One (ridiculously) simple thing you can do to get your documentary started

Adventures in Filmmaking! As you can imagine, a TON of people reach out to me about their documentaries (or their desire to make a documentary). Here's a very common type of email I receive...  ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌
Hi DesktopDocumentaries,

As you can imagine, a TON of people reach out to Desktop Documentaries about their documentaries (or their desire to make a documentary).

Here's a very common type of email we receive:

"I want to make a documentary and change my life." 

"I want to make a documentary, please tell me how."

Do you notice a pattern?

These good people WANT to make a documentary.

Perhaps you yourself have written a similar email and made a similar comment.

There is certainly nothing wrong with "wanting to do something", but that language is vague and can keep you in the "wanting mode" for months or years, waiting for the perfect moment to start which often never comes. 

Here's what I suggest if you are SERIOUS about making a documentary.

Instead of saying "I want to make a documentary", change your language to "I AM making a documentary."

Using that kind of language is ACTIVE and sends signals to you, your friends, God, the universe, whoever, that this is something that is HAPPENING. 

It doesn't matter if you've shot one piece of footage, but saying that you ARE making a documentary sets powerful things into motion.

Right now, say out loud or think to yourself these words: "I AM making a documentary".

Go ahead...

"I AM making a documentary."

How does that make you feel?

Powerful?

Afraid?

Excited?

These are good signs! It means you want it badly and you are ready.

If you are truly making a documentary, then what are you working on today, at this moment?

Are you writing your script outline?

Are you setting up your next interview?

Are you searching for archival footage?

Are you choosing music?

What can you do at this moment to make it TRUE that you are working on a documentary?

The mental game of making a documentary is just as powerful (if not MORE powerful) than your actual skill level as a filmmaker.

BELIEVE that you ARE making a documentary and be amazed by the power it unleashes.

Hope you enjoyed today's Documentary Tip!
