Conceptualizing and making documentaries
Hi, new to this site and signed up to get feedback on an idea I have. I would love to make a documentary about an influential band I love. I have thought of the idea off and on for years. My question is how does one even begin to go about writing and producing a documentary? I am a musician and have never ventured into film before. I am passionate about the subject but feel overwhelmed by my complete lack of knowledge on anything in regards to making a film. At least knowing what the first few steps might be would help me to visualize whether or not it is something that should even be attempted. I appreciate any feedback!
