@Filmin140Panel Right to it: do you have to live in NYC or LA to make it in the film industry? How sure is success if you make the move? #filmin140 -9:02 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures I’m in venice beach, cali #filmin140 -9:02 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina .@shericandler I’m based out of Atlanta. #filmin140 -9:04 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel David, where are you based? #filmin140 -9:04 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures Master of the obvious here…Regardless, of where you live it’s up to you, right? #filmin140 -9:04 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@johnfrisbie RT @FilmThreat: RT @Filmin140Panel: TweetChat (http://bit.ly/abFubH) is awesome. #filmin140 -9:04 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel @jonhillpictures True, but the perception has been, for years, that to make a living as a filmmaker, you have to go West #filmin140 -9:05 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@WaterholeMovie Living in LA helped in no way to get my film made, just made me closer to certain resources. #filmin140 -9:05 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler @bruckmachina has anyone told you that it would be better if you were in LA or NYC? #filmin140 -9:05 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina I’m living in the ATL, and I’d say somewhere between “Making it and not making it.” #filmin140 -9:05 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@lmcnelly If location is you’re plan, you lose RT @Filmin140Panel: do you have to live in NYC or LA to make it in the film industry? #filmin140 -9:05 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel It’s not so much a matter of “if,” but “when.” #filmin140 -9:05 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@philontilt I absolutely believe you can make it living anywhere. @Filmin140Panel: do you have to live in NYC or LA to make it in the film? #filmin140 -9:06 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures I do believe you have to have the relationships no matter wher you are. #filmin140 -9:06 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina I’ve got several creative friends that are doing well in LA and New York, several that are struggling, a mixed bag for sure. #filmin140 -9:06 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel @bruckmachina You had a popular film in “The Signal,” though. Were you tempted to make the move? Was it suggested? #filmin140 -9:06 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@lmcnelly resources r huge RT @WaterholeMovie: Living in LA helped in no way to get my film made, just made me closer to certain resources. #filmin140 -9:06 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@johnfrisbie @WaterholeMovie closer to resources didn’t help ? #filmin140 -9:06 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel @WaterholeMovie What resources were more readily available? Crew? Equipment? #filmin140 -9:07 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures I heard you have to move to ny or la a lot, however, I got most of my training in Atlanta. #filmin140 -9:07 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler I was thinking from an agent or talent perspective, have you been told if you were in either place it would be better? #filmin140 -9:07 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel @jonhillpictures When did you make the move? #filmin140 -9:07 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@WaterholeMovie That said, it is so nice being near a large group of people that love and do the same thing I do. #filmin140 -9:08 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina It’s more about relationships. That’s an argument for doing it in your home city. Long term support that you can build upon. #filmin140 -9:08 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures There are definitely a ton of resources out her in LA…You still have to have the relationships and know how to make them work. #filmin140 -9:08 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@WaterholeMovie We shot all on location in Reno, NV and used 90% LA talent because we could find no one up there. @Filmin140Panel #filmin140 -9:09 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@philontilt I agree w/ @WaterholeMovie. More resources in LA an NY, actors crew etc. But some things are easier to do here in small town MN. #filmin140 -9:09 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina .@Filmin140Panel Yes, I was very close to moving to LA at one point. I might be again if the door opens just right. #filmin140 -9:09 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures Well, they (agents) definitely have an easier time setting you up with meetings at the last minute if you’re in town. #filmin140 -9:09 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@lmcnelly just made a film in a very remote area. getting equipment was a big issue. Closest grip rental 5 hrs away #filmin140 -9:09 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@FilmThreat We made the move away from LA this year. But this job can be done anywhere, especially if you’re off the junket scene. #filmin140 -9:09 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler @WaterholeMovie I never felt like indies stuck together in LA, no scene really. May be changing now that we are finding each othr #filmin140 -9:09 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel @bruckmachina What would entice you to followthrough with the move? #filmin140 -9:10 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@johnfrisbie @lmcnelly and if you only have one house to choose from, it’s tough to negotiate #filmin140 -9:10 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel RT @shericandler: @WaterholeMovie I never felt like indies stuck together in LA, no scene really. #filmin140 -9:10 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures David is sooooo right! I could easily get a movie up-and-running with the hometown folks in the ATL as I could out here in LA. #filmin140 -9:10 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@WaterholeMovie @johnfrisbie it helped the actual production, but it did not get help the funding/green light to get made. #filmin140 -9:10 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@philontilt True. That’s why I have twitter. RT @WaterholeMovie: it’s nice being near a group of people that love and do the same thing I do. #filmin140 -9:10 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina Lately though, I’ve found that I might be more useful as a storyteller if I pull from the city I know the best. #filmin140 -9:10 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@atlfilm365 @shericandler I’m here now. Was out getting my network on with the Georgia Entertainment Association. :-) #filmin140 -9:11 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina Okay, I’m having a hard time sending SOS signals in 140 characters here. Bear with me. I talk a lot. #filmin140 -9:11 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@lmcnelly they don’t in Pittsburgh either RT @shericandler: @WaterholeMovie I never felt like indies stuck together in LA, #filmin140 -9:11 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures Leigh and I moved out to LA in 2004 #filmin140 -9:11 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@WaterholeMovie @shericandler I def think that is changing, slowly. Meeting tons of awesome LA indie filmmakers recently. #filmin140 -9:11 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel What about the lack of knowledge when it comes to locations outside NYC or LA? Easier/cheaper to find locations when folks… #filmin140 -9:11 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler those cities are so expensive to live in, isnt it better to keep the rent low and shoot outside of there? #filmin140 -9:11 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel … don’t know how much money they can get out of you, or what it means to have a film crew on site. #filmin140 -9:11 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@lmcnelly it wasn’t an option at all RT @johnfrisbie: @lmcnelly and if you only have one house to choose from, it’s tough to negotiate #filmin140 -9:11 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@WaterholeMovie Twitter has been just as good! RT @philontilt: True. That’s why I have twitter. #filmin140 -9:12 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel RT @WaterholeMovie: @shericandler I def think that is changing, slowly. Meeting tons of awesome LA indie filmmakers recently. #filmin140 -9:12 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@FilmThreat RT @WaterholeMovie: Twitter has been just as good! RT @philontilt: True. Thats why I have twitter. #filmin140 -9:12 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@johnfrisbie location fees can be negotiated more easily than crew, camera, production, post, experience #filmin140 -9:12 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina Lot of freedom in Atl lately. There’s tons of crew support, pro’s working in the industry that want our lil indy stuff to work. #filmin140 -9:12 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures I find there are knowlegeable crew bases all over – you just have to ask. #filmin140 -9:12 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler and good acting talent? are they everywhere too? #filmin140 -9:13 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@lmcnelly I’m starting to think of the internet as my city. #filmin140 -9:14 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @bruckmachina back in the 80′s ATL was the sequel capital of the U.S, so there’s a ton of folks ready to jump back in. #filmin140 -9:14 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina .@Filmin140Panel That’s a benefit to a city like ATL. People are more willing to work with indy’s BC it doesn’t happen everyday. #filmin140 -9:14 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@FilmThreat RT @lmcnelly: Im starting to think of the internet as my city. #filmin140 -9:14 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@lmcnelly Sometimes, but you can import actors easily RT @shericandler: and good acting talent? are they everywhere too? #filmin140 -9:14 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler definitely, I network everyday RT @lmcnelly: Im starting to think of the internet as my city. #filmin140 -9:14 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@atlfilm365 Maybe not. But I think filmmakers could develop it locally. RT @shericandler: and good acting talent? are they everywhere too? #filmin140 -9:14 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina @jonhillpictures City is SLAMMED right now. People are moving up in positions left and right. Hard to crew up. #filmin140 -9:15 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel @jonhillpictures What keeps you in LA? #filmin140 -9:15 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures absolutely. you just have to have a great casting director to help you find them. david g. green’s GEORGE WASHINGTON for example. #filmin140 -9:15 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler @lmcnelly did you find that expensive to fly in actors for Up Country? #filmin140 -9:15 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@dylanschenker The internet is def. my city.. I mean, I live in