At this point, I’ve taken quite a few workshops at Docs in Progress and seen a few documentaries. And now I’m trying to pin down exactly what topic I’d want to tackle in my first (official) documentary video.
I know one thing. I’d like to start off with a short project, because (honestly) SO much work goes into filmmaking, you wouldn’t believe.
But I still want to do this … eventually. And I know I can. I feel very strongly about that.
It’s all a matter of pacing myself and taking things one step at a time.
I’ve had all kinds of ideas about what topic to choose for a video documentary. And here’s my latest idea on my vlog! 🙂
Now, I’m not saying I’m doing this tomorrow. Or even next month. I don’t know when I’m doing this. I just know that I am. Eventually! Really! 🙂
Why don’t you start freewriting about it? Or whatever the video equivalent of freewriting is. See what your major messages about it might be…see if further thought helps you decide definitively? I, myself, don’t know anything at all about it and I’m off to google.
Thanks, Melissa! 🙂 I’ve been doing a bit of journaling. I’m considering blogging about trying to write, market, etc., while dealing with chronic illness.
I think I could offer some advice for those who are overwhelmed by chronic illness at times.
