Documentary Video Production.
The best camera work in the world will mean nothing if you don’t have a great story. Before we start shooting documentary film, we spend a lot of time on research and planning. Whiteboards and scene cards are my friends. Our team always plot out what we think the three-act structure of the film might be, that is, the setup, the conflict and the resolution of the film.
We structure for your film is to watch and study films that have similar themes to the one you want to make. Even though I primarily make documentary films, we study the structure of drama films as well as documentaries. As you watch the characters in these other films, We are prepared to understand the themes of your film, the more likely you’ll be able to have your eyes open to characters that you hadn’t considered in the original plan.
We’ve found that micro documentaries give our clients an opportunity to create mission-driven authentic storytelling. This approach involves a mixture of interviews, cinematic footage, and most importantly good storytelling that creates and emotional connection with the audience.
Micro docs can help engage donors or investors, advance your policy or mission, or get the word out about how your organization is making a difference, and the good work your doing in the world.
