WATCH THE RECORDING

Keith and Peter have designed this workshop to inoculate you against future mistakes!

They will:

  • highlight the most serious errors documentary filmmakers are making today
  • show you how to prevent or recover from them

They have seen the full spectrum of mistakes that limit your film’s audience, revenues, and impact. Worst case, they undercut your opportunities to keep making films.

These mistakes include:

  • losing creative control
  • overlooking major revenue sources
  • making unfair deals with distributors

How many mistakes can this workshop save you from?
