Antidote for Isolation: Virtual Work-Together for Documentary Filmmakers

Thu, 03/04/2021 - 1:00pm - 2:30pm

Feeling unmotivated? Want to carve out dedicated time to work on your documentary? Join us from near and far, wherever you are, to edit your latest cut or work on that grant or festival application! Showing up can be the hardest part, and we’re making space for just that. We’ll start with a quick check-in to set intentions, have the chat open, and provide an optional playlist and breakout rooms along the way if you could use or lend support or want to make new connections. Dive into your work knowing that you’re not alone!

When you register, let us know what you’re interested in focusing on during this session. This will help us place you in an initial breakout room that you can return to if you’d like:

  • The Edit: structuring a scene?
  • The Application: writing a festival or grant application?
  • The Story: focusing on theme, plot, and character arcs?
  • The Process: in need of inspiration and focus? a great general space as well.

How it works:

    1:00pm ET: Welcome

    1:10: Check-In
    Set your intentions or goals with a small breakout group as your accountability buddies.

    1:20: Work!
    Everyone will be muted in the main work space. Keep your cameras on or off. Chat will be open. Playlist provided.

    2:15: Optional Return to Breakout Room (or keep working in the main space)
    Update your buddies on your progress and set new intentions!

    2:25: Send-Off
