Hello, I thought I share with you guys a question and something I’ve been dying to work on for a while now. I bet you hear this a lot but I have an interesting life that I thought would make a great documentary. I noticed some of the web series on this website are documentary based, so I figured I have a few documentary filmmakers here.
Long story short, I didn’t make this a job posting because I don’t have the funds to pay anyone but just wanted to look for resources and places that might help me to create my dream doc or any advice on how to make a doc. If you wish to know my life story so far it’s that I’m a writer and comedian with Asperger syndrome from Chicago. I’ve studied at The Second City and iO Chicago, I’m one of WGN-TV’s Chicago’s Very Own, I’m a published author but I really think you get the idea.
If I were to find a documentary filmmaker that’ll be great, but if a documentary of my life were made I would love to enter in film festivals alongside the documentary filmmaker and see where that rabbit hole leads too. So to end this long rambling message it’s just I thought I ask for advice on how to make a documentary or documentary short based around my life, what resources and places are available to help me, and which film festivals might be interested in it. Thanks for reading this and hopefully you all have some good advice or can probably just tell me to move on.
