Writing the Documentary Treatment

Tuesday, April 3, 2023 | 6:30 - 9:00pm

The documentary treatment is an essential part of the development process for a documentary. It visualizes your documentary in written form. It helps to get your ideas on the page, working through potential themes, characters and story angles.

This workshop focuses on writing a treatment, the narrative blueprint for your film. Exercises will bring out your approach and the story's direction and sharpen research for the story you're telling. We will also do exercises that explore your main characters and scene visualization. We conclude with a brief look at loglines that can help crystallize your story.
