Hi guys,

I'm a casual documentary fan, as in, when I see them I usually like
them, but not obsessed or anything. I am, however, obsessed with
backpacking (budget travel, not wilderness stuff) and would love to
one day chronical my travels and encounters with others in docu form.
This is just me starting to research into the world of documentaries!

Kirsty, would recommend you check out (if you haven't already):

Pop and Me (http://www.imdb.com/Title?0196002)
and
Hitchhiking Vietnam (http://www.pbs.org/hitchhikingvietnam/)

Assume you're already a fan of the Globetrekker series on PBS (if you
are based in the U.S.)

Kirsty-- funnily enough, we have a D-Word member who is currently
making a doc about "travellers"/ budget backpackers-- she also was/is
one herself (& her cameraman husband as well). Her name is Pegi Vail.
(Not sure she checks in here though.)

Hi there,

This forum is a real find! A wealth of information
exchanged amidst a real sense of community.

My name is Fas, I am 29 years of age and and
I live in London, England. Here's my situation:
I have big ideas but limited resources (sony
pc101, new iMac). I can't help feeling the
professionals amongst you will have heard this
many times before :)

So I'm looking for examples of great, innovative
or just interesting docs made using similar resources.
Any genre.

Doc-making long held strong appeal for me.
Yet it only recently feels that it's become
accessible in terms of resources. I'm
currently putting together a travelogue of a
3 month trip to South America - this will be
my first, a personal doc and steep learning
curve at the same time.

Once I've some basic insight into the craft side
of doc-making, I'd like to explore other ideas.
One that has been fertilising for some time is a doc on
street preachers. Portraits of street preachers -
anyone with a cause. Fanatical in the street, but
ever-so-normal behind closed doors?

Welcome, Fas. "The Target Shoots First" is one example that comes to
mind: www.guyville.com/finer/movies/targetshootsfirst.html

Welcome, James. Let's see, 12,000 min = 200 hours. That's not so
bad ;-)
