Join DocFilmSA for the first session in our docSHARE webinar programme:
Development… the start of a documentary + Q&A
Guest Speaker: Thandi Davids
Session content & focus: The session will explore what your first steps should be and what you should be thinking about when you have had a great idea for a documentary and now need to begin the long journey of actually making the film. From initial story development, competitor analysis and rights protection, to considering how you’ll fund the project, how do you determine what tasks lie ahead of you and in what order they should be pursued? We examine the key ingredients in a pitch deck at the development stage and what success indicators a funder or project partner may be looking for.
Thurs 16 Feb 2023 at 4-5pm via Zoom
