free online documentaries August 5, 2011 at 9:53 am

great site, please contact us so we can help promote your site on our documentary site

Free Documentary Online September 14, 2011 at 8:27 am

This documentary site is new, but perhaps one of the few documentary sites with such a beautifully implemented viewing functionality. Not only can you watch full length documentaries, but you can watch a video trailer or preview of the documentary on the same page you’re browsing. If the preview looks interesting, just click the “watch full documentary” button under the summery to watch the full film in its entirety or scroll down and preview the next film.

The documentary archive is continually growing and the current collection is pretty potent (meaty). Another neat aspect of this site is that it contains some very interesting and informative documentaries (and video lectures) not found at its counterparts websites. Again, freedocumentaryonline.org is fairly new, but this site is motivated & totally un-dominated; if you’re a documentary lover. I don’t think this will be the last time you hear about this site.

@lisa
found a film which could be interesting to you

http://documentary.net/amo-beethoven-i-love-beethoven/

Venezuela. One cannot only hear with ones ears. Some people feel the sounds with their skin or with their hearts because their sense of hearing doesn’t function. In the Venezuelan city of Barquisimeto, deaf children not only learn how to play instruments, but also how to sing in sign language. The fact that the children do not hear voices is only one of the many handicaps when one lives at the edge of society. However, at the music school they discover a world that is open to each one of them.
The film observes the everyday lives and development of its protagonists in a precise and intimate way. Music as the way out and as a chance for those who practice it.

Royalty Free Music April 27, 2012 at 7:30 am

Congradulations for this collection. We would like to add our service of stock music library with the online tool for real time music test over any production with the iFrame feature. You can have a look at : http://www.themusicase.com/iframe/

Elizavetta7Nor December 4, 2016 at 6:28 pm

Here are my criteria for choosing the project:
1) A unique script
2) Marketing with daily payouts
3) Famous administration (people who have already launched projects and worked successfully)
4) Elaborated PR-campaign (my experience helps me to see how the admin advertised his brain-child. I see it immediately who makes it half-assed and who wants the project to work for many months)
5) International promotion (the company is promoted by several countries at the same time)
If the project suits me by many criteria, I join it in the first days, gather team.
