I'm selling a MTF Services Ltd, Nikon G to Sony E Mount Adapter and MTF M43/E mount support, because I've switched from Nikon lenses to Zeiss.

The lens support has never been used and the adapter has been used twice.

The adapter allows you to attach any Nikon-mounted lens to the Sony NEX-3/5/7, NEX-VG10/20 and the Sony NEX FS-100 cameras. It is compatible with DX and 35mm format lenses and also supports lenses with or without aperture rings.

Looking for a Native American Documentary-maker

Hi all,

A NYFA thesis student from Bulgaria will soon begin shooting a doc about an Omaha Sioux family who are trying to maintain and nourish their traditional ways against rather daunting societal, economic, and now medical odds. She and I would both like to get her connected to a Native American documentarian for mentoring as she goes. It could be as significant or minimal as anyone is willing to do. She has great craft mentors through the school. And she will have the guidance and advice of several Omaha people. Still, while some of her faculty have made docs with and about Native Americans, none of the Omaha advisers knows anything about filmmaking and none of us has the prospective that an actual Native American might lend her. She'd love to find someone Omaha but will thrilled with anyone who could combine some knowledge of film making with a Native American personal perspective.

Anyone?

Please email me at aswift@nyfa.edu if you, or someone you know, might be willing to help.

Thanks!
Andrea

from Arts Engine, Inc.:

Our next DocuClub will take place on Thursday, March 22, 7 p.m. at DCTV, located at 87 Lafayette (at Walker). This month, we will screen a rough cut of Changing Face of Harlem by award-winning filmmaker Shawn Batey. March's DocuClub will be moderated by Marilyn Ness, Arts Engine's Director of Production.

Changing Face of Harlem is a one-hour documentary that examines the revitalization of Harlem told through the deeply personal stories of its residents, small business owners, politicians, developers and clergy. The film takes a critical look at Harlem’s history, early development, and present transformation. Twenty years ago, according to the press, Harlem was a crime-ridden ghetto full of hoodlums and drugs. Though recognized internationally as “The Black Mecca,” the historic neighborhood was overlooked for decades. Longtime residents weathered the storm despite the lack of city services and building landlord abandonment. Bank practices of redlining in the 1980’s prevented many residents from purchasing turn of the century brownstones within their own blocks. Recently, however Harlem has matured into a prosperous locale for commercial and corporate interests. As New York City exhausts its scarce amount of centrally located prime real estate, it has marketed Harlem as an ideal investment. With this influx of new investment has come a younger, more professional, and affluent class of residents. The film offers fresh perspectives from community members on the pressing issues of class, cultural preservation and sustainability.

If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to docuclub@artsengine.net. Admission at DCTV is free for current DocuClub members and $6 for non-members.
Tickets will be sold at the door, cash only.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

No admittance after 7:15 p.m. Membership is an annual $50 and it includes free admission to all DocuClub events. It takes five minutes to join online:

Hello! I am looking for a grant writer to help with my film – Star in the RIng – it tells the story of when Jews DOMINATED the sport of boxing. It is a part of Jewish history / American history and sport history, that is all but forgotten.

I am honored to say that I received a grant from The Righteous Persons Foundation.

The ideal grant writer could start with helping me write a two page letter of inquiry that can be tailored to the foundations I have narrowed down. I am part of NYFA – which makes this project have a 501 – c – 3 status. I am hoping the good people here – who have done this adventure, may have some recommendations they had good experience and are willing to share. I have been in touch with Joanna Rabiger – she sounds wonderful from people on here... but she is not available till the summer.

Thanks so much for any help!

Hello. I'm shooting a feature in Eastern Washington state some time this summer. I'm curious if anyone can point me towards the best grip and electric rental house in Seattle. If there is even more than one. I'm looking for a good deal on a 5 ton package and a 500 amp genny. I'm also looking for local talent in the grip and electric departments. I know this isn't strictly along documentary lines, but I thought I'd give this forum a try, as I'm striking out in other places.

I was recently lead sound designer for the feature films "Safety Not Guaranteed" and "Eden" which did extremely well at Sundance and SXSW respectively.

