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!

Hi all,

New member here, have lurked occasionally as an enthusiast but decided it was time join in on the conversation.

What finally brought you out of the shadows, Dean?

Nothing profound I'm afraid John, applying as a member was one of those things I was meaning to do and never did, but now that I've finished post on my doc I have some time to peruse the site a bit more and make some friends.

Hello everyone, I just completed my 30 minute short documentary, 'MURDER AT CITY HALL COUNCILMAN JAMES E. DAVIS' STORY'. Its about my beloved brother, slain Peace Activist & New York City Councilman James E. Davis assasinated inside New York City Hall on July 23, 2003. Thus far, we've screened at Brooklyn Academy of Music, & the Schomberg Cultural Center to a sold out audience. On Tuesday, November 23, 2010 we're screening at Tribeca Cinemas 54 Varick St NYC. Feel free to inquire. Blessings & keep up the great work.
