and DHL in South Africa, Nigeria and Ghana;
• Facilitated crew and equipment in Ethiopia on the feature film, “The Athlete”, for the German-based Grand Hotel Pictures/Invicta Entertainment, which will be released in 2008;
• Filmed and produced television shows for National Geographic – “Hunter, Hunted” & “Is it Real?” ; the Travel Channel – “Stranded with Cash Peters”, and Virgin Media TV – “Take Me to the Edge” , the latter of which is to be shown in the UK in July 2008;
• Produced commercials for the African market for blue chip companies as Unilever, Reckitt Benckiser and Diageo and have a team of producers, directors, cameramen, soundmen, art department, location scouts and managers, casting agents, assistant directors, production assistants, grip and lighting crew, etc.

Kenya has been one of my all time favorite places.
Nowadays it seems to be in a big storm?

Thanks Nigel-

I'm not complaining. But I think it would be incorrect to state that being a Member is identical to not being a member.

I remember as a law student the first time I entered the Stanford Law Library. The wealth of information there is staggering. The general public is not allowed in, for good reason.

But being allowed to study in those stacks of 18th and 19th century books, where the majority of thoughts are in complete paragraphs, was a revelation indeed.

And I have lots of questions about Vertov. For example, what influence did his films have on the very famous German actress Leni Riefenstahl before she started directing many years later? She must have seen his films; they were a smash in Europe. What influence did Vertov have on Bunuel?

And James Longley (member and 3 time Academy award nominee) is the only person I know of who has spent 2 years in Russia absolutely immersed in Soviet montage. I know he's a member here, but I've never seen him post in the Mentoring section. And I'm sure he has the kind of deep, specialized knowledge I seek.

I'm not being ungrateful or complaining. I'm simply able to make distinctions between my specialized inquiries and the general needs of others.

If you are ever at the SF Doc-u-Link I'd love to meet you.

And I'm glad you understand my point about crown jewels, even if others do not. One thing I can say, for me it just seems essential to have an Islamic film crew filming in Saudi Arabia, especially given what I intend to film there. All my analysis starts from there.

In reply to Robert Richter's post on Fri 29 Feb 2008 :

Robert,

The big storm slowed to a tiny squall. Now it looks like it's a beautiful breeze!

Things have gotten back to normal(what is normal anyway?)... and i have a deep-seated feeling that they will stay so.

Hey everyone I'm helping out with marketing and distribution for this feature documentary "Rapping With Shakespeare." Directed by Emmy Award-winner Michael King, it tells the story of how five Crenshaw High School students integrate Shakespearean literature with modern day urban music culture to express adolescence in South Central LA. We had a sold-out debut in Wisconsin and our next screening will be at the Palm Beach International Film Festival. Any support or help getting the word out on this project would be greatly appreciated!!!
