Greetings doc-makers!

My name is Jenny, I'm a second year doc MFA student at Hofstra with a BFA in film from UCF. I looking for an internship this summer. I'm not above slavery, but as a poor, starving graduate student paid is preferred. I've interned with Supermarche (Catfish, Paranormal Activity 3) and have done (and am doing) several independent projects.

I speek geek, comfortable and confident editing, shooting, researching or writing... I can get a mean cup of coffee. I've had festival experience, marketing, social media, etc. Basically, I want to be around other artists, learn what I can, meet who I can and eventually become one of you.

Here's a documentary I did finding my biological mother , and here's a spec trailer of my current film about the death of my father. Willing and excited to learn anything. Those are both reflexive, but I've done and will do other types.

Please let me know if you're looking for someone, or if you know of someone needed extra help.

Best,
Jennifer Campbell

Any recommendations for a post house that will capture about 100 HDV tapes at a reasonable rate?

Hi D-worders,

A friend needs a DP willing to work a short time for nominal pay to contribute to a really great cause. Read below:

Writopia Lab, a non-profit that offers creative writing workshops for kids ages 8 to 18, is producing 85 plays in a two-week Off-Broadway run, May 8th to 20th. We are looking for someone to shoot all 12 performances. Each night consists of six to eight 10-minute plays. Actors will not be mic'ed, so we'll have to hang some mics or run some digital recorders to get sound.

We can pay you a stipend for this work. You will be contributing to a life-changing experience for these kids. For more information about the project, please see writopialab.org/plays.

Hey there, everybody! I am a third-year cinema student and am looking for a summer job/internship. Really, I am looking for an experience that will help me move further down the path to becoming a documentary filmmaker. I have no money, so I can't buy gear and make my own stuff yet, but I have a lot of experience with professional, prosumer, and consumer HD cameras as well as Super 8mm and 16mm. I am proficient at FCP 7 and have experience in Premier Pro, Photoshop, After Effects, and FCP X (though I hate FCP X) and am learning Avid. I have an experimental background but am in a very mainstream commercial position at my university right now, so I have experience on both sides of the spectrum. I work very well with others but also by my self. Does anyone need an extra hand or brain this summer? even if you're traveling and need someone to take care/keep track of your equipment I would be down for that (I just need the experience of being involved with a professional production so I feel more sure of the whole process when I start my own next year)

Anyway, I hope everybody is having a great day. If any of you are interested, contact me at K[dot]R[dot]Hallagan [at]Gmail[dot]com

Hi Again,
The Big Equipment Sale is finally happening, this Saturday May 5 at 263 West 38th Street in New York.
We'll be running from 11am to 3pm. Here is a list of the equipment we're selling with the original purchase price. We're looking for about 75% of the original price but are open to negotiating. Come by Saturday to check it out. We'll be taking cash or Paypal, no checks or credit cards.

This gear was purchased for Makers of Memories, a domestic violence awareness organization who got very little use out of it. They no longer need it so you can help yourself with a good deal and help out a good cause at the same time.

Please email me with any questions or just to let me know you're interested in coming.

Thanks all
