Hi, I'm new here...
Man, this is a pretty rad site. Thanks for having me! I'm very new to the filmmaking world... not really into camera tricks or, uh, *plot*, but I'm working on it.
I'm starting a short form doc about the Grilled Cheese Invitational, held annually in Los Angeles and spreading nationally.
Ultimately, I hope the short doc will help me get funding for a feature doc, but I want to get the short out first to see if the story has claws. Of course, I think it does, but what of it?
If you have info about how to get started, I welcome it! I'm in Oakland, CA currently but will be filming primarily in LA.
Professionally, I work for Jaman, an indy film distribution/download site available here: http://www.jaman.com It's the ultimate in coolness.
For my job, I go to myriad film festivals. If you want to know what festivals are coming up or what's going on at any given festival, let me know and I'll spill.
