A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS:
Open Call for Submissions
At our discretion, we will often go outside the realm of digital documentary film, digital narrative film, and digital documentary photography. We will allow, in fact encourage, the discussion of everything to do with films and still photography wherever it originates and wherever it lands. This can be in a theater, on TV, a film festival, home video, DVD, VHS, a museum, a gallery, the Internet, even from a foreign shore – although because of the Web and the virtual world it inhabits, a foreign shore is something that no longer exists.

I'm a filmmaker and I also dedicated to providing genuine, fact-based product information about a variety of health and wellness supplements. With an emphasis on weight management and best pre-workout supplements, I'm also committed to product reviews regarding general health… such as brain function, heart health, men's and women’s health, beauty, meal replacements and more.
The way I conduct our reviews like VigRX Oil is by researching a supplement, ordering the product, taking the supplement and analyzing the ingredients on the product label. I also look at the cost of the product and compare this to other similar products. Though not an exact science, I try and do the very best we can to produce honest, accurate supplement reviews.

Panasonic AG-HVX-200 P2 Camcorder Review
By Bill Southworth
I should begin by pointing out that I’m fairly new to video. My idea of a camera has always been a Leica M6 hanging over my shoulder and extra rolls of film in my pocket. Now, as a burgeoning documentary maker, I find myself loaded down with bags of lighting, tripods, sound equipment, and cameras. For music videos, I frequently have a whole car full of equipment for multi-camera shoots. That said, I come to the task of evaluating the Panasonic HVX-200 with a particular point of view. I like simple, rugged cameras that produce gorgeous pictures. The HVX-200 is in my comfort zone.Read more>

Katrina: Another View
Text and Photographs by
As things settled down in Baton Rouge, and security was relaxed on the flooded areas, which was about two months after the storm, I started systematically exploring the entire region affected by Katrina, from Ocean Spring, Mississippi, which is just east of Biloxi, to Grand Isle, Louisiana, which is west and south of New Orleans.
What I saw was both amazing and frightening.
I started documenting the damage with my 4x5....Read more>

"If we must grind up human flesh and bone in the industrial machine we call modern America, then before God I assert that those who consume coal and you and I who benefit from that service because we live in comfort, we owe protection to those men first, and we owe security to their families if they die."
