOCS: AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Festival and helped it to become one of the world’s premiere documentary festivals. Since 2006, she has served as executive director of the Flaherty/International Film Seminars, Inc., presenters of the annual Robert Flaherty Film Seminar and monthly screening program, Flaherty NYC. She has served on panels for the Independent Gotham Awards, ITVS, P.O.V., Tribeca Gucci Fund, and juries for the Full Frame, Newport, Sarasota, Black Maria, and Nordisk Panorama Film Festivals. She was also curator of the 2009 and 2010 Council on Foundations Film and Video Festivals.

If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to docuclub@artsengine.net.

Admission at DCTV is free for current DocuClub members and $8 for non-members.

ATTENTION MEDIA MAKERS ADDRESSING AGING AND ELDER RIGHTS

Working Films, with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, announces Reel Aging: Real Change, an initiative that will tie compelling documentary films and transmedia projects that explore aging to ongoing policy work and grassroots campaigns supporting older populations globally. Reel Aging: Real Change will begin on March 23, 2012 with a four-day residency where eight to ten media teams will sharpen their strategies for audience and community engagement. On Tuesday, March 27, the teams will present their projects to regional, national and global NGOs, funders, government agencies, activists, and policy makers – all leaders in the field of aging who have a track record of supporting elder rights, respect and health. The goal: to embed the film and media projects into on-the-ground efforts by the advocates in the room. Hosted in Washington, DC in collaboration with American University’s Center for Social Media, this day-long, strategic convening will launch a collaborative campaign between the participating media makers and the NGOs.

We are seeking applications from media makers for participation in Reel Aging: Real Change. All nonfiction projects that explore the aging experience are eligible to apply, and applicants may be at any stage of production or distribution, from new and completed projects to works-in-progress.

Please complete the application form online at www.workingfilms.org/reelaging

Application Deadline: January 6, 2012

Registration Fee: NONE. The residency includes lodging, meals, and materials. Participants are responsible for covering their own travel; stipends are available.