DocuClub Screenings: Next DocuClub Wednesday April 18th at DCTV!

This month, we will screen a rough cut of MEXICAN DREAM. Our moderator will be Vanessa Erazo of New York International Latino Film Festival.

MEXICAN DREAM is about one group of indigenous migrants who change a pastoral but poverty-stricken life in Mexico for a new home in a small meatpacking town in Minnesota. It introduces several families from an impoverished agrarian community in the state of Oaxaca in southern Mexico. It also presents a Midwestern meatpacking town that was at the center of a crushing national defeat of the meatpacker’s union during the Reagan administration, where the Mexican migrants have formed their own community that exists uncomfortably alongside the mostly white population.

A mix of observational documentary and montage with reportage via interviews and several inter-titles shows how the strong sense of community amongst these immigrants perseveres in the U.S. while the anxieties of working class life set in. The social effects on the families of migrants back home are profound. MEXICAN DREAM brings these pressing issues to light and humanizes the denigrated, undocumented “illegals.” It also discusses how these same anxieties haunt the long time white community. Shot on both sides of the border, it shows the contradictions in many Americans’ ideas about immigration
and how Mexican society has accepted it as a convenient outlet for decades.

About the filmmaker:

Jon Wetterau (Videography/Co-Producer) has worked on documentary productions in various roles in India, Central America and Cameroon. He initiated and photographed ONE COUNTRY, CAMEROON; TWO QUARTIERS. He has directed two other projects in his native Queens, New York City and has a work-in-progress about Americans gentrifying San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

About the moderator:

After having spent several years working for various film festivals—such as the International Latino Film Festival – San Francisco Bay Area, the International Contemporary Film Festival of Mexico City(FICCO) and the Havana Film Festival New York—in a variety of roles, Vanessa Erazo now acts as the Documentary Programmer at the New York International Latino Film Festival. She has curated films on a wide range of topics such as human rights, autism, sports, adoption and homelessness. Until recently, she served as the Programming Co-chair for the New York chapter of the National Association of Latino Independent Producers. She is also a regular film contributor for Remezcla—an online Latino culture guide. Vanessa holds a Master’s degree in Latin American and Caribbean Studies from New York University, and a B.A. in Political Science from San Francisco State University.

Two great Doc U event coming up next week. I've managed to arrange D-Word discounts for both:

DOC U: TRAILER MECHANICS WITH FERNANDA ROSSI
SATURDAY, APRIL 21 FROM 9:30AM TO 6PM
THE ANNEX, SANTA MONICA

Your trailer should be the ultimate pitch, the one thing that sells potential funders on the potential of your project. A fundraising trailer can make or break your film. We want you to stop guessing what works and what doesn't.

IDA has asked internationally renowned author, speaker and story consultant Fernanda Rossi to host a full-day workshop for producers, directors, writers and editors to help make your trailer all that it can be. In this workshop, held on the 3rd floor of The Annex in Santa Monica, you will learn the foundational story structures for fundraising trailers, and hear some of the most common mistakes filmmakers make when crafting their proposals, budgets, and trailers. This workshop will also give you a chance to see Fernanda's work applied to actual trailers, with before and after examples and a few of the successful fundraising trailers.

IDA is offering a limited number of discounted tickets to D-Worders using code "DWORDTRAILER". Buy tickets here

Seriously people, if you're working on fundraising trailers, you need to take Fernanda's class

DOC U: YES, BUT IS IT ART?
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18 AT CINEFAMILY
With the growing popularity of documentary film, many have admirably seized on the power of non-fiction storytelling to affect change around social and political issues. But in all the discussion about content and impact, have we forgotten to explore documentary as cinema, as art? In a lively conversation about how they mobilize aesthetic choices to generate meaning, filmmakers discuss stylistic strategies, creative inspirations, story structure, and the tension between form and content.

On Wednesday, April 18 join Caroline Libresco, Senior Programmer at the Sundance Film Festival, as she moderates a discussion with filmmakers whose documentary work not only delivers a powerful message, but also storytelling impact through visual imagery.

