A forum to share notices, opportunities, etc...
I saw this in the NALIP newsletter, don't know the artist but wondered if anyone would be interested:
Director and Co-Producer for Doc
I am looking for a director and co-producer to work with on a doc film about my life story called George Mendoza Colors of the Wind. This will be my third film for PBS nationwide. This film will take place in New Mexico where I live and paint. Colors of the Wind is now part of the Smithsonian institution affiliation Programs traveling art exhibits. I would also like to film one of my art openings in the future.
I am a legally blind artist and designer. I can be reached at email@example.com and my phone is 575-522-1074. You can send me your bio and resume to my email but I love to talk over the phone! Thank you very much.
Here's a new opportunity that you might want to jump on -- the due date is soon:
Contract Project Director: Wind River Virtual Museum -
Wyoming PBS seeks proposals from qualified individuals and organizations to serve as the Project Director for the Wind River Virtual Museum Project."The project will 1) provide Wyoming’s two Native American tribes– the Eastern Shoshone and the Northern Arapaho – with an archive of high definition images of ancestral artifacts currently inaccessible to tribal members; 2) document the reconnection by tribal elders with ancestral artifacts removed by collectors as long as 170 years ago, and the elders description and interpretation of those artifacts; and 3) will, through a television production, help inform and educate non-Indians about the history and culture of these resources and indigenous people
This project will be a joint effort enlisting the participating tribes, respective museums, Central Wyoming College and Wyoming PBS. The Wind River Virtual Museum will enlist high definition video to create vivid 360-degree digital images of artifacts historically associated with these two tribes but now stored in non-native institutions distant from the reservation, possibly including the Smithsonian, the Museum of Natural History in New York, the Field Museum in Chicago, the University of Pennsylvania and the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody."
The due date for proposals is 3:00 pm Mountain Time on Monday, August 15, 2011, and they accept e-mails, faxes or mail. Details about the project and how to submit a proposal may be obtained by calling Sonja Fairfield at Wyoming PBS 307-856-6944 or from the Wyoming PBS website: www.wyomingpbs.org.
