Martina (alias Pliegerm) - have you read Mark Kurlansky's book on the
World History of Salt?

Welcome all. Federica, are you the same Federica I met in
Bardonecchia who was pitching the project on garden gnomes?

Hey all,
My name is Brian . I am making a return to filmmaking after a
several year hiatus. I graduated from Bard college with a BFA
in film. However I have spent the many years working in
lighting, everything from theaters to museums.
I recently awoke to realize how much I was missing my real
passion. Joining this forum is my first step on the road back
towards what I really want to be doing.
This seems like a great place to start.

Hi everyone, my names Dan and i've just bought a Canon XM1 and am
about to start shooting some shortfilms - including docs. My
background is really in sound and music, so at present i don't
really know my aperture from my white balance! I've a lot to learn
and look forward to using this forum, cheers ;-)

Heya expressive/Ben
I've read exerpts from this book since it is supposed to be the salt-
"bible". You seem to be quite into this topic. How come?

Btw, I work for a doc-prodco in Hamburg, Germany. We are thinking
about doing something on salt. Currently we are checking the
international market for similar productions.

Martina, I was fascinated by Kurlansky's previous book (on fish)
which inspired me to plan a film project. I haven't read "Salt" yet.
Just curious.

Greetings from Munich, and see you in {LINK NOT IMPORTED} soon.

Hi everyone, I'm Lucy. I'm really interested in ethnographic film and
had a go at making my first documentary over last year and this year,
about an Afghan refugee who lives in London. It was a VERY steep
learning curve (I didn't go to film school) but a great experience.
Still I have so much to learn and this looks like an interesting
place to start. I saw on Shooting People there's a discussion going
on this week with Kate Amend. I just saw Spellbound the other day so
I'm really interested to hear about how she works...
