I just wanted to let you know about an opportunity for anyone who's
interested to create a financed short that could broadcast nationally
on PBS. The WGBH Lab has joined with P.O.V. and is seeking compelling
pitches for video shorts about the 2008 Election. If selected,
producers receive $2,000 production funds, get feedback from industry
professionals, and their work may be broadcast nationally. The
deadline for pitches is May 2nd, 2008.

If you'd like to submit a pitch or want more information, visit:

I don't know if this is the right section, but for all that are interested:

My name is Christian Kragh and I'm a freelance Flash designer/developer. I create full Flash websites and am interested in creating websites for films as well. In the past, I've mostly designed sites for portfolios, galleries, artists and photographers, that type of thing. But I want to expand and think film sites can be really great. My website is at http://www.christiankragh.com – please contact me if you are interested at ckragh – at – gmail – dot – com – I don't think I'll be checking d-word so often.

Thanks,
Christian

Hi my name is Karen and I'm a freelance web designer, I offer affordable websites, and interest free financing is available. These are tough times and Filmmakers don't have a large budget. I just completed film site that will play at the Newport Beach film festival.

Subtitling job for a German speaker:

Someone wants to have his late father's video Holocaust testimony subtitled from German to English. The interview has already been transcribed and translated. Length is 1:43.

Having just worked with subtitles myself, I know that it works better when the subtitler speaks the native language. That's why I'm passing up this opportunity.

It would be easiest if the editor lives in the States, since the tapes are in NY, but an accomodation could probably be reached if this is not the case.

Please contact me if interested.

I am looking for a group to view my film. I am just finishing editing it. (I think, LOL) I did a private viewing a couple of weeks ago and made some adjustments and now I would like to screen it again. If anyone is in the Providence/Boston/Conn area and would provide a place to screen it and up to 10 or 15 people to critique it I would be greatly in your debt. (Basically I can go anyplace driving distance,any day, as long as I can make it back to work the next morning)
I am not offering money, just an opportunity to watch a film and network. Just a little background, This is my first film and I did not get any grants.
For more background on the film please go to my website at

Hi there! I'm about to graduate from college (University of Virginia) and am looking for either an editing internship or, better yet, assistant editorship. I've sent out 30-odd emails, queries, demos, and resumes, but I imagine I have another 100-odd to go. Any recommendations for post houses to get my start in editing?

My demo is online at youtube.com/user/xtinatracik
email is christina.tkacik@gmail.com

ANY suggestions are welcome! (Hey, I hear Starbucks has pretty good benefits these days, too...)
