Wanted: Documentary film editor so absurdly wealthy he or she doesn’t need a paycheck. Perhaps you have so much money you need multiple wallets. Or perhaps you’re building a career and want a great new building block for a resume. Or perhaps you’d just be willing to pitch in for a fortnight of serious unpaid work on a cool and equally serious documentary. Set at the edge of the Brooklyn waterfront, its panorama is parkland and politics, it pits developers, environmentalists and park enthusiasts against each other, and it provides a collection of compellingly current interviews against a tapestry of background history. I am fun to work with and may even buy you a slice of pizza now and then. It won’t take forever; but I promise you a good, compact, and meaningful passage in your career. Write to Karen. Thanks.

NYSCA helper needed for The Marina Experiment, Part II & III

I am a first time filmmaker applying for a NYSCA grant. I have a budget, but need help breaking down specific expenses for the NYSCA application. Part I of my film is made from found footage, so I need someone who who can look at my budget and break out specific expenses for Parts II & III of the film, especially Part III, which will be all new footage. Since I have never shot a film, I do not know what this entails as far as specific costs.

I can pay a stipend now and offer deferred pay when the grant comes through. I am applying for many other grants as well, so hopefully I will get money from someone that will enable me to pay you.

The NYSCA deadline is April 1, but I would like to submit as soon as possible. I have completed all the "writing" part of their application, so just need help with the financials.

The video here is kind of a trailer for Part II. You can see Part I on my website http://themarinaexperiment.com

Nice to have you here on The D-Word, Tchavdar, and much congrats. In the future, though, posts like this belong in the Shameless Self-Promotion topic.

Wanted to let people know about an interesting lecture series happening in Brooklyn:

What: The Holocaust in Film with A. O. Scott
When: Sundays March 20, 27, April 3, 10 @ 7 PM
Where: Park Slope Jewish Center, 1420 8th Avenue (@ 14th St) Brooklyn 11215 718-768-1453 /www.psjc.org / F to 7th Avenue or 15th St. / Prospect Park

Tickets: $20/session & $60/series (members: $15/session & $40/series). Contact the PSJC office to register: 718 768-1453 or office@psjc.org.

The Park Slope Jewish Center is proud to present The Holocaust in Film, a four-session lecture series taught by A. O. Scott, New York Times film critic, with illustrative clips.

More than a quarter-century after Claude Lanzmann's landmark documentary "Shoah" and nearly twenty years after Steven Spielberg's "Schindler's List," the Holocaust remains a perennially popular subject in American and European cinema. This course will explore some of the ways that a uniquely horrific and painful historical experience has been commemorated, reconstructed and even turned into entertainment. We will survey the various genres of the Holocaust film--from documentaries and non-fiction-based dramas to fantasies and action-adventure stories--and address some of the ethical challenges they raise. Each of the four sessions will be organized around a particular theme, with clips from relevant films. These will include well-known recent Hollywood productions (like "Inglourious Basterds," "Defiance," and "The Reader") as well as European films ("Voyages," "Fateless," "A Secret") that may be less familiar to American audiences.

  • March 20: Introduction and overview: History of the Holocaust on film.

  • March 27: Reconstructing and remembering: Documentaries, eyewitness accounts and survivors' stories.

  • April 3: Reckoning: Movies about the psychology of the perpetrators and the moral dilemmas of the victims.

  • April 10: Revisionism, Resistance and Revenge: Movies as alternative history.

A rare opportunity to hear insights from one of the nation's leading film critics on this important topic.

Sundays at 7:00 p.m.

Cost is $15 a session for members or $40 for the whole series; $20/$60 for non-members.

Call the PSJC office to register: 718 768-1453.

For more information about the series, please contact Dale Rosenberg at dale.rosenberg@psjc.org
