THAT'S REALLY AWESOME.
Making a documentary film is one of the best ways there is to get an important story or message out into the world, but the process of actually make it can feel daunting.
ARE YOU WONDERING..
How you will secure the money you need to make your film?

How you will develop partnerships and support for your film?
How you will find your audience and get your film in front of them?
If you will ever be able to make a living as a documentary filmmaker?
WE KNOW THIS, BECAUSE WE USED TO ASK THE SAME QUESTIONS.
And now, after everything we have learned - both through producing The Documentary Life podcast and our many years of filmmaking experience - we are going to help you cut through the confusion.
You are going to learn not only how to properly plan and fund your documentary film, but how to make sure it reaches it’s audience.
IN THE DOCUMENTARY ACADEMY COMPREHENSIVE FILMMAKING BUNDLE, WE WILL WALK YOU THROUGH THE KEY ASPECTS OF MAKING YOUR DOCUMENTARY FILM.
With the use of video tutorials and action worksheets, you'll begin to apply all that you are learning throughout the course to your own documentary film and before you know it you’ll be at the premiere of your very own documentary film, celebrating with your funders, supporters, crew and audience!
“What an interesting show! Thanks so much for getting all of the inside information on the funding side. I sincerely enjoyed listening. I am a committed fan and I am looking forward to your next show. Thank you so much for your work. It’s benefiting all of us. ”
“The Documentary Life is one of my favorite podcasts and is an invaluable resource for beginning filmmakers and veterans alike. Making docs can be a long and sometimes lonely road, and this show fosters community, offers practical advice, and provides major inspiration. There’s nothing else like it out there.”
“You and Stephanie have created something that will continue to inspire and educate for years to come. I look forward to making the most of this wonderful resource as I continue to grow as a storyteller”
“There are a lot of filmmaker podcasts out there, but The Documentary Life podcast is great because of its focus on documentaries. Documentary is a special type of beast so it's great to have a resource to talk with people who have done it before and are doing it now.”
“I want to thank Chris and Stephanie for pushing me off the ledge and into the film making world. The early podcast (#8 - How to Finish Your Documentary Film) did for me what Chris had intended it to do - deliver a piece of inspiration and confidence for me to get on with making my film and forced me to ask myself - "if not now, when?" I now have a completed feature length film, and can honestly say I am living 'My Documentary Life'”
“What you’re doing with The Documentary Life nobody else is doing and it’s an area that needs to be looked at and touched upon. Being a filmmaker is not separate from being a human being in incorporating your whole life in an expression through documentaries. They look at the how-to but they don’t look at the why-to enough, so I applaud you with what you have put together and what you’re looking at because I think it’s vitally important.”
Documentary films change the lives of audiences every day.
Becoming filmmakers changed ours.
