If the challenge and reward of documentary filmmaking excites you, but you don't know where to start, this workshop will give you a guide to the whole process! Putting together a good documentary (and getting it seen) is like completing a three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle the size of a basketball court - with only blue pieces.
This workshop will cover the basics of this demanding and underpaid art form, from the personal to the practical. We'll go through all the stages of documentary planning, from pre-production to filming to promotion.
This workshop will cover:
You'll also receive tons of great supporting documents including sample budgets, templates of common production forms and releases as well as a range of articles.
Anyone who wants to make a documentary but isn't sure where to start. Some filmmaking experience is helpful, but not necessary.
