Does your doc have a trailer that is not bringing you money, or worse, no demo at all? Are you stuck with hours of footage and no idea where to start? Do you have a rough-cut that puts everybody to sleep? Have no fear, the doctor is in. With 2 full days of documentary story structure lectures and an evening screening and Q&A complete with handouts, Doing Your Doc is not to be missed.
The workshop, sponsored by the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP), New Orleans Film Society (NOFS) and NOVAC, will be led by Fernanda Rossi, an internationally renowned speaker and story consultant who has doctored over 300 films, including Academy Award© nominees, The Garden, by Scott Hamilton Kennedy and Recycled Life, by Leslie Iwerks including hundreds of trailers, many of which received funding from ITVS, NYSCA and NFB.
