Documentary Filmmakers?

Peace Corps Online: State: California: Documentary Filmmakers?

Hey all!

I am a RPCV who served in the Republic of Georgia and COSed May 8.

I am looking at going into the world of documentaries. Before joining the Peace Corps I worked in the film industry in various aspects of production, both on and off-set. What bothered me was the mentality that actors needed to make more and more money (5-6k per day wasn't enough) and in the same breath they would say how poor the rest of the world was. It was a constant act of hypocrisy, so I packed up and joined the Peace Corps.

My journeys in the Republic of Georgia were incredible and I left with a sense of wanting to show people the world they live in, educate them on different cultures and people they were not previously aware of. Combining my experience overseas with what I already know about the entertainment industry led me to this path and ultimately, this message board.

I would love an opportunity to get in contact with you if you can assist in my search for people knowledgeable in this field. So please feel free to write me back at your earliest convenience at
