Christine, since you're a professional member, why don't you ask your question again in the Editing topic, and perhaps give us a sense of what you have, so we can tell you if we agree that something is missing.

hello, I'm a filmmaker from Barcelona working on handmade films. I like very much to film by myself and edit, but also to be involved in projects with other people. My prefered style of filming is close to a more photographic or "cinematographic" one. I can also offer long experience on documentaries done for public TV and also as a freelance.

Hi!

I'm the director of Finding Mabel, a feature length documentary film, about Argentina's infamous "Dirty War".

Finding Mabel is a gripping documentary that follows a young woman's journey to Argentina, to piece together the enigmatic disappearance of the woman she was named after, one of the 30,000 people who disappeared during Argentina's last military dictatorship. Part scavenger hunt, part self-discovery, Finding Mabel intelligently weaves Argentina's recent dark past with today's polarizing struggle for justice.

Filming begins Monday, May 7th in Argentina. The director is launching a crowd-funding campaign to raise funds to complete the film. Please use the below link to access additional information as well as to donate.

Hello to all Documentary filmmakers, artist, and enthusiast!

I'm Raymund Cruz from the Philippines, a country that has over 150 different languages (from indigenous to foreign types). Speaking of languages, I am glad to be part of the d-word community. Despite the variety of artist speaking different dialects, this website has enabled us to all communicate through what we all love, and that is DOCUMENTARY.

Well for me, I am a filmmaker in my free time. It is an intense hobby, since in it was my full time occupation during my previous career. Now starting over, I currently work in a Design and Construction firm in charge of renovating Casinos and Hotels. It's difficult to support a future family as well while stubbornly struggling to create works that is for personal reasons. However eventually, me and my wife plan to do such attempts abroad.

As for experience in films, I had held different parts of production in narratives, television shows, and documentaries. This ranged from directing, producing, screenwriting, editing, production design, and cinematography. My real interest however is the documentary genre. So I plan to actively pursue it, for it has the most powerful effect on people and the ability to reform them.

As a team, me and my wife are about to launch a production company as our stress reliever from the real world. Here, we will create short films, documentaries, and theater performances that are used to express ourselves through different subjects. Some plans are in the works, while the more ambitious projects will need to wait. One of the plans is to create a drama therapy for various people.

So there goes a long introduction. Hope to collaborate and learn from this useful website.
