NEW PODCAST EPISODE POSTING TODAY!! My podcast "The Real Stuff" is a series of interviews with the makers of unscripted tv and film.  You can listen to it streaming on my site www.darrencoyle.com or subscribe to it on iTunes.

My guest this episode is John Gyovai.

John is a documentary filmmaker living and working in Washington, D.C.

John has been following in his father’s footsteps as a filmmaker, but didn’t go to school to study film.  He got a job in the business, and has simply learned along the way.  But John has a loftier goal other than making good films.  John’s goal is simple: change the world. 

John doesn’t want to change the world with his films, he wants to teach the world how to make their own films so that everyone has a voice and tells their story.  At least he keeps it realistic.  And he has been doing a pretty good job of it – traveling around the world telling stories and teaching filmmaking.

Hi D-Worders.

I am fellow documentary director and shooter and our production company FILM FOR THOUGHT just bought a fantastic C300 package we are willing to rent out to our documentary colleagues during our shooting schedule downtime.

We bought the camera since it's so light, modular, very unobtrusive and easy to professionally color-correct with its C-log setting. It's an amazing A-roll interview camera that rivals the RED. And most importantly – it has an unmatched low-light capability (we did professional tests and the camera held with minimal natural-looking grain up to an ISO of 6400) .

We are using the camera around 1 or 2 days a week which means it's available quite a bit. I have no interest in renting out the camera package to a big rental house but rather have it stay within the documentary community.

[ ] C300 EF Mount
[ ] 16-35mm Lens (L-series)
[ ] 24-105mm Lens (L-series)
[ ] Arri Baseplate
[ ] 15'' Rods
[ ] Genus Shoulder Mount that doesn't interfere with the tripod face plate
[ ] 3 Cards (2x16 Gigs, 1x32 Gigs Sandisk UltraPro = 164 minutes continues shoot time)
[ ] 3 Canon Batteries
[ ] Cartoni Focus HD Fluid-Head Tripod

If needed I can get you these additional lenses and audio gear:
[ ] Canon L-series 70-200mm
[ ] Canon L-series 50mm Prime
[ ] Canon L-series 85mm Prime
[ ] 2 Lavaries
[ ] Sennheiser Boom
[ ] 2 Lectrosonics Wireless systems

[ ] Plus we have a 5D Mark III as a matching B-camera package if you need a second camera.

We are based in Downtown LA but can deliver and pick-up. And our friend rate is 20% below the current rental market price. If you are interested, please send me an email to: contact[at]filmforthoughtinc[dot]com

Thu 28 Jun 2012Link

hey everybody, Kevin Hallagan again. I just launched a kickStarter campaign to raise funds for the first documentary of my career. It's going to be a wild ride and extremely difficult, but I know I can do it. here's the link: http://kck.st/N3Ni9c

My documentary is not just about Binghamton, Ny, it's about how economics and the environment are codependents whose sum is overall living quality. I'm using Binghamton as a representation of many areas in the United States that got hit hard by the recession, but instead of it being a story about loss and hardship it's a story of hope for the future.

Please check out my link and spread it around the internet. i need to get it seen by as many people as possible if I want to reach my goal by July 27.

Thanks D-Word!

Hi all,

I'm in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign and I invite you all to check it out. http://kck.st/LyRWgk

Coded Stories: Art, Bar Codes, & Mapuche Identity
Coded Stories, a documentary film, weaves together contemporary art with indigenous rights to convey the struggle of the Mapuche of Chile to preserve their culture and way of life. The goal of Coded Stories is to spread awareness about the plight of the Mapuche, a people whose traditions are under serious threat.

The film follows artist Guillermo Bert, a Chilean-born, Los Angeles-based artist whose recent work was inspired by the similarities between Mapuche textile patterns and contemporary bar codes (QR codes). Bert's art raises questions about identity, globalization, modernization, and challenges facing indigenous cultures in the Americas.

Please help spread the word. The campaign ends July 17, and we have quite a way to go. Thank you!

Our next DocuClub screening will take place on Thursday July 19 at DCTV, at 7p.m., located at 87 Lafayette (at Walker). This month, we will screen a rough cut of Paul Devlin’s THE FRONT MAN. Our moderator will be Arts Engine’s own Phil Lane.

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


Admission at DCTV is free for current DocuClub members and $6 for non-members.


Tickets will be sold at the door, cash only.


Doors open at 6:30 p.m. No admittance after 7:15 p.m.



THE FRONT MAN is a hilarious romantic musicomedy that also emerges as the life story of an iconic American character. Jim and his wife Christie struggle with the merits of abandoning a loose and carefree post-adolescent lifestyle in favor of starting a family and pursuing comfort and security. For restless artists, however, does the path to finally becoming grownups also bring happiness?

