This workshop with case studies takes participants through the various stages of making a documentary, from concept to financing through production, post-production, delivery and distribution.
Participants will discuss the proposal, research and development, the documentary treatment, ownership, life rights and the insurable pitfall of wild shooting, financing, production schedule, the budget, insurance and production surety aka/completion guaranty, the critical relationship between producer and director, getting into the field, clearances, post-production budgets, and the importance of transcription as an efficient editing tool.
This lecture-based workshop, with handouts, provides an overview of how to finance factual programming, big or low budget, in today’s multi-platform environment.
