Hello
My name is Mark Fuller and I've been making television now for two decades. I'm based in Vancouver, BC. I've written/directed/produced across several genres, including documentary – mostly series for History, Discovery, AMC, CBC etc. My most recent project is 'Ice Pilots NWT' (writer) for Global/History and I'm about to start work on a similar doc series for History called 'Dust Up'. It follows a group of crop dusters in Saskatchewan.
More info about me on my website: www.tribunebayproductions.com . I'm looking forward to exploring this site – it looks great.
Cheers!

I'm a documentary filmmaker in Miami Beach, FL. I'm finishing up my first feature length documentary called Bots High (www.botshigh.com), which follows high school robotics teams build kick ass fighting robots.

I also run a production company, www.coffeeandcelluloidproductions.com, where I create short form documentaries for companies and broadcasters.

Hello friends! It's wonderful to see such a positive use of the internet in a forum like this- too often it is the negative that receives all my attention.

Anyway, I'm a young filmmaker living between Richmond, Virginia and Nairobi, Kenya at the moment working on a project to develop education and filmmaking in both places. My dedication is just that: inform the youth of our world as to the power they have with digital media at their disposal. I anticipate one day seeing a world where everyone owns some form of a camera, where media is completely democratized, where the title 'documentarian' is synonymous with 'human' or, more politically, 'citizen'.

I am happy to find a group of like-minded people, and I wish you all the best of luck in your endeavors!

Hi Doc folk – My name is Christopher Morris – live and work in wales – 20 years (so far) making docs for British TV – but in 2003 took a left hand turn and went into University – I now run Newport Film School (set up by John Grierson in 1966 – www.newport.ac.uk) Newport has been producing nearly fifty years worth of Documentary filmmakers! Really interested in contacting old Newport Alumni. Hello John Burgan!!!

Chris is being typically modest about his achievements, both as an award-winning film-maker and also the fact that the doc film course he set up (and which I have just inherited) is rated as one of the very best in the UK.

Not sure if there are many Newport Alumni at The D-Word, Chris, but would be interesting to track them down – check out the search tool

Hello all,

Happy to be joining the group!

My wife (editor Jody Jorgensen) and I are forming STORY, a two-person production company to produce docs of a few flavors, but mainly promos and performance docs for the arts. We lived in NYC for five years and loved working on a few docs and a couple of low-budget narratives – mostly post, mostly FCP editing. In the last couple of years, Jorgensen and I have been filming arts projects in development (mostly opera and musicals) – kind of a cross between promotional shorts and behind-the-scenes doc shorts ... we're hoping that one of these projects will turn into a doc feature.

Looking forward to being part of these great discussions!
Bradley
