Essentials bootcamp
If you’re looking to brush up on your producing skills, please join us for a 4-part series that takes a deep dive into the essentials of documentary filmmaking. These 3-hour workshops include participant case studies, special guests, resources for future projects, and an opportunity to connect with other filmmakers.

This workshop is ideal for filmmakers who have taken our Intro to Doc Producing series, and for people who have an understanding of the documentary filmmaking process.
