1 Mini-documentaries are a great way to get a non-profit organization or business’s message or story across in a limited amount of time (2-8 minutes).
2 It is very important that both you and the client are clear on expectations for the mini-documentary.
3 Ask the client why they need a video and what they are expecting it will achieve.
4 As a producer of a mini-doc it is important to conduct sight surveys (where you will be shooting footage and interviews).
5 Conduct pre-interviews. Some people just might not fit the message or help tell the story in the way you are hoping for.

I have been working in television/media for over 16 years. My experience includes news photojournalist, editor, and storyteller. It is my belief that you have a chance to better your skills each time you pick up the camera. I strive to be better than I was yesterday.