IDA is offering D-Worders the IDA Member discount rate, which you can get by using code "DWORDDOCU" when buying tickets here

I'm holding a big open house equipment sale Saturday April 21 in Manhattan (w 38th st.)

I'm helping a domestic violence nonprofit (Makers of Memories) unload a bunch of film equipment that they bought but do not want or need. There is a long list so I have attached a PDF of the items.

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B-_8-vFX1lBXTmREODFVZDktbXc

Some of these items are currently being used and are marked as not for sale but if you're interested in anything in particular let me know and I can see if we can part with them. Otherwise they should become available within a month.

We are looking for about 75% of the purchase price for these items but are open to negotiation.

Greetings doc-makers!

My name is Jenny, I'm a second year doc MFA student at Hofstra with a BFA in film from UCF. I looking for an internship this summer. I'm not above slavery, but as a poor, starving graduate student paid is preferred. I've interned with Supermarche (Catfish, Paranormal Activity 3) and have done (and am doing) several independent projects.

I speek geek, comfortable and confident editing, shooting, researching or writing... I can get a mean cup of coffee. I've had festival experience, marketing, social media, etc. Basically, I want to be around other artists, learn what I can, meet who I can and eventually become one of you.

Here's a documentary I did finding my biological mother , and here's a spec trailer of my current film about the death of my father. Willing and excited to learn anything. Those are both reflexive, but I've done and will do other types.

Please let me know if you're looking for someone, or if you know of someone needed extra help.

Best,

Hi D-worders,

A friend needs a DP willing to work a short time for nominal pay to contribute to a really great cause. Read below:

Writopia Lab, a non-profit that offers creative writing workshops for kids ages 8 to 18, is producing 85 plays in a two-week Off-Broadway run, May 8th to 20th. We are looking for someone to shoot all 12 performances. Each night consists of six to eight 10-minute plays. Actors will not be mic'ed, so we'll have to hang some mics or run some digital recorders to get sound.

We can pay you a stipend for this work. You will be contributing to a life-changing experience for these kids. For more information about the project, please see writopialab.org/plays.

Hey there, everybody! I am a third-year cinema student and am looking for a summer job/internship. Really, I am looking for an experience that will help me move further down the path to becoming a documentary filmmaker. I have no money, so I can't buy gear and make my own stuff yet, but I have a lot of experience with professional, prosumer, and consumer HD cameras as well as Super 8mm and 16mm. I am proficient at FCP 7 and have experience in Premier Pro, Photoshop, After Effects, and FCP X (though I hate FCP X) and am learning Avid. I have an experimental background but am in a very mainstream commercial position at my university right now, so I have experience on both sides of the spectrum. I work very well with others but also by my self. Does anyone need an extra hand or brain this summer? even if you're traveling and need someone to take care/keep track of your equipment I would be down for that (I just need the experience of being involved with a professional production so I feel more sure of the whole process when I start my own next year)

Anyway, I hope everybody is having a great day. If any of you are interested, contact me at K[dot]R[dot]Hallagan [at]Gmail[dot]com

This gear was purchased for Makers of Memories, a domestic violence awareness organization who got very little use out of it. They no longer need it so you can help yourself with a good deal and help out a good cause at the same time.

Please email me with any questions or just to let me know you're interested in coming.

Thanks all

Local News: Three Neighborhood Films by John Smith at UnionDocs

Saturday, May 12th at 7:00pm. $9 suggested donation.

For more information see:

http://www.uniondocs.org/2012-05-12-john-smith/

Between 1988 and 1996, John Smith made three quasi-documentary works that register the disastrous effects of the construction of the M11 Link Road on the filmmaker’s East London neighborhood. While all three function to preserve the memory of this vanishing landscape, and implicitly participate in the large-scale protests that met the highway’s construction, Smith — one of England’s most consistently inventive avant-garde filmmakers — puts the material to various suggestive uses, crafting three very different formal investigations whose unfolding stimulates a profound reflection on memory, time, history, and the lived experience of the city.

