Here's to the first UNSUNG HERO OF DOCUMENTARY toasted in NYFA's new guest speaker series! We had a great time last night learning about the secret life of a world-class archival researcher. And we thoroughly enjoyed dragging, our shy but brilliant colleague into the spotlight for the first time so that the doc-makers whose films she has enhanced immeasurably – and the students who were thrilled to learn from her – could celebrate her special creative artistry.

In case you missed it, Here's to Rosemary Rotondi!!

So the Arclight Cinema in Hollywood is launching a new documentary festival, with a multi media twist. Submissions are via uploading trailers online, which the general public votes on. The top 10 vote getters will be invited to submit full features, and will be juried by 4 judges including yours truly.

The 10 nominees will be screened at the Arclight Hollywood, and the winner will win a $10,000 cash prize.

If you're in the market for $10k, and you have a kick ass trailer for a completed feature, and you're not averse to crowdsourcing votes, then I'd say it's a great opportunity!

More information, including submission guidelines at http://www.alpromos.com/. And you can see some of us docupeeps sharing our wisdoms in a series of short clips at http://www.youtube.com/arclightcinema.

We had such great time at the inaugural UNSUNG HEROES OF DOCUMENTARY event that THE NEW YORK FILM ACADEMY can hardly wait to announce our second honoree in this great new series.

Please join us Tuesday, October 4th · 7:00pm – 9:30pm (doors open at 6:30pm) at The New York Film Academy (NYFA) in its historic Tammany Hall Building at 100 East 17th Street, on the northeast of Union Square to celebrate:

STEVE PEQUIGNOT, post-production pro extraordinaire. Online editor, colorist, designer and co-owner of GLUE EDITING & DESIGN, Steve has won the love of tons of NYC documentary-makers, who rely on his unflappable attitude, personal generosity, supreme technical knowledge & unfailing creative artistry to get them over the finish line time after time. The many films he’s helped bring home include: Entre Nos, 51 Birch Street, and The Education of Shelby Knox.

Two of Steve’s devoted directors, D-Word's own beloved founder, Doug Block and NYFA's Academy Award-nominated Director/prof, Immy Humes will join Steve to present & discuss some of his remarkable work, including key sections of their own critically acclaimed documentaries. Then, rumor has it, Steve will let slide an insider tip or two before we all raise a glass in honor. (And perhaps a few more in the after-mingle.)

Free for the NYC Doc community, NYFA Docsters, grads and faculty, and anyone who loves and appreciates the art of the doc.

The Unsung Heroes of Documentary:
Please join us to Recognize, Educate, Celebrate!
Directors of Photography, editors, sound recordists, mixers, graphic artists, designers, colorists, composers—these are the brilliant specialists who save the day countless times on countless documentary films, lending their skill and soul again and again to enable Directors and Producers to realize their dreams. But do they get credit and recognition? Love and understanding? Not enough! We thought it would be fun, fitting, and overdue, to bring the whole documentary community together to drag some of our shy artistic and technical masters into a little spotlight. We’ll explore their critical, quiet crafts and celebrate their enormous and under-celebrated contributions to the films of their far more famous directing/producing brethren.

The Honoree will present and discuss clips of his/her work, take questions, and be toasted en masse, followed by mingling with cheap drinks and refreshments. Director/Producers who have worked with the Honoree will be invited to testify to their powers. We hope to attract an intergenerational audience: film students who can learn about important professional film career paths, and Doc Makers who want to raise a glass in appreciation.

We're floating an experimental run for 3 Tuesdays this fall 2011 and hope to bring it back full force in the spring. HERO TBA: 10/11

The assistant will be working directly with me on my new hybrid documentary, Lucy: A Portrait. Tasks will be as varied as archival research, casting assistance, office organization and management, hands-on help during shoots, location/prop scouting and keeping me generally sane by helping with whatever comes up day to day.

I will consider working with graduate students or highly motivated undergrads. Must have car.

Position is for 3-6 months.

Please e-mail me your qualifications and/or resume. biz(at)thornapplefilms(dot)com

Thanks!
