The City of Savannah is demolishing 210 homes in East Savannah to make way for a mixed income, 'green' development. The houses to be taken down were built during WWII to house shipbuilders, and have fallen into a state of disrepair. Professor Scott Boylston (Graphic Design) is leading a city-wide effort to reclaim as much material as possible from this site before it is landfilled. The project intends to get a broad representation of Savannah involved in 'harvesting' these materials. They also have organizations like the Girl Scouts of America and a public Montessori school in the county who will be moving full buildings and renovating them for bungalows, science centers and class rooms.
Photographers are needed to shoot not only the demolition, reclamation and restoration process for the numerous projects that will result from this, but the creation of furniture, architecture, sculpture, etc. that will result from the reclamation process. If all goes well, there will be a large symposium and gallery show that presents all the photography, film and decorative arts that result.
The project has already garnered a front-page article in the Savannah Morning News. (http://savannahnow.com/news/2009-11-10/recyclers-harvest-building-materials-strathmore-estates)
Check out the blog: http://www.emergentstructures.com/
To get involved, contact Professor Boylston at email@example.com

Washington, D.C. - J-Lab: The Institute for Interactive Journalism at American University has received a $200,000 grant from the McCormick Foundation to fund eight women-led start-ups over the next two years that will generate new ideas in the world of news and information and model a spirit of journalistic entrepreneurship.
The grant also supports annual New Media Women Entrepreneurs Summits. The first summit, to be held Monday, Nov. 9, in Washington, D.C., will provide a forum for women launching innovative news projects to meet and exchange ideas. During the summit, J-Lab will release new research about women news creators and news consumers. See the agenda and register here: http://www.newmediawomen.org/events/register/
Under the new grant, a total of eight winners (four in 2010 and four in 2011) will be given $12,000 each in funding to launch their ideas and to blog about the process during the first year of their projects. The deadline for next year’s proposals is April 12, 2010. See guidelines and applications here: http://www.newmediawomen.org/site/proposal_guidelines/
The funding is part of a unique initiative to address issues of opportunity and innovation, recruitment and retention for women in journalism. Under the initial support from the McCormick Foundation, six projects have been funded and three have launched. See them at www.newmediawomen.org.
The new grant from the McCormick Foundation:
- Provides a $12,000 award for each of eight women to launch their new ideas. Four winners will be chosen in 2010 and another four in 2011.
- Honors a New Media Woman Entrepreneur of the Year in an awards program.
- Produces a day-long annual summit to showcase the work of women media entrepreneurs.
- Collects ideas, research and more at www.newmediawomen.org.
“Our new research is giving us important insights into how women news creators are redefining and shaping the news of the future,” said Jan Schaffer, executive director of J-Lab, which administers the project.
“We are pleased to work with J-Lab to recognize the most innovative and entrepreneurial media projects created by women journalists,” said Clark Bell, the McCormick Foundation’s journalism program director. “The expansion of this initiative reflects the interest, need and demand for promising new ideas.”
Eligible to apply for NMWE funding are new Web sites, mobile news services or other ideas that offer interactive opportunities to engage, inspire and improve news and information locally, nationally or among a community of interest. These can be solo ideas or team projects headed by women.
NMWE seeks to map the creative assets of women, validate ideas, and help newsrooms take some cues from big business, where top companies are disproportionately tapping women to develop creative, consumer-oriented cultures.
Check out existing research, suggest new research, nominate award winners and read the funding guidelines at www.newmediawomen.org.
The McCormick New Media Women Entrepreneurs initiative is a project of J-Lab, a center of American University’s School of Communication. J-Lab helps news organizations and citizens use new media technologies to create fresh ways for people to participate in public life. It also administers the Knight-Batten Awards for Innovations in Journalism, the Knight Citizen News Network and the New Voices community media grant program.
The McCormick Foundation supports free, vigorous and diverse news media that provide citizens the vital information they need to make reasoned decisions in a democracy. The Journalism Program supports non-profit initiatives that enhance news content, build audiences and protect the rights of journalists.

This is the next novel by David Baldacci. It's a dark thriller, set in Provence in France. We are looking for the following images:
1. Dark or dusk photos, or daytime photos with mysterious or moody feeling of the countryside of Provence. The ideal shot would be a road or path, surrounded by beautiful fields of lavender or flowers, leading up to a castle on a hill. The mix of of the beauty of the flowers, with the dark mood of the photo is what we are going for. Anything along that line could work.
2. Mysterious moody photos from Provence could also include, cobblestone roads, villas, catacombs, stairwells descending, castles, and the countryside.

BY GREG ON NOVEMBER 6, 2009 IN FROM GREG'S DESK
Every week I get phone calls and emails from assistants wanting to work on my crew. Those that call wanting to be assistants I ask one short question:
“Do you see yourself as a 1st assistant or a 2nd or 3rd?”
Some reply , “1st.” Then I say that I already have my 1st, and I typically ask my 1st who he/she would like to hire a 2nd or 3rd. If my 1st does not have anyone in mind, or all his/her choices are booked, I move on and ask my producer. On rare occasions I have had assistants come into the studio and meet with me and the next day or two I had a shoot and they got hired. I have never hired a first assistant this way. 1st assistants always come through recommendations from other people I really trust, or from a former 2nd stepping up to the plate.
If you are looking for work as an assistant I recommend the following:
Meet all the other 1st assistants out there that you can, as these are the people who will hire you, not the photographer.
Next, meet all the Producers for still imagery you can.
If you are just starting out in the field, try your best to work at a studio rental house such as Milk or Industria or any number of other studios at there in large cities. That way you will meet other assistants, producers and photographers in the field. You may also find your way on-set, learn gear and shoot protocol.
I will post some interviews from newbie assistants in the filed who are out there pounding the pavement on my blog at www.gregceoblog.com
