Insider information and workshops for people who want to make great documentaries.
You want to make a great documentary - the film you’ve been envisioning in your head.
You have time and money at stake - so why not work with an experienced, intuitive, intelligent no-strings attached collaborator?
Stephanie Hubbard is an award winning documentary editor, writer and producer. She created the Documentary Insider Blog and Workshops when she got angry at seeing filmmakers exhausted and broke after production - without what they needed to make the film they wanted. Once she started teaching, she quickly recognized the value to filmmakers of having someone who knew the process from the point of view of an editor, but could communicate as an advisor rather than an employee.
Since she has started working with filmmakers she has saved her Documentary Insider Workshop participants thousands of dollars on false starts, wasted shoots and weeks of editing looking to “discover” the story. They have moved with confidence into their artistic process - capturing and creating the documentary they have dreamed about.
The Documentary Insider. Clarity, Coaching, Creation.
Get Clarity: Know your story. Really know it inside and out. Be able to adapt to it as you shoot. Or if you’ve been wading through years of footage - fall in love with it again - right to the finish line.
Get Coaching. When you are really making art, it is hard to keep going sometimes. It’s great to work with someone who’s been there themselves, and been there with a lot of other filmmakers going through the doubts and fears we all go through. Build a community. Making a documentary is hard enough. You don’t have to do it alone.
Get Creation. Be challenged to create the best possible film you can make. In the workshop you will be asked to go a little farther, be more original, tell the story the most amazing way it can be told. Additionally, you’ll get support and access to creative services to jump start your project. One stop shopping for archivists, sound mixers, camera people - you name it.
