Objectives of a documentary filmmaker

Intrinsic Lifestyle Productions, currently has the right to write to post pretty much anything and share it with the world.

Freedom of speech! Hell yes!

I’d like take this opportunity to share a reflection.

Here goes…

As an independent female documentary filmmaker, I’m an educator of sorts. Through my digital films, I facilitate a person’s understanding by appealing to their visual as well as auditory senses. A few aspects of documentary filmmaking I feel strongly about are: telling a story without being totally gruesome, overly pedantic or sappy. Audiences are encouraged to think, to be made aware that the film their watching has been constructed; and they should try and reach their own conclusions about the meaning of it all.

    Yes–allowing the viewer to come to their own conclusions! It’s the same with challenge with essay-writing. It’s easy to tell people what to think, but much more interesting–and challenging–to tell a story that leaves space for their own thoughts. I’m so excited to see your final project. Eventually. :)

      I’m working hard on my film about Sound Designer Richard Beggs! Thank you for commenting. As an accomplished and published writer, you speak with authority on the topic of storytelling.
