couple of questions regarding treatments:

how long is a documentary treatment typically expected to be?

how detailed should i make it?

any recommendations for doc treatment examples?

thanks.

1. a couple of pages 2. as visual and detailed as you can, given that
you haven't shot it yet and it will inevitably turn out considerably
different than you anticipated (usually for the better) 3. um, there
must be a book out there. if you're in the ny area, you should check
out the aivf library: www.aivf.org

Hi all,

I was referred by the Director of Detroit Docs, a new organization
here in Detroit I work for. We hold an annual doc film fest, a
monthly screening series & director Q&A (starting in April), and
eventually a resource center. Glad to be here!

Hi everyone. Am working in India as a publisher and want to move on
to my first love - Documentaries. Have done a couple and sold them
in India. Time to share my work with others and also see what the
rest of you folks are upto. How does one do that?

Welcome, Amita and Justy! Amita, I suggest you read the conference
we did with Jan Rofekamp last year here about Selling in the
International Marketplace: {LINK NOT IMPORTED} It will tell you much of what you
need to know.

Thanks Doug. I went through the Jan Rofekamp conference. Does it
help to send the synopsis to some buyers/channels directly through
emails? Is it worth taking a chance?
