Writing The Documentary Proposal

Transform your documentary idea into a reality by learning how to craft a compelling proposal.

Tuesday, April 18, 2023 | 7:00 - 9:00pm (In person)


Your written proposal is likely your first shot at impressing a commissioning editor or funder so it\'s important to craft a proposal that demands attention. Using real-world examples, students will learn about the various elements of a documentary proposal, how to craft a proposal that stands out amongst the crowd, and practice creating these elements as it relates to a project of their own.
