What is your interest in documentary production?

I am interested in documentaries as a way of raising awareness of issues and as a way to change people's minds.

What is your experience in documentary production?

None.

What do you hope to learn from meeting with other documentary producers?

I would like to know how they approach the craft and the nature of the challenges they face. I would also like to understand why they are filming. Are they just wanting to share knowledge or are they interested in exposing a hidden truth so that people will respond?

What are a few of your favorite documentaries?

Too numerous to list -- some I would consider fringe docs: Gasland, A Thin Blue Line, Roger and Me, Hoop Dreams, Paradise Lost (Series), Heart of Darkness, The Smartest Guys in the Room, numerous works on the run up to the Iraq war and post invastion as well as works on the economic crisis.

Who are some of your favorite documentary filmmakers?

Unfortunately I can't say I have a favorite at this time.

Introduction

Hello, I am looking forward to meeting you and learning more about your projects and work!
