I am Looking for Men and Women to Interview Who......
Are Baby Boomers. This means that you were born between 1946 and 1964...or thereabouts.
Live in Orange County, California.
Currently use or have used Internet dating services.
Are comfortable in front of a camera.
Are "fun" to listen to.
Have had dating experiences that made their friends laugh, or offer them sympathy.
I am also looking for a few Internet Dating Site Owners who would like to talk about the Internet dating scene and who could perhaps "plug" their own site. I'd also like to talk with some Psychologists who deal with older people issues, Marriage Therapists, and maybe a Doctor commenting about the ability of older people having sex, etc. I'd also love to find a "Dear Abby" type person who is as wonderful as the Fruit Cake Lady was who appeared on Jay Leno many times. She has passed now, but she had some wonderful down to earth comments and advice.
What's In It For You?
Just a chance at some fame - there's no money in it for you.
An opportunity to "tell the world" about your stupid dates. Or about your wonderful date that you later married. (We want to paint a complete picture)
A DVD copy of what was taken of you for your own fun and enjoyment.
A DVD of the finished video.
What's To Be Expected?
You will be asked some questions like these: QUESTIONS
It should take less than 90 minutes of your time at your location with one camera person, a sound person, a camera and a few small lights.
You will need to sign a standard release form giving DV Post the right to do anything with your video recording for all of eternity. (We didn't write it - it's in lawyer speak)
Please note that there are no assurances that anything that is taken of you will be used. Hundreds of hours may be recorded, but the video will only be about 90 minutes.
Only your head and upper chest area will appear in the interview section. We may also want to video you at your computer as you do a dating search. We will also want to make a copy of several recent photos, especially the one that you used for online dating, and a photo of you when you were around 20.
Where Will the Documentary Be Seen?
That's the $64,000 question. Remember that show?
I have no idea where, when or even if it will ever be seen. Documentaries are a big gamble, just like theatrical films. The hope is to have it be shown in a number of film festivals and be picked up by a distribution company. Then it would go into theaters nation wide. Another possibility is for PBS to pick it up and be seen nationally. For your information, the amount that PBS pays for an independent documentary will not even pay for the materials and other expenses needed to make it.
And now - the important part.....
If you have an idea, a suggestion, a contribution, know of someone who would be good to interview, or if you would be willing to tell the camera all about your Internet dating adventures, please write to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
