How to Make and Distribute a Documentary without Losing Your Mind or Going Broke


Documentary filmmaking requires more than just a passion for the subject, whether it be one's personal story or that of someone else, a historical event or a startling discovery, a political movement or a heinous crime. Making a documentary and getting it in front of an audience requires determination, careful planning, money, and a strong production team. With over thirty years of experience in filmmaking, author Betsy Chasse mentors readers every step of the way with a down-to-earth approach and invaluable advice. Chapters cover topics such as:

  • Choosing a Subject
  • Developing a Business Plan
  • Securing Financial Backing
  • Assembling a Production Team
  • Nailing Interviews and Shooting B-Roll
  • Getting through Post-Production
  • Distributing and Marketing the Film

Both novices and experienced filmmakers will benefit from this all-inclusive guide. With the right knowledge, persistence, and The Documentary Filmmaking Master Class in their camera bags, readers will not only turn their visions into reality, they'll be able to share the results with others and navigate the process with confidence.