NJ (soon NY) but if it not for the net, would not know any of this even existed #filmin140 -9:15 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel @bruckmachina What keeps you out of LA? #filmin140 -9:15 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@johnfrisbie @jonhillpictures the 80s were 30 years ago…which only goes to my perspective of limited resources – it works, but how? curious #filmin140 -9:15 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@philontilt Shot a film w/ @kingisafink in MN, 8 locations all free & didn’t have to get a permit to shoot in town. Happy to have us there #filmin140 -9:15 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@TheLoneOlive RT @kingisafink: RT @FilmThreat: 25 minutes to tonight’s #filmin140 panel! Join us! Details here: http://t.co/1wzIC1b -9:16 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@FilmThreat @dylanschenker I live in NJ too. Lots of good things come from NJ… #filmin140 -9:16 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina .@shericandler For me, talent is about building relationships with a group of performers. Not so big on the casting call. #filmin140 -9:16 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@lmcnelly Not really. It was certainly worth it RT @shericandler: @lmcnelly did you find that expensive to fly in actors for Up Country? #filmin140 -9:16 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler RT @philontilt: Shot a film w/ @kingisafink in MN, 8 locations all free no permit to shoot in town. Happy to have us there #filmin140 -9:16 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel @philontilt Did that sentiment last throughout, though? Seems the luster of filmmakers wears down pretty fast… #filmin140 -9:17 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @Filmin140Panel I work in film, commercials and photography and there’s a lot of all of that here in Los Angeles. #filmin140 -9:17 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler @bruckmachina do you tend to use the same ppl in your films? #filmin140 -9:17 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@atlfilm365 Having known @bruckmachina for a while, and lots of folks who have worked with @jonhillpictures, they’ve got a great network. #filmin140 -9:18 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina .@Filmin140Panel I have a support network here. I’m developing my own material. We just don’t need LA at the moment. #filmin140 -9:18 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@lmcnelly The advantage of casting outside your city is for the price of a plane ticket, you get a vastly superior cast, which can cut csts #filmin140 -9:18 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @bruckmachina yes, but if you find yourself shooting somewhere where all your folks cannot go and the story’s there.casting. #:^) #filmin140 -9:18 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina .@shericandler To some degree yes. I’ve worked with most of them on shorts, and I write with players in mind. #filmin140 -9:19 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@philontilt It did last, & continues to even though we’ve been done for a month. RT @Filmin140Panel: Did that sentiment last throughout? #filmin140 -9:19 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@dylanschenker @FilmThreat I agree. NJ itself not even counting New York def has a strong supportive grassroots art communities all over #filmin140 -9:19 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler like a filmmaker with multiple rev streams! RT @jonhillpictures:I work in film, commercials & photography all of that here in LA #filmin140 -9:19 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@atlfilm365 I’ve seen the great things ATL filmmakers have done over the last few years because they were tapped in w/the larger community. #filmin140 -9:19 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@RamonaMaramonte @shericandler We usually use all the same people for our shoots. #filmin140 -9:19 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @bruckmachina yeahhh, david wouldn’t let us in so we had to move out here…#:^) #filmin140 -9:20 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina .@jonhillpictures For sure on a good casting agent. #filmin140 -9:20 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler for the non LA/NYC ppl, how do actors find you, get cast in your work? #filmin140 -9:21 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @johnfrisbie the crew (and there kids who are talented crew now as well) all want to work on creative projects. #filmin140 -9:21 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler are there good casting agents not in the big cities? how have you found them? or do you rely on the big agencies? #filmin140 -9:21 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@lmcnelly Internet, almost entirely RT @shericandler: for the non LA/NYC ppl, how do actors find you, get cast in your work? #filmin140 -9:21 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel What are some practical tips to help filmmakers build local networks and relationships? #filmin140 -9:22 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@dylanschenker Aren’t there websites that let you search regionally when looking for work? Mandy? #filmin140 -9:22 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler RT @Filmin140Panel: What are some practical tips to help filmmakers build local networks and relationships? #filmin140 -9:22 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@WaterholeMovie Indeed! RT @jonhillpictures: @Filmin140Panel I work in film and photography and there’s a lot of all of that here in LA. #filmin140 -9:22 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@FilmThreat @dylanschenker Is Mandy still around? Haven’t worked on crew for a while. #filmin140 -9:22 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@johnfrisbie @Filmin140Panel do ppl still use meetup? entry-level socializing for industry methods are what in ATL? #filmin140 -9:23 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @shericandler thanks sherri – it definitely keeps you busy! #filmin140 -9:23 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@philontilt I use Mandy.com & the @mnfilmtv website. RT @shericandler: for the non LA/NYC ppl, how do actors find you, get cast in your work? #filmin140 -9:23 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@dylanschenker @FilmThreat I still check it for work every so often. I mean, I’m not a filmmaker per se.. but it still is a useful resource #filmin140 -9:23 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina .@jonhillpictures The other guys with POP have just made two TV movies for MTV. They’re bring LA to their hometown. #filmin140 -9:24 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @bruckmachina you guys will have more folks moving back in soon from all around you – just wait! #filmin140 -9:24 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@atlfilm365 @johnfrisbie There’s been several groups over the years. One the keys for survival has been to actually go out and shoot. #filmin140 -9:24 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@VampireMob @shericandler I think filmmakers w/out casting dirs can find talent & see actors in action at local theaters, gr8 place 2 cast! #filmin140 -9:25 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@Filmin140Panel When it comes to acting, is the majority of work still in LA or NYC? #filmin140 -9:25 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@atlfilm365 @johnfrisbie Too many groups meet, then produce nothing, or work on one project and then they’re done. #filmin140 -9:25 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @dylanschenker yes, except you’re competing against hundreds of folks for the same position – can be a little discouraging. #filmin140 -9:25 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@johnfrisbie @atlfilm365 going out and shooting is good advice for all. #filmin140 -9:25 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler RT @VampireMob: I think filmmakers w/out casting dirs can find talent & see actors in action at local theaters, gr8 place 2 cast! #filmin140 -9:25 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@FilmThreat @VampireMob But there’s a big difference in actors perfect for theater and actors perfect for film. Doesn’t always translate. #filmin140 -9:25 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@dylanschenker yeah, most small towns have local theaters (live theater) don’t they? doesn’t equate talent, but good place to look, right? #filmin140 -9:25 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina Best way to build local networks is make a movie with anyone, screen it where people screen stuff, and start trading resources. #filmin140 -9:26 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@lmcnelly Absolutely RT @VampireMob: @shericandler I think filmmakers can find talent & see actors in action at local theaters #filmin140 -9:26 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @bruckmachina absolutely and we’ve got several projects that have to get started out here so we can bring it back to the ATL. #filmin140 -9:26 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@johnfrisbie internet production has meant what for ATL et. al. outside of NYLA? #filmin140 -9:26 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@dylanschenker @jonhillpictures Oh trust me, I know – I have rarely gotten a job via online applications. It seems networking is the only way #filmin140 -9:26 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler or using Twitter! #filmin140 -9:27 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina INDY begins with DIY so it’s hard start a conversation if you’re not making something. #filmin140 -9:27 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@lmcnelly @FilmThreat it doesn’t always translate, but that’s part of the trick of casting, figuring out who will work. #filmin140 -9:27 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@atlfilm365 @johnfrisbie My advice is to think smaller now days. Bang out several 3 to 5 minute shorts. It’s a great way to build a network. #filmin140 -9:27 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@VampireMob @FilmThreat True, but if you’re in the middle of nowhere, not near a major city, it might be your only place to start. #filmin140 -9:27 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@dylanschenker I agree with making small stuff. You can make small stuff anywhere. Make it visual and non-linear to avoid casting if need be. #filmin140 -9:28 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler c’mon guys, there are free social media tools now and filmmakers have a hard time using them. takes time and work thats all #filmin140 -9:54 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@shericandler @bruckmachina aww where is @jon_reiss to hear this?? #filmin140 -9:54 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@bruckmachina .