How micro is a micro budget? Do you go with a union or non-union production? What are the benefits and drawbacks of websites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo? In soliciting funds, when does persistence become annoyance? What is the impact of casting decisions? How do you manage the tension between the integrity of your Art and the demands of Genre? What makes movies marketable, and how do they make money?

Eugene Martin: Longitudinal Documentary

DATE: Wednesday, May 16; TIME: 7:00PM-9:00PM; SPRING 2012

Instructor: Eugene Martin
Fee: $25. $15 for Scribe and PIFVA Members

Two of the greatest gifts a documentary filmmaker can ever ask for are 1. access to interesting subjects and 2. time. These are the ingredients of “longitudinal documentary filmmaking.” This style of filmmaking takes the long view of its subjects, following a character’s journey, often over years, allowing us to witness real-life stories. While this method rewards the filmmaker and audience with a deep understanding of subjects, it also presents unique challenges for the filmmaker. Through a case study of his film, The Anderson Monarchs, director Eugene Martin will discuss how he planned his project, organized and edited hours of footage collected from years of shooting, and will share successful strategies for maintaining relationships with subjects over time.
