Most video seminars focus on “the gear” when talking about the DSLR as a movie making tool, but few provide a case study, showing by example how to take an idea, create a project, and monetize it. There is a high demand right now for story-driven content for the web and beyond. We live in an age where the content creator is king/queen of their content’s financial destiny — the gates to the kingdom are open to all who are willing to think outside the box and do “the work.”
This seminar provides information on how to take a personal project from concept to reality and maximize its potential in the marketplace. Gail Mooney’s film Opening Our Eyes won Best Documentary at the 2012 Los Angeles Women’s International Film Festival, Best Documentary at the 2012 Orlando Film Festival, Utopian Visionary Award at the 2012 Utopia Film Festival, and Best Humanitarian Documentary at the 2012 Bare Bones International Film Festival. In this seminar she uses the film as an example of how she made her project happen.
Great advice for making a documentary and also great inspiration for anyone who wants to make a documentary. Worth spending time watching this video.