@VampireMob Yes exactly! We had 300 extras for a music vid. Make it fun, give em tools and now they’re 300 motivated end users. #filmin140 -9:55 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@dylanschenker How do you define “tools” I mean you’re already on Twitter. Just being part of this hashtag convo you’ve utilized it well #filmin140 -9:55 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@SanfordLewis @deadcenter #filmin140 because virtual collaboration is NOT equivalent of f2f for many reasons -9:55 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@matthewfong @shericandler well theres the problem..maybe there should be software thats made for filmmakers and dead simple to use #filmin140 #filmin140 -9:55 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@matthewfong Well if I can, I’d do it for free ;) If you have ideas, I’ll try to build something for you re: social media/tech for filmmakers #filmin140 -9:56 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@aprildenee @bruckmachina I agree! Casting calls are good when you’re not established yet. But once you are, just “pick your Morgan Freeman.” #filmin140 -11:28 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@aprildenee RT @bruckmachina INDY begins with DIY so it’s hard start a conversation if you’re not making something. #filmin140 -11:37 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@aprildenee @atlfilm365 Some think shorts a waste of resources toward a feature, but I agree they can build relationships & be calling cards. #filmin140 -11:44 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@atlfilm365 @aprildenee Yes, but people should think beyond shorts as calling cards. Shorts can be part of a body of work. #filmin140 -11:47 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@aprildenee @shericandler A major reason I’m moving to NYC. Far too many events I need to attend that I’m just not there for. #filmin140 -11:48 PM Oct 27th, 2010

@aprildenee @atlfilm365 Agreed! Shorts really are their own art form. In fact, a good short can be so much harder to write than a feature. #filmin140 -12:00 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@TWEAK @shericandler MN filmmaking: under the radar, doing it anyway, very creative, very collaborative, IFP, great locations. #filmin140 -12:03 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@aprildenee @shericandler Also a pretty big film meetup in Charlotte – http://bit.ly/1yS9pI – 600+ members, little over a year old #filmin140 -12:05 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@aprildenee RT @atlfilm365: @FilmThreat Every film community of all sizes has things going on, it’s important to expand what it means to be involved. #filmin140 -12:06 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@philontilt Yep. RT @TWEAK: @shericandler MN filmmaking: under the radar, doing it anyway, very creative, collaborative, IFP, great locations #filmin140 -12:08 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@aprildenee General question for #filmin140 – What about doc film? Best to be in NYC for that, or does it lend itself even more to being anywhere? -12:09 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@aprildenee Bingo! Enter… an engagement coordinator! :-) RT @shericandler: @matthewfong Relationships can’t be built on automated programs. #filmin140 -12:22 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@aprildenee @shericandler @matthewfong PS – Can’t tell you how much I hate getting automated Twitter DM’s – bleh! #filmin140 -12:24 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @atlfilm365 absolutely and especially now. shorts are on a major comeback with more marketing opportunities than ever. #filmin140 -12:35 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@michaeldlynch I seen people do it with FaceTime for ADR RT @FilmThreat: RT @dylanschenker: Imagine directing a film over the internet, hah. #filmin140 -12:35 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@michaeldlynch Great idea RT @shericandler: I definitely want a database of alt screening venues and film societies actively seeking films #filmin140 -12:36 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @aprildenee or PDM. #filmin140 -12:39 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @aprildenee I think you should be wherever your story is and then go from there. Your network might be right under your feet. #filmin140 -12:43 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @jonhillpictures that was regarding your doc filmmaker question april. #filmin140 -12:44 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@aprildenee @jonhillpictures Yes! I applied for PDM training w/ @fledglingfund & @workingfilms in NYC next month. Right up my alley! Excited! #filmin140 -12:44 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @aprildenee and get Jon Reis’ book “Think Outside The Box Office”! You’ll be ahead of the class – he copined the term, PDM. #filmin140 -12:47 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @jonhillpictures uhmm, that was “coined” the term PDM… #filmin140 -12:54 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@aprildenee @jonhillpictures Thx!! And I agree re: being where the story is. My doc is in CLT & NYC, so haven’t thought much beyond that yet. #filmin140 -12:56 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@aprildenee @jonhillpictures Yes! I applied for PMD training w/ @fledglingfund & @workingfilms in NYC next month. Right up my alley! Excited! #filmin140 -1:01 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @jonhillpictures PMD not PDM. Man, my typing was never good. #filmin140 -1:04 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@brandoneculture @jonhillpictures thx for following, I’ve returned it re: #filmin140 movies aren’t just a passion, #documentary is a specific biz unit/w.s. -1:20 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@jonhillpictures @brandoneculture right back atcha. #filmin140 -1:32 AM Oct 28th, 2010

@MegaMarkHarris @philontilt I shot a short in MN. http://bit.ly/9BL9EX lots of talented and dedicated people to work with #filmin140 -7:50 AM Oct 28th, 2010
