Hello, I am yet another documentary filmmaker looking for a
community! I was based in NYC for 4 years doing a wide range
projects and films, and I recently came home to Bogota, Colombia
with the hope to tell so many untold stories from here that go
beyond the drugs, the crime, and our 50 year war. Anybody else in
Latin America with the same interests? Gracias!

Well, Adriana, me, for starters. I work as journalist and producer
(soon will add "film maker", hopefully) in Brazil. Latin America is
my point of interest.

I currently work for NHK as producer for Latin America.

Do you have anything on your mind already?

Boxing Documentary. I should be wrapping up the shooting in the next 2 months and then
it is time to sit down and edit all of these hours of interviews, footage and photos

This isn't a topic for promoting films (which is why the above post
was erased). It's for introducing yourself to the rest of folks here.

Hello....

I just joined this D community and would like to say hello.

For the past three years myself and an international team have
been working on an interactive documentary project entitled
Jerusalem: A Living History.

It has been a slow process, as it always is with independent
work, but we making progress and as we start the final testing
and evaluation process, we would very much like feedback,
comments, suggestions......

You can find a preview of the work online:
www.4-dmediagroup.com/idocs

We also have a prototype available on a CDROM that we would
be happy to send along.

I can be reached at:
maurice_jacobsen@newmediacollaborative.net

The name of the group is New Media Collaborative and as the
name states we are happy to collaborating with other makers of
documentaries, especially those on the East coast, who have
projects that would work well in an interactive environment.

Cheers,
Maurice Jacobsen

Hello!
My name is Elka Nikolova and I am an independent producer/director
based in New York. I am currently working on a documentary about
Binka Zhelyazkova, the first woman film director in Bulgaria, where
I am originally from. I am working on revising my script after I
shot some more material in Bulgaria over the summer and I am in need
of forum to share ideas and experiences. I also hope to find a
mentor to advise me on the next steps of this wonderful and at times
difficult process.

Hello, all,
My name is Juliet Dervin and I've been working on documentary films and interactive
media for over four years here in Austin, Texas. I'm looking forward to learning from the
community, especially now that I'm about to launch into my own work, transition from
working for others (as associate producer, grant writer, researcher, story producer) and
proceed apace with my own stories (my development file needs to
be cleaned out!). Thanks for the opportunity to share and learn.

Hi,

My name is Austyn Steelman and I was recommended to the D-Word forum through my
cousin, a documentary filmmaker who has found the forum to be a great resource
throughout the production of her film. I am an independent filmmaker from California
and am in the process of launching my own documentary which will focus on the work of
two very talented musicians from Minneapolis, Minnesota. This documentary will be the
biggest project that I have worked on so far so I am happy to have found this resource. I
look forward to gathering knowledge through the forum as well as contributing what
knowledge I can.

Talk to you soon,
Austyn

hello everyone
I am a filmmaker based in new delhi, india. 12 years back i stared my
journey in films with a expose' on the malpractices of Delhi
development authority- an organisation responsible for development of
Delhi. Since than it has been a exciting and a very charged trip. I
got the oppurtunity to show my films on the national television also-
censorship has now become a greater evil than what it was earlier on
TV. Though with digital tech the budgets have come down but the funds
have virtually disappeared for making the kind of film one wants to
make. International funding and invite to the film festival too is
not without it's politics and networking. but we go on. would like to
share my experiences and learn more from this place.
