I had a hard time figuring out what I actually have to write in the producer’s statement. I had a flip through last semester’s TV1 production portfolio to refresh my mind on what’s to be included but it struck me that the documentation is drastically different for a drama versus a documentary. For a documentary, we don’t have to yet be certain on the shooting location as where we will shoot will have to be closely related to where our interviewees work, live, etc. or be even just be a room anywhere for interviewing purpose. We’ve also no longer need to do a casting for actors (unless we later decided to get some for reenactments) as what we will be focusing in our film now is real people with real life experience to show and tell. I will just have to wait for feedback from my tutor in regards to the draft treatment.