John Smith will appear via conference for a conversation with UnionDocs Critical Writing Fellow Colin Beckett.

ARTS ENGINE presents: DOCUCLUB! 6/20/2012

Our next DocuClub screening will take place on Wednesday June 20 at DCTV, at 7p.m., located at 87 Lafayette (at Walker). This month, we will screen a rough cut of Cary McClelland’s WITHOUT SHEPHERDS. Our moderator will be Arts Engine’s own Phil Lane.

If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to docuclub@artsengine.net.


Admission at DCTV is free for current DocuClub members and $6 for non-members.

Tickets will be sold at the door, cash only.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. No admittance after 7:15 p.m.



WITHOUT SHEPHERDS is a rare and essential glimpse into brave lives trapped in the turbulent waters of Pakistan today. The film begins in wake of Benazir Bhutto’s assassination, in the midst of the first national election in ten years. Just as the country faces an unprecedented opportunity to shape a new future, each of our characters takes their first steps in bold new directions of their own: a cricket star building a new political party, a female journalist working behind Taliban lines, an ex-mujahid seeking redemption, a trucker crossing dangerous territory to feed his family, a supermodel pushing feminism through fashion, and a subversive Sufi rocker using music to heal.

Whether explicitly or not, they are all part of a moderate core that is beginning to emerge in Pakistan, looking for progressive allies both domestic and abroad to help them address the decades old conflicts that are tearing their country apart. Each of them sees the world from a different perspective and has differing answers to questions regarding the government, the impact of Western foreign policy, the role of Islam, and the uncertainty of what kind of country will emerge. As the “war on terror” continues with no end in sight and dangerous consequences for the region and the world, WITHOUT SHEPHERDS is a record of this moment, where Pakistan sits at the center of a deeply broken world, and of those inside the country who try to find a way forward for all of us.

About the Filmmaker:
Cary McClelland is a documentary filmmaker and human rights advocate working in Brooklyn, NY. His work has taken him from East Timor to Egypt, from Zimbabwe to Myanmar. In 2006, he worked with Search for Common Ground using community theatre as a tool for peacebuilding in Eastern Congo, and since then, has worked for the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting, PBS, Witness, and SABC. He continues to work to build bridges between cultures, as the the Project Manager and Lead Curator of the new YouTube Human Rights Channel in conjunction with WITNESS and Storyful. He has a BA in Screenwriting from Harvard College, and a Masters in International Affairs from Columbia University.

About the Moderator:
Phil Lane manages the fiscal sponsorship program of Arts Engine’s MediaMaker services. Before joining Arts Engine, Phil worked in the San Francisco Bay Area for a variety of start-ups and independent media organizations. From 2003 through 2007, he served as Operations Manager for the nationally renowned Ninth Street Independent Film Center. As a mediamaker, his feature length documentary, WORKING TITLE, screened at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Montclair Art Museum, and is now being distributed to colleges and universities around the world. Phil has a degree in Film and Television from Boston University and an MBA from San Francisco State University.

Hey all,

I will start with the most important info: The company I work for is willing to pay for short documentaries. We are not looking for free content.

With that said, I work for a yet-to-be launched web start-up focusing on world news. We are trying to uncover unreported stories that are hiding in plain sight around the globe. But more importantly, we want to tell stories about people.

We are looking for human stories that act as an entryway into larger issues. We want to give world events and concerns context through the voice of individuals. These stories will be short, feature-like news stories at heart, but with a real level of added artistry. Think Vimeo, not YouTube.

We want to give our audience a fresh take on often tired topics. We want to present new angles into the news, and deliver compelling insights that elevate the conversation.

The short docs should be about 2-10 minutes, depending on the story.

If you¹re at all interested, please reply to me as soon as you can. I will be more than happy to discuss content, compensation, and other specifics then.

NEED LOCATION FOR AFTERNOON DOCUMENTARY INTERVIEW IN LOS ANGELES/ONTARIO AREA ON JULY 2.

