Tell Us About Your Documentary Project

I'm excited to say that this E-zine is all about YOU and YOUR documentary project. Our team is in process of putting together some fun webinars and tutorials and it occurred to us that, duh, we should ask our subscribers what they want!

We'd like to know what's happening with your project and if we should gear any of our content or training materials toward something specific that would help you right here, right now.

Are you currently working on a documentary project or got an idea for a documentary project? Let us know the challenges and frustrations you're dealing with as you go through the filmmaking process.
