Doc wise not much John as there is not much in the way of funding in Italy (i am here for family reasons). I'm traveling between here and the UK where i'm working with a production company based in London and North Wales (I grew up in Wales). Film Agency Wales have just funded the trailer for my next feature and i am hoping to get the full funding in place soon. We have a 2nd meeting with ZDF Arte in Berlin next week and strong interest from A&E in the US.

hi niall... i remember reviewing your project as a member of the CAAM Open Call committee. even though you didn't end up getting funding in the past cycle, i have to say that i really liked what i saw from your work-in-progress sample. and i usually don't really get interested in historical docs. so, i hope you are still doing well with it!

Hi All,

My name is Lukasz and I live in Edinburgh. I am polish and I came here to study photography and film. Still exploring the field of film and finding that documentary is something I enjoy the most. At the moment working on a project about the boy with Duchenne Muscular Distrophy.
I joined D-World to explore more.

Thanks Christopher. Nice to meet you. CAAM has been really good to us. Actually, I really liked "Whatever it takes".
cheers Niall