We are going to be in the Los Angeles area for a sit-down interview with a subject for a documentary film. We had planned to do the interview at his father's house near Ontario, CA, but that just fell through. So, we're looking for a location (will even consider sound studio) anywhere from Downtown LA out to San Bernardino for about 8 hours total (still working out times). Haven't budgeted much for location rental, but can pay a reasonable fee if it's a great spot. We're looking at crew of 3-4 with simple interview lighting and sound set-up. We have general liability insurance.

If you have specific suggestions, please drop me an email at mlnickolas@gmail.com.

Thanks, Mark

NEW PODCAST EPISODE POSTING TODAY!! My podcast "The Real Stuff" is a series of interviews with the makers of unscripted tv and film.  You can listen to it streaming on my site www.darrencoyle.com or subscribe to it on iTunes.

My guest this episode is John Gyovai.

John is a documentary filmmaker living and working in Washington, D.C.

John has been following in his father’s footsteps as a filmmaker, but didn’t go to school to study film.  He got a job in the business, and has simply learned along the way.  But John has a loftier goal other than making good films.  John’s goal is simple: change the world. 

John doesn’t want to change the world with his films, he wants to teach the world how to make their own films so that everyone has a voice and tells their story.  At least he keeps it realistic.  And he has been doing a pretty good job of it – traveling around the world telling stories and teaching filmmaking.

Hi D-Worders.

I am fellow documentary director and shooter and our production company FILM FOR THOUGHT just bought a fantastic C300 package we are willing to rent out to our documentary colleagues during our shooting schedule downtime.

We bought the camera since it's so light, modular, very unobtrusive and easy to professionally color-correct with its C-log setting. It's an amazing A-roll interview camera that rivals the RED. And most importantly – it has an unmatched low-light capability (we did professional tests and the camera held with minimal natural-looking grain up to an ISO of 6400) .

We are using the camera around 1 or 2 days a week which means it's available quite a bit. I have no interest in renting out the camera package to a big rental house but rather have it stay within the documentary community.

[ ] C300 EF Mount
[ ] 16-35mm Lens (L-series)
[ ] 24-105mm Lens (L-series)
[ ] Arri Baseplate
[ ] 15'' Rods
[ ] Genus Shoulder Mount that doesn't interfere with the tripod face plate
[ ] 3 Cards (2x16 Gigs, 1x32 Gigs Sandisk UltraPro = 164 minutes continues shoot time)
[ ] 3 Canon Batteries
[ ] Cartoni Focus HD Fluid-Head Tripod

If needed I can get you these additional lenses and audio gear:
[ ] Canon L-series 70-200mm
[ ] Canon L-series 50mm Prime
[ ] Canon L-series 85mm Prime
[ ] 2 Lavaries
[ ] Sennheiser Boom
[ ] 2 Lectrosonics Wireless systems

[ ] Plus we have a 5D Mark III as a matching B-camera package if you need a second camera.

We are based in Downtown LA but can deliver and pick-up. And our friend rate is 20% below the current rental market price. If you are interested, please send me an email to: contact[at]filmforthoughtinc[dot]com

hey everybody, Kevin Hallagan again. I just launched a kickStarter campaign to raise funds for the first documentary of my career. It's going to be a wild ride and extremely difficult, but I know I can do it. here's the link: http://kck.st/N3Ni9c

My documentary is not just about Binghamton, Ny, it's about how economics and the environment are codependents whose sum is overall living quality. I'm using Binghamton as a representation of many areas in the United States that got hit hard by the recession, but instead of it being a story about loss and hardship it's a story of hope for the future.

Please check out my link and spread it around the internet. i need to get it seen by as many people as possible if I want to reach my goal by July 27.

Thanks D-Word!

-Kevin

I'm selling my Sony NEX FS-100 (body only) and replacing it with a NEX FS-700.
The camera is one year old and is in perfect condition.

Description:
The NEX-FS100 is an interchangeable lens camcorder featuring a Super 35mm sensor equivalent in size to a Super35mm film camera (same as PMW-F3).

With a lens adapter, it will except almost any 35mm lens... including Nikon, Zeiss, Sony, Minolta and Canon.