Award-winning filmmaker Paul Devlin (SLAMNATION, POWER TRIP, BLAST!) has been following the story of his childhood friend Jim Wood for over 12 years. Jim and his band, Loaded Poets, represent Everyman rock ‘n’ rollers, still tirelessly recording music in their basements 20 years and several hundred songs since they formed in high school.

A dynamic, outrageous spokesman, Jim’s humor is as contagious as his music. But eventually he must answer the question all performers face, especially when the audiences dwindle and the Rock Star promise has faded: What is the purpose of creating one’s art?

Jim and Christie invite us into their lives with intelligence and humor to discover what happens when the Rock ‘n’ Roll Dream and the American dream collide.

About the Filmmaker:

A five-time Emmy winner for his work on NBC’s Olympics and CBS’s Tour de France, Paul has created numerous independent projects including 4 feature-length, theatrically-released, nonfiction narrative films: SLAMNATION, FREESTYLE: THE ART OF RHYME, POWER TRIP and BLAST!. These critically acclaimed films have screened for millions of viewers in over 120 countries, and been featured on The Colbert Report, NPR, BBC World News, PBS, The New York Times, Variety, etc. Paul has won over a dozen international film festival awards and received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Documentary.

About the Moderator:

Phil Lane manages the fiscal sponsorship program of Arts Engine’s MediaMaker services. Before joining Arts Engine, Phil worked in the San Francisco Bay Area for a variety of start-ups and independent media organizations. From 2003 through 2007, he served as Operations Manager for the nationally renowned Ninth Street Independent Film Center. As a mediamaker, his feature length documentary, WORKING TITLE, screened at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Montclair Art Museum, and is now being distributed to colleges and universities around the world. Phil has a degree in Film and Television from Boston University and an MBA from San Francisco State University.

About DCTV:

Founded in 1972, DCTV is an independent media arts center and resource for NYC’s indie filmmaking community, providing: hands-on workshops; low-cost production equipment, facility, and post-production rentals; a signature screening & event series; renowned youth programming; and countless award-winning documentary productions to broadcast air.

We need support to push our documentary "The Other Side of the Rainbow" over the finishing line. But for that we need to raise money to afford the needed facilities.

“The Other Side of the Rainbow” shows what it means to be gay, lesbian or transgender today in Berlin by portraying four individuals, who are in some way or another part of Berlin’s LGBT community, but won’t quiet fit in into the usual clichés: 22-year-old free spirit Isabelle, gay punk Nico, transgender writer and performer Jayrome and, the handicapped Mark. A parallel fifth storyline tells the background of Berlin’s gay pride and the development from on to two different parades on the same day in the city.

If our project raised your interest, please visit our fundraising campaign at Indiegogo.

Selling my lens Sigma 17-50 2.8 Nikon Mount (ALMOST NEW).

BH Photo sells it new for $669, I am selling it after only two shoots for almost $200 less, only $499. The lens was always used with the UV filter on. Includes original box, fabric case, instructions, uv filter, lens cap, and lens hood.

I was using this for video with the Sony FS-100, but it would work great with Sony F3, Panasonic Af100, Canon C300 and all Nikon photo cameras and DSLRS.

Hi,
Was wondering if anyone here had a name for a person in LA who's a whiz at Filemaker? We're looking for a little consulting help and some advice setting up a stock footage database. There's not a lot of stock footage in our film, but enough to make us need to track it. It's for a doc film about girls education in the developing world, called 10x10: Educate Girls, Change the World (10x10act.org). We're located in LA, near Hollywood, Koreatown, not far from Silverlake.
Let me know if you or someone you know might be interested. Thanks so much, Alex (alex [at] 10x10act [dot] com)

FILM MAKER NEEDED!

Hi! I would like to make a short documentary of about 15 minutes in length about a very unusual house in Los Angeles. We are thinking along the lines of the old A&E series "America's Castles."

The challenges are that we need it done quickly and the budget is limited.

Are you interested in making this film, or do you know someone in L.A. who might be? Please let me know.

Thanks!

Len

In reply to Theodore James's post on Wed 15 Aug 2012 :

Theodore, any number of D-Worders have recommended Leah Warshawski, though if you do a search here under "grant writers" I'm sure you'll turn up a number of other highly qualified folks.

Mattie, I highly recommend you contact D-Worder Cynthia Hill, a North Carolina filmmaker who co-founded the Southern Documentary Fund. She could probably give you some leads.

"The Real Stuff" is a series of interviews with the makers of unscripted tv and film.

My guest this episode is Angie Brown.

Angie is the head of casting and development for a production company in Washington, D.C.

You know those people who corner you at a party and tell you they’ve got a great idea for a reality show? And then they tell you and it’s a terrible idea. All of those people need to sit down with Angie and get a little schooling as to what makes for a good television show idea.
