haven't seen the longinotto film, ben. but sounds like she's out of
a different era, too, then ;-)

anyway, a worthy goal regarding the pacing, lily. would be nice to
tilt the balance back in the direction of wiseman.

Wow, Doug, getting soft-gloved all of a sudden? ;-)

Anyway, who else is out there?

Hi everyone - I think I just failed at making my first D-Word posting
on the introduce yourself thread. i hope i'm now in the right place.
i'm a first time chatter.

so i just moved down to new york from Cambridge, MA where i lived for
the last ten years. it's good to be back home, but i do miss the
little filmmaking community i left behind. i've poked around some of
the various threads here at D-word, and i have to say i'm quite
excited to be joing this community.

i'm in the process of trying to find enough funding to carve out the
time to cut my first feature, which i shot in the Ecuadorian Amazon
last winter. I'm still learning how to talk about the film, but
essentially it is a character-driven verite piece that investigates
the discovery and subsequent massacre of the area's last completely
isolated tribe. we are still without a web site, but i'd be happy to
describe the project more fully for those who are interested.

good to be aboard.

Hi, my name is Jessica and i'm just about to graduate from
journalism at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. I'm
currently interning for a production company, where i'm doing
work for them on a documentary film. I've already done two 30
minute documentaries for one of my classes and loved it. I'm
really interested in social issues and cultures and one of the
films that i produced was on HIV and AIDS, which turned out
great. I just joined to get feedback from more experienced
filmmakers, since this is one of my passions.
Cheers

Greetings everyone!

I'm currently just a VJ (doing live visuals at clubs,events) but am
planning on seriously getting into digital videography in general
and more specifically documentary making. My aspiration and goal is
to move to tokyo japan next year to make street type documentaries
of pop/subcultural odd/interesting social phenomena. initially i'll
probably tackle easy hip or youthful issues that seem more like a
music video but eventual would like to delve into serious social
issues in tokyo/japan that require more planning and resources... i
was thinking of moving there with a 2 man crew from here seattle but
now i'm thinking it be better to find a crew once i'm there on my
own for rent, financial issues. Since i have dual status i plan on
being there indefinitely to see this endeavour through. I plan on
having a website up soon and then eventually sell my product or
footage to, really, whatever broadcast outlet that will take
it...this are is my main concern and therefore the biggest are where
i'd like to receive realistic advise, etc... also is anyone on this
forum from japan? if so please hit me up! anyways, i'm glad i found
this place! yoroshikuonegaishimasu!
