Creativity Enhanced: Documentary Tools For Smarter, More Accessible Storytelling

Mar 14, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Many filmmakers are leaving storytelling and audience/revenue opportunities on the table. By using creative techniques, filmmakers can make their films narratively sophisticated and accessible to new collaborators and audiences. Films like CODA and CRIP CAMP demonstrate the economic and narrative benefits of embracing accessible and dynamic production methodologies, from casting and hiring to scripting, framing/composition, and editing. This panel offers filmmakers tangible tools to bring more creativity and accessibility to their projects, and injects new energy into filmmakers’ tried-and-tested practices. Join filmmakers from FWD-Doc for an interactive discussion about how to enhance your storytelling and audience engagement skills in both documentary and scripted film.
