Introduce Yourself topic.
Our new feature doc, SEEDS (which just premiered as the Opening Night Film at SILVERDOCS to 4 sold out theaters), is coming to the Bay Area.
SEEDS will be screening 4 times as part of the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival:
"SEEDS introduces us to ten courageous teenagers trying to accomplish what most adults can never bring themselves to do: sit down in peace to face their enemy....Like a grown-up, harder-edged heir to the documentary Promises, SEEDS shows that coexistence, even temporary, is tough work, and often elusive" SFJFF, 2004
In order to make peace with your enemy, you have to go to war with yourself.

If you're thinking of coming and are unsure which date to come, please come to the first screening at the Castro -- that's a 1100 seat theater, which we'd like to fill!
We'll be doing an interesting panel before that screening with filmmakers and subjects from another film, and two of our boys will be here from the Middle East, so come check us out.
Please spread the word to your local friends and family, and if
anyone is interested in passing on an email flyer to their email list,
please let me know. That would be great :-)

SEEDS introduces us to ten courageous teenagers from Israel, Palestine, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and American living together for three weeks at a camp in Maine, and trying to accomplish what most adults can never bring themselves to do: sit down in peace to face their enemy. Like a grown-up, harder-edged heir to the documentary Promises, Seeds shows that coexistence, even temporary, is tough work. SEEDS intimately documents this difficult journey, where there are no superficial resolutions.

I'm approaching the home stretch of editing on a feature documentary
about Gypsy musicians around the world. The unsophisticated but efficient
way to describe it is that it's a kind of, 'Romani Vista Social Club'. It's got
stunning footage (Al Maysles.. concert film and scenes from Spain, Macedonia,
Romania & India). Great people. Good stories. Set for worldwide theatrical
with a prestigious sales agent. Presold to PBS. etc...
It also has an overwhelmed director. Me. Hence the suggestion of working
with an editor to complete the film. Interviewing people now to find
the perfect fit... Please call/e-mail ASAP.

Masters degree in Screen Project Development, hosted at the Scottish
city's Napier University. Geared towards producers it covers story
development, financing, working relationships and, crucially,

producer Robin MacPherson (that's me) we hope to offer some of the
modules online from 2005, meantime you can get all the details at

master scenes as well as a detaileld shooting script. It's gonna
involve part narrative (on 35mm) and the bigger chunk, the actual
documentary, (on HD).
I'm up for a grant but I know that a budget breakdown would
strengthen my proposal.
My question is can anyone assist me in a list of all elements that
you might think I should include in my breadown as small as they may
seem- minimum crew requirements, equipment, other logistics. My only
exprience is shootign independent shorts on 16mm.
This is to all, especially producers, who can relate to the plight of
an aspiring filmmaker and don't mind sharing breakdown
