please, folks, do NOT post the same thing in two different topics.
working with a nonprofit. We're using video for internal communication
and are starting a project to produce educational videos for
commercial distribution. The experience has gotten me really excited
about the possibilities of documentary videomaking, and that's why I

and at the festival. it's a great one.
I'm currently in the post production phase of my first feature, a documentary. I was looking for a good place to come for advice on finishing my film, it seems like this is the place. So you'll probably see me posting some questions in other areas.
I look forward to talking with you.
and decided to try and connect with other doc filmmakers. my web sites
are: writinghome.com, and beingMEdia.com. if anyone is willing to
share, i'm really interested in seeing sample funding proposals. also,

this in the IDA and thought it would serve a tremedous help in
my current doc. I will be posting here and hope to find some
creative ideas...my brain is fried after a year of shooting and planning.
I posted my project on the mentor section, but wanted to say thank
you for having such a place to come and seek guidance and
inspiration. I admire those who "do it." You did it. Now I want
to join your ranks.
All my best,
I'm about to go into production on my thesis film for my MFA which will be my first feature

year or so. I've been making short independent documentaries for a number of years
(mostly from the perspective of my anthropology background) and have been supporting
myself as a freelance shooter, final cut pro editor, and dvd author. I have a very strong
connection (and commitment) to Verite style observational filmmaking. I guess it's my
