The Center for Social Media at American University has created yet another helpful and informative study examining the work of nonfiction filmmakers. This one is "Honest Truths: Documentary Filmmakers on Challenges in Their Work"; a report based on conversations with 45 filmmakers about the ethical challenges they face in the creation of their work and how they handle them.
It was standing room only at the LEF/DocYard sponsored panel "When Does A Story Become a Film?: From Idea to Documentary" at IFFB on Sunday. Filmmaker Chico Colvard teased stories from his non-fiction colleagues Annie Sundberg, Ian Cheney, Jeanne Jordan and Steve Ascher to hear their many lessons learned in the field.
