Here's What You'll Find On This Site:
What was once reserved for an elite few, making documentaries is now within reach of anyone with access to a camcorder and the internet.
Heck, you don't even need a camera!
And documentaries are HOT. Major news organizations including CNN, New York Times, Al Jazeera and TIME have recently added new documentary divisions or a commitment to documentary programming. Some are saying we are entering a new "golden age" of documentary programming. Even Netflix is getting in the game creating their own original documentary content.
So jump in. Follow your passion. Now's the time!
Whether it's highlighting a local sports team, documenting a mental illness center or following your own life's story, making a documentary today is limited only by your imagination and determination.
