Documentary collaboration


I come from a background of television research (and some film). I have wanted to develop ideas of mine for a while but work has always got in the way. I am changing that now.. I am trying to develop a few documentaries/ideas.

My question is this. Are there any decent networking events/forums out there in order to meet others who are developing ideas of their own and who want to meet others in the same position? I am an ideas man, but I do work best bouncing ideas off other people. it is sometimes pretty hard to critique/be objective about your own ideas/work. Are there other people who would be interested in either helping each other out in developing their ideas or collaborate on projects (specifically documentary).

Get in touch if means something to you!

  • Hi Will,

    The Shooting People bulletins and forums (like this) are a great way to reach out to other documentary filmmakers. I also suggest you come along to one of our Shooters in the Pub events ( Also, I highly recommend the bi-monthly London event Doc Heads ( which is exactly the kind of thing you're looking for.

    Best of luck!

  • Hi Will. Be happy to chat. I've just finished a feature documentary called Iboga Nights. Successfully crowdfunded the project (first time I'd tried that) and now looking at getting it into film festivals. Done a few broadcast docs too and there are links on my profile page.
    You can email me at: or add me on Facebook if you like. Always happy to speak to fellow documentarians! Good luck with your plans whatever.
