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...

Welcome, Lucy. Love your name - it's my daughter's, as well. Glad
you enthused about the conference, but it's actually the guest host,
Yana Gorskaya, who edited Spellbound. Both she and Kate have great
insights to share.

Hey, there.

My name's Linnea, I've begun production on my first doc about
music in Cuba and I'm looking forward to learning from some
pros.

Hello there in the d-space. I'm just very fresh to this community and
I hope we get fun and excitement.I am a director-editor working in
Athens,Greece, and it's about a year now I have crossed through the
digital era with editing especially. Very interesting but a lot of
questions very often. Hoping discuss all them in an open mind.

Welcome, Theocharis! Bring some sun with you ...

PS. Glad to hear that they've put an end to that strike ...

Hi

I just found this forum through a posting on Shooting People, UK.
And just read through Kate Amends debate, excellent. I have just
completed a 52 minute doc, direction, camera and editing, and would
love not to repeat that particular approach.. a healthy editor
relationship would be fantastic.

If anyone has suggestions on which film festivals to enter right now
that would be a big help. The subject is new Iraqi journalists, all
character led, and so far everyone that has seen it has been gripped.

I look forward to further debates.
